I feel terrible saying this about Mantic; they seem a bunch of nice people doing good work and sincerely wanting to provide a more cost-effective alternative to the GW behemoth. But the impression I keep getting is that there’s some kind of creative spark missing somewhere; everything seems generic fantasy or scifi and it doesn’t excite my imagination at all. The miniatures are serviceable but lacking flair, and what I’ve read of the universes seems forgettable. I suspect they need an infusion of creativity and some original ideas, and some really good sculptors, illustrators and writers. Of course I could be wrong, Warpath (why use a word that makes you think of American Indian warfare for a scifi game?) and Kings of War might be amazing games – has anyone ever played them?
