Cheers Darsc, Im a tad bit excited myself. And Ill be doing some freelance work for Mantic in the future, there are already ideas thrown around and projects discussed... exciting times indeed, cant wait to get started.

In that case I'd like to get my Want List in early on what I'd like to see you sculpt for Mantic. For brevity I'll keep it to dwarfs for now. Cheesy

-Dwarf Rangers
-Dwarf Ironwatch (Both rifles and crossbows, based on the original artwork... Enough sculpts to complete a front rank of each)
-Dwarf Cavalry (Surprise us!)
-Dwarfs shooting a goblin out of a cannon (Just because)

I've got more on my list, but I know you've got that dragon cavalry to finish, so I'll leave the rest for now. Wink

Indeed, congratulations on the model seeing a full on production. It is one of those cases where people (like myself) who have zero sculpting talent must just sit back and applaud. You nailed the artwork perfectly, glad I have never cashed any mantic points yet (last count 104).

I'm very happy to hear about that dwarf king!  That's just a fabulous model, and it's cool to hear about some freelance opportunities for you as well!  Congratulations again!

So there are now reports... Okay A report, of the second Dwarf Kings Hold game, Elves vs Orcs, being on the retailers release schedule.

If it's just appeared on the retailers list this month, that would indicate it's planned for a July release. Just in time for GenCon. Assuming this news is accurate, that game along with the original DKH and Mantics yet to be unveiled SciFi title would make up the three game releases that Ronnie had promised us for this year.

I always figured they would mash up the different armies in the DKH games. Elves versus Orcs should be interesting. Is it safe to assume that the game will be pretty much the same thing; good guys go barreling through some sort of stronghold to achieve objectives playing against a bad guy type guy?

Or any chance of 2 players on more or less even footing fighting it out?

104?  That's small change.  Grin



Congratz on the freelance gig WBM.  Well done.

Very cool. There is a new name a unit contest on the blog, for a new type of undead cavalry. I look forward to the WiP pics 'soon'.
Wonder whether they will be really heavy or light cavalry? The revenants seem more on the heavy side, but could be medium cav easily. It will be interesting to see how different the new ones are.

Hardly big news, but I just wanted to point out that sometime in the last month or so Mantic changed the photo of the Collector's resin base to a painted one, which I just noticed while stalking the site. I must say the work on it looks rather cool!

I did notice that. About time.

I keep checking the Collectors Figures section in the hopes I'll find they've added that skeleton of yours, and of course I've been waiting for an Orc to show up there too.

Its kind of funny that they never did make any announcement when they added that skeleton dog to the lineup.
