My Revenge on the Warmachine Community

I do have some pet peeves, I admit it.

One of them is nicknames people give to warcasters and warlocks. And other units too, maybe.

If the nickname is a straightforward abbreviation then there's no problem for me. But if they twist and mangle the original name in attempt to be funny, I get annoyed.

Way back in first edition of Warmachine I was already tormented by Asphyxious being shortened to Gaspy. All the sleepless night I spent because of that horrific nickname.

Well, another one has appeared that equals Gaspy.

It's Goatvahna. I guess that's better than seeing her name in many possible way to mistype Morvahna, but still... it's Morvahna, damnit!

Right. So here was supposed to be some kind of revenge? I finished painting my Morvahna2. Pictures are cruddy, but hopefully the main idea can be seen anyway. You call her Goatvahna? You get a Goatvahna!

By the way. If anyone knows any good courses or camps or things like that where I can practice my revenge skills, I'd be more than happy to hear from them.


  1. I loathe abbreviations of names and nicknames for units and models. It is annoying and lazy. Plus if you are just getting into a game you have no idea what people are talking about. It confuses new players. It can also make you sound like a douche too.

    1. Aye. I must confess I do actually use Denny for Deneghra myself, but that one is pretty straightforward abbreviation and not a horribly mangled nickname.
