Privateer Press' main website has all the core rules for you to download for free.
Steamroller are rules for running a tournament, but most players use them for "standard" games on club night, too. Steamroller modifies stuff like how long the game lasts, how scenario points are scored, and how terrain should be set out.

Warroom is an app for mobile devices that does a lot of stuff, some better than others. In order of importance, they are:
- Contains all the model rules
- Contains all the theme rules. (This feature is implemented poorly if you just want to browse)
- Lets you build army lists. (This feature has a couple of bugs, and in certain situations will fail to tell you the list you built has an illegal model combination.)
- Lets you track damage during a game
- Lets you link to your opponent's Warroom, so you can read their cards and watch their damage tracking. (This feature is a bit buggy, and super draining on your battery)
- Contains a copy of the rulebook. (This feature works terribly)
You can download the app for free, and it contains some models for free (the battlebox contents I think?) but you have to buy most models as in-app purchases.
- Once you pay for a Faction, any future models for that Faction will be added to your app.
- If you buy the "All Factions" option, not only do you get all the current Factions, all future Factions will be automatically added to your app too.
This league is designed to encourage new players to begin learning the game with their chosen faction’s battle box and then expand their collection over the course of six weeks. The Journeyman League rewards both the player’s in-game victories and their skill with a brush.

If you and your opponent make a mistake, and you can't agree how to fix it, then this is how a judge would rule (most of the time):

- Discord Servers
- Discord is a very easy to use online chatroom. It's browser based, but it'll install an app version if you connect while on a mobile device
- Trashpandas (established 2016.02) The admins on this server prevent personal harrassment, but it's pretty much anything goes for content. It's got a bit of a "Wild West" vibe. Most people who post here are focussed on hyper-competitive lists.
- Line of Sight (established 2019.07) The admins here prevent negatively-toned criticism. It is a bit more newbie friendly than Trashpandas.
- Vassal (re-established 2018.08) This is for people playing the tabletop-simulator Vassal (see the #Fanmade Sites & Resources section below).
- Warmachine University
- Warmachine and Hordes for beginners
- Warmachine and Hordes General

Vassal - Tabletop Simulator
Not to be confused with an online game, Vassal is a program that simulates a tabletop game and lets you play it online. So yeah I suppose it is an online game.
You'll need to install the "base" Vassal program plus the Warmachine "module".
- This article by Fryta in 2018.03 describes it in detail
- Warmachine Module
- Discord (Vassal Server) Discord is a very easy to use online chatroom. It's browser based, but it'll install an app version if you connect while on a mobile device. This link is to a server specifically for people playhing Warmahordes on Vassal.
Army List Builder
Conflict Chamber is a browser-based free army builder. It is faster to load and use than Warroom is and, unlike Warroom, it doesn't make mistakes with list legality. On the other hand, it doesn't include any rules and is literally just an army builder.
There are two wiki sites dedicated to the lore of Warmachine and Hordes.
I don't know why there are two, it seems redundant in my opinion. I guess maybe they have slightly different focuses? I haven't actually bothered examining them to spot the difference.
Tournament Winning Lists
- Discount Games Inc keeps a record of the top three player's army lists, sourced from various tournaments. If you like copying what other people are using, it's invaluable. You can even filter it by caster! Link here
