Privateer Press has posted an in medias res photo of a fight between the Retribution of Scyrah and Khador. Be careful, it's pretty big! A few of my thoughts on the matter:
- We finally get to see what the Dawnguard Sentinel models look like! They're the ones cresting over the hill running the length of the picture. I think they look really sharp, especially the running model.
- I also think that the Sentinels are led by an as-yet unannounced female warcaster - or at least a solo, given that Vryos is front-and-center in the photo. She's on the right half of the picture, standing by the ruined Iosan column, carrying some sort of two-headed axe weapon. From what I can tell, it's a really badass model.
- In action, the myrmidons look pretty neat.

I'm not sold on the new stuff, they are incredibly well sculpted and capture a very strong anime/mecha look. They look great but I'm not a fan of that style in a steam punk game, they look like they belong in monsterpocalypse they look completely sci-fi as opposed to dirty coal burning boilers and steel. :?

Mage hunters are expected to function in extreme circumstances, such as surviving hand-to-mouth deep in enemy territory while isolated from friendly support. At home in any environment, they learn to scavenge and improvise, and to kill without hesitation. Their first priority is always the elimination of enemy arcanists and mechanikal constructs—which they believe harm Scyrah.

Mage Hunter Strike Force comes in a box (PIP 35014). A player may field two Mage Hunter Strike Force units for each warcaster in his Retribution army.

Product Information
Classification: Unit
PIP Code: 35014
Model Count: 6

I think it's quite refreshing. The factions in 40k are very different... why do the Warmachine ones have to be clones of each other?
Though I understand why some people think they don't belong. It can be annoying when things like that happen, I know. I guess it might be because of the fact I don't play Warmachine, if I was more into the game I'd probably have more of a problem with it.

Veteran teams led by senior commanders are well versed in advanced Retribution techniques. Slipping past the outer defenses of an enemy base, they fire bolts through intervening walls to kill without a trace. Working alongside other soldiers in the Retribution military, these teams apply similar methods to erase vital targets before they can even join battle.

Mage Hunter Commander comes in a blister (PIP 35015). A player may field one Mage Hunter Commander for each warcaster in his Retribution army.

Product Information
Classification: Unit Attachment
PIP Code: 35015
Model Count: 1
Packaging: Blister

While Retribution handlers endeavor to train soulless as soldiers, some are destined to serve another function. Energy flows sent to destroy Retribution soldiers are siphoned into the body of the soulless. If they siphon too much it prompts complete organ failure. Heart and lungs burst from hostile energy pouring into the soulless, while leaving those allies around him untouched.

So - it looks like an elf equivalent of The Dude, and a solo that redirects spells to itself. huh

There's also the fact that a longtime nickname for Eiryss was 'the soulless elven hooker' on the PP forums. Mostly because people despised her ability to live up to the title of mage hunter.

And now? Now the Retribution, Eiryss' native faction, has a Soulless (Elven Male) Escort.

I've no doubt that this is both done on purpose and an excellent indicator of the staid & somber demeanor over at PP.
