Default Warpath - Mantics Sci-Fi rules

This weekend, baring any last minute issues, Mantic will be releasing an alternative 40k style rule set called 'Warpth'. It will be free to download along with its army lists - should be Orks, 'Squats', Eldar and Humans.
Once the GW gravy train has been ridden, they should then be releasing more unique army lists. Models will be a few months away though.
I will post a link once I get it!

Thanks for the information. Hopefully they won't use the same ugly body shape for the Eldar that they did for the Elves.

this a good news, you can just use your 40k minis to play mantics free rules !! then when they release new models you can just carry on using your GW minis that you have already paid for because they will no doubt fit the game system....

seriously though i do wish the small indies would try to do something original for a change rather than just scraping the bottom of GW's extremely well scraped barrel, im starting to gain respect for PP at least they took an idea and went out on limb with it, i dont think it was a good idea (steam punk) but they damn well stuck with it and are still doing well after 10 years.

I disagree bits and kits, Mantic is trying to capitalize at just the right time, especially with the restrictions on overseas purchases and shipment by GEE-DUB.

If they can create a decent Universe of fluff, alongside efficient rules, they are positioned to make inroads into the Australian market specifically because people will be able to use existing models.

As the prices for GW products get even more ridiculous for the southern hemisphere blokes, they can start buying up Mantic....and so far the sci-fi stuff all looks decent.

I know the special snowflake in me said "SQUATS?!???!? ME WANT" -alas no money or time atm...haven't worked on my sisters in 6 months XD.

Hrmm. This is probably what Mantic's mail about tonight's Beasts of War was about... should probably go find out...

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

HAHA - no they bloody wont be. Eldar and Ork are both GW trademarks...

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

Whats lame? The fact that another company are basically ripping off GW, or that GW actually trademarks its intellectual property?
