Privateer Press will be bringing a fast paced, skirmish game for the WARMACHINE and HORDES universe in October. Let’s take a look!
Company of Iron is a miniatures game that centers around squad based combat. It essentially reinvents WARMACHINE and HORDES battles into smaller confrontations. Such battles are played with 10-15 miniatures total and most of the existing miniatures in the WARMACHINE and HORDES product lines are compatible. Rules have been streamlined and do not include warcasters or warlocks, but do include light warjacks and warbeasts.
Company of Iron is designed for two players and contains two 20 point armies, including a unit of Cygnar Stormblades and a unit of Minion Farrow Brigands. Additionally, two all-new character solos will be included to lead their respective units: Lieutenant Gwen Keller and Agata, Queen of Carnage. These new models can be used in both Company of Iron and in WARMACHINE and HORDES.
The box set contains all the tokens, rules, and cards that will allow players to choose specialties for their squad leaders and battle plans. Company of Iron emphasizes fast-paced, skirmish combat that focuses on small squads and solos. Players will take turns activating one model at a time as opposed to the standard alternating activation cycle.
Company of Iron Starter: $74.99
