1. Can I donate with credit card or Paypal?

Yes, the preferred method for donations is directly to our Wounded Warrior Project page here, or by making a donation at the event with cash or personal check.   This reduces fees and thus increases the effective contribution to the WWP.  You can also donate using Paypal via our ticket vendor Brown Paper Tickets.


2. My Store or Club wants to make a Fundraising Team, do you have instructions for doing so on the WWP site?

Yes, ask our TO to assist you when we visit your store to do your Caster Draft.  You’ll need one person with an active email account to serve as the coordinator.  There is no financial or legal responsibility in being a coordinator.  You can also use the directions here to set up a fundraising group yourself.  Please follow the directions so that you are correctly linked to Feat of Service.


3. Why didn’t you use Kickstarter?

Kickstarter has a high fee for using their service.  We may consider using it in the future, especially to help secure a larger venue if we grow next year.


4. How can I  donate a prize, paint a model for auction, or sponsor your event?

Please email the details to featofservice@novanomads.com


5. Are you guys using the new ADR list PP just put out?

We are using the List that is current until June 30th. If you are confused about what list is active during the event it is the list found here and begins with Constance Blaize for Cygnar and ends with Midas for Minions.


6. Do you guys have some examples of how to create a Custom Caster?

Yes, please check out the following blogs:

Volt_Ron: Rohan, a take-no-prisoners battle wizard  = Hexeris1 Chassis in Legion

Plarzoid: Hyraal, a Hex Hunter caster = Vlad1 Chassis in Legion


7. Who are the casters we can use for our chassis?

Same as last year.


8. Why aren’t Ashlynn, Gorten, Syntherion etc in Set 1?

We wanted to be able to ensure all players had access to the Chassis rules.  As a result, we picked the set that is included in the free download of War Room for iOS and Android.  Yes, we think these casters are cool and may add more Chassis next year.  But for now, we think you can capture a duelist, dwarf or cyrissist vibe by building on one of the Set 1 Chassis.  Remember there are very few limits on your modelling and painting.


9. Why aren’t we drafting Animi?

In the Privateer Press version of a spell draft the Animi are included as cards in the draft along with all the spells.  We felt this took away from our vision of your creation playing within the normal context of the Iron Kingdoms world.  Also, this keeps the model rules more consistent across the day with the exception of each player’s one special model.


10. Can I bring my custom caster from last year?

Yes, absolutely! They keep all their spells and abilities. You can change the list up to approximately 25%. This limitation is intended to keep it balanced while allowing you to add in some new released models. Keep in mind that character jacks and beasts are still not allowed. However, YOUR CASTER gained a bond last year. If you didn’t write it on your caster sheet, we’ll reroll for you at the start of the event!


11. Can my Custom Caster from 2014 go Epic?

That is up to you!  You can keep your same story based character and build a new epic model to go along with their new chassis and spells for this year.  Or you may keep the same chassis. Chances are very likely though that you will have almost no repeat spells.  If you think we should change this then volunteer to be a playtester for this event for 2016!  If you keep all your rules from last year then along with the bond from 2014 it is a good bet that something interesting may slowly develop for your custom caster over time.  We definitely want to see people return to help us raise money for our charity year after year!


12. Can I take a Gargantuan or Colossal?

Yes, your initial core army list of 25 pts may include a non-character Gargantuan or Colossal.


13. Can I convert my whole army or use a unit of Blighted Nyss swordsmen as part of my Blighted Retribution Idea?

Work and components that would normally pass the Privateer Press modelling and conversion rules for competitive play will be accepted.  We have given you an even greater degree of creative choice when modelling your Custom Caster.  However, proxy models are not allowed as it is too confusing for your opponents.  If you feel strongly about this topic be sure to leave comments and suggestions on our forum.  Maybe your ideas can be incorporated in the future.

  1. Michael Wood on May 7, 2014 at 2:38 am said:

    I am using Lord Tyrant Hexeris in a Cygnar army and was wondering how Vampiric Reaving will interact with Warmachine? Will I gain Focus equal to the Fury the warbeast had on it when it died, will the fury be wasted or will he lose the ability completely?

    Thank you

  2. Michael, thats a great question that is also not fully covered in the Who’s the Boss FAQ (http://crippledsystem.com/mayhem/WTB_8.pdf)

    The answer to your question is that as a warcaster he would gain focus equal to the fury on the warbeast he destroyed.

    Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at Feat of Service!
