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..

      Here is the last one form the set.
      The Dancer of the Boreal Valley he's called.
      I don't think I wanna dance with him.

      Sod all to do with gaming, but I know we've got cat people with their own voids at home; and some of you might be into pins and need a Void of Blep of your own.
      Or.. heck, I'unno. Maybe you need void stickers or something.
