Reviews - What do customers think about Warmachine: Apotheosis (Wamachine)?
Don't know Oct 26, 2007
I'd love to tell people how much I love this book, but I paid for it and still haven't recieved it. Mostly because UPS is a terrible delivery company.
Quality game, product, and service... Mar 12, 2006
This latest addition to the Warmachine game world continues the pattern of excellent art, strong writing, and playable game mechanics I've come to expect from this game system. Apotheosis is a great read for the infrequent gamer and a worthwhile investment for the serious player who has the money and time to buy, paint and play using the new models and stats it provides.
My only gripe is the actual size of this book. It is taller and wider than the previous books, which means it does not fit in my current storage case and juts out on the shelf. As a piece of quality art, the book is great. But as a reference book for practical use in travel and game play it's a pain.
Pretty, but less than practical at this point. Feb 15, 2006
However, of the three releases in the series this is the weakest and smallest. Its big on painting tips, pretty pictures, campaign setup information, and storyline but features only a few units.
Even with the release now of this 3rd book, the majority of the units fielded in your average force is primarily fielded from Prime and Escalation. Apotheosis is a good book but not something you want to pick up right away. Any new player and most players who've played for awhile focus entirely on the Prime and Escalation books and they're units.
My personal use for Apotheosis is mainly for painting types and a lot of the storyline for my Privateer Press D20 games. It looks really good, which is the main reason I picked it up. I will admit that the units in Apotheosis are good, but most are only viable in the largest and least common of games. (Tournments don't play high enough point values to allow you the new warcasters)
I do enjoy the game, and I'm sure if the tournment level goes up to the 750 point level. Then I will get a lot more use out of Apotheosis but as long as things continue at the 350 and 500 point level. Its more a very beautiful coffee table book than a useful piece of my collection.
Phenomenal! Nov 17, 2005
This is a gint leap forward in production for Privateer Press. Full color, beautiful art, reference quality paper, and perfect bound; this is what miniature wargaming books should be like. The content is a big step up from previous releases as well, with in-depth descriptions and backstory for some of the games most important and interesting characters. BRAVO!
Makes you ask warhmmer who? Sep 17, 2005
This is an amazing book, in game content, quality, and sheer presentation. If Privateer Press continues to put out this kind of quality it won't be long before we ask WARHAMMER who?
