Mantic Games – Weekly Newsletter

Posted on December 8th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

New releases from Mantic Games and some Black Friday and Christmas related announcements…

Before we get started – an important announcement.The Warehouse Team is currently extremely busy dispatching orders from Black Friday and Christmas. This means that your order may take up to a week to be dispatched. We’re working as quickly as possible to have everything sent out in time for Christmas, so if you want to order something in time – make sure you stick to the final shipping dates for this year at the end of this newsletter. Look for your country and get your order in in time!

With that over with, this month you can get your hand on three great new resin miniature (or not so miniature, as the case may be) sets for Kings of War – the greater and lesser Fire Elementals and the awesome Vampire Lord on Undead Dragon… one of the biggest models we’ve ever made!

The Greater Fire Elemental is a towering flame construct that can be fielded by either the Forces of Nature or the Salamander Armies from Uncharted Empires. Since the Forces of Nature are a neutral army, this means you can ally these mighty beings alongside any other army – perfect if you want to take one of these alongside your Abyssals, for example.

They are quicker than their Earth counterparts on the tabletop, trading high defence for speed and aggression. That being said, they still have a high defence score of 5+ and Nerve stats of -/18, so they can take a considerable amount of punishment. In combat their 8 attacks have Crushing Strength (4) – enough to shatter any armour, plus they can use Breath Attack (6) in the shooting phase. Basically, get them close to either disrupt or challenge the enemy head on, but beware that like all Elementals, they are still Shambling and will need a mage with Surge nearby to keep up.

ORDER NOW!
As with the Greater Fire Elemental, the Fire Elementals can be taken in either a Forces of Nature army, or a Salamanders Army. No matter the choice, Elementals are a popular choice in both of these forces.

Like their larger brethren, these Elementals benefit from extra speed and a higher Crushing Strength than the other varieties, making them a good choice for an aggressive unit. They still have defence 5+ so will take some punishment, but they will always need to be supported – especially due to their Shambling rule. That said, a horde of 6 of these creatures can hit like a freight train (that’s on fire).

ORDER NOW!
The Vampire Lord on Undead Dragon is dangerous hero for the forces of the Undead.

At 330 points, they aren’t a cheap option, but they combine the abilities of both the winged mount and the Vampire Lord into one devastating package. They hit hard in combat with 10 attacks at melee 3+, with Crushing Strength (3) – so you can expect to deal out enough damage to take out regiments of lesser troops, while being resilient enough to survive and heal wounds with Lifeleech (2). They can also be upgraded to have ranged attacks, coming with Breath Attack (10) as standard, and being able to add Lightning Bolt (3), too.

Finally, they can act as a powerful linchpin for your army, with InspiringSurge and the option to add Heal, as well. Use these abilities to back up your main line and the mount’s awesome speed to keep in range – or go for isolated targets. But, as I always say, don’t send him out unsupported – unlike other characters a monster can be flank charged and suffer the penalties for that, so don’t let that happen! Keep the dragon’s rear protected.

ORDER NOW!

CRAZY BOXES STILL AVAILABLE!

Crazy Boxes – which are boxes filled with loads of great Mantic goodies at a low price – are available in limited numbers from the website now and will stay up until the New Year, or until they run out (which could happen very soon).

What’s more, one extra special Mega Crazy box will include a Platinum ticket to have the lucky winner sculpted as a GCPS marine! This ticket has not yet been claimed, so it’s still out there for one lucky soul to find. There are Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Mega Crazy Boxes available, so order now to avoid missing out!

ORDER NOW!
Star Saga is here and to celebrate the arrival of this Sci-Fi Dungeon Crawler, we’re dedicating the whole of next week to the game. You’ll be treated to unboxings, gameplay videos, and even more content besides, so stay tuned to the Mantic blog!

Mantic Games weekly newsletter with a Kings of War focus this time…

This week two new Kings of War monsters go on Pre-order – the indomitable Dwarf Steel Behemoth and the horrific Undead Revenant King on Undead Wyrm. We thought we’d take a look through the other large beasts in Kings of War with two Guides on the Mantic Blog!

Finally, the Mantic Open Day Tickets are now available for November, with a packed day of gaming goodness planned for all!

Steel Behemoth

These innovative fighting vehicles are powered by ingenious internal combustion engines fuelled by the black blood of the earth. Protected by thick metal plates and equipped with flame-spitting weaponry, they are a nightmare made manifest for the Dwarfs’ enemies.
This mighty Dwarven ‘Monster’ will be stomping onto tabletops soon. Cast as a multi-part, highly detailed resin kit, this vehicle fills up a 100mmx50mm base and comes with three crew to man the ‘howdah’ on its back and control the Behemoth.

Revenant King on Undead Wyrm

Wyrms are distant relations of the great drakes that inhabit the mountains of Mantica. Ferocious and tough, they adapt quickly to suit their environment, giving rise to the sea-wyrms of the Naiads, or the sand-wyrms found in the deserts of the south. Ancient human kings favoured these creatures as mighty steeds and were often buried with them, only to be resurrected to fight once again.
Nothing says being in charge like riding a massive undead predator and this Revenant King is covered in that sense. This detailed miniature is huge, mounted on a 75mm square base, and is covered in decaying flesh, exposed bones and organs and diamond-hard scales. If that wasn’t enough, you can also pick up a set of equally decayed wings, so that your Wyrm can take to the sky in games of Kings of War!

Monstrous Deals

Inspired by the new monster kits, we’ve put together a group of bundle deals, perfect for getting started with Kings of War for the first time, or picking up a new army. The concept is simple, you get either an Army or Mega Army, a cool Monster and a FREE Kings of War Game’s Edition Rulebook – all in one easy package.
You can choose from either Dwarfs (Steel Behemoth), Elves (Tree Herder), Abyssal Dwarfs (Greater Obsidian Golem), Forces of the Abyss (Archfiend) and Undead (Revenant King on Undead Wyrm). In each case, you save a small amount on purchasing this separately.

These deals are only available until the 20th October, so order yours now to avoid disappointment!

Check them out here!

Monster Wrangling

If you’re not sure how to use you new monsters in games of King of War, then worry not. We’ve covered the basics and some specific tactics over on the Mantic Blog.
Part One of our Monster guide covers how Monsters work in general, their strengths and weaknesses and what they can bring to your game.
Part Two gives you specific uses for each of the monsters featured in the deals above, based on their stats and abilities in the game.
The Mantic Open Day is back! On the 25th November, we will be opening our doors to the public once more, for the most packed open day yet. There will be 8 hours of seminars, participation games, exclusive miniatures, a goody bag, and so much more to see and do! You can see more of what’s happening on the ticket page and book your tickets today!
