A Question for all my Readers..........

I have been thinking about my blog. And the sort of things people would like to see on it.
I have also started to venture into a couple of other small skirmish tabletop games.

So the question to all my followers, veiwers, random clickers and people who happen to stumble apon this post is - 

Would you like to see some other games on here aswell or would you rather I kept to just Warmachine and Hordes?

If you want to see others I will alter the name a little obviously. And I was thinking about adding
Pulp City - Alternate Earth modern super heros and villains - Pulp City models + news and my own models, games, reveiws and such
Malifaux - Alternate dimension vitorian horror/steampunk - My own models, games and thoughts.

And Maybe (if people want to see it)
Cutlass / Legends of the High Seas - Historical and fantasy Pirates
Necromunda - Using Heresy miniatures

What do you think?
It wouldnt be instead of Privateer Press but as well as. (I couldnt give up my Mercs and Minions. Love them too much)
Shoot me a comment below and let me know.
Or even let me know what sort of Warmachine and Hordes posts you would like to see on here.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Journeyman League in Todays PP Insider

Privateer Insider Blog has info on the upcoming Journeyman SLow Grow League today. Including the prize patches!
You can see the entire post >>HERE<< or below.

The wait is nearly over. The new Journeyman slow-grow league is almost upon us! This format is the perfect venue for new recruits to get their battlegroups on the battlefield and for seasoned veterans to try their hands at a new faction.

This league will take players from a battlegroup box set all the way up to a full 35-point army of their own design. As players earn ranks, they are also competing for three separate awards: Destroyer, Creator, and Journeyman. I think the Creator award is especially cool, as it is awarded for the player with the most Hobby points. What are Hobby points? You gain those by painting your new force!

Concerned that you want to start a faction that doesn’t have an official battlegroup box set? Don’t be! We’ve created battlegroup equivalents for every faction, including Mercenary contracts and Minion pacts. Whether you want to join the Blindwater Congregation or sign up for the Khador Empire, we’ve got you covered.

We’re so excited about this event that we’re going to be holding a staff Journeyman league. Community Coordinator Simon Berman will be posting all the details in upcoming Insiders.

Personally, I’ll be starting a Thornfall Alliance force. I already own everything currently released for the Blindwater Congregation, so I might as well go all in and complete my Minions collection. Week 1 begins with battlegroup games only, so I’ll be looking to make the most out of Lord Carver, his War Hog, and his two Gun Boars.

I’m really excited about switching casters later in the league, I can’t wait to play the new farrow warlock Sturm & Drang. It’s going to be awesome to figure out creative ways to get the most out of his spell list … both of them.

Anyway, look for upcoming Insiders to see who walks away a Journeyman, and who limps away crying.
Oh yeah, and here’s what the Journeyman prizes look like. Kind of snazzy don’t you think?

Thats looks like alot of fun. And Im VERY pleased they now have official Battlebox lists for all the Merc and Minion Contracts and Pacts.
The patches are very nice aswell. Im sure we wil be running this localy soon. 
My choice for it? Well, Im going to go for the sam as Will. Farrow!
And did anyone else spot that Sturm and Drang has TWO spell lists? Hmmmm

PP Insider - Sturm and Drang Rules Teaser / Spoiler

 Todays Privateer Insider blog post has something very special in. 1 of the cards for the new Farrow Warlock Sturm and Drang. You can see it below or >>HERE<<
Insider 8-22-2011

Last week, Sturm and Drang, the newest Farrow warlock was shown in all his two-headed glory to the world on the Privateer Press website. Of course, keen observers had no doubt already seen images of this kick-ass warlock floating around the internet since he was painted live at our Gen Con 2011 booth by studio painter extraordinaire Matt Dipietro.

It's my pleasure to let our great community know that Sturm and Drang will be making one more star appearance, this time as a special convention pre-release this weekend, August 26-28, at the Privateer Press booth, #Sky 5 at PAX Prime.

And just like all of our Domination pre-release warlocks, players who pick up Sturm and Drang at PAX will receive a special edition stat card!

We look forward to seeing everyone this weekend at PAX Prime, and be sure to take part in our PAX WARMACHINE and HORDES Masters event this Saturday, as well as our Iron Arena events all weekend!. More details can be found here.

Very interesting. And cant wait to see the spells and feat. Looks like a lot of fun to use.
Now, all I need to do is get a friendly American thats going to PAX. Hmmmmm......

Sturm & Drang Official Preveiw and Fluff

Privateer have made one Badger very happy today with the official preveiw of the new Minions Farrow Warlock from Domination. Models PP page and 360 Veiw Here

Sturm & Drang

The monstrous creation called Sturm and Drang is proof of Dr. Arkadius’ mad genius. The key to this breakthrough was placing two strong wills in opposition. Psychic feedback crackles between their minds, driving them into a battle frenzy of escalating power. Engineered to dominate and subjugate, the pair have perfect command over the war hogs of the farrow and can unleash magic of mind-rending power and explosive force.

