Privateer Press Launches Warmachine and Hordes Cards Database

We’ve known that Privateer Press was going to go mostly-paperless with their games Warmachine and Hordes. This means you’ll have to get the cards online. But where? Well, in the new Card Database that they’ve launched, of course. It’s free to access and has every card for every mini there. It will be regularly updated, as necessary, whenever new changes to model’s stats or abilities are made.

Privateer Press seeks Studio Painter

Are you a really good colored-goop slinger? I am not. My painting skills were never that great and have certainly atrophied over the years due to disuse. But if your painting is of the level that other gamers drool over it (make sure to seal your figures well…), then Privateer Press might just have a spot for you on their team. They’re looking for a new Studio Painter.

Privateer Press is updating No Quarter magazine. As they push for more digital content, changing their books and cards to digital releases, No Quarter is looking to supplement that material.

Privateer Press Previews September Releases For Warmachine/Hordes

We’re just over halfway through June. It’s getting really hot outside. Personally, I’m looking forward to this fall. Why? That’s my secret. I’m always looking forward to fall.

Privateer Press Announces Company of Iron Warmachine/Hordes Skirmish Game

I originally picked up Warmachine as a “quick, small, fast game to play when I didn’t want to play a ‘big game’ of 40k.” Not long afterward, Warmachine turned into a pretty big game, all its own. Well, Privateer Press is pulling back and coming out with Company of Iron, a new skirmish game based in the Warmachine/Hordes universe.

Privateer Press Ends Pressgang Program

Normally we’re posting about companies starting up volunteer programs. This one’s the other side of the spectrum. Privateer Press has announced that their Pressgang program is coming to a close. I was never a PG. I actually had my application rejected 😛
But I was a Mentor and then a Moderator for the PP forums, and most of my friends I have now I got through my time with Privateer. So, it’s sad to see the program go.

Privateer Press Launches Community Integrated Development Program

When it comes to the games we love, we can be very protective of them. While every new release may give you some great, balanced, interesting new cards/models/dice for your game, there’s also the worry that a new set of releases will break the game. So, how does a company make sure that new releases are balanced? Playtesting, of course. But for playtesting to be effective, you need a large sample size of game situations to sift through. Privateer Press has decided that will be done through their Community Integrated Development Program, which has just launched.
