I was an early backer of this Mantic Kickstarter, and due to a number of boring logistical reasons, I still don’t have my complete pledge shipped yet. That said, I do have the core game and so I decided to paint up all of the figures to a table top standard as quickly as possible before my regular gaming group take the plunge and start the campaign:
Most of the sculpts and aesthetic are pretty old school, but it was a welcome break from the grind of painting a whole army for 30k/40k. The board gamer plastic needed minimal clean-up and most of the figures are just single piece casts with minimal flash & clean-up required beyond the occasional dip in boiling water before bending back into shape. On the whole this has been a welcome rest from the horrors of dealing with Mantic’s restic and much less work than assembling a complex GW style hard plastic kit.
