Runes and Rifles Upcoming Events - November

November
Champion Of The Gods

Rules: Fantasy – made to fit the event

Models Required: Club Members – Single Champion Model (any race), Non-Members – None (can be provided)

Objective: Become the Champion Of The Gods by defeating all other player’s Chaos hero models

Story: Several weeks ago you began feeling a desire to leave your tribesmen and travel into the east. As the weeks passed the compulsion grew to a point where you could no longer resist the urge. As you walk eastward away from your tribe you begin to feel a tingle of something powerful growing within you. Several days you wander towards the horizon as snow storms batter your cold skin, but something deep inside feels warm… hot even, to the point where you can’t even feel the winter around you. As you close on the mountains that used to be so distant, you notice colorful lights dancing in the sky over a desolate snow-covered ruin. You step up to the open arch of the ruin and notice several pairs of fresh snowy footsteps on the stone floor inside. Stepping through the doorway you feel a sudden burst of power explode through your veins as a voice in your head echoes “There can be only one!”

Privateer Press Events and Announcement

Privateer Press Announces New WARMACHINE FACTION

Bellevue WA. May 4, 2009 Privateer Press, Inc. is pleased to announce details on the first new faction to be introduced in its award-winning WARMACHINE tabletop miniatures game: The Retribution of Scyrah.

Releasing in September, Forces of WARMACHINE: Retribution of Scyrah will provide everything players will need to field the new faction, including model statistics, background material, and a modeling and painting guide. The book will be written for use with the upcoming new edition of game rules, WARMACHINE Mk II, which releases early 2010. Privateer Press’ bimonthly No Quarter Magazine will feature articles in issues #25 and #26 that will allow players to use their Retribution of Scyrah models with the current WARMACHINE rules.

When asked about the new faction Privateer Press Chief Creative Officer Matt Wilson said, “Retribution of Scyrah will be the first real look at the long-secluded and mysterious elven kingdom of Ios. The very first thing people should note is that these aren’t your standard tree-hugging elves.” In fact, Wilson went on to explain, the faction will include highly disciplined troops outfitted with some of the most advanced technology in the Iron Kingdoms, backed up by the never-before-seen sleek and powerful myrmidon warjacks. “The Retribution of Scyrah will bring amazing new depth and feeling to the WARMACHINE game in terms of play style and abilities,” Wilson concluded.

For more information on Retribution of Scyrah, including special previews of upcoming releases, visit www.privateerpress.com.

Monsterpocalypse Update

I spoke with Kevin at PrivateerPress today to get an update on some issues we have been having.

1> The missing prize kit (kit #3) is on it's way and we should have it by end of this week. I will distribute prizes accordingly.

2> Player Rewards (for 5 or more events) are not yet ready. Sometime within the next few weeks you will see a button after you sign in that will allow you to claim player rewards. Please be patient.

3> The March 7th I Chomp NY Preview is a teaser for the next set that comes out later in March. This is a sealed event using 1 Monster and 2 units. The cost has been lowered from $50 to $45 for all those who wish to play. The prizes and participation prizes will be only be available at this event so it's still important to participate. I have left a note and we should have plenty of product available for the event.

Thanks to everyone for being patient with us while resolving all of these issues.
