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.

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!

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.

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.
