June Releases for Privateer Press Announced
Privateer Press has sent out their retailer e-mail for the new releases they’ll have that month. There’s a lot of kits that used to be individuals now available in boxes (some plastic, some metal), including stuff that used to be a web-exclusive (like the Extreme Titan Gladiator and the Black Dragons IFP unit).
There’s a couple new books coming out, though, that I’m sure are what most people are looking forward to. They are Reckoning, the next Warmachine expansion book, and Forces of Distinction, that takes a lot of the alternate Theme Lists from No Quarter and puts them together in one book.
From the post:
WARMACHINE: Reckoning PIP 1060 (softcover) MSRP: $31.99 PIP 1061(hardcover) MSRP: $41.99
THE KINGDOMS OF HUMANITY STAND AS ONE.
The rising threat of the Cryxian armies has become too great. Death permeates the war-torn region, and Empress Ayn and King Leto themselves chance incredible danger to meet and coordinate their stand. The Protectorate’s Northern Crusade joins Khador and Cygnar in a final alliance of men against the unending armies of the Dragonfather. As these armies combine to expel the deathless forces of Cryx from the mainland, in tunnels below the battleground a lone Khadoran soldier fights to save one of the Motherland’s greatest legends.
WARMACHINE: Reckoning brings you the next thrilling chapter of the WARMACHINE saga. Fight for survival with:
-New warcasters, including new heroes as well as epic incarnations of some of WARMACHINE’s most feared and revered
-A new generation of colossals to level the opposition.
-An array of new warjacks, including the personal warjacks of several powerful warcasters.
-New solos to bring a greater range of utility to the battlefield.
-New narrative fiction continuing the action of WARMACHINE: Vengeance.
-A painting and modeling guide to help you prepare your forces for battle.
-Theme Force lists for each new warcaster, which allow you to create armies based on specialized forces found in the WARMACHINE world.
