Forces of Distinction III is, obviously, the 3rd installment in a series of articles that explore theme forces for Warmachine and Hordes. I am big fan of theme forces in every game I play, so I was really looking forward to this piece. The two forces presented are quite interesting. Both are shaped by personality and have a place in the history and setting of the Privateer Press games. I may be a stranger to the universe these games are set in, but I was able to slide right into it with this article.

I have to say, if I was going to start playing Warmachine, I would take a hard look at what these armies have to offer. Guts and Gears is a deconstruction of a specific character or warmachine, something I can definitely get behind. I enjoy detailed articles covering one particular aspect of a miniature. That this edition covers an armored steampunk pig man, the War Hog, has me chomping at the bit. The history of the War Hog in the Warmachine world gets several pages.

There is also a piece on in-game tactics for using the fantastic War Hog miniature.

There is a painting piece which is my introduction to the Privateer Press painting technique. Their miniatures look very good and the high-contrast paint schemes the house painters favor does wonders for the sculpts. I would buy the blow-up picture of the War Hog as a poster in a heartbeat.

Shattered Grounds: Rotterhorn is the organized Warmachine league and several pages of printable cards for it are included. Since I know neither the rules nor the league, there is not much I can add about these. Covering the techniques for painting a coherent large army, this is one of the best hobby articles I have seen in a long time. Using only 15 paints, three of which are spray primers, Matt does a great job demonstrating the techniques necessary to make a large army look good on the table.

Just the trick of using rust colored spray paint over black primer to create highlighting is an amazing trick, one that I will be stealing. The results are both beautiful and attainable, inspiring me to pick my brush back up after a rough day of painting. The bulk of the issue is consumed by the Unbound article. As a non-player, I was still able to decode the gist of the rules, though I cannot comment on the quality of them.

What I can comment on is the accompanying photography of huge battles.

If there is a better advertisement for the Warmachine line and playing a game with the Unbound rules, I cannot imagine it. There is something entrancing about large scale engagements and the photos do a great job capturing that energy.

Power Progression: Circle Orboros covers the Celtic inspired force.

Summary execution

I cannot think of a similar army in any other game and I am entranced by the models. They have a stony, earthy aesthetic that looks good on the table and makes me want to see some in person. While I could not make heads nor tails of the article, because of my ignorance of the rules, it was inspiring and gave me a hint what is going on with Warmachine. The digital app goes some ways to fixing it as it contains all the NQ but it's still missing some stuff like the classic RPG books I'd love to read the Witchfire Trilogy and things like the Pirates of the Broken Coast book.

Also, Prime, Primal and the remix books are missing from the digital app. I Could torrent these but PP, I wanna give you money instead! Come on PP, please. I wanna read this stuff. Maybe we can get a update on the list?

Their independent nature has often made those these barbarous tribes, and there were some isolated cases in living in the fringes ill suited for regular service. Kossites and which troops refused to fight, or conveniently failed to show members of other remote groups have been permitted to serve in their normal zeal for combat. Allegations of Devourer worship a different capacity. Their aptitude at woodcraft and stalking prey flared up during this time as well.

Some of these accusations developed through years of hunting makes them ideal ambush were true, but many were driven by the perception that there forces. Such woodsmen can move unhindered through terrain was little difference between these rustic soldiers and the tribes that would slow normal troops, penetrating deep into enemy they were tasked to put down.

Skirov hillmen, Ruscar scouts, and other groups drawn from The distinction between these people and the proud the far-flung peoples of Khador also support traditional descendants of Kos wasnt always clear to southern Khards forces throughout the empire.

The Kossites are the largest and living in major cities like Korsk and Khardov. Despite this, most predominant group, and enjoy a prestigious history of they were instrumental in taking many territories.

Eventually, unorthodox fighting on behalf of the Motherland. Rather a time of increasingly unpopular war. They make use of Through the Hundred Year Peace, many Kossites and other rifles, bows, axes, and other weapons common to defending rustic peoples returned to their wilderness homes and only families in these rustic regions or frequently found among participated in infrequent service.

They armed as required to their former professions.

