Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King’s Quest is back in stock on the Mantic Website and through your local retailers. This exciting dungeon crawler follows four heroes as they battle legions of the Undead to thwart the evil Necromancer, Mortibris.

Featuring detailed pre-assembled plastic miniatures and scenery, thrilling adventures and fun, easy to play rules, Dungeon Saga is the game you’ve been waiting for. If you want to see the game in action, check out the fantastic video below from the guys at Watch it Played.

Watch it Played takes you through the game of swords and sorcery…
If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a fantastic new expansion out this month. The Eye of the Abyss is set around the Kings of War Summer Campaign, and adds 5 new heroes and 13 new adventures, including 2 new narrative campaigns. There’s also a dedicated FAQ for the Dungeon Saga Core game and 5 single-piece resin miniatures to represent your new heroes.

You can find out more about The Eye of the Abyss on the Mantic Blog, or pre-order your copy here!

If you want to get started right away, we’ve put together a handy bundle of everything you need to play through both of the new campaigns on the webstore, which also comes with a saving of around 10% versus purchasing separately.
This weekend, we’ll be attending the Derby Worlds convention in Lutterworth. We’ll have the usual Mantic Stand, including show exclusives (such as Lee & Clementine), game demos and cheerful Mantic Staff to chat to. Come by and see us!
Coming soon…
Finally, we let Ronnie loose on the blog in the wake of the Summer Campaign. He takes on the growth of Kings of War and what the future holds, including the new game, Kings of War Vanguard! Read more here!

Mantic Games weekly newsletter with a Kings of War focus this time…

This week two new Kings of War monsters go on Pre-order – the indomitable Dwarf Steel Behemoth and the horrific Undead Revenant King on Undead Wyrm. We thought we’d take a look through the other large beasts in Kings of War with two Guides on the Mantic Blog!

Finally, the Mantic Open Day Tickets are now available for November, with a packed day of gaming goodness planned for all!

Steel Behemoth

These innovative fighting vehicles are powered by ingenious internal combustion engines fuelled by the black blood of the earth. Protected by thick metal plates and equipped with flame-spitting weaponry, they are a nightmare made manifest for the Dwarfs’ enemies.
This mighty Dwarven ‘Monster’ will be stomping onto tabletops soon. Cast as a multi-part, highly detailed resin kit, this vehicle fills up a 100mmx50mm base and comes with three crew to man the ‘howdah’ on its back and control the Behemoth.

Revenant King on Undead Wyrm

Wyrms are distant relations of the great drakes that inhabit the mountains of Mantica. Ferocious and tough, they adapt quickly to suit their environment, giving rise to the sea-wyrms of the Naiads, or the sand-wyrms found in the deserts of the south. Ancient human kings favoured these creatures as mighty steeds and were often buried with them, only to be resurrected to fight once again.
Nothing says being in charge like riding a massive undead predator and this Revenant King is covered in that sense. This detailed miniature is huge, mounted on a 75mm square base, and is covered in decaying flesh, exposed bones and organs and diamond-hard scales. If that wasn’t enough, you can also pick up a set of equally decayed wings, so that your Wyrm can take to the sky in games of Kings of War!

Monstrous Deals

Inspired by the new monster kits, we’ve put together a group of bundle deals, perfect for getting started with Kings of War for the first time, or picking up a new army. The concept is simple, you get either an Army or Mega Army, a cool Monster and a FREE Kings of War Game’s Edition Rulebook – all in one easy package.
You can choose from either Dwarfs (Steel Behemoth), Elves (Tree Herder), Abyssal Dwarfs (Greater Obsidian Golem), Forces of the Abyss (Archfiend) and Undead (Revenant King on Undead Wyrm). In each case, you save a small amount on purchasing this separately.

These deals are only available until the 20th October, so order yours now to avoid disappointment!

Check them out here!

Monster Wrangling

If you’re not sure how to use you new monsters in games of King of War, then worry not. We’ve covered the basics and some specific tactics over on the Mantic Blog.
Part One of our Monster guide covers how Monsters work in general, their strengths and weaknesses and what they can bring to your game.
Part Two gives you specific uses for each of the monsters featured in the deals above, based on their stats and abilities in the game.
The Mantic Open Day is back! On the 25th November, we will be opening our doors to the public once more, for the most packed open day yet. There will be 8 hours of seminars, participation games, exclusive miniatures, a goody bag, and so much more to see and do! You can see more of what’s happening on the ticket page and book your tickets today!

