We had a chance to grab Lyle Lowery from Privateer Press and we figured you guys might want to hear how they are doing and their experiences from the floor of Templecon 2013.
TGN: Hey Lyle, how's it going?
Lyle Lowry: It's been a great show for us. Obviously we had a lot to say in our key address early in the show; we had a lot to say and a lot of great things to show. We have really been enjoying it.
TGN: How has Templecon been treating Privateer these last couple of days?
LL: Really well. Its been a huge turnout; we have like 500 people playing. Lots of excitement about the Convergence of Cyriss and lots of good response about High Command. High Command is a deck building game that a lot of people have shown some real excitement about. We also showed the new Omega Protocol product with some awesomely sculpted miniatures; which is a firefight style board game from the Level 7 world setting. It has been a great show so far.
TGN: What was your most exciting event here, in your opinion?
LL: Ooh. I'm going to have to go with the team tourney. Team Privateer played this year; me and two other staffers got to go and play. We don't normally get to play and we got to play against some of the fans and players. So, that was my favorite part of the show.
TGN: Team Privateer, eh? What sort of army did you bring?
LL: Since it was a team format; there were three lists. I brought Khador with a preview of the Greylord Outriders; Will brought the Legion of Everblight with the preview of the Archangel...which everyone was wowing over; and Ed - the master of the Cryx - brought a list he was really familiar and good with, so he took people to task with his force.
TGN: What is your personal favorite part of the show?
LL: Well, I hate to keep going back to the presentation, but the keynote presentation was my favorite part of the show. I put a lot of time and effort into the presentation, and it was great to see how it was received. You never know exactly how it is going to turn out, and it is always hard to keep a secret that long; with everything coming together the way that it did, it was great to show the fans and see their reaction. When they're excited about the things we've been excited about for so long, it's very rewarding.
TGN: Is there anything you'd like to add before we let you go?
JL: Ooh...what do I want to add? The keynote presentation showed a lot of what we have planned in 2013, but we have a lot more planned for the future and definitely more to come. It's the 10th anniversary of Warmachine, so try to come out to Lock and Load 2013 so you can see the emergence of the forces of Cyriss. There is a lot more in the future, that's for sure.
