Privateer Press announces Sanctifier

Privateer Press gives us a look at the new Sanctifier warjack.

From the gallery:

The Reckoner was heralded as the first warjack entirely of Menite design. It lights the way for the faithful with its cannon as it charges across the battlefield and then smashes anything still standing with its club. Based on the same design, the Castigator brings Menoth’s Fury to its enemies with its flaming fists and the ability to ignite the surrounding air with flesh-cremating heat. The Sanctifier is employed in battle to ensure the spirits of the righteous are ushered to Urcaen; as battle wears on, it becomes a vessel for Menite souls, fueling its power even as it protects the righteous.

    “first warjack entirely of Menite design”
    Looks like every other warjack

    From ‘Menite Design’ to flaming fists to igniting air to protective aura… NONE of these things are even marginally reflected in the model. It looks like just another warjack that is uniquely holding a funky swordaxeclub and a spiked shield.

    Yep. The World of Warcraft Miniatures game is big on the tell but not much on the show.

      Might not be clear from the text, but it’s really referring to three warjacks: The Santifier is the one shown, the Castigator is the one with flaming fists, and the Reckoner has a large club, and a gun.

      PP has moved to having three possible warjacks per box, including the new one, the Santifier, and the other two, which are not pictured.

      By “WOW miniatures game” you are talking about Warhammer right?

      You sound like a “GW fanboy”.

      • Absolutionis

        I dislike Privateer Press because their miniatures never appeal to me.
        Warhammer is meh. Just because I don’t like PP doesn’t automatically make me a fanboy of the other populous camp.

        I’m an Infinity/Malifaux fanboy.

        tl;dr: You’re wrong and you need to back to your level 59 warlock.

          I don’t play RPG’s.

          I am not sure I would describe myself as a fanboy of anything. The word implies uncritical acceptance off whatever you’re a fanboy of, and is not flattering.

      The “first warjack of Menite design” thing is from the fluff. The warjacks from Prime were all constructed using parts bought/stolen from Khador and Cygnar. The Reckoner/Castigator/Sanctifier chassis is the first warjack built entirely using nothing but parts milled in the Protectorate.

      You have a pretty bad eye and very limited breadth of knowledge.

      Someone ban this obvious troll already.

    Yep. Privateer Press is supposed to be adding some new faction.

    Panda’s I think.

  • It’s a fantasy game, All Warjacks look alike in a similar fashion to all cars looking alike with their 4-wheels and hood and windows… why there simply isn’t anything unique about ANY of them….It’s a wonder that anyone can tell the difference between the cars in Nascar, eh?

    Isn’t hyperbole grand?

    Most Warjacks have 2 legs, one head, two arms, one power plant. After that, then there are chassis, stack count, size and shape differences, weapon differences, size and nature of power plants, armor differences, extra bits and bobbles for “unique” jacks… After those “basic” differences, then there are more “out there” differences like “crab jacks” which have 4 legs, snake like jacks… (not many).

    Alot of the stuff looks silly to me, but the game is good for the bang per buck and some of the stuff is no more OTT than other games.

    Let’s keep our posts related to our opinions on the article/post vs. creating character assassinations.

    The plastic Reckoner chassis looks, at first glance, better than the metal one, primarily because the tiny legs syndrome (which is a basic design concept of warjacks) has gotten slightly less prominent on the new plastic kit.
