@Vit: Yep, that's the one! Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to order it... at lest not from the U.S.

O.K. So just in case disaster strikes, I assembled my army for tomorrow and took a shot. 1000 pts with some models not complete or proxied. Have an old tech marine standing in for the MoTF. Have the GMS marines standing in for my tac squads & my old, original commanders standing in for my squad sergeants (which I'd remember'd I'd had them... I'd use them as my squad sergeants for Adepticon... Hmmm... with a re-paint maybe I still can.. one les fig for WM to build). You can zoom in about two clicks before the resolution starts to fall apart.



Wish me luck! (I'll need it.)

I joined just to post in this thread.

Loving the minis and I love Mantis Warriors.

I can't tell from the picture of the new forgeworld book whether the 'new' yellow shoulders are part of the general colour scheme or veteran specific.

Heya increaso! Thanks for speaking up! I think it's because the original Mantis Warrior scheme had the mantis head on a yellow circle (most of the old badges were on circular backgrounds). That doesn't really work with the modern Mk-7 armor so they've just modified it so that the mantis head is on a yellow field.

Since I'm doing "old school" mantis warriors for my Adepticon army, I'm still using the yellow circle as the background. The shoulder pad that I've chosen for my "modern", post-crusade Mantis Warrior army has a reddish purple background instead of yellow. That purple is the color associated with repentance or penitence across many Judeo-Christian religions. Thus, my "Mantis Warriors Penitent" use a purple field as a visible reminder to others that they have repented their transgressions of the Badab War and will remain true to the Emperor. Similarly, the gold chain on the new pads is an old chivalric symbol signifying fealty to their lord, the Emperor of Mankind.


@fatty: THAT sounds like a fun list! Been working on a kan list myself but I always get distracted by other projects. How are you deff dreads armed?



I'm surprised no one's commented on the display base in the middle. It's flocked, eventually it'll get shrubbery and tall grass and will be the display base for the full sternguard/tranquility sniper unit. Looks really good with them on it even without any foliage. Might get more of these for the rest of my infantry.

I noted and liked the idea of the display board - just didn't comment! Looking forward to how you jazz it up. I'm in the habit of using card trays to ferry my Orks from off table to on (and back again in the event they have a Trukk to re-embark on!) to speed things up - and was considering doing something similar - in the far future!

@Boss: Paint job isn't done yet. The ram has a *lot* of battle damage on it that is yet to be painted.

The Iron Cad was a 175 point single-shot melta. Never got into combat, died on turn 2 every game. Sternguard with MoTF was a little better, but too few to really accomplish much more than being a speed bump.

So it's back to the drawing board. If I pull the Iron Clad, I can also pull the MoTF for a better commander and at least 2 of the pods if not all 3. Depends on where I go with the list.

Can't help you out with everything, but that sounds like you didn't use the ironclad to maximum effect. Every time I have one drop in, it forces me to use lots of resources to get rid of it, and even then it can survive till turn three. I find that the most annoying ironclad drops are on a flank, near ab unch of vehicles that should be moving forward, preferably with assault troops. That means the ironclad has decent chance of being splatted, but that he'll pull cc elements out of position. Guess what happens tot he cc troops' transports...

That's what we tried with it, but there is so much melta in the meta-game now that none of our opponents had any problems dispatching it in one shooting phase.
