      @ManticGames Is it as cunning as a fox who’s just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University?

    Bring on the Zombies.

    And the rules.

    As long as they aren’t in Italian…

  3. So what is Manticman Ronnie and his team up to?
    Stay tuned till next time.
    Same Mantic time…
    Same Mantic blog…

    I still think Ronnie needs a cape and a mask. : )

  4. Mantic Towers, you don’t have to be mad to work there….but it helps!
    Mask and cape for Ronnie!
    Great minds think alike!

  5. Great! As someone who has never played a fantasy battle game, I can patiently wait for Mantic’s rules to go with the armies I am painting.

  6. The newsletter finally confirms your Gencon Attendance, what booth are you guys going to be at?

    Those guys at Mantic are mad as hell. Great to see them having fun at work.

  8. I am soooooooo coming to mantic towers. There truly my skills in videography can be put to good use (woot tv 1-3 classes!)

    anyway. nice use of the mission impossible background music. and ronnie you have an e-mail.

  9. Also sucks I can’t make it to gencon because of transportation problems,

  10. Looking forward to this Mantic, looking forward to it…

  11. I wonder who they are getting the rules from?!

    Also, hopefully you guys take some inspiration from Privateer Press and other good companies caring about their rules too rather than GW. Especially when it comes to playtesting and balancing.

    This announcement alone made me reconsider investing in Warhammer 8th edition for the time being, really hoping that “Kings of War” turns out to be the really good game that Warhammer never really was if you didn’t care for narrative and cinematic experiences rather than tough decisions and winning battles due to superior strategies.
    The potential and possibilities are endless – this could rule so much.

    Also, if I could make a wish – skip all kinds of individual magic items and stuff like that, it’s the most annoying part in any mass combat system. Wars should be won by the troopers not by the Lord with the fancy trinket (that has über-powers and is easiley worth hundreds of men).

    Looking forward to this (just slightly sad there was no Orc/Ork announcement – you know that one was coming, didn’t you ;))

  12. Haha great little vid, lots of things to look forward to in the near future!

  13. I really hope they go for something more like Fantasy Rules! and stay completely away from Warhammer and Armies of Arcana. I want to see an actual mass combat game and not a skirmish game dressed up like a mass combat game.

  14. A Kings of War game? Winner!

    Been looking over the site for a while now thinking about buying some models, and if you’re bringing out a game I now have a good excuse to buy some.

  15. Only vaguely aware of Mantic’s existence till a few days ago, but after checking youtube and gaming sites I got very interested, to the point of thinking to get a Dwarf army for WHFB….
    Now I’m even more interested 🙂

  16. I hope that the rules have something ‘new’ and inovative about them that gets me exited…some hook is required whether its Comand & Control or Combat, just something that says WOW…

    I hope that Mantic can write a rules set that live up to Mantic’s ‘Building Bigger Armies’ motto…Fighting The Big Fight…maybe?


  17. This video kust made my day! So funny and so exciting!

  18. The video got me guessing on what they will do next. I had to check out the other videos. very funny stuff.
