Kings of war skirmishes in coming.
Yeah, a Fantasy Deadzone has been mentionned several time as being something they wanted to do.
Also meanwhile note that there is an unofficial pseudo mordheim KoW, see http://www.warseer.com/forums/showt...-a-free-skirmish-ruleset-from-Ironwatch-Games
We finally have pictures of the new resin heros from the summer campaign, including the Ghekko :
I love two out of the four of em
I like the four myself. ^_^
Just in case anyone missed the post on my latest bat rep, I am now the proud owner of an Artakl model and it is absolutely stunning. The quality of the resin casting is one of the best I've known (although my experience is somewhat limited compared to some on here!). Definitely recommend picking him up when he goes on general sale. The thing I'm happiest about is that it sets a damn good precedent for the rest of the Salamander line next year!
Wow very nice resin casting indeed.
I have been thinking of buyin all the new heroes even if I don't play all their armies, and now I am almost sure that I will do so.
That looks ace
Amazing casting and amazing model too.
I will be buying the new heroes, most of them, for sure and the new book too.
That's really nice. Mantic has really improved the quality of their models lately.
Wow the ghekko style is really good (I am one of those who is not so found of the salamanders) and the chasing seems to have improved might maby pick some up later
For any of you that is interested in seeing the miniature painted.
It's a great looking model!
He looks great!
Wonderfully painted green.
Empire of Dust has 4 - Pharaoh, High Priest, Revenant Champion and a Standard Bearer.
I don't mean to derail the thread but why are Empire of Dust evil when the Tomb Kings were on the borderline between Good and Neutral? Just wondering, because I've found some good deals online that have tempted me to start Tomb Kings with Empire of Dust miniatures...
Because of the lore. The area where the empire rose to power required slavery to function. Also they like straight out necromancy compared to the tomb kings lite version
Most likely Empire of Dust are evil because mantic has plans for an Ophidian army which will eventually fill the niche of 'neutral undead', or more exactly a neutral human faction that makes use of necromancy to bolster its fighting ranks. Neutral Empires of Dust would have overlapped a lot, whereas the evil occupies its own place in the lore, and allowed them to tie them into the Ophidian background, with Ophidia havng originally cursed them and in the process learned to be cautious about how much necromancy they use.
Short version-while they are the Mantic version of the Tomb Kings theme, they are a parallel version of the same general idea rather than a direct copy, so they don't have to have the same alignment.
