Full title: Hordes: Devastation

Hordes: Devastation is the Hordes expansion released on 7th October 2015. It's main focus is a second generation of Gargantuan warbeasts. Unlike the 2nd generation Colossals, these will be entirely new sculpts and not based on the chassis of the existing ones. The only one remotely similar is the Glacier King, which is a frost-variant of the Mountain King, but even that is a brand new sculpt.   [Show/Hide]

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.   [Show/Hide]

2014.09 Exigence

2014 September

Full title: Hordes: Exigence

Info icon.png

First introduction of Warbeast Packs.

This book brings us lesser warlocks for three of the main factions. These models count as solos for the purpose of scenarios (can control and contest, but cannot dominate). Killing them doesn't result in a victory by assassination, since they aren't considered warlock models rules-wise. They're essentially Journeyman warlocks, if the analogy helps.

Apart from that, they have all Fury Manipulation abilities, can take their own battlegroup, have their own FURY stat, and some of them are have bonuses/discounts for certain warbeasts. Legion did not receive a lesser warlock.

Another feature of the book is the new warbeast pack model type, which count as both warbeasts and units. They consist of several small based models, warbeasts that are too small to be a threat individually, but in hunting packs they can bring down larger targets. They must abide by the rules of unit cohesion. They act as a single unit, and have a leader, but for the purposes of forcing, riling, and frenzy they are considered to be a single warbeast entity, with their FURY stat equal to the number of unit members in play. They can also be recipients of damage transfers. Fury points generated by the warbeast pack are placed on the unit leader. It is unclear at this point what that means for reaving and abilities like Spirit Eater. Models in this unit have no health spiral, but they have their own damage track (possibly between 5-10 wounds per model).

Warbeast packs for Legion and Skorne have been released in Exigence.   [Show/Hide]

Brand new Faction.
First "Limited Release" Faction.

EMBRACE THE PERFECTION OF THE MACHINE

To those who worship Cyriss, no tenet is more sacred than the Fifth Harmonic—the belief that the Clockwork Goddess will manifest once the perfect machine is created across all of Caen. The key to this vessel’s completion lies in the geomantic fulcrums of power that cover the world, many in hostile territory. For centuries the cult has been amassing an immense mechanikal army, poised to take the final steps in readying for their goddess. The time has come for the Convergence to complete the Great Work, and they will let none stand in their way.

Devote yourself to mechanikal perfection and transcend the flesh with Forces of WARMACHINE: Convergence of Cyriss, featuring:   [Show/Hide]
  • Complete faction rules and profiles for fielding the Convergence of Cyriss in WARMACHINE Mk II, including Unbound formations.
  • An in-depth look at the history and science of the Convergence of Cyriss and its enigmatic goddess.
  • A painting guide to help you ready your forces for battle.
  • Theme Force lists and rules, which allow you to create armies based on specialized forces from the Convergence.

2012.07 Colossals

2012 July

Full title:Warmachine: Colossals

Info icon.png

New model type: Colossals.

The main attractions for the Colossals expansion are;   [Show/Hide]
  • Epic(er) Warcasters: These are the "third form" of warcasters -- epic warcasters who have gone even MORE epic. Sometimes referred to as "legendary", but this was a player defined term found around the PP forums. The official term is still epic. PP staff refer to the different casters with a numerical title (example: Nemo1, Nemo2, Nemo3).
  • Colossals: Do you think your heavy warjacks are just too small? You need Colossals! Colossals are super-heavy warjacks, mounted on 120mm bases (same base size as a Battle Engine). They follow a combination of the Warjack and Battle Engine rules, splitting the front arc into two sides, each side having a left damage grid and a right damage grid, for a total of TWO damage grids each. Damage is assigned by determining which half of the colossal the attacking model is in at the time of attacking (If attacking the left side, damage would be applied to the left grid and the same for the right). Colossals also have a new damage box, the Superstructure (S) box. This is used like an L, R, or H box, but it refers to the heavy mounted weapons which the Colossal can fire in either arc.
    • Power Attacks: They also gain two new power attacks and an added ability on an old one. At the cost of a focus, it can make a pseudo-thresher attack and hit anything within the range of its giant fists, or a 'powerful strike', which is like a slam but you get to punch it at the same time. This goes great with it's new slam rule - if the enemy is smaller than your superjacks, an extra 2 inches is added to any slam attack it makes. Note that these only work with colossals.
