Hellboy Boardgame kickstarter by Mantic

Recommended Posts

Interested, but I have given a lot of money to Mantic, and never played any of those games, and their minis are fairly evil.  Mold lines that are like permanent.  They changed formula, and the newer ones seems better, but they are rough.  I will have to be sold by the gameplay.

The only other Mantic project I backed was TerrainCrate, which hasn't shipped yet so I have no idea how customer service is keeping up these days

 

I'm hopeful they're going to deliver on time, they've asked for updated addresses and have pre-orders available on their site for the terrain but I wish they provided more (or any) actual updates on their progress.

One thing Mantic is bad at is downtime. During the project they are pretty responsive, and right around shipping they are fairly decent at handling issues, but there's a whole lot of nothing going on in the downtime. 
That said, all three of their projects I've backed I've been happy with, even if they changed some things without telling us. I wouldn't go all in on a Mantic project ever though. They do seem to drop freebies occasionally (things that they decided didn't work), or change them drastically (much more so then other companies). 

Their quality is all over the place. Early on, the focus was massive amounts of minis for cheap, and that was okay. The quality was decent but not great, and they kept the price points low. As they have grown, the focus has shifted to quality, and their big lines tend to get better in the long run (KoW, in particular has seen a tremendous shift towards quality). They seem to use their smaller games as a way to experiment with new plastic variations though, so, I would be wary of setting the expectations to high on the quality side. I've heard good things about the Walking Dead stuff, but to my eye the quality is very middle of the road, and the terrain is very light looking on details.

From Mantic:

"Today's Hellboy unveil is the  monster seen in Seed of Destruction. Measuring approx 84mm and on a 50mm base, this will be one of several boss encounters in game."

Well now....  I think it's safe to say my interest is piqued, as is my curiosity... 

 

Aka those are some epic looking tentacles..

This is going to be hard to hold out on!

 

If they do the Angel of Death from the movies I don't think my will is strong enough!

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I'm new here, been an off and on lurker over the years, and wanted to share some pictures most recently finished models.
       
      Before I began, I was looking for ideas on how to decorate the models and a lot of the pictures that I found of these models I didn't think did them justice. So I looked at other treemen models. What I liked the most was using foliage and turf material to create "real" foliage instead of going with just painted metal.
       
      I really enjoyed working on the models, it was a lot of firsts for me. The biggest one being water, I have seen a lot of videos about making water scenes and what not. Seeing the model with cattails on it I had to have it coming out of the water. I tried going for a wet dripping algae look. For a first attempt I think it did turned out pretty good. As far as the models go, I wasn't really thrilled with the appearance of the metal vines. So I created my own vines as well, which is another first. Quite fun but tedious and pleased with the look. Cattails were made from parts of floral wheat and tacky glue. Adding foliage to miniatures in general is a first for me as well, all the foliage was self made with colored sawdust and furniture foam. The only thing not made was static grass.
       
      The water is Woodland Scenics Realistic Water and their Water Effects. I liked how easy it was and relatively mess free compared to the typical 2 part epoxy that I've seen.
       
      After doing these minis I thought of something I am going to attempt on my other 6. I'm going to ditch the metal arms entirely and use floral wire as a support so I can then pose the vines however I want.
       
      Lastly, these are going to be a part of my Elven Army and perhaps a start of a Forces of Nature Army for Kings Of War. So these aren't my first models. Just the ones I'm most satisfied with. If you have any suggestions, critiques, or questions let me know.

      Main Game ($80)

       
      Expansion Box ($40, so $120 total)

       
      We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Singapore (Singaporean backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
      USA: $10-$20 to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.  CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.  LATIN AMERICA: $70-$80 to most countries.  ASIA: $10 to China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. $35 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia). OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.  AFRICA: $95 to most countries.  EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.   • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.   • $50 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.   • $70-$80 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.  • $90 to Belarus. Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.
      *WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.
      Basically a Tweaked version of Arcadia Quest designed to run faster and be easier to set up, with Sci-Fi-ification

      About
      The Edge: Dawnfall is new miniature Board Game by Awaken Realms for 1-4 players. It was created by Michał Oracz (man behind 13 years of Neuroshima Hex and recent hit Cry Havoc) and it brings next level of competitive gameplay to the table. Fresh, exciting, pure and rewarding.
      It’s a living organism with a very passionate community. It’s thousands of hours of development, hundreds of unique art pieces, over hundreds of pages of rich and unique campaigns, 7 extremely asymmetric and unique factions and finally and most importantly a fast, dynamic and very exciting skirmish game with tons of cinematic skills and turn the tide moments.
      This is a second Edge the Boadgame Kicstarter, a reprint of our naive 2016 kickstarter promise of an unreasonably high amount of content that not only we still managed to reach, but even overdeliver. It’s our biggest and most ambitious project yet, it’s our favorite child, our blood tears and sweat. It’s a Beast!

      Remember this thread?
       
      You know, the Yedharo/GT project that was cancelled and they said they'd reluanch it?
       
      Well they relaunched it.
       
      There's a lot less units this time and far more characters (some of whom appear to have been inspired by the Atlantis Dwarfs or are attempting to copy their success but with a Yedharo/GT spin on it).
       
      I might jump in for a small handful of character models but I won't go in big on this one. Then again why would dwarfs go big? They're small. It's one of their defining features :).
       
      'cause Atlantis did dwarven women with shaved sides and some goat riders......
       

       
      He's baaaaack!
       

       
      She got off the goat
       

       
      Hammer Man is back again
       

       
      Apparently she's really "Busty"
       

       
      At least the leaping Trollslayer is back again :)
       

       
      Mr Ugly Sword is back again (don't know why).
       

       
      I like this new hammer man
       

       
      The ugly rectangular shield unit with hammers is back (the only returning unit).
      They really should've fixed those shields and the "3rd edition/Dragonpunk helmets".
       

       
      The Bloodbowl team is back as well (obviously).
