Happy Birthday Mike Sale!

It’s Mike’s birthday today, and he’ll be here all day.  So he decided that the thing he wanted most for his birthday (apart from a new airbrush) is to give everyone the chance to get some great games at a great deal!  But, like most gamers, Mike is pretty opinionated and he’s only willing to doll out deals to people buying his FAVORITE games.

So – today we will be offering to anyone that wishes Mike a happy birthday 10% off any purchase of Mike’s favorite games!  What are Mike’s favorites?  Well you’ll have to ask him (or maybe convince him) as to what those are, but you can bet they’ll include stuff like Star Realms, and Dungeons & Dragons, and Blood Bowl, and pretty much anything Mantic (dude loves that company…)

So drop by today, wish Mike a happy birthday, and grab yourself some of his favorite games at a discount!

WMH Call to Arm Update

WMH C2A Banner

The Warmachine Call to Arms early bird period went well, and I’ve seen tons of cool posts from people in our Facebook group already of painted minis and cool ideals for conversions and lists.  The official start date for the Call to Arms is only this week!  There’s still tons of time to sign up, get involved, and paint some minis for the new edition this summer.

So now that we’re officially kicking this thing off, what are we doing this summer for Warmachine, how do you get involved, and what’s the new edition like?

Summer of Warmachine

We already had the first tournament of the new edition, which was a ton of fun and a lovely learning experience.  What else do we have planned?  The following is a list of fully-painted-required events.  Each of these gives free or discounted to Call to Arms participants, but is open to anyone to play in.

Jun 30 – Warcaster Mega Battle – Bring one caster and slug it out!
Jul 14 – Warjack Ninja Warrior – Play through an obstacle course with your favourite Warjack or Warbeast.
Jul 24 – Zero-Point Mega Battle – Bring a warcaster or warlock plus their battlegroup.
Jul 30 – 75 Point Tournament – Our second large tournament of the new edition, and our first painted required one.
Aug 7 – 35 Point Doubles Event – A small tournament where you bring a friend and battle two-v-two.
Aug 21 – Brush of War Painting Contest – Submit models from the Warmachine and Hordes range into a painting contest with three categories.
Aug 21 – Rumble – A new format designed by Privateer Press for faster games played on a 3×3 table.
Sep 4 – Victory Celebration – Show off what you finished painting, play some games, and pull names from the Victory Draw.

So as you can see, there’s a ton going on for Warmachine this summer.  We’re also having game nights every Thursday evening, and scheduling pick up games using the BKG Warmachine Facebook group (which you should join).

Getting Involved

Now is the time to join the Warmachine Call to Arms.  For only $30, you get free or discounted entry to all of the cool events we’re talking about, and you get to paint an army and share your accomplishment with the community.  If you spend $150 in a single purchase for your new army, you don’t even have to pay that $30 — you get in for free!

You can participate in the Call to Arms even if you live far away and can’t get into the store weekly.  There are several cool events, scheduled at different times in the week, and sharing painted models on our Facebook group is easy and interactive.

Each Call to Arms event you attend will earn you a ballot for the Victory Draw.  Over the next few months we’ll be spoiling some of the amazing prizes for the winners of this draw.  For now, let me just say there are lots of ways to get tickets for this draw, including participating, winning, painting, and playing games.  The giveaways from this draw are going to be VERY cool.

Warmachine and Hordes New Edition

The new edition of the game has significantly changes every faction.  Those old models you never painted before?  Maybe they’re great now.  That fun list you’d always wanted to play?  Here’s an opportunity to build that army you’ve always wanted.  The brand new edition is a great time to get involved in the game, to paint for the first time, to play more seriously, or even just to play more fun games.

We’ve got a store copy of the rulebook available for you to go through.  The core rules of the game are available for free online, and the physical printing of the new cards will be available from Wednesday, June 29th.  Jay already posted about the international shortages of product, so some decks might have to wait for reprintings.  A few battle boxes will be available in store, and we’ll be restocking as soon as possible.

Warmachine and Hordes – New Edition and Preordering!

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.
