There's a lot of weird stuff out there. Strange, occult magic; evil, forgotten gods; hulking monsters. Best to have someone keep us safe. That's where the B.P.R.D. comes in. If you're looking to keep humanity safe, you'll want to check out The Wild Hunt, a new expansion for the Hellboy board game from Mantic that gives you three new case files to go on, as well as a new version of the big red guy himself to play as.
Many of you are Kings of War fans out there. You have your armies. You send them out on grand crusades for your side. You take time and care assembling and painting them. But maybe you want to get even more down in there with your forces. Well, you can do that with the Kings of War RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.
The undead are making their way to tabletops in Kings of War: Vanguard. Mantic has started taking orders for new figures over on their website. There's a mega-bundle, along with some support and trooper packs. Along with all that, there's the Ice & Iron book, including updated cards (or, if you just want the cards, you can order those, too).
When there's a new RPG out there on the block, you might be hesitant to rush in and get a full book for it, not knowing what the system is like. But many companies put out a Quickstart guide for you to look over. Red Scar Publishing has done just that for their Kings of War RPG, based on the world from the Mantic miniatures game. And it's free. So, why not go check it out?
Kings of War, the fantasy army combat game from Mantic, is getting a new edition soon (October, to be a little more specific). Making its way to 3rd edition, they look to make it the best fantasy minis game it can be, and have been going over the rules relentlessly in order to achieve that goal. They've also started giving us some previews, including a look at the rulebook as well as the upcoming Shadows in the North 2-player starter. Let's check 'em out.
You've played the miniatures game. Soon, you'll be able to create your own character and dive headlong into the realm of Mantic's Kings of War miniatures game, as Red Scar Publishing has announced that they've partnered with Mantic to create an RPG of the popular minis game. The Kings of War RPG will come to Kickstarter next month.
If you're a Kings of War: Vanguard player and you've been itching for some new miniatures and even a new faction to try out, you're in luck. The tides are rising and the sea's coming in. The Trident Realms are making their way to the game. You can pick up your model kits now, including some online exclusive army bundles from Mantic directly.
The undead are amassing. They're hungry. Hungry for human flesh! Unfortunately, that's what you're made out of. As such, you're #1 on the menu. Thankfully, you've still got your wits about you, and you are more than capable of beating the walking dead... right? Well, that's what you'll be finding out in The Walking Dead: Call to Arms, the new skirmish game available to pre-order from Mantic Games.
Getting an army all at once saves a lot of time and effort. You make a single purchase and boom, you're ready to go (after the glue dries, of course). That's the offer that Mantic is giving you right now, with a pair of Basilean army bundles for Kings of War. Get a whole army in a single go.
Things are hotting up over on the Deadzone battlefields. Reinforcements are being brought in. New tactics are being tried. And things are building in intensity. Commanders can now get their Deadzone: Command Protocols: Escalation books from Mantic Games. There's new units. There's newly updated stats. There's new scenarios. It's a lot.
Things are heating up in the Deadzone. Factions are getting reinforcements and the battles are becoming bigger than ever. Mantic's been working hard on their sci-fi miniatures game, and a new expansion will soon be hitting shelves. You can check out the new book as well as a bunch of new minis, as well as get your name on the list to get them as soon as they're available.
It doesn't even really sound all that nice, honestly.
Oh well. We'll make it through and back towards the weekend. Starting out, though, we've gotta make your tabletops look good.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Waterloo Terrain Available From Brigade Models, Pre-Orders Open For Mantic's Terrain Crate 2, New Infinity Terrain Available From TTCombat, and Hive City Residence Available From Tabletop Scenics.
"Fight fire with fire." That's sort of the unofficial tagline of the BPRD. If there's weird, metaphysical and supernatural stuff going down, why not have weird, metaphysical and supernatural stuff fight it? That's what you'll be doing in Hellboy: the Board Game. It's available now from Mantic.
There's a new Hellboy movie in theaters. And there can soon be a new Hellboy board game on your tabletops. Mantic is taking pre-orders for their Hellboy board game. And it's not just the retail version. They've got a few, limited edition versions with some of the Kickstarter goodies in there as well that you can get. So, even if you missed out back then, there's a last chance to get in on it now.
