|Description:||KoW is a new concept for mass battle miniature wargaming – a game that is easy to learn and fast to play, yet will take time and experience to master. With few and simple rules, there is little to get in the way of the fun and slaughter. KoW is a challenging game of strategy, where you can pit your wits against your opponent without devoting half of your brainpower to remember a plethora of convoluted rules.|
And that’s not all, the innovative turn structure allows you to play KoW using a time-keeping tool (like a stopwatch or a chess clock) to time your moves. As the seconds tick away, the pressure and excitement this adds makes KoW unlike any other large-scale wargame you’ve ever played before.

Events Week: Spring Open Day
As with the Autumn Open Day in November 2017, we are continually evolving the format. As part of Events Week we’re having a preview of the Spring Open Day – single tickets and group-of-4 tickets are on sale now. This is not a render – it’s resin! Spring Open Day There were three drafts of this text. I was going to lead you into this gently, then it struck me: come out swinging! After discussion here at the Mantic Bunker we unanimously decided that we want to lead with a big hitter for our Open Days. We would resurrect the 3-Ups which our long-term friends will remember fondly – and add some verve! So we commissioned a 3-Up print of the rather epic Sgt. Howlett model from our Warpath Universe and, what they heck, we’ll be placing this gently into your goodie bag for attending! Yes, that’s right: your attendance secures you a 3-Up as a thank-you from us for joining us on the day. (Your ticket allows you entry – your presence grants you the model.) But there’s more… If you prefer fantasy over hard sci-fi then truly we are resurrecting this second 3-Up from the grave for you! [...]

Warpath – The Basics – Units and Movement
As armies clash, the fate of a world hangs in the balance. Warpath: Firefight gives you a great set of rules to fight in sci-fi battles across the tabletop, using our spectacular range of miniatures. In the next few articles, we’re going to go over the basics of playing the game to provide an overview of the rules so you can get a good idea of them before playing. We’ll take you through the various aspcts of playing the game, before going over advance rules and building your armies. If you want to learn more, you can pick up the Firefight rulebook here, or download starter rules for Firefight from our Website! Units and Activation This unit of Thorgarim is led by a veteran, standing at the front. From Enforcers to Veer-Myn, every miniature in Warpath: Firefight is part of a unit. Units are split into two categories – infantry and vehicles. Most units will have multiple models –usually five to ten – and will fight together on the battlefield. A few, such as vehicles and commanders are single model units. Every unit in Firefight must have a leader at all times – so if your unit leader dies, you [...]

Ronnie Looks Ahead at Events in 2018
It’s that exciting time of the year when event season begins in earnest, and we get out and about right up until Mantic Open Day in November brings another year to a gradual end! And what a year we have planned. We are attending more shows, hosting more gaming weekends and supporting more tournaments than ever before – all told we’ll be at nearly double the events from previous years – so hopefully there will be something close by that you’ll want to get along to! This year the team is bigger than ever – with Andy Meechan heading up the UK and European shows – and the head office tours and gaming weekends! Pat Lewis will be getting us to Adepticon, Gencon and our big US secret, and all the shows will be supported by Martin Thirlwell, Rob Burman, Dave Symonds, our fantastic Pathfinders… and occasionally me! This weekend sees Mantic at Adepticon once again. There are big Kings of War events, and both Warpath and Deadzone have a very exciting tournament scene planned. We will also have our big 20×20 booth, with the first chance to get your 2018 shows exclusives – including a new Walking Dead booster [...]

What’s Changed in DreadBall Second Edition?
Hello sports fans! We’re fast approaching the launch of the galaxy’s best sports game: DreadBall Second Edition! The stadium is ready, all the blood stains have been wiped off the neodurium pitch and the cheerleaders are doing their warm ups. In preparation we wanted to look at what’s changed in the rules between first edition and second edition. Spoilers: it’s quite a lot. Below you’ll find an overview about what’s changed in the new version. The idea behind the changes was simple: we wanted to rebalance all the existing teams while also tightening up the rules to make it more fast, fun and furious (not necessarily in that order). Below you’ll see a quick run down of the major changes that’ll make second edition better than ever! REBALANCING THE TEAMS We’ve said before that after its original release in 2012, DreadBall expanded too fast and too aggressively. This meant that the original team count quickly expanded to a massive 24. With that came a lot of unbalancing because those teams released as part of season six tended to have better abilities and stats than those released in season one. With Second Edition we’ve reviewed all the teams and adjusted them [...]

Ronnie’s 10 Reasons DreadBall 2nd Edition is Awesome!
It’s back, it’s action packed and it’s bigger and bolder than ever… DreadBall Second Edition is coming to a Neoduirum pitch near you – and boy is the new season shaping up to be something really special. Dreadball was always one of our easiest games to pick up – yet different every time you played – and that’s what made the first edition Mantic’s first ever global hit. And when it hits the shelves again not only does it have all the magic from the first edition, but so much more besides. Tune into DreadBall week all this week to find the inside stories, tactics and updates that’ll make this the most exciting sports game you’ve ever played! Here are my top 10 reasons to get excited about DreadBall Second Edition: NEW TEAMS DreadBall Second Edition, of course has some new teams (four to be exact) but the rules committee, and their playtesting buddies, have also gone back to every team ever released to tinker with their stats. This led to the creation of the Agility attribute, along with cleaning up some of those team special rules. NEW RULES The rules themselves have also been given a makeover – and [...]
