Saw your models on the blog and looking forward to seeing them at the Open Day.  Grin

I'm assuming that the Pathfinder programme is a relatively new thing?

It would be great to see more info from Mantic on this as there are no local stockists and no (that I know of) local clubs playing Mantic games in my region.

I would certainly like to get involved somehow if even only to make sure there are a few more opponents to play against.  Sick of getting beaten by my 8 year old son who has a keen knack of reading rules once and then remembering everything!

Yeah it is relatively new (as in still not sure how it all works).

Whereabouts do you live, Andy, and are you mobile, cos you're always welcome to come and have a game on our table here? Got a choice of three opponents, myself (undead) and my twins (elves and orcs). Drop us a message and let me know!

Failing that, see you at the Launch Party!!

I'm based in the North East but work in Manchester and also often visit family near Peterborogh some weekends so I deffinitely get about!

I am lucky enough to get a car with my job so fuel costs arn't a problem and would definitly be willing to travel for games.

I'll catch up with you at the launch party.

Thought that this might be the best place to post it but I just wanted to say what a fantastic job the Pathfinders did at yesterday's  Launch Party.

Pete McF (didn't realise it was you until later!) did an awesome job of demoing for my son and I and seeing gaarew's blue Mauraders in the flesh they looked amazing and the photos here just don't do them justice.

Everyone was really friendly and helpful and I hope Mantic appreciate the job your doing for them.

Well done guys!

Andy...

We did,

We picked up 2 of the Fate of the Forge Star box sets, the 2 Hero models, an extra 20 Marauders, a couple of extra Raptors and the resin destryed Jotunn model.

We both had a great day so thanks again.

It's still in the works for outside of the UK.

I emailed Mantic at info@manticgames.com and asked to be put on the list for those to be contacted once they figure out their outside of the UK approach for this program.

Until then, I'm going to build two 500 point armies for each game for half hour demo games.  Though Warpath will wait until the Corporation miniatures come out.

I figure the easiest thing to do is to start building and painting my demo forces up to 500 points and get started introducing people to the games and then once I can get some support from Mantic through a volunteer program, I'll get involved with that.

For demo purposes, it might be a better idea to have a fully painted Mhorgoth Rising box set, seeing as that is easily bought by new players.  Just saying    Wink

Definitely a good idea to use the starters.

That said, I don't really want Forgefathers or Dwarves so I'm not really interested in making a purchase of them just to volunteer.  If Mantic decides that means I can't be part of the program, then I won't.

I suspect they'll be more like Privateer and let the "starters" be from any faction rather than just their two player starter.  But if not, then that's fine.  I'll still try to find opponents and spread the game around, I just won't do it in the capacity of part of a volunteer promotional team.

I like the minis enough to buy them, even if I ever did get a set for free.  (In fact, my policy is pretty much if I get something free, I have to buy another one.)  I keep hoping for some word on the U.S. Pathfinders just because, if I have an actual project to work towards, I can carve out time to prepare for it.  But right now, if it's a case of promoting on my own, my wife would rather have me working on her business.  And, since a lot of our money is tied up in that, I can't really argue with her. Wink

But I hope to hear more on the Pathfinders.  I'd love an excuse to go play more and evangelize.

Mantic first put the word out for Pathfinders back in August. The only official word I've had back regarding the program in North America was an email back at the start of September, advising Mantic would be in contact with those on the list once the details were worked out.

Still waiting.  Wink
