Price increases are never nice, but being told about them inadvance does take the sting out of them somewhat.
Same. I also took it as a sign to mass buy the all/mostly Mantic army I've been waffling on

Otherwise, Mantic Games sent a mail to those who bought on their webstore in the year to give a -15% off code to use before 31/07/21.

Since I won't use mine (taxes for importing in EU doesn't make it that interesting to me, sadly), here it is for the first to see and use it :

"15% OFF YOUR NEXT WEBSITE ORDER
Until July 31st, enter the code below at checkout to get 15% off your order*. This is our little way of saying thank for purchasing from the Mantic website over the past year. We really appreciate your support and we definitely have some of the best fans in tabletop gaming."


Hope it makes someone happy.

A cool new Ratkin STL kickstarter just dropped that's close to GW style but includes some KoW specific units like rat cavalry. I think there's also some way to get physical prints.

There’s a thread dedicated to that Kickstarter:

And, yes, you can order physical prints if you don’t have access to a quality 3D printer. I’ve ordered both wolf rats and rat swarms from them in the past and they’re very nice models.

a 10$ Patreon usually also does not care if you can resin cast what he designs or how well those work with different scales

but not sure about the flyers, phoenix looked good, but guess this was not a render

need to see them in resin first

Why is everything so fat

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

If they did that, then they would have to update all their old models as well so we could have all decent looking models instead of what they currently offer. But since they are model agnostic with their rules you are more than capable of using whatever you find that fits.

Armada isn't model agnostic. It is meant and designed to be played with Mantic miniatures.

They look in line with what they produced before, to me. Sure, flock of gargoyles feels a bit too busy, but well...at this scale and if it meant to be used as a single unit, you don't have a lot of choices so that it's still convenient to be played with the game system.

It's funny to me that the nightmare ship's hulk is really nightmarish and tortured, but the sails are perfectly smooth. I know, they use standard sails here for convenience, but I was expecting screaming faces all over their surface as well.

Oops didn't realize the flyers were Armada models as well, if they're the size of a thumbnail that's a different matter. The ship has an identity crisis for sure tho.

I took a look at Wayland and the mega army seems heavy on the normal infantry. I didn't see any of the ogre riders that iirc were previewed in this thread some pages back.

I sure do wish they'd gone with something more interesting than the traditional Basilean sails for their Twilight Kin ships. That's a bit of a bummer.

Would love to see Thingverse alternatives for sails, but can't find any alternatives (wasn't really expecting to find any... "weird fantasy sails" isn't really a big demand...)

I play...

Sigh.

The dog riders are quite cute, I like where they've gone with the theme on this one.

Mantic's first HIPs cavalry too, which is great to see, I hope they're able to go back and do something similar for the rest of their armies once everything gets a full army release (just Herd, Twilight Kin and Varangur waiting now).

Two units in HIPs means that the army box is still a great deal (40 infantry, 20 cavalry, monster and hero) even after the price rise.

They look really good painted up, and fittingly these might be some of the only Mantic units that you can easily run at Full Model Count I continue to appreciate the unexpected doggo factor, looking forward to the maniac who does an entire army of dog cav

That Halfling army is quite charming! Not looking to start another army, but if I was I would strongly consider it. So different from what's out there already but still true to a halfling aesthetic and it has -and hopefully will retain- a more unified aesthetic and higher level of quality than some of the earlier armies.

Not a huge fan of the Ogre lawn mower, but that'd just be an easy and fun chance to model up some interesting warmachine with an alternative propulsion system.

I am really liking the top hat and the muskets. And the engineer with the anti-materiel rifle. I am tempted to get some to use as Gnomes rather than Halflings. I hope they kitbash well with Wargames Atlantic Halflings.

Really love them.

They can also be easily converted with some bitz, it'll definitely be a hit for other game systems as well.

Hope they have a big stock ready !

I like them, but I'd also like to see them next to various manufacturer's humans.

I'd like a better idea of whether they'd be halflings or three-quarterlings alongside my collection.
