Warmachine Two-Player Battle Box (plastic)
MSRP $99.99 PIP 25001
The mighty forces of the northern Khadoran Empire are bolstered by their ideals of strength and resilience in their clash with the devout and zealous crusaders of the Protectorate of Menoth. At the center of this titanic clash, the deadly Kommander Sorscha Kratikoff leads an elite strike force of powerful Khadoran warjacks and soldiers against the holy knights of the Protectorate of Menoth led by their champion High Exemplar Kreoss and his personal retinue of warjacks.
Warmachine is a fast-paced and aggressive 30 mm tabletop miniatures battle game set in the steam-powered fantasy world of the Iron Kingdoms. Take control of an elite soldier-sorcerer called a warcaster and his mighty warjacks—massive steam-powered combat automatons—as you battle to destroy the enemy warcaster.
This Two-Player Battle Box (PIP 25001) Contains Everything You Need For A Two- Player Game: Complete Prime Mk II rules in a travel-sized booklet (86 pages), introductory guide, dice, ruler, and 17 plastic Warmachine models with corresponding stat cards.

Cygnar Archduke Runewood, Lord of Fharin Character Solo (white metal) MSRP $13.99 PIP 31081
Among Cygnar’s greatest living battlefield generals, Archduke Alain Runewood has given up the comfort and safety of his estates in aid of his country and his king. Wherever his command fights, Runewood leads from the heart of battle. His tactical acumen is finely honed, and his inspiring presence pushes his sword knights to fight fearlessly in the face of even the most dangerous foe.
The Archduke Runewood, Lord of Fharin character solo comes in a blister (PIP 31081). A player may field one Archduke Runewood in a Cygnar army.

Cygnar Sentinel Light Warjack
(plastic) MSRP $18.99 PIP 31088
Outfitted with an infantry-shredding chain gun, the Sentinel fills an essential role on the battlefield. Its rapid-fire weapon enables it to cut down swathes of the enemy, making it invaluable against charging platoons of Winter Guard, tides of Menite zealots, or waves of Cryxian mechanithralls.
The Sentinel light warjack comes in a box (PIP 31088). A player may field any number of Sentinels in a Cygnar army.
Special Note PIP 31088 contains the same Mk II stat card as PIP 31008. The model in this box represents the same figure in the game. However, the model in PIP 31088 is a new sculpt and therefore looks different from the model found in PIP 31008. In addition, this model is plastic rather than metal. PIP 31008 will no longer be available from Privateer Press beginning September 1, 2011.

Protectorate of Menoth Vessel of Judgement Battle Engine  
 (white metal and resin) MSRP $84.99 PIP 32073
Each Vessel of Judgment is a reliquary containing the sacred remains of one of the Menite priest kings of old and is capable of the most potent manifestations of Menoth’s power on Caen. The blazing fury of the Creator scourges infidels who venture too close, and the faithful who fall in battle around it can stave off death long enough to strike one last blow for their god.
The Vessel of Judgment battle engine comes in a box (PIP 32073). A player may field two Vessels of Judgment for each warcaster in a Protectorate of Menoth army.
Protectorate of Menoth Redeemer Light Warjack (plastic) MSRP $18.99 PIP 32083
Armed with devastating long-range rockets, the Redeemer was designed to deliver judgment from afar. The warjack’s deadly projectiles are launched into enemy ranks to explode in a cascade of deadly debris that leaves enemy infantry blasted, burned, and praying for the release of death.
The Redeemer light warjack comes in a box (PIP 32083). A player may field any number of Redeemers in a Protectorate of Menoth army.
Special Note PIP 32083 contains the same Mk II stat card as PIP 32008. The model in this box represents the same figure in the game. However, the model in PIP 32083 is a new sculpt and therefore looks different from the model in PIP 32008. In addition, this model is plastic rather than metal. PIP 32008 will no longer be available from Privateer Press beginning September 1, 2011.

