Privateer Press to Sponsor Penny Arcade Plays: WARMACHINE

May 26, 2017
Bellevue, WA — Privateer Press has announced its sponsorship of Penny Arcade Plays: WARMACHINE, to debut on twitch.tv/pennyarcade beginning May 30, 2017 at 2:00pm PST.

The six part series will feature Penny Arcade personalities Jerry Holkins, Kiko Villasenor, Erick Blandin, and Jamie Dillon facing off in a weekly WARMACHINE tabletop miniatures game league that will be hosted by Privateer Press Executive Director of Business Will Shick. Featuring two back-to-back matches between the Penny Arcade players, episodes will stream live every Tuesday for five weeks from twitch.tv/pennyarcade at 2 p.m. PST. The final episode will stream live from Privateer’s Lock & Load GameFest 2017 event, where the overall winner of the league will be crowned “Overlord Of WARMACHINE In This Context.”

“We are longtime fans and supporters of Penny Arcade, their causes, and their events,” said Privateer Press Chief Creative Officer Matt Wilson. “Of course, we also know they have a simmering rivalry over the steam-powered miniatures game of WARMACHINE, and we are thrilled about the opportunity to collaborate with them, thereby exposing their visceral competitiveness to the world.”

Viewers tuning in to the first episode will also be treated to a never-before-seen WARMACHINE animated short that will debut before the series launches. The five-minute CG-animated film offers a unique glimpse into the world of WARMACHINE, featuring two of its best-known warcaster characters in an action-packed confrontation that will set the stage for the league to be played out in the series.

About WARMACHINE and HORDES

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, each player commands an army of detailed miniatures, including a warcaster, an elite soldier-sorcerer who possesses arcane power and the ability to mentally control a force of steam-powered mechanical automatons known as warjacks, and supporting soldiers. In HORDES, players take command of a battle mage known as a warlock who can control an army of powerful warbeasts and warriors into combat.
