That was last year, and ever since I was wondering "hmm, what IS this warmachine thingy"? Anyway my regular gaming group was interested in trying it. I read the rules and they seemed neat, so I bought the book and picked the "Protectorate of Menoth" as my faction owing to their having awesome looking "Warjacks".
The 'Jacks are basically steampowered, magic enhanced robot dreadnaughts that can do lots of damage to the infantry (and each other when buffed). That said infantry is also quite good. Menoth's advantages are they are good at denying the enemy magic, and having lots of melee buffs for their jacks and other troops. Cool stuff. Oh yes, and they are a super religious cult who loves to set stuff on fire. Awesome.
Anyway after a few games, I finally finished painting my initial battlebox. I do have several other figs to paint, but I figured I'd post the first 3 Jacks. They are from left to right, A Revenger Light Jack, a Crusader Heavy Jack, and a Repenter Light Jack. All of them are pretty sweet in combat, although the Repenter's only real claim to fame is that it has a flame thrower template weapon. Not bad, but you can do better I think with other Jacks or infantry (just wait till I finish my Deliverers. Hand held rocket launchers!). I'll have their warcaster controller guy finished soon, and then onto the only "autoinclude" of the army, The Choir of Menoth.
