On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

Hey guys,

In an effort to get some conversation going in this section of the forum ,the thread title says it all really - just wondered how many points people have collected and what they have used them for?

At the moment I'm torn between saving them for a character, buying the dwarf with a drill (even though I would have no use for it, it's quite a cool model!) and blowing them on something like a mug, although that seems like a bit of a waste!

For those who have no idea what I am talking about: http://www.manticgames.com/Shop-Home/Mantic-Points.html

I think I have 70 or so - I just haven't got round to sending them in. I'm after the thinking elf general (I also wanted the Morgoth undead chap but it looks like they have taken him out of the rewards now). I will probably settle for some of the Warpath character models instead.

So far I've spent 35 of them, on the Orc Shaman for 25, and the elf scout champion for 10. Saving the other 50 or so for now until I see whatever else I like the look of (plus you still have to pay postage, so it pays to wait and get a few things at once). Might redeem them at the next open day.

Really impressed with the Orc Shaman, it's a really hefty 1-piece metal cast and a very dynamic sculpt.

I'm eyeing up the dwarf driller in future since the rules for them in KoW are quite fun. I also want the posters and keyrings as well. Focusing on getting the goodies that are exclusive to mantic points first, rather than the ones that are up for general sale.

The mantic points are really cool, it's just like GW's skullz program that they ran back in the day.

It was fun peeling off all the stickers and sticking them on a card to send away. Reminded me of when I was little, back when crisp packets and cereal boxes always came with cut-out coupons to save up and buy things with.

I have over 50. I have spent ten on a pack of metal elf cloaks, with a duplicate order in mind for when i expand my elves. Right now I am attempting to paint up my backlog.

Look at our profits, now look at our sales, now look back at our profits. Sadly, sales numbers aren't in line with our profits, but it could be, now that we've introduced FINECAST(tm), slashed staff and raised prices. Look at my hand, its our annual report... look again, the report is now DIAMONDS. Anything is possible when you invest with GW. (I'm issuing a dividend.)

I sent 25 off for the Thinking Elf. Very nice.

After a couple of weeks I emailed Mantic as nothing had arrived. I got a reply saying they had not recieved my tokens, full kudos to Mantic though, they sent it anyway. Cracking mini and cracking cust service.

I think I lost all mine. Yay for easily-lost little stickers instead of points attached to your customer account!

Haha yes I know what you mean.. I found a couple wedged down the side of my bits box, and it makes me wonder where else I may have lost them!

There is a certain charm to it though, reminds me of collecting tokens from Weetabix boxes, then waiting 28 days for them to send me a matchbox car.

In the Mhorgoth Revenge I got 4, in the 4 Dwarf council pack 1, and the Dwarf starter about 4. Maybe one day I will get the Dwarf Driller, but daaaaam! 25 points LOL.
