With such a narrow view of what makes 40K the setting it is I'm not really suprised that you would see Mantic as such a threat.


Sigh (not sure why that's there but hey, when in Rome!)
OH COME ON.

Look - that was quite obviously me being sarcastic - I put the 'headbutt wall' smilie and the 'sigh' at the end of it.

Seriously - you are just looking for an arguement - and Ive had enough.

To prevent any 'misunderstandings' if I post IN ORANGE then I am joking.
Thank you

No one is looking for an argument and I think everyone has had enough.

I'll repost what I put up in the thread I started that hasn't already been said here because that thread is dead:

Warpath, Mantic's sci-fi game will be released in October!

A Beta will be released in the summer for public testing.

Beasts of War will have a Warpath week coming soon.

B.O.W Backstage pass members will get a few weeks of Alpha testing.

3 Armies will come with the public beta.

The scale confirmed at 28mm (of course)

Warpath will be a big battle game, in line with Mantic's ethos. But it will be able to scale, you will be able to play with 2-3 units, or massive armies. This follows what they've done with K.O.W.

Mantic are a breath of fresh air imo,
we can hope anything that challenges GW is only is going to make them better and maybe curb the hungry cash beast tendencies they have been displaying since achieving sector dominance .

I wish Mantic well and look forward to watching them evolve and move on to a unique and interesting path of their own making.

on another note, isn't cavattore responsible for the total stinker that is the c: chaos space marines? If he is then I don't know why anyone is excited about this.
Yep, but now he is free from the direction imposed on him by GW and free to think, he has also invented 'Kings Of War' - a fun game system - well worth a play - and you can get the rules for free from the Mantic website!

No, I was disagreeing with you and refusing to back down at the threat of being reported as a troll just for not sharing your opinion.

How about everyone take a deep breathe, leave things where they are and stay on topic? Remember kiddies, play nice

On topic though. I'm hoping to see some sci fi civilians released for Warpath. I think a plastic civilians kit is something that, while not everyone would see the point in, would definitely set mantic apart from other companies.

Yup civilians would rock, maybe add something to protect or collateral damage.

Do you not see how ludicrous that is, or are you suggesting the UK military (squad size 10 led by an NCO) copied GW.
I've only ever been in sections of 8 ;-)

I'm looking forward to it, after all, variety is the splice of rope!

edit:

40k is massively like starwars though, one human emperor, leading a huge army of lightly armoured imperial army (IG) and his legions (yes legions) of stormtroopers, humans in armour, trying to conquer the galaxy and keep it under their rule. They dislike aliens intensely too, which is why they're all human, and also, they're all English... Much like the emperor in 40k.

You're almost correct. In the later years of the empire the stormtrooper corps began accepting non humans into their ranks :D
