Mantic Undead Army

Work continues on the Vampire Count Mantic Army.  I'm well into putting together the Undead Death Kings Cabal and a unit of Skeleton archers together.  I've also assembled the Undead Revenant cavalry and this was the first time I've had the chance to work with Mantic's hybrid resin & plastic material.  I will spare you the full review but suffice to say that I am very impressed with this kit.  With a little clean up with a hobby knife and some CA glue the kit went together very easily.  A day later the joints seem fairly strong with no pinning required.  That being said I do have two minor gripes.  One is that I would have preferred Mantic style bases instead of the thin stock bases from Renedra.  My other gripe is the standard bearer arm was kind of finicky to attach to the torso but with.  All of that withstanding I really like how this kit looks and I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on a unit of Soul Reaver knights.
