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.
From the announcement:
Privateer Press announced today the closing of its long-standing Press Gang program.
“The Press Gang has had an amazing and positive impact on the WARMACHINE & HORDES community during its run,” said Chief Creative Officer Matt Wilson, “but over the years, it has grown to a point that we do not feel we can continue to offer both the Press Gangers and our retail customers the individualized attention we were once able to.”
Privateer Press will continue to support the Press Gang program until it comes to a final close on April 30, 2017.
The company will continue to support a variety of Organized Play events, including several new events debuting this year, at conventions and through brick-and-mortar retail stores. Future event kits are planned with additional support, including premium exclusives available nowhere else. WARMACHINE & HORDES events can be run by anyone wishing to organize the events for a local community, including employees of retail stores. Retailers are invited to contact Privateer Press customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to obtain help in organizing in-store events.
