Privateer Insider

Due to our desire to keep warjacks and warbeasts at the cutting edge of military might in the Iron Kingdoms, we sometimes take a more conservative approach to the balance of other model types that could overshadow them. Along the way we have learned a lot of lessons and made changes accordingly, from suping up battle engines to increasing the threat posed by Weapon Crews. With a few notable exceptions, Weapon Crews have seemed largely underwhelming throughout Mk II. Well, I can say with a great degree of confidence that will not be the case with the new edition of the game.



To celebrate the coming new editions of WARMACHINE and HORDES, we’re giving you the chance to catch big game by entering a contest with prizes worthy of the hunt!

We spoke to Doug about this massive undertaking in a two-part interview, the first of which you can read below.
