The Privateer Press weekly (ish) newsletter…

WARMACHINE

No Quarter

SIX

 
Build a Solid Foundation With These 50-Point Army Boxes!
 

March is in full swing, and along with lions, lambs, and Ides, this month also sees our 2017 Army Boxes marching on with the release of new Army Boxes for both Cygnar and Retribution of Scyrah.
Each of these Army Boxes contains a ready-to-play 50-point army, designed by the Privateer Press Development team to provide a solid foundation for new players or for veterans interested in diving into a new Faction. While the last couple of Army Box pairs have each contained a similar theme in composition, this month we present two very different takes on the art of WARMACHINE.
 
Paint Gems like the Pros!
 

Privateer Press welcomes back guest blogger Lauren Fahey (twitter: @griffonsroost). Check out her previous entry here. She currently works as a freelance artist specializing in painting miniatures for hobby gaming and display. Drawing from a background in art history and medieval/renaissance studies, she takes inspiration for her work from history, nature, and her favorite parts of nerd culture.
Today, she tackles the Megalith and shows off some techniques for achieving a great look for stone, gems, and rope!
 
Choose Your Path in Season 3 of the Crossroads of Courage League!
 

Crossroads of Courage: Season 3 began 3/1/2017! This year’s narrative league has been a rollercoaster thus far, with your reports directly influencing the fate of the league’s central protagonist (antagonist?), Holden. If you haven’t heard, the Crossroads league is culminating in a huge narrative event at Lock & Load® GameFest 2017, in which Holden’s final fate (and rules) will be decided. Why does that matter? Because Holden is going to get released as a full model for WARMACHINE & HORDES sometime after Lock & Load 2017!
 
Snatch up Wrath of the Dragonfather with Print on Demand Now!
 

Ever since the release of Zachary C. Parker’s action-packed novella Wrath of the Dragonfather in 2016, readers have clamored for a print edition of this climactic battle between dragons to add to their Skull Island eXpeditions’ library. But up to now, the printing costs of a book under 200 pages have presented a challenge….
…but not anymore! Amazon.com now has a special print-on-demand service that allows us to offer shorter novels to you at a solid price, and we are starting with Wrath of the Dragonfather because we know it’s one you’re waiting for.
 
Buy Your Ticket to Lock & Load While They Last!
 

March 15th we revealed the schedule of events for Lock & Load, but that’s not what we know you’re waiting for. While we have added new events to the lineup, March 29th is the day you are hungering for. We wanted to make sure everyone had time to plan for what events they wanted to attend, but the 29th is the day for registration. Make sure to set time aside so you don’t miss out on your anticipated events. Once events go live for registration, all you have to do is wait for July. There, at Lock & Load, you’ll get to reap what has been sown.

Hasslefree Miniatures Newsletter

Posted on March 21st, 2017 under , . Posted by

Some Salute related news from Hasslefree Miniatures…

TABLE OF CONTENTS

All Steam Ahead for Salute!
Hey everyone :) So, as with every year around this time, everything here is like 50% regular work, 50% Salute prep, and that percentage will swing slowly worse as we get closer to the date!

On the positive side, this is the time of year we we buy in more products to try out and get new moulds done etc. So for all of you who aren’t making it to the show then there’s still a lot of good happening that you get to benefit from :)

You can keep up with events on a more regular basis via our FB page as usual, but there’ll be weekly newsletters for the next month, just to keep track of happenings and releases.


Salute Pre-Order Code
As always there’s a nice freebie on offer for those of you who order your Salute goodies in advance. You can pick from an extensive list of items (35 different codes from across our entire range!)

The code this year is the highly original ‘SALUTE2017‘, and please remember you enter it on the ‘confirmation’ page, which is the last one before payment details. There’s a box at the top of the page.
(Every code we get people writing it in the comments box, other than making me smile, that does absolutely nothing! :) )

Also if your order is over £60 then the chosen freebie will be dropped into a lil HF goodie bag, if you order over £120 it’ll be a double sized bag and so on!

The code wil be active until Tuesday the 18th of April!
We aren’t packing any pre-orders after that date, you’ll just have to bring your lil scrappy piece of paper with you and we can both struggle to read your writing 😉

FOR ANYONE NOT GOING TO SALUTE!

This is ‘not‘ a free delivery code, this is a ‘collection‘ code. If you use it to try and get free delivery it won’t work as we do ‘not’ see your address. Collection codes blank that for us so we couldn’t even accidentally send it to you :)

Any orders coming through this way will sit in a box until we get back from Salute and then we’ll email you to invoice for postage, it’s really not a good idea 😀


Why Pre-Order?
Well, it’s a good idea in general, you get a freebie and your particular goodies won’t sell out, but there are two specific groups of items that you really should consider pre-ordering if going to Salute.
1. Resin Masters. We do ‘not‘ take Resin Masters to the show* unless they are in a pre-order bag.
Don’t turn up looking for a Foster or an Immortan Drumpf, they won’t be there!

2. Red Box (or other non-HF items). Our retail stock is far more limited than our HF stock. If you don’t pre-order and you aren’t one of the first to reach us then you could easily find yourself out of luck for that special Njorn Ravager or Aenglish Thug!

(A Red Box restock is on the way, and is expected this week, next week’s newsletter will have details for those of you who want to wait for that :) )

*See the one exception in the ‘And Finally…’ section at the bottom of this newsletter.


Where are We?
If you’ve been to Salute at the Excel before, then you know where we are :)
Once again we are in ‘Hasslefree Corner‘, with the new queueing and entrance system in the next hall (represented by the two arrows on the right) then we are at the back left corner after entering the hall.

Our stand number is TM02 and we are also running two participation games (1 Sci-Fi, and 1 Fantasy), in concert with the Random Platpus community, ably manned by Matt ‘McFonz’ Canning and Alan ‘Wait, What’ Jefferies, on GM01.
(More details on these in next week’s newsletter)

If you click on the map, it’ll pop-up larger, in case you can’t see the red circle at the bottom left 😉

As with previous years, you may want to make a beeline for us early as…


Salute Pre-Release Metals
I’m afraid we are at the mercy of our, most excellent, casters as to how many of our April, May and June releases show up in time to be pre-release metals for Salute.

What I can tell you is..

a) You can’t buy them through the site or pre-order them, you have to come see us and pick them up in person,

b) They will be limited in stock, so first come, first served and…

c) We will be ‘trying’ to have the following available…

Apprentice Raisa
Archmage Raisa
Cara
Seren a Delyth
Daev
Grond
Alex H
Danica
Ryan
Pulse
Pilot Hannah
Larran Jax

.. and maybe even more! Whatever we can get moulded we will have with us at the show and some of them will not be available through the site until June.


Resin Master – Foster Redux
Foster is the stereotypical ‘trucker with a heart of gold’. A tough guy on the outside and marshmallow on the inside, seen here with his trademarked snarl, a Tec 9  and the most feared weapon in the truckers arsenal, the mullet.

(Foster has been slightly changed, with the addition of a knife)


Resin Master – Lord Karghoul
Lord Karghoul, favoured of the Dark Gods and longtime rival of Ulthrak. Encased in thick darksteel armour and ensorcelled helm, Karghoul has long since been nothing but an extension of the Dark God’s will.
Standing at 35mm tall with a wide stance, Karghoul is a chunky miniature indeed.


Resin Master – Ariniel
Ariniel is an Elf of the Western Sea. His people ae descended from inland Wood Elves but have long since favoured the coast and are able sailors.
Ariniel is the first sculpt for us by our new sculptor Ari Nielsson. He’s just part time at the moment but we hope to bring you more by his talnted hand over the next year :)


Resin Master – Dwarf Male Dolly
Standing Dwarf Male, approximately 25mm in height with awide stance and outstretched hand.
This is one of our premium dollies, technically a Resin Master and taken directly from a master mould of Kev’s green. They are primarily for sculpting practise but have also been used by customers to simply add their own hair/weapons/equipment and create their perfect miniature.
No licensing is implied or given with this dolly.


