Mantic: Giant Renders for KoW: Vanguard

Mantic’s Kings of War: Vanguard has some new Giant models they are showing off – Check these out!

Kings of War: Vanguard is Mantic’s latest successful Kickstarter Project. It’s a 28mm tabletop fantasy skirmish game set in the Kings of War universe. You can check out their Kickstarter page for more info on it, but right now we wanted to point out the truly epic looking Giants that they are teasing:

Just a very quick update because we’ve got some good news regarding the plastic giant. It will now be coming with alternate arms and a head – so you’ve got some options when putting it together. You can also remove the fur pelt from around his neck too to help give multiple giants a different look.

We’ve also got some new renders, which are stunning!

Frost Giant:

Oh an in case you’re wonder how massive these are in scale, here is a picture of a 3D print:

That’s looking pretty good so far! If you’re interested, you should still be able to get things via their Backer Kit page.


What do you think of KoW: Vanguard? How about those giants?!

  • Chris

    Wow, those are surprisingly good sculpts for Mantic.

      I think that they’ve been upping their game recently. Hopefully they will go back over their old ranges and bring them up to the mark.

    • AEZ

      Yeah I’m usually completely underwhelmed by Mantic but these giants are awesome. I like them better than the GW giants which always have that slightly odd look which fits with the older destruction armies but less with the iron jaws.

    • AEZ

      I’m not quite sure that last one (a real model) is quite the same quality as the renders.. the body seems to have the same details but I’m not 100% sure the same goes for the arms, legs and face.
      But that frost giant render is awesome.

      • ZeeLobby

        Yeah. We’ll have to see how well the finals match they renders. It’s almost like they have an amazing design staff but then the goblins in the basement muck up the casting XD.

    These look great ! Also, bringing out a skirmish game set in the same universe as the ranked up game is the way to do it …not blowing up the world in order to create a skirmish game .
