Ironwatch Issue 62 has been released!

Check out the best of the first year of Ironwatch in the Annual Year One

The Star-Struck City Deluxe Edition rules are now available.

Quarantine's Basic Edition rules are now available.

Ironwatch: Tales of Fantasy, our first short story collection, is now out.

Mawbeast Madness, our second Ironwatch Games release, is now available!

Information on how you can help submit content to this fan magazine is below!

We're starting a new Mantic fan magazine (Okayed by Mantic themselves!), similar in quality and content to the Mantic Journal, White Dwarf, or Wargaming Illustrated. The magazine will be free to download in a pdf format, and will be published once a month during the first week of the month. We're looking for your help in making this possible, as this magazine will be drawn from the best that the Mantic community has to offer! If you're interested in any of this, message me and I can invite you to the Mantic Fan Magazine group on the Mantic forums (I'll need your Mantic forum username) where we'll organize and submit articles.

Edit: Submissions email address is ironwatchmagazine@gmail.com

If you're interested, right now we're looking for:

(THE BIG THREE. We need as many of these as possible at first, as this will really help flesh out the magazine in its initial format)

1) Artists: Fan art is appreciated and welcomed!

2) Authors: Background stories, fluff, or adventures and history, whatever floats your boat!

3) Searchers: Just looking for and helping us find awesome Mantic related articles of all kinds is helpful, as we then can ask for permission to reprint their article. This includes blog posts or forums outside of the official Mantic ones.

Other help needed (No limit, so if you want to help with more than one, feel free to!):

-Editors: There will be a lot of content, and the more eyes to help us proofread it, the better!

-Rule Designers: We're hoping to include a sample of special rules each issue, to add flavor to scenarios or give fun alternative gameplay methods.

-Battle Reporters: Any battle reports you have would be great! They add a lot of flavor, especially if we can show both pictures of the battle as well as diagrams of troop placements from a program like Vassal or Battle Chronicler.

-Campaign designers: We're hoping to have an ongoing campaign in the magazine as well, with a new flavored scenario that builds off of the results of the last scenario. Players will be able to post if they won/lost and who they fought against, and so we'll need authors for the overarching story, forum people to help moderate and track the web polls, and possibly rule designers for any special rules in the scenarios.

-Comic artist: A nice ongoing comic would be a fun touch.

If you're interested, let us know and we'll invite you to the Mantic forum group. Take the opportunity to help make the Mantic community even more amazing!

Imagine the feeling when you position your tanks, engines idling, landing gear deployed for a low profile, with firing solutions along a key bottleneck. Then some fether lands a dreadnought behind them in a giant heat shielded coke can.

I like the sound of this...

Tell me, would somebody in this have to make regular articles / pictures / other for the PDF? Because while I'd quite like to help out every now and again, I don't think I can actually be a constant centre of Mantic material

Occasional content would be greatly appreciated, as every little bit helps. It;s better that we have too much material, and have to save some for the next issue, then be sparse and release a light issue instead of a normal number of articles. I've PMed you with details if you're interested

Quick note (I've also changed the OP to reflect this): You can submit articles to me via my email address in the OP. Please PM me before emailing them or post on here that you'd like to write an article so I can give you the general formatting we have (What's appropriate or not, making sure spelling is correct, making sure to include the author or artists name/forum handle, etc).

Is there anybody else who'd be helping with this from Dakkadakka?

I'll do some Scenarios, maybe with some short stories based on them, similar to the Mage Knight Collector's Guides

I'll also try to add other things if I can. Just don't ask me to take pictures of my miniatures, as both my painting quality and my camera are naff!

Ah, yes, the pony. I took the test on Equestria daily, I think.

Wanted to be Fluttershy *grumble grumble*. My mate did the test and got Fluttershy, despite wanting to control dark magic and all that rubbish :p

And ooh, cover art! Any hints as to what the first issue will have cover-wise?

^ Orc Greatax lurking in the forest amongst the gnarly trees and freaky mushrooms.

If I end up as the regular cover artist, I'll alternate between action covers and more passive, arty ones. Issue #2 has good odds of being an Enforcer Captain doing an atmospheric re-entry from space.

We've already got 5 pieces of black and white art complete, several article submissions and about 35 people signed up as contributors.

This is definitely going to be published, and very soon, article submission deadline for issue #1 is August 17th and it looks like there will be at least 2 issues worth of content submitted by that point in time.

Very nicely done first issue. Not everything in there was for me but the variety is bound to hit sweet spot for many gamers.
My favorite items were the dwarf modeling tutorial, the campaign stuff and the amazing paintjobs on the undead at the end of the book.

Thisis the sort of thing that PDFed and available for download on Mantic's site (including download link with their subscriber emails) could help get/keep people's interest.
In fact, the hobby stuff alone made into individual articles and available on Mantic's site could help draw people in who are searching for terrain and modeling ideas/help.

Keep it up, Guys!

I liked it first off, and I loved the skirmish article for KoW, the conversion for Dwarf Rangers, and the Warpath Battle report.
However, may I suggest adding more photos of the battle reports instead of maps? Or at least making the maps a little bit smaller and not as dominating on the page.

I've been looking into Mantic's stuff. I love the dwarves so once my chaos and tau are done their next on the block. My local area needs it jump started so I can gladly sign onto it (I LOVE MANTICS RULE BOOK). My strength has been in writing and I feel I can pump out all sorts of fine stories at this stage.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
All I really need is background to chew on and give myself a basis and points to relate upon and the factory will churn out the rest. My stories though are detail oriented and from there it may change upon circumstances so you are warned.

Beyond that, I also do like the idea of aiding in the creation of campaigns as well, so I shall gladly help out there.

I am interested as well. I would be more than willing to submit short stories and fan art. Is there a link or something similar we can get to start downloading it when the time comes?

It is the way of Fenris. We stay as long as we can. Fight as hard as we can. Kill as much as we can. Only when we can do no more do we move on.
