Hellboy: The Board Game on Kickstarter from Mantic Games

May 2, 2018

Inspired by the legendary tales of horror, myth and folklore by Mike Mignola, Hellboy: The Board Game is a fully cooperative experience for 1 to 4 players. You become a member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence (BPRD), ready to investigate occult threats that threaten our very existence. You will explore gothic locations, hunt down clues, discover artefacts, fight horrific creatures and face off against terrifying bosses.

Designed by James M. Hewitt – the brains behind the likes of DreadBall, Blood Bowl 2016, Necromunda: Underhive, and Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower – Hellboy: The Board Game features incredibly detailed, pre-assembled PVC plastic miniatures that capture the unique look and feel of Mike Mignola’s visionary work.

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.

New Warpath Vehicle Releases for August from Mantic

August 6, 2017

August is an exciting month for Warpath fans, as it sees the release of brand new hard plastic vehicles from Mantic Games.

Whether it’s the Enforcer Interceptor soaring over the battlefield, or the heavily armoured Forge Father Sturnhammer rumbling across terrain; the introduction of vehicles promises to open up a totally new dynamic to Warpath.

These releases will be some of the most affordable sci-fi vehicles on the market, once again ensuring Mantic’s reputation for offering great miniatures at a fantastic price.

In Warpath, you take command of entire units, as you plan your tactics to claim strategic objectives and carve a path to victory! The game has been designed to play massive sci-fi wargames on an epic scale, with 100s of miniatures lining the tabletop, but the intuitive rules ensure gameplay is still exceptionally fast and fluid.

From August 4th, Mantic will be adding the following vehicles to its range:

Sturnhammer Battle Tank £24.99/€34.99/$39.99

Armed with a main battery of Heavy Hailstorm Cannons and clad in armour capable of withstanding all but the most powerful and well-placed blasts, the Sturnhammer inexorably carries the might of the Forge Fathers to war.

Drakkar APC £19.99/€24.99/$29.99

The Drakkar’s sloped, reinforced armour makes it one of the toughest troop delivery vehicles on any battlefield anywhere. With a Hailstorm anti-personnel weapon to discourage any assailants along the way, the vehicle is an extremely safe and reliable transport for platoons of Steel Warriors and Forge Guard.

Hultr Half-Track £14.99/€19.99/$24.99

Powerful engines and adaptable treads allow the Hultr Half-Track to react to the flow of battle fluidly, supporting the Forge Father lines with its Hailstorm or Magma Cannon.

Accuser Interceptor/Persecutor Bomber £24.99/€34.99/$39.99

The Galactic Co-Prosperity Sphere’s most advanced military demands equally advanced air support. The Accuser and Persecutor wings fulfill this task faultlessly, claiming air superiority for the Enforcers below.

Arbiter Interceptor £29.99/€39.99/$49.99

The Arbiter swaps the Accuser’s Burst Lasers in favour of twin Polaris Cannons, delivering a heavy punch against armoured targets in swift ground-to-air strikes few enemies can counter.

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!
