Kaya the Moonhunter

Once Kaya relied solely on her instincts. Now she has been initiated into ancient rites that reveal the power the moon exert on the blood of all predators. Her command of these mysteries has brought her a new companion in the form of a ghostly white wolf. This inseparable pair stalks the battlefields of Immoren with spell, spear, and fang to bring low the foes of the Circle Orboros.

Epic Warlock Kaya the Moonhunter & Laris come in a blister (PIP 72032). A player may field one Epic Kaya & Laris in his Circle Orboros horde.

See her in action in a battle report in the next issue of No Quarter releasing July 2nd!

Privateer Press Announces Price Increase

Consumers of metal miniatures have noticed that the price of non-ferrous metals has experienced a sharp upward trend over the last few years. At Privateer Press, we diligently monitor the cost of the metal and price our new products appropriately based on current rates.  Unfortunately, the cost of metal has skyrocketed over the past couple years. As well, rising gas prices have dramatically increased shipping costs, the repercussions of which can be seen everywhere with the general inflation that affects all of us.  As a result, we are in a position where we must increase the prices of older models in order to keep them profitable. We continue to do everything we can to combat raising prices, from purchasing more efficient equipment, buying metal in bulk, and training our staff in an effort to create a more efficient production process. You’ll be seeing some amazing and innovative ways that we’re engineering the models in the future to decrease metal usage. While these measures have mitigated the increased price of metal and have allowed us to stave off adjusting prices for a while, these efforts are unable to completely neutralize rising costs. In order to continue the production of certain items, we must adjust their MSRP to reflect the material’s current price, which constitutes the largest portion of their manufacturing cost. The graph below comes from the London Metal Exchange, displaying the rise in tin prices since January of 2003 when we first started manufacturing. ( At the time of our last price adjustment on January 1, 2007, the price of tin was about  $7.00 per pound. The current cost is approximately $11.00 per pound, an almost 50% increase in under 18 months.


We are as loathe to adjusting these prices just as you, the consumer, are to see it happen. We are currently exploring a variety of other manufacturing methods that we hope will lead towards a savings on the cost of manufacturing and the ability to stabilize prices. This includes alternative metals as well as plastic components for the model kits. In any event, commitment to quality remains our primary consideration so that no matter what material we use to manufacture, Privateer Press will continue to deliver the highest quality miniatures to you.

Effective July 1st, a significant number of the models found in the WARMACHINE and HORDES product ranges will receive an increase to their MSRP. The complete list, along with their new prices, is available here.

Privateer Press looks forward to a strong and exciting future for our hobby, and to the continued support of the many players, retailers, and distributors who have helped WARMACHINE and HORDES grow over the past five years. Thank you for your continued support. Please direct questions

All Berserkers have the roughened look of decades of service, but Drago stands out even among such company. While it has a cortex as old and unstable as any Berserker's, the passing of long years has removed many of the limited restraints that once held the machine back in battle. Mechaniks keep it chained up like a wild beast when not fighting, for Drago unleashes unmitigated violence at the slightest provocation.

Drago comes in a box (PIP 33056). A player may field one Drago in his Khador army.

Drago is featured in WARMACHINE: Legends, the next expansion to WARMACHINE, which releases this summer. Drago arrives this September.

Cankerworm attacks with a breed of cunning and sense of self-preservation that makes mockery of life. The 'jack's unprecedented ability to manipulate even the most sophisticated and complex mechanikal devices makes Cankerworm a versatile and vicious tool. It waits for the mightiest of warjacks to suffer crippling damage and springs to attack the vulnerable machine. After the final strike, Cankerworm harvests weapons and other useful machinery from the fallen construct and turns them against their former masters.

Cankerworm comes in a blister (PIP 34057). A player may field one Cankerworm in his Cryx army.

Ol' Rowdy

Ol' Rowdy has five decades of service under its chassis. It hails from the first generation of Ironclads hammered together at the Cygnaran Armory from parts manufactured at Engines East. Not until after several years fighting with distinction during the Scharde Invasions did the ornery temper that would characterize Ol' Rowdy actually come to the fore.

Ol' Rowdy comes in a box (PIP 31053). A player may field one Ol' Rowdy in his Cygnar army.

Ol' Rowdy is featured in WARMACHINE: Legends, the next expansion to WARMACHINE, which releases this summer. Ol' Rowdy arrives this September.
