News: Mantic Newsletter


Hey all, another Mantic newsletter comes our way. Not too much 'new' stuff here although they are offering a 10% discount just for signing up for the newsletter! Quite the deal compared to GW's usual idea of a sale. The newsletter also has a nice picture of a painted elf army and I must say it looks good. Not sure why some people take issue with the look of Mantic's minis. It is refreshing to see a fantasy miniature that is the typical GW version of an elf. Enough rambling, here is the newsletter:

Mantic Games Newsletter
Pimp my Box - it is Design-a-sleeve Competition time!

Continuing with the cases theme, we've posted a new video on the blog demonstrating how you can personalise your boxes, and also showing off our downloadable inlays. Definitely worth a watch, even if it is only to see a rather excitable Ronnie!

Check it out here.

The Army of Maccwar

We're seeing more and more pictures of painted Elves hit the interwebs and this pic certainly caught our eye. Painted and photographed by Maccwar, this army is built from an Elven Warhost and a Kings Court set.


More pictures from Maccwar's army will be featured in the mantic blog later on this week, so keep checking back for the latest updates!

A discount code, surely not...

We're once again offering a 10% discount with the newsletter sign-up code after the mighty response we had the first time round.

Get a friend to sign-up to the newsletter and they will receive a 10% discount code with their confirmation email. Furthermore, the code you received when you signed up initially has been reactivated (it is NEWSLET01 in case you forgot!), meaning once again you can get a tasty discount when using the webstore. Considering the new Undead Army Deals with some free minis and the Undead Pre-orders, never has there been a better time to get your hands on Mantic goodies!
