Warmachine is Privateer Press' game of steam powered combat in the Iron Kingdoms. Warcasters lead giant constructs to vie for control of the land. Can you lead your kingdom to victory?

Each caster has a special power known as a feat, a spell or ability of enourmous power. If cast at the right time, they can be critical to achieving victory. A game of Warmachine ends when you kill your opponent's caster. This being said, there is more to victory than killing a caster. Players score points by completing specific objectives, such as having models near the center of the board. All of these rules are designed to encourage aggresive play.

There are seven factions in Warmachine:

  • Cygnar
  • Khador
  • Protectorate of Menoth
  • Cryx
  • Retribution of Scyrah
  • Convergence of Cyriss
  • Mercenaries including Cephalix
