They are several times more durable and powerful than normal troops, but are far more costly. Warcasters are the pivotal characters of the game. Warcasters are powerful generals and spellcasters who have learned to control warjacks. Each warcaster has a special feat that can be used once per battle; their effects range from subtle to explosive and can be enough to change the tide of battle. In addition to warcasters and warjacks, armies can field supporting infantry troops of many varieties, powerful machines of war called battle engines, durable structures that support their infantry troops, and even more massive versions of warjacks known as colossals.

They are several times more durable and powerful than normal troops, but are far more costly. Warcasters are the pivotal characters of the game. Warcasters are powerful generals and spellcasters who have learned to control warjacks. Each warcaster has a special feat that can be used once per battle; their effects range from subtle to explosive and can be enough to change the tide of battle.
In addition to warcasters and warjacks, armies can field supporting infantry troops of many varieties, powerful machines of war called battle engines, durable structures that support their infantry troops, and even more massive versions of warjacks known as colossals.
Some are infantry or gunners, while others have more specialized roles, from warjack repairmen to "journeyman" warcasters - novice versions of the models that command armies. Most of these troops come in groups and move in formations, but there are also independent characters called solos. In the first major expansion, Warmachine: Wrath, battle engines were introduced.
Battle engines are huge mechanical constructs that are not warjacks and thus does not require focus. Each faction has one battle engine available at the moment. The second major expansion, Warmachine: Colossals, gave each faction towering warjacks known as Colossals.
Taking a role similar to a battleship, each Colossal is heavily armed and capable dealing and receiving large amounts of damage.
Their powerful presence is balanced by their high cost to include them in an army, making the loss of a Colossal during the course of a game a heavy loss of resources. The third major expansion, Warmachine: Vengeance, added new Epic versions of older warlords, as well as new units, solos and warjacks. The new journeyman warcasters introduced with the video game Warmachine: Tactics see below were also added. Most recently, through the CID or Community Integrated Development process, a new model type has been added called structures.
These immobile models often deploy far ahead of normal forces, but may not change positions throughout the game, and provide a powerful, if situational, bonus to your army. Stationed atop the largest base size in the game, these massive buildings can be seen from anywhere on the battlefield, making them tempting targets, but often powerful fortifications.
Gameplay[ edit ] The overall gameplay is supposed to encourage aggression rather than defensive tactics, such as sitting behind fortifications. Warmachine is similar to many other miniature wargames in that each army consists of several units, each of which acts during a turn. Individual units move, attack, and may perform other actions such as repairing a warjack or using a feat.
The primary mechanic unique to Warmachine is the use of focus points. Focus allows warjacks to become more accurate and powerful by "boosting" their attacks, and to perform special actions called "Power Attacks" such as slamming a model across the battlefield with their heft or throwing an enemy model at another model. Good focus management can often be the difference between winning and losing.
The warcaster is the single most important model on either side in the game. Releases[ edit ] The first book, Warmachine: Prime, was originally released in , with a revised edition, Warmachine: Prime Remix, released in early All of the subsequent books have been expansions of Prime. Each expansion usually introduces new warcasters, warjacks, units, and solos, as well as new model subtypes — such as cavalry units — that add new strategies and complexities to each faction.
With the release of Mk II, all previous books models have been folded into the new Forces of Warmachine series. Mark I Warmachine.
