Privateer Press Launches New Northkin Theme Force Expansion

Privateer Press Launches New Northkin Theme Force Expansion

November 8, 2017

Bellevue, WA - Privateer Press is releasing its first-ever theme force for the HORDES tabletop game this November. Theme forces are armies designed around specific military roles that allow players to field armies with a unified aesthetic and rules designed to work together well on the tabletop.

The Northkin theme force delves into the relatively unexplored trollkin culture of these northern trollbloods and features 10 new models for the Faction, including all-new Northkin Raiders, a new warlock Kolgrima Stonetruth, and the massive Hearthgut Hooch Hauler. Additionally, the new Northkin Army Theme Box features the Trollkin Chieftain Valka Curseborn and the new Northkin Bear Handler & Battle Bears. Combined with the currently available Trollkin Battlegroup Starter Box, the theme box allows players to field a complete 35-point Northkin army.

“Since the beginning of HORDES, the Trollbloods have been a proud and determined people, standing firm and stoic in the face of grim adversity,” Executive Director William Shick said. “However, while the Northkin also face the same struggle for survival as their better-known southern kin, these alcohol-swigging, battle-loving, fiery Trollbloods present a wholly different outlook and lust for life. Rather than face the constant warfare surrounding them with grim determination, they actually revel in the chance to constantly test themselves in the crucible of combat. And I think this very different outlook on life really comes through when playing the army on the tabletop.”

The limited-edition Northkin Force Box is available for $189.99 MSRP and contains an eight-page Northkin Primer, which introduces players to the theme force background and rules.

As with all theme force releases, the Northkin Forces is being further supported in the all-new No Quarter Prime magazine, launching alongside of the Northkin Theme Force in November. No Quarter Prime #2 (street date November 22) includes an extensive feature covering in depth the history, culture, and warrior traditions of the Northkin. The theme force feature also includes the rules for the theme force, all-new scenarios and game-modifying rules inspired by the theme force, and a squad list that allows players to play the theme in Company of Iron, Privateer Press’s brand-new skirmish game for WARMACHINE and HORDES, which was released in October of this year.

The Northkin models and army box are available now from Privateer Press and local game stores.

Privateer Press Launches New Tabletop Skirmish Game: Company of Iron

Privateer Press Launches New Tabletop Skirmish Game: Company of Iron

October 25, 2017

Bellevue, WA - Privateer Press is releasing a new tabletop miniatures skirmish game that draws on the existing catalog of WARMACHINE & HORDES models to create a new tabletop game experience: Company of Iron. This highly anticipated game offers players a skirmish experience that requires fewer models and less table space than traditional games of WARMACHINE & HORDES. And while WARMACHINE and HORDES focus on full armies lead by powerful warcasters or warlocks and their battlegroups of warjacks or warbeasts, Company of Iron zooms in to focus on intense, narrative-driven firefights between small forces of soldiers making the game quicker to play and easier to dive into for both new players as well as veterans. In addition, because Company of Iron uses many of the models currently available in WARMACHINE and HORDES, it adds a new dimension to the impressive WARMACHINE and HORDES product line, serving as either a standalone offering or as an expansion to the full-scale games.

“While there is plenty to love about the fast-paced, tactically rich, cinematic gameplay of Company of Iron, the most exciting thing about Company of Iron is the incredible opportunity it offers as both a brand-new, standalone skirmish miniatures game and as a compelling expansion to the WARMACHINE and HORDES experience,” said Privateer Press Executive Director William Shick. “Thanks to its skirmish scale, Company of Iron is perfect for stores and players who are new to tabletop miniatures games, providing a streamlined and easy-to-pick-up yet extremely rich and tactically deep experience with only a handful of models. And for those stores and players who are WARMACHINE and HORDES veterans, Company of Iron provides a whole new way to dive even deeper into the exciting world of the Iron Kingdoms.”

The Company of Iron starter box is available for $74.99 MSRP and contains miniatures, game accessories, and all the rules necessary to start playing right out of the box. This includes: 21 highly detailed miniatures with stat cards, 2 rules booklets and a scenario guide, 40 Command cards, 6 Commander Upgrade cards, 72 different game markers and tokens, an 18” ruler, and 4 six-sided dice. In addition to the boxed game, Privateer is also offering a special on Company of Iron army bundles, featuring the models needed to create a Company of Iron army for ten different WARMACHINE and HORDES Factions. These bundles are currently being offered through distribution and direct to retail at 25% off MSRP (normal MSRP for all items is $678.78 while the bundle is $509.09). Stores can contact their distributor or tradesales@privateerpress.com for more information.

