Mantic Games have posted a preview of what the Dwarf King’s Hold game will look like while playing.

From their announcement:

We have a little sheet in Mantic Towers that lists the contents of what’s in the Dwarf King’s Hold game and, when we look over the quality of the figures (there’s nothing like having them in your hands.), the production values that have gone into the artwork and packaging, the rules and the way the game plays, it’s easy to think that this might just be the best darn thing to come out of Mantic yet.

So, here is an example of what a game of Dwarf King’s Hold will look like. Why not drop us a comment and let us know what you think.

Dwarf King’s Hold: Dead Rising will begin shipping on the 28th March and you can pre-order your copy on our website.

    Looks great! I can’t resist a good dungeon crawl.

    Looks fantastic! I’ll be picking this up on release.

  • Looks really nice.

    Glad to see Mantic is a Gaming Company and not just a Miniatures Company.

    Iterestingly enough – this looks interesting 🙂

    While their (Mantic) figures seem to be more redolent of the ‘heroscape olde school shtick’ than the elegant sculpture of Rackham’s defunct greatness – they share the same one-two punch.

    Make your minis and then launch a board game.

    It’s probably more common than I’m making out here. But still – I can’t look at that photo and not think Hybrid/Hybrid Nemesis.

    I’d rather play in a catacomb of crazy geneticists than in a LotR cliche; but still, if they make this with real thick board (rather than their home laser printed stock), and put neat stuff in the box it could be really neat! Let the year of the boxed sets continue 🙂

    As much as I want to like this, being a fan of dungeon gaming and dwarfs, I’m not thrilled with what I see. The tiles look thin and cheap and I don’t like the fact that the image bleeds to the edges. No walls I mean. Might look better on a black table. It all looks like something I could print on cardstock at home. But I guess unless we want to pay over $100 for a set, the good old days are gone. I’ll keep an open mind when it comes out and i can see some reviews of gameplay.

      The tiles look thin and cheap…

      I suspect that they may be playtest tiles.
