Hellboy Boardgame kickstarter by Mantic

Recommended Posts

My main box arrived

 

well I picked it up after a suspicious 'we tried to deliver it but you were out' card showed up on the doormat, I suppose I might have been out back and missed the knock but I suspect it was a drop & dash of the card only.

 

more amusingly the post office also clearly had another couple of Hellboy boxes waiting to be picked up by other people as the mantic tape was clearly visible so there must be more backers nearby

 

The main box is all good, but the furniture has suffered from being stuffed into plastic bags that were basically too small for them so i'll have to see what can be salvaged by hot water treatment but a lot of it looks very white and strained on the bends otherwise i'll need to contact mantic about them

Contacted Mantic, waiting on a reply.

Good grief. It's not Dungeon Saga all over again, is it??

 

Mantic said they were supposed to fix shipping problems from back then. 

 

fwiw, Mantic's Terrain Crate arrived just fine, although I only ordered a base pledge.

Got mine yesterday. All in good condition, hoping to try out a game over the weekend. Figures are pretty good, some quite heavy mould lines, but nothing too shocking.

Have started with these. Will add more details as a WIP elsewhere. Am really pleased with these, for board game miniatures I think they are brilliant.  

 

Unfortunately, because they have not shown agent Kate Corrigan in her 80's acid wash denim jacket (as per the first Hellboy stories) I want to cancel the whole thing...

Thanks for posting those images Brianuk.  I will be waiting a while for them to arrive.  The quality of the miniatures looks great and you have made the details pop already!

 

What are you using to prime the plastic, if you don't mind me asking?

Thank you! I washed them all in soapy water then used Vallejo surface primers,  but with a brush not an airbrush. The red is German Red Brown. ABE is a mix of UK green and Ultramarine blue, and the khaki is a mix (about 3:2) of Israeli sand and leather Brown. I then did an Army Painter strong tone ink wash. I am really liking using the coloured primers and then going straight in with a wash. It makes picking out details a lot quicker and really speeds things up.

Fantastic work.  I really appreciate your response!

Ours arrived yesterday rather than projected date of "sometime next week". Sweet! 

 

This thing is ENORMOUS. It's quite literally the biggest board game box I've ever seen in my life! :blink: I'm very pleased with the quality of the minis and all of the game pieces. In fact, if I'd known beforehand just how nice and thick and solid the furniture tokens would be, I wouldn't have bothered buying the 3D furniture (though that is nice as well. I just wish I could store it in the box but there's no space for it).

 

Huzzah!

I want to explore cutting into the various strips of foam that are in the box to hold things in place to see if that will make space for the plastic furniture (or at least most of it

Got my box a week ago -- I am very happy with the contents.  Seeing Mignola's art come to life this way is really enjoyable and the miniatures are better than I expected.   The tutorial was engaging.  I haven't played a game like this and liked it.

 

There is an exciting rumor on BGG that the pledge manager will be reopening to allow backers to add the new expansion "The Wild Hunt" to their orders (presumably wave two shipping?)

the pledge manager is now officially re-opened for folk to add (more) wave 2 stuff plus (mumble, mumble, forum rules about talking about non-KS stuff here, check the KS update for details)

      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).
