Mantic Games just kicked off their brand new version of Kings of War. Take a look!
Kings of War is a mass-battle fantasy miniatures game, written by Alessio Cavatore and produced by Mantic Games.
In Kings of War, massive armies of miniatures do battle on the tabletop, moving, fighting, shooting and casting magic to outmanoeuvre and outmuscle the opposition.
The game is governed by a set of easy to learn and intuitive rules, designed with simplicity in mind. You will never act in your opponent’s turn, meaning there is no time wasting, combat is determined using six-sided dice using the innovative Nerve system.
But simplicity doesn’t mean that the game isn’t fun or challenging – flanking and rear attacks are devastating, cavalry charges are powerful and a barrage of gun fire will knock even the most hardened warrior from their feet. This is a game of tactics and strategy, played out in fast, furious and fun games.
There are 12 armies to choose from: Elves, Dwarfs, Orcs, Goblins, Ogres, Abyssal Dwarfs, Undead, Twilight Kin, Basilea, the Kingdoms of Men, Forces of the Abyss and the Forces of Nature. In the new edition, each will feature new units or heroes, offering even more choice and variety.
This Kickstarter is to fund the 2nd Edition Kings of War Hardback Rulebook, a new tome that will build on the previous edition to create a bigger and better game.
It will include:
- Enhanced Game Play – with improvements to the rules to improve the strategy, speed and simplicity in the game.
- Refreshed Army Lists – all armies will be updated and rebalanced, and new units and new armies will be added to the core rulebook.
- Fantastic New Art – an update to the art library throughout the book to bring the world to life.
- Develop the Background – exploring the fantasy world and each of the factions like never before.
- and more!
Kings of War 2nd Edition grew out of gamer demand. After thousands of games and numerous tournaments played across the globe over the last 4 years the gaming community saw opportunity to streamline and develop the rules and army lists to an even higher level. The new rule set will allow you to play exciting games with huge armies – from start to finish in an evening. The background will let you engross yourself in the world of Kings of War and its history, and study your opponent’s force and the units at his disposal – so you can plan their defeat!
The campaign started at 1:30pm GMT on Friday 14th November and funded the $25,000 funding goal in about 5 minutes. It has since taken $155,000 at the time of writing, funding the demonic hard plastic Lower Abyssals and Succubi, some new heroes and accessories.
The Kickstarter was funded in hours and is headed to the stratosphere, north of $350,000 and growing! For anyone shopping around for a 28mm fantasy battle game with a pricepoint that is easy on the wallet, look no further.
The Kickstarter finishes 11:59pm Monday 1st December – please pledge your support!
