Apparently there is a second alien race mentioned as well, but who knows if they'll ever be made in to their own army, just a few individuals being Wild Cards, or just a background force.

As far as I've seen, it hasn't hit retail just yet.

I really have enjoyed what I've played with my Marcher Worlds.


October release I believe.

The Keepers.

Their fluff points more towards them being a background force.

Although their production capacity is likely stressed, it'd be a bad idea to go to full launch without a few aliens. They're a staple of scifi settings.

The full launch will be without the Aliens, just the two three factions already created.

Aliens are in the second KS which, in theory, should also see new models for the other 3 factions and be a much bigger seller having the interest of a new 4th faction and larger ranges for the 3 current ones.

Remembering that the KS policy for this isn't steep discounts so there won't be vast savings over retail - instead its far more of a simple pre-ordering system so that PP isn't screwing over retailers by flooding their own market since ultimately they are short term KS and fast retail release once KS are over.

And by all means, if you can, pledge through your FLGS to help them get a cut.

The elves of Ios were just a background force for a long time, and the Crucible Guard were just a Mercenary supplier for some time. Now, I'm not saying that we'll see the Keepers next year, but if Warcaster hasn't died in 5 years, that may change.

KS 2 is coming next month (November). There's also a video in that link of the new alien race, though not a huge amount more detail than we already know but some neat still shots of concept art and such (again much we've seen already but its all in one place and getting slowlyready for the KS buildup)

I suppose that's really the secret to GW's success more than anything else.


Yep, they sure are failing a lot right now with their ever increasing profits even during a pandemic and higher sales year after year the last 4-5 years running. I don't know what it's like in your area, but in my local meta even a lot of long-term, die hard WHM players dropped the game like a hot rock and went back to Warhammer 40K when 8th edition dropped. Pandemic aside, my local game store(one of the biggest in the southeast US) doesn't even keep more than a bare minimum of PP stock on the shelves anymore. Rather, they do a weekly or bi-weekly PP order and more than once I've seen managers complaining about the difficulty of getting stock from Privateer.

That's my point. We're back to a similar position we were in 7th, wherein GW have cranked prices to the absurd, the balance is completely out of whack, they're doubling down on Space Marine explosions, etc, etc. By fail I don't mean financially, as even at their worst (7th) GW were still pulling in millions in profit, just that profit was shrinking more every year. Yet people will gripe, moan, bitch, whatever and see keep paying hand over foot for it. Most of the people who made WHM boom were disgruntled 40k'ers who were always going to go sprinting back to GW the second they started showing the slightest sign of improving. I'd say WHM is no in worse or better a position it was prior to 7th edition, it just had a very brief, but memorable, time in the sun.


Pretty much it. PP is in the same place Infinity/Malifaux/Mantic and many other non-publically owned businesses were in. And I agree much of the bump game from disgruntled 40k players. I think profit over time all of these companies will be okay.
