I mentioned earlier not wanting to just walk to battle. Where’s the fun in that? No, you want to in style, like in some awesome combat vehicle. Well, the Enforcers and Forge Fathers in Warpath don’t want their troops just hoofing it to the conflict, so they’re getting some new vehicle releases next month.

From the announcement:

August is an exciting month for Warpath fans, as it sees the release of brand new hard plastic vehicles. Whether it’s the Enforcer Interceptor soaring over the battlefield, or the heavily armoured Forge Father Sturnhammer rumbling across terrain; the introduction of vehicles promises to open up a totally new dynamic to Warpath.

These releases will be some of the most affordable sci-fi vehicles on the market, once again ensuring Mantic’s reputation for offering great miniatures at a fantastic price.

In Warpath, you take command of entire units, as you plan your tactics to claim strategic objectives and carve a path to victory! The game has been designed to play massive sci-fi wargames on an epic scale, with 100s of miniatures lining the tabletop, but the intuitive rules ensure gameplay is still exceptionally fast and fluid.

From August 4th, Mantic will be adding the following vehicles to its range:

Sturnhammer Battle Tank £24.99/€34.99/$39.99

Armed with a main battery of Heavy Hailstorm Cannons and clad in armour capable of withstanding all but the most powerful and well-placed blasts, the Sturnhammer inexorably carries the might of the Forge Fathers to war.

Drakkar APC £19.99/€24.99/$29.99

The Drakkar’s sloped, reinforced armour makes it one of the toughest troop delivery vehicles on any battlefield anywhere. With a Hailstorm anti-personnel weapon to discourage any assailants along the way, the vehicle is an extremely safe and reliable transport for platoons of Steel Warriors and Forge Guard.

Hultr Half-Track £14.99/€19.99/$24.99

Powerful engines and adaptable treads allow the Hultr Half-Track to react to the flow of battle fluidly, supporting the Forge Father lines with its Hailstorm or Magma Cannon.

Accuser Interceptor/Persecutor Bomber £24.99/€34.99/$39.99

The Galactic Co-Prosperity Sphere’s most advanced military demands equally advanced air support. The Accuser and Persecutor wings fulfill this task faultlessly, claiming air superiority for the Enforcers below.

Arbiter Interceptor £29.99/€39.99/$49.99

The Arbiter swaps the Accuser’s Burst Lasers in favour of twin Polaris Cannons, delivering a heavy punch against armoured targets in swift ground-to-air strikes few enemies can counter.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I would be much, much more excited about this if they’d finish abollishing restic from the minis range.

    I know I may catch hate for this, and yes, it is entirely subjective..but….

    These vehicles are horrible & lazy design. They look like sub-par eighties kids toys. There is not focus, no balance of detail sizes and density. They take plain purposeless detals and repeat them to fill space. The paint job on the flyer isnt helping it either – it emphisises the repetisous panel noise and then cloros it to look like a nintendo shooting-game peripheral. The tank looks like a cheap RadioShack remote-control toy left out in the weather, or a Chaos Roomba – not sure which yet.

      I’m kind of with you. I don’t find a lot of Mantic’s sci-fi output particularly inspired. Same with Warlord’s Beyond The Gates of Antares. Getting a sci-fi product to look slick without seeming chintzy must be tough. (And I like Mantic & Warlord’s games generally, just not the look of their sci-fi armies.)

      • BDub

        I’m squarely in the same boat. But no, it isn’t that hard. I work in an industry that does it everyday. Others within their own industry do it often, as well.

      The flyer isn’t awful, but the tanks/apcs are pants. I get that they’re supposed to have a Forgefather helmet motif, but they don’t look practical at all.

      Also: Chaos Roomba caused soda to go up my nose.

      • odinsgrandson

        Great, now I want a Chaos Roomba.

        • DB

          Don’t get the Nurgle one. Seriously.

          • odinsgrandson

            You don’t want to know what the Slaanesh one did to my bedroom.

          • DB

            The Khorne one is very, very good if you have problems keeping your skull pile tidy.

    • odinsgrandson

      We’re all so busy focusing on the Chaos Roomba, that we haven’t explore the ’80s lightgun toy angle.

      I think it is mostly the paintjob that’s doing it, but it does remind me a bit of Captain Power:

        From a design stand point, thats actuall a much better design. And like I said, the Nintendo controller paint-scheme doenst help, but if you ignore the paint, it a mess of repeated panel edges/lines all over. Yuck

  • Abe Killian

    That flyer could have some real promise in caring interested hands, but the assembly seems lazy – they haven’t removed the join line between fuselage halves for example and there’s little or no shading..
    Those tanks on the other hand are truly dreadful – I’m sorry – but they should not go to market! Economically it’s a big loss me thinks.

    Some of their minis are just lovely, but they need a new team on vehicles.

    • odinsgrandson

      I feel like I’ve seen worse designs on tanks plenty of times.

      Honestly, with both designs I feel that the main issue is that they didn’t pay their painter enough to show them off properly. I often feel that way about Mantic’s paintjobs.

      I’ve seen plenty of worse tank designs than the Chaos Roomba.
