It’s always a joy to spin down to the Mantic Bunker, and Saturday 26th November saw myself, a slew of other Mantic Pathfinders, a ton of visitors, and a few Mantic dignitaries arriving in Bulwell ready for this Winter’s Mantic Open Day.
The Mantic Open Day is a bi-annual event, showcasing Mantic’s newest product, giving folks a chance to get involved with demonstration and participation games, have a sneak peak at forthcoming releases and enjoy seminars and the opportunity to corner such Mantic luminaries as Jake Thornton, Alessio Cavatore, Matt Gilbert, Stewart Gibbs, Zak Gucklhorn, Dave Symonds and, of course, the legendary Ronnie Renton.
This November’s event was no exception to the usual high quality entertaining Open Day that Mantic consistently run!
Attendee’s at the Open Day had the opportunity to participate and view the following inspirational and aspirational games;
Mantic’s: The Walking Dead
The newest edition to the Mantic ‘stable’ – the Walking Dead: All Out War based on the hit comic and tv series.
Kings of War: Dragon’s Eyrie
A Kings of War battle with a twist – standard Kings of War rules, but with flyer heavy army lists (and Dragons…) fought over a range of cloud covered mountain peaks.
Kings of War: Big Battle
Members from a local club brought down a Kings of War demonstration game, where attendees could watch them battle across 12”x4” of table, using a range of armies from Mantica!
Alex ‘9″ Roller’ Hadfield’s Zombie Painting Demonstrations
All attendee’s at the Open Day were given a promotional zombie, and the opportunity to paint them, under the guidance of expert painter Alex ‘9″ Roller’ Hadfield.
A number of forthcoming releases and painted studio figures were on display;
All in all, the Mantic Open was a joy to attend. The next Open Day should be in May of 2017 – Hope to see you there!
