The latest weekly newsletter from Mantic Games…

Welcome to this week’s Mantic Games newsletter. Here you’ll find all the latest information on new releases, news and special offers!
This is your last chance to participate in Crazy Bobby’s Book Bonanaza! This insane sale ends Monday, August 7th, so if you want to pick up any of these great deals, act now. With the Kings of War summer campaign, grab a copy of the Hardback Rulebook at half price and get into the Lore of Mantica. For DreadBall, the next edition is just around the corner so these drop dead prices will offer a great chance to pick up some practice games before it arrives. Finally, with Warpath and Deadzone purchase everything from the main rulebooks to the novels, all at best prices ever!
So act now, the sale is running out and you won’t want to miss this. Use the offer code CRAZY50 before August 7th.
This month sees the first armoured vehicles deployed to the Warpath universe. While the Enforcers are reinforced by the Interceptor and Persecutor, it is the Forge Father Star Realm that wields Mantic’s very first Tanks!
You can pick up the Sturnhammer (with parts to build both turrets, the Brandr and the Drakkar) here. Because we know that you’ll likely want to field a lot of Drakkar APCs(perhaps an entirely mechanised force?) we’ve also made it available separately without the Sturnhammer and Brandr turrets for a lower price. So what are you waiting for? Deploy your tanks and prepare to overwhelm your foes with their combined firepower! These high quality models are up for pre-order now, seeing release on August 18th!
The Abyss expands threatening all of Mantica! The Green Lady marshals the forces of good to turn back the tide. All the world is gathering for this climactic struggle. Shining Ones watch from the edges of their seats in anticipation!
This summer campaign will see the face of Mantica change dramatically based on your actions. Fight through 7 new scenarios with special rules to alter normal play. Purchase formations, new rules that grant special abilities to the units within them. All of Mantica is waiting for you.

Get a book and get ready. The battle begins August 21st.

This week for Tactics Tuesday, Dan King, Kings of War Rules Committee member and tournament legend, gives some advice on how to play the game competitively. You can read the full article here!
Our own Martin Thirlwell, a man who spends a lot of time on a single model, has written a blog on Zenithal highlighting, a special way of preshading a model, shown through painting the new Kings of War Hero, Eckter.
Until now, Mantic Games’ painting competition has been limited to our tournaments and the Open Day painting competitions. We are pleased to announce that the scope is widening to include an ongoing series, online. There will be a series of these competitions running from September to December with the winners earning a fabulous prize and featuring on our website. The Kings of War Monster competition starts us off with a deadline of September 4th.

Welcome to this week’s Mantic Games newsletter. Here you’ll find all the latest information on new releases, news and special offers!
In preparation for the Edge of the Abyss Summer Campaign, this month sees the release of a brand new Two Player Starter Set for Kings of War. The Battle of the Glades features 82 fantastic miniatures, as the demonic Forces of the Abyss take the fight to the enigmatic Forces of Nature. You’ll also find a Kings of War Gamer’s Edition Rulebook, with full rules and 11 army lists and even a mini-campaign booklet!
The Battle of the Glades Guide is a 20-page booklet that introduces you into the world of Kings of War, including tips for building and painting your new miniatures, recommended forces lists for the armies in the box and a 3 scenario campaign for you and a friend to play through!

Like our Infantry trays, these come in packs of four, with textured undersides for creating multi-bases and can be broken down to use with smaller units.

Mantic Games weekly newsletter…

Welcome to this week’s Mantic Games newsletter. Here you’ll find all the latest information on new releases, news and special offers!
Before we get this show on the road, an important announcement.
We have restocked the Walking Dead Equipment Booster, both with retailers and on our webstore. However, based on experience, these will be in very high demand and so stock may not last long. So, if you want to pick one up, do so now before they run out!
Out this week and invading a planet close to yours, the Warpath Mega Forces are now fully deployed! We’re really excited about these as not only are they great deals – full of enough infantry, veterans, and armour to take on any foe – but they also have the first retail wave of our Hard Plastic Vehicles.
The Enforcer Mega Force includes a versatile vehicle kit which can either be assembled as an Accuser Interceptor, with Heavy Burst Laser and a troop compartment, or a Persecutor Bomber. The Interceptor can be used to increase the Enforcers already considerable speed, redeploying units swiftly, whilst suppressing the enemy with strafing runs.

The Persecutor Bomber, on the other hand, is the last word in overwhelming firepower. Capable of destroying anything from dug-in infantry to armoured vehicles, your opponents will learn to fear this deadly aircraft.

The Forge Father Mega Force brings heavy armour to the field. The Forge Father Tank has components to build one of four different variants – the Drakkar APC, Brandr Assault Vehicle, and Sturnhammer with either a Heavy Magma Cannon or a Heavy Hailstorm Cannon.

