    Re: The Crazy Bag returns!

    I think on FB Mantic said there might be a delay because they had been overwhelmed with orders!

    Re: The Crazy Bag returns!

    I won't be getting any this time, money is tight right now and the mrs is watching like a hawk, but I was VERY happy when I got the last crazy bag, really good marketing idea Mantic, and I wish them all the best.

    10 Elf Bowmen
    2 Elf Scouts

    No it's not as much stuff. But I'm sure Ronnie made some comment around Christmas time that the old amount was just ludicrous.

    Re: The Crazy Bag returns!

    You do get a much more interesting mix in this one. I know some of the later christmas bags had elven war machines, but this one has elf and dwarf war machines, and overall a better mix of things. Less of an army builder base for undead and elves with a few extras, and more of a survey of the range.

    Re: The Crazy Bag returns!

    ok i ordered 2 bundles and got:

    2 x10 man skeleton sprues
    2 x10 man revenant sprues
    2 x10 man elf spearman sprues
    2 x10 man elf bowman sprues
    2 xelf boltthrowers plus crew
    2 xdwarf organ guns plus crew
    2 x2 man forgefather spues
    4 x3 man orc sprues
    2 x2 man elf scout sprues
    2 x5 man dwarf sprues
    2 x3 man orx sprues
    6 x2 man orx sprues
    2 x2 man ghoul sprues
    3 x3 man zombie sprues

    1 restic veermeen

    So a nice big bundle of plastic, those keeping track tho will notice thats only 39 sprues, going off what doesnt divide by 2 and what others have reported I'm light 1 zombie sprue which is a shame as they were what I was most interested in. Also I expected 2 of the veer-meen which they promised for the delay, they obviously meant per order not per bundle - these were ordered for myself and a friend so I'll snaffle it and keep quiet.

    Re: The Crazy Bag returns!

    Well, it has ben a loooonnnggg time coming (not Mantics fault!), but I finally recieved my Christmas crazy bag this week. A combination of moving house and country meant it had to be delivered to my parents and they finally managed to bring it over to Switzerland a few days ago.

    2 x Elf Bolt throwers + 2 sets of crew.
    2 x skeleton sprues (20 models)
    2 x Revenent sprues (20 models)
    1 x ghoul sprue (2 models)
    2 x Elf sprues (20 models)
    2 x Elf command sprues (20 models)
    2 x Dwarf sprues (one with dog) for 2 handed weapons (10 models)
    3 x Iron Watch sprues (6 models)
    3 x Orc warrior sprues (9 models)
    3 x Orc great ax sprues (6 models)
    1 x orc accessory sprue.

    Total (inc warmachines) = 115 models.

    Very happy (even more so as I guessed correctly the bases I would need to order with it).
    I was also pleasently suprised by how much better the elves and dwarves look in "the flesh" and they have essentially convinced me to sell up my GW dwarfs once I have enough of the Mantic ones to take over. The elves look a bit more of a challenge to paint as they are really finely detailed, with many more details than I had originally thought - In my hands the helmets look a lot less phalic and the spears a lot thinner than the pictures I have seen suggest. The undead are excellent (I already have a large collection of Mantic undead) so no suprises there. The orcs are exactly as I hoped after seeing their pics on the internet - reminiscent of early 90's GW (IMO how orcs should look). The bag is pretty neat too. Big thumbs up all round.

    I realised how good the elves actually are in person and said as much in my latest Clash of Kings blog post: http://forum.manticblog.com/entry.ph...tle-bit-mental

    They are very detailed models.

    Re: The Crazy Bag returns!

    Yeah the elves are completely under-rated. I got some in my Christmas bag, fell in love with them and went and got 2000 points worth a few weeks later. Mantic have managed to make them look really slender and graceful.
