From Privateer Press:


FULL METAL COMBAT, MK II
PRIVATEER PRESS ANNOUNCES NEW EDITIONS OF WARMACHINE AND HORDES

Seattle WA. February 9, 2009—Privateer Press, Inc. is proud to announce the new Mk II edition rules for its WARMACHINE and HORDES tabletop games.

“In the past six years of WARMACHINE, the game has grown rapidly, and we feel the time has come to reevaluate and retool in preparation for the upcoming years of full metal combat. We have chosen to tighten the bolts on both the general game rules and the individual model rules to make every model as compelling as possible and to perfect the WARMACHINE experience,” stated Jason Soles, Privateer Press lead developer.

The public will get their first look at the WARMACHINE Mk II rules in April through an open field test, allowing players to become familiar with the changes while providing feedback that will assist Privateer Press in making final adjustments to WARMACHINE Mk II before going to press.

The WARMACHINE: Prime Mk II rulebook will be released to the public in early 2010. The new edition of HORDES will follow later in the year. All tournaments, leagues, and release events that make up Privateer Press organized play will adopt the new edition on its release.

More information regarding the WARMACHINE Mk II rules will be announced as it becomes available. This and other news items can be found at www.privateerpress.com and in the pages of No Quarter Magazine.

Heh. That's pretty much what the FAQ is saying. The game has suffered a huge power creep, and I for one, love all my Skorne and Cryx infantry. It'd be nice if I could take any of them I want and be competitive, rather than some "never seeing the light of day".

Also, from their FAQ, it does look like they're going to emphasize 'jacks again, like you said. One possible interpretation of their FAQ is that casters will be as dependent on their 'jacks as Warlocks are to their Beasts.

We'll see. Maybe then I'll get people to stop rolling their eyes when I break out Cryx. Smile

Well I have read through the Q&A they have for it and it looks like there will be a good deal of needed changes. First off of course point vaule changes to almost everything, so you might be seeing less of certain more used units/jacks and more of hide the idea that you even own them units/jacks. Next big thing will be changes in stats for many models that either need a boost or a nerf and once more you will end up seeing more things that never normally even hit the table. Then there is the biggest thing of all, the no more wrecked jacks. This will be a huge thing and mechanics will be fielded so much more and that may also mean that you can still hide behind a broken down jack for screening and LOS blocking. But there is only so much that I can figure given the little bit of info they have on their main page. If I can get a chance to go to one of the demos that is going to happen in April and of course looking over what they will have in NQ #23.