A new Deadzone faction from Mantic Games…

The Galactic Co-Prosperity Sphere’s expansion has been swift and reckless, and has now reached the perilous Death Arc. When the Plague bursts upon the colonies, GCPS Marines have to fight for their survival in an uncaring, dangerous galaxy.
The GCPS are almost here and to celebrate we’re giving newsletters subscribers the GCPS Deadzone rules before anyone else! You can now download this eight-page booklet, which contains all the stats and units needed to field the GCPS in your games of Deadzone!
The stats have been put together by the Deadzone Rules Committee and they’ve created a force that excels in firepower and the ability to overwhelm the enemy with relatively inexpensive units.
Along with the units, there’s also a handy weapons guide, so you know what to field in your force. That Thermal Rifle certainly looks rather tasty.
If the free rules have whetted your appetite, then make sure you pre-order the GCPS Faction Starter, which includes 24 miniatures. The Faction Starter will start shipping from September 22nd.
Pre-order NOW!
Need to bolster your forces? The GCPS Faction Starter comes with a mighty Strider and extra specialists to kit out your squard.
Pre-order NOW!

ASTERIAN ARMY LIST

Along with the GCPS, we’ve also released a brand new booklet for the Asterians. This includes new units, like the Black Talon Prime and Support Drones.
Just like the GCPS booklet, you’ll also find a handy guide to the various weapons used by the mysterious and aloof Asterians.
Along with the new Asterian booklet, there’s also a revised Faction Starter for these ancient aliens. And now you’ve got the rules to use the hard plastic drones!
Pre-order NOW!
Next up there’s a new Asterian Faction Booster, which includes the deadly Pulse Bombard! Blast your foes from afar with this Indirect beast!
Pre-order NOW!

COMING SOON…

Some Kings of War news from Mantic Games…

THE ABYSS THREATENS US ALL…

For the first time since its creation, the Abyss grows wider. It seeks to devour the world and curse all with its corruption. The forces of Good rally under the Green Lady’s banner. Even the Ogres and Varangur haven taken up arms to protect the world. Meanwhile, the forces of Evil muster in the dark halls, the Abyssal Dwarfs strike at their southern kin, Abyssals and Orcs wage destructive wars, and a darker, unspoken evil bears down on the minds of the Elves, trying to find a way into the world. Mantica itself trembles as war begins. You must answer the call. Will you defend its people or revel in its destruction?

YOU CAN DECIDE THE FATE OF MANTICA!

This is your chance to change Mantica forever. Your battles will shape the map and, depending upon what happens, entire areas of the Mantica map could potentially be wiped out. Will the Abyss swallow the world or will you help stop its sickening spread? Gather up your army and prepare for battle!

Some upcoming Deadzone releases from Mantic Games..

GCPS marine forces are rarely deployed to Deadzones, mostly because no corporation would risk the Council’s ire trying to circumvent a Containment Protocol. In exchange for safeguarding frontier commerce that a Plague incursion, Veer-Myn infestation, or open rebellion would jeopardise, CEOs prefer to let the Enforcer Corps conduct their gruesome work and simply write off any local assets from their ledgers, an exercise in sunk costs versus future investment opportunities elsewhere.

FACTION STARTER

The Deadzone GCPS Faction Starter contains everything you need to field Corporation troops, including a FREE rules booklet with full stats for the GCPS, weapons guide and special rules. Join the Corporation now and protect the galaxy.

FACTION BOOSTER

Need some extra support for your troopers? The Faction Booster includes GCPS specialists and a mighty Strider to offer some much-needed cover in the heat of battle. Call in refinforcements…

GCPS STRIKE FORCE

Grab the GCPS Faction Starter and Faction Booster with just one click and for a special price! This deal is available for a limited time only!
What agenda these haughty aliens follow when they enter a Deadzone is not clear. All that is known for certain is that their operatives are efficient and deadly, and leave no trace of their operations behind.

FACTION STARTER

There’s also a new Faction Starter for the Asterians, featuring the mechanical Marionettes and Drones – which now have their own rules for use in Deadzone, thanks to a FREE rules booklet inside the revised Faction Starter. Bring balance to the galaxy with an Asterian force.

FACTION BOOSTER

Along with a new Asterian Faction Starter, there’s also an improved Faction Booster, which includes the powerful Pulse Bombard… destroy your foes from a safe distance with this indirect firepower! PEW… PEW… BOOM!

RESIN KALYSHI

For the first time, these close combat specialists are available in resin! The Kalyshi go to war in traditional warpaint, armed with bows and glaives, but only a fool would mistake them for simple savages.

