    Default Cmon PP, get those theme forces out!

    Cancon is coming increasingly soon and I would really like to see the themes before it hits so I could have time to practice.

    Please?

    Dwarf theme is in the next issue. So CoC has to wait. Which shoots down the "Everyone will have a theme by Jan."

    Thanks so much for your responses, guys. Really want to see if themes push out one of my lists.

    Happy for the CanCon-goers, but happier still about the sort of normalization of the game we can hopefully expect with the release of these themes. Any step towards things becoming more representative of a "matured" Mk III is welcome.

    I'm hoping and praying for a good Winter Guard theme... I want so very much to have a good reason to put two full units of WGI and WGRC on the table at once.

    It really does have to be either Banes or ghost pirates, and probably the pirates, because Banes don't have enough thematic solos. I don't think McThralls can really carry a theme. Maybe they could do a generic undead thing?

    Can you confirm this? Is there a source? I would absolutely love it if it came in the next issue, but I don't want to get my hopes up from a rumour. You understand, right? Thanks.
    Mercenaries are fine as is... it is the bulk of the player base that needs the errata.

    Convergence isn't in the NQ, they're in the doc with all the other themes being released online.

    Next NQ issue is in fact Rhulic hotness (I think ). However, the upcoming Theme Force bundle that is dropping will include Convergence (which is a change from what I originally had said on Primecast). We decided to move the Convergence drop from NQ to this bundle, giving Cyriss players a theme sooner than later.

    May I ask what the reasons were for picking the Theme Forces that you have to show early?

    Are they generally more battlegroup focused? Are they focusing on lesser used units? Was it a fluff choice, a gut choice or a design choice?

    It was generally theme forces that had enough of a model selection that they were viable to come out earlier than their book release. Remember that each theme force book also includes new models made with that theme force in mind, so some theme forces weren't right for this early bundle as the models that really made the theme come together wouldn't be out for a while.

    So, for example, say we were going to do a ... Idrian based theme force book in the future (not saying we are, just as an example). That would have been a theme force we wouldn't have chosen for this bundle because there really isn't enough stuff out RIGHT NOW to make that a compelling early offer.

    So this means models will at least traditionally speaking come out Before a theme force rather than after is that correct? Or is it not mutually exclusive meaning some theme forces will go up in value as models get released?

    That's the way I read it, the question is... Protectorate or Mercs? Hmmmmm...

    Can we get an official answer on if they're the theme forces that are featured in the Command Books?

    I've seen it posted both ways on the forums, but not from a PP staffer, so official comment would be greatly appreciated.

    What I understand, the Theme force books will have 2-5 new models in that will round out the theme force options.

    So in the idrian example, there might be:

    Idrian Trackers Unit
    Idrian Character Solo Reclaimer
    New Idrian Warcaster
    Epic Idrian Warcaster
    A character jack

    I'd expect these to all be released over a few months near the same time. They would be useful for Mercs or Menoth usually too, and will be combined with existing models to make a great new theme force (or perhaps 2 in one book?)

    Other things might be less new models (though I think they might put some more out than 2)
    .
    New Pirate jack
    Epic Shae


    The command books are coming along with 2-4 new models it seems. The reworking of the books to not have the model stats in is a change in policy though. Looks like the release schedule is still going to be be theme based - which sounds good to me. The release schedule we've had over the last 6 months and the next few months planned - does seem to support most of the game quite well. (I buy select Menoth, legion and Merc releases and I've been persuaded to pick up a few of the new things - even though I hardly play anything buy legion.) I'm hopeful it will stay good.

    So my theory was correct. The problem is, this means no Banes theme, as there are not yet enough solos that would make sense for it. /sadpanda

    Any chance you guys can give a brief description of the ones you did choose? Or at least Cryx, as that is probably the one the most people are most worried about?

    I think maybe a Gun Mage theme for Cygnar, the reason being we have the Thorn Gun Mages coming out in February, and I reckon they will count as Cygnar Partisan for the theme force.

    I asked about it but no answer yet. I think we won't have one next week. I understand, too much news for us last year...