Resin Masters – Striding Male Dolly
Striding Tall Male, approximately 34mm in height with an extreme muscular build.
This is one of our premium dollies, technically a Resin Master and taken directly from a master mould of Kev’s green. They are primarily for sculpting practise/inspiration but have also been used by customers to simply add their own hair/weapons/equipment and create their perfect miniature.
No licensing is implied or given with this dolly.


Metal Re-Release – Mystic Family
A multi-pack of all the ‘Whites in Spaaaaace‘ Mystic Family members, at a discount, plus a bonus selection of  fluorescent acrylic rods thrown in for FREE!
Re-Released with the fresh remouldnig of Mystic LIbby and Mystic Panda 😀


Metal – Jakevim the Swine
Jakevim is the Patriarch of the infamous Southern Barbarian family. Husband to Yllsa and father to the growing brood that is the next generation. Seen here dressed for the summer at the family home on the broders of Tana, and carrying his runic bastard sword.
There are three things you don’t ask Jakevim about; his nickname, his height and his hair.  Any one of them might get you a close up look at those runes.


Metal – Yllsa the Believable
The long-suffering partner of Jakevim the Swine, Yllsa is known for two things; the first, being able to smack the bejeezus out of you and the second being particularly forthright. Attired here for the summer at their home on the border of Tana, and carrying her very large rune-axe.
The couple’s nicknames are pretty representative of their personalities, best not to ask Jakevim about it though, he gets quite … opinionated.


Metal – Ynjen
The oldest of Jakevim’s brood of dangerous children, Ynjen is a born hunter. A crack shot with a bow and an excellent tracker she has saved the family innumerable amounts of gold with her ability to find a good meal.
Armed with her trusty shortbow and wearing the remains of one ofher best kills.


Metal – Arkein
The second oldest of the brood and a typical teenage boy in many respects, Arkein still take after his father in many others (not just the hair). Named after a seer sensed magicks within the boy at birth. He has yet to show such abilities, in public at least.
Armed with a runesword crafted by his father and dressed for the Tana summer.


Metal – Angme
Angme is the youngest daughter of the southern barbarian family headed by Yllsa & Jakevim. Seen here with twin daggers which she took up after reading tales of the Pirate Queen, Xanthia.


Metal – Kule
Kule is the baby of the family, but this is a very special family so that should in no way lull you into a false senseof security. Not only is he Jakevim’s son to the core but any passing Wizard casting an eye over his aura would see him practically light up with enchanted items.


Metal – Jakevim’s Brood
Jakevim and Yllsa’s adventuring family in one happy, discounted, multi-pack!


Resin Master – Chip & Batle Chip
Chip, and his more armoured version, Battle Chip have both been released a while but we had them painted up with the family.
These are still Resin Masters, we are workingon a way to get them into metal but that won’t be until well after Salute so we thought we’d show the paintjobs off with the metal release of the Brood :)


Metal – Chipster
Chipster is one of the survivors of the same dark line experimentation that resulted in both Smudgester and H4.  Seen here well after his escape, fully armoured in a custom made powersuit and armed with a Heavy Shard gun somehow acquired from the Galactic Navy, equipped with the thermal injection unit.


Metal – Chipster Spaceclad
Chipster is one of the survivors of the same dark line experimentation that resulted in both Smudgester and H4.  Seen here armed with genetically enhanced strength and razor sharp claws and armoured in 5 incheses of pure muscle.


