Nomad (by ElDave)

"Oh, it may be simple, yah, but we dogs like the Nomad. Tough, tenacious, really bears down and tears things up... heh, just like us, eh boys? Why, even the name suits our way of life!"

From Warmachine: Escalation
Before Distruption, alchemical freezing, and technological development became the deciding factor in 'jack warfare - the sword was law. In those days it was not the efficiency of an engine or the composition of the frame; it was how much wreckage a warjack could create before becoming a wreck itself. That was the era of the Nomad, but the old 'jack never did say quit, and it can still be found in service today.

The Nomad is a wargaming miniature produced by Privateer Press.

I'm not 100% happy with this one; the angle is boring and he looks too small. Looks like I'll have to go in for more reshoots.

Oh darn, I have to take more pictures.
