What I didn't like about the beasts was how many of them you'd have to have.

I like lists with one or two heavies, but having 3+ skin n moans...

So Privateer announced today they've hired Bob Watts as CEO.

Over the years, he has served as CEO & Founder of Sabertooth Games (LotR CMG, 40K CCG), Vice President of Wizards of the Coast (M:TG CCG, Dungeons & Dragons RPG), President & Founder of Heartbreaker Hobbies (Warzone, James Bond CCG, DoomTrooper CCG), President of Games Workshop North America (Warhammer 40K), and most recently as the President of Cerberus Entertainment, overseeing the production and sales of Privateer Press products in the EU. Privateer expects that having Bob Watts involved in the daily operations of the company while still being involved in Privateer Press EU will help promote greater consistency and quality of service to customers in the UK & EU.


From what I've seen from various conversations they've never had one before.

I believe it's actually an Infernal(?), a new faction for Warmahordes (though I thought they were for warmachine, despite not using warjacks or warbeasts). So your feelings on Grymkin are still valid... jk.

Model name is 'infernalist,' so presumably a human who made a deal.

Not really sold on the bloody big flanges on his helmet, but a greatsword wielding spellcaster is an interesting WA. I wonder what kind of unit he's attached to. The dregs of humanity or a pack of low-grade infernal beasties?

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

*Fingers crossed new CEO leads to new good things*
Hope this goes well for PP - I think its clear that they did need a change of direction/some new ideas at the top. Really hope this is a big turning point for them and that they can bring back the power of PP that they had only a few years ago!

Also their KS for their artbook is into its last few days!

They got Big Bob Watts, eh? Good for them.

Go on Bob, get that sweet, sweet Warzone licence for PP. Fifth (or is it sixth?) time's the charm.

Not sure what's there to explain. Watts was involved with the first edition of Warzone as the founder of Heartbreaker, and I feel PP would make for a great home for the IP. They love their shoulder pads there, after all.

It's not going to happen, now that the well has been poisoned AGAIN, but a man can dream.

What part is poisoning what well? I'm just not following what you think could happen here.

Without going into pointless detail, Prodos is a company that came into existence with a reasonably successful Warzone Kickstater campaign, only to squander whatever hype and good will that brought with a series of rather, uh... unfortunate decisions.

I was never all that into the look/vibe of warzone, but I LOVED Chronopia!

Would love if PP was to tackle either game, but Target (Tangent?) games seemed much better with fantasy then sci-fi.

That said, I too hope this CEO can turn things around for them. Warmahordes is a good game, but I guess people feel it needs an overhaul? Monpoc was great, have yet to try the new one.
I just hope they focus on fixing whatever’s wrong (I personally think it’s fine...) with warmahordes before they start side tracking into other (board/card/video) games.

Seeing Chronopia get a more modernized updated facelift would be amazing. Dial up all the gears and clockwork of the firstborn, make the Devout even more spikey and evil, push the dwarf totems even farther... Stygians... oh man. I absolutely would love to see that game come back!

This is a good move for PP. The company has been in desperate need of new leadership after the last two disappointing years.

Well they already have some production for the metals in the UK, although with the brexit will that still help? No idea.
Honestly the real problem is that the regional distributor here has no credibility, it's probably much smaller than any of the big web retailers, but hey progress on the side of PP might help anyway

I have no idea. Personally, I think both games are the best they've ever been currently. The main problem with Warmahordes honestly seems to be that everyone is convinced there's something wrong with Warmahordes. They're stuck in a lot of ways too, with problems like too many Warcasters and a community that would crucify them if they dared to remove one. (Sorscha2 is awful but she'd be a fine proxy for Sorscha1, IMO) My gut says that for all the reasons bandied about, the real issue is simply price. It's a large scale game that comes at a large scale price, but for much of its high period, its price was being obscured by online discounts. Couple that with a hardcore tourney crowd unwilling to play below 75 and you've got a pretty massive sticker shock for new players or updating armies.

The price is pretty insane, here in the UK anyway. Makes me understand how GW buyers outside the UK feel. The cryx trollkin guys with the fiery chain weapons cost £78 here, after discount. I’ve been known to spend a lot on models, and I love the models and the world and the game (although I haven’t played a lot), but I feel pretty priced out at the moment.
