What is the Tyrant of Halpi?

A huge dragon.

Karrathor the Unbroken is a direct descendant of the Father of all Dragons. He makes his lair deep withing the Halpi mountain range, between the blighted land of Tragar and the holds of the Free Dwarf Clans.

Once the noble steed of an Elven King, he turned on his master and killed him, taking the Elf’s crown for his own. An ancient heirloom of the Elves, the crown grants mastery over all who see it. These unfortunates become thralls to the dragon’s will. Over centuries, Karrathor has languished, becoming richer and more powerful with each wayward adventurer.


Now, four heroes have been tasked with reclaiming the crown for the Elven Realms. They must face not only the mighty dragon himself, but also the many thralls that protect him. On top of this, if the heroes cannot resist the crown’s power, they will end up enslaved to the dragon’s will for eternity.

Dragons and Dungeons

The Tyrant of Halpi includes six new narrative scenarios to play though, as you descend through the ruins of a Dwarvern hold to the final keep of the dragon. Each of these battles sees you facing off against the dragon’s numberless thralls. The final battle is fought over an enormous horde of gold with both the lives and minds of the heroes at stake. Karrathor is an opponent of terrifying power and in such a large space, there is nowhere to hide from his wrath.


Although the Tyrant is undoubtedly the star of the show, the expansion also includes two new heroes – Ibrahim, the Basilean Paladin and and Ally, the Halfling Thief. There are two detailed coloured plastic models to represent these characters in your quests. As with our other Expansions, these two heroes are bolstered by others from Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King’s Quest.

You’ll also find all of the additional cards, tiles and rules you’ll need to for the scenarios, as well as optional rules for using this expansion with the Adventurer’s Companion.


I used to be an Adventurer like you….

The heroes’ exploits in the mountains made them legends in their own right. If you want to represent the heroes at their peak, then pick up the Legendary Heroes of Halpi. These metal models would also work well as new heroes for your own Dungeon Saga campaign or for a Kings of War army – such as a Basilean High Paladin and a Halfling Master Sergeant from the League of Rhordia.

    Mantic minis continue to veer wildly between the quite nice and the… um… did the intern make that? And I’m a big Mantic fan.

    • vlad78

      Quoted for truth. Sadly. But their awful paintjobs never helps.

      • Not so much ‘Eavy Metal as ‘Eavy Drinkers.

    • Spinocus

      Agreed, Mantic’s Kings of War miniatures are consistently inconsistent. I can’t help but think that Ronnie is giving Mantic’s fantasy line the red-headed stepchild treatment.

      • euansmith

        It is almost like they have taken on an apprentice and are training them up to make minis. I just wish they’d hire some of the excellent mini sculptors out there (coughcoughkevwhitecoughcough).

        I am like some of their new stuff for Warpath/Deadzone, and was quite impressed with about half of my KoW Forces of Nature army.

    Karrathor the unbroken is a direct descendant from the father of all dragons, Erm ain’t all dragons direct descendants from the father of all dragons 😜

    • The ones with red hair are descendants of the milkman of all dragons.

      • palaeomerus

        Yeah. Dave. He’s a beach bum now though. The dairy let him go. Kind of sad really. It seemed like he finally had his life all worked out, and then boom.

    • palaeomerus

      No some of them are descended through the cousins and dragon biology is complicated what with fixe sexes and two kind of eggs and the flatch and the gromozt and the yinkazoos.

      • LordRao

        And then there’s the caves. The caves!

  • Talos2

    There are some amazing dragon models on the market nowadays, that isn’t one of them. Shame, I’d started to consider ds to be mantic first serious model range. But that looks more akin to the type of dragon toys you see in nets in Poundland. I like the guy with the money bag though

    • euansmith

      The Dragon also doubles up as a gorgon type thing for the Chaos Dwarves with a head swap.

      • Talos2

        There’s very probably one of those in the net of monsters too
