Insider 4-5-2017

One of the most invigorating things we’re doing at Privateer Press on a day-to-day basis is the Community Integrated Development program. Starting in April, we have a fair amount of new CID-related things on the horizon, ranging from the current feedback cycle ending, new feedback cycles starting, and “Ask Me Anything”-style conversations.

Testing for our current CID cycle, Grymkin, will end on April 10. We’ve had an amazing time working on this project and getting your feedback to help tune all the details and make this Faction as fun to play as it can be. We’re grateful for your help and hope that you’ve had a blast both playing with and against Grymkin in their pre-release state. If this inaugural CID cycle has shown us anything, it’s that together we are going to do brilliant things.

Following Grymkin, we have Steamroller 2017 starting on April 19 and Battle Engines starting on April 26 for two overlapping CID cycles. It will be your first chance to test out for yourselves some of the exciting tidbits you may have heard coming out of SmogCon and AdeptiCon. The week after Steamroller testing begins, we will launch the battle engine CID cycle. Will Shick gave you some hints about this next cycle here, but we have more in store for you! This cycle will allow everyone to play with their favorite Factions, because there are battle engines everywhere. And this time you don’t even have to proxy, because those models are already on the table.

In addition to testing battle engines, the Battle Engine CID cycle will feature a few other models that we want to put under the lens. The largest group will be Cryx’s Bane models. While we will be taking feedback about Bane models during the entire cycle, we want to have a special hyper-focused discussion for them on April 27. This will take the form of a thread in the Dev Talk section of the CID forum. It will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. PDT, and our developers will be active in the thread responding to community thoughts about these models and their theme force.

Here’s to working with you to make WARMACHINE and HORDES the best miniatures game on the table top!
