This latest campaign will complete the current board game story arc and launch some exciting new additions to the franchise, including Hellboy: The Dice Game, which is a whole new way to explore the rich Hellboy universe.

In this Kickstarter, fans can complete the storyline in Hellboy: The Board Game with the Storm and the Fury expansion. Inspired by the graphic novel, in this epic conclusion to the saga, Hellboy will face his toughest foe yet: Nimue in her dragon form! This is not an experience for the faint of heart and features the biggest miniature Mantic has produced for Hellboy: The Board Game.

With the story complete, it’s time to move onto a whole new chapter. The PandemoniumHell on Earth, and End of Days expansions take their inspiration from the dramatic B.P.R.D. comics. With these new additions to the game, players can add new playable agents, new cinematic boss encounters, and vicious minions to their Case Files. Designed by original developers, Needy Cat Games, each of these expansions builds on the tension-packed co-operative experience of Hellboy: The Board Game but turns the danger up to 11, thanks to the all-new RAGNAROK mode. That’s right, saving the world just got a whole lot tougher.

But that’s not all! As part of this Kickstarter Mantic Games will also be funding the creation of Hellboy: The Dice Game. Created by Mantic Games, Hellboy: The Dice Game is a pick-up-and-play Hellboy experience for the whole family. In this push-your-luck game, you’ll have to decide when to take risks or play it safe, as you explore a mysterious location and encounter some of Hellboy’s most notorious foes.

Up to four people take control of iconic B.R.P.D. members––Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and Johann Kraus––before exploring gothic locations, uncovering ancient artefacts, and battling one of Hellboy’s most notorious foes, Rasputin! After launching in April 2019, the game is now available in multiple languages and has been reprinted several times after selling out worldwide.

Mantic Unveils XL Ships for Armada

The medium and large ships for Armada are pretty massive but they’re nothing compared to the Extra Large ships! Mantic has revealed four new extra large ships for Armada which are available for preorder now.

BASILEAN DICTATOR

Perhaps the largest and most powerful vessels in any human navy, these incredibly rare ships are a sight to behold. Despite their four masts, they are heavy and slow compared to other Basilean ships. The firepower of a Dictator-class is formidable to say the least, and their crews amongst the most disciplined in the fleet.

Pre-order it now for $29.99.

BASILEAN DICTATOR

ORC RIPPER HULK

The largest and most improbable orc vessels are the Ripper Hulks – and hulks they indeed are. Captained by the highest-ranking Krudger in the fleet, their tactics are simple but effective. In battle, they sail slowly and inexorably towards the biggest, baddest enemy ship they can reach, and set to work with their crude machinery.

Pre-order it now for $29.99.

ORC RIPPER HULK

EMPIRE OF DUST MONOLITH

The Monoliths – largest of the Ahmunite Warships – carry a portion of Nehkesharr’s power. Through the great temple of Shobik built upon their sterns, and the glimmering Jewels of Shobik embedded into the fabric of the vessels, these enormous galleys are true remnants of the necropolis-city.

Pre-order it now for $29.99.

EMPIRE OF DUST MONOLITH

DWARF DREADNOUGHT

These enormous vessels are the epitome of dwarf technology, and represent the life’s work of their Warsmith commanders. Their funnel-stacks belch thick smoke into the air as their enormous paddle-wheels propel the ship forward through a churning sea.

Pre-order it now for $29.99.

Mantic Games Reveals the Dwarf Fleet for Armada

Kicking off 2021, Mantic Games has revealed the Dwarf Fleet for Armada. The expansions will be released later this month but can be pre-ordered now.

The Dwarf Starter Fleet features 3 miniatures for the game. It is only due to lack of numbers that the dwarfs are not renowned as a sea power, for their ships, known as ironclads, are amongst the strongest in the world –wrought with the meticulous precision of the Warsmiths, powered by steam, and bristling with the most accurate cannon on the high seas.

Pre-Order: Mantic Games, Miniature Market, Amazon

Dwarf Starter Fleet

The Dwarf Booster Fleet features 4 miniatures. All dwarf vessels are armour-plated, smoke-belching paddle-steamers, and are treated with reverential pride by the crew. Every handle, wheel and valve is decorated with a Warsmith’s unique sigils; every rivet stamped with a seal of approval.

Pre-Order: Mantic Games, Miniature Market, Amazon

New Nightstalkers and Northern Alliance Comes to Kings of War in July

July is packed with new Kings of War releases from Mantic Games. There are five new releases for the Nightstalkers and Northern Alliance.

NIGHTSTALKER SOULFLAYERS

Death incarnate, the Soulflayers sit astride ghostly mounts whose six demonic hooves burn with a cold blue fire. Soulflayers and their steeds are borne across the mortal realms on invisible streams of evil, leaked from another plane, and can summon icy winds to chill a body but keep the mind alive and fresh for later.

NIGHTSTALKER SOULFLAYERS

NIGHTSTALKER DREADFIEND

The highly influential beings who weave lies and distrust are like beacons to the most powerful and wilful of the fiends. They wait in the shadows, watching and learning the weaknesses of their prey slowly plaguing their thoughts thriving on their fears of failure. When the time is ripe, these Dreadfiends creep through the smallest of cracks in the skin of the universe to claim their prey.

NIGHTSTALKER DREADFIEND

NORTHERN ALLIANCE CLANSMEN WITH TWO-HANDED WEAPONS

The humans of the north are tougher and stronger than those in the south*. They regularly take to the battlefield hefting great two-handed weapons, trusting to their hardy constitution and thick armour to deflect damage long enough to get them within arm’s reach of their foes – who are then brutally cleaved in two.

NORTHERN ALLIANCE CLANSMEN WITH TWO-HANDED WEAPONS

NORTHERN ALLIANCE PACK HUNTERS

Clansmen from across the wild lands learn to hunt not long after they learn to walk. While the Ice Kin favour the bow their heritage demands, the clans have a variety of tools at their disposal. From bows to javelins, suitable for taking down the larger prey that roam the tundra.

NORTHERN ALLIANCE PACK HUNTERS

NORTHERN ALLIANCE ICE NAIADS

There are Naiad populations spread all over the world, even beneath the polar ice. These beings have adapted to colder climate that dwell in and can survive near freezing temperatures both above and below the waves. Wielding weapons with crystalline ice blades many times harder than steel, these implacable beings fight alongside the warriors of the Alliance.
