They’re green… they’re vicious and they’re ready to fight… if you have the cash!
Andy, Ronnie and Alessio discuss the Marauders and what those green-guys like to do for fun.
Seems more than the Forgefathers, the Marauders would fit that little bit better with the ethos of charge forwards and roll a load of dice to see what chaos you can create lol.
Bad joke alert: I think these Marauders are looking rather Orx-some!
I can hear the collective groans all ready, lol Can’t wait to see their vehicles as well as these fully sculpted, these are going to be great!
Worse joke alert…
If you have a problem, and no-one else can help, and you can afford them, maybe you can hire…
The ORX Team (dakkadakkadakka)
da dada, da da da, dada da da da da, da da dada da…
Pity the A Team reference was slightly ignored in the video. Loved it myself!
When will we see some Miniatures?
@majordutch – shame on you
I’m one of those guys that like variety, so I will always find room for some of these guys – it depends on the models though Mantic, if they look like the sketches and have the same detail as your fantasy range (which I’m sure they will) – I’m in.
As an aside: Do they really need to be called Orx? Really? There’s nothing wrong with Orc or Orcs or Orc’s. It’s like ‘Nu Metal’ – yeah it’s new, but it’s not as good as Metal, even with the postmodern spelling. You know what? I’m not even going to paint mine green – it’s classic psycho-monkey brown for me
Lol I know, I can’t help making a bad joke; it sounded so bad in my head I had to say it lol
If I were painting them, I’m thinking commando skin cammo for the Maruaders, since they seem to be collectively more intelligent than the 40K Orks, who have just one clan, the BloodAxes who have Imperium style cammo, it’s not quite used for it’s real purpose, more as decoration. But with these Marauder Orx, I think using some darker stripes on their skin and clothing/weapons could look cool and fit in with the first few ideas we’ve just heard about them.
If only there was a free sprue of Marauders from Mantic through Wayland Games or a competition in BoW’s Turn8 show to win and try out some paint schemes on, we could see how it looks. Hmm, if only… Hint. Hinty hint! Hint! Might be wishful thinking, but then again, Mantic are awesome and might do something like that anyway.
Concept art looks great! Like the “powered claw”, can never have enough of those
I might paint mine in human flesh colours – good idea on the colour change lol.
ah so confirmed for space elves. ronnie slipped it around 1:30 on the video
Yeah, but he said they really distanced themselves from the society and such … perhaps they roam the galaxy in search of trees to hug …
I imagine every army from KoW will get a duplicate sci-fi army in Warpath – be interesting to see what else they come out with though, like if they make some more ‘mercenary’ style units that can be drafted into any army.
i kinda hope thats not the case 100%. im worried that there will be factions of ‘evils’, like chaos or something. that would be too much like 40k. just having a morally corrupt corporation and hardlined mercenaries is good enough. i like scifi where evil is not so defined, where its not too obvious. even the forgefathers could be considered evil in the sense that they just strip mine every planet they come accross like locusts.
so not having a definite good/evil sets of factions would be idea. so no abyssal forgefathers etc. (dont get me wrong, i love abyssal dwarfs in KoW, but not for warpath)
EVERY ARMY? Mmmmmm… Undead in Spaaaaace… with guns…. http://www.mutantpedia.com/Immagini,%20Avatar%20e%20Video/Immagini%20Mutant%20Chronicles/Varie/color/NECRO1_J.jpg
In the forgefather video he said there will be a races video for backstagers. Mind you I don’t know where the forgefathers video went…
Yer just did a search and now I can’t find it either lol. Guess it got buried when other videos went up….also another reason for me to get my act together and get a backstage pass heh. Eventually lol
I’d paint them purple!
My 9 year old daughter who is a big fan of rats (both living and plastic) asked if you could do “VERMIN IN SPACE”.
Orx good. Me like. Orx might make good conversion. Also good. Waaaaaagggghhhhhhhhhh!
Im about to give up with Mantic allready. Only placed two orders so far, first was missing stuff and the paint ruined etc. Now my second order is been ‘awaiting dispatch’ for two weeks now! The figures are ok though, not the best by a mile but remember these are budget versions. But think ill go back to them we dont speak off, least i always get what i ordered and in good time etc.
the orcs are coming runnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn cant wait to see them
They look a lot like the alien grunt troopers from the Fifth Element. I might paint mine to match them.
Just don’t paint a red button on the side of their gun!
“Perfect. Akanit, take command. Go to Fhloston and retrieve the Forgefather relics. If the Corporation really wants them, they’ll have to…negotiate. Revenge…is at hand!”
Marauders are far closer in character to Mangalores than Orks in my mind. After all the big guns are just called ‘big shell guns’ not ‘stompy dakkashootas’.
And whilst it’s still fresh in my mind…
How else do you think the Corporation deals with these guys?
I hope this vid embeds…I haven’t tried that yet.
Man I really wish they were not doing fantasy in space
Not really into tolkein in space type settings, but I like the idea of the corporation and the designs are decent even though not my taste – give me some eldritch tentacled lovecraftian aliens and I’m in though. Shoggoths innnn spaaaaaaace FTW!
All I can say is ho hum, if I wanted 40k I’d play 40k.
make your own rules up then! At least this way you’ll get a huge amount of cheap plastics to draw on.
Time for the models to be seen. Give us a pic guys.
Dwarfs are usually my race of choice but Im thinking Orx
i want all the armies =x
So we have Squats, Space Marines/Imperial Guard, Tyranids, Orks, and Eldar. I guess it’s too much to hope for something original in Warpath, isn’t it.
I sooooooooo hope there will be an undead army, then i will definately start warpath. Whats better then a zombie?? HORDES OF ZOMBIES!!! ZOMBIES FTW!!! WOOOOOOH!!!