All of these have heavy armour, which your opponent will struggle to penetrate without dedicated weaponry. The APC can be used to transport your infantry in relative safety, allowing your Forge Fathers to be uncharacteristically quick on the tabletop. Meanwhile, the battle tanks are capable of unleashing devastating amounts of firepower, specailised for either anti-infantry or anti-vehicle operations.

You can pick up either of these sets right now, either from the webstore or your local hobby retailers. If you want to try playing Warpath, why not check out our free rules, or get the Rulebook Collection?
The Walking Dead: All Out War Wave 2 is now available through local retailers or our webstore. Covering events such as the group meeting Tyreese, finding the farm, and discovering what lies inside the barn, this wave expands The Walking Dead: All Out War with new characters, scenarios, and rules which you can use in any of your games. Don’t miss out!
Beasts of War got a look at some of the new resin hero miniatures for the Kings of War Summer Campaign.  We’ll have more information on these next week, so head over there and see the new models for yourself and start planning your forces for the Campaign!
We’ll be attending the Broadside Games Show this Sunday! Pop along to the stand for The Walking Dead: All Out War and pick up the show exclusive Walking Dead booster: Lee and Clementine. See you there!
Although you won’t be able to field a Forge Father Sturnhammer, there’s still time to enter our Deadzone Tournament. Running on the 22nd of June, tickets are available from our webstore and  have almost sold out, so if you want to play, you should get your ticket now!

New releases from Mantic Games…

Welcome to this week’s Mantic Games newsletter. Here you’ll find all the latest information on new releases, news and special offers!
This week we have a massive raft of new releases, from the far future of Warpath to the gritty present of The Walking Dead: All Out War. Here are some of the highlights!
Both the Forge Fathers and Enforcers receive reinforcements this month with new units and weapons being brought into the fold, including the Enforcer Heavy Support Team and the Forge Father Weapons Platform Formation.
The most exciting things though are the new Reserve Forces and Mega Forces. Each of these comes with a load of specialist troopers and units to bolster any existing force or even start a new one. On top of that, each comes with one of the brand new Hard Plastic vehicles – either an Enforcer Flyer or a Forge Father Tank – long before they will be widely available!
Following on from the launch bundles, we’ve started to release the single boosters for The Walking Dead: All Out War Wave Two.

These include the Miles Behind Us narrative expansion and the NeganTyreese and Glenn Boosters (yes, Glenn is finally here!). You can pre-order these from the webstore, or from any of our stockists.

Rob takes a closer look at the Miles Behind Us Expansion and Negan and Ezekiel Boosters for The Walking Dead: All Out War over on the Mantic Blog.
Warpath’s not done yet! The new Hard Plastic Veer-Myn Tunneller was previewed on the Warpath Kickstarter and may just be burrowing into your battlefields later this year.
We’re be attending UK Games Expo 2017 all weekend! Pop along to the stand to play Dungeon Saga or The Walking Dead: All Out War and pick up the show exclusive Walking Dead booster: Lee and Clementine. See you there!

NEW WARPATH ARMIES AVAILABLE NOW – BUILD YOUR ARMY AND PREPARE FOR WAR!

Warpath is our epic sci-fi battle game featuring hundreds of miniatures, mechs and vehicles fighting for supremacy on the battlefields of the far future. From the heavily armoured but agile Enforcers to the endless swarms of the rat-like Veer-myn, Warpath features six unique armies, each with their motives for entering the fray.

The first four starter armies are available in stores soon and include:

Enforcers – heavily armoured but agile, the Enforcers are the Council of Seven’s deadly strike force across the galaxy. Only the most foolish would mess with the might of the Enforcers. Join the Enforcers now!
Forge Fathers – one of the few races to stand against the spread of humanity throughout the stars. The Forge Fathers have hi-tech weaponry to rival the Enforcers. Become a defender of the Star Realm!
Veer-myn – slowly building their forces in the shadowy corners of space stations and GCPS outposts, what the Veer-myn lack in weaponry, they make up for in sheer numbers, teeth and claws! Emerge from the shadows and strike back!
Asterians – determined to keep the balance within the galaxy, when the Asterians march to war they do so with cutting edge droids and drones that can wreak havoc on the battlefield. Restore balance… no matter the cost!

TRY THE GAME FOR FREE!

If you fancy giving Warpath a try, you can download the starter rules from our website for FREE! Head over to the Mantic website and you can download the rulebooks from the Operation Heracles rulebooks, which not only give you introductory rules to the game but also provide some custom scenarios set around a clash between the stoic Forge Fathers and brutal Enforcers.

The great thing is that the game is fully compatible with our existing Deadzone miniatures, so if you’ve got some Forge Fathers or Enforcers from the Deadzone starter set, you’ll be able to give the game a go – particularly the smaller Firefight games.
