I like the Dreadfiend. Could be useful in plenty of different games.

The Dreadfiend is pretty neat. Looks like some sort of alien life form you could encounter in Deadzone or Star Saga.

At first I thought the Soulflayers were just riding spectral horses... then I looked a bit closer. Very cool and disturbing! Heck, you could probably get away with using them as some sort of chaos steed if you painted them in more mortal colors.

I wonder if the Veer Myn stuff is a straight 1:1 switch to fantasy or if they'll make any optional parts for them?

at the moment, some Nightstalkers make perfect Nameless replacements to get less fishy and more horror in Deadzone

And in other news, the french version of Kings of War V3 will finally be there since the crowdfunding for it ended today with a success to fund it. It's not up to Mantic kickstarter standard, but it's still 42000 € for "just a book".

Good news for the french community, giving hope for a renewal for them after quite a lot of silence from the french distributor !

Hey everyone, Ronnie here!

Hope you’re all staying safe and healthy. Although the UK is starting to very slowly come out of the lockdown, it’ll be some time before we can get back to gaming as usual at stores or clubs. On the plus side, it gives us more time to finish off those lockdown hobby projects that we haven’t quite managed to complete. I’ve really appreciated the time to get some hobbying done and I hope you’ve been kept busy too. Even my two boys have caught the hobby bug… although it could just be an excuse to avoid homeschooling.

During the Virtual Open Day (a reminder of all the exciting announcements can be found below), I mentioned that I wanted to make sure we said thank you to all the keyworkers around the world that have been working tirelessly since the outbreak. It can’t have been easy working in some very difficult conditions and during the pandemic, we’ve come to rely on your incredible work more than ever. We've already offered free rules (check the free rules section) and discounted solo play games but I wanted to do something more.

As a thank you I wanted to offer a discount code for the Mantic website. I genuinely believe hobbying has a part to play in keeping people entertained and engaged in these strange times. Having some extra miniatures to paint or a rulebook to peruse while in lockdown, helps to take our minds off the reality of what’s happening in the world at the moment. Giving us our own safe space to relax. So, a discount code to help pick up a few more hobby products is our way of saying thank you.

When we started to look at the list of keyworkers we wanted to say thank you to, the list quickly started to grow very large. Whether you’re a health worker, police officer, retail worker, delivery driver, garbage collector, postal worker, teacher, etc., we really wanted to thank you all. Then you’ve got the parents probably tearing their hair out at home while homeschooling or the people living on their own in need of some entertainment. Plus, the people who really just want the anticipation of that exciting delivery coming to keep them going through some difficult days.

It soon became clear that we wanted to thank everyone – particularly those who have supported Mantic during the outbreak and ensured that we can keep trading (all be it with a reduced staff). So that means we’re extending the thank you code to you all!

Seriously, watching your hobby updates throughout the outbreak has really put a smile on our faces and helped us get through some of the darker days. Meanwhile, the community atmosphere of the Virtual Open Day on Saturday was a great reminder of what superb fans we have. And I can’t wait to hang out with you again.

So, until the end of May, you can use the code ‘THANKYOU’ on the Mantic website to get 15% off your order. *The code can only be used on Mantic products and can’t be used on products that are already on sale. And we’re keeping the free shipping minimum spend at just £25/€30/$50 during this period too.

Thanks again for all your support during the outbreak, it means a lot to everyone here at Mantic.

Thank you and hopefully see you all again soon,

Run out of models to paint? Not even started but can’t admit it to anyone? Want to actually play some games?

We are looking to add to a playtesting group for something exciting we have in the pipeline (not a clue). We are looking for people who can commit to gaming, and have the time to play some test games using the Vassal platform. In this time of social distancing, playtesting is moving online!

If you are interested you need to:

- be able to play at least one game per week
- provide constructive and thorough feedback
- be on Facebook so you can join the playtest group page (well you're reading this so hopefully that's an easy one)
- have experience of Mantic games, especially those set in Pannithor, and preferably a good solid background in gaming in general

If selected, you will need to sign an NDA before any details of the project will be revealed.

If you would like to be considered, please submit a brief application to playtestfeedback@manticgames.com detailing your credentials and worthiness by Friday, May 22nd.

what I could think of, is that Mantic just changed plans for the summer campaign because of CoV19 and now want to bring a different book first that was meant to come next year

or this is something for the very future and is about the next expension after CoK21

Well of Souls - new release

https://www.manticgames.com/games/new/forces-of-the-abyss-well-of-souls/

£40 seems rather steep to me though. Could be huge though. Difficult to tell from the pic on my tablet.

Edit: Wierd. I'm sure it said £39.99 when I went to the page, it's now £29.99
Certainly a better price. Wonder if there was a typo when it went up. Or I could just be losing my marbles.

Its on a 50mm base, so the price is mostly the resin-tax. Luckily no player would ever need to own more than one, so it isn't horrible.

Terrific unit though, whatever model one uses to represent it. I use a Contorted Epitome from Slaanesh, personally.

Battle of Ravenwood

Who thought that was a good name for a starter set.......Besides CMoN for Wrath if Kings

Wonder if that could be a lawsuit .

I get that they put an S in the middle, still.

Having googled Ravenwood, it seems to be a very common place name, and even the name of a prominent Indiana Jones character. It’s fairly generic. I assume both companies chose the name due to the associations between ravens and death/carrion/war. The more surprising use to me was the Ravenwood Senior Living Center. Now that’s some bad juju.

Complete the circle you must.

I'm a sucker for two player starter sets. Even when I've got more than enough material to already play the game, especially if it's a good deal.

King’s Wood: Raw Wrath is probably already a franchise opener.

Besides the Goblins, have we heard anything about the Ogre release? They were supposed to be getting a Vanguard starter too.

Still wish Ogres weren't going to be stuck with the knock- kneed sculpts but at least there's some new resin models on the horizon.

Ogres are supposed to be end of June and the new Goblin Warband (reboxed with the new HIPS Goblins) end of July but how much that’s slipped due to Covid 19?

I've said before that Mantic should make a HIPS Ogre regiment its top priority, since it's already the most beginner friendly army in terms of model count (and dare I say, painting) it would make sense to make it in the best material and have it be the default beginner army, plus one sprue could service almost all the units.
