New from Artana Games! Tesla vs. Edison: War of Currents and The New Science!

Coming Soon!
Tesla vs. Edison: War of Currents
$60.00 SRP

Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, and three other important inventors of the time struggle to determine who will be most remembered as the man who brought light to the masses. In running your electric company you are both a starry-eyed inventor and a ruthless businessman. You feel pride in bringing electricity to the masses and developing miraculous new technologies, even as you file patents, engage in a propaganda war, and roll up your sleeves in the stock market. Balancing both sides of an inventor’s enterprise is required to achieve your victory.

You control a start-up company in the early days of the U.S. electric industry. In the beginning you only have your lead inventor, some shares of preferred stock, and some money. Over the course of the game you will be hiring other famous technicians and business people to work for you. Each luminary in the game has their own unique ratings, and the inventors also have their own special abilities.

The actions that you allocate this team of exceptional historical figures to take will determine the fate of your company. There are four focuses in the game: claiming electric projects on the map, advancing up a tech tree, investing in public relations to improve public opinion of your company or the technologies it uses, and buying and selling stock on a dynamic market. You will need to pay attention to all of them but can win the game by specializing in just a specific one or two of your choice, or trying to build a more balanced company. The path you take is up to you.

Money is tight and players may need to sell shares of their company in order to do everything they need to succeed. But be careful: other companies can buy stock you release, and the winner is the player whose company’s stock is worth the most at the end of the game!

The New Science
$50.00 SRP

You are one of the five finest scientific minds of their time: Isaac Newton, the prodigy. Galileo Galilei, the visionary. Johannes Kepler, the stargazer. Gottfried Leibniz, the polymath. Athanasius Kircher, the prolific. Your goal is to be recognized and remembered as the finest scientific mind of your time. To achieve this you will need to be the first to publish on important innovations, as well as hobnob with well-connected people. It’s all about gaining prestige.

The New Science is a game of planning where five different branches of science are represented, but there are limited innovations available to publish. Each innovation has a requirement for its research, experimentation, and finally publishing. Additionally, in order to publish, you must meet a minimum level of influence with the government, clergy, free enterprisers, or the rest of the scientific community. Along the way you might get distracted by some exciting happenings that offer great benefits or worrying threats. Through it all you’ve got to figure out how you can be the first to publish and, in science, whoever publishes first, wins.

D&D Fantasy: Icons of the Realms: Set 3: Rage of Demons Booster Brick (8)
$127.92 SRP

Rumors of demonic activity in the Underdark have reached the surface through whispers and hushed tales of violence. King Bruenor sends his friend Drizzt Do’Urden to find out what’s happening beneath the surface but it becomes all too clear when the demon lord Demogorgon ravages the drow city of Menzobarranzan. The Horned Lord Baphomet toys with victims in the vast maze of the Underdark and the Demon Queen of Fungi Zuggtmoy plans to join with a massive city-sized fungus in an insane marriage ceremony. Yeenoghu, the Demon Lord of Gnolls, wanders the dark, spawning new gnoll servants from his kills to continue the destruction, while the demon lords of lust and deception prey on the weak-willed peoples of the Underdark.

In the madness of the dark, who will be the light to shine against the demons? The races of the deep vie against the demons but there are few allies in the Underdark among drow, mindflayers, duergar and deep gnomes. Drizzt Do’Urden and the magical panther Guenhwyvar are dedicated to tracking Demogorgon and putting a stop to his reign of madness but it’s even more crucial to find out why the demon lords came out of the Abyss at all. Who is responsible for the chaos that’s been unleashed? Solve the mystery before the demons reach the surface. Dare to descend!

New October products from Privateer Press!

Coming in October!
Warmachine: Cryx: Deneghra, the Soul Weaver: Epic Cavalry Battle Engine Warcaster
$69.99 SRP

Deneghra, the Soul Weaver takes to the skies to terrorize her foes. Atop her nightmarish winged necromechanikal mount she blots out the sun, casting a long shadow over those destined to die by her command. She gathers the souls of those slain in her presence, twisting them to her malevolent will. Such is her mastery that she can send these tormented spirits to empower her machines or tear their essence apart to weave a torrent of withering magic.

Deneghra, the Soul Weaver comes in a box (PIP 34105). A player may field one Deneghra, the Soul Weaver in a Cryx army.

1 Deneghra, the Soul Weaver
2 Color stat cards

All miniatures are supplied unpainted and assembly may be required.
Warmachine: Cryx: Soul Trapper: Thrall Solos (2)
$19.99 SRP

Drawn to the dying, the soul trapper stalks the front lines with both eagerness and desperation. Its arms continually wrest souls of the recently departed from the air, limbs darting here and there like the workings of a manic threshing machine. It crams its stolen harvest into prepared chambers akin to soul cages within its body, where they await transference to other, mightier entities. It is said the screams of the souls transferred through the creation’s chest can be heard echoing from its ribcage long after they have gone, though few mortals have ever gotten close enough to hear.

Soul Trapper solos come with two in a blister (PIP 34123). A player may field up to three pairs of Soul Trappers for each warcaster in a Cryx army.

