Wargame miniature maker Privateer Press has announced several new releases for its popular Warmachine and Hordes tabletop games, which are due for release this September.

The Holy Zealots are a new unit for the Protectorate faction from Warmachine. According to Privateer: "In years when the Protectorate pretended not to possess a standing army, no able-bodied Menite would refuse a call to arms, and the faithful continue to join the crusade even now that the need for secrecy has passed. Armed with their unshakable belief and devastating firebombs, these holy zealots are spurred to combat by a battle priest that girds them with prayers to the Lawgiver. The Holy Zealot unit comes in a box (PIP 32095). A player may field up to three Holy Zealot units for each warcaster in a Protectorate army."

Alongside this, there's an exciting two-player battle box, which is great for newcomers who want to pick up the Hordes game. The kit contains everything you need to get started, including a complete Hordes Primal Mk II rules in a travel-sized 88-page booklet, an introductory guide, dice, ruler and 20 plastic Hordes models.

Meanwhile, for those already passionate about Hordes there are some fantastic Trollblood figures. There's the Storm Troll, which "unlike the many varieties of trolls that prefer to blend into their environments, a storm troll primed with galvanic energy and ready to attack is a blazing beacon of power that intimidates well beyond its size. Deadly lightning erupts from the array of natural conductors that runs the length of its spine, playing along its sides before bolting from its mouth at anything that arouses the troll’s ire".

But we've definitely saved the best until last: the incredible Mountain King model in resin and white metal. The description for this impressive beast reads: "To look upon a mountain king is to see the primal essence of the troll: hunger, rage, and the strength of nature. Set loose upon the world, these great trolls shake the ground with their tread and sunder granite with their roars. Mountain kings, who seek to satisfy an appetite incomprehensible to lesser creatures, now walk Caen again after millennia of imprisonment below the earth. Their awakening can mean only desperation—or madness—on the part of the trollkin".