ASTERIAN STRIKE FORCE

For a limited time only, we’ve got a special Asterian Faction Starter and Faction Booster bundle available on the website. Order now!

Crawling from the deepest recesses beneath a world’s feet, the Veer-Myn are man’s oldest nightmares made flesh, emerging to wreak havoc and kill all who threaten them and their way of life.

VEER-MYN RUMBLER

For the first time, you can now purchase the Veer-myn Rumbler on its own! As well as being deadly in Deadzone, it’s also extremely useful for taking out flyers in Warpath and Firefight. Strike fear into your enemies.

VEER-MYN CREEPERS

Carrying cutting gear, packages of infectious materials, and unstable explosives, Creepers can immobilise vehicles, disrupt communications gear and spread disease amongst enemy personnel. Jeepers Creepers!

Along with a new Asterian Faction Starter, there’s also an improved Faction Booster, which includes the powerful Pulse Bombard… destroy your foes from a safe distance with this indirect firepower! PEW… PEW… BOOM!

RESIN KALYSHI

For the first time, these close combat specialists are available in resin! The Kalyshi go to war in traditional warpaint, armed with bows and glaives, but only a fool would mistake them for simple savages.

ASTERIAN STRIKE FORCE

For a limited time only, we’ve got a special Asterian Faction Starter and Faction Booster bundle available on the website. Order now!

Crawling from the deepest recesses beneath a world’s feet, the Veer-Myn are man’s oldest nightmares made flesh, emerging to wreak havoc and kill all who threaten them and their way of life.

VEER-MYN RUMBLER

For the first time, you can now purchase the Veer-myn Rumbler on its own! As well as being deadly in Deadzone, it’s also extremely useful for taking out flyers in Warpath and Firefight. Strike fear into your enemies.

VEER-MYN CREEPERS

Carrying cutting gear, packages of infectious materials, and unstable explosives, Creepers can immobilise vehicles, disrupt communications gear and spread disease amongst enemy personnel. Jeepers Creepers!

The latest weekly newsletter from Mantic Games…

Welcome to this week’s Mantic Games newsletter. Here you’ll find all the latest information on new releases, news and special offers!
This is your last chance to participate in Crazy Bobby’s Book Bonanaza! This insane sale ends Monday, August 7th, so if you want to pick up any of these great deals, act now. With the Kings of War summer campaign, grab a copy of the Hardback Rulebook at half price and get into the Lore of Mantica. For DreadBall, the next edition is just around the corner so these drop dead prices will offer a great chance to pick up some practice games before it arrives. Finally, with Warpath and Deadzone purchase everything from the main rulebooks to the novels, all at best prices ever!
So act now, the sale is running out and you won’t want to miss this. Use the offer code CRAZY50 before August 7th.
This month sees the first armoured vehicles deployed to the Warpath universe. While the Enforcers are reinforced by the Interceptor and Persecutor, it is the Forge Father Star Realm that wields Mantic’s very first Tanks!
You can pick up the Sturnhammer (with parts to build both turrets, the Brandr and the Drakkar) here. Because we know that you’ll likely want to field a lot of Drakkar APCs(perhaps an entirely mechanised force?) we’ve also made it available separately without the Sturnhammer and Brandr turrets for a lower price. So what are you waiting for? Deploy your tanks and prepare to overwhelm your foes with their combined firepower! These high quality models are up for pre-order now, seeing release on August 18th!
The Abyss expands threatening all of Mantica! The Green Lady marshals the forces of good to turn back the tide. All the world is gathering for this climactic struggle. Shining Ones watch from the edges of their seats in anticipation!
This summer campaign will see the face of Mantica change dramatically based on your actions. Fight through 7 new scenarios with special rules to alter normal play. Purchase formations, new rules that grant special abilities to the units within them. All of Mantica is waiting for you.

Get a book and get ready. The battle begins August 21st.

This week for Tactics Tuesday, Dan King, Kings of War Rules Committee member and tournament legend, gives some advice on how to play the game competitively. You can read the full article here!
Our own Martin Thirlwell, a man who spends a lot of time on a single model, has written a blog on Zenithal highlighting, a special way of preshading a model, shown through painting the new Kings of War Hero, Eckter.
Until now, Mantic Games’ painting competition has been limited to our tournaments and the Open Day painting competitions. We are pleased to announce that the scope is widening to include an ongoing series, online. There will be a series of these competitions running from September to December with the winners earning a fabulous prize and featuring on our website. The Kings of War Monster competition starts us off with a deadline of September 4th.
