Yeah maybe mine is just some horrible misprint and the rest are fine. I'll try to get some pics.

Shadow Hulk would look legit if he weren't wrapped in rags. That paintjob is tight.

Here is a pic you can kinda see it. All of the grey and a lot of the browns are neon pink on the whole mat. It's actually much worse in person; camera doesn't pick up how bad it is...

Anyone else experience this? Just want to know if I got a misprint, or if this is just the product Mantic is selling.

I was gonna say it's just garbage, but I'm thinking now that maybe I could use it to represent the land where the nightstalkers came from or something. I haven't read the lore yet.

Paper is on the left and looks nice. Deluxe mat is on the right.

If you're not happy with it, you shouldn't have to make do. Mantic owes you a replacement or a refund.

Kow/Vanguared seminar stream kept crashing so I gave up but nothing really mentioned that wasn't covered 2 weeks ago.

Next KS is likely to be Terraincrate 2 which will cover the rest of the fantasy/D&D stuff they want to do and some modern as well.

Mentioned as themes
- Gothic style house
- Graveyard
- Village
- Ruins
- Campsites
- Shopping Mall

Scatter type terrain rather buildings.

They have plans for up to 8 HIPS units but aren't sure if they will do them 1 at a time or do a KS for all of them in one go but it would be a purely HIPS KS nothing else (those at the seminar favoured the KS as do I )

and the Fiends

Don't forget the wine cellar!

Sucks about your mat domobomb, it kinda looks like one of the colour tanks ran out during printing so the rocks ended up pink, rather than whatever they mixed with/over it to make the grey stones.

Grays going purple is a common issue with mousepad mats, I've seen it happen to all manufacturers. No idea why. You should definitely complain about it tho.

It actually looks a bit better than anticipated, and I don't think all of that is Angel's dark magicks. It's impressively tall, and makes me wonder if the shulk is getting an updated profile, given that I think we're getting new rules for the uber-giant. IMO the shulk has pretty great stats already, but I can't imagine the nu-giant won't be markedly better, for being so much bigger. Also I'm feeling like my two own two shulks in the making are far too small now

Nice to see all the NS stuff painted and in one place, the line is coming together nicely. Well done Mantic.

That thing is a crime against taste. The paintjob can’t save it.

I might get the Shadow Hulk...

But it would become a giant, while the head and spiky bits get attached to something else. (The Shadow Hulk dragon mock up looked a lot better than the Shadow Hulk itself.)

Great giant, but not a good fit for the role.

Seeing it painted up they should have gone more with a route showing it to be a giant mutated or possessed in some way so the clothing doesn't look stupidly out of place.

I think the Giant is a really nice kit...but...the conversion, knowing how its made just makes me think "Oh that's a Giant with a fish hat..."

I like it. I won't get it as it has no place on my table, but I wouldn't kick it out of bed for eating crisps.

has anyone converted the old MAA with GCPs arms?


You mean the Mantic sci fi troops? Yes. I'll try to find them this weekend.


yes. if you could snap a photo that would be lovely.


I finally found them! I'll throw in some other minis for scale, such as a regular GCPS, a Star Saga GCPS, a Heresylab commissar, and some PDF converted from GCPS and WGF WWII USSR.

Are the guns all Mantic?

I'm liking the sheer variety of guys you've come up with.

I look forward to fighting them and rolling horribly and getting myself tabled by the second turn like the last time we fought each other.

Now paint some of them!

No, she is from Heresy Lab. They had a recent Kickstarter to reprint her and a number of other not-40k and not-Star Wars heroines. They probably have a late pledge option, and if not you could try emailing them to buy them directly.

*Grumble, grumble, gripe* Our Vanguard/Kings of War League has been pushed back until after the holidays....

It seems that people are expecting to get minis from Santa this year.... (So far three have 'hired'/'asked'/'extorted' me to paint leaders for their significant others.... Dwarf, Abyssal Dwarf,and Basilean. The Abyssal Dwarf is for the Junior League.)

Just as well - it gives Megan and I a chance to get a few more practice games in.

The Auld Grump

*EDIT* The Abyssal Dwarfs were also used in her Pathfinder campaign, as duergar. She is being raised properly - and finding multiple uses for her minis. Sam may be only ten years old, but she really knows where her towel is.

Very good, I am happy with my Vanguard list at the moment, but new units (such as an Orc bowmen) would be nice.

I always liked the originals. They served their purpose well.

No need for 100 of them though.
