It's also worth noting that Warmachine's sister game, Grind, will be promoted from 'fun little game you can play with your Warmachine figures' up to full fledged board game status.

Full Metal Battle Sport

Bellevue WA. June 30, 2009
—Privateer Press is pleased to announce Grind, an extreme combat sports board game for two players ages 14 and up releasing this October. In Grind players customize a team of steamjacks—10-ton, steam-powered mechanical robots—and battle to move a large, spiked ball into their opponent’s goal. The game comes with several highly detailed plastic components, including six Runner steamjack figures, four Crusher steamjack figures, 32 interchangeable weapon arms, two spiked pillars, and the Grinder ball. Also included are a full-color game board, 11 tokens, and custom dice.

When asked about the design behind Grind, Privateer Press Game Development Manager Erik-Jason Yaple said, “As we were developing Grind we looked at nearly every sport in existence for inspiration. Grind borrows from American and international football, rugby, billiards, hockey, and even stock car racing. The game delivers aggressive, in-your-face action as players slam and bash their steamjacks into each other. At the same time, it rewards careful planning and strategy as players try to get the Grinder across the playing field and into their opponent’s goal while the clock is running down. And thanks to the incredible amount of steamjack customization, players can build the team that suits their play style right out of the box.”

The official Grind webpage will be launched on Friday, July 3rd on http://www.privateerpress.com.

Battle mage magisters manipulate invisible energies to tear an enemy limb from limb or to haul weighty machinery around like pieces on a game board. The massive arcanika gauntlets they wear not only serve as conduits for their powers, but can deliver tremendous crushing blows and send opponents flying.

Nayl is one of the soulless, destined to stand forever apart from his people, an uncomfortable reminder of the doom awaiting Scyrah and all of Ios. At rest Nayl seems empty, yet a blade in his hand moves with a will of its own, expressing echoes of emotions. Nayl’s trainers prepared him from youth to serve as an arcane vortex when he at last perishes, striking against the Retribution’s enemies even as death consumes him.

The new Extreme sculpt is: the Juggernaut.

Twenty-nine pieces, $60, and without question living up to the size of the other Extreme sculpts. Here's a size comparison with the regular Juggernaut, Beast-09, and the Behemoth.

Two new plastic units for Hordes:

Image
Warspears
The blight has twisted the minds as well as the flesh of these ogrun, addicting them to the joy of bloodlust. If their enemies are not killed outright from the impact of their spears, the tremendous lengths of wood dangling from the creatures’ vitals can trip them up long enough for the blighted ogrun to close and finish the job.
Classification: Plastic Unit
PIP Code: 73041
Price: $44.99*
Model Count: 5
Packaging: Box

Image
Fennblades
Trollkin called Fennblades calmly wait shoulder to shoulder—wicked hooked greatswords raised at the ready—listening to the approach of thundering hooves. Some duck lances to sweep blades through the legs of mounts while others swing their blades straight into the chests of the riders. The result is always the same, as Fennblades stand victorious over the bodies of the slain.
Classification: Plastic Unit
PIP Code: 71042
Price: $49.99*
Model Count: 10
Packaging: Box
*Product information and prices subject to change

Both are medium-based units. And if I'm not mistaken, these are the second and third infantry units Privateer's done in plastic. Which makes me wonder just what they're going to do when they're comfortable with the medium.

Beginning to think the size of these miniatures is making up for something in the PP miniature design office...

Lol, not too surprising as warmachine is marketed with the slogan of "play like you got a pair"

As far as the models go they are absolutely amazing and these are also going to be in plastic, which is awesome hotness. I have armies for both everblight and troolbloods so I'm probably going to get sucked back into playing WM & Hordes a lot more often due solely to these new models, curse them! ;)

An odd idea hit me today, I really prefer the PP rules over 40k but the 40k imagry is just too good to make a permanant break with. I was thinking what if I worked up a system using warmachine rules designed around 40k units. Might make for a fun hybrid game.

Cygnar already plays quite simular to Tau with tons of specialized shooting, it it wouldn't take much effort to translate warjacks into crisis suits and dreadnoughts. The focus system and feats would probably be the only difficult thing to translate but I'm sure something could be worked out.

The mech design to the Retribution army reminds me of how the Protoss mount their weapons in Starcraft. Hope they have Energizer. :P

The new plastic jacks upped officially to the PP site.

http://privateerpress.com/warmachine

Jugger chassis got replaced with a 1 down of the extreme sculpt version. The cryx arms look a bit spindly but apart from that pretty good all round. Especially as the price on them is much cheaper :)

Busy day for warmachine it seems. The site got updated again today with the new Caine model.

And a few articles about their upcoming releases to mark 2 have had this as the new cover for the book coming out in January.

Looking forward to plastic jacks in the new year.

Nice cover graphic, though I would have been tempted to put heavy romanised bars ][ behind the title graphic and lower helmet element, in the same rusted metal finish. It would have looked very dynamic, blended in and "at a glance" easy to note it is the 'Second Edition'.

The 'PRIME MKII' subtitle just comes off badly and the whole centred layout loses it's composition.

Anyhow, layouts aside, looking forward to the new models myself and the possibility they'll soon be big enough for one to ride on as you play the game. :P

Someone remind me why I'm still playing 40K and not Warmachine.

The new Caine model is badass (he's totally based on Bruce Campbell, he has to be), and the artwork... wow. Check out the full wallpaper of the image here.

I just can't wait to see what the new cards will look like. Since they removed them for sale knowing them they're reworking the images also. >_> wonder if they'll ever sell them as one big brick to cover all current armies materials. :P

Yeah the full decks for each faction (90 cards approx) are coming out in janurary.


P.S. More plastic jack variants were put up on their site for cryx and menoth and also a merc jack.
Hoping to see the khador variants soon, as i bet the destroyer and marauder will look fantastic on the new chassis.

Tbh I'm mainly happy as plastic multipart kits means finally having some bits of the jacks without scrapping $17+ just for bits. First thing on the agenda is a Crisis Battlesuit with Power Fists. >_< Better yet some of the guns on them. :crafty: Here's hoping they have the singles of the cards up fast also. I've got several multiples and I'll need them if I sucker a buddy into this game.

An Xv8-XV9 conversion with the new Cygnar Chaingun arms would be interesting :P

Need to finish my Khador before I can get some blues..... It's hard to resist..

Meh just wait and see if they make new army boxes featuring the plastic jacks. Although the way I see it is most likely shops and websites are going to reduce the prices of the metal jacks to push them out before ordering the plastic kits. :evil:

Game's cheap enough anyways so at least unlike 40k they update their armies with each book also.
