Also that gatling trollkin, I must have it for my trollkin army he fits the theme 100%!!!
He could make a pretty good slugger leader, but I hope he'll get rules that are stronger than what sluggers get.


That’s Boomhowler so he’ll almost certainly work for trolls as is.

Oh he is a faction model too thanks to my tier list.
Which doesn't change anything at all because I have no models with rules that affect faction models lol.

I wish they would have given the Infernals at least one more of every choice.

The HOD looks interesting but I wish the casters could have taken horrors.

Really enjoying the weekly live dev chats on youtube/twitch/FB Privateer Press does these days. As far as I'm aware there is no other companies out there who are openly discussing the actual gameplay and balance of their games and reasoning behind changes as thoroughly as these guys are. Pretty much all community interactivity from other companies right now seems to be nothing more than product advertisement in one for or another.

Doesn't Warhammer Community kind of do this? I don't read too much there though.

GW will talk about changes they have made, on a high level. The only mention of any sort of fan interaction is mostly in reference to what their polling of testers has shown. I'm not sure if GW takes questions as fans ask on their live streams (I haven't seen it, but could easily have not been paying attention), but definitely PP is taking questions (I think from their twitch, or Facebook streaming comments), and answers them live (assuming they can, with the hosts they have). GW does more of this sort of thing at conventions, but I think they like to not be quite so open, as you get locked into stuff by giving away too much info to your community. And especially with all the plates they're trying to spin at once, things can get messed up easily. Just look at the delayed Sylvaneth stuff.

ICv2 has a preview of Riot quest.

https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/43177/privateers-riot-quest-begins


he new Riot Quest game from Privateer Press will launch in August with the Riot Quest Starter Box and the J.A.I.M.s Riot Quest Guard miniature.

Hinted at late last year (see “Privateer Teases 2019 Releases”), Riot Quest is a miniatures-based board game set in the same “Iron Kingdoms” world as Privateer’s Warmachine. In this stand-alone game, players lead teams of scavengers trying to gather as much treasure as they can from the ruins of the Iron Kingdoms. It is designed for battles between very small teams that include only a handful of miniatures, featuring fast-paced and unpredictable skirmishes.



The Riot Quest Starter Box includes all of the game materials one player needs to play the game: 5 unpainted miniatures with stat cards, 15 dice, an arena map, 32 cards, and tokens. MSRP is $49.99.

Riot Quest is designed for head-to-head or multi-player games with up to four players, and each player needs their own copy of the Starter Box to play. The miniatures included in the set are designed to create a well-balanced team, or players can substitute other hobby miniatures for their team.



Privateer will also offer a line of miniatures specifically intended for use with Riot Quest, starting with J.A.I.M.s. This metal miniature depicts a clockwork warrior, officially called “Jacobsen’s Amazing Iron Maiden.” MSRP is $14.99.


Also a shot of the game board. Not seen this before personally but don't know if it's new to this article.

Fingers crossed, the next Uber Corp monster they do is Mecha Kondo! Would love some smaller robot apes to go with it too.

One of the locals would love if it was Kondo, because he’s torn between robots and gorillas, I think it’s supposed to be Gorgonzola, or at least I’d heard he was one of their first awhile back.

And yeah, the photoshop on the Riot Quest photo is particularly poorly done. Do note the game uses the MonPoc dice.

Which if this was still stuff from last year when it was in development and not marketing materials being used to solicit sales for a game due out in three months, I could see that.

Yeah, I seem to recall, it was cyber khan, and a mecha planet eater in the first series, maybe mecha Cthugaroth (sp?) not sure? Mecha Kondo was def series 2 (5). I thought they were bad guys too, like shadow sun in monsterpockalypse, but not sure in this new game?
I always loved Ubercorp as this huge conglomerate, trying to cash in on the monster destruction with no original ideas. They just make robot versions of everything, and advertise their wins like crazy. I always thought it would be funny if they sold ad space on their monsters/units. Perhaps I’ll paint a giant Pepsi ad on cyber khan, and a movie poster for some rom-com on one of the units.

