Privateer Insider

Sometime after Gen Con last year, I was talking with WARMACHINE and HORDES creator Matt Wilson about what we wanted to do to make the new limited editions of Prime and Primal special. We wanted to embellish it with cool stuff to make it stand out for collectors. We talked about how we could make the art treatment different, do some gilded pages, and maybe even bind in a ribbon bookmark—all things we implemented in the LE versions of the books. I didn’t feel like this was quite enough, so I just casually said, “Too bad we didn’t think to do some cool bookends.”

This massive novel (over 500 pages!) wraps up the primary WARMACHINE narrative told in the various anthology books released over the last ten years.

Following quickly on the heels of Douglas Seacat’s pivotal book The Blood of Kings, Flashpoint promises to take readers on a journey into war with a famed lord general of the Cygnaran Army...alongside a man he loathes with a passion, someone he’d rather see as a corpse than an ally.
