Warmachine: Maximize Your New Exemplar Theme Box

2 Minute Read

Privateer Press has made it easy to get into Protectorate of Menoth with the new Exemplar Theme Box.  If you were trying to get into some budget Menoth and have a bunch of kick-ass knights then this is the box for you.

Getting into the Exemplar theme is never been easier! This box set provides you with a great base to start your Exemplar army today. This is some of what you’ll find in the theme box:

Exemplar Cinerators plus Officer:  This is a tanky unit that will be very hard to kill in most cases.  Behind their ‘Shield Wall’, they stay safe from most attacks and then strike out with ‘Vengeancece’ moves

Exemplar Knights plus Officer:  This is the mainstay of the Exemplar army.  Hard hitting knights who get ‘Battle Driven’ to feats of strength as their allies die around them.

Exemplar Warder:  This is a new solo that protects a chosen model. He has ‘Shield Guard’ and if he isn’t the last to die in a turn he will keep on fighting as his friends death drive him forward.


To play the Exemplar Interdiction theme you need a whole bunch of Exemplars. The theme gives 3 special benefits if you play it:

Warjacks are Blessed:   All of your warjacks will ignore your opponents spell defensives such as Arcane Shield or Blur.  Nothing will make a Cygnar player sadder than when your warjack rolls up and is rolling even dice versus dice minus 3.


Free solos for every 20 points of Exemplars:  Exemplar theme has some really expensive solos at 6 points and below.  Getting some free dudes to fit in your list will make it stronger.

2″ of extra Deployment:  Exemplar guns are not that great.  So they want to get to their enemy and share the word of Menoth real quick.  2 extra inches closer to your foe is makes it that much easier.


This 50 point list gets a bunch of Exemplar bodies running at your opponent real quick.  Kreoss2 is the supreme Exemplar caster historically and with his recent CID changes, he does it even better.
