Mantic Games Ghouls

Now that I had gotten a few warbands together for Frostgrave, I wanted to round out my collection some with extra creatures. Looking for appropriate models for ghouls was a challenge, especially those that would work on a budget. I was able to track down a few loose sprues of Mantic Games figures for their Kings of War line.

The minis are pretty nice and offer an overall feel of the model scrambling forward in a full out run. It’s not some figure making a static pose. These look like they are hauling ass towards someone. While they don’t have a lot of variation, I like the lively action the figures portray.

I gave them a quick coat with a wash and a bit of drybrushing. You’ll notice I steer away from your typical ice and snow covered scheme. I use an alternate world for my Frostgrave games. Mostly to stretch out the figures I already had for other systems.

They assembled well and you could easily swap out heads and torsos from the legs. The minis appear to be impaled with knives and other hand weapons which are jutting out from their arms and legs. The figures also have a fair amount of ripped clothing and cloth which break up the skin. Easily you could put more detail on the clothing to make them stand out more over the model’s flesh. I just went with a simple color scheme though.

Decent detail, easy to assemble, and a good price. Worth picking up for Frostgrave critters.
