Megan calls her Darth Maul's* long lost sister.

 

Me, she reminds me of the demons in the computer game Oblivion.

* I cannot describe how much the fight scene against Dart Maul annoyed me - the actor playing Darth Maul knew what he was doing, while the Jedi were just waving their swords around. There should have been thin slices of deli style Jedi on the counter....

 

Oblivion!

I have that game, indeed you're right!

That one would also make a nice Dark Elf Sorceress if you can lose the tail.

I better not look at Mantic too much, I already have a lifetime supply of minis ( with 2 KS coming to add to it), I have seen some nice stuff so far.

Tempting..

Just watched an interview with Matt Gilbert where they talked about upcoming releases. Now that the Dwarf resins are hitting the shelves, the next in line are the Forces of Nature getting their warband set and a new druid sculpt in April. After that comes the Goblins in May, with a bunch of new sculpts. There's one that looks like a trapper, one that I'm guessing is a Red Goblin Blaster(carrying a big bomb with rockets strapped to his back), and some kind of siege weapon that launches Mawbeast pups. Then comes a Trident Realms warband pack and a Dambuster model, but they didn't say when for them. Given that everything else they went into at the same time is slated for spring, I'm guessing late spring or early summer.

 

They also said that late summer will see the Undead warband set, as well as a supplemental campaign book that will go into games with more than 2 players, have scenarios for city fighting, likely include more mercenaries, and will possibly have rules for weather effects and things like that.

 

I'm really wanting to see what comes with the Goblins and the Undead.

Yeah. There’s a lot of fun looking minis coming up for goblins.

Wasn’t really planning on adding to my orc and goblins collection until I saw some of the previews.

I saw the image of the Mawpup launcher, and showed it to Megan, intending to mock it - hopefully in stereo,

 

She looked at it and said 'Oooh! I want that!' <_<

 

What we have here is a basic failure of communications.... :lol:

It's a fun mini, and I want one too! Mostly for the one gnawing on the leg.

Well, you’ve always had a lot of character,  but Mantics KoW minis are getting there.

No,no, no. My goblin army is finished. And I definitely didn't want cool flying support for them. Who am I kidding there is large non negative chance that I'll end up with these someday. With Bones 4 and another KS incoming in the next month or so I think I can make my will save for now.

      These last few weeks have been very busy IRL so very little has been painted. I did however manage to whip this up the other day.

      For some reason my camera did not want to focus properly on the face.
       
       
      Printlines?! Printlines!?

      What is it with "premium" resin minis and what looks suspiciously like printlines? Has someone failed at the clean-up-of-the-master-print-stage or is it something else that makes such lines a thing? Has someone rushed and cut corners? Why would you release a premium resin model like this?
      You can say a lot about Mantic starting out with cheap, "no brand" minis, but that is simply no longer true. Single, normal size resin models clock in at the €10-15 range retail price, the four model booster is a £30 / €40 / $45 box. That is premium pricing. Well, maybe at the lower end of premium but still, premium pricing.
      When they charge a premium price, I expect a premium product. Print lines = sloppy quality control. = not premium.
      Apart from the print lines on the cape, it is a good mini. I cannot abide the square bases they use for Vanguard, so I printed a 25mm round for it.

      Fe fi fo fum, here come the Giants!
       
      Ignore the bases, they are temporary until the Sons of Behemat codex releases and I know what I can proxy them as.
       
      First up we have Devin Townsend...er, the Kings of War Giant.

      This is one of Mantic's earliest metal minis, the "limited editon" Orc Shaman from 2011. It was AFAIK not available by itself, but added to army boxes, deals and so forth and I believe I got this from the first Kings of War kickstarter in 2012. Or an army box with orcs.
      Today, it is on their website and can be had by redeeming 25 mantic points through their points scheme. It was known for a while as "Wip the Half-Caste" but now is back to "Orc shaman" I suspect the "Wip the half-caste" name is some sort of internal Mantic joke.
       

      I must admit I have always found this model to be rather busy and difficult to read. There seems to be so much going on.

      On my quest for a Legions of the Dead full painted army for Saga : Age of Magic, I just finished :
      - a Behemoth (Colossal Skeleton from Reaper)
      - 2 flying creatures (skeleton demon from Ral Partha)
      - 2 quadrupede creatures (Skeletal War Dog and Handler from Ral Partha with Giant Skeleton Rats from Mantic)
       

       
      Next... Bowmen ?

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I'm new here, been an off and on lurker over the years, and wanted to share some pictures most recently finished models.
       
      Before I began, I was looking for ideas on how to decorate the models and a lot of the pictures that I found of these models I didn't think did them justice. So I looked at other treemen models. What I liked the most was using foliage and turf material to create "real" foliage instead of going with just painted metal.
       
      I really enjoyed working on the models, it was a lot of firsts for me. The biggest one being water, I have seen a lot of videos about making water scenes and what not. Seeing the model with cattails on it I had to have it coming out of the water. I tried going for a wet dripping algae look. For a first attempt I think it did turned out pretty good. As far as the models go, I wasn't really thrilled with the appearance of the metal vines. So I created my own vines as well, which is another first. Quite fun but tedious and pleased with the look. Cattails were made from parts of floral wheat and tacky glue. Adding foliage to miniatures in general is a first for me as well, all the foliage was self made with colored sawdust and furniture foam. The only thing not made was static grass.
       
      The water is Woodland Scenics Realistic Water and their Water Effects. I liked how easy it was and relatively mess free compared to the typical 2 part epoxy that I've seen.
       
      After doing these minis I thought of something I am going to attempt on my other 6. I'm going to ditch the metal arms entirely and use floral wire as a support so I can then pose the vines however I want.
       
      Lastly, these are going to be a part of my Elven Army and perhaps a start of a Forces of Nature Army for Kings Of War. So these aren't my first models. Just the ones I'm most satisfied with. If you have any suggestions, critiques, or questions let me know.
