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 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.

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 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 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.

The Whisperers Comes to Mantic’s Walking Dead Miniature Games this August

Mantic Games has teased its releases for the next few months and the anticipated The Whisperers are coming to their Walking Dead tabletop miniature games.

Available in August, The Whisperers is a brand new faction that will be split across two sets – a faction starter and faction booster. Both packs will come with the cards required to play the Whisperers in All Out War and Call to Arms.

The Whisperers are joined by The Walking Dead Anthology. This is a supplement that’s been asked for numerous times by the community. It brings together all the expansions in one handy book, plus a bunch of new scenarios. It comes in at a mighty 170+ pages and will be an absolute must-have for any TWD fan.

Giant Robot Hellboy Comes to Hellboy: The Board Game for Charity Plus Create Your Own Missions, Hecate, and Baba Yaga

Mantic Games has announced it is working with Dark Horse Comics and visionary comic creator Mike Mignola to help raise money for charity with the release of Giant Robot Hellboy–a new playable character for Hellboy: The Board Game. What’s more, players of Hellboy: The Board Game will soon be able to create their own missions with the release of the B.P.R.D. Archives expansion.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, Mike Mignola has been entertaining fans with new illustrations nearly each day. These range from characters from the Mignolaverse to icons in popular culture. However, one of the most eye-catching was Giant Robot Hellboy–a massive mechanical version of Hellboy. 

Each limited-edition Giant Robot Hellboy will be handmade in resin by the team at Mantic Games. It will be a new playable character that can be used to play Hellboy: The Board Game in solo mode. After all, a huge robot isn’t likely to need a great deal of help dispatching the forces of evil
For each Giant Robot Hellboy sold, 10% of the proceeds will be donated to World Central Kitchen–the same charity Mike Mignola has been raising money for with his charity auctions during the COVID-19 outbreak. World Central Kitchen has served more than 10 million meals to students, families in need, seniors, and frontline healthcare heroes in North America and Spain during the pandemic.

  • Giant Robot Hellboy

The limited-edition Giant Robot Hellboy is available to pre-order now for $44.99. The miniature will be available to order throughout June and is expected to start shipping in late July, depending upon demand.

Hellboy Heads to Mexico in the Hellboy: The Board Game Expansion

Hellboy in Mexico

Mantic Games has announced a new limited-edition expansion for Hellboy: The Board Game is in stores now. Working with visionary creator Mike Mignola and Dark Horse Comics, Mantic has created Hellboy in Mexico featuring new heroes, new missions and new terrifying villains.

Previously only available as an optional extra in the Kickstarter campaign, this limited-edition expansion tells the story of Hellboy’s lost period in Mexico, when he became a Mexican wrestler, fought vampires alongside three luchador brothers and faced off against the horrifying Camazotz – a giant wrestling vampire bat!

Available direct from Mantic Games or from gaming stores around the world, Hellboy in Mexico is a limited-edition, one-print expansion that will not be available again once it has sold out.

Hellboy: The Board Game is a cooperative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous 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 artifacts and battling one of Hellboy’s most notorious foes, Rasputin! After launching in April 2019, the game is now available in multiple languages (French, Italian, Brazilian and Russian) and is on its third reprint after selling out worldwide.

Hellboy Gets a Statue Based on Mantic Games’ Hellboy: The Board Game

Legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, Dark Horse Direct and Mantic Games have announced the first Hellboy Statue based on Mantic Games’ bestselling Hellboy: The Board Game miniature. Limited to 500 and available now for pre-order, the Hellboy Statue—Mantic Series is expected to ship this summer.

This exclusive statue was meticulously sculpted by the creative team at Mantic Games and painted by Ed Bradley as if you lifted our hero right out of the pages of the acclaimed graphic novels and comics. Posed to pack quite a punch, Hellboy stands approximately 9” tall on a hellscape terrain base approximately 7.5” wide. Level 52 Studios did the statue prototype and base sculpt for The Hellboy Statue—Mantic Series.

On sale now, Hellboy: The Board Game is a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members – Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and Johann Kraus – before exploring gothic locations, uncovering ancient artifacts and battling one of Hellboy’s most notorious foes, Rasputin!

Mantic Games is heading to Gen Con and you can find them at booth #835 with demos and exclusives!

Hellboy: The Wild Hunt

Mantic will have the very first copies of the brand-new expansion, The Wild Hunt – flown straight in from China. This will be the first time the expansion has been available anywhere in the world – but there’s only 50 copies, so you might need to be quick to get yours! And don’t worry if you’re not at the show, the expansion will be available from retailers and the Mantic website in September.

If you missed out on the Kickstarter, they’ll have the last few Hellboy Kickstarters copies available in the USA at our booth 835. There are less than 100 Kickstarter Editions – and they are on a first come, first served basis (plus use the voucher from the coupon book to get $20 off).

Hellboy Show Exclusive Nimue, the Blood Queen

You want more Hellboy madness? Mantic will have the new Hellboy Show Exclusive Nimue, the Blood Queen miniature available in very limited amounts at the stand. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Gen Con, Nimue will be available at other shows we attend and from the Mantic website soon!


Call to Arms will be making its debut at Gen Con. On the stand the new book will be available, along with the faction cards and equipment deck. If you want to take your games of All Out War to the next level, then this is a vital purchase.

For Walking Dead fans, Gen Con will be the first opportunity in the US to grab the Show Exclusive Chris, Leader of the Hunters. Not only do you get Chris, but he also comes with two gruesome resin objective markers.

Also at Gencon Mantic will host the legendary Mantic Night. The ticket costs $30 but for that you get the 10 Year Mantic Gencon Celebration pint pot, a pint of craft beer to put in it (or other tasty beverage of your choice) and a $30 voucher to spend on the Mantic stand. So basically, Mantic’s paying you to come and spend the evening with them! How amazing is that? The event takes place Saturday at 8pm at the Kingmakers Board Game Parlour, where you can chat, drink and game!

Ho! Ho! Ho! Mantic Games Delivers a Holiday Hellboy

Mantic Games has announced a special, limited edition miniature to accompany its upcoming Hellboy: The Board Game. Working once again with Dark Horse Comics and creator Mike Mignola, Holiday Hellboy is a handmade, high quality resin gaming piece based around an iconic piece of festive artwork drawn by Mike Mignola.

This amazing celebratory piece will only be available to order now until the end of December from participating Mantic stockists and direct from Mantic Games. After being designed by a digital sculptor, each Holiday Hellboy will be painstakingly handcrafted by the resin team at Mantic HQ in Nottingham, UK.

Measuring approximately 7cm tall, Holiday Hellboy comes unpainted and requires assembly, but will most definitely make a fantastic festive-themed gift for any Hellboy fan. The set also comes with an exclusive B.P.R.D. Agent card for use in Hellboy: The Board Game.

Due for release in 2019, Hellboy: The Board Game is a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous 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 artifacts and battling one of Hellboy’s most notorious foes, Rasputin!