Being drawn from such disparate serve as guides to military patrols in nearby areas or when sources, each unit is highly affected by its local culture and remote townships were endangered by trollkin, Nyss, or other can vary wildly in appearance, training, and equipment. During this time, only a few Irregulars do not have common uniforms, tending to receive thousand irregulars served alongside regular soldiers at the relatively little in the way of standard military supplies.

Those who Indeed, it is one of the advantages of the Kossite irregulars did were usually drawn from Kossites and other tribes living that they can feed themselves off the land, easing the burden closest to major cities or those who had weathered poor harvest on whatever formal military force they accompany.

Rather than sending every son of age to serve, these families Integrated with the rest of the Khadoran Army, they become a would only send the third or fourth sons they could not easily powerful weapon. Despite the ultimate failure of this Khadoran culture, and it has never been difficult to find war for Khador, the unusual tactics employed during this soldiers, even among the distant rural areas.

Compulsory conflict were important in forging an identity for the Kossite military conscription for all Khadoran men of age was troops. They had never previously been asked to be part of formalized in AR as part of King Levashs preparations such a massive infantry force, and their scouting skills were for what would become the Colossal War, but there was little invaluable in preparing the way through the Thornwood resistance to the idea.

Apparently, the contest was to encountered along the way.

When I asked the nearest sergeant why his men were stripping naked and diving A shadowy war between the Kossites and Cygnaran rangers into a frozen lake, he looked at me as if I were a fool and simply said, was waged beneath the canopy of the Thornwood in these So they dont get their armor wet. Though the southerners managed to lead Khadoran forces into difficulty time and again, many more northern In AR during the Llaelese War, manhunters also rose to lives would have been lost without the aid of the irregulars.

Such individuals also serve among the The demands on Kossites were many, as they were asked to irregulars, though they occupy a slightly more specialized role. While the southerners more compensation for their service than their counterparts. Many of the most renowned manhunters are also from Kossite villages, where a life of hunting and trapping In the winter campaign of AR during the Llaelese War, far from civilization is common.

Only the Skirov of Khadors the hardy men of the northwest forest proved invaluable.

As one kovnik of that campaign put in In the bitter months of winter marking the outset of the invasion his report to the High Kommand; into Llael, supplies and shelter were difficult to maintain. Fierce storms battered both armies. The manhunters drew from their These Kossites are mad. While seasoned Winter Guard grumble experience in woodcraft and trapping to keep the troops fed about the cold, the irregulars seem happiest in it.

When en route to and sheltered. Once battle was joined, manhunters mounted the front, we had marched all day through a blizzard and were camped numerous surprise attacks on the Llaelese troops during bitter for the night by a frozen lake. The troops were in ill spirit and nearly snowstorms. Being unaccustomed to warfare under such harsh mutinous. I was informed that a gathering of irregulars was causing conditions, the defenders fell in droves beneath the manhunters much uproar, and, preparing to have to break up some drunken brawl, whirling axes.

Such attacks gained Khadoran forces much- I trudged to their part of the camp through knee-deep snow.

When I needed time to draw up ranks and prepare for extended fighting. Their nearest garrison town, training and drilling there for a few bravery against terrifying Cryxian forces was noted by several months, then being sent home again to await the call should in the High Kommand.

By this time, the Khadoran woodsmen they be required in service of the empire. That a way that let them truly challenge and sometimes exceed said, the very value of these forces is that the skills they have their Cygnaran Reconnaissance Service adversaries. Kossite developed may come from many years of day-to-day hunting irregulars also worked closely alongside Widowmaker snipers and tracking to keep their families fed.

Many Kossites have in this conflict. All the enemies of hostile conditions. Khador know to be wary of their sudden raids, lest the lives Left to their own devices, irregulars rely on guerilla tactics, and materiel of trained soldiers be lost in a hail of arrows and operating in smaller bands and striking rapidly at the enemy musket fire loosed from the shadows of a darkened grove.

They prefer to avoid Organization and Training protracted skirmishes whenever possible, a trait that can Historically, irregulars have been poorly equipped compared lead to regular soldiers considering them cowardly and to most Khadoran forces.

For decades they were considered undependable. Their armament is suited to these tactics.

Their little more than backwoods peasants, good primarily as armor tends to be lightsometimes little more than thick cannon fodder. The truth was, even once their skills began animal skins or winter coats. Clothing is chosen to provide to be valued, kommanders appreciated being freed of the warmth and the ability to blend into the environment more necessity of arming these forces, as did those in charge of than with the expectation of turning aside weapons.

