Privateer Press just announced ONE of their convention exclusives for Lock and Load 2019, alternate sculpt Doom Reavers! Looks like they made female convicts and gave them fell blades. One even runs around without her helmet.I'm tempted to go just to come home with a bunch of these squirreled away in my suitcase.

He has a name, but I can't get past the name of his ranged attack.Harlan Hold Em HighThe Last Storm Knight. If his armor looks goofy, it's somewhat intentional. When the apocalypse comes, he knights himself by finding discarded armor.Cover art and the five Riot Quest miniatures you get in the box set.

Privateer Press has been leaking images of their Archons so far. At least the concept art. They've been doing this on their instagram account by releasing the images in 6 images that go together into a single image.If you've seen the instagram preview page you know that there are six preview shots that just so happen to line up perfectly if you send out the images just so. Anyway, that's the reason for the one gutters between some of the images below. Each image (maybe except the Morrowan one) was leaked with some kind of ominous text. I don't have any of that here.Except this one. I think the Morrowan Archon was leaked as an entire picture somewhere else. If you play Warmachine, you're familiar with the Morrowan iconography on the weapon and shield and belt. Pretty standard angelic fare. "I AM GROOT."The Primal Archon was leaked and the figure pretty much fits the description given. ("Walking mountain.")The Thamarite Archon is pure archer and also the most "angelic" looking archon with little to no
We’re back with another GMG Review! This time it’s the latest updated Battletome for AoS2E – The Fyreslayers. While not a huge book, it has plenty of Artifacts, Prayers and new ‘Not-Endless-Spells’ along with a unique Terrain Feature to make this army feel ‘2nd Edition Ready’.
So the second part of the Devchat discussed Riot Quest, Privateer Press's skirmish game coming out later this year. The first thing they announced was that Riot Quest was sent off to be printed, which means that they expect to have it available to demonstrate at Lock & Load in June and for sale at Gencon in August.Some of the key things about Riot Quest was that they emphasized a pretty light construction rules. Pick up to x to y models (I forget what numbers x and y are....4-10?), play games, draw objective cards, score points, get treasure. 20-35 minutes gameplay.That seems crazy to me. I can't spend 20-35 minutes doing anything in this hobby.One of their warnings about this game is that this isn't Warmachine. It doesn't even use Warmachine mechanics to play, and is not meant to be a hyper competitive game like Warmachine (or even Monsterpocalypse). The game has lots of RNG (random number generator) elements to it. I think they discussed it, or they've discussed the RNG before, but I can't remember whic
Today's DevChat there was a lot of spoiling of information for Warmachine: Oblivion. According to Hungerford and Olsen, they have the Community Development (playtesting) set to start next week Wednesday, April 17, provided that Oz can come back from KingdomCon in one piece (that last part is conjecture on my part).The first part of the spoiler was the three themes that were going to go live with Oblivion.Theme 1: Hearts of DarknessHearts of Darkness has been adjusted from its original wide open play. the word they used was "controversial." They haven't said which casters would be in the theme, but they announced the factions: 1 each from Cygnar, Protectorate, Khador, Crucible Guard, Merc, Cryx? (Not sure about Cryx, I must have missed it, but I'm reading Cryx in other people's notes, so I'll add that here.As part of this, there's a lot of conjecture as to how they will select casters. Like, how thematic will they get with this release or are they looking to push specific playstyles from each faction?It's unli
Apparently General Hondo is supposed to be a ranged monster, and when he gets down to his hyper form he...shoots more? I'm hoping the army interacts well enough that that works. Getting taken down to hyper form often involves getting beat down, and maybe extra ranged attacks will help tip the scales, but I'm thinking it will only work when monsters are low on health. July SolicitationGeneral Hondo – Empire of the Apes Monster (resin)PIP 51060 MSRP: $28.99*Though he is not their king, General Hondo is the Empire of the Apes’ greatest military leader. Hondo is responsible for the widespread seizure and deployment of human military hardware by ape troops fighting Earth’s potential destroyers. He is also fond of military uniforms and medals. Hondo’s methods suggest a degree of tactical and strategic depth once thought exclusive to Homo sapiens. He enjoys bringing missile-launching platform with him and savors the resulting explosions, another trait shared with his human counterparts.TRADE POINTS: General Hon
Kudos to Privateer Press. These all look fantastic.Not sure what I'd be getting if I were getting any of it. The only reason I buy stuff early is if I want to paint it early, and with what's being released armies are going to look rather strange (especially since you'll be summoning extra horrors onto the battlefield).
