People can be so judgmental when you have chainsaws for arms.

It seems to me that it would be such a waste to destroy perfectly good robots just because they want to kill you. Admittedly, this sentiment may be born out of a misguided youth spent thinking Terminator 2 was the height of cinema. Still, what does it say about us as a species if we’re really willing to destroy some misguided automaton on the grounds that, if left unchecked, it will end all human life? Nothing good, I should think.

Apologies, by the way, to the fine folks over at Privateer Press for the title of today’s strip. Warmachine  — the spiffo keen table-top wargame — is actually quite a dandy little simulation of heavy metal mayhem, and I daren’t mean to imply that they should cease making it. Quite the opposite in fact, for their robots are fucking siiiiiick.
