    Pffft, nerds.

    As for Skorne, ''it's done when it's done''? I mean...you want it done properly right?

    Yar, but we're in this position because Skorne wasn't done properly (you could argue that's been the case since the end of MK1).

    I also grant my permission, but if you guys release it at the 13th I would love it as a birthday gift.

    Look at the cryx anti-gunline update. You do NOT want a Skorne update like that. Give them time, perhaps they will make something out of it.

    Well the changes themselves have been locked in for some time now so the quality of the rules changes themselves would not be impacted. And while I wish they'd just release the damn thing I totally see why they don't. There's just too much PR that hinges on the release of this pdf. They need to ensure the release goes as smooth as possible with Release Notes and Q+A.

    Perhaps you should stare into the mirror and chant "Cygnar OP!" 10 times.

    It might help.

    Oh, you all thought it was released in 2017.

    It was a misprint, the Skorne Errata is coming in 2071.

    Yeah, i'm really eager to see the Skorne update. I have a feeling it will be later in the month as i think the staff is only just today filtering back into the office for the most part, but definitely can't wait to see New Skorne.

    I know of a tournament that will be mighty awkward if the errata drop before sunday . Bonus point if it's between thursday and sunday.

    I still can't wait for it. I sort of think it will be very different from the spoil, but we will see.

    To be fair, we got the other errata a month early (which was a wonderful holiday surprise!).
    I do the hobbies! All glory to the hobby gods! (for those interested in Pathfinder, Eberron, Warmachine/Hordes please take a look at my blog 4d6kobolds!)

    I wrote some quick reference docs for Warmachine mkIII.

    The Cygnar errata certainly was a holiday surprise. I'm running out of shelf space

    Really hoping for Friday, so I can go into a tournament blind.

    But... but... there's already been #3YearsPlaytesting!

    Sorry, couldn't resist, but sadly, if the Skorne changes aren't good by now, a couple more weeks of finalizing the changes won't help now.

    Nothing new to discuss just yet beyond a lot of the info y'all already know. It's a big BIG update, and I gotta say y'all, I honestly think you're going to be really pleased with the outcome. We know the importance of nailing this, and a ton of work has been put in to make sure that the end result of Skorne is something you're going to want to play for years.

    That aside, I know you wanted a spoiler so ummmm ... well. I don't have one to give you. How about this? Have you ever seen the original Dominar Rasheth concept art, with him standing up? It's pretty freaking awesome if you ask me, I feel like if he ever got off his butt and wanted to go hand to hand with someone he'd hundred-hand-slap their face clean off.

    That's actually a very cool concept art. He look ... different. More threatening. It's the Rasheth who is contraried and will make sure you don't stand in his way again.

    He also look a lot like a willbreaker that way. I had never considered that Rasheth is basically a willbreaker in warlock form.

    Reporting from the state of WarmaHordes in 2071, I can say this is entirely true. The Skorne errata just dropped, and it was totally worth the wait.

    Sure, some people say it's strange that the bases of the Skorne army didn't change at all from the initial Mk3 release, even after three-and-a-half more edition changes, but we know Privateer Press just wanted to take their time getting it right.

    Be interesting to see how it faces up against the current meta boogeymen, though. I think they'll struggle against Haley+Deneghra7, especially with Cygnar, but they're kind of OP anyway (the whole two-opposing-souls-in-one-body thing is cool in the fiction but the tabletop realization is a bit wonky), but they should have game into any version of Durst, Rawhead3, and most of the Orgoth leaders.

    Personally, I'm planning on bringing Thagrosh4 (if I can assemble the damn model) and Caeldrynn2 with as many Malakhim and Hellhooks as possible. For Convergence I'll bring Aleph1 with a pair of PDMs to bombard them with servitors from a safe distance and /0 for the finishing blow, and I'll see if I can find all of the drones for Aurora3 and bring her with Clockwork Heralds, Divisors and the Trivium to screw up their buffs and hit-and-run for days.

    Hes actually on a 120 base on a 50mm base on a 40 mm base on a 30mm base. Being our first dragoon battle engine caster with a recursive effect through his ability anthac revival has really changed the game. Its hard enough chewing through 40 boxes through the 4 forms, especially with the loss of greivous wounds way back in 2016. On the plus side the battlemage hover cav were just spoiled!

    You're thinking of Thagrosh3. Thagrosh4 is after he's had most of the Athanc taken out and implanted into Kallus because he was this close to exploding into a mass of tentacles and mouths. Thags4 is just a really fiddly model because the remains of his wings are so spindly you practically need to pin every single bone or they snap off in the carry case. At least the overhang is all at the back of the model, unlike bloody Kryssa2 who keeps falling over because her fire is too heavy. I had to glue a strip of lead to the underside of the base.

    Much as I'm still not 100% a fan of Cygnar, I like the new hover-stuff. It was stepping on the Convergence's toes a bit (ok, a lot) when it started, but PP have done a really good job of drawing a clear dividing line between the factions. Cygnar are the science-tech-and-electricity faction, while the Convergence aren't so much developing technology as they are skipping over the entire R&D portion of things and going straight to the singularity by copying the designs of a planet-sized supercomputer that got there first. Cygnar saw a screw and built an better screwdriver, the Convergence downloaded the design for a magnetohydrodynamic transfixion unit percussor and then decided that everything looks like a nail. Which is why Cygnar have lightning guns and hoverboards, and the Convergence have clockwork replicator swarms that eat their own models if you're not careful and a light artillery piece that moves the terrain. Cygnar stuff just works, Convergence stuff requires you to get a bunch of oddly-shaped pieces lined up just right and then wrecks face like nothing else.

    I'm not going to lie, I read tentacles as testicles and it made the whole thing sound nasty.

    I played Skorne in MK1 and sold them off at the start of MK2.

    I want to jump back in for MK3 because I am a glutton for punishment (note: I was planning this even before errata announced, but now I am waiting).

    Release the damn thing already! Or at least give me my damn Man o War theme to hold me over.

    So, we figured it would be fun to give you something a fair bit early due to...reasons. (You know who you are. YOU KNOW!)

    Here's the Skorne Command book Cover:
