Official press release by hungerford


If you’ve looked over the Lock & Load GameFest 2017 schedule, you might’ve noticed there is a mysterious hangout with my name attached to it.

I’ve been waiting impatiently to announce the project tied to that hangout, and today is finally the day to do so. The game is called Company of Iron, and it is a new way to play with your WARMACHINE and HORDES models.

If you think the name sounds familiar, that’s because Company of Iron was a league that ran early in 2016. We decided to use the name again because this game is a natural evolution of that league. The new Company of Iron also focuses the action on units and solos, but it adds light warjacks and warbeasts. Also like that league, it allows you to play out small engagements but develops that idea further from the core rules of WARMACHINE and HORDES. Due to the smaller size and focus, it’s a fantastic entry point for new players as well as a great way for current players to dabble in another Faction or two that they might have had their eye on.

The biggest change is in how models activate. Each model in Company of Iron acts independently, and players alternate activating one model each during a round. This makes for exciting games of give-and-take, where plans have to change as the state of the battle evolves.

The game also adds two kinds of cards. Each player chooses a model to be his or her company’s commander, and that commander gains a card representing a specialty. Some commanders excel at focusing on a mission’s objective while others push their force to annihilate the enemy. The other deck of cards represents battle plans and assets your force has access to. Battle plans are powerful effects that each player can use once each round. Among other things, assets allow for rolls to be boosted or rerolled, and there is no limit to the number of assets that can be used in a round.

Company of Iron is launching this fall with a boxed set containing everything two people need to play the game. The rules are based on existing WARMACHINE and HORDES rules but have been edited to reflect the specifics of Company of Iron. In addition to the cards, rules, and tokens, the game also includes miniatures for two 20-point forces along with two brand-new character solos that have never been seen in WARMACHINE or HORDES before: Lieutenant Gwen Keller, a valiant leader of Cygnar’s Stormblades who, in addition to her storm glaive, is armed with electrified grenades, and the Farrow Brigand leader Agata, Queen of Carnage, who some of you are now meeting for the first time in the just-shipped Widower’s Wood Iron Kingdoms Adventure Board Game. Lt. Keller and Agata will both be playable in WARMACHINE & HORDES as well, so be on the lookout for their stat cards to appear in War Room and in our Online Card Database once Company of Iron hits the shelves in October. And don’t miss the expanding Company of Iron content that will be available in every issue of the soon-to-be-revamped No Quarter!

We’ll be talking about Company of Iron in upcoming Primecasts and No Quarter issues as well as showing off the models at Origins next week, but your first chance to actually play the game will be with me at Lock & Load GameFest 2017. If you haven’t registered yet, what are you waiting for?

Adversaries in Shadows over Hammerhal (light spoilers and image heavy)

Tags : warhammer quest shadows over hammerhal rpg

Small thumb evil10

Morning everyone :)

I took pictures of all the adversary stats found within the rule book.
Only the models in the box are actually in the story but you can use exotic adversaries too.
I really like that they included the banner, musician and champion stats for eligible entries.
Now that behavior tables are optional it will be a lot more fun to play for me. But don't forget that enemies activate by group and roll behavior by group, so if you decide to use a behavior the full group must use it.

The monster stats are kind of spoiler but here's the list :

- Chaos Sorceror Lord of Slaanesh
- Kairic Acolytes
- Putrid Blightkings
- Bloodreavers
- Blood Warriors
- Wrathmongers
- Tzaangors
- Tzaangor Skyfires
- Plague Bearers

Dont look further down if you don't want to see the numbers ;)
I croped some behavior table and didn't included the lord stats ^^

/cheers,
Bob!

Sprues from Shadows over Hammerhal

Tags : warhammer quest shadows over hammerhal rpg

Small thumb modelsall

Hello again :)

Sprue pics,
Not much to say on this one,
10 bloodreavers, 10 acolytes, 5 blight kings, 1 chaos sorcerer, 4 heroes and 1 hound.
Usual gw quality (so great quality), note that old scenic square bases are included (editors note via Atia - this is because they are part of the characters sprue, and they won't recut them because of the bases ^.^)

Onto the fluff and image from the books, then the stormcast model!

Hello again :)

Pics of the hero cards and tiles.

Tiles are high quality punch board, double faced, very sturdy, super flat and nothing is bend, with a glossy finish (it's 2 mil large)
Hero cards are the same as the silver tower, with very cool pics of the painted models on the back.

Next is the plastic !

Shadows over Hammerhal is a lot more RPGish !

Tags : shadows over hammerhal rpg archimaine

Hello everyone :)

After a quick look at Warhammer Quest - Shadows over Hammerhall we have some info about the Gameplay/rpg aspect for you:

1) The game is played with a GM, it's a great step forward. You play it with 1-4 players and 1 gamemaster. The GM options are increased and there are quite a few nasty actions you can do (ambushes, getting reinforcements, retreating..)
2) You can buy/sell stuff, visit the town between missions and try different activities (common stuff for PC in a town ^^)
3) Equipment, skills and artefacts look more interesting.
4) The cute Archimaine has to be found if I read correctly (check one of the pics)
5) There are 10 npc stats, they are retro compatible with the silver tower.
6) Check the pics about adversary actions, you see you can ignore the behavior table and play the monster as you decide.
7) 3 levels of difficulty (heroic, legenday, hardcore) hardcore is group wipes = you die
8) A lot of the levels are linked by staircases where you can go deeper or go to the Cinderfall district.
9) You can use all the silver tower heroes.

If you look closely at the different images you can notice the changes, the possible actions etc...

Honestly the game seems 100 times better than the first version (which was good too), and I'm super hyped to try it as a GM. The first campaign is interesting and has a good duration.

The rules look easier and have more depth at the same time!

I think it will be super easy to create extra campaigns/maps as the layout is completely different than the Silvertower.

With the awesome community we have now, I am sure a lot of homemade campaigns are going to spawn!!
Official Expansion packs are easy to imagine too.

I don't say this everyday but, BUY THIS GAME ASAP ^^

next : the models, the books and the map. ( will not spoil the gm only stuff of course)

/hype.
