May 23rd, 2012 by Mad Dave Comments

Hordes Get Skorned.

A few upcoming releases from Privateer Press.

Skorne players now have a starter set to get you on the road.

From the distant east come the skorne, a race of merciless warriors bent on enslaving or destroying all before them. At Lord Tormentor Morghoul’s command, brutal cyclops savages rush forward to hew their foes with mighty two-handed falchions, while the massive titan gladiator slams into the enemy with the weight and fury of a living siege engine.

Contents: This starter box contains quick start rules and a complete battlegroup of four plastic models and corresponding stat cards for HORDES including:

Master Tormentor Morghoul Warlock

2 Cyclops Savage Light Warbeasts

Titan Gladiator Heavy Warbeast

PIP 74056

MSRP $49.99

Skorne Titan Cannonneer/Gladiator/Sentry.

The Titan is the main Warbeast of Skornewith excess to a range of weapons to suit various battle field rolls.

Favored warbeasts of the skorne, the versatile titans can be conditioned and equipped for a variety of battlefield roles. The titan gladiator is armed with massive spiked war gauntlets and uses its weapons and its armored body to pulverize enemy troops and warbeasts. The titan cannoneer is a mobile siege engine, blasting apart enemy formations with its gargantuan siege cannon. Finally, the titan sentry is a living wall, immovable and nearly impervious to enemy attacks behind its heavy shield and thick armor. 

PIP 74057

MSRP $34.99

Skorne Cyclops Raider (plastic)

The cyclops raider is a terrifying sight—an eight-foot-tall brute capable of unleashing torrents of razor-sharp steel. The few who survive the excruciating hail of the raider’s heavy reiver are dispatched by crushing blows of its spiked gauntlets. The raider’s proficiency at arms is greatly enhanced by its natural prescient abilities. It can train its weapon on even the best-hidden enemies and annihilate them in a burst of fire before they have time to react.

PIP 74060

MSRP $18.99

Skorne Siege Animantarax

The Skorne Siege Animanterax is an almost unstoppable beast of destruction.

Lumbering inexorably across the battlefield, animantaraxes are living siege engines. The ornate houdaas atop their backs bristle with veteran crews of Praetorians wielding spears and Venators manning double-combed reiver guns. Incoming fire serves only to enrage these giant beasts, and their handlers gladly indulge their anger and watch with grim satisfaction as the behemoths smash through their foes and deliver death to everything within reach.

PIP 74064

MSRP $94.99

I'm Mad Dave one of the team's growing collection of tabletop gaming nerds. I was raised on a healthy diet of TV like Blake 7, Doctor Who and Star Trek with a side of sword and sorcery / sc-fi movies and a large dollop of board games like Cluedo, RISK and Hero Quest. You know your a gaming nerd if: You bring toy soldiers to work? You bring toy soldiers to work and you work has nothing to do with toy soldiers? Most of you jackets / coats have dice in one of the pockets? You hate throwing away packaging because you know it's actually a ruined building or field generator? You have a collection of old packaging? You can find something relevant to your hobby i.e. books, magazines, figures etc in almost every room in your house? I no I'm a nerd because I've done all of the above, how many of these made you smile and nod yes to?