Company of Iron will regularly be supported in the all-new No Quarter Prime magazine, which launched in September, as well as various Organized Play offerings throughout each year. Issues of No Quarter Prime will include squad lists, allowing players to play thematic armies in Company of Iron, and will include new scenarios and special rules for the game as well. Organized Play kits for narrative leagues and special events will also further support Company of Iron with new Commander Upgrade cards, rules, and scenarios exclusive to each event.

The Company of Iron start box is available October 25th from Privateer Press and local game stores.

New from Privateer Press: Direct-to-Consumer Product Line, Black Anchor Heavy Industries

Privateer Press Launches New Direct-to-Consumer Product Line, Black Anchor Heavy Industries

October 20, 2017

Bellevue, WA - In order to meet production demands and make high-end, large-scale WARMACHINE and HORDES models available at reasonable prices to players and collectors, Privateer Press is launching a series of direct-to-consumer hobby models under the new production label Black Anchor Heavy Industries.

These models are among the most expensive to produce and keep in stock, limiting their availability in most locations, so Black Anchor’s first offering, the highly anticipated Dracodile for the Minions Faction of HORDES, is available now for preorder through the company’s website. It will ship in December, just in time for the holidays, and will also be available from Privateer at conventions and events where the company has a retail presence. Its final rules have been posted to the company’s Online Card Database so players can prepare their armies for the model’s inclusion.

“We know some of our models can be quite daunting in size and price,” said Privateer Press Executive Director William Shick. “These centerpiece models, which we expect to be primarily resin pieces, are intended to make an impression when players and collectors bring them to the table or showcase them in their collections. Offering them to our players direct and through a preorder allows us to control production and ensure their availability in the most economical way.”

Each new Black Anchor Heavy Industries (BAHI) model will be available for preorder in limited quantities 4–8 weeks before they ship, and most will be offered with free shipping. Additionally, preorders will receive bonus materials tied to the line. The Dracodile, a gargantuan model shipping December 15th, will come with an exclusive Black Anchor Heavy Industries T-shirt. The preorder window for the Dracodile, which sells for $109.99, closes December 1st. The model will continue to be sold through the Privateer Press Online Store without the bonus T-shirt after the preorder shipping deadline has passed.

Future releases under the Black Anchor Heavy Industries label include the Northkin battle engine Hearthgut Hooch Hauler for a January release and Skarre, Admiral of the Black Fleet, and her Ghost Ship in early spring 2018.

Privateer Press Launches New Trenchers Theme Force Box

October 11, 2017

Bellevue, WA - Privateer Press is releasing its first-ever theme force box for WARMACHINE and HORDES. Theme forces are armies designed around specific military roles and allow players to field a force with a unified aesthetic and rules that are designed to work well together on the tabletop.

The Cygnar Trenchers Theme Force Box is built around the new “Gravediggers” theme force and focuses on the primary infantry of the Cygnar Faction. It features ten new models, including all-new Trencher Long Gunners, Trencher Combat Engineers, and the first playable structure model in WARMACHINE, the Trencher Blockhouse. Additionally, this box features the new solos Commander Anson Hitch and the Patrol Dog. Combined with the currently available Cygnar Battlegroup Starter Box, the theme box allows players to field a complete 35-point Trencher army.

“Like never before, theme forces delve into the iconic military roles of the Factions in WARMACHINE and HORDES,” Chief Creative Officer Matt Wilson said. “With a selection of new models augmenting the existing models in each Faction, the theme forces feel like brand-new armies unto themselves, making what was old new again and ensuring the WARMACHINE and HORDES play environment is always fresh and exciting for our existing players as well as for new players joining our community.”

The limited-edition Cygnar Trenchers Theme Force Box is available for $109.99 MSRP and contains an eight-page primer booklet that introduces players to the background and rules for the Gravediggers theme force.

Theme forces are being further supported in the all-new No Quarter Prime magazine, which launched in September. Each issue of No Quarter Prime will include an extensive feature article covering in depth the history and combat methods of the theme force releasing around the same time. Each of these articles will also include the theme force’s rules, all-new scenarios, and game-modifying terrain rules inspired by the theme, plus a squad list allowing players to play the theme in Privateer’s upcoming Company of Iron skirmish game, also releasing in October.

The new Trencher models and theme force box are available now from Privateer Press and local game stores.
