Mantic does some armylists for not-WFB armies

I thought it would be a good time to post this here:

It is armylists for empire/DOW, skaven, and beastmen for use in KoW.  They already have the usual fantasy armies for free on their website: humans, orcs. goblins, good and bad dwarfs, chaos, plus their own stuff...

If the new pics of Warhammer 9th ed have got you down, I have had lots of fun playing KoW of late.  It is fast and simple, no pages and pages of complex and conflicting rules.  You can hammer out a game in 1-2 hours, rather than 2-4 hours for WFB...

Plus they encourage you to use models of your own choosing!

It's a decent game. It lacks complexity, but the same can be said of Warhammer 8th.

Interesting to see. KoW isn't distinct enough from GW, for my tastes, though.
It's your own damn fault.

I didn't like the original rules either. But I know a number of people who have said that the 2nd ed, rules are supposed to be better. Don't know if that's true, but I plan on giving the playtest rules a read. Since you can download them. And playtest them.

I will do the same for AoS. Oh, wait...

Ja, we're also planning on trying the new rules out, even more so now that a clearer picture of the future of warhammer is starting to show (and it's not pretty).

While I wasn't over excited about the old rules they weren't all that much behind 8e- and had the advantage of taking hours less to play. And that's to say nothing about the time it takes to read though them in the first place...

I SEE HALFLINGS!!!!!

....will mantic be making some halfling models? because there is a severe lack of plastic halflings in the minatures market.
For Wissenland and the Countess!!!

I doubt it, as my understanding is that they just made these armylists so people could pretty much copy and paste their WFB into KoW.  They are not part of the 'officially supported' armies.

Also, I would not trust Mantic to do a decent job on the halflings.  Not sure they could beat WK halflings for style and awesomeness...

Beyond some of the Undead there is little Mantic stuff worth it really...though I suppose I don't mind there trolls and ogres to a degree if it were any other sort of fantasy setting than Warhammer.

I don't mind some of their scifi stuff, and am planning to get some of their space-skaven from the recent Deadzone KS.  But yeah, I just use my old WFB stuff for KoW.
