News: Mantic Newsletter

View Comments
Hello all, another Mantic newsletter is out and this one brings us the release of the Undead Revenants! These guys look fairly good although I'll have to see more pictures for a better review of them. If you are ordering, they are doing their FREE shipping deal again, which is just awesome! A certain other company should consider a deal like that with new minis being released.

Mantic Games releases the Undead Revenants

This week sees the new Revenant Regiment up for advance order.

This regiment allows you to add a heavily armoured skeleton unit to your Undead Army, and each set comes with loads of head swaps, extra bits of Revenant armour and numerous conversion possibilities. Keep watching the Beast of War site next week for a world exclusive review of the new Revenant regiment set.

This unit will be shipping within the next few weeks – and to celebrate the launch we will be doing our now legendary (well nearly!) 3 regiments for £30 launch offer, which you can have on our free shipping offer – quite frankly you’d be mad not to!!
Please note

This weekend is your last chance to order the Morgoth's army deal. Click here to see the offers - and if you want Morgoths, buy it this weekend - it comes off sale on Sunday midnight.


It's been a while...

This week also saw the MD of Mantic Games returning to the mantic blog with a very interesting post. Click here to read it.

News: Forgeworld Newsletter 231

Hi all, time for another FW newsletter and this one is packed! The new Valkyrie heavy lift variant is pretty cool, although you would only use it with the Tauros. The new Ork Killbursta looks amazing as well! There is also some info regarding FW Open Day and the new catalog! Read on...

Hi There,
This newsletter we have three fantastic new releases for you; the Valkyrie Sky Talon Transporter as well as the Ork Kill Blasta and Kill Bursta. We can also reveal more details of the forthcoming Open Day along with two other events that we will be attending in the first few months of 2010.

Thanks,
Ead Brown

Valkyrie Sky Talon
Valkyrie Sky Talon
A heavy lifter variant of the Valkyrie airborne assault carrier, the Sky Talon can swiftly carry a Tauros Venator deep behind enemy lines for long-range operations. Its heavy-duty magnetic clamps allow a Tauros Venator to be deployed directly into a combat operation, allowing the assault vehicle to operate far longer without supply.

The Sky Talon is armed with a chin-mounted Heavy Bolter and the kit contains options for either wing-mounted Hellstrike missiles or multiple rocket pods, allowing the pilot to strafe a hot drop zone before deploying its cargo.This complete resin and plastic hybrid kit, designed by Will Hayes, uses sprues from the plastic Valkyrie.

You can view more pictures of the Sky Talon here, and it is available to order here for immediate release.
Full rules and background for the Sky Talon will be included in the forthcoming Imperial Armour 8.

Ork Kill Bursta and Kill Blasta ‘Eavy Tanks
Ork Kil BlastaThese two fearsome machines of destruction are variants on the Kill Krusha, nefarious brainchild of the Murda Meks of Tigrus. Both new kits come with a highly characterful Ork commander and Grot communication system, as well as additional turrets for even more dakka.
With typical Ork ingenuity, Mekboys often nail huge rams and bulldozer blades to the front of what are collectively known as Kill Tanks – all the better to crush and bludgeon the enemy as these brutal vehicles plough through even the heaviest fire.

These huge models are hulking, slab-sided armoured behemoths: each model is around 10’’ long, 5’’ wide, and 5’’ high – take a look at the picture galleries below to see these new Kill Tanks compared to other kits in the Warhammer 40,000 range.

The Kill Bursta mounts a huge-bore Kannon capable of destroying bunkers and siegeworks with ease – the calibre of its devastating shells are such that a single round has even been known to tear the leg from a scout-class Titan (although this could be as much down to luck than the skill of the tanks crew). More pictures of the Kill Bursta can be found here.

The Kill Blasta mounts an insane array of Shootas, Gatlers and rapid-firing Kannons, collectively called a Giga-Shoota. This arsenal of dakka is wired to fire at the same time, engulfing anything unlucky enough to be within range in a fury of shot and shell, leaving nothing but scorched earth and fragments of flesh and armour. More pictures of the Kill Blasta can be found here.

Both Kill Tanks are full resin kits designed by Darren Parwood, with crew sculpted by Mark Bedford, and are available to order here for immediate release.
Full rules and background for both the Kill Blasta and Kill Bursta will be included in the forthcoming Imperial Armour 8.

Forge World Open Day 2010
Remember, remember March 28th – the fourth annual Forge World Open Day. This great event will be held at Warhammer World here in Nottingham. Doors will open at 10am and the show will close at 4pm, and admission is completely free!
Our whole Studio design team will be showcasing lots of work-in-progress models and artwork, and you will be able to get your first look at proof copies of the forthcoming Imperial Armour Volume 8; Raid on Kastorel-Novem.

This year’s event will be the debut of a brand new Apocalypse participation game, featuring a Titan battlegroup squaring off against a deadly Ork Stompa mob, as well as other fantastic games.
The Open Day will also see the unveiling of our brand new Show-Only model for 2010 – more details will follow in future Newsletters, but for now all we can tell you is that it’s an incredible figure!

We are currently taking reservation orders for the Open Day. Our sales stand will carry a wide range of Forge World kits, but you also can place a reservation order. This is the best way of getting exactly what you want, as we will ensure your order is packaged up and waiting for you at the Reservation point on our stand – you will be able to collect it at any point across the day, which means that you can spend more time enjoying the rest of the show.

