An Important Announcement Concerning New Steps Toward Product Fulfillment
Since the release of the second edition of its award-winning tabletop miniatures games WARMACHINE and HORDES, Privateer Press has seen explosive growth among its player communities worldwide. The excitement generated by our games has never been higher, and demand has quickly outpaced our production ability. In response, we have expanded our efforts to make our products as easily available as possible.
While Privateer has continued to supply new releases on time, fulfilling the high volume of back orders can require substantial wait times. In an attempt to produce and ship orders faster, over the last year we have more than doubled the size of our production staff, significantly expanded our manufacturing capabilities to include an all-new resin casting department, and converted more of our line to plastic. These efforts have significantly increased our production ability, and we are now shipping record-breaking amounts of product from our Bellevue facility.

Additionally, Privateer recently announced that we will push back our new releases that had been slated for August in order to concentrate on filling back orders. With the expected surge in demand that usually accompanies our summer convention efforts, Privateer will also offer only limited new releases for the months of October and December to further increase the amount of back order fulfillment.

Finally, to better support players we will be implementing a new order system this fall that will ensure the core items for every faction will be readily available. The new order system will provide faster fulfillment on the essential products for both WARMACHINE and HORDES, so players will have access to everything they need to build a complete army and begin playing with their new faction right away. Items that are not part of the core list will continue to be available but will be subject to longer fulfillment times until our manufacturing capacity can be expanded to handle the high demand.

Privateer Press will continue to focus every effort toward improving the rate of our back order fulfillment. We thank you for your patience as we continue to support our rapidly growing WARMACHINE and HORDES communities around the world.

I think this is a great move by PP. Everyone will be able to get any model they want, old and new, from now on.
Shows how popular the games has become over the last few months aswell.

 Privateer have just posted the clear and full versions of the artwork for a couple of the Hordes: Domination Warlocks in todays Insider Blog
Circle Orboros - Epic Baldur the Stonesoul

Skorne - Master Ascetic Naaresh

To finish off todays post, my latest little Warjack conversion.
Im trying to make all of the Merc Warjacks match the Pirate theme and fit in with the Mariner and Freebooter.
So here it is,
Mariner Style Nomad

Based on the Nomad torso with Mariner legs, head and converted weapons from the bits box.
What do you think?
The next one is going to be another Nomad but styled from the Freebooter. Then onto the Mules

Thats all for now then
