Unleash The Power Of The Storm.
Armed with the most advanced mechanika in the Iron Kingdoms, the warjacks of Cygnar provide commanders with the perfect balance of mobility and stopping power. Led by Commander Coleman Stryker, the accurate battle cannon fire of the Charger, magical arc node of the Lancer, and the powerful quake hammer of the mighty Ironclad make short work of all who threaten the nation of Cygnar.

Khador’s powerful warjacks epitomize the national ideals of strength and resilience and are as relentless in battle as the frigid winters of their homeland.

?Sate the Hunger of Trolls upon the Carnage of War.
Available in softcover (PIP 1037) and hardcover (PIP 1038).
Trollblood Captain Gunnbjorn
Once a member of the Cygnaran military, Captain Gunnbjorn brings a unique perspective to the armies of the kriels. His formal military training and his keen mind give him a tactical approach to battle rather than the more primitive approach of overpowering brutality favored by less experienced trollkin warriors. Even the best laid plans have pitfalls, however, and when careful use of cover and terrain fail him, Gunnbjorn is quick to use his heavy bazooka to decimate enemy formations.
The Captain Gunnbjorn warlock comes in a blister (PIP 71045). A player may field one Captain Gunnbjorn in a Trollblood army.
Circle Orboros Druid Wilder
Deeply devoted to the beast path of druidic magic, druid wilders are a natural inclusion into any warlock’s battlegroup. Their close affinity to these wild beasts allows them to evoke the latent powers of a warbeast’s animus to lend strength to the pack. When not tapping into the innate arcane powers of the Circle’s warbeasts, wilders assist in directing the actions of the pack or in calming a beast that is consumed with battle lust.
The Druid Wilder solo comes in a blister (PIP 72049). A player may field one Druid Wilder for each warlock in a Circle Orboros army.
Circle Orboros Stone Keeper
Stone keepers are unwavering devotees of the earth-shaping path of druidic magic. These stoic blackclads share a deep connection with the magic-infused stones of the Circle. Calling upon the earth itself to do their bidding, stone keepers enshroud their rocky charges in mystical fog, shower their foes with a hail of rock, or warp their own flesh to stone-like rigidity.
The Stone Keeper Unit Attachment comes in a blister (PIP 72051). A player may field one Stone Keeper in a Shifting Stones unit (PIP 72016) for each warlock in a Circle Orboros army.
Legion of Everblight Ravagore
Most races are forced to rely on the tools that nature provides, but dragonspawn allow for infinite variety limited only by the imagination of their creators. The Ravagore is a walking siege engine with a deadly payload. Its blighted explosions can rip through enemies and the walls they hide behind. Once they close with the Ravagore, its heavy talons finish the job begun by its blighted breath.
The Ravagore heavy warbeast comes in a box (PIP 73046). A player may field any number of Ravagores for each warlock in a Legion of Everblight army.
Legion of Everblight Spell Martyrs
The forces of Everblight do not thrive due to numerical superiority or fortified holdings but rather due to their adaptability. Everblight’s spell martyrs are a gruesome example of this ruthless cunning. These blighted Nyss are imbued with the dragon’s blighted energy, allowing warlocks to tap into their essence to unleash powerful spells. This overwhelming flow of arcane energy consumes the spell martyr just as it consumes the bodies of Everblight’s enemies.
The Spell Martyr solos come in a blister (PIP 73053). A player may field up to three Spell Martyrs for each warlock in a Legion of Everblight army.
The skorne code of hoksune is an unforgiving ethos when carried to extremes. Those warriors who totally embrace their destiny are frightening, utterly committed warriors. These merciless savages endure pain so frequently that they are inured to all but the most grievous of wounds as they methodically slaughter all who stand in their path. Each nihilator wishes for nothing less than a glorious death after carrying out an unspeakable slaughter.
The Nihilators unit comes in a box (PIP 74048). A player may field up to two units of Nihilators for each warlock in a Skorne army.
Minion Croak Hunter
Some few anuras, a frog-like race commonly called “croaks” for their distinctive throaty calls, have made their way from the Shattered Spine Islands to chase both prey and adventure. The scouts and explorers known as hunters have developed a strong relationship with the gatormen of the Blindwater Congregation and will not hesitate to take up arms alongside these newfound allies. Croak hunters stalk their enemies from hidden positions before attacking them with spears dipped in deadly mixtures of natural poisons, including the toxins secreted by their own skin.
The Croak Hunter Solo comes in a blister (PIP 75026). A player may field up to three Croak Hunters for each warlock in a Circle, Legion, Skorne, Trollblood, or Blindwater Congregation Minion army.
