Warmachine MkIV

Drumroll please...

Warmachine players have been asking for months if Longshanks can be updated to relfect the new Army-building system in MkIV. I'm happy to announce that we recently added MkIV as a totally separate game system! Check out the new banner in the game system selection menu:

Why did we do that? Well, the faction, Army, and Caster system is different enough in MkIV that it wasn't really compatible with MkIII anymore.

What does this mean for old events?

For MkIII events, it doesn't mean anything. Those events will continue to exist as they always have and we don't plan to take them offline until just before the heat-death of the universe.

For MkIV events that used the existing Warmachine & Hordes system here on Longshanks, there are two options.

  1. It means nothing! Those events can also just continue to exist as they always have. No muss, no fuss.
  2. They can be upgraded! You can request that your existing MkIV events be updated to work in the new MkIV-specific format.

For events in the distant future, we request that you create a new event and delete the existing one. If you want to have an event upgraded, please use this form:

For any questions or concerns, please contact us through any of our communications channels.

Happy gaming!