2 Soul Trappers
1 Color stat card
Warmachine: Mercenary: Cognifex Cyphon: Cephalyx Warcaster
$27.99 SRP

Cyphon is the premier cognifex of the Thornwood cephalyx hive, devoted to the systematic dismantling of intractable minds. Risen from the chthonic tunnels beneath the forest, Cyphon floats silently through the trees, a telepathic predator seeking its quarry. Subjects forced to endure Cyphon’s art are reduced to hollow-eyed shells, their minds destroyed by unrelenting waves of suffering. Cognifexes typically operate within the cloistered and antiseptic cells of a cephalyx hive, but Cyphon’s work does not afford him such luxury. Commanding a force of drudges and monstrosities, Cyphon sweeps through the ranks of potential subjects, constantly probing for anyone who might hold secrets useful either to his hive or to his own work.

Cognifex Cyphon comes in a blister (PIP 41126). A player may field one Cognifex Cyphon in a Cryx army or Cephalyx Mercenary contract army.

Warmachine: Mercenary: Swamp Gobber River Raiders: Minion Privateer Sea Dog Solos (3)
$15.99 SRP

Although many gobbers have gained acceptance at the fringes of society, swamp gobbers have always held a particularly unsavory reputation, and those who serve as river raiders among the pirate crews that prey on western Immoren are no exception. With rusted hooks, axes, and swords, they hack into their enemies with a savagery common only to the wilds.

The Swamp Gobber River Raiders come in a blister (PIP 41127). A player may field up to three sets of three Raiders for each warcaster or warlock in a Cryx, Circle, Skorne, or Blindwater Congregation pact army.

Hordes: Devastation (Softcover)
$31.99 SRP

Hordes: Devastation (Hardcover)
$41.99 SRP
Choices often come with unintended consequences, and doubly so for those choices born of desperation. A decision made under duress, in the heat of the moment, can lead to exactly the end it was meant to avoid. Such is the story of Madrak Ironhide and his choice to wield the ancient and terrible axe Rathrok in a desperate bid to save his people. As the power of the axe stirs and grows with each blood-soaked battle, the Devourer Wurm turns from its eternal battle against Menoth in Urcaen and casts its gaze upon the world of the living. Sensing its master’s desires Wurmwood, the Tree of Fate, carefully manipulates events from the shadows, preparing to enact a ritual that will part the veil and unleash the Devourer Wurm on Caen. Amid these climactic events, legendary warlocks rise to the crisis, tapping heretofore-unknown inner reserves so they might avert the apocalypse...or perhaps hasten it.

As old heroes become new again, the wild factions of Immoren cast aside all pretense of hiding in the shadows and reveal the true extent of their might. Previously unseen gargantuans descend upon the battlefield, their footsteps shaking the earth as they heed their warlocks’ calls to slaughter. Whether it be the crackling electrical fury of the savage Storm Raptor or the multi-headed, acid-spewing nightmare that is the Desert Hydra, these fearsome warbeasts will rock the very foundations of war within the Iron Kingdoms.

Hordes: Devastation brings you the next thrilling chapter of the Hordes saga. Fight for survival with:
-New incarnations of some of Hordes’ most feared and revered legends.
-New and terrifying gargantuans ready to crush the opposition.
-New units, solos, and warbeasts ready to lend their strength to the battle for survival.
-New narrative fiction continuing the savage tale of Hordes: Exigence.
-A painting and modeling guide to help you prepare your forces for battle.
-Theme Force lists for each new warlock.

Hordes: Circle of Orboros: Extreme Feral Warpwolf
$49.99 SRP

This towering model exudes raw, unrestrained power and unearthly grace. The ferocity of the Extreme Warpwolf is unmatched and strikes fear into all who would oppose the Circle of Orboros. Privateer Press Extreme models embody the full-throttle attitude of Warmachine and Hordes cranked up another notch. These models represent the ultimate creative vision for the Iron Kingdoms’ most iconic warjacks and warbeasts - taken to the extreme! Designed for the display case, these models are also legal for use in Warmachine and Hordes games.

The Extreme Feral Warpwolf comes in a box (PIP 72093). A player may field any number of Feral Warpwolves in a Circle army.

SPECIAL NOTE: PIP 72093 contains the same stat card as the Feral Warpwolf in PIP 72057. The model in this box represents the same figure in the game. However, the model in PIP 72093 is a premium “Extreme” sculpt designed as a collector’s display piece and suitable for tabletop use.

1 Extreme Feral Warpwolf

Hordes: Minions: Farrow Brigand Warlord
$14.99 SRP

In farrow society, might makes right, and only the strongest and most willful climb the ranks over the battered bodies of those left below them. Through bloody battles against both friend and foe, farrow warlords are those rare few who have scraped together enough clout to hold their positions througha lifetime of unbridled violence and cunning. No warlord’s position is secure, requiring demonstrations of sheer brutality to keep the ambitions of their subordinates inline. The slightest hint of weakness can topple any of them. To the farrow, this represents the natural order.

The Farrow Brigand Warlord comes in a blister (PIP 75060). A player may field one Farrow Brigand Warlord for each warlock in a Circle, Legion, Skorne, Trollblood, or Thornfall Alliance pact army.