Red Box – Restock & New Releases!
Ok, technically the restock is not in yet, and we’ll remind you of it in next Sunday’s newsletter ‘but’ it’ll arrive this week andbe added to the system as soon as that happens so we thought we’d tell you about it in advance :)
With the restock will also come a number of new Red Box releases, and we’ll be adding them this week too!


And Finally…
More metal restocks have arrived, mostly of our older minis but a lot of those are still popular (As I can tell by the constant badgering of when they are coming back! 😉 ). So if you were waiting for something then best to have another check, it might be back in.

A number of the currently outof stock minis are on their way to us, Ulfred and Wolf for example. We’ve also fixed a number of old moulds which will also be on their way to us, news of both the restocks and the moulds next week.

In the run up to Salute, Resin Masters will be the most last-minute releases. If you want to keep up to date with any of those last minute creations, then keep an eye on Kev’s artist page on FB. Anything he gets finished before the show stands a chance of showing up, and in fact these last minute minis will be the ‘only’ Resin Masters we bring!

Our apologies for the recent months ‘haphazard’ nature of things, I managed to have approximately 5 oral surgeries through the winter, which was … unpleasant. It put a dent in things we are only just recovered from.

Stop complaining about Iron Fist, it was fine! 😉

I hope that’s it, that was a long ass day!

’til next time,

Arty.

Call of Cthulhu Metal Dice Kickstarter is Live!

Roll for SAN with these amazing Call of Cthulhu Metal Dice from Q Workshop and Chaosium. 
This is a set of full metal dice, made of tin, painted in black, and officially approved by Chaosium.

The numbers and ornaments are engraved in dice, thus ensuring their top quality. They are practically indestructible – and they come with the lifelong guarantee in case something bad happens.


The Kickstarter runs until Saturday April 15, with a whole swathe of Stretch Goals to come…

“The dice look like they have been mined from Yuggoth by the mi-go or grown in some Elder Thing vat in a lost city in Antarctica. They are stunning attractive and very readable—they’re going to be great on your gaming table.”
– Mike Mason, Call of Cthulhu line editor

What is Ab Chaos?
(…from Ab Chaos #7, May 31 1992)

Ab – Latin “from”
Chaos – (1) Any condition or place of total disorder (modern vernacular); (2) the disordered state of unformed matter which preceded creation (since Milton, Paradise Lost); (3) the dark, empty space which preceded creation (Greek Mythology); (4) the [formerly] Californian roleplaying game company.

Ab Chaos is an informal newsletter for Chaosium fans. Through our history we have tried to serve the players and gamemasters through craft and art as well as (and sometimes at the expense of) marketing and moneymaking. We appreciate your loyalty, and offer this communication to those who are curious about us, beyond the mere “product”.

It is planned to be informal and irregular. We are, after all, not the Orderium.

Collecting your pre-orders and buying new tickets

A faster system to get your tickets

Over the last 2 years UKGE has grown at an amazing rate and more than doubled in attendance. This is great news for building an exciting and thriving event but of course we have to get you all into the show as fast as possible.
This year we have developed a new system to allow for speedy collecting of both PRE ORDERED and ON THE DAY Entrance and Event Tickets.
We will have 5 ticket points outside Hall 1, 5 more outside Hall 3a and also a facility at the Event desk in the Hilton Hotel for collecting and buying tickets.

How to collect your tickets

Please be aware if you book in advance, we do NOT post out your tickets. Instead tickets can be collected at the venue from noon on Thursday 1 June onwards.

(The QR codes will be added nearer the show so if you access your customer page now you will see your order but the QR code will not be there). Present the pdf at any ticket point when event tickets will be printed from our high speed printers and your entrance tickets will be handed over.
If you do not have the pdf with you, you can give your name and present some form of ID – we accept a bank card, passport or driving licence.
To buy tickets on the day just go to any ticket point.
Ticket points will accept cash, cheques and card.
You can collect your tickets from the ticket desk on the hours shown below:

Something new (ish) from the Black Library…

Q: How did the idea of a “total war” novel covering everything from mighty Titans down to individuals on the ground come about?

