Privateer Press Previews March Releases

Ring out the old year. March in the new. And coming in March will be some new Warmachine and Monsterpocalypse releases from Privateer Press. Just what's coming? Well, let's take a look.

Among the initiates of the Wardens, there are those who excel in their training far beyond that of their peers. These individuals are capable of truly incomprehensible feats of martial strength, such as wielding a pair of the Wardens’ signature heavy voulges with the same grace as their brethren muster with a single blade. These individuals are rare and gifted and are quickly perceived by their trainers.

These select few undergo a far more extreme regiment of training than the standard Warden, learning to master the art of warfare in ways few can imagine. To complete special training, the initiate must learn to fight within a specially modified suit of Warden armor, one that features a pair of shoulder-mounted Vortex Cannons, the very same weapons used by the warjacks of House Vyre. The energy required to power this armor and the force of the cannons firing make simply wearing the armor a lethal prospect. Those who survive the ordeal are awarded the rank of Warden Executioner, earning them a lifetime of fear, awe, and respect from their kin.

The Wardens of House Ellowuyr are the elite shock troops of a house renowned for its martial prowess. Initiate Wardens are handpicked at a young age, spending the entirety of their adolescent years training to wield the arms and armor of the Warden discipline. Not only must every initiate master the heavy voulge, but they must also fight with the same elegance and fluidity as their swordsmen brethren while encased in massive suits of augmented armor. The enemies of the Retribution stare, slack jawed, as the Wardens carve paths through their ranks, protected by suits of armor that simply should not be able to move that fast or kill with such ease.

The Savage Swarm continues to scour the planet for resources to bolster their numbers. Drawn to the light of civilization, they have become the monsters that haunts the dreams of mankind. As their numbers continue to climb, new threats have emerged. Dynastavus acts as a queen of sorts; however, unlike her bee kin, she does not remain safely in the hive. Instead, she leads the swarm with the ferocity of a wasp. Nothing will be spared from the mounting threat of the Savage Swarm.

This starter box contains everything a player needs to start playing Monsterpocalpyse fresh. Existing players will find a new updated rulebook along with two brand-new battle maps. The maps, River City Rampage and Downtown Beatdown, bring two new concepts to Monsterpocalpyse maps: River City Rampage has a river running down the middle of the map, creating chokepoints and making movement from one side to the other difficult for units, and Downtown Beatdown is the first map with 24 building foundations, meaning a player can play with all 12 buildings they can bring with them to each game!

The Savage Swarm continues to scour the planet for resources to bolster their numbers. Drawn to the light of civilization, they have become the monsters that haunt the dreams of mankind. As their numbers continue to climb, new threats have emerged. Dire Ants move forward in lockstep, leaving nothing organic in their wake. They act as both the front line soldier and the workhorse of the Savage Swarm. Spy Flies, on the other hand, scout ahead of the swarm. They are able to interlink with the swarm collective, making them the eyes of the advancing army.

The enigmatic Elemental Champions have redoubled their efforts to save the world from the ravages of the Monsterpocalypse. Elemental Champions use their mastery of the elements—air, earth, fire, and water—to protect the planet from the destruction wrought by the global war. Hurricanius herself leads the newly created forces of her order to the aid of Incinerus and all other Protectors of Earth and commands the winds to aid her allies and punish any foe foolish enough to take to the sky themselves.

This pack contains unit support for the elements of Fire and Air. Kami tend to be less powerful than full-fledged Avatars, but that isn't to say they are not dangerous in their own right.
