Seattle WA. February 9, 2009—Privateer Press, Inc. is proud to announce the new Mk II edition rules for its WARMACHINE and HORDES tabletop games.

“In the past six years of WARMACHINE, the game has grown rapidly, and we feel the time has come to reevaluate and retool in preparation for the upcoming years of full metal combat. We have chosen to tighten the bolts on both the general game rules and the individual model rules to make every model as compelling as possible and to perfect the WARMACHINE experience,” stated Jason Soles, Privateer Press lead developer.

The public will get their first look at the WARMACHINE Mk II rules in April through an open field test, allowing players to become familiar with the changes while providing feedback that will assist Privateer Press in making final adjustments to WARMACHINE Mk II before going to press.

The WARMACHINE: Prime Mk II rulebook will be released to the public in early 2010. The new edition of HORDES will follow later in the year. All tournaments, leagues, and release events that make up Privateer Press organized play will adopt the new edition on its release.

More information regarding the WARMACHINE Mk II rules will be announced as it becomes available. This and other news items can be found at and in the pages of No Quarter Magazine.


Exciting news!  The game is in need of  big redux to the rules.  They are pretty sound, but the sheer number of models has caused it to get quite complicated.  A streamlined version of the rules.. consolidating a few things, and re-balancing things from the ground up would be great.  I am looking forward to seeing what transpires.  It is also very cool that they are doing a public trial of the new rules before they run them in print.  Its a great idea to make sure they don't miss anything.. the folks in the Privateer Press Forum are quite thourough when it comes to disecting the rules...
