Privateer Press Previews Cygnar Trencher Force Box Set

Part of Warmachine/Hordes is that players are encouraged to run theme forces. That is, an entire army based around a certain style of unit or a way of play. Sure, you can go totally “combined arms” with some mercenaries or minions thrown in, but usually you’ll be able to get a couple bonuses if you go particularly for one type of force. Well, they’re further helping that along by coming out with a Trencher Theme Force box set. And I’m sure if it goes over well, we can expect more like this in the future.

From the post:

The trenchers of Cygnar are among the most tenacious soldiers ever to take the battlefields of the Iron Kingdoms. The first into the fight and the last to leave it, the soldiers of the Trencher Corps form the vanguard of Cygnar’s army, holding ground against all odds on behalf of their comrades in arms. Any enemy who tries to assault their fortified positions faces a force of tough-as-nails troopers ready to cut them down with rifles, bayonets, and even the blades of their shovels.

Take command of these veteran soldiers with this box, which contains a full complement of trenchers ready to support your warcaster’s battlegroup. Dig in and hold the line!

This box contains:

• 8-Page Trencher Primer
• Commander Anson Hitch character Solo
• Patrol Dog Weapon Attachment
• Trencher Cannon Crew unit (3)
• 2 Trencher Infantry Rifle Grenadier Weapon Attachments
• Trencher Infantry Officer & Sniper Command Attachment
• Trencher Infantry Unit (10)
• Trencher Master Gunner Solo

    This would be good for Company of Iron.

    • Quite possibly so, yes. I’m kinda looking forward to those rules. I wanna give it a try with my old Stormblades that haven’t been out of the AT in… oh, probably close to 7 years at this point.

        Haha. Yeah. there’s been many units that rarely hit the WMH table that I hope become playable in CoI.
