Clash of Kings 2018 Available Now from Mantic

Jan 25, 2018

Mantic Games is pleased to announce that the new Clash of Kings supplement is available now. The 72-page supplement includes new units, faction changes, refreshed spells and more for the mass fantasy battle game Kings of War.

After the success of the Clash of Kings supplement in 2017, Mantic went back to the drawing board for the latest edition. Using data from tournaments around the world, the Kings of War Rules Committee looked closely at those units that needed to be re balanced to ensure Kings of War remains competitive (and fun). This means there are more than double the amount of unit amends in the latest edition.

What’s more, after launching the idea of formations in the Edge of the Abyss summer campaign, Clash of Kings 2018 expands upon the idea and introduces brand new formations for all factions in Kings of War. Alongside this there are new Living Legends for a range of armies, including a massive catapult for the goblins and a gigantic Fire Elemental for the Forces of Nature.

But Clash of Kings isn’t the only big change for Kings of War in 2018. Also launching this week are the brand new Battlefield Cards. This deck of cards adds new objectives to battles, random events and new strategies to push your armies to the limit. Using the Battlefield Cards will ensure that no two games ever play the same!

Clash of Kings 2018 Edition has an RRP of £14.99/€19.99/$24.99 while the Battlefield Cards have an RRP of £7.99/€10.99/$12.99. Both are available in stores now.

Kings of War launched on Kickstarter

November 16th, 2014

Mantic got their new Kings of War Kickstarter launched and it’s already fully funded and then some.

Kings of War is the two-player fantasy miniatures game where epic armies of brave warriors and devastating cavalry clash against powerful wizards and fantastical monsters – all on your tabletop.

As the general of a mighty army, you will build your force by collecting new units of troops – and lead them to battle using the game’s simple rules, seeking victory and the spoils of war!

This Kickstarter is to fund the 2nd Edition Kings of War Hardback Rulebook, a new tome that will build on the previous edition to create a bigger and better game.

It will include:

Enhanced Game Play – with improvements to the rules to improve the strategy, speed and simplicity in the game.
Refreshed Army Lists – all armies will be updated and rebalanced, and new units and new armies will be added to the core rulebook.
Fantastic New Art – an update to the art library throughout the book to bring the world to life.
Develop the Background – exploring the fantasy world and each of the factions like never before.
and more!

Kings of War 2nd Edition grew out of gamer demand. After thousands of games and numerous tournaments played across the globe over the last 4 years the gaming community saw opportunity to streamline and develop the rules and army lists to an even higher level. The new rule set will allow you to play exciting games with huge armies – from start to finish in an evening. The background will let you engross yourself in the world of Kings of War and its history, and study your opponent’s force and the units at his disposal – so you can plan their defeat!
