Our Business is War Where war arises, warriors-for-hire inevitably follow—and conflict is constant within the Iron Kingdoms. The mercenaries of the region are as varied as its lands and the peoples who inhabit them. From vile assassins such as the infamous Croe’s Cutthroats to the Hammerfall companies from the dwarven nation of Rhul and the highly disciplined Steelheads, generals can find mercenaries to suit any battlefield role.
Whether you field mercenaries as faction reinforcements or as their own army, Forces of WARMACHINE: Mercenaries contains everything you need to employ these sell-swords in battle, featuring: Complete faction rules and profiles for using all current Mercenary models in WARMACHINE Mk II. New troops to bring to the fight, plus the all-new warcaster Drake MacBain. An in-depth look at the various mercenary charters that seek profit amid the wars of the Iron Kingdoms. A painting and modeling guide to help you ready your forces for battle. Mercenary Theme Force lists and rules, which allow you to create armies based on specialized mercenary arrangements in the WARMACHINE world.
Fill Your Coffers with the Wages of War!
Cygnar Stormblade Storm Gunner MSRP $11.99 PIP 31069
The signature weapon of Cygnar’s Stormblades, the storm glaive is one of the best-known mechanikal weapons in all the Iron Kingdoms. Despite the short-ranged electrical discharges that the weapon is capable of firing, it is primarily a close combat weapon. This naturally leaves the Stormblades vulnerable to enemy gunfire as they advance to meet their foes in melee. Cygnar’s arcane mechaniks devised the storm thrower both to provide storm knights with covering fire and to enhance the accuracy of blasts produced by storm glaives. Stormblade Storm Gunner comes in a blister. A player may field up to three Stormblade Storm Gunners for each Stormblade unit (PIP 31019) in a Cygnar army (up to six total for each warcaster in a Cygnar army). Ordering note – Because up to three Storm Gunners can be added to each Stormblade Infantry unit, we recommend ordering twice as many Storm Gunners as you would order for a standard unit attachment.
Protectorate Exemplar Errant Seneschal MSRP $14.99 PIP 32067
Elevation to the rank of seneschal among the Exemplar Errants is no simple promotion. One of the superlative few chosen to command his brother knights must be a veteran of numerous missions on foreign soil. His most formidable asset may be his understanding of Menoth’s purpose for him on Caen. His brother Errants know he has a special duty, and so great is their belief in the Creator and their Seneschal that if the enemies of the Temple strike him down they will volunteer their own souls to take his place in Urcaen. Exemplar Errant Seneschal comes in a blister. A player may field two Exemplar Errant Seneschals for each warcaster in a Protectorate army.
Cryx Styxis Blood Hag MSRP $9.99 PIP 34073
The blood hags lead their sisters in the most hallowed rites: sacrificing the males born to the Satyxis, initiating the girl children into the cruel ways of the Satyxis, and conducting the auguries that steer the fate of their people. Decades of practice in these corrupt traditions grant the hags unparalleled skill in their art. Leading blood witch covens, they bestow their dark favors upon their sisters. Their very presence leeches the vitality of their enemies, and the most potent of their invocations can temporarily make the bodies of the hag and her followers into blood-hued wraiths who laugh at the impotent weapons of their enemies. Satyxis Blood Hag comes in a blister. A player may field one Satyxis Blood Hag for each warcaster in a Cryx army.
Cryx Satyxis Raider Captain MSRP $9.99 PIP 34074
Raider captains are some of the most notorious pirates to sail the black waves of the Meredius. Each of them commands a crew of Satyxis and other inhuman monsters kept in line only by barbaric punishments and the promise of pillage and bloodshed. Guided by whim and murderous inclination, their vessels are the scourge of the Broken Coast. Once the current of violence has taken a raider captain, she becomes caught up in the slaughter, leaping from victim to victim as the deck runs slick with blood and the air grows heavy with the screams of the dying. Satyxis Raider Captain comes in a blister. A player may field two Satyxis Raider Captains for each warcaster in a Cryx army.
Mercenary Drake MacBain MSRP $11.99 PIP 41073
Some mercenaries fight for a lost home, for revenge, or for adventure. Drake MacBain fights for coin, pure and simple. No mission is too dangerous, no battlefield too bloody; he’ll work for any of the warring nations of the Iron Kingdoms without moral qualm. MacBain fights with the gritty determination of the hired professional and will let nothing stop him from the completion of his contracts. He is the consummate mercenary and has the tools to finish any job. Drake MacBain comes in a blister. A player may field one Drake MacBain in his Mercenary, Cygnar, Protectorate, Khador, or Cryx army.
Trollblood Dire Troll Bomber MSRP $42.99 PIP 71046
The escalation of war has provided many windfalls for the kriels. Among these are certain dangerous and explosive chemicals, which though unsuitable for use as gunpowder have been put to other uses. The trollkin have begun arming some of the more cunning dire trolls with barrels of these chemicals to heave at the enemy. The explosions bother the resilient trolls little and wreak terrible damage upon their foes. Dire Troll Bomber comes in a box. A player may field any number of Dire Troll Bombers in a Trollblood army.
Trollblood Trollkin Runebearer Warlock Attachment MSRP $12.99 PIP 71051
Some of the most learned trollkin runescribes choose to accompany their leaders into battle. Carrying the sacred tablets of their kriel, runebearers are capable of amplifying the Dhunian gifts of trollkin warlocks. The glyphs glow as the runebearer speaks them aloud, easing their warlock’s use of their fury-driven prayers and sorcery. Trollkin Runebearer comes in a blister (PIP 71051). A player may field one Trollkin Runebearer for each warlock in a Trollblood army.
Circle Orboros Warpwolf Stalker MSRP $TBD PIP 72044
The druids of the Circle Orboros have continued to experiment with the forbidden processes by which they transform men into the terrifying warpwolves. Volunteers chosen for the keenness of their minds as well as their strength in battle are candidates for the altered rites that produce the warpwolf stalker. Unlike their totally animalistic kin, the stalkers retain a more than animal cunning. They prowl the dense foliage of the Immoren forests, stalking their unsuspecting prey before leaping out to deliver powerful killing blows in a berserk frenzy. Warpwolf Stalker comes in a box. A player may field any number of Warpwolf Stalkers in a Circle army.
Skorne Razor Worm MSRP $17.99 PIP 74047
Dragged from beneath the hardened ground of the Bloodstone Marches, razor worms are frightening and voracious monsters. The worms are difficult to track as they burrow through solid rock or the tangled roots of dense terrain. Under the direction of skorne warlocks, the razor worms bore through the surface earth of the battlefield, erupting from the ground as a nightmare of hungry teeth and piercing spines. Those they attack are dragged below the earth and consumed whole, their screams cut short by the choking earth. Razor Worm comes in a blister. A player may field any number of Razor Worms in a Skorne army.
