WARMACHINE and HORDES are fast-paced and aggressive 32 mm tabletop miniatures battle games set in the steam-powered fantasy world of the Iron Kingdoms.
In WARMACHINE, you take control of an elite soldier-sorcerer called a warcaster and his mighty warjacks (massive steam-powered automatons) as you battle to destroy the enemy warcaster.
In HORDES, you are a fierce warrior-sorcerer called a warlock and you control massive and terrifying monstrosities, known as warbeasts, as you battle to destroy the enemy warlock.
