We’re back with another temptation. This time, it’s Urban Mammoth’s Urban War.
I first saw the game a couple of years ago, I guess, when it was still first edition (there is now V2.0). I wasn’t in the mood to add it to the long list of games I played/bought-and-waiting-to-be-played. So I pretty much ignored it. To be honest, I don’t know too much about the game. All I really know is that it has some pretty fantastic-looking models. Like the Viridians, the first faction I saw and possibly the one I’m most interested in:
Then there’s the Junkers, who also catch my eye, mostly for the pseudo-Roman theme:
There are themes/models I like from some of the other factions, but I think the above two are the ones I’d most likely get.
If I got into the game. Which, well, might just happen. Loy lent me his copy of the rules; other bloggers are talking about; Rob sometimes says he might be interested in it; there’s a great two-factions-plus-rules deal from Urban Mammoth. None of this helps when I’m trying to limit the games I buy into! But if I can keep up painting like I am right now, I might be able to clear up some of these Unpainted Piles and get something new.
Heck, this game might even push Warmachine back a notch! Especially with models like this:
The verdict? Yes to Urban War. I don’t know when, maybe soon. But a yes.
