Hey everyone! Some of this saw this coming a mile away, however I don't think any of us could have guessed how big this could be!

FYI Mantic Games will be releasing their starter set for the Kings Of War wargame! Check out these links for further info:

Personally I think this is going to be pretty darned cool. Mantic seems to be doing everything right! I would like to see how it stacks up to 8th Edition Warhammer Fantasy. In any case it provides an alternative to Fantasy, and a different set of rules you can potentially use for you Warhammer armies for "for fun" games.

Looks like Warmaster scale and not a fan of Alessio.

Hope you have fun with it though.

It's not 10mm like the Warmaster scale, it's truescale 28mm. It's a head smaller than heroic scale Warhammer/Warmachine figures, so they will look a tad bit smaller. However they fit on the same size bases and if you put them in a force of heroic scale miniatures, they wouldn't be all that off. I have some of the ghouls from the undead army and they are excellent and highly detailed miniatures on par with anything GW puts out. A lot of people are using Mantic miniatures in Warhammer armies, and I don't see why people who have existing Warhammer armies wouldn't give Mantic's rules a try for fun as well. Of course the nifty thing about Mantic is their plastics are the best priced figures out there now, and you get a lot more for your money.

If you're not sure about how the rules will turn out for various reasons, Mantic has something cool planned. The rules will be going into free open Beta test soon so gamers will be able to have a hand in how they shape up and play. While no system is perfect, this will help balance things out in the long run, eliminate a lot of problems, and give gamers a say in how the game is run. This isn't just going to be Alessio's gig, or Mantic's gig. It's going to be the result of a productive combined effort. This is something I think is pretty cool.

I'm looking forward to giving them a shot when they come out. I might not be able to regularly get into the game, but it looks like a lot of fun.

BTW if you don't mind me asking Brian, what's your beef with Alessio? Just kind of curious. I like hearing the gamers perspectives and takes on the people who make games.

I have to say I rather liked playing the new Edition of 40k. I think it's one of the best and tightest and most fun versions of the rules that has come out.

I'm going to have a copy of the "closed" beta rule book that they just released today to newletter subscribers with me @ Warpig tonight if anyone wants to check out the rules.

Ok since TTGN posted the link i'll go ahead and link here also. Having read the rules for a little bit tonight, it seems like it might be fun. Give the rules a read and give mantic some feedback on their forums.

Since I'm keeping up with this game but not actively playing, I wanted to let everyone know about some news about it. This comming week Mantic will be releasing the core rules on their site, as well as the initial images of their newest army, Chaos Dwarves. Seeing as how I have been working on a fantasy/kings dwarf army myself, I might have to build out a CD army for both games as well. Below is a link to a German site that has initial sculpt images of the chaos dwarves, as well as the announcement video mantic did earlier this week.

I saw those Chaos Dwarf models and I am sold. I haven't ordered anything from Mantic yet but I do believe the new Chaos Dwarf models will push me over the edge.
