Privateer Press have posted details and pricing for their May 2010 Warmachine releases.

Forces of WARMACHINE: Cryx Softcover MSRP $34.99 PIP 1029
Forces of WARMACHINE: Cryx Hardcover MSRP $44.99 PIP 1030
From the darkness of their nightmarish isle, the undead legions of Cryx strike forth at the Iron Kingdoms, each battle serving to fuel their unholy factories as necrotechs shape everything that walks, crawls, or slithers out of their dank, macabre workshops. To oppose Cryx is to oppose death itself as legions of undead mechanithralls, ghostly bane thralls, looming black iron helljacks, and skittering bonejacks surge forth at the command of their lich lord masters. Serve the glorious Dragonfather and bend the power of death to your will with Forces of WARMACHINE: Cryx, featuring:

  • Complete faction rules and profiles for using all current Cryx models in WARMACHINE Mk II.
  • New troops to bring to the fight, plus the all-new warcaster Lich Lord Venethrax.
  • An in-depth look at the history and structure of Cryx’s military.
  • A painting and modeling guide to help you ready your forces for battle.
  • Cryx Theme Force lists and rules, which allow you to create armies based on specialized forces from the Nightmare Empire of Cryx.

Let the Iron Kingdoms Fall by Your Hand.

Cygnar Trencher Master Gunner MSRP $9.99 PIP 31067
Master gunners are survivors of countless battles and have earned expertise that makes them some of the most valued artillerists in all Cygnar. Versed in all artillery skills, from barrage firing patterns to the use of defilades, they are experts in the complex commands used to coordinate a battery of field guns. Where other armies make use of artillery as support, the master gunners orchestrate their batteries into precision instruments of war. Trencher Master Gunner comes in a blister. A player may field two Trencher Master Gunners for each warcaster in a Cygnar army.

Cygnar Stormsmith Storm Tower MSRP $14.99 PIP 31072
The storm tower is one of the most potent applications of storm technology. When activated, the tower mechanikally aggravates the atmosphere above. Storm clouds coalesce instantly as lightning arcs downward, creating a circuit between the tower and the sky. With a blinding flash, the generator disgorges bolts of power that arc through the enemy ranks. Stormsmith Storm Tower comes in a blister. A player may field two Stormsmith Storm Towers for each warcaster in a Cygnar army.

Protectorate Vassal Mechanik MSRP $7.99 PIP 32064
Prayer alone does not maintain the warjacks of the Protectorate of Menoth. The mechaniks who learn their trade from the Vassals of Menoth view their duties as a holy necessity. They follow the Protectorate’s warjacks into the thick of battle, using the ’jacks themselves as moving fortresses. Armed only with his tools, the mechanik’s greatest weapon is his mechanikal aptitude to keep the ’jacks running no matter how severe their damage. Vassal Mechanik comes in a blister. A player may field three Vassal Mechaniks for each warcaster in a Protectorate army.

Protectorate Exemplar Errant Officer and Standard Bearer MSRP $24.99 PIP 32066
Ranking errants, veterans of countless crusades and incursions are chosen to lead their brother-knights in battles abroad. Pure in heart and thought, they are trusted to carry out their holy mission no matter the bloody price. Their dedication and inspiring example is so great the knights they lead will make any sacrifice to ensure the success of their sacred missions. Accompanied by the battle standard of the Order of Exemplar, the errants are inspired to the greatest valor, letting no obstacle come between them and the heathen enemy.
Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard comes in a blister. A player may field one Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard for each warcaster in a Protectorate army.

Khador Assault Kommando Flame Thrower MSRP $10.99 PIP 33069
The never-ending arms race between nations has led the Khadoran High Kommand to embrace any weapon that may give them an advantage, no matter how inhumane. The flamethrower issued to kommando squads is the current production model of several generations of prototypes. A huge canister is strapped to the kommando’s back and feeds the propellant gun he carries in place of his standard carbine. Trenchers have come to fear the Khadoran flamethrowers, concentrating their fire upon those who carry them. The life of an assault kommando who takes up the flamethrower may be short, but he can be sure that many of the Motherland’s enemies will die before him. Assault Kommando Flame Thrower comes in a blister. A player may field up to three Assault Kommando Flame Throwers for each Assault Kommando unit (PIP 33046) in a Khador army (up to six total for each warcaster in a Khador army).