What a stunning model. Really looking forward to getting my hands on this beast.
And a great bit of fluff about him aswell. Hints at a Beast Lock but also a spell slinger. What will the rules be? Who knows! But I know I want it!

The link to the 360 veiw is at the top of this post but I couldnt resist taking afew snaps to show off this model a little more.

Dont know if you can tell but IM very pleased and excited about this one.
What do you think about it?

Whats this Breast Cancer Brawl and Painting Pink all about?

So, a couple of people have asked me about the planned Breast Cancer Brawl and Paint it Pink event thats coming on Oct 15th.
I thought I would put together a post explaining what its all about.
All info have been taken from, and

What is the Breast Cancer Brawl?

The Breast Cancer Brawl is an effort to raise money for breast cancer research, advocacy, education, and support organizations. The event is a fantasy table-top miniatures tournament and… painting competition using the popular WARMACHINE and HORDES game systems.Entry fees to the event are donated to the breast cancer organization being sponsored. In addition, a unique tournament format is used to encourage additional donations throughout the tournament so that friendly competition can benefit a good cause. Privateer Press, the creators of the WARMACHINE and HORDES game systems and miniature lines, provides prize support for the event including special prizes for the tournament winner and the most generous donor.
The Breast Cancer Brawl is global in scope with charity tournaments happening around the world annually from September to December. With enough events, we all hope to do our part to help “knock out breast cancer”.
For more info contact -

About the Breast Cancer Brawl Team

The idea for this project began in 2007 with a tribute project – one member of the Breast Cancer Brawl team wanted to paint one of his collected miniatures armies in pink in remembrance of his mother who had passed away from breast cancer. From there, it
quickly gathered volunteers to the idea and grew to a global effort. The Breast Cancer Brawl Team is a group of dedicated
Privateer Press fans that have volunteered to organize and administrate the global Breast Cancer Brawl events. Many of us have been personally touched by breast cancer in one way or another in our personal lives and this is just one way we are helping to raise awareness and fight the disease.

Whats Paint it Pink about?

Breast Cancer is one of the most common and deadliest cancers among women. This is your chance to do your part to raise awareness while enjoying your hobby. Inspired by the dedicated painters at the hobby blog Paint Pink. The 2011 Paint It Pink painting contest is designed to help promote breast cancer awareness through the miniature wargame hobby. Simply paint one miniature or an entire army using pink as a prominent color, and enter your work into any appropriate categories.
Each painter may only enter once for each category, but may enter multiple works by entering into multiple categories.
Any questions can be directed to
Project: Paint Pink

Project: Paint Pink was started in March 2009 as a way to provide support and encouragement for Warmachine and Hordes players who are painting armies to promote breast cancer awareness. It is designed for new and veteran players and painters alike.
The goal of Project: Paint Pink is to motivate players and painters to complete their armies in time for Breast Cancer Brawl events held in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Players have the option to keep the armies they paint or auction them off for charity and donate the proceeds toward promoting breast cancer awareness. You are not required to auction your army to be a part of Project: Paint Pink

The Minions 'Swamp Horror' Surfaces!!!!

Todays Privateer Press Insider Post from Will Hungerford has something stunning in it. The Blindwater Swamp Horror Heavy Warbeast. Check out the link or see below.

HORDES: Domination has me psyched about the new possibilities to expand my Blindwater Congregation force. What can I say, having been born and raised in Louisiana, I think flesh-eating gator monsters are cool. Especially flesh-eating gator monsters with a voodoo flair!
A few weeks ago, we previewed the art for Maelok the Dreadbound, the new Gatorman warlock. I really love all the options I now have in terms of warlock playstyles for my army. Now I’ve got Bloody Barnabas for brute force, Calaban, the Grave Walker for arcane trickery, and Maelok the Dreadbound for some vicious, VICIOUS, undead nastiness.
As excited as I am for the upcoming release of Maelok, I’m just as excited about the other new releases in HORDES: Domination. For those of you who made the trek to Lock & Load, you may have seen this unholy monstrosity being previewed near the tournament area. For those of you who missed Lock & Load this year, check it out!

This new heavy warbeast, the Swamp Horror, is an amazing addition to the Blindwater Congregation’s arsenal. I can’t wait to get it on the tabletop and watch my opponents cringe in terror as it rips through their lines. I don’t want to give away too much this early, so be sure to check out the Swamp Horror and all of the other awesome new hotness when HORDES: Domination releases this fall.

WOW! I want it! No, I want 2 of them! Atleast!
Really looking forward to Domination. I think my Minions will be very happy with it.
