Hellboy Boardgame kickstarter by Mantic

Recommended Posts

I'm liking a lot of the character miniatures so far from this, but my exposure to Hellboy has been the 2 films (which 2nd was lame). Not sure I'm going to know what I'm looking at to draw me in.

Dakka has reposts of the development blogs. https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/90/747976.page

 

James Hewlett, the HB game designer, has a fair amount of game design experience, and is posting on the Hellboy forum on BGG : https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgamedesigner/96901/james-m-hewitt

Its gonna be between this and Limbo: Eternal War for me. 

 

I'll probably drop a dollar on it and wait to see how much the other game costs. 

 

I think the renders right now favor Limbo but my heart favors Hellboy.

24-hour EB. If you pledged a minute too early, you might not have seen them!

Does anyone have experience with Mantic shipping to Canada?  I'm concerned about this statement near the bottom of the page:

 

"See below regarding import duties and taxes."

 

There is nothing about import duties and taxes below that, that I can see.  Just shipping costs.

Yes I do.

If they ship by Royal Mail which then is delivered through Canada Post then you may or may not be charged taxes and duties upon delivery.

 

Its really a coin toss with Canada post on whether they will charge you for those. The bigger the dollar value the more likely it is you will be. 

 

If they ship it through Purolator, FedEx, or UPS, then those companies will charge you for the duties and taxes plus an additional service/handling/processing fee.

 

Mantic has mentioned that they have tried to find a way to make this kickstarter Canada friendly, which means finding a shipping partner within Canada, but were unable to do so before the kickstarters launch.

They will update if/when that changes.

And backed.

 

Wasn't even on my radar, but having a look at it and I'm, shockingly, interested in it as an actual board game.

Only a few hours left for the Early Bird pledge level! 

 

I sprung for it because both MrBoot and I are big Hellboy fans, and after reading through the gameplay it sounds like fun. From the description it sounds a lot like Arkham Horror, which is one of the few board games I can get him to play. ^_^

 

Huzzah!       

--OneBoot :D

Thanks for this.  This has also been my experience with Royal mail and Canada Post.  They've never dinged me for taxes /duties. 

 

But once a Kickstarter from the UK used DHL ... that gave me a sharp kick in the D20s when I had to pay their handling fees.

Game looks great but I am after miniatures and these just aren't standing out to me enough to get me to bite.  I'll keep an eye on it to see what SG get unlocked but as of now its a no for me.

      I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks

      A really quick and dirty set of scenery using mantics library mini crate.  All told I have maybe 2 hours into the set.  I think it came out pretty well.  I wanted to see what these looked like and the could double for additional scenery on my Saga game.
       
      Air brushes brown primer, followed by a drybrush of woodland brown and then a bunch of colors for the actual books 
       
      Hope you like what you see...

      Terror Below is a game of government experiments gone wild in the Nevada desert.
       
      The game has a retro look and is very reminiscent of the movie Tremors.

      Next up on my table are the miniatures from Cerebria: The Inside World, a boardgame from Mindclash Games in which the forces of Bliss and Gloom vie for control of an evolving personality.
       
      I'm going to try to do these two at a time (one from each team); the first two will be Harmony and Malice.

      Session 1 - prime + zenithal highlight
       
      Harmony

       
      Malice

       
      Session 2
       
      Harmony
      With the airbrush, I did base+shading of the wings and base of the body. Colors used:
      - Twilight Blue
      - Snow Shadow
      - Surf Aqua
      - Violet Light
      - Sunset Purple
      - Maggot White

       
      Malice
      For malice, I'm starting with the NMM-bronze-ish body. I base coated with Khaki Shadow, then used Ghoul Skin and Moldy Skin for initial highlighting. Shadows are Woodstain Brown and NMM Gold Shadow (which I am not that fond of for Gold, but seems to work well here). Any other color recommendations? I finished up the session with basing the skirt in Redstone.
