German gaming site Brueckenkopf Online has posted the concept art for the Warpath Forgefather Artillery.

    They are allowed to show it one day only.

    Thudd guns in boxes. Original.

  • Quirkworthy

    Why is it a Thudd gun? Is it because it has 4 barrels? That’s hardly a GW invention.

  • Haibane

    It’s also hardly a coincidence. Wonder if we’ll be getting mortars that burrow underground and Forgefathers on bikes too – although they were some of the weaker Squat concepts I think. A burrowing vehicle perhaps?

      The preview linked here mentions Trikes.

      I don’t really think that people should be surprised. I think that their business plan is pretty clear and the fact that they are going to, as it appears, provide a Squat army for gamers is a given.

      • QFT, when did people start thinking Mantic was anything other than GW:Redux?

      • Darkover

        The Marauders will get a trike-buggy (in the starter set), but I don’t know if the Forgefathers will get something similar.

    I’m not sure why people are surprised. Mantic makes miniatures which are an affordable alternative to GW. Their ruleset is for people who already have GW armies. That’s the market they’re playing for. Getting pissy about Mantic making a GW-interchangeable product is like getting pissy about McDonald’s making a cheap burger. That’s their market, that’s their strategy, and if you’re not interested, maybe you’re not the intended customer.

    It’s not like there aren’t tons of original and interesting games out there if you’re not interested in finding a new use for your 40k army or padding out a Warhammer force.

      Very well said.