Khador Man-O-War Bombardiers 
 (plastic) MSRP $44.99 PIP 33067
Each Man-O-War bombardier is a self-contained mobile artillery unit able to devastate an opponent with explosive fire or tear them to pieces with the massive chain blade affixed to his cannon. Girded in steam- powered armor, bombardiers shrug off incoming fire that would cripple or kill a lesser soldier while the shrill, metallic whine of their chain blades announces inexorable destruction to the enemies of Khador.
The Man-O-War Bombardiers unit comes in a box (PIP 33067). A player may include one Man-O-War Bombardier unit for each warcaster in a Khador army.
 After a long wait, they are finally here! I expect to see alot of these on the battlefield come September

Cryx Nightwretch Bonejacks
(plastic) MSRP $19.99 PIP 34089
The dreaded Nightwretch is a staple of the Cryxian arsenal. First unleashed on the mainland at the end of the Scharde Invasions, the murderous machine has been a nightmare of Iron Kingdoms coastal defenders ever since. Packing an arc node and a devastating short-ranged cannon, the fast-moving bonejack can bring death to the enemy from any direction.
Two Nightwretch bonejacks come in a single box (PIP 34089). A player may field any number of Nightwretches in a Cryx army.
Special Note PIP 34089 contains the same Mk II stat cards as PIP 34007. The models in this box represent the same figure in the game. However, the models in PIP 34089 are a new sculpt and therefore look different from the model in PIP 34007. In addition, these models are plastic rather than metal. PIP 34007 will no longer be available from Privateer Press beginning September 1, 2011.

Mercenary Sylys Wyshnalyrr the Seeker
(white metal) MSRP $11.99 PIP 41089
An Iosan scholar versed in the arcane arts, Sylys Wyshnalyrr barters his talents to the armies of the Iron Kingdoms in exchange for access to their libraries and safe passage across their lands in his search for clues to the mystery of the vanished and ailing Iosan gods. Even the most puissant warcaster would find his own sorcerous ability strengthened given Sylys’ attention and gain an invaluable edge in battle.
The Sylys Wyshnalyrr, the Seeker character solo comes in a blister (PIP 41089). A player may field one Sylys Wyshnalyrr in a Cygnar, Khador, Retribution of Scyrah, or Mercenary army.
 Sylys is a great looking model. And he rules are even better! Bartolo and Fiona cant wait to hire him in my forces!

Trollblood Trollkin Warlock Jarl Skuld, Devil of the Thornwood (white metal) MSRP 17.99 PIP 71059
Jarl Skuld is an infamous bandit and highwayman who has become an unlikely guerilla leader among the desperate trollkin remaining in the Thornwood. A skilled gunfighter, Skuld uses a pair of customized, rune-scribed pistols to deadly effect. With lightning raids and devastating ambushes against Cryx, Khador, and other enemies of his people, Jarl Skuld has truly earned the moniker “Devil of the Thornwood.”
The warlock Jarl Skuld, Devil of the Thornwood comes in a blister (PIP 71059). A player may field one Jarl Skuld, Devil of the Thornwood in a Trollblood army.

Circle Orboros Warlock Grayle the Farstrider
(white metal) MSRP TBD PIP 72058
A powerful scion of a family with deep roots in the ancient lines of the Wolves of Orboros, Grayle the Farstrider was trained as a Wolf until he experienced the wilding. As a druid, he has proven his worth and skill as a trusted strike force leader and an unrelenting warrior who simply does not know failure. In battle Grayle embodies the wolf and moves from target to target with vicious speed and efficiency like a predator in human form whose blades strike with the feral precision of a hunting beast.
The warlock Grayle the Farstrider comes in a blister (PIP 72058). A player may field one Grayle the Farstrider in a Circle Orboros army.
Maybe this pic?

