New Privateer Press releases for Dec 11th, 2014

The Sentry Box has received the following new boxed sets and figures for Warmachine and Hordes.

Trollkin Highwaymen

As war has consumed the trollkin people, even outlaws and bandits among them have taken up arms in defense of kith and kriel. Peerless woodsmen and hunters, these highwaymen blend easily into forests and swamps. They strike from the shadows, unleashing withering pistol fire from a distance before closing to finish the job at point-blank range.

Praetorian Karax

The proud Praetorian karax form imposing phalanxes of interlocking shields to impale closing enemies, sweep aside all incoming blows, and protect themselves and those behind them from explosive blasts. Endless training in unit tactics removes all trace of individual initiative and allows karax to advance resolutely into even the most fearsome artillery barrage as shrapnel and fire wash harmlessly over their shields.

Maximus solo

Maximus’ legend as a warlord was already on the rise when he and his warband came upon a group of Greylords and their doom reaver slaves. Though his warband was slain, Maximus fought on. When his weapon splintered, he snatched up a fellblade from one of the fallen. The magic of the Orgoth weapon took hold, heightening his rage and giving him the maddened resolve to hack down his remaining foes in seconds. Maximus is now consumed by hatred and driven to slaughter. He occupies a place somewhere between awe and terror among his own kind, a gore-splattered hero whose legend grows with each gruesome kill.

Cygnar Dynamo Warjack

Having been rebuilt nearly from scratch by Sebastian Nemo after serving years on the front lines as a Stormclad, Dynamo represents a tremendous advancement in voltaic warjack technology. Powered by its galvanic generator, Dynamo is outfitted to render electrical destruction via its devastating firestorm cannon. This weapon fires deadly bolts of lightning that can strike clusters of advancing soldiers or be concentrated to melt heavy armor to slag. Thanks to Dynamo’s ability to harness and channel its own kinetic energy, each attack it unleashes is deadlier than the last.
