A Message From Privateer:
With the announcement of the new editions for WARMACHINE and HORDES, we have disabled Mk II faction deck and bundle purchases in War Room. War Room 2.0 will release alongside the pre-release of the new editions of the games at Lock & Load and will launch with the free WARMACHINE and HORDES Core Rules PDF and updated faction decks for purchase. For more information, visit the new edition FAQ page here:
War Room is the first official utility app released for WARMACHINE and HORDES. The app developed by TinkerHouse Games puts an extensive library of WARMACHINE and HORDES stat cards in the palm of players’ hands and gives them access to a wealth of features intended to facilitate faster and easier gameplay. In addition, users will receive regular news and rules updates from Privateer Press straight to their mobile devices.
- Full Card Display: Model stat cards are shown exactly as they are printed, so players can reference them easily and with the same confidence as printed cards.
- Army Creation Workshop: Players can select their faction and game size and then choose their warcasters or warlocks, warjacks or warbeasts, units, solos, and battle engines to create army lists—all within the War Room application.
- In-Game Damage Tracking: In-game damage tracking will give players immediate and easily accessible information on every fighting model in their command.
- Rules Reference: A built-in comprehensive rules reference allows players to check any rule quickly and easily and get back to the game.
- In-Game List Sharing: Lists will be sharable between every player using War Room in the same game so they can quickly access each other’s model status and abilities, allowing players to keep their focus on the tabletop action.
- Turn Clock: This optional player-initiated feature allows players to keep individual turns fast but fairly apportioned.
The base app is a free download and includes all the stat cards from WARMACHINE: Prime Mk II and HORDES: Primal Mk II. It also includes model stat cards from the WARMACHINE Two-Player Battle Box and a special selection of Mercenary, Minion, and Retribution of Scyrah models.
Full faction decks for both WARMACHINE and HORDES will be available as additional downloads for $6.99. Every deck will include all currently released stat cards for that faction as well as new model updates for the life of the current rules set.
Fix for Fight mode rules display.
Ratings and Reviews
I find this to be a very useful app most of the time, but lately it's not letting me unlock the faction decks at all. I've bought a few, but I'm still wanting to buy more faction decks to start new armies. Please fix this so I can see what I'm wanting to invest in.
Still awful after all these years
Clunky, unintuitive, slow in spite of being used on a phone several generations newer than what the app was originally designed for. Now with added absence of support for large screens and badly pixelated fonts. The only reason to spend money on this is that PP shut down the free (and great) alternative apps.
I'm so glad Privateer Press stuck with the highly competent Tinkerhouse Games for the upcoming version 2 of this disaster.
Great resource for playing without cards! Currently, in-app purchases are turned off, because MK III is coming out.
