The two factions, enforcers and scourge.

Well, I'm not massively keen on Mantic's stuff, but I am very interested in how the terrain look/fits together (old Necromunda player)... Also, the Rebs look interesting.

Good haul there, I didn't pledge as I didn't like enough of the models, but I look forward to seeing you put it all together!

Decided to start with the plague, about 50% of them built :)

Cool, I'll be following this. Were some things delayed? I remember there were going to some hard plastic zombies and enforcers. Did you get those?

Yeah their in the second wave next year along with a few other things.

Massive plague terradon ( zombie teleporting dinosaur? Yes please :) ) 3 more stage 3's and the stage 1 again cus he's awesome lol. Just the mortar team and swarm left to build for the plague then I think I'll move on to the marauders :)

Great to get some pics. What's your impression of the quality of the casting and restic material? Much flash? Easy assembly?

R.

Nicho
08-12-2013, 07:25
I'm really impressed so far, there's little to no flash on most of the models, the detail is nice and sharp and I've had no problems with assembly other than having to warm the odd leg in hot water to bend it to the correct shape.

I can't wait to paint these as there's so much detail :)

Built the Marauders tonight, love the gun suits and the little snipers are cool to. Missing 3 models from the set which I'll be getting replaced hopefully soon :)

One slight problem with the flamer guy

http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/12/09/dumaquta.jpg

Will need a bit of green stuff lol.

Overall these guys have been brilliant quality wise. Is say about 80% didn't need any mould lines or flash removed and those that did had very minimal :)

I had the exact same problem with my flamer guy, went for the hot water/brute stupidity approach.

All looking good so far, cannot wait to see how the painting comes along.

Ok so here is an example of each spruce of terrain I got plus the connectors. Busy cutting it all out now. There's loads!

That's all the terrain set free. Absolutely love this stuff. The little crates, boxes and barrels are a nice touch on the accessories sprue. I will definitely be using a lot of this for Infinity aswell :)

Nicho
09-12-2013, 20:05
Can definitely see some space hulk/interior use for this stuff :)

Built a couple of buildings to try out the system.

Very impressed, the different parts go together well and also come apart with out much fuss too, which is great if you want to change things up. I made a building with a detachable roof so I could use it for infinity too. Only problem I can see is running out of the little connectors that join the pieces together. I skipped a few connectors on the joints between the roof and it's walls just so if have enough for other buildings. Will definitely be buying some more connectors :)

Very much considering buying this, then again I do have Mars attacks on the way....

Yeh, Mars attacks just didn't grab me like this did. I did like some of the soldiers you got in it though :)

Very nice to see it all together.
How does the system play?
I have heard some mixed reviews of the Warpath system, especially regarding closae combat.

It differs from the warpath mechanic.

I haven't played it yet but I believe it works like spacehulk. You roll 3 dice ( or more or less depending on buffs and penalties ) and have to get a number of successful rolls.

You can get bonus effects for getting double or triple successes or, if rolling against your opponent, if you beat him by double or triple the no. of successes he gets.

Movement is by squares on the mat, each model has either 2 short or 1 long skill per turn like move - shoot, aim-shoot, deploy sentry gun, over watch etc.

Here's a link to beta rules demo

Well I've built as much terrain as I can with what I got. Limited slightly by the number of connectors I got.

Fun packing it away afterwards. It's like Tetris lol

Next up, the enforcers :)

Also did you get any Forge Fathers stuff?

Ah right, no didn't get him, just the Recon merc

So that's how much you terrain you can make with just one core worlds battlezone? If that's the case then I will be very happy with my strike team + 4 battlezones.

That's 2 I believe. Get 1 in the box and an extra with strike team. So you'll have 6 sets total or 3 times what I have in that pic :)

Really can't wait for the Warpath kickstarter lol

Nicho

Well had my first short game of this tonight, I was Plague and my Mrs was enforcers. Things I've taken from the game so far:

• the plague's 3 randomly generated mutations they have to place on models at the start of the game is a very cool and fluffy mechanic. I ended up with a hmg dude with wings, a dog with AP attacks and another poor dog with wasting muscles who would drop dead as soon as he took any damage lol.

• Enforcers are solid, good shooting,great gear and decent armor.

• the rules are really quick to pick up and they make sense.You'll know the mechanics after 1 turn, but like they say, easy to learn difficult to master lol.

• I can see suppressive fire via Blazing Away playing a big part in combating CC forces.

•the engineers sentry guns are vicious in over watch with a 2 dice bonus to any over watch rolls made and an extra dice for its blaze away attacks.

Really looking forward to playing a full game tomorrow as we had to cut this one short.

Will def have to get some YouTube vids up soon :)

I'm intrigued by Deadzone; I would have liked to get in on the kickstarter, but I couldn't justify the expense at the time. I look forward to seeing some of the minis painted up.

That's the Rebs built. Love the teraton, but then what's not to like about a massive teleporting grenade launching flame throwing dinosaur :)

Just the mercs to build now and then I'll roll on to painting :)

Dino
15-12-2013, 19:03
A massive teleporting grenade launching flame throwing dinosaur? Sounds like a winner to me.

Also what paint schemes are you thinking for your strike forces?

I'm not sure, I'm thinking maybe painting my plague up in a dark colour with glowy kind of bio luminescent fleshy bits.

Might paint the Rebs like the rebel alliance lol.

Enforcers, I'd like to do some sort of digi camo on them

The marauders I'm going to paint up in military colours as their a regimented commando force from the fluff :)

Hey guys, quick update with a pic of 2 mates trying out the game while I helped with the rules.

It was Plague vs Rebs. Was a very fun game to watch especially when a stage 2 Plague took a wound and went on a rampage through the Rebs lines.

Sweet, I'm watching this. All I've gone is look at the pretty models in the box. I think we could really do with some simple paint guides from mantic
