The Elf Fleet has Set Sail for Mantic Games’ Armada

Fish Kill side ad

The last Armada fleet has arrived in stores! The elves are one of the greatest seafaring races of Pannithor. Their sleek ships cut through the waves and their bolt throwers cut through enemy sails.

You can order your forces now!

ELF STARTER FLEET

It is said that the elves first learned their modern ship-building techniques from the Celestians, but had explored much of the known world before the other races had dared leave the safety of their coastal waters. Elf warships are equipped primarily with bristling ranks of bolt-throwers, whose enchanted ammunition can pierce the hulls of even a dwarf ironclad. Out of necessity, however, the larger vessels also carry some cannon upon their lower gundecks.

ELF STARTER FLEET

ELF BOOSTER FLEET

Over the millennia, elven ships have changed very little in their design and construction – a testament to the incredible seafaring knowledge possessed by the forebears of the Sea Kindreds. In the groves behind Therennia Adar, warship parts are painstakingly crafted beneath impossibly high forest canopies.

ELF BOOSTER FLEET

VALANDOR XL SHIP

Developed from the Stormcaller trimarans with which the elves first conquered half the world’s oceans, Valandors are triple-hulled, lateen-sailed warships, whose size belies their staggering speed and manoeuvrability.

ELF FLIERS

The importance of air support has been at the forefront of naval warfare since the earliest days, when the elves first encountered hostile fleets upon the oceans. It was in battle with their age-old rivals the dwarfs that the elves, led by Aethmar, the Prince of Fathoms, first unleashed a flight of drakon riders upon the unsuspecting foe. The elves still continue their ages-long tradition of riding to war on fierce drakons, the smaller cousins of the majestic dragons.

New Halfings are Coming for Kings of War in November

AERONAUTS

The graceful Aeronauts are a sight to behold, flying in their hot air balloons. Staying high overhead and dropping bombs onto the hapless enemies below, their mere presence in the sky can be as much of a psychological threat as a physical one.

AERONAUTS

FOREST TROLL GUNNERS

Cunning halflings soon realised that there’s a good degree of safety to be had by riding on the back of a hungry killing machine where the enemy can’t reach you, but you can point a very large gun at them if they get too close.

Halfling General on Winged Aralez

Like all armies, the halflings have some commanders, champions and individuals that play unique and crucial roles in keeping the army organised, outwitting the enemy, or just throwing in a lethal surprise.

There are also two new battegroups to purchase – stalwarts and poachers.

Hellboy: The Board Game from Mantic Returns to Kickstarter

Fish Kill side ad

Mantic Games, Dark Horse Comics, and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola to bring Hellboy: The Board Game back to Kickstarter. 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.

Hellboy: The Dice Game

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 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.

The Kickstarter has kept it simple with backers able to get everything for about $110. There’s also a pledge level for retailers as well. The game has already blown through its goal and unlocked numerous stretch goals with more to come!

Mantic Unveils XL Ships for Armada

Fish Kill side ad

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

Fish Kill side ad

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

Dwarf Booster Fleet

Also revealed are MDF ship card trays to keep things organized. You can buy them in packs of four or individually.
