I have some of their zombies (well, more like 100...) and in my opinion they are some of the best 28mm zombies on the market today.

I was looking at Wayland Games earlier and noticed the Mantic battle sets at very low prices

Are they worth buying? (I fancy the undead armies as I've never collected GW undead)
Are they similar to GW in size and quality?
I'm sure purists will never let them on the table with GW armies so would it be best to collect them and buy into the Mantic rules and play separately?

Yeah they're worth it. Like I said before, I've picked up some zombies and the detail is great. Their more realistic in scale so they're a little smaller than GW but still 28mm.

The zombies are better than GW zombies in every way :grin:

As far as rules go, I can't help you as I know nothing of the Kings of War Ruleset

Son of Freyr 02-09-11 09:39 PM

Hopefully someone out there may have bought the boxed game and can tell us how the rules differ from Warhammer

imm0rtal reaper 02-09-11 09:43 PM

Beasts of War should have a run thorough of the rules

DestroyerHive 02-09-11 11:00 PM

Yeah, Mantic Zombies are amazing,l and their other stuff don't look too shabby either! Can't complain at those prices...

New Army in Beta and Pre-Order
 
This may be of interest to some. Mantic has a new Orc army in beta and for pre-order now (releases 25th of this month). The units look gorgeous (as gorgeous as Orcs can be). And they're accompanied by Goblins--at least that what I think the tiny figure is. I checked the beta army list and it seems to be a fieldable unit (for assassination and such).

Got myself a heap of the Undead, Elves, and Dwarves.
Very impressed with the quality of the models.
Stunning detail, and a bargain price.

The Undead are probably the best looking models in terms of detail, and the Dwarves not as much. Elves are about in between.

VERY happy with Mantic's work, and will no doubt be looking forward to buying quite a bit more from them in the future. :)

As a bit of an update they have released 2 sci fi armies, orx and Forgefather for their new game warpath. The forgefather army is an excellent replacement for an army we lost long ago. The squats.

I've got one of their Elf army-in-a-box sets (Prince Tylenol's host or somesuch).

If it wasn't for mantic, I wouldn't even be tempted to try playing Fantasy.
Of course, it also helps that three other players in my club have large mantic armies also (undead, more elves, and dwarfs), so it's not like they are going to be stand-outs.
