Warmachine Mk. 3 Coming June 29th

Post  Joyous_Oblivion on Mon Apr 11, 2016 1:59 pm

If anyone was looking to get into the game, your time is coming.

New Battle Boxes

That's the pics of the new starter boxes. Look to be all in one style boxes to get you playing right out of the gate.

I didn't link the PP main site as its being destroyed by heavy heavy traffic currently. The privateer press YouTube channel has a couple informative vids.

Pre-measuring is now a thing! Finally! All Warjacks are basically "Aggressive" - they get one focus for free each turn, so they dont hog your casters focus...Sweet!

What I'm reading is shaping up to make me fall hard for this game again....

Also this : Bellevue, WA, April 11, 2016 — Privateer Press has announced new editions of its award-winning WARMACHINE and HORDES tabletop miniatures games. The new editions will be released worldwide in independent hobby game stores on June 29, 2016. Privateer Press will release the new Core Rules for each game for free online on June 12, 2016. Players will get their first chance to play the new edition at Lock & Load GameFest 2016 in Bellevue, WA, held June 10-12.

And this

Primecast Notes:

MKIII has been in development for 3-4 years. Codename: Egg Roll [Insert Chinese PTSD]

What has changed? - [3:50]
- We have rebalanced every model in the game. - Jason Soles
- Each warcaster has a unique, flavorful spell/ability. Some casters already had, some had to be added.
- Doubled the point scale.
- Addresses difference between Focus and Fury.
- New Mechanics:
- Power Up = Warjack are allocated a focus for starting in the caster's battlegroup.
- Spirit Bonds: As warbeasts die, Warlocks can gain fury "from the grave"
- Upped warjack/warbeast points. 28-30 points now.
- Games are still similar sized.

Why MK III vs MK 2.5?
- "Felt like the right time."
- "MKII got to a point where it was a time to readdress [interactions and power level]."
- "Look at the whole picture."

What were some lessons from MKII?
- "Punctuated by "setting huge base models free in the wild."
- "Played huge base models conservatively in places. Push them more in places"
- Global reset of the rules. Smooth things outs.
- Rework presentation. Organization to (hopefully) make information more accessible.
- Differences in Fury and Focus are addressed (in a meaningful way)

PREMEASURING
- "It already exists, felt like a loophole."
- No more 'Gotchas'

No more Fear/Terror

Change with Huge-Base Models [15:00]
- They feel like the monsters of the battlefield like they should.

Presentation of Story [17:00]
- Time-skip! Two-year jump.
- Flash-Point. First installment in a trilogy.
- Story line stuff. Resolutions and new things.
- No favorite character is safe. Plot armor is off! [~21:00]

Lock n Load
- Pre-purchasing and distribution stations to solve line issues

New Hordes Faction [Preview - LnL 2017] [29:00]
- Unlike anything they have ever done. "Weird stuff"
- "Things you have never been able to do before."
- Built from the ground-up under MKIII rules.
- "Feels like a complete little ecosystem as a faction, interesting reason for being in existence."

Next Primecast - Change to factions

I've been playing again for about 3ish months now. Huge group of active players in the area, no need to worry about DD support to make the game work, lol. Though it is nice when one of us plays, you won't have to worry about finding a game almost any day of the week in Ottawa.

I don't know... perhaps a demo game would change my mind but I hate the look of the models.

i really didn't like the steam punk aspect of war-machine, but there is hordes which is more animal bases,

some of the newer war-machine factions look pretty cool too,

I'm ok with steam-punk / pulp sci-fi / etc.. I have issues with the proportions of everything. Like Jacks are beyond heroic scale and are more comedic*.  A lot of the humans just look wrong, like they are 1980s GW stuff. I think you are right that Hordes are much better; Trollbloods are mostly (for me decent) and the others are mix bag of stuff. And I will admit that the range is getting a lot better over time.

* though I was never into anime / mechwarrior / etc so maybe robots aren't my thing

I can bring a couple different faction battle boxes Friday if there is interest - but I'm loose on the rules, having only just started playing again recently....

Almost all the models that have been released over the last 2 years are much better sculpts. Newer factions aren't steampunk look at all either (Retribution of Scyrah/Convergence of Cyriss specifically)

Deathclock is only high level tourney play. I haven't played one game like that or even seen a game played like that since I started back. Also, tonnes of starter leagues and tourneys running all the time.

They do all organizing for Ottawa-area Warmachine on Facebook sadly. Don't really post elsewhere much.
