  • Mantic Orcling minis

    The way it is now you can only buy orcling units with the big army sets. Why doesn't Manitc release orcling units to be bought separately. I would totally buy some. They obviously have the minis so I don't understand why they don't want my money.

    Orclings don't have a sprue of their own but are sprinkled out onto the sprues of other kits.
    So to sell orclings separately they'd need to tool a new separate plastic kit, or make molds to produce orclings in metal/resin,

      They could sell the ones from DS, thou. A pack of 3 monopose orcling swarms. Not ideal, but helpful.

        I guess.
        It would be nice with a pack with some of those swarms and a few single orclings with new poses to mix in with the HIPS orclings to get some more variety.

        I could see that being offered eventually, but it's probably low in priority since most people seem to think they have enough orclings through their orc kits. (although I suspect people should perhaps use more orclings than what they do now. They're great batteries for godspeakers if nothing else )

          And if I were to buy say a regiment of orc greatax how many orclings would I get?

            12 I think.

            See:
            http://www.manticgames.com/mantic-sh...and-sprue.html has 2.
            http://www.manticgames.com/mantic-sh...tax-sprue.html has 1.
            http://www.manticgames.com/mantic-sh...-ax-sprue.html has 2.

            The greatax regiment includes 10 greatax sprue and 1 command sprue.

              One Orcling is prone and another is mooning - not a fan. It would have been great if the Orclings were a separate sprue that could have been included in the Orc sets, and then sold separately.
              To defend: this is the pact. But when life loses its meaning and is taken for naught,then the pact is to avenge!
