    Bah. Now I got to say the unpopular thing. I knew there'd be a "But we just want the thing, it's cool man! Just do it." I was just trying to avoid the whole bit where certain things just have to be done a particular way.

    So, for realsies, they are coming as soon as they possibly can. I was trying to have fun with you all. We're just balancing a ton of things to make sure everything happens properly. We got you and I totally hear that you just want the stuff. We simply cannot produce it faster than we're producing it.

    The level of communication in this thread is amazing and I hope it's a new standard for you

    Maybe you could tell us what kind of theme forces the various factions will be getting? For example "Cryx Pirates", "Cygnar Trenchers", "Khador Warjacks" etc?

    Even invoking Colbert cannot break me. But this is correct. You are not getting these things. I got this fun book of secrets though.
    20170110_115810.jpg
    It's got a page in it, among more arcane things, that specifically states "GIVE THEM THE THEMES WHEN IT IS TIME FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE POWER THEY POSSESS" and some other scribbling of Hungerford and Pagani Hi-Fiving.

    But yeah. This kind of communication is more standard from me and some others, but I wouldn't expect it from everyone.

    Yeah, having a little spoiler on the the "theme of the Themes" would be great to pass the time and building hype while we wait for the real thing.

    Yes, whet our appetites, prime the stormchamber, stoke the furnace, feed the beast, tickle the hairy feet, and give at least the theme of the themes

    ...Are we sure this sin't just the PPS version of the book from homestuck, passed down from generation to generation to make the authors look like grand historical figures? Or, better question to find the answer to that, have Hungerford and Pagani fought over how to write it long enough to partake in the secret art of genitalia Ouija yet?

    Why yes. Yes I can.

    Cygnar is getting a theme force called "Storm Division". It will focus on Storm Knights and has a strong electric vibe.

    Skorne's theme is called "Winds of Death" and focuses on the Venator model/units. It brings a ranged list to Skorne like you have never played before!

    Legion of Everblight's theme "Ravens of War" Focuses on Legion's scout forces and faster models. Be prepared to... AMBUSH... your opponents with this list.

    Convergence of Cyriss brings a new configuration with their theme, "Destruction Initiative". This list focuses on Warjacks and Priest models, sure to be a favorite of Convergence players everywhere!

    That's all for now my friends! Thank you for your patience while we try and wrap the final documents up!

    Blightblades already Ambush. Stider scouts ambushing and threatening 24 on a walk, ignoring concealment/cover, is not fair. Nor would archers be fair with the massive CRAs. I don't want to play raiders...ambush would be good but i still hate all those wings.. Also, i was hoping against all odds to not see a flying warbeast theme. /sigh.

    But in honesty, thank you for the work. I still appreciate it.

    Ranged theme? We're gonna need that dakaar. Got a release date on that sweet model?

    The only thing I don't like about this is that there's no way we'll get both an immortal theme force AND a cataphract theme force in the one slot we have left. EDIT: Though apparently this theme force may be different from the two in the theme force book.

    In unrelated news, several Legion warbeasts are being renamed to include "Scout" in their name.

    You can join me at the waiting table. Playing some poker with the Mechanithralls to pass the time. Just watch out for the one missing his jaw - he cheats like you wouldn't believe.

    Let's start the vibe on the various faction forums! :P


    Could we also know if those are from the Command books or extras?

    I am fairly certain that the Venator theme force is not from the Skorne book and here is why: So far we've had 1 jack/beast theme force and one "core fighting force of the faction" theme force. For Skorne the latter would be Praetorians, not Venators.

    I hoped for something like the Menoth jack theme force for skorne... no theme force for me, i'm so sad right now.

    p.s.: it's not a whine, but i didn't pick up skorne to have a ranged faction. So chances are that i won't ever play it... unless i can include a mammoth and rasheth and i don't have to buy 2 units of venators since i hate duplicates.
    I'm a skorne player, as such i'm unwilling to try different models within my faction and i'm stuck at mk2 list building by definition.

    I would honestly like anything EXCEPT this. Light jack spam, improved recursion, more powerful wraiths, enhanced Satyxis, gator partisan... lots of interesting options besides trying to recreate Mk2.

    I agree and hope this is true because a) I want my Preatorian theme force b) I feel a theme force book about venators with that long wished for venator caster would be extremely nice. Let alone some more venator toys to support the combined arms lists.

    this, minus the satyxis, I would like to be able to play cryx without them and not be crippling myself.

    I wanna see a Cryx thrall theme. For me the Mechanithrall has always been their signature unit. The undead faction in the steam punk minis game are steam powered zombies...THAT IS SO COOL! I would actually be totally okay with them going back to their MK2 stats with out a point increase. I want them to be a recurring swarm that takes way more time than they are worth to kill and can still punch hard if inaccurately in melee.

    Rasheth already likes Venator Slingers and Reviers so this theme could be pretty good without double ups. My only issue is that its a bit premature with no Venator Dakaar out yet, but regardless it has potential.

    Don't forget that according to PP all of these themes should be playable with what we have now (or in the very near future).