News: GW Newsletter - Orcs & Goblins Incoming

View Comments
Hello all, just had this GW newsletter hit the inbox! Orcs & Goblins are going to be getting some serious attention in the near future!


The Games Workshop Newsletter 28.02.2010
In this issue: More Orcs & Goblins coming in May

More Orcs & Goblins coming in May

Orcs & Goblins are the scourge of the Warhammer world, an unending tide of ferocious raiders. For every greenskin Waaagh! defeated on the field of battle, another arises to trample a swathe of destruction across the land. Orcs and Goblins live to fight!

Orcs & Goblins are one of the most popular Warhammer armies and it's not difficult to see why: they can field warriors of all shapes and sizes from tiny Snotlings to Giants, and every shape of Orc and Squig in-between. They have access to a bizarre array of war machines and mounts, and some of the most entertaining special rules of any Warhammer army. And thanks to their inclusion in the great-value Battle for Skull Pass set, are often the first army a hobbyist collects.

So this May we're celebrating the Orcs & Goblins in all their choppa-wielding glory. We're under orders from the Big Boss to keep quiet about exactly what's going on so be sure to check out games-workshop.com in April when all will be revealed and pick up May's issue of White Dwarf for an in-depth look at all things green.

News: GW Newsletter - War of the Rings Battalions

View Comments
Hi all, another GW newsletter, this time shedding some light on upcoming releases for WotR.


The Games Workshop Newsletter 02.14.2010
In this issue: Incoming! War of the Ring: Battlehosts

Incoming! War of the Ring: Battlehosts

In May the armies of Middle-earth march to war, the mightiest heroes of the War of the Ring at their head. These fighting formations are known as battlehosts, powerful units comprising groups of legendary warriors and great heroes that are far greater than the sum of their parts. War of the Ring: Battlehosts is an 80-page supplement, detailing all that you need to know to include battlehosts in your own army. There are battlehosts included for every army, from the Riders of the Westfold to Dalamyr's Corsairs, so no matter what faction you collect, there's a battlehost for you. The book is also packed with new fortunes and fates and loads of great hobby advice for modelling and painting your own distinctive battlehosts.

As well as the supplement, Battlehosts will be accompanied by a fantastic range of Citadel miniatures. All will be revealed in April's issue of White Dwarf magazine, and on the Games Workshop web site, so keep an eye out for more information.

News: GW Newsletter - Advance Orders Battle Missions

View Comments
Hey all, another GW newsletter is out and this one is actually packed with upcoming releases. It is nice to see Battle Missions stuff coming up for preorder and there certainly are some cool releases that coincide with the expansion. The plastic venerable dreadnaught looks great. For Ork players, having plastic deff dreads and killa kans is going to be awesome! The new Imperial Guard releases are a bit of a letdown. First we have the new Chimera which mainly features cosmetic changes - yes it is nice to have the various turret options, but it does not look like they are including the tank upgrade sprue anymore which will be a bit annoying if you want to deck out your Chimeras with heavy stubbers etc. The big failure here is the new Basilisk kit. It was rumored that there would be a 2-1 or 3-1 kit that would feature a Basilisk, Medusa, Griffon or Bombard since they all share the same chassis and are virtually identical save for the different guns. It really would not have been difficult for GW to fit 2-3 different guns onto the sprue and offer up an amazing kit that would make mulitple tanks - they did manage this with the Russ Demolisher kit which turned out to be excellent. This really seems like a step backwards and throws into question the release of these other variants. Will they remain FW only? Is GW going to release a kit for each individual tank? (seems stupid but this is GW...). Considering that the Basilisk really is not on anyone's favorite list right now, it seems silly to release it as a solo kit. What do you guys think?

News: GW Six Months Results

View Comments
Hi all, GW has just released their regular 6 months financial report. Check it out here.

All in all, they have seen increased profit and revenue but overall there is a decline in sales. The usual doom and gloom predictions one can read about the future of GW do not seem to be the case, at least for the forseeable future. It will be important to watch if they will be introducing another round of price increases anytime soon. Your thoughts?

Hey all, Slick here. Another Mantic newsletter just hit the ol inbox. Not too much new here, although it is nice to see some painted pics of their Undead minis. Also, Mantic has added Paypal. I like the bit about 'the customers spoke and so we listened' (paraphrase). I wish a certain other company would do that more often, don't you?

The dead rise once again...
now in colour!


With the Undead launch fully under way and the skeletons shipping to the four corners of the globe, the flurry of Undead content continues.

Conflict in Colour has been busy again and have given us 20 painted skeleton models. Mark couldn't resist adding in the odd conversion or two, and he's really highlighted what Mantic sprues are all about - they are fun, characterful and full of modelling potential! We've got a picture of the figures "at the painting table" on our blog, but for now, here's a sneak peek!


Photographs of the painted regiment will make it to the website in the next couple of days, and the guys from the Army Painter are working on a huge Undead Legion. Until then, we have put up images of the plastic skeletons to everything from Mhorgoth's Undead Army, to the Skeleton Regiment set, in the Undead section of the shop, and there's more in the Book of the Dead.
Mantic goes international

Mantic is going to be featuring heavily in the next issue of Tabletop Insider Magazine. As it's in German, we've created this page here for all of you where German is your first language. Have a read!

Update: Paypal

The masses spoke, and so Mantic reacted. In an effort to improve your shopping experience, we now have Paypal for countries outside of the UK.
Fast, safe and secure, paypal lets you shop without having to use a card, for total piece of mind.
