Now that you’ve had a chance to look at the content we have on offer, and perhaps browse our Quick-Start Rules, it’s time to get you involved in some games! The first thing that you should do is to click the link below. This will automatically add you to our Discord server, where a friendly member of The Press Gang (a dedicated team of community organisers) will be with you as soon as possible to give you your first demo game! We strongly recommend having a microphone and speakers for this, as it is much easier to communicate via voice. From there, you’re officially a player of Warmachine and Hordes – congratulations from us to you on joining the best community in miniature wargaming!

Where to Go

Below is a map of the local Press Gang members around the world. It’s our hope that we can provide one to every community, and they should be your first point of contact when getting into the game. If you don’t see anyone for your area, the best place to go is the General Discussion Facebook page! It has the largest member count out of all of the various Warmachine and Hordes communities, so you’re much more likely to get a response there than anywhere else.
