Finally watched the Turn 8 show and was very pleased with some of Mantic announcements. The only thing I did not like was the show itself... It's a pity they can't add chapters in the video so you can just go straight to what you wanted to see.

Quickly OT.. did those Beasts of War guys ever do another table building series?
The first one they did was not too bad really...

Hmmm, the potential to organise a bunch of gamers around a webcam and talk **** whilst swigging Buckie out of a **** bottle...


Could be a winning formula.  Actually, it sounds like our game nights.  Except for the webcam...

Drinking with ones buddies, yapping about gamestuff etc is great. Watching a bunch of people drinking and straying off topic, talking over each other, and the person they're interviewing, is not so much fun and gets annoying and tiresome real fast.

Have you ever been a designated driver? And had to stay sober while the rest of your buddies were drinking. It turns out most people aren't as funny or coherent when they're drunk as they think they are. Sure it can provide some entertainment fodder for a little while, but as I said, it gets old fast.

Many years ago, when I was the only one in my group with my own car...

When I'm sober, drunk people annoy me, when I'm drunk...  I annoy sober and drunk people.   Tongue

Too much updated to post again here. Please check the Roundup out for the latest info on Mantic.

Mantic has released a press release through TableTop Gaming News.

http://www.tabletopgamingnews.com/2011/06/11/47432/comment-page-1/#comment-64000

Short story; Mantic will be releasing Metal Hero miniatures on individual blisters this July.

Slight longer story; These will be new sculpts based on existing minis. Although I can't spot the differences from the first 4 photos shown on TGNs site. However on Monday a new metal Orc Hero will be unveiled. There is also a sixth mystery blister that will be unveiled later. I'm guessing it will be of whichever army will be released next... Goblin, Evil Elves, or Humans. That's just speculation on my part though.

Er, Darsc, it says 'combining the most popular heroes from the Kings of War range with brand new sculpts unique to the blisters.' which means the initial 4 are the current sculpts (most popular heroes) and will be joined by new sculpts.

Some here may have seen these already, but for those that haven't, Mantic is releasing a new Collectors Figure as well as some new metal miniatures on blisters.







Some previously released miniatures, like Mhorgoth, are also going to be released on blisters. The two pictures here however are new sculpts. Although it has been pointed out that the krudger appears to be a modified sculpt of the previously released krudger bannerman.

I have read of people raging about the price opf the blisters etc but I for one am happy with their release. It allows Mantic to get more visibility in shops etc which can only increase sales. More sales will mean more and quicker releases which is fine by me.

Plus exclusive sculpts are good too.

That Krudger looks good... may need to get me one of those!

So I just noticed on the Mantic Games home page there is a painted picture of the orc shaman and his fireball. Good to see some of the details of the model! Very nice. I couln't find him anywhere else so far though.

Mantic is promising a new video by Ronnie tomorrow which will outline Mantics 3 year plan.

Should be interesting.

Well, I've finally updated the News and Rumour Roundups in the first posts of this thread and the Scifi News and Rumour thread.

Sorry for the time between updates guys.

No, I haven't updated the first post roundups yet, but I do have a few things to share with those  that aren't yet subscribed to Mantics Newsletter.

Mantics latest Newsletter talks about some great, but very limited army deals on undead, dwarfs, and elves if anyone wants to expand or start their army.

http://www.manticgames.com/Shop-Home/Sale/Special-Army-Deals.html?utm_source=Mantic+Games+Newsletter&utm_campaign=9eb5f05a7c-Mantic_Games_Newsletter_130&utm_medium=email

I'm very happy to see Mantics store is now selling Renendra's Tombstone and Barrel sets.

http://www.manticgames.com/Shop-Home/Paints-and-Hobby/Scenery.html

There's also a great deal on a 10 mini set of Hasslefrees female combat soldier set as well as a hobby supply bag deal full of paints, brushes, dice and more.

I see another Mantic order being placed in my very near future.  Grin
