Mantic Previews New Agents for Hellboy: The Board Game

Mantic is looking to expand the BPRD with a new batch of agents. They'll be running a Kickstarter for an expansion for Hellboy: The Board Game. You can get a look at some of the new agents in this preview.

From the article:

Today we’re starting a series of blogs detailing what’s coming up in the new Hellboy: The Board Game Kickstarter. Just in case you’ve been under a rock for the past few weeks, this new Kickstarter is going to fund new cases, new Agents, new minions and new bosses! All of these can be combined with the existing game to create your own new adventures.

We’ve worked with James and Sophie at Needy Cat Games once again on these new elements and this time they enlisted the assistance of Hellboy: The Board Game Super Agent, Edwin Moriarty. Over the next few days, Edwin will be delving into the new expansions to explain what makes them so exciting! Today, he’s starting with End of Days, which adds new Agents. Over to you Edwin…

One of the things I love most about the Mignolaverse is how varied it is. Not only is there a horrific array of villains great and small, but the protagonists vary just as much. Hellboy is just one of a fantastic cast, and, I was massively excited to get to work on an expansion for the Board Game that focused on some of the other heroes in the comics.

End of Days puts the spotlight on the BPRD and the agents that work for it. I got the chance to not only create versions of fan favourites from later story arcs, but also to introduce some of my favourite characters to the game. Part of the goal with these expansions was to dial up the power level a bit. That meant providing tougher challenges, and agents who could meet them face on. I want to pick just two of the new agents to focus on here, and give you a preview of how much fun these characters will be to run.
