It’s time for another Let’s Play! Today I’m joined by Owen from Gaming with the Cooler to check out the new 2-4 Player Arena Combat game from Privateer Press. Just a note; we mess up Cool-Down being simultaneous in this video and that you can’t put more dice into actions that aren’t attacks, but that’s why it’s a Let’s Play! Will be fixed for our next game. Check out the GMG Review HERE: https://youtu.be/lhO8xtAuPsc Check out the Website HERE: https://home.privateerpress.com/riotquest/
Travis Marg went ahead and shared these models over in Mercs and Cygnar facebook groups. They are the non-CID/fully internal playtest rules for the Warmachine versions of Riot Quest Models. None of these seem to be game breaking, but they do come equipped with enough rules to sink a card deck.Probably most interested in how the Storm Knight plays, but honestly I just want to wait until they release the Pyg Tank before I get too interested in what they're putting out there.
Ove nedelje predstavljamo nekoliko igara za umetničke duše i sve one koji se tako osećaju, ali i neizbežnog svemira, kao i jednu fantazijsku igru. Dakle, sve kao što ste već navikli u Pitchwise nedeljnim vestima. Za svemirce je najavljena nova ekspanzija za kooperativni (i veoma teški) The Captain […]

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.
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
It's a bit sketchy because it was posted on the Internet's holiday April 1st, a time when everything must be scrutinized more closely than a surgery to determine its veracity, but Privateer Press "spoiled" a look at Chuck Dogwood for Riot Quest.The only thing that makes it somewhat believable is that Riot Quest is, well, a riot in and of itself, so having a hobo druid featuring a hand puppet for a warbeast seems just about right for some of the "feel" of Riot Quest.My favorite part about the whole thing is how the hand puppet calls back humor to both Elan from the Order of the Stick and his puppet god, Banjo, as well as all the way back to the animated show The Tick when the Tick made his own sidestick out of a 2x4 and called it Happy Wooden Boy.Buuuuuuut looking at Chuck Dogwood...still not sure. :)
The latest Primecast posted Friday, and I near blew out my cell phone battery listening to it in the car and discussing it in chat with friends afterwards.There was some monpoc discussion. I didn't really track that because I got distracted by the Warmachine stuff:Minicrates.Sexy Sylyss. The official minicrate name is Sexy Sylyss, though I think that they could have easily gone with the name Sylyss Wyshicouldnaylyrr.Then there's the Arkadius minicrate. I couldn't figure out the pun at first, but then I listened to the primecast and heard them refer to her as Bride of Arkadius, and that's when you see the straight back hair that practically begs you to paint a white zigzag line through it.Fun fact: She's holding a pig in her left hand, referencing the pig the crew picked up at Adepticon and adopted into some weird poly gamer family. You'll hear them refer to the pig as Hamilton. I wasn't that excited about Riot Quest as a game before other than more versions of Iron Kingdoms stuff. However, hearing them d
Previews drop like bombs and communities explode. This time Matt Wilson himself of Privateer Press shared an art concept advancing the story for one of the biggest characters in the Iron Kingdom, Orsus Zoktavir, aka The Butcher, and now everyone is speculating what he will do or what his final miniature will look like. If you don't follow Warmachine or Khador, the Butcher is one of the most brutal characters in the story of Warmachine. His original version is rather simple. Make himself and his army hit harder, even with their guns!, than anything has a right to do so. When his story advanced, he appeared to lose his mind even further and would kill friend and foe alike as he whirlwinded up the battlefield with his axe Lola in hand. In his third iteration, the Butcher made friends with a pair of dogs he brought onto the battlefield which seemed to turn him into a sharper, craftier individual...who would murder anyone who got in his way.Privateer Press even went so far as to make an alternate sculpt for t
Yesterday, Matt Wilson of Privateer Press posted an article to Privateer Insider, the self promotional blog on Privateer Press's home page, giving us a preview of what's to come in 2019. And boy it was filled with goodies. Without going on for too long, let's talk about the biggest reveal in the post:That is a comparison shot of a 30mm based model on the left and the first real preview we have of what looks to be a leader model for the Infernals called "Combat Master." If this scale holds up, the Combat Master should sit on a 50mm base. In the render below you can see that it's an Infernal Master, so masters sound like the equivalent of Warcasters or Warlocks in Warmachine and Hordes.In addition, they previewed a warbeast, which looks like a modular-organic Convergence of Cyriss model, and a floating infantry model labeled "Infernal light infantry."I'm excited for this release now as the Masters look like they'll be display worthy pieces, and the weaponry on the Combat Master, at least, looks absolutely bruta
