Changes Afoot for Hordes and Warmachine

January 23, 2017

Warmahordes players have some fun stuff to look forward to. In addition to the current narrative campaign currently building the character Holden, we have the now long-awaited reveal of a new Hordes faction on February 16th. Sneak-peaks of concept art include a toothy belled beast with a long tongue, a shambling corpse, and a pumpkin-headed animated scarecrow. Beyond that, we’ve been teased with the name “Hollowmen” and the tag-line, “The Iron Kingdoms will reap what they sow.”

There’s bigger news to report, however. Privateer Press is experimenting with army boxes. These are not the old battle-in-a-box that includes enough units for a small skirmish between two factions. This is a full-on 50 point single-faction army inside one box.

The first two to hit the market are for Cryx and Circle Orboros. The Cryx box will include:

  • Warcaster Asphyxious the Hellbringer
  • Inflictor Heavy Warjack
  • Seether Heavy Warjack
  • Ripjaw Light Warjack
  • Cankerworm Light Warjack
  • Darragh Wrathe Solo
  • Bane Warriors Unit of 10
  • Bane Warriors Officer & Standard Command Attachment
  • Inside the Circle Orboros box you’ll find:

  • Warlock Kromac, Champion of the Wurm
  • Feral Warpwolf Heavy Warbeast
  • Warpwolf Stalker Heavy Warbeast
  • Ghetorix Heavy Warbeast
  • Rotterhorn Griffon Light Warbeast x 2
  • Shifting Stones Unit x 2
  • Be aware that this is an experiment by Privateer Press to see if this is the sort of thing fans want. Because of this, they’re only producing these boxes in extremely limited numbers. Be sure to let the good folks at your local Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy® know you want one these boxes ASAP so they can secure one for you.