Legion of Everblight Warlock Kallus, Wrath of Everblight
(white metal) MSRP TBD PIP 73058
Created by Everblight through his chosen servant Thagrosh, Kallus is a simulacrum crafted to house a shard of the dragon’s athanc. His flawless form is matched only by his battle prowess. Kallus, Wrath of Everblight is a terror in combat whose fearless certainty of his own immortality lends him unflagging stamina and resolve that he imparts to the blighted Nyss he leads into battle.
The warlock Kallus, Wrath of Everblight comes in a blister (PIP 73058). A player may field one Kallus, Wrath of Everblight in a Legion of Everblight army.
Possibly this one?

Skorne Warlock Master Ascetic Naaresh
(white metal) MSRP $13.99 PIP 74058
A warrior-philosopher who seeks enlightenment through his own extreme suffering, Master Ascetic Naaresh has unlocked the powers of pain and forged them into a unique and devastating fighting style. Eager to challenge the limits of his philosophy against new foes, Naaresh has left his isolation to seek battle in the west. Before each engagement he submits to the ministrations of his paingivers so that he may draw strength and skill from the agony.
The warlock Master Ascetic Naaresh comes in a blister (PIP 74058). A player may field one Master Ascetic Naaresh in a Skorne army.
Same again, could this be him?

Minion Warlock Maelok the Dreadbound
(white metal) MSRP TBD PIP 75037
The gatorman warlock known as Maelok the Dreadbound exists in a torturous state of undeath as an animated corpse bound to the will of another. Despite his decaying physical form, Maelok is still a mighty bokur who can return slain allies to life, steal the souls of the living, or connect to the spirit world to transform his army temporarily into ghostly horrors unimpeded by flesh, stone, or steel.
The warlock Maelok the Dreadbound comes in a blister (PIP 75037). A player may field one Maelok the Dreadbound in a Circle Orboros, Legion of Everblight, Skorne, Trollblood, or Blindwater Congregation army.
 Really looking forward to this one. His fluff text sounds awesome and I think he will be a great addition to my Blindwater force. He is going on advance order as soon as possible.
Cant wait to see what sort of creatures he brings with him aswell.

Journeyman League Core Kit
MSRP $39.99 PIP 99091
The Journeyman League for Warmachine and HORDES is Privateer Press’ first official slow-grow league. This league is designed to encourage new players to begin learning the game with their chosen faction’s battle box and then expand their collection over the course of six weeks. The Journeyman League rewards both the player’s in-game victories and their skill with a brush. In fact, eager hobbyists can enter the league and score points just for assembling and painting their models.
The Journeyman League is also a great event for veteran players looking to start a new army. For veteran players the Journeyman League offers a fun way to build their new faction as well as some unique prizes to add to their collection. The prizes for this league, a set of patches that form a Steelhead military rank, are unique to the Journeyman format. Each player will earn the center patch for joining the league, and as he progresses through the weeks and earns more points, he earns new rank patches and maybe even special championship awards to add to the centerpiece patch.
The Journeyman league core kit (PIP 99091) contains 8 centerpiece patches and 24 rank patches plus 3 different championship patches—enough for 8 players to participate in the league.
This price includes all U.S. shipping costs. International shipping will incur a $5.00 shipping fee per kit.

Journeyman League Reinforcement Kit 
MSRP $19.99 PIP 99092
The Journeyman league reinforcement kit (PIP 99092) contains 4 centerpiece patches and 12 rank patches, allowing you to add 4 players to your league.
This price includes all U.S. shipping costs. International shipping will incur a $5.00 shipping fee per kit.

Now this league sounds fun. I can garuntee it will be running at North Cornwall Beasts and Bionics.
The selection of patches will be a great addition to. Something for people to keep pushing towards.
Now... what new army to start for it? Hmmmm 

No Quarter Magazine #38

  1. That starter set is just fantastic value and I'm really excited to pick one up if I get the chance. I think GW will have to step up their starter set to compete with this one, especially if PP comes out with a Cryx vs Cygnar set as well. Fingers crossed :-)

  2. I think someone worked out the contents at around $240 all for $99.99.
    Not sure if there will be a Cygnar / Cryx box yet but if this one goes well they may think about it.
