WARMACHINE is a fast-paced 32 mm tabletop miniatures game set in the steam-powered science fiction/fantasy world of the Iron Kingdoms. Each player commands an army of detailed miniatures including a warcaster, an elite soldier-sorcerer who possesses incredible arcane power and the ability to mentally control a force of steam-powered mechanical automatons known as warjacks, and his supporting soldiers in a battle to vanquish the enemy warcaster. The fully compatible feral twin of WARMACHINE, HORDES, puts players in command of a battle mage known as a warlock who can control an army of powerful warbeasts and leads her own army of warriors into combat to destroy the enemy warlock.
