Community Integrated Development is going well !
Hello again everyone !
A little update on the CID (open beta using player feedback) by Privateer Press.
There was a lot of doubt and whine after PP closed their forum (general and faction section) and created a new open beta forum (with very strict rules). But now that rage settled down Will Shick comment on how the CID is going and announce the next phase of the CID :
Going into open beta :
-Battle engine UP (more power and more box 30-38)
-Steam Roller 2017
To be honest i am actually surprised at the quality of the exchange on the CID forum, the feedback is real and tester are super invested. It look like a huge success but i prefer to wait to see how ppl behance when we go into faction specific buff and nerf.
Insider : http://privateerpress.com/community/privateer-insider/insider-3-22-2017
What do you think of this as a player ? could it be adapted to 40K ? Aos ? We already have some sort of beta with the AOS points value from general handbook2.
Privateerpress launch the Community Integrated Development today !
Hello everyone !!
Something big is happening today, an event that could change our world forever or destroy us !
Open beta & play testing for miniature games by the community !!!
Yea you heard it right, PP (Warmachine creator) is trying a open beta for their new limited faction (a small independent faction) .
Insider explaining it :
Pdf file "How to play test"
My 2cents on CID
It's good because you can easily find broken or completely OP units combo, in not even 10 days you get this sorted and can focus on the fine tuning.
It's bad because everything strong could be make too bland by forum warriors (every forum have them ^^) that are not even playing/testing actively .
Anyway, we will see how it goes ...
New horde faction revealed
Hello everyone !!
Warmachine new faction : the grymkin !!
Look like a mix of Halloween/zombie/jail meet tim burton but without JD
I am no cryx player but i can imagine them angry
(ps: cryx is very close to the concept presented, and was nerfed hard to make place for this faction.)
new type of warlock/caster, they don't have a feat but have trigger that can unleash strong power !.
They are basically 5 entity that refused Menoth (main god) and were banished to hell.
And now they are back, released by the old witch (baba yaga like). Old witch is both a caster for Khador, a warlock for Grymkin (and the only one to have a feat)
New Faction is Grymkin
6 casters, the original men who defied Menoth at the creation of the world
No feats in the faction
3 warbeasts revealed, an offensive heavy that gains power with kills, defensive heavy that seems to torture models to support casting (upkeeps, has arcane vortex), anti-infantry light
Hollow men - ranged infantry. Deserters from various armies
Pig Men - Gluttons. Impervious flesh, melee infantry
Some farmer guys or something. Melee troops that collect enemy corpses and can give them to allies
4 warlocks revealed:
The Child - Front line caster, little girl with a "doggie" that she sends to murder people. Can "set the world on fire" if you break her toys.
The Dreamer - Can't really figure this one out, but she "puts enemies to sleep (knockdown) and kills them with their nightmares"
The Heretic - Infantry support, anti-magic.
Old Witch2 is Both a Grymkin Warlock and Khador Caster. Has a feat
Warmachine Dynamic Update
Hello everyone !!
PP just released a dynamic update thing read nerf to the 2 top list : 2una and High reclaimer and a few correction.
Dev note :
Updated errata document :
Updated card page (yea rules a free now) :
nerf details :
Una feat only last a turn not a round (or the opposite) anyway it's shorter now.
HR : can't threat 28"
griffon lost long leash.
Khador winterguard theme : gun carriage out of the sacrificial pawn, Advance move for 1 jack per winterguard unit.
For once it was not too heavy and well deserved.
New Warmahordes release
Morning everyone !!
Latest release from PP
Spear throwed by Azrael is the strongest gun in the game (it's a lance) ^^
New Warmachine mk3 spoiler
Morning everyone !
-Caine 3 painted : warcaster unit, merc + partisan cygnar.
Model look good but the proportion head/legs seem off, but maybe it's only the image. I think it's the image because only caine is weird, in fact he remind me Thunderbird puppets.
kaya3 : Really strong, synergies + perma conceal + reposition.
Reap What you sow
Morning everyone !!
There is a nice countdown for the new Horde faction : http://privateerpress.com/reap-what-you-sow
Circle Orboros Command
Hello everyone !
Circle command book is coming :
The Circle Orboros is humanity's most ancient organization, composed of powerful mystics who watch over natural places. While few in number, these druids wield the forces of nature and call upon savage beasts of the wilds such as ferocious warpwolves, agile griffons, and bounding satyrs. The druids can even bind the very stones into fearsome constructs ready to fight for the Circle. Alongside these fearsome warbeasts, human tribes known as Wolf Sworn stand ready with spear and crossbow to fight for their blackclad masters. Together the forces of the Circle Orboros teach all who trespass upon their lands to fear the power of Orboros.
Forces of HORDES: Circle Orboros Command provides the foundation you need to take up the work of this powerful and ancient order with:
• Complete rules and profiles for the mighty warlocks and savage warbeasts of the Circle Orboros, including two new warlocks and a new character warbeast.
• Detailed history and background information, including an in-depth look at Circle warlocks and warbeasts.
• A painting guide full of tips and inspiration to help you create an army as individual as you are.
• Two new theme forces that allow you to create specialized Circle Orboros armies with specific benefits.
release : 08 fev, soft orhardcover 32$ or 42$

Hello everyone !

It was so important that they made an errata for the faction.
Warmachine theme force release
Hello again !
Theme force release by PP :
Theme forces are a defining aspect of WARMACHINE & HORDES, and it’s about time that everyone gets their hands on one in the new edition. As the new Command books begin to roll out for the majority of the Factions in the game—each of which contains new theme forces—we decided we didn’t want to make certain Factions go months without a single theme force while others enjoyed access to several.
With that in mind, the PDF at the end of this Insider contains a new theme force for each Faction that does not currently have at least one . For example, you’ll notice that there isn’t a Trollbloods theme force in this document, and that’s because Forces of HORDES: Trollbloods Command just released. All of the theme forces we’re giving you today are immediately legal for organized play, and we hope you have as much fun playing them as we have had crafting them!
