I've been a Mantic fanboy since their very beginning so I've had teasers of their upcoming terrain project coming across my Facebook feed for the past few weeks.

Are you sure it's going to be a Kickstarter though? 

For the past few months Mantic has been saying their long term plan is to rely less and less on Kickstarters and try to promote the retailers more.

 

Whatever it turns out to be I'm looking forward to it. This looks to be the sort of terrain and dungeon dressing I've been wanting to see more of from Reaper, but the more variety available the better.

 

And I have to say the quality of terrain pieces from Mantic has steadily been improving with each release. 

I thought the Mars Attacks terrain was pretty good but their Dungeon Saga Furniture Pack and even more recently their Walking Dead terrain plastics keep getting better and continue to impress in both the sculpting and quality of the plastics.

I keep seeing that it will be a KS, but not from an official source. I saw one guy say their Instagram guy spilled the beans, but I went to their Instagram and found nothing. I get the feeling with the word 'crate' that it will be a subscription service.

I have not had many dealings with Mantic (one Crazy Box with totally disappointing Content - the Basileans for example) and the Dungeon Saga Kickstarter. But those experiences convinced me not to back any other Mantic Kickstarter ever again ...

Dungeon Saga is a weak game. KoW is great, and the KoW kickstarter went off relatively well (for me), though experiences seemed to differ widely from person to person. The thing they are best at is allowing the Rules Committees to take over their established games and make them work better. KoW 2 is a great example of that.

Their minis are just okay in my book.

Yeah there was a lot of weird stuff with DS. The game itself was fine, but the AC was terrible, and the 2nd printing was just as bad IMO. I think they really wanted to put together a replacement for WHQ but Jake didn't want to have anything to do with it so he rushed out just enough to fulfill his contractual obligations.

By all indications this is not a Kickstarter, but a subscription service.

      Description
       
      Enter the Dark Ages of Greece, ruled by mighty Gods wielding advanced technology. Control asymmetric heroes and choose your path to victory, either by strategic control or adventure style monster hunting and quests.
      Build majestic multi-part monuments of Gods on the board and unlock their mighty powers that will help you win and survive the raids of monsters, who travel through land and rain havoc.
      In Lords of Hellas, you control an asymmetric hero, developed by increasing his 3 basic statistics and gathering artifacts. The main statistics are:
      Leadership that will help you to move your armies
      Strength that will empower you to successfully hunt for monsters
      Speed that will make your hero move faster
      Through the game you can choose from various actions and influence the game thanks to the mighty monuments of base Gods: Zeus, Athena, and Hermes. You need to strategically move your armies and hero as well as manage your actions in order to win. There are also random events, where players need to vote or take action together.
      Players can win in various ways: by controlling area, temples, or slaying monsters that are wandering through the map and interfere in various ways. Once any victory condition is met, the game ends (there is no point system).

      This is a pre-launch thread, but should be launching on Kickstarter in April.
       
       
      Darkholds is a dungeon crawler boardgame - think Space Hulk crossed with Zombicide - containing lots of undead (including Wihtgar, Wihtboga, Wihtax, Gasts, Dreaguth and Tomb Spider) and six heroes, all in plastic. It's heroes versus the game.
      The heroes are Carrowek, Penda, Nerys, Gnith and Sáthach, plus a special KS only miniature that you can ONLY get if you purchase the boardgame, Morag of Mann. You can't get her separately and she will only be available during the Kickstarter. The retail version won't include her.
       

      I don't know why it keeps merging into a single post.  But hopefully it stays.

      Conan: Rise of Monsters Update
      For the last year, Conan: Rise of Monsters has undergone thorough playtesting and development. The team has reworked and improved miniatures, added and adjusted rules, and – most excitingly – worked with Reaper to develop gorgeous new terrain pieces that all make Conan’s heroic battles come alive!

      At ReaperCon 2016, numerous fans had an opportunity to try out the game, and soon it will be your turn.


      In the coming weeks, we will be releasing a Quick-Start version of the rules that you can use to play CROM right away. We’ll invite your feedback and questions to help us make the game the best it can be.

      Then, in February, Conan: Rise of Monsters will launch its new Kickstarter campaign, complete with updated miniatures and rules, and of course the new terrain pieces. We’re preparing a long list of add-ons and stretch goals to make this an exciting and rewarding campaign!
