Mantic Games Elves command sprue and bases

Last month I showed you a pre-production sprue of the Mantic Elves spearmen. Well actually that sprue comes together with another one in the same box: the command sprue, which I want to show you now. I've only took pictures of half the sprue, since the other half is identical to the regular spearmen sprue. I can't really add much to my previous review... the molding is excellent again and here too there are plenty of options and extra bits. Check them out:



I've also received a lot of questions concerning the size of the bases and how they compare to those of Games Workshop. They measure 20 x 20 mm and have straight edges. For a comparison: check out the pictures below.

Why did you compare the Mantic 20mm bases against a GW 25mm base instead of a GW 20mm base?

This will give some people the impression that the Mantic bases are the wrong size when in fact they are exactly right for High Elves in Warhammer Fantasy Battle.

Because people asked me to.

Looking good.

Now if they expand their lines out a bit, I'll be very interested.

I know I shouldn't start anymore projects but I'm really tempted to put together a little Elf force to give these minis a spin.

The little extra details like the pets etc. on the sprues are quite a pull for me.

Could you show some pictures with a fully assembled Mantic Elf Standing Next to a GW High Elf for hight comparison? I've heard they are a good bit shorter than their GW counterparts.

I don't own any GW Elves, sorry.

But I can confirm the Mantic Elves are a lot skinnier and smaller than the GW ones.
