Gamers love being the first ones on their block with the latest and greatest releases. If you’re a fan of Mantic’s sci-fi miniatures game, Warpath, you’ll be wanting to head over to their webshop. They’ve started taking pre-orders for the next set of releases. That includes Operation Heracles, a 2-player starter set pitting the Enforcers against the Forge Fathers (because everyone needs some space dwarves in their life).

From the announcement:

Mantic Games has just launched pre-orders for the first products in its exciting new Warpath range, including the two-player starter set Operation Heracles, rulebooks and more!

Warpath is the strategic, action-packed game of war in the far future. Take control of mighty armies, powerful vehicles, advanced infantry and heroic commanders as you fight across the tabletop to decide the fate of whole worlds. Fight apocalyptic scale battles with hundreds of miniatures on the tabletop or intense squad level skirmishes amongst the densely packed battlezones of the GCPS.

In Operation Heracles, players can choose from the powerful Enforcers or technologically advanced Forge Fathers, as they fight it out for control of the planet Triton. The set comes with everything you need to learn the game, including detailed miniatures, rulebooks and counters. Plus, if you pre-order from the Mantic Games, you’ll receive an out-of-print Forge Father Huscarl miniature for FREE!

Alongside the Operation Heracles starter set, you can also pre-order the Warpath and Firefight rulebooks individually or pick up an exclusive bundle that includes a special slipcase and the Warpath Sourcebook, which gives an unrivalled glimpse into the background of the Warpath Universe.

Warpath will be in stores from April. Check the Mantic website for more details or ask at your local game store.

    Mantic wants $50 USD for this, but they charge £29.99 on their site. The current exchange rate makes that about $36. I might pay $40, sicne that’s a nice round number in the neighborhood, but trying to get $14 USD extra on last years exchange rates as an Atlantic-buddy tax is just shifty & nasty so I’m not going to do it even though I’d be inclined to buy the rules at the UK price.

      It’s likely more of a weight thing, since shipping to the USA is very different from trucking it down the road in the UK. Check the minis prices, and since they are lighter then the price difference is a lot closer.

        It’s not inclusive of shipping and they seem to have some kind of distribution center in the US. I order stuff from GZG and Wayland games, or Northstar Military Figures, now that the pound has fallen and and they don’t push the prices up like that. GW and Mantic do it and they do it by giving you a dollar price that is far higher than the pound price. GW seems to be shipping from the US too. Seems like hardly anyone else does this.
