Privateer Insider

If you’ve somehow managed to escape our ebullient plugs for MiniCrate, then all you need to know is that MiniCrate is our newly launched subscription service that delivers an exclusive mini to your door once a month. There are two subscription plans to choose from: Collector, which is month-to-month, and VIP, which is a six-month plan that nets you a 7th bonus mini in your first shipment. The current minis are all variants of existing WARMACHINE & HORDES models, are exclusive to MiniCrate, and will only be produced once before we gloriously destroy the molds for your amusement.

This is how the cover of No Quarter Prime #2 begins: with a description…

Now that Company of Iron has been out for two weeks, lots of people have jumped into this new way to settle conflicts in the Iron Kingdoms. As a result, we’ve seen a lot of talk across all of social media. This Insider is an informal Frequently Asked Questions.

Here we go! Christmas comes early for the models currently in the game. This hot and fresh Dynamic Update for the 12 Factions of Christmas CID cycle is ready to rock!

Feast of the Fallen has begun! November’s narrative league is an exploration of the tyranny that has befallen many citizens of the Iron Kingdoms and their (not always successful) attempts to strike back. Sometimes, folks, the villains simply win!

What’s really cool about this month’s league is that it’s the first Organized Play event to feature Company of Iron support. You can play this entire league as just WARMACHINE & HORDES or as just Company of Iron, or you can utilize the linked scenario rules to play with everything.

To the Point: New Pins!

With WARMACHINE Weekend concluded, we have two new pins to add to your collection—and unless you were in St. Louis for the event where they premiered, you’ll want to get these now before the last of them are gone.


Since before the release of Company of Iron, folks in the office and the community have been expressing their creativity in the types of lists and thematic choices they’re making for their armies. It has been exciting to see all the different color schemes, themes, and narratives people have been attaching to their forces for the game, so we thought we’d up the ante...

Announcing the Forge Your Company of Iron Contest—your chance to add to the legacy of the Iron Kingdoms!

Character. The Iron Kingdoms is full of character. From the warcasters that lead the armies of Immoren to a lowly gobber in Five Fingers, the entire world is full of character. The Privateer Press bust line allows you to focus in on the character in each face of our world. I love seeing the work our community puts into their hobby. From WIP on painting armies to crazy conversions to amazing terrain builds, the PP community is full of creative individuals with a passion for painting. Today, I wanna take a look at some of the communities contribution to our creative creations.

Welcome to another installment of Company of Iron list building! I’m your host, Pill Wagani (this is my pen name; I think it’s fitting!). Today, we’ll be talking about Circle Orboros and two lists that focus on the Wolf Sworn subtheme. These lists have a large number of models for their points and generally bring a significant number of attacks against the enemy, excelling at destroying opposing forces while being speedy enough to apply scenario pressure.

Next up, we’re going to talk about some of my favorite Legion of Everblight Companies of Iron (see what I did there?). We’ve just released a new model, Craelix, who is a total boss in Company of Iron (while also being quite strong in standard games of WARMACHINE and HORDES). So our first list, Fang of Everblight, features this new bow- and sword-wielding succubus. Our second Legion list, Silent Death, is a 25-point list that includes a pair of lesser warbeasts!

Today is the long-awaited day: Company of Iron is on store shelves everywhere!

We’ve been thoroughly enjoying playing it in the office, as you can see from the videos we’ve been posting over the last few weeks, and now you can get in on the fun with your friends.

Welcome to your next helping of awesome! Company of Iron is just around the corner, and I had a really hard time picking which lists to do for these last Insiders. With the new Ryssovass models out, I just couldn’t resist the call of the Retribution! We have two more lists for you, and both play quite differently. Our first list follows the Dawnguard to battle with a full unit of Invictors. With guns (and gunblades!) in hand, these durable troops fight well both at range and in melee. The second list focuses on the Nyss who have joined the Retribution. With cloak and claymore, these few remaining Nyss fight for their survival and for vengeance upon the dragon Everblight!


Today, we are pleased to announce a new production label for Privateer Press hobby models: Black Anchor Heavy Industries. It’s a mouthful to say, but it’s the name we’ve given to Privateer’s new line of large-scale, direct-order-only models. And it’s a name you’re going to want to know if you have your sights set on catching one of those formidable Dracodiles.

Today we are pushing live all the changes from the Northkin CID cycle!

In this series of Insiders, we’ll take a Faction and then present two Company of Iron lists and an overview of how they operate. Twice each week, we’ll take a look at a different Faction and feature a 20-point and 25-point list. This edition: Cryx.

With all the exciting theme force releases, gatorman CID goodness, and the big reveal of No Quarter Prime, there’s a pair of models coming out this week that almost missed their time in the spotlight. Almost—until this Insider came along, that is!

Ah, Halloween! That delightful holiday where we dress ourselves and our children in costumes, go visit strangers, and demand they give us candy. I love this holiday, and I love to celebrate it.

Luckily, the celebration doesn’t have to be confined to just Halloween day. This month’s Organized Play event is The Longest Night 2017, which can be run anytime your local gaming store sees fit. This single-day casual event is all about candy, costumes, and carnage. Participants can also earn themselves a sweet Pumpkin patch (see what we did there) based on the Grymkin dread rot head as a prize. Check it out!

In today’s Insider, I’m covering the fairly quick process that was the creation of Colonel Marcus Siege Brisbane’s illustration that appears on the cover for No Quarter Prime #1. Like every other illustration or concept, we first start with a description.
