Does anyone here play warmachine?  Thinking about getting into and I value the opinions of people here more than fanboys on the PP forum.

What are y'all's take on the game?

I love the models, I love the fluff, I like the way the rules work.
I just suck at it, and now and then when I play and get beaten badly it puts me off playing it for a while.

Thanks for the info.  Mainly trying to get a table top game to play with my 12yo son.  So we will be learning it together.  So that should help us both take turns losing rather than being constantly destroyed by vets at the gaming store.

Not sure it's the right game for you or your son to be honest - it's designed to be powergamed, everything is broken in one sense or another, and there is a deliberate "rock, paper, scissor" element to the game.

And it has the infamous "page 5" http://shin14n.blogspot.co.uk/2005/12/page-5.html (this seems to be a direct copy).


All that said, you know your son and your taste in gaming a whole lot better than anyone else, if you feel you can min/max etc with the best of them, then go for it.
