Mantic: Kings Of War

by Baragash on Tue Mar 22, 2011 10:17 pm
So Mantic had a 15% off to celebrate Ronnie's (the owner) birthday, and I took the opportunity to buy both Kings Of War armies from Mhorgoth's Revenge to ~1,000pts (Undead at 1,015 and Dwarfs at 1,005 or 1,020 depending on if I upgrade the Crossbows to Rifles, ignoring Mhorgoth for now).

"Only available for the offer duration" items I went for:
5 Undead Zombie Sprues (3 Zombies per sprue) to make the unit from the basic set into a 30 model unit

Board Games - Mantic Dwarf King's Hold

by Baragash on Sat Apr 09, 2011 1:13 am
So assembling Dwarf King's Hold is part of my Q2 Hobby Challenge

Managed to get the Dwarfs (5 warriors, 2 shieldbreakers, mastiff* and dead dwarf objective) done tonight, as well as basing the two Bloodletters for the challenge.
*Who seems to be eating table in the pic :roll:

The models are nicer nicer than the old GW 1-piece Dwarfs, but a few years behind the detail of the current GW range. However, I do quite like the models, plus the relative price means I definitely feel I get what I pay for.

Board Games - Mantic Dwarf King's Hold

by Baragash on Sun Apr 10, 2011 10:41 am
So assembling Dwarf King's Hold is part of my Q2 Hobby Challenge

Just finished the 10 Revenants (Armoured Skeletons) for the game as well. There's also a Pit of Souls (used in the game) and a Pile of Bones (you get counters for these, but if you had enough Mantic skellies, as I do with a 1k army, you could use "actual" piles), and a Skeleton Rat (used in Kings of War).

Image

6 of the models on the sprue are sculpted Revenants, the other 4 are Skeleton Torsos with blinged up heads and armour pieces to be stuck on (which works fine IMO).

They were nice models to put together:

Bara's adventures in dipping

by Baragash on Thu Jan 26, 2012 11:11 pm
Little experiment in dipping on a "red shirt" model:
Image
Image

Method:
Spray white
Usual base technique
Brush on Quickshade Medium
Clean brush in white spirit
Pick out collar in Chainmail
Light drybrush of Bleached Bone
Light drybrush of Skull White (inc base)

Job done :)

(Well I need to tidy the rim and do a quick wash on the Chainmail, but yeah)

Hopefully this will develop into a speedy appearance of my Tomb Kings :)

Thanks Matt :)
