There have been some inquiries about whether newly released models will be allowed at the WTC. We will continue to use Privateer Press’ policy which is that models are allowed when they are publicly available (usually their “street date”).
A handy, but unofficial, guide to street dates may be found here.
If a model become unexpectedly unavailable by the time of the WTC, the player will not be allowed to use the model. It will be dropped from their existing, pre-submitted lists.
UPDATE: A few people asked so we wanted to clarify that the new Warmachine casters that were released at GenCon 2016 *are* eligible right now because they were publicly available through Privateer Press’ online store. This is also in line with their policy on model eligibility.
Also remember that all models at the WTC must be painted to the “Advanced Painting Required” standard as listed in the Steamroller document.
Please email us if you have any questions.
