Crazy Sprue Deal Contents!

A few weeks ago Mantic announced that they were pushing back their open day (Boo!), but to apologise they would instead run their fantastic 'Crazy Sprue Deal' for a week (Yay!).

For those of you who haven't heard of the infamous 'Crazy Sprue Deal', I'll explain. It's an offer that occasionally pops up on Mantic's site whereby you can buy 20 random plastic sprues for £20 and for an extra fiver they'll even throw in a canvas messenger bag.

Each Mantic sprue contains parts for 2-10 miniatures so you know that you will receive at least 40 and as many as 200 miniatures for your £20.

If you want a little sample of each of the major Mantic armies then this deal is perfect. Undead, Orcs, Dwarfs and Elves for Kings of War and Forge Fathers and Marauders for Warpath all have plastic sprues.

Here's a list of what I got in my box of goodies:


Forge Fathers
Steel Warriors (2 minis)

Orx Troop (3 minis)
Orx Command x 3 (6 minis)

Kings Of War

Skeleton Command (10 minis)
Revenant Troop (10 minis)
Zombie Sprues x 2 (6 minis)
Ghouls (2 minis)

Ax Troop x 2 (6 minis)

Spearmen Command (10 minis)
Bowmen Troop (10 minis)
Scouts (2 minis)
Bolt Thrower Crew (2 minis)
Bolt Thrower

Ironclad  (5 minis)
Cannon/Organ Gun Crew (2 minis)
Cannon/Organ Gun

That's 76 miniatures and 2 war machines in total. Not too shabby for £20 I reckon, especially seeing as it works out at about 26p a miniature! Not too shabby at all.

Now I just need to find the time to paint them all...
