I've updated the first post with the entire range

Also, for anyone interested in mantic minis (specifically the undead, but other fantasy models by mantic from time to time) head over to my log (in the sig) for more pictures and my thoughts on the models etc.

Has anyone actually seen what the Warpath marauders look like and how well they fit scale wise with GW models? I've got an opertnity to pickk up a lot of them for cheap and figure that if they're close to one of the existing gw models they might be worth a look.
bear in mind that i have gorkamorka, second ed, rogue trader and current edition orks all mixeed in in my army so some phsiological differences can be forgiven. if they all look like giant grots however i'll give em a miss. The pictures for the basic troops arent very detailed.

Closest scale pictures I can find:





I know they're fantasy orcs there, but the marauders use the fantasy orc sprues anyway so it's no different.

*Edit, how long will this opportunity be available?

Hmm head size is close to gorkamorka with body size the same as a standard rk and thinner arms...i could work with that. The deal is 40 for 12.50 which seemed like a bargain to me. I'll send you a pm with the link.

For all those interested:

Mantic have just launched a Kickstarter for their Kings of War game. The purpose behind it is to give them the funding to bring out all the kits they have planned sooner. It's currently at $25k after one day so with any luck the campaign will give them the money to start bringing out lots of plastic sprues again.

The kickstarter has ended, raising over $350,000 for new goodies. I've updated the first post with some concept art.

The kickstarter was mind blowing. So many people bought into it without even having played KoW before due to the sheer amount of free stuff there was available.

Incredible.

There was an incredible amount of free stuff though. The $225 I pledged got me over $900 worth of product.

thats still not free, if you had paid nothing and got $900 then i would clap you, but as it stands you got a good deal, but considering how much mantic stuff i keep getting offered by distributors looking to dump there mantic range i can see why they can give such good deals.

Plus shouldnt they have cleaned up with warpath? surely they shouldnt need to ask the community for donations for a third edition KOW and since warpath was going to sweep away 40k they must have made buckets of cash? for an established company to go cap in hand to the fan base makes me wonder how healthy the company is. Surely they should be looking at real investors or getting money from banks for expansion at this point?
