Well, I guess the announcement has actually been up on Mantic's blog for a few days now, but for those not aware, they've picked a winner from the contest held here on Dakka that ended about a week ago.

Here's the details on the winner:


We set the challenge of naming the ranged attack unit choice – formerly known as thunder rippers – in our Abyssal Dwarf range in exchange for a £50 Abyssal Dwarf Army Set containing 20 Black Souls, 10 Thunder Rippers, 10 Immortal Guard and 1 Katsuchan Rocket Launcher. Well, goodbye Thunder Rippers, hello…


Whilst there were one or two entries of the same name, our congratulations must go to the mysterious bbb, who successfully posted his suggestion first in the threada and wins an Abyssal Dwarf Army Set, including a unit of Decimators.

Well done bbb!


Thanks again to Mantic for offering a wonderful prize and thanks to everyone who took the time to submit an entry!

We expect pics of the swag.

Oh, there will be pics It might even promp me to start an army blog because I really want to get this army finished. No one I know plays Kings of War, but it's entry cost is low enough that I'm hoping I could get some people interested. My FLGS (Showcase Comics) carries the miniatures and has a healthy gaming community so there's at least a chance.

Congrats! Looking forward to pics.

I've thought about jumping into Kings of War. Low cost of entry, Free easy to learn rules, Free stats for all units. What's not to like?

Nice name, simple yet grasps the concept of the unit. I'm waiting to see how they are going to be painted, hope they look cool.

Sadly (for me) i did not won. Well... With my shipping problems chances are that the army would never arrive here anyway.

Does Mantic have a list of "runners up" or "honorable mention"?

I think Decimators is an okay name.
Far better than "Thunder rippers," which just sounds like what a pre-teen would call a fart.

Mantic just posted some new images of one of their units, the Black Souls.


I'm really looking forward to getting these minis

Right now I'm just wondering when someone will contact me for my shipping info because I'm getting antsy for some minis!