Units military payroll and supplies. Manhunters are known While some kapitans still share a dismissive attitude toward for considerable proficiency with their woodsman axes, but these forces, this prejudice has steadily shifted to give way to among the other Kossite troops, hand axes and short blades, respect.

Despite the industrialization of the modern Khadoran already on hand as tools, are popular as weapons of choice. This has actually become something of a As irregulars are drawn primarily from outlying villages, they proud tradition among the Kossites themselves.

Many prefer often come to battle with strong bonds that are distinct from to fight with weapons and tactics passed down through family the unity that the army builds in basic training. Often several and village, even were uniform armaments and training siblings, cousins, or friends will enlist at the same time, and the available to them.

These bonds promote strong internal loyalty, which can see a unit There are always fewer resources available for irregular troops through adversity. The downside of this, however, is that these than for traditional soldiers. Many of them receive relatively irregulars will sometimes act on their own initiative, regardless little formal training before being sent to the front lines.

The majority of them are not full-time soldiers and are only briefly supervised by army inspectors to ensure they have Along with having reputations tainted by a lack of discipline, the semblance of a chain of command with a leader who will there are also sometimes reputed to be superstitious and to reliably answer to Khadoran Army officers. In most areas, follow unsavory religious beliefs.

Such rumors are not always spurious, as the communities from which the irregulars hail may well include dangerous cults of the Devourer Wurm, often in the guise of totemic animal worship. Even when a community is not actively worshiping their Wurm, they may practice rituals and customs including ancestor worship, which is off-putting to traditional Morrowans and Menites.

Therefore, fellow soldiers distrust many Kossite troops, which further encourages segregation between regular and irregular forces. This makes integrating the Kossites into a larger army difficult and contributes to the preference of some kapitans and kovniks to use them incautiously as cannon fodder, sending them into needless peril. This goes along with a tendency for officers to underestimate the Kossites under their command.

These are usually trappers, hunters, or loggers whose skills have been honed by spending much of their time in the harsh northern wilds in pursuit of their trade. Many such individuals are hired into the Khadoran military as manhunters. Acting as a mixture of scout and hired assassin, they are the most terrifying irregulars in Khadors employ. The double axes that have served as tools of woodcraft and deadly weapons for millennia are a symbol of this brother and sisterhood and are part of the mythos that defines them.

Some are known to whisper prayers to the axes themselves, and these practices, though uncomfortably close to certain Devourer rituals, are tolerated by commanding officers due to YURI the deadly utility of maintaining manhunters in a force. Before an engagement they are The infamous man known as Yuri the Axe has a murky early stealthy, moving cautiously and silently as they await the history, and the barbarous warrior is not inclined to offer any perfect opportunity to engage an unsuspecting enemy.

When details. The earliest reports of him are of infrequent appearances advancing they are fearless, sometimes making loud jests about at villages and outposts near Uldenfrost and Tverkutsk. As a how weak and pathetic the enemy forces are in comparison youth, Yuri traded pelts of winter argus and other dangerous to some wild beast they bested in combat.

Others mimic wild creatures for food, drink, and medicine. He turned to hunting animal calls to unsettle the men they are about to murder. Most men in short order, earning a living as a bounty hunter and frightening of all are the silent hunters, who dispassionately hired killer, eliminating undesirables and even rogue Winter cut down their targets without a single noise.

In battle, manhunters are sturdy, shrugging off many attacks that would disable lesser men, hacking through armored foes Such actions did not escape the notice of the military; following with brutal ease, able to claim a hefty toll of the dead. Most often, a lengthy hunt involving hundreds of soldiers and hired agents, manhunters are given special assignments to eliminate specific in which Yuri more than once escaped captivity, he was given enemy officers or other critical personnel or to patrol alongside the chance to join forces with the Khadoran Army, gaining other skilled woodsmen in countering similar experts among amnesty for a litany of murders.

Reports also confirm that at least 16 ships from the ghost fleet were present and disgorged landing parties to serve as the vanguard of the Cryxian ground assault alongside their living counterparts. All other naval facilities should be placed on high alert.
