You've had the Mantic kit for years. But these are more similar to the GW kit, what with the farming equipment and all.


He said good. The Mantic ones are meh, fair at best. I'll take the GW Zeds over Mantic all day, every day.


Blackhoof wrote:GW zombies are abysmal imo, comically bad. Mantic zeds are superb, but these ones look just as good. A different flavour too, with more clothes, weapons and add-ons (like the crow).
Looking forward to seeing the soldier zombies!


GW Zombies are how many years old? 15 years?

I am not a fan of Mantic zombies, not much of fan of most Mantic miniatures. These Fireforge zombies look good, almost as good as their Norhern warriors. I really prefer these "style" (more heroic) than their historical mini's. I think they are using a different sculptor? I wouldn't mind that all Fireforge mini's are done in this style from now on.

I would love to back this and maybe I will, but these are probably a mid to late 2019 release and it's not that I have money to spare with all those great GW releases right now and in the future.. .

They painted up well, I can see 100 odd of them in my future (or whatever multiple comes in a box)

The toes could do with better definition.

The hands are pretty good, so I'm not sure why they saved time on the feet. But in a horde of 20-60 Zombies, I don't think it matters much. The rest of the model is like a today's version of the GW kit, so I'm pretty excited.

If you view at a more normal size, the toes don't look too bad, though they are big feet! Once you get a groundwork and some tufts on the base they should be less noticeable.

now that's how you do undead cavalry!

Those horses are also going to end up in some Hexwraiths as they match the new night haunt designs better.



Box sets contents are confirm at 12 Infantry or 6 Cavalry but they already said they will be cheaper than their current boxes due to lower figure count.

I think I've finally found a replacement for my lovingly kitbashed from GW Empire Knights and Grave Guard undead cavalry.

I put a lot of work into those fellows, but as my undead army incorporates more and more non-GW models, the scale and bat-hat aesthetic is feeling more and more off. These will fit in much better!

Those skeleton cavalry look great. Like psychopomp the 'bat-hat' aesthetic of GW skellies has always bothered me, like they were kitted out to be fighting in an undead army before they died (which only really works for Sylvanian militia themed forces or similar) or the vampire/necromancer summoning them has bothered to kit them out with 'spooky' gear. They should really be the dead of other armies and equipped/dressed as such. Which makes these perfect.

Spoiler:

They're not galloping through the air on twenty foot streamers of smoke-energy-stuff while waving their weapons around their heads, so I'm not sure how much they do fit with AoS undead

Seriously though, they look fantastic, but I'm more an infantry and characters man.

Zombie soldiers look good.

Last armored zombies I can recall were in Confrontation. That was... a while ago.

Chronopia also had armoured zombies.... a long time ago.

I imagine Armour would'nt actually make a zombie much harder to kill, so statwise I would just run them the same as non-armoured zombies.

While Kings of War does not have armored zombies, players can use what figures they like provided they are not deceptive (i.e. have wings that imply they are a flying unit when they are not etc). So it is a matter of taste. An unit of mostly peasant zombies with some scattered soldier zombies mixed in would look nice. Alternately, use the armored zombies as Revenants, the "elite" Undead soldiers who actually have a decent "to hit" and defense.

Since they are knock-kneed and pigeon-toed, in KOW they could pass for ogres.
Ouch! But true.

I like both kinds of zombies a lot.

And yeah, I would say use the armored soldier ones as Grave Guard / KoW Revenants. The peasant ones could be zombies (duh) or ghouls.

I would have preferred some Fireforge-quality skeletons, but you know...plastic armored zombies is a thing we don't have already! I don't know what I would use them for outside Forgotten World, though.
