There are just 2 days until we close off all available discounted Early Bird Pledge levels on the Mars Attacks Kickstarter meaning you’ve got until Midnight Sunday to get yours!

At the time of writing, all of the $100 The Will of Manlevels are gone so you’re going to have to be quick to get hold of the discounted The Invaders Arrive level – did we mention we’re now funding a giant stompy robot?!

Don’t forget that if you pledge before Sunday 27th October, you’ll also get a brand new BONUS General Tor in alternate pose figure for free so you best get in quick!

Move, move, move Soldiers – and grab yourself a deal before they’re all sold out!

Warriors beyond compare

Elven bows are priceless weapons of beauty and deadly precision. 

This was our first bit of background to be included on a newsletter – the second ever Mantic newsletter – and it was all to do with the Elf Bowmen.

Four years after it first started, as this month’s Kings of War new release, we’re refreshing the Elf rangewith brand new packaging, and adding some new plastic additions and metal heroes!

NEW! Plastic Stormwind Cavalry

NEW! Plastic Palace Guard

NEW! The Green Lady

NEW! El’rik Nilseen

We’ve redesigned the packaging for the Elf Spearmen, Bowmen and Bolt Thrower, as well as increased the size of the Scout Patrol to regiment size – these kits include some great options like cats, broken weapons, casualty markers and quivers, making them versatile and flexible. Perfect for starting a new Elf army or expanding an existing collection.

You can of course go big and get a whole new army in our great value one player battle sets and excellent Army Set.

Pre-order the new Elves on the website now and check out our Elf previews on the blog for more!

I'm Mad Dave one of the team's growing collection of tabletop gaming nerds. I was raised on a healthy diet of TV like Blake 7, Doctor Who and Star Trek with a side of sword and sorcery / sc-fi movies and a large dollop of board games like Cluedo, RISK and Hero Quest. You know your a gaming nerd if: You bring toy soldiers to work? You bring toy soldiers to work and you work has nothing to do with toy soldiers? Most of you jackets / coats have dice in one of the pockets? You hate throwing away packaging because you know it's actually a ruined building or field generator? You have a collection of old packaging? You can find something relevant to your hobby i.e. books, magazines, figures etc in almost every room in your house? I no I'm a nerd because I've done all of the above, how many of these made you smile and nod yes to?
