Privateer Press Launches New Trenchers Theme Force Box

October 11, 2017

Bellevue, WA - Privateer Press is releasing its first-ever theme force box for WARMACHINE and HORDES. Theme forces are armies designed around specific military roles and allow players to field a force with a unified aesthetic and rules that are designed to work well together on the tabletop.

The Cygnar Trenchers Theme Force Box is built around the new “Gravediggers” theme force and focuses on the primary infantry of the Cygnar Faction. It features ten new models, including all-new Trencher Long Gunners, Trencher Combat Engineers, and the first playable structure model in WARMACHINE, the Trencher Blockhouse. Additionally, this box features the new solos Commander Anson Hitch and the Patrol Dog. Combined with the currently available Cygnar Battlegroup Starter Box, the theme box allows players to field a complete 35-point Trencher army.

“Like never before, theme forces delve into the iconic military roles of the Factions in WARMACHINE and HORDES,” Chief Creative Officer Matt Wilson said. “With a selection of new models augmenting the existing models in each Faction, the theme forces feel like brand-new armies unto themselves, making what was old new again and ensuring the WARMACHINE and HORDES play environment is always fresh and exciting for our existing players as well as for new players joining our community.”

The limited-edition Cygnar Trenchers Theme Force Box is available for $109.99 MSRP and contains an eight-page primer booklet that introduces players to the background and rules for the Gravediggers theme force.

Theme forces are being further supported in the all-new No Quarter Prime magazine, which launched in September. Each issue of No Quarter Prime will include an extensive feature article covering in depth the history and combat methods of the theme force releasing around the same time. Each of these articles will also include the theme force’s rules, all-new scenarios, and game-modifying terrain rules inspired by the theme, plus a squad list allowing players to play the theme in Privateer’s upcoming Company of Iron skirmish game, also releasing in October.

The new Trencher models and theme force box are available now from Privateer Press and local game stores.

WARMACHINE and HORDES are dynamic, 32 mm tabletop miniatures games set in the steam-powered science-fiction/fantasy world of the Iron Kingdoms. WARMACHINE and HORDES use the same rules and can be played independently or against each other, differing in the range of Factions available in each game and the manner in which each side wages war. In WARMACHINE, the player commands an army of detailed miniatures, including a warcaster, an elite soldier-sorcerer who possesses arcane power and the ability to mentally control steam-powered mechanical automatons known as warjacks, and supporting soldiers. In HORDES, the player commands a battle mage, known as a warlock, who can control an army of powerful warbeasts and lead warriors into combat.
