It’s getting cold out. Some people are more used to cold than others. Those that live in the cold, northern part of Mantica are certainly used to it. But they are heading south, looking to get some feeling back into their fingers. As such, the Northern Alliance is making its way into the Kings ...

I’ve always loved oversized miniatures. You know, the ones that their base is the size of a CD or a notepad. For you Kings of War players, Mantic has a couple new huge minis that they’re taking orders for. You’ve got the Revenant King on Undead Wyrm and the Steel Behemoth. They̵...

While the GCPS isn’t normally the ones headed into Deadzones, sometimes that’s all that will work against whatever threat to humanity is to be found there. And keeping humans safe is what the GCPS is all about. Ever since the Mandrake Rebellion, they have redoubled their efforts to make s...

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 vehic...

I do so love a campaign system for games. I’ve never been too hot on tournaments. Too much pressure all at once. But a nice campaign, over the course of a couple weeks or months, spreads all of that out and is just more enjoyable, in my experience. Well, Mantic is giving players the tools [&hel...

Getting into a new game, or even just a new force within a game you already play, can be a bit of a chore. Trying to figure out what all you need isn’t always the easiest to figure out. That’s where ready-to-play (once assembled, anyway) army forces can really help out. In the case of [&h...

As you all very well know, I’m a “try before you buy” sort of gamer. If I can even just get a read of the rules beforehand, it’ll really help me decide if a game’s for me or not. With so many out there (and more coming all the time), I certainly can’t play them [&h...
