Mantic Games Announces New Bases Available:

From their announcement:

Two new sizes of Mantic bases have been added to our webstore!

First up is the 25mm Square Base used in the Kings of War Orc army. With 12 bases on one strip and our trademark circular slot that push-fits with the stands our figures come on, you can get this sprue individually or in bundles of 5 sprues or 10.

Next up is the 25mm Round Bases used for both the Warpath Forge Fathers and Marauder – 10 round on a sprue. With the same bundles available, you can quickly collect a load of round bases for whatever project it is you’re working on (we’ve heard of all manner of different requests, including getting them alongside the Gravestalker deal).

Don’t forget that we also have a range of Army Painter basing material on our website. We offer four different types of Battlefields Basing, so why not check them out and see what suits your army.

    Can’t see these being useful outside of Mantic’s own models, which all come with bases right? I guess they might be of some value for models with integral bases. Am I missing something?

      Yes. Because of the Mantic peg/base system you are aware of, placing Mantic minis on none-specific bases is extra effort, which is itself in opposition to Mantic’s plan that their minis should be compatible with all game systems. So if one wanted to use KoW minis for a rules system which required round bases, you were out of luck. Similarly, if one wanted to use, say, Mantic undead with a rules system which requires 25mm square bases,you were also out of luck. By selling their full base range, they open up their minis to a much wider range of rules systems.

      Look at everything Perry Miniatures makes. The tabs pre-moulded to their plastics happen to fit right into the slot on the mantic bases.

    I want them to help convert some of their fantasy line to Warpath

    I see, so it is primarily meant for their models, just to allow them to be compatible with more ranges than GW. Good thinking.
