Yeah, they've all been pretty bad lately, typically a review of any mantic kit goes along the lines of:

"Okay, open up the box and here we've got this wee little baggie of guns and stuff and extra little bits and stuff which I think is just smashing, I mean really it's great. Now here we've got some other little bits and I'll just open that up now and get one of these little guys put together, aha! This is nice, you get a big ol' fist for the little er, leadery type guy so he can wave it in the air and stuff and be all leaderlike. Now, I'll just put one of these guys together and show him off after the break."

"Okay, I'm back, here's this wee little leadery type guy that I've just built up real quickly, he's got his wee little pistol there and he's waving his big ol' fist about in the air to show that he's in charge. I think these are amazing, just amazing and will be really good for all types of sci-fi-ey type games and whatnot. Guys, what do you think? I think these are just great, let us know in the comments!"

This the problem with having a commercial-type outfit reviewing products. They can't be honest if don't like or just plain aren't interested in the product.. BoW stopped putting effort in a long time ago, these days it's just about securing an income, which means cranking out the reviews, securing interviews and keeping the content stream going so that they can keep the hits coming and the ad revenue stream going.

Vast gulf between sites like BoW and BoLS where you can tell they're just doing it as a commercial thing, offering news articles in exchange for traffic-driving exclusives (or backstage pass content in the case of BoW), and sites like bruckenkopf that seem to be doing their reviews out of a genuine interest in the product, with a strong desire to offer a quality review.

I am really, really, *really* hoping that we get the beta for Warpath 2.0 and KoW 3.0 up for discussion on the mantic forum instead of backstage-pass only this year.

I have no problem with BoW getting rumours first, but as far as rules debates go, they'd be much better off sticking to their own forums. I think Warpath 1.0 would have turned out a lot better if they'd posted on their own forums asking for feedback.
