Been waiting to take a look at the minis from the upcoming Sci-fi miniatures game from Manticgames?  Lets take a gander at a final painted Forgefather Hero miniature…

original concept art

On first glance, its got a good sense of mass without being a barrel on toothpicks which you often see in other Dwarf fanges.  It paints up nicely, and I could definitely imagine this ending up as a good looking force on the tabletop. Now we’ve finally gotten to see a full set of Warpath workflows from concept all the way to painted model.  Mantic seems to have gotten a good handle on navigating that visual to sculptural path. 

Designwise, I stand by my previous thoughts of this range sitting right on the razor’s edge between high fantasy/steampunk and hard sci-fi.  One could use these minis in a wide variety of settings, which may have been a secondary design goal from the get go.

You can find out even more about Warpath on BoLS here, and on the Mantic site here.  They have a newsletter you can sign up for also.  You can check out the upcoming Warpath release schedule here.

~So what’s your take on these?  Compare and contrasts are always welcome.  Expect more soon…