“It’s something I’d done to a certain extent before in books like Necropolis. I like the idea of locking a novel on to one location, and exploring all the levels of conflict in that place. This, I suppose, took it a stage further. I wanted to write about Titans, but I felt the sheer scale of them would become lost if they weren’t contrasted with people and events at the human end of the spectrum. So the book became about the whole event, from the biggest to the smallest moments.”

Q: The battle in Titanicus takes place in the Sabbat Worlds setting – are there any sneaky little references to the rest of your Sabbat Worlds work in there that you’re particularly proud of?

“There are plenty, as there are in Double Eagle, my other non-Ghosts Sabbat World book. But they’re also quite subtle: I didn’t want to reduce the epic scale of Warhammer 40,000 by throwing in lots of ‘fan service’ moments that were too coincidental to believe. This novel clearly happens against the backdrop of the same campaign, and meshes with it, but the Imperium is SO big – and the Sabbat Worlds alone are SO big – that connections that were too obvious would have diminished that feel.”

Q: In what ways was writing such large scale combat a different challenge to your more usual small and intimate battle scenes?

“They come with their own individual challenges. How do you make the vastness of the Titans vast enough, and at the same time clear enough, and comprehensible? How do you convey the scale and mayhem of these machines? Similarly, how do you make the human level action as compelling as the big stuff? It’s all about tension and drama, and playing off the two extremes as carefully and cleverly as you can.”

Q: Looking back at it years later, what are you most proud of in the novel? What’s your favourite part of it?

“I am very proud of it. I think it stands up well and is a satisfying self-contained epic story. I’m very proud of the sheer scale of the Titan combat, and the sense of the Titans almost as characters, but I’m also pleased with the way I visualised the language and operation of the Titan Legion. Oddly, it’s the really small stuff, the human-level actions and details that I feel most proud of. They engage strong emotions and they don’t get drowned by the action. In the end, however big the Imperium is, it’s all about people.”

Bull in a China Shop – fantastic value at only £50

Royal Australians engage a Chinese Federation force in the South China Sea.
Tensions over the rights to certain gas rigs have boiled over, with the Kingdom of Britannia, based in Singapore and Sumatra, and China posturing over on the status of contested gas fields. The Chinese Federation, striking from its base on Hainan isattempting to dislodge the Kingdom of Britannia foothold in the region. Royal Australian forces however, tipped off after a Chinese official got into a drinking contest in a bar in Hong Kong with two men claiming to be Free Australians working for the Empire of the Blazing Sun (actually Royal Australian officers on shore leave), are on the way to intercept!
Models included are shown above – click on the image to see more information

Warpath from Mantic Games is back…

And finally here we are – more than five years since its first appearance, the Warpath universe is back – and oh my, has it had some work!
Since its first stuttering appearance we have been slowly but surely populating the Warpath Universe. Right after I lauched the first Warpath I vowed to myself we would not do it again until we could do it properly. This meant we needed numerous armies (with a host of units for each) and vehicles (because what is a sci-fi battle game without vehicles – nothing, that’s what).

So instead we started building slowly. From Project Pandora, through to DreadBall we kept adding more and more layers. New races, new characters and new storylines, even the sports they play – both the live-vid-streamed high production Arena version and the hardcore, violent underground game – have come into being.

Find out more about the exciting story behind Warpath in our new trailer!
But the universe really started to come alive when Deadzones started appearing all across the galaxy. We had the buildings to create the outposts and cities they battled over, and small gangs of elite troops battling across Plague-infected planets. Then later this year we will be breaking into a tiny laboratory on a remote planet to find out what evil has been perpetrated in its darkest corners.
But finally, after many hundreds of hours of playtesting, and hundreds of thousands of dollars of tooling (made possible by the fantastic and generous Kickstarter backers) Warpath is here – and it has it all!
