Privateer Press Launches New Trencher Theme Force Expansion

October 11, 2017

Bellevue, WA — Privateer Press is releasing its first-ever theme force for WARMACHINE and HORDE. Theme forces are armies designed around specific military roles and allow players to field armies with a unified aesthetic and rules that are designed to work together well on the tabletop.

The Trenchers Theme Force expands the primary infantry of the Cygnar Faction and features 10 new models for the Faction, including all-new Trencher Long Gunners, Combat Engineers, and the first playable structure model in WARMACHINE, the Block House. Additionally, the new Trencher Army Theme Box features Commander Anson Hitch and the new Patrol Dog. Combined with the currently available Cygnar Battlegroup starter box, the theme box allows players to field a complete 35-point trencher army.

“Like never before, theme forces delve into the iconic military roles of the Factions in WARMACHINE and HORDES,” Chief Creative Officer Matt Wilson said. “With a selection of new models augmenting the existing models in each Faction, the theme forces feel like brand-new armies unto themselves, making what was old new again and ensuring the WARMACHINE and HORDES play environment is always fresh and exciting for our existing players as well as for new players joining our community.”

The limited-edition Trencher Army Box is available for $109.99 MSRP and contains an eight-page Trencher Primer, which introduces players to the “Gravedigger” theme force background and rules.

Theme Forces are being further supported in the all-new No Quarter Prime magazine, launching ahead of the Trencher Theme Force in September. Each issue of No Quarter Prime will include an extensive feature covering in depth the history and combat methods of the theme force releasing around the same time. The theme force feature also includes the rules for the theme force, all-new scenarios and game-modifying rules inspired by the theme force, and a squad list allowing players to play the theme in the upcoming Company of Iron skirmish rules for WARMACHINE and HORDES, also releasing in October.

The Trencher models and army box are available now from Privateer Press and local game stores.