Mantic is looking to get back to nature, and they're wanting you to come along. They've released their Kings of War: Vanguard Forces of Nature Warband Set, which has everything you need to get natural on the tabletop. If you act now, you can even end up with a free Salamander Veteran miniature. Who doesn't like getting free extra stuff?
We continue on with this incredibly busy week. Step by step, we climb the mountain. Speaking of mountains, let's talk about gaming terrain. We've gotta make your gaming tables look good.
In the Terrain Corner today we have: Tabletop Scenics Previews March Releases, New Pledge Level Added to TerrainCrate 2 Kickstarter, New Blood Bowl Mats From Deep-Cut Studio, and Mantic Games Teams with Warlord Games In Terrain Crate 2 Kickstarter.
We're slowly making our way there. The weekend is in sight. At least, I think that's the weekend. It's been hard to tell with all the rain we've been getting. Not that I mind the rain, of course... except when I have to drive... But through the torrential downpour, I'm still here to make your gaming tables look as god as possible.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Mantic's Terrain Crate 2 Kickstarter Launches Today, New Overlord Terrain Maps From Pwork Wargame, and New Gangs of Rome Playmat from Deep-Cut Studio.
Are you afraid of the dark? Do you worry about whatever went bump in the night? If you're living in the Kings of War universe, you should be. These creatures of terror are massing and heading onto the field of battle as the Nightstalkers. Mantic is taking pre-orders for this new faction now.
A whole new faction is making their way onto tabletops in Kings of War: Vanguard. The dwarves have been roused from their mountain strongholds and are setting on the path to conflict. In this article from Mantic Games, you can check out not only the new figures, but take a look at some new Mercenary models that could be joining them, or you, for the right price.
Something big is happening over in Mantic's Kings of War: Vanguard. Well... it's big, but it's also small. Dwarves are making their way into the game. We get a look at how this new faction works, along with a look at several of the figures in this preview over on Mantic's page.
Mantic has released their new game based on The Walking Dead series. It's called Here's Negan and it puts players in the role of henchmen in his organization, looking to do evil deeds, and gain reputation with the big baddie himself. Just watch out, as your opponents will be looking to cut you down to size if ever given the opportunity.
I don't know if I'd say that Hellboy was "a right jolly old elf," but I also wouldn't go up to his face and tell him that. If he wants to play Santa, he can play Santa. And you can do, if you order the limited edition Holiday Hellboy miniature for the Hellboy game from Mantic. You can get your name put down on the "Nice" list now.
I could sit here and post a Black Friday Sale post every half-hour and still be at it for days, it seems. So, instead, I'm bundling all the ones I'm coming across together here for you. Peruse at your leisure.
Someone decided it needed to be Monday again. While I'm not all that thrilled with the decision, I do know that it's going to be a short week. So that's gonna be good. Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the US, and so I'll be off Thursday and Friday, just chillin' and trying to avoid all the fracas at the Maul. In the meantime, though, let's get your gaming tables lookin' as good as my dining room table will be this Thursday.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Frosty Plain Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, TerrainCrate Town & Battlefield available to order now, and Hive City Habitat Available From Tabletop Scenics.
It's... there. I mean, it's hard to hate it, as it's not really the start of the week. All of that loathing goes to Monday. But there's not much else going on with it. It's not the middle of the week, really. It's just... Tuesday. I know Arthur could never really get a handle on Thursdays, but I think Tuesdays are the ones I have the toughest time with. Better listen to some gaming podcasts.
Today on the dial we have: Game Classy Episode 173: We're Back; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 49 - Essen 2018 preview; Drive Thru FM Episode 20: Top 10 Anticipated Essen 2018 Games; Mantic Radio Episode 14; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 133: The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31; The Secret Cabal Episode 169: Eschaton, Folklore the Affliction and a Short Topic Extravaganza; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 156: Igancy, Monolith Arena, Imperial Settlers Amazons; Singled Out Episode 76: Talking Season 4 Union with Jason Mountain; Geeks of the North Episode 50: Hobby rooms; and Guilds of the North Episode 12: Welcome to Season 4.
