WARMACHINE: Tactics Full Release

Privateer Press Interactive announced the full release of WARMACHINE: Tactics on Steam for Windows and OS X, following an early access period for this turn-based tactical combat game. "It seems like just yesterday that we were celebrating an overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign for WARMACHINE: Tactics," said WARMACHINE creator and Privateer Press founder Matt Wilson. "I am humbled and thankful that today we can celebrate bringing the WARMACHINE world to life on PCs and Macs, for all the WARMACHINE miniatures gamers who played out the action of the tabletop in their imaginations, and for all the video gamers who will experience the WARMACHINE world for the first time." Here's the news:
Privateer Press Interactive announced that WARMACHINE: Tactics is moving out of Early Access, and the full version is now available on Steam for $39.99. As part of this full version release, WARMACHINE: Tactics now includes a full 20-mission single player campaign in addition to its robust skirmish and multiplayer modes.

Based on the award-winning WARMACHINE tabletop miniatures game, WARMACHINE: Tactics is a turn-based, squad-level strategy game for PC and Mac developed in cooperation with WhiteMoon Dreams and published by Privateer Press Interactive. The game has been enthusiastically received by Early Access players and critics, with Nerd Reactor calling it “a blast” and the Dread Gazebo calling it “sheer joy.” WARMACHINE: Tactics funded through Kickstarter, entered Early Access on Steam 10 months from the close of the campaign, and reached full version release after just 15 months.

In this case, WH:T was intentionally not to be a table top replacement because Privateer Press doesn't want that.

Ah. Was not aware of that. Makes sense though, although why wouldn't they? I've always been a fan of table top gaming, but I'm fairly unskilled and uninterested in modeling and painting. To this date I've only painted up about 2000 points worth of a Thousand Sons WH:40K army which I gave away to a friend when I stopped playing. Mostly I borrowed armies from friends or, when I played Warmachine, just play with figs that only had a coat of primer on.

I'm not at the point in my life where I have the time for the hobby aspect of the game, but I'm more than sure that PP could squeeze a few hundred dollars out of me for a respectable digital version of the game.

Sounds like this isn't it though. Sadness, because I'm also really fond of the Warmachine universe. I had a lot of fun with the Iron Kingdoms role playing game as well back in the day. A video game RPG set in that universe would also be appealing.
