Privateer’s in house magazine is getting a new name and a new focus.
The September/October issue is going to bring some big changes – all aiming to make the quarterly a fundamental part of Warmachine and Hordes. This includes new name: No Quarter Prime. The issues will reboot at #1, and they will be advertisement free to max out the amount of content in each issue. Speaking of, there are some awesome changes to content planned. The new focus will be on new game content players can use the instant they get their hands on it, in depth Iron Kingdoms lore, and detailed hobby articles.
NQ’s editor in chief, Lyle Lowery, gives a look at what he and Privateer have planned….
Each issue of No Quarter Prime will contain extensive, comprehensive information about one of the varied and unique fighting forces of the Iron Kingdoms. And we’re not just talking about a page of theme force rules—we’re talking about a deep dive into the background and organization of these fighting forces, the introduction of new units and heroes, their weapons and equipment, alternate color schemes for thematic units, new scenarios, and hobby features. And that’s JUST the theme force content. The September/October issue will have 36 pages of content on Cygnar’s trenchers, and each issue of No Quarter Prime will tackle a different theme force or comparable group of warriors for WARMACHINE and HORDES.
No Quarter Prime will have several new regular features, and the theme force content is just one example. One of the other exciting new additions will be the 18-page feature called “The Fire & the Forge,” dedicated to retelling the WARMACHINE and HORDES sagas from the beginning. We’ve heard your calls for a collected version of the WARMACHINE and HORDES sagas, and we’re answering with something more exciting than a mere compilation.
This will be an updated chronicle of the events that ignited the modern era of warfare in the Iron Kingdoms as originally depicted beginning with WARMACHINE: Prime (the Mk I one), retold in a uniform, collected series and brought to you in each No Quarter Prime. “The Fire & the Forge” will use both essay and narrative storytelling to stitch together this grand saga—think of it like one of those History Channel series that goes back and forth between voiceover and dramatization. If you have wanted all the lore around the world-changing events of the Iron Kingdoms in one place, “The Fire & the Forge” series is going to deliver it.
