Since I posted that article on Thursday, there’s been a whirlwind of hobby activity in the Mantic office! It all began as we ran around the warehouse like giddy children, picking our Faction Starters from the myriad boxes. Everything had just arrived, and hadn’t been properly sorted out, so each starter was split across several different stacks; the rafters rang with cries of “I’ve just found Ripper Suits!” and “Can anyone see a Teraton?” Sure enough, it didn’t take me long to pull everything apart and have a good look.

It didn’t take long for the boss to follow suit:

Ronnie’s Enforcer Faction Starter (well, part of it, at least!) 

Studio Manager Stewart also got involved, but (being the organised, careful sort that he is) carefully bagged them back up before I could snap them.

Over the next couple of weeks I’ll keep on updating the blog, hopefully culminating in a proper battle report or two once everything’s built and painted! Our deadline for assembly is the Mantic Open Day, so we should have them on display somewhere – make sure you check them out if you’re coming along! In the meantime, you can pre-order your own Deadzone kits here!
