Warmachine on the Cheap

I've been declining to play Warmachine for years now. It's been so long, in fact, that the game that used to be the young upstart is now a battleworn veteran. Still, nothing had changed over the last ten years that would cause me to reevaluate my position on Warmachine - until Colin happened. Colin is 9 feet, 600 pounds of pure malice. I don't refuse Colin. Also, he offered to sell me a starter set for less than it probably cost to manufacture the thing. That's a recipe for disaster.

And that's what happens.

Colin's evil plan entered Phase Two when his unwitting accomplice, Adam of Redcap's Corner, offered me a demo game. Unfortunately, I enjoyed it. So now my stalwart refusal to try Warmachine has turned to guarded optimism.
