From today you’ll be able to pick up the latest Vanguard faction, the mighty Dwarfs, plus the awesome 7-inch tall plastic fantasy Giant. Either order from your friendly local gaming store or head to the Mantic website to order yours. Let’s take a look at all this week’s new releases:
The Dwarf Warband Set is the perfect place to start your Vanguard Dwarf collection. Inside you’ll find 10 resin and hard plastic miniatures, plus 21 Warband Cards to give you the stats for your new warband.
Knorri Ironheart’s personal battle armour, his Steel Juggernaut, has divided opinion amongst the clan lords. Some have placed orders for their own personalised versions, or have their own engineers scrambling to copy the design. Others see it as an affront to warfare and the armour of a coward.
Dedicated to the Fulgria, the Goddess of White Fire, the mysterious Flame Priests are able to harness and channel fire into weaponry. They use their knowledge to destroy as the dwarf Warsmiths use the same powers to create masterworks of metal and engineering.
Younger dwarfs often mock packmasters for work they consider to be beneath a warrior. Such mockery lasts only until the packmaster sets his charges loose – a pack of purebred war dogs with sharp teeth and a taste for ankles.
Shieldbreakers are aggressive fighters, with little to no thought of self-defence. Often encountered on the front lines of an army, these belligerent warriors can also be found joining an advance party; to clash with the enemy all the faster.
Veteran marksmen, the Ironwatch spend years mastering their weapons. Having fought in wars for many decades, their experience and skill are invaluable tools to any warband, although the black powder rifles they sometimes bear are appreciated, too.
Dwarf Reinforcement Pack – Induction into a dwarf hold’s military is a long and difficult process, for their masters are nothing if not strict and stubborn. Civilian aspirants must each serve years as a Levy – under the stern watch of Ironclad warriors – fighting in small skirmishes until they are deemed ready for true war.
Firebrand is a legendary corsair, renowned for breath-taking feats of bravery, swashbuckling action, and daring escapades. Her fantastically exciting life and phenomenal skills are what all other salamander corsairs aspire to.
On the battlefield the combination of Kuzlo‘s unpredictable magic and Madfall’s even more unpredictable tendency to eat anyone that gets too close is a dangerous one… to foes and allies alike.
Ice Elementals are a rarity in Mantica, able to be summoned only in the frozen northern realms. Sustained by the magic of the Ice Kin, they can be led to war in any environment.
A giant is a huge humanoid, a veritable mountain of bone, sinew, and flesh with a massive appetite. The brain of a giant is way too small to properly control the creature’s huge body. However, when goaded in the right direction, these dumb brutes are a terrible threat to any foe.
