WARMACHINE & HORDES Rulebooks. WARMACHINE: Prime Rules Digest · HORDES: Primal Rules Digest · New Core Rules, September So, this is bizarre to me: several models have rules specifically relating to structures, but there are no rules for structures in the core rules. The mark 3 is the current book but it is not updated with any of the latest rule changes. You can get a free copy of it in PDF from the privateer.
You'd never miss 'em, we swear. The key word here is tough. Trollblood models can take a stupid amount of punishment. Most of them are Tough as in the mechanic , on top of having ridiculous amounts of health boxes and high ARM.

They will also kick the ever-loving shit out of anything they reach in melee, because they are pissed off, drunk as shit, Scottish, and also Orks. They run forward, punch whatever they can reach, and then repeat until the enemy is a smear on the pavement. As such, they are one of the simplest armies in all of Warmahordes, and an excellent choice for new players - though they aren't entirely without their own little tricks, and can be just as rewarding for experienced warlocks.
Trollbloods have the dubious honor of being the most shit on faction fluffwise. Cygnar promised them a bunch of lands, but neglected to tell them that said land was in the way of a gigantic Skorne army. Then when they went to the king of Cygnar, Leto, to get the lands they were promised, he basically told them to fuck off. The trolls were not pleased. This, coupled with the fact that the Menite priest-kings used to enslave trollbloods for use as beasts of burdens and menial workers, has caused the leader of the Trollbloods, Chief Madrak Ironhide to unite all the warring kriels.
Picking up the cursed axe of Rathrok out of desperation, he is leading the race into a new, uncertain future, carving out their own land, and Dhunia help any pink-skinned human, elf, skorne or undead construct that dares stand in their way. Circle Orboros [ edit ] So, on the one hand you have Menoth , who is the god of mankind, order, and civilization. He's sort of a prick, but he's got the right idea On the other hand, you have the Devourer Wurm, the avatar of all that is chaos - nature, red in tooth and claw.
It knows no mercy.
It probably doesn't even understand the concept. It cares for nothing save that the cities of the world be torn down and all that is not of nature's domain be rent asunder.

