Yup, and in 40K now Old Stoneface himself has a model with rules to summon Cherubael.

When people say these will be limited, what does that mean exactly? I don't really follow WarmaHordes, but some of these look interesting for use elsewhere.


Basically that the entire army will be released, and then they won’t get anything else (or very little) added, unlike the ‘main’/‘real’ etc factions that get added to continually.

The main factions in Warmahordes get new units pretty regularly, but some of the small factions are limited releases meaning Privateer Press won't be adding new models to that faction after release.

So theoretically 5 years from now Khador (a main faction) will still get new warjacks, infantry etc, but limited factions like Cyriss, these Crucible Guard and Grymkin will only have the designs Privateer made when they were released.

Limited factions are essentially PP's way to expand the game with a brand new army, but in short bursts. They'll get some new stuff at irregular intervals, but won't get regular releases like the prime armies.

This way the limited factions can use new mechanics and features as well as remain balanced, without bloating the game nor having PP slave itself to way too many factions in long term support.

The other aspect is that limited release factions get a large block of their releases in a very short span of time. So its a one-big-release that lets the army get off the ground fast.

The Convergence of Cyriss is an example of their previous limited release faction.


Remembering that the nature of Warmachine means that PP can give a faction a very new twist by just releasing a new warcaster model to lead a force; bringing its own quirks and features which can often change up how the faction plays out under their command.

Really? There are very distinct aesthetic cues between the different factions. They only look alike if you only look at the basic silhouette and ignore all the details that make them look distinct.

The Jacks shown here are the first time I've ever looked at a warjack and had any doubt as to which faction it belonged to, and I'm only a very, very casual follower of the game...

Speaking of bases, how long have they had the filled-in tops? Is that new, or am I just woefully behind?

I feel like if you accepted the fact that the world has dudes willing to wear steam powered
armor even though the fluff admits that some men boil alive inside those suits, you're pretty
much right there with these sculpts.

Well, if they aren’t actually usable with Khador, I can pass on them. Nice models though! They fit the overall warmahordes aesthetic far better than whatever the hell grymkin were.

I like that they’re doing these mini armies, it’s a fun way to expand without everything having to just be mercs.

Those new man-o-Wars look excellent, did they say when they’ll be coming out? There’s quite a few of them.

Still hoping they’ll do a faction of (or just add) more minion mini warlocks and their special beasts, I thought they were great! And think of all the crazy beasts you could come up with.

It’ll probably get resculpted with the 2 new lights - they’re the same chassis.

Will Sorscha be plastic, resin or metal? For that matter, will the Rocketmen or Man-O'-Wars be plastic?

According to the soliciation, all of this new stuff including Sorscha, the Officers, and Tankers are a mix of Resin and Metal parts. There's no new MoW kits, so the units are still in plastic. As for the Crucible Guard? PP has done some small base resins recently, but its hard to say. The 10 mans out of Grymkin were plastic as were the piggybacks, but the cav were metal and the 6 man small based unit was resin. I'd not be surprised to see the rocketmen in plastic, but resin might be possible.
