Warmachine –steam-powered miniatures combat– is a table-top miniatures game published by Privateer Press. Players take on the role of an elite soldier-sorcerer known as a warcaster. While a warcaster and his army is a formidable force on the battlefield, a warcaster’s true strength is in their ability to magically control and coordinate the actions of their mighty warjacks steam-powered combat automatons that represent the pinnacle of military might in the Iron Kingdoms.
Hordes can be viewed as either an expansion to Warmachine, or a totally separate game using the same system. Either way, it contains new factions and is based on the same system. It is 100% compatible with Warmachine. Rather than the steampunk theme of Warmachine, Hordes focuses on the more primitive tribal powers: Trollblood, Skorne, Legion of Everblight, Circle Orboros,, Grymkin, Farrow (pig-men) and Gatormen. They wage war with great warbeasts in place of warjacks and, instead of warcasters, have warlocks that draw power from their beasts.
Our Warmahordes play happens Tuesday evenings starting between 6:00 and 6:30 PM, and Sundays starting at 1:00 pm. If you’re an experienced player, come down for some friendly games! If you’ve never played before but want to learn, our players are a welcoming bunch who will be happy to show you the ropes.
