They did a great job with those Heroes, really catching the brutality of the faction

Now we just need HIPS core troops or at least new designed PVC ones

I'm digging those ogres. Don't know how I missed them yet.

I always liked Mantic's ogres with their reddish hued skin. Remy's original sculpt work was really nice, and most of the detail carried over to the restic guys.

With the arrival of the abyssal dwarf plastic sprue I certainly wouldn't mind actual plastics but I don't see that happening soon.

The goblin mounts are still a bit goofy, but they're way better than the old ones.

I like the Kamehameha mage.

Kings of War just keeps getting better, and I am so happy that it keeps entrenching itself as a staple game in our hobby. There's just something about it, and how it helps me see other model lines and get inspired to port them over to KoW armies.

That said, I feel like its time I consider building an all Mantic model army. They've improved so much from modest beginnings and stuff like the Northern Alliance really appeals to me... and not just because of my brief history with Mantic (which I am still super proud of).

Man those goblins are sweet. I hope they translate into plastic well.

I love seeing Mantic continue to grow and succeed. The new goblins look great, and I can't wait to see what is in the future for Mantic. The KoW third edition box has been tempting me for a long time

Damn. Those really are nice looking goblins.

GT Studio does make nice ones but I found them kinda fiddly, but I am curious to see the new ones in the flesh. Hopefully they all scale nicely together.

Considering how nice the Aybssals turned out, I have high hopes for these. Those plastic Abyssals are really solid!

Those are great! What a funny twist where Mantic is producing better classic WHF stuff than GW, who abandoned that line and world in favor of the more fantastic Warcraft style hyper fantasy.
Ratkin vs Goblins of this quality would be a great box set.

What the hell is Mantic trying to do to me? First, some excellent Chaos Dwarf stuff...then some really nice chaff for the Chaos Dwarves in the form of Goblins that actually look good...and now Skaven?

Damn. I can hear the future screams of my wallet.

If you haven't gotten a copy of 3rd ed Uncharted Empires, you might like to know that there is a Ratkin Slave theme list which uses the Abyssal Dwarfs as the Master list. So instead of Slave Orcs, you have Ratkin Slaves and the "not-Rat Ogres".

Wow those goblin foot look fantastic, not keen at all on the mounts of the cavalry but they are a lot better than they used to be.

That rat looks snazzy as can be. The bone jaw thing is a bit odd to me but the other option looks great!

realism is a lie

New gobbos look decent. So chunky, they could be Tolkieney orcs.

The rats look like stunty werewolves with buck teeth, but that's what was established with the old-style GW skaven, so horses for courses.

Though, looking at those things poking out of the back of the warlock's neck and it's skull-staff... are they meant to be horns, or some kind of rat-tails?

More Ogre previews have dropped as well (couple repeated here for completeness / bigger photos):


Matriarch


Berserker Bully


Paymaster


Siegebreakers

Am I wrong thinking the siege shields seem a bit out of sorts with the Ogre line? Are they supposed to be Abyssal Dwarf-related, maybe? Or is there more of this filigree in the Mantic Ogre line and I don't know about it?

Loving those hero models, but loath the Siege-Breakers which mark the return of skipped-leg-day-Ogres. I though those days were behind us... :-(

Not feeling the heroes, TBH. They're a vast improvement over the old Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye ogres, but I'm getting an impression of someone making third-party figurines of GW-style orcs. (With a bit of Blizzard-style orc thrown in)

Also, dislike the ultra-mega-dynamic pose of the axe guy. "Oh soddit, I'm caught on me own shoelaces!"

... and they all have exactly the same face.

Gimme a couple of minutes, I'll think up half a dozen other complaints.

My guess is that the siegebreakers are not entirely new models, but rather an upgrade kit like the Ogre command kit.
