July 13th sees the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for Warcaster: The Thousand Worlds, the next expansion for the game from Privateer Press. They're offering a special early-bird pledge level for the first 48 hours that you can check out below. Also, this expansion brings in Cadres. They're sort of like Theme Lists from Warmachine.

Front and center to the Warcaster: The Thousand Worlds Kickstarter campaign are Faction Cadres, bands of related units that, when taken in your battle force, unlock an exciting and powerful Champion unit. The different elements of each Cadre can be incorporated into a battle force a la carte, depending on your strategic plans. But the Champion unit requires that all elements of the Cadre be included on your battle force roster. The upside? The Champion is effectively a ‘free’ inclusion, as it does not occupy a slot in your roster, thus increasing your in-game options and potential force power. The Champions also happen to be the coolest looking units in the Hyperuranion!
