News: Mantic Games Newsletter


Hi all, more news from Mantic Games! Looks like their Undead are coming soon!

Mantic Games Trade Newsletter
Undead Concept Art

We are always asked for more information about how a new army gets developed.
It starts with concept sketches, so we thought an insight into the development of the forthcoming Undead range would be appreciated.
This piece of art drawn by Stef Kopinski came from the Undead concept folder, and shows off the look of the new skeletons beautifully.

Here is a photo of 10 plastic skeletons from the command sprue. These go out for painting today - watch this space for a fully painted 28mm regiment soon.

For your chance to get your own skeletons, don't forget the Undead Skeleton Regiment Deal where you can pick up 60 skeletons at knee trembling prices! True army building value - we understand you can never have enough skeletons!

Resin 'Collectors Range'

During our design process we create some finely detailed 90mm resin models - these figures are cast to order by hand and stand three times the size of an ordinary 30mm figure.

At shows and events we have been asked time and again for these to be made available - they have been adored by painters and collectors alike (and a few have mentioned that they would make excellent statues/scenery pieces or unique army giants!).

Due to the resin process mass production is impossible, but we have worked with our supplier to make a limited number available for retail sale.

They are made of high quality resin and there will only be 75 ever produced of the first two in the range. We have made available an Elf and a Skeleton, each a unique model from the Mantic plastic range. There is an option to buy an square individual base (60mm x 60mm), so anyone heroic enough to want a full unit can rank them up!

Finally, each model will come with its own unique numbered certificate of authenticity, signed by the sculptor, and depatched in its own Mantic storage/carry case.
Globally we will only ever produce 75 of these two models, please order quickly to avoid disappointment.

We will be making other models in this range available in the future, so if you want to collect the set please use the 'contact us' when you order and we will add you to the 'reserved list' for future releases.