This thing is so cruel that in the wars between its worshippers and Menoth's, many of the Wurm's followers converted to Menoth after losing because his treatment was actually KINDER And the Circle worships it. Sort of, some of them want to bring it back to wipe the world clean and start over from scratch, some worship the balance that it's a part of with Menoth and want to prevent it from killing everything. It's weird.
The Circle is weird. Most of the time they are too busy stabbing each other in the back for political gain to actually accomplish anything without nearly destroying the world. So, basically, you have a bunch of fucking insane druids, all of whom are assholes, running around and shanking anyone who isn't a hippie tree-hugger.
For those who cannot be shanked by normal means, they have werewolves warpwolves and kung-fu goats, along with giant golems, ents them tree things , and weird-ass Stonehenge magic.
They love terrain and messing with unit placement, making them one of the tricksiest forces in the game, as well as extremely situational - if there are a lot of forests about and your opponent isn't particularly good at dealing with them, you're golden.
If not, you're probably going to get your shit kicked in. Unless you start planting trees.
Legion of Everblight [ edit ] Remember when we mentioned that Cryx is led by the evil dragon-god Toruk, who seeks to hunt down and devour his children in order to conquer the world?
Yeah, Everblight is one of those children. And, since dragons in this setting are eldritch abominations that leak corrupting blight into everything around them, he's started up his own army in order to keep his daddy from chowing down on his bones. After he got his ass kicked in his initial fight with Toruk, he fled into the north, where he corrupted a bunch of elves, started spawning warped creatures to serve as his weapons, and found an ogre crazy enough to cut open his own fucking chest and shove Everblight's crystal-body into his heart, thus providing him with a new host body.
The Legion is, in many ways, quite similar to its Warmachine equivalent of Cryx. It is brutally fast and does incredible amounts of damage, but is not particularly durable. However, while Cryx is primarily an infantry-focused faction, the Legion loves its warbeasts. It has many of those that Hordes players would list among the best in the game. Whether at range or up close, the Legion's warbeasts will absolutely wreck whatever you point them at. Plus, they look like freaky eyeless dragon-things, and that's pretty cool.
Skorne [ edit ] A barbarian empire hailing from beyond the deserts to the east of Cygnar, which were previously thought to be so inhospitable that no one could live out there. As it turns out, this was wrong - it just means that the people living out there are crazy, sadomasochistic pain-worshipers with an insatiable thirst for blood. Think of Conan the Barbarian mixed with Hellraiser. Now they have come storming across the sands full of piss and vinegar in search of somewhere to live that sucks marginally less and they're not going to stop murdering the shit out of everyone until they get it gosh-darn it.
On the tabletop, Skorne is roughly equivalent to most newbies' idea of Khador: slow, durable, and pretty much guaranteed to crush whatever they get into melee with. Their warbeasts are brutally dangerous in close quarters, and their infantry aren't any less threatening. They're not really going anywhere fast, but if you want some Roman-style phalanx combat and an army that can take a beating and give it right back, this is your go-to.
Grymkin [ edit ] The Grymkin are the latest Hordes faction to be released and are a limited release faction similar to the Convergence. They are the myths and faerie tales of Caen given life, with various flavors of imps being their main focus. Grymkin Warlocks function differently from the standard variety by not having feats, instead they have what are called Arcana.
These arcana come in a wide range of triggered effects and abilities that are chosen before the battle begins with one Trump Arcana serving as a psuedo-feat The Grymkin are a primarily infantry based faction focusing on having troops be insanely hard to kill and then returning them to the battlefield.
Most of their models have stupid puny names Pirates? Aztec dinosaurs? Who needs them when you have aligator warriors! The Hordes equivalent of Mercenaries. Everything said there applies here, save that Minions tend to be more along the lines of kobolds, gatormen, and such. They come in two distinct flavors: The Blindwater Congregation: Voodoo gatormen who dwell in the swamps and have been slowly assimilating the other scaled races.
They have tough infantry and excel at beating up living models, but have some difficulties with high-ARM, non-living models like warjacks. They also love them some undead somethin' good, with their voodoo witchcraft and their tendency to speak in a southern drawl cajun yat.
Unlike the Trollbloods, the farrow are pig people, which is awesomely ridiculous. They have interesting warlocks with different play styles, but little variation in their forces due to a limited unit list.
And all of their warlocks can only use Farrow warbeasts. However, the War Hog which is the biggest pig around is beastly enough to do the job in nearly every occasion.
Less flexible than Blindwater as they tend to use a more direct approach. Getting into Warmahordes[ edit ] The best place to go for community thoughts on anything in Warmahordes is the WarMachine University community wiki which replaced the now decunct Battle College in It's a great starting resource for any player, whether newbie or experienced tournament contestant.
Do some reading on any faction that interests you and see what units work and what don't. Except you don't need to download them anymore, because the rulebook is free. You should also look up Privateer Press' token sets, which are very handy for keeping track of status effects, focus and fury points, and so on. Sunday World Ender starts at am. Then each team looks at the list that was placed down. Teams then match someone of their other two players to that known list.

They also handle focus very differently, with the bottom line being that Convergence 'jacks are exceptionally focus-efficient, allowing the faction to field more 'jacks than any other without breaking the bank. Khador hatched new plans of conquest. The Nightmare Empire is made up of the sweltering and Cygnar. On the other other hand, Retribution infantry are generally solid enough to make this work, and if they can't, then you still have the option of an assassination run - which the Retribution can do with incredible reliability from a frankly disgusting range.
First, the rules and stat info are final. A burned-out building that has only its exterior walls remaining might be large enough that models deep within. A number of bodies littered the sands in that direction.