Cryx Lich Lord Venethrax MSRP $19.99 PIP 34069
Tasked with the researching of draconic lore, Lich Lord Venethrax is supremely well-suited to root out and destroy the Dragonfather’s dark progeny. Venethrax has dedicated his immortal existence to Toruk’s final war and is prepared to consume every blighted creature in charnel flames and blood. His mighty halberd, Wyrmbane, has dismembered countless draconic creations, and the lich lord’s very presence corrodes the world around him. That he now steps forth from Cryx is a dire portent, for it heralds the coming of war between the dragons. Lich Lord Venethrax comes in a blister. A player may field one Lich Lord Venethrax in a Cryx army.

Cryx Iron Lich Asphyxious 2010 MSRP $16.99 PIP 34076
Asphyxious has become the Dragonfather’s chosen instrument on the mainland and the unholy general of the rapacious unliving army of Cryx. Wherever he goes, he leaves behind him ashen fields of lifeless grasses and withered trees. Blackened corpses and bubbling pools of gore are all that remain of his victims. A prime source of the cancer feeding upon western Immoren, he gleefully spreads the shadow of the Dragonlord’s wings. It is a shadow that will one day, by his efforts, extend across all Caen. This all-new version of Iron Lich Asphyxious presents a dynamic new sculpt for this classic warcaster. Iron Lich Asphyxious – 2010 comes in a blister. A player may field one Iron Lich Asphyxious in a Cryx army

Retribution Mage Hunter Assassin Variant MSRP $7.99 PIP 35033
Mage hunter assassins are practiced killers and mage hunters with refined skills. Recruitment for this cabal is slow, for their chain blades are tricky to use and require exceptional reflexes. A skilled assassin can send the blade flying tremendous distances before whipping the chain to bring the weapon to hand for close-quarter fighting. The alternate sculpt Mage Hunter Assassin provides a dynamic new pose that allows players to differentiate their models on the tabletop. Mage Hunter Assassin (variant pose) comes in a blister. A player may field two Mage Hunter Assassins for each warcaster in a Retribution army.

Mercenary Steelhead Riflemen MSRP $49.99 PIP 41074
A doctrine of combined arms lies at the heart of the Steelhead Company, and their riflemen are one of the most important elements of these combined forces. Working in concert with other Steelheads or the regular forces of a client army, the riflemen are skilled shooters capable of decimating enemy lines or providing covering fire to ensure their allies reach the enemy in one piece. Each rifleman is a sure shot; when ordered to concentrate their fire at a single target, a group of these riflemen become truly deadly. Steelhead Riflemen come in a box. A player may field two Steelhead Rifleman units for each warcaster in a Mercenary, Cryx, Cygnar, Khador, or Protectorate of Menoth army.

Mercenary High Shield Gun Corps Officer and Standard Bearer MSRP $16.99 PIP 41078
The fortress of Hammerfall produces some of the most outstanding riflemen in all of Rhul, and the captains who graduate from that training are superb leaders. A client army lucky enough to hire a Gun Corps company led by one of these officers is assured of a mercenary troop that will perform flawlessly no matter the battlefield or enemy. In battle, the captain is accompanied by a standard bearer charged with carrying the company’s standard, a device with inscriptions detailing the legal status of the company as well as its valorous deeds. High Shield Gun Corps Officer & Standard come in a blister. A player may field one High Shield Gun Corps Officer & Standard for each warcaster in a Mercenary, Cygnar, or Khador army.

Mercenary Horgenhold Artillery Corps MSRP $24.99 PIP 41079
The clan lords of Rhul viewed the advent of artillery among the human nations of the Iron Kingdoms with amusement. The Rhulic Moot has traditionally taken a dim view of mercenary operations, but in recent years the profits certain clan lords have gained is difficult to dismiss. Certain provisions were made to allow Rhulic mercenaries abroad to equip themselves with siege cannons and other weapons of war. Their powerful mortars are extremely destructive and can be fired indirectly, giving the Rhulic army an intimidating ability to control the battlefield. Horgenhold Artillery Corps come in a blister. A player may field two Horgenhold Artillery Corps for each warcaster in a Mercenary, Cygnar, or Protectorate army.
