Warmachine and Hordes – New Edition and Preordering!

April 26th, 2016

Warmachine and Hordes is about to begin a brand new edition of the game.  If you haven’t heard anything about this yet, check out the teaser trailer Privateer Press put out a few weeks ago:

A brand new edition of a game is an exciting time for the game community, especially with Warmachine, a game built on well written rules and which hasn’t had a new edition in six years.  As previously posted we will be moving the start date of our Call to Arms for Warmachine to June 12th, to coincide with the global release of the rules for the new edition of the game.  Cards for all the models in each faction will also be available in new decks on June 29th.  New Battleboxes for nine of the factions, including a small copy of the rulebook, a playing mat, brand new warcasters/warlocks, and their battlegroups will be available at the same time.  To celebrate this release we’re offering players who purchase a deck of cards and a battlebox for their faction a free field kit–superglue, a dry erase marker, card sleeves, and an assembly guide (while supplies last).

The new edition will feature free rules for the game online, but they are also releasing a rulebook for both Warmachine and Hordes entitled Prime and Primal.  These high-end hardcover rulebooks will include printed copies of the rules available digitally, but will also include a world setting overview, Faction setting overviews, Faction model entry sections, a hobby section, and a model gallery.

We strongly encourage pre-ordering the new products for the newest edition of Warmachine and Hordes.  These items will be hot sellers, and if you want to ensure you have everything for your faction, or the awesome new battle boxes on release day, get your pre-order in ASAP.

Warmachine Prime – $79.99
Hordes Primal – $79.99
Battle Boxes – $54.99
New Faction Decks – $26.99

These prices are somewhat subject to change as we get more accurate information on costs from our distributors.  Order now at these prices and you’ll get your stuff even if prices go up.  If the price goes down before release, we’ll still credit you the difference.

Other tournaments will use a new Balanced Prizing format, where tournaments will be 4 rounds, and each player wins a pack for every match they win (this will give less prizes to the top players, but will spread the packs out more).
