  • New Style of WARMACHINE & HORDES Leagues Start

Previously, Organized Play narrative leagues were yearlong events, typically separated into four seasons with each season lasting for a month. While this approach allowed us to do some really cool stuff there were some drawbacks. Going forward, all narrative leagues are now self-contained, one-month events. Some of these stories might relate to each other in some manner, but they won’t be sequentially connected anymore. This means if you’re interested in participating in a narrative league, you can now jump into whichever league is the current one, even if you have no previous experience! The first of these stories begins this month.
