Unboxing Warzone Resurrection - Cybertronic


With six (soon to be seven) awesome factions that each has their own unique character it's difficult to decide which Mutant Chronicles Warzone Resurrection force is the one for you.

I'm therefore going to do an unboxing (technically an 'unbagging' until they get packaging) on each of those aforementioned factions in order to enable you to come to a (relatively) informed decision. We'll look at the stat, strategy, tactical and gear cards as well as looking at the models in both their unassembled and assembled forms. If there should be any minor assembly issues encountered along the way then we'll cover those as well...

I'm sure you've all seen pictures of things in a bag so we'll skip that bit...

The Cybertronic 'Starter Set' contains enough parts to make one Everassur, ten Chasseurs and a Attila in various configurations. All Starter sets give you a legal army of one Warlord and two units of five 'troops' as well as additionally giving you some kind of Support unit or Light Vehicle as well.

First we'll show you what you get in 'army list' form as well as the minimum and maximum potential unit values that you can make from your starter set. Obviously some units can be increased in size at a later point and their maximum value will increase accordingly.

Warlord (Ranged)- Everassur (210)
No upgrade options.
Troops - Chasseurs x5 (75 Min) (196 Max)
This unit can take up to two Cybernetic Enhancements (55 points total for the most expensive two)
This unit has four upgrade options (66 points total should you take everything though technically one of them does involve replacing the squad leader with a different model that you don't actually have)
Troops - Chasseurs x5 (75 Min) (196 Max)
This unit can take up to two Cybernetic Enhancements (55 points total for the most expensive two)
This unit has four upgrade options (66 points total should you take everything though technically one of them does involve replacing the squad leader with a different model that you don't actually have)
Support - Attila (99 Min) (140 Max)
This unit can take up to two Cybernetic Enhancements (26 points total for the most expensive two)
This unit has one upgrade option at 15 points.

This gives us a points range of 360 points (Minimum OOC of Warlord and two troops) up to 742 for this starter set though your actual figure will most likely be somewhere in the middle.

Onto the actual bits and pieces then...

Unassembled.
We'll look at both sides of the parts 'as they come' without any clean-up in order to give you a complete picture of what you get and what work they need.

Everassur.

Chasseurs.
You get two lots of the pictured parts...

Attila.

We also get a number of resource cards which vary in appearance from faction to faction...


...as well as stat cards for the units in the starter set and a number of 'Strategy', 'Tactical' and 'Gear' cards for use with the advanced rules. Some of these cards are only available with certain models but this is helpfully labelled on each card. Where there are multiple quantities of each card I'll just show one of each type.

Stat Cards.



Tactical, Strategy and Gear cards.
There are often more than one of each card and sometimes as many as three or four but showing the same cards multiple times seemed a bit redundant.

Everassur.

 Chasseurs.

Attila.

Starter.
Strategy.

Tactical.




Gear.

I suppose we should look at them assembled as well.

The models come with appropriate bases but unfortunately they have slots in them but this can be easily rectified. Personally I fill them with hobby store matchsticks then base over them though there's any number of other methods. I haven't based these yet.....


Everassur.



Chasseurs.


 The Chasseurs can be posed in a variety of ways and the arms can easily be posed supporting the gun, down to one side or in a running motion and one is in a nice 'clenched fist' alternative to the usual war-gaming 'leader pointing' pose.


Weapon upgrades.

Attila.


A Group Shot.

    1. Many of the sets are being updated. Some of the newer versions have less parts in them and are more solidly constructed. It's possible you have one of the newer versions.

    1. I'm sure you'll be able to find some of the older ones somewhere if you really want them. Try asking on the forums or Facebook groups.
