Privateer press July releases: Collosal!

Just in time (Hopefully) for me to get the brunt of my Legion force, Privateer press is coming out with another book and man is this one big.
See what I did there?
From their site
"Darkness descends upon the nations of the Iron Kingdoms as the undead legions of Cryx overwhelm Point Bourne, revealing their true strength. As war once again consumes the land, the embattled nations race to deploy colossal warjacks bristling with weaponry to turn the tide. But the emergence of new threats, both ancient and unseen, will force old enemies into uneasy cooperation in a fight for survival!
WARMACHINE: Colossals brings you the next thrilling chapter of the WARMACHINE saga. Elevate your game with:

  • Powerful new colossals—enormous warjacks that dwarf even the largest heavy ’jacks and bring all-new strategies to the table.
  • New warcasters for each faction, including the third incarnations of some of the Iron Kingdoms’ greatest champions.
  • Fully compiled and updated Unbound rules, allowing you to recreate iconic large-scale battles with specialized rules to enhance gameplay.

  • A painting and modeling guide to help you prepare your colossals for combat.
  • Theme Force lists for each new warcaster, which allow you to create armies based on the specialized forces found in the WARMACHINE world.
  • FOCUS YOUR WILL AND CRUSH THE ENEMY BENEATH YOUR COLOSSAL MIGHT!"

    Check after the jump for more info



    Khador Conquest Colossal (resin and white metal)
    MSRP $134.99 PIP 33050

    The Conquest is a walking mountain of steel bristling with some of the most powerful weapons ever used on the battlefields of the Iron Kingdoms. The deafening roar of the colossal’s steam-fed engine is punctuated by the staggering percussion of its devastating guns, which unleash a punishing barrage of shells able to reduce warjacks to slag and annihilate entire enemy formations. Deployed to the front lines, the Conquest brings unrivaled firepower to Khadoran battlegroups.

    The Conquest colossal comes in a box (PIP 33050) and includes a colossal wreck marker. A player may field up to two Conquests for each warcaster in a Khador army.

    Khador Iron Fang Pikemen Unit (repackaging) (white metal)
    MSRP $84.99 PIP 33090

    Heavily armored Khadoran Iron Fangs are charged with hunting down and destroying
    enemy warjacks. Fast and deadly, Iron Fangs are armed with explosive blasting pikes
    designed to tear through the thickest armor and bring enemy warjacks to their knees.

    The Iron Fang Pikemen unit comes in a box (PIP 33090). A player may field up to two
    Iron Fang Pikemen units for each warcaster in a Khador army.

    SPECIAL NOTE: PIP 33090 contains the same Mk II stat card as PIP 33018. The
    models in this box represent the same figures in the game. PIP 33090 replaces PIP
    33018 and PIP 33012 by offering their contents in a complete unit. The replaced PIPs
    will no longer be available from Privateer Press beginning July 1, 2012.

    Khador Vladimir Tzepesci, Great Prince of Umbrey Epic Cavalry Warcaster
    (white metal)
    MSRP $39.99 PIP 33092

    Reclaiming his long-denied birthright, Great Prince Vladimir Tzepesci rides his
    warhorse Vsada into battle to defend the lands of Umbrey restored to his family. He
    wields weapons of the ancient Tzepesci horselords, carrying a spear in one hand
    and the mace Huntsman in the other. Should strength of arms alone prove
    insufficient, Vladimir lashes out with dark sorceries. The blood of kings that runs in
    his veins lends him the strength to secure victory.

    Vladimir Tzepesci, Great Prince of Umbrey epic cavalry warcaster comes in a box
    (PIP 33092). A player may field one Vladimir Tzepesci, Great Prince of Umbrey in a
    Khador army.

    Protectorate Castigator/Reckoner/Sanctifier Heavy Warjack (plastic kit)
    MSRP $34.99
    PIP 32070

    The Reckoner was heralded as the first warjack entirely of Menite design. It
    lights the way for the faithful with its cannon as it charges across the
    battlefield and then smashes anything still standing with its club. Based on the
    same design, the Castigator brings Menoth’s Fury to its enemies with its
    flaming fists and the ability to ignite the surrounding air with flesh-cremating
    heat. The Sanctifier is employed in battle to ensure the spirits of the righteous
    are ushered to Urcaen; as battle wears on, it becomes a vessel for Menite
    souls, fueling its power even as it protects the righteous.

