I like it! The The Hailstorm Cannon is very nice, only critic is that the noise is to top heavy(Gun Shield), I don't think it would be practical and probably top over. But I don't care about that. It's a very nicely done.
So far for me, the forgefathers are very good, the only fear I have and which is getting bigger and bigger is that the plastics will not live up to the rest.
We've now got photos of the Marauder plastics.
They don't wear shoes, they don't wear pants, and they've still got the same KoW orc faces.

They’re ok, but no match for the great Forgefather sculpts, imho. I wonder if those will be hybrid Kits or if Mantic will give us an additional sprue of plastic bits for those? I really hope for all-plastic-modells, since I hate hybrid kits.
My hope rests on the Forgefathers and the Corporation.

Mixed feelings from me. Poses still look a bit awkward. Retaining kow armour isn't a problem, these guys are barbaric. Plus is something I can't explain, just look fun and a bit mad.
That one with the heavy weapon looks so happy about - he's smiling.
Check out Corp art that's up on bow too.
Better than the Forgefathers in my opinion, but they're just Kings of War Orcs with occasional bits. Was hoping for a bit more at the prices being charged.
Not impressed at all.
The teeth, the tiny feet, the awkward poses, just weird.

While initially I was disappointed at the recycling of KOW orc bodies, I must say these actually look cool. Very reminiscent of Rogue Trader/2nd ed 40k Space Orks.
Urgh, those are revolting. I like the FF cannon thing though. They do look like 1st/2nd ed GW Orks but this is not a good thing in my opinion, I didn't like them then I don't like them now.
In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only British.

Overall they are pretty poor. There are some good elements but they just don't look that good.
While they look passable I'm a bit worried about Mantic's attempt to reuse previous sculpts (such as Twilight Kins). The initial savings will suffer in the long run for sure if the miniatures are not enough to generate interest. Especially when Warpath is supposed to be a new game system for Mantic, somethings shouldn't be watered down for...
Show me a 1nd 2nd ed Space Ork that looks even remotely like Mantics Marauders. Otherwise your post is just trolling.
A heavy weapon is either over or under the shoulder.
Since Forge Father are under, is it surprising the Orx are over to be different?

Sorry, no there isn't!Yes, there will be a second, hot-swappable weapon included in the kit as well.
I like them okay. The wargear is pretty cool, bodies not so much.
Of all the threads in all the forums in all the world you had to post into this one.
honestly , first reaction was "wow, that seems all sorts of lazy" especially after being so impressed with the hero. Talk about a difference in style. I don't dislike the KoW orc look, but i believe it cheapens the release to see such a harsh rehash of the prior sculpts. I do like all the new heads and BFG though.
Also the nauseous green does these models no favors.
I was so pumped too, after seeing the accuracy of the art to model translation of the forge fathers. Im praying the rifle grunts ( or whatever new name they decide to give them HINT HINT) will look better. If not, im definitly taking a pass on the warpath starter set.
