Review: Mierce Miniatures Mantichora

Back in the summer I was tempted by a pre-order on Mierce Miniatures for the new Mantichora, from their Darklands range.

Instead I’ve gathered a bit of a high level overview of all the campaign games I played, some key observations and commentary on the campaign implications of each game.

So this post is a bit naughty in couple of ways

  1. I’ve been playing (lots of) games and have more of a perspective on the different units than when I started. I’m writing this retrospectively as I think my initial reasoning was sound and what I’ve learnt since is a topic for another post.