    This box set contains three color stat cards and one multi-part heavy warjack
    plastic model (PIP 32070). Included are all the components to assemble one
    of three heavy warjack variants: Castigator, Reckoner, or Sanctifier. A player
    may field any number of these heavy warjacks in a Protectorate of Menoth
    army.

    SPECIAL NOTE: PIP 32070 contains the same Mk II stat cards as PIP 32025
    and PIP 32038. The model in this box represents the same figures as those
    PIPs in the game. However, the model in PIP 32070 is a new sculpt and
    therefore looks different from the models found in those PIPs. In addition, this model is plastic rather than metal. PIP
    32025 and 32038 will no longer be available from Privateer Press beginning July 1, 2012.

    Trollblood Sons of Bragg Character Unit (white metal)
    MSRP $TBD
    PIP 71063

    The Sons of Bragg swagger across western Immoren like living legends, each mighty with both
    sword and voice. The Sons are heard long before their arrival, booming mighty chants that
    resound off trees and mountains. Wrathar leads the chorus of his brothers Tor and Rhudd.
    Their voices join in perfect harmony to belt out powerful chants that sustain them despite
    impossibly grievous wounds. On their own each brother is formidable, but together they are an
    army of three.

    The Sons of Bragg unit comes in a box (PIP 71063). A player may field one Sons of Bragg unit
    in a Trollblood army.

    Circle Orboros Winter Argus Light Warbeast (white metal)
    MSRP $14.99
    PIP 72060

    The savage winter argus stalk the dark, frozen hinterlands of the Scarsfell Forest and
    Blackroot Wood, prowling under cover of great northern storms. Gouts of gelid breath
    freeze the argus’ victims in place until the pack closes in for the feast. Though feared
    by many, the creatures are prized by northern druids for their savagery and the
    supernatural cold they can manifest to cripple the enemies of the Circle Orboros.

    The Winter Argus light warbeast comes in a box (PIP 72060). A player may field any
    number of Winter Argus in a Circle Orboros army.

    Legion of Everblight Succubus Solo (white metal)
    MSRP $16.99
    PIP 73060
    Products of generations of Everblight’s manipulations, succubi are fonts of blighted arcane
    power. To create each one, a specially selected Nyss is brought to the spawning pools
    and ritually bathed in the blood of a warlock. It emerges as something no longer wholly
    Nyss, attuned to the warlock whose blood actualized its second birth. This ritual empowers
    each succubus as an amplifier of its warlock’s own gifts. With their every thought and
    action these creatures carry out the will of their masters and the dragon itself.

    The Succubus solo comes in a blister (PIP 73060). A player may field one Succubus for
    each warlock in a Legion of Everblight army.

    Skorne Tiberion Character Titan Heavy Warbeast Upgrade Kit (white metal)
    MSRP $17.99
    PIP 74061

    Few warbeasts survive long enough to distinguish themselves in the service of the skorne,
    but the fiercely intelligent and disciplined Tiberion has fought alongside Tyrant Xerxis for
    over a decade. Because the titan’s intractable nature made him almost impossible to train,
    his original handlers nearly put him to death. Xerxis sensed an extraordinary fighting spirit
    in him, though, and took it upon himself to break the beast. Now Tiberion serves his
    master Xerxis with all the devotion of a sworn soldier, standing immovable against waves
    of enemies even as he shatters entire formations with his powerful tetsubo.

    The Tiberion character titan heavy warbeast upgrade comes in a blister (PIP 74061). The
    Tiberion character titan heavy warbeast upgrade is NOT a complete model. Players will
    need a Skorne Cannoneer/Gladiator/Sentry Titan Heavy Warbeast (PIP 74057) in addition
    to this kit. A player may field one Tiberion in a Skorne army.

    No Quarter Magazine #43
    MSRP $7.50
    PIP NQ43 


    Seems like some interesting stuff. I'm sure the colossals will shake up the higher point games. Too bad they are not coming out with all of them at the same time though. What do you guys think about them? The price tag is a bit high for me at the moment. Are they going to be tournament staples or just fancy big models???
