Abyssal DwarfMantic Games will be releasing their Abyssal Dwarf figures on February 25th, 2011.

From their announcement:
As our faithful Facebook fans will have seen, we’ve updated the name of the Khaos Dwarfs to Abyssal Dwarfs. This change has already been made it’s way across the website and we’ve also now set a firm release date on the new range.

The Abyssal Dwarfs will be launched on the 25th February – though you can get them earlier if you pre-order one of our outstanding army deals.

On a final note, the countdown has begun – there are only 6 days left until our largest, most value-for-money, Army Deals have to change as we implement the UK Vat Rise.

  • I smell GW authored cease and desist letter.

      How? They look nothing like a GW mini

        I think QXNINE was probably refering to the reason behind the name change, however Mantic had always said they had not finalized Kaos as their new dwarf armies name and were considering many others. I suspect Mantic just wanted to tweak GW’s nose and draw more attention to their Dwarfs by temporarily using the word Kaos.

          Didn’t see that part of the news item

          Certainly sounds better than Khaos Dwarf.

          I thought it was the unit name.

    The sooner Mantic break away from any links to GW’s heritage the better I believe. The inidications are that WFB is on the decline, so the sooner they are able to stand on their own two feet the better I think.

    I recently bought a large chunk of Mantic undead and found their sculpting to be actually an improvement on GW plastics of similar scale (say their LotR range). Given their obvious price advantage, I would think that once the range of races available expands to a reasonable number, then the future of “ranked up” fantasy gaming is Mantic’s for the taking!