Privateer is having another mystery box sale as they need to move their office/warehouse which explains why they've been doing this over the past few months from the sounds of it.

from reddit:

I've seen it crop it here and in a couple other threads, like Facebook, asking about the move.
If you weren't aware, our office/warehouse/factory building thing is located in Bellevue, only a couple minutes away from where Lock and Load is held.
Bellevue is where I've lived all my life, and it started as a little suburb that has grown into a very, very expensive place. It kind of has a reputation as where all the rich soccer moms live (they actually live in Issaquah).
The reason we are moving is because the city is building a big mass transit... thing, literally in our parking lot. They've been working on it for years. It'll be a big train thing that connects across the lake into Seattle.
Well, Bellevue doesn't really zone for industrial anymore. It is much more a commercial downtown hub kind of place these days, so we have to move up the freeway to find a new office that will allow us to ship/produce/have an office, etc.
So, yeah. We'll still be "in Seattle," just 15-30 minutes (depending on your commute) further north.


https://store.privateerpress.com/spring-cleaning-mystery-box


Privateer Press will be relocating our headquarters before the end of the year, which means moving EVERYTHING in our factory and warehouse.

So, we’re blowing out our overstocked items in the form of fat mystery boxes containing ridiculous values!

Until the end of May, order a Spring Cleaning Mystery Box and get $200+ worth of WARMACHINE or HORDES models, along with a host of other items that may include pins, plushies, and books (bringing the deal to at least a $300 value) for only $69.99 (Domestic U.S. shipping included!). Each mystery box will contain an assortment of WARMACHINE or HORDES models from a single random Faction. You can purchase up to 4 mystery boxes in a single transaction without any duplicate Factions.

I hope they are expanding to a far better bigger site and it sounds like their old one (or rather current for the time being) is really not suited to them any more either. So hopefully its a big positive move for them


And darn it I wish they could faction lock the mystery boxes at least - then again I'm not in the USA and blown out of hobby budget so its probably good thing they don't though I now want GW to do mystery boxes at that price!

$70 with shipping included? Uggggggggh I'm tempted, and also an idiot for getting more WMH / minis in general If I could pick at least WM or H I'd probably hit it right now, instead of letting it stew and seeing if I can tactically forget ...

So glad they went for mecha Godzilla right away. I think they had previously teased Gorgahadra instead. Still, nothing is quite as inspired to me as basing a robot off of the literal embodiment of the uncaring cosmos whose mere presence drives madness. I liked be the idea that someone thought, yeah let’s make a mecha version of that thing.

Games workshop can't even get their production/ distribution right for their box sets.. maybe they would be better off throwing random stuff in the boxes as they sure can't seem to get the box sets right

I'm trying to fight the urge on this one too.

Do I need it? Absolutely not.

Do I want to find out what's in the box? Naturally.

Do I secretly hope to see some Minicrate stuff in there? Wishful thinking...

They do a good job of coordinating the Mystery boxes with a new release from Black Anchor. I really love that new Merc colossal, and if I'm going to get it, why not a mystery box too?

That's awesome! I really hope they'll give us enough female Doom Reavers so we can field a whole unit with this escort.

Also, I noticed in the new game that UberCorp is part of the Destroyers. Weren't they the same agenda as Shadow Sun (who are protectors in the new game) in MonPoc? Strange that they'd have them switch sides, but the Kraken seems to be a protector now, rather than a Destroyer like the Martians (they were both in the 'invaders' agenda, in MonPoc before). I don't mind so much that they want to switch groups to different factions, but I'm sad that I can't have Robo Kondo, and King Kondo on one team, since the new game doesn't allow you to mix between factions.

I like the swap myself, and makes the evil robot versions of good monsters all the more eeevil.

It’s a good change. Tritons fit in well with Aprs and Dino’s and Ubercorp now better fits mecha Godzilla’s alien origins.
