Just recieved my bag and I'm very impressed with the quality of the minatures, especially the Undead models. I got pretty much the same as evrryone else except only 2 Ghouls and no zombies but instead got 2 Elf Bolt Throwers. Looking forward to putting them together.
Just got mine:
20 Elf Spearmen
20 Elf Archers
2 Bolt throwers
2 Elf Scouts
9 Orc Axs
6 Orc Greataxs
10 Ironclad Dwarfs
I'm going to give the elves to my friend (sort of gutted she'll be getting two bolt throwers to use on me though :P) and I'll probably hand on to the rest, maybe trade them at a later date or paint them for D&D or the like.
Overall, really pleased with the bag. Good job mantic!
Har Har my bag arrived and it was stuffed with goodies
40 revenants O_o
40 Elves with spear
20 elves with bow
2 bolt throwers with crew
9 orcs with command
2 Warpath orcs that are totally interchangeable with fantasy woohoo
Very impressive Mantic.
^ That's one lucky haul you got there, not only did you get over 140 models, you also got some artillery and warpath too.
I ordered mine on the wee hours of Sunday night. I'm a bit disappointed with what I got compared to other people, I seem to have gotten 2 Bolt Throwers, 40 Elves and 30 Revenants and that's it. Still it's cheaper than what I would've paid using the deal I guess, but I guess I was expecting more.
I am surprised. That seems a bit light. From other comments I've read here, I thought around 120 minis would have been the least to be included in the bag.
I agree - email them to see if something is amiss
It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye... and then it's just fun!

I'll get round to it eventually, but as I said I'm still saving money, and don't want to be too cheeky regarding a special offer. :P
Ronnie specified the number of sprues in the bag in the video. Tell them how many you got rather than saying you got X many models.

I actully go the deal because I wanted the bag and figured with the minis it would be a rather good deal (Also Lord Marcus here has been hammering into me to get some of thier stuff). I also wanted to show people at the LGS what Mantic has to offer. In both of thease I am not disappointed, the sculpts are wonderful and the orcs are very characterful. The elves are very well recieved by the locals who hang out there. ( I got like 40 elves, some undead 20 or so, 12 or so orcs, and some dwarves (needs more dwarves, and female sculpts please, and not with beards)...only elves would be afraid to take sharp stone to thier skin to get rid of unwanted hair). The bag is a great size, expands nicely, and in a great neutral color. My only complaint would be the inside zipper was broken, however I am sure as it is a nylon (plastic) zipper, it would happen pretty often so I do not blame Mantic for this, and it would be hard to inspect every one. All in all, a great deal, and wonderful job on the sculpts I recieved. I would like to see some Warpath next and will be ordering some to check them out.
Haha! Carl, you made it! Glad to see you like Mantic's models!

Anyone know how many sprues are supposed to be in the bag? I can't seem to track down the video. I sent an email anyway, but it might've gotten lost in filters and whatnot, so I was going to send a second one with more accurate information.
25 sprues per bag were mentioned in the video. You might also want to PM Nightsword on this.
A bit off the sprue-count topic, but was anyone else interested in the idea of participating in a "Tale of X-mas-bag Gamers?" thread? If so, does anyone know if that would be simply painting/assembly updates for their bag, or would the participants be strongly encouraged to expand their Mantic collection as well during the process?
I think that anything Mantic would go. If you just want to get the bag done, do that. If you feel like doing more, get doing!
