    So the corporation are not to be trusted.
    Excellent.
    Makes for some good interesting Machiavellian plot lines to come forward thropugh the mix in time to come.
    It's not the content I have a problem with, it's the way its written. I find it really offputting.
    It couldn just be me though, if others enjoy it I'll happily consign myself to the fact I'm a difficult sod to please.

    Dont get me wrong Grimmeth, literature like art is entirely subjective.
    What I like is the vibe, it kinda comes across a little like the corporation bad guy from the Avatar film, with a little extra cheese and some dodgy one liners. The fast pace keeps you moving forward and not getting too caught up in the throw away lines.
    It's not the kind of material that is asking to be analysed too closely but then it's a racy bit of script to get you into a gaming mode with the corporation models on the table and in that role, I think it works.
    High art literature it is not, but thats not what it's meant to be.

    After reading the short story, I can't help but imagine Phoenix Wright standing on the battlefield commanding the troops. Click image for larger version.

    Interesting story, the forgefathers are described as a 'subjugated race' yet their entire species is implied to be fighting against the corporation , maybe the story should have it be that those forgefathers are hiring themselves as mercanaries.

    Re: Mantic SciFi Games News and Rumours Roundup

    I think the 'subjugated race' bit is only from the Corporation's perspective. I doubt they view themselves that way.

    Re: Mantic SciFi Games News and Rumours Roundup

    Defitinitely not subjugated, they were sub-contracting for payment then they were double crossed.

    The metal heroes Mantic releases are always the best of the best. I wish the plastic minis would resemble the sculpting of your showcase models more. (no criticism towards the plastics, it's just that the metals usualy are even better and sometimes of an entirely different sculpting style)

    Re: Mantic SciFi Games News and Rumours Roundup

    Getting the same sculptor to do a whole range is quite important I think.

    Everyone has a different sculpting style, and you either have to roll with that, or put a lot of effort into making everyone sculpt in the "house style" like GW and PP do.

    Corp and Veermyn won't be a problem since Remy is doing all of them.
    If you play any of Mantic's games, check out my Battlescribe project for KoW and Warpath.

    If the model is half as good as the concept art, it will be awesome. Since Remy is making it, I've no doubt it will be great. I'm glad I got Elite!

    Well I love it. That is some of the coolest art work for a rat I have ever seen.

    I had a lot of trouble making through it as well. I found that it didn't flow very well. It wasn't my cup of tea anyway so *shrug*.

    I really like the concept art for the big rat ogre hulk thing, but again I find myself wishing there had been more of a sci fi look to the concept art initially.

    Sweet, a new Warlock Engineer!

    I like the artwork, but I think you folks may have strayed too far into steampunk. It really doesn't strike me as a space-faring creature.

    EDIT: Actually, it's not unlike Ikit Claw...just more than overboard with the bling, swap the halberd for a drill, and trim the "claw" Click image for larger version.

    In other words...yeah...it wouldn't look out of place in Clan Skryre. Color me unimpressed again...but I suppose I can just use my skaven in warpath and call it good.

    So there is no armour in the corporation armoured Division. Odd

    Whats the background for these then? It seems to be a dwarf thats wounded, in a robotic suit as opposed to a dwarf wearing a suit - correct me if I'm wrong

    Dwarven Batbot (from The Batman) with weapons. Spiffy.

    EDIT: Mind, I like it, it just reminded me of the Batbot. Then again, I have a unreasonable love for Dreadnoughts, mechs, and mobile suits, so I'm not surprised I like it.
