Take it away Mantic
“…We have new expansion book for Kings of War – Destiny of Kings. This awesome tome is about the same in size as Uncharted Empires and is utterly packed with new content – more than I can likely go over here.
Taking centre stage is a new chapter in the Kings of War and Dungeon Saga world. Mortibris has moved on from Dolgarth and now threatens to destroy the world of Mantica as we know it. Leading a combined force of Undead and Abyssals, he marches on the civilised world.
You can now get Legendary Mortibris through the Mantic Points scheme. Simply collect enough red Mantic Point stickers, order the figure via the website, and post your stickers to us, and we’ll send him to you.
Standing before him are the free peoples of Mantica, including the Legendary Heroes of Dolgarth themselves. This is the Quest of the Necromancer campaign, and everything you need to know to play through it are included in the book.
The war is fought of a series of several linked battles, whose rules can be used for either the armies specifically stated or any forces of your choosing. Each one is simple, yet tactical – giving you and your opponent a new set of challenges.
There’s also a new scenario for Dungeon Saga, as four masters of evil infiltrate a Dwarf Hold to retrieve a powerful artifact.
Finally, there are full, balanced rules for fielding the Heroes of Dolgarth, the necromancer Mortibris, the terrible Ba’el and the mighty Valendor in your games of Kings of War.
In addition to the narrative campaign, the book contains an additional six scenarios – similar to those in the campaign, but each set to their own theme. You can make a valiant last stand, protect a valuable baggage train or try to break through and enemy stronghold. Each of these can be used with existing armies, so there are hours of games for you and your friends to enjoy. On top of all this, there are also revised rules and guidelines for playing your own campaigns.
We’ll be running a global campaign using these rules in the summer, so you have until then to muster your forces. Will you side with the forces of good? Or will you bring ruination to the world with Mortibris’ Legions? Will your army be led by Legendary figure such as Rodin or Ba’el, or will you carve your own legends in glory? Choose your side now, for the Abyss is opening and the world will change.
Merry Christmas everyone!”

There are a lot of moving parts going on here. When Kings of War 2.0 launched this summer, folks were saying it needed more expansion books to really step into the footsteps of Warhammer Fantasy. Books like this show that Mantic is speeding away towards expanding the Kings of War universe. Then note the physical and digital options being offered, as well as the products tie-in rules for not only Kings of War, but boardgames such as Dungeon Saga. Last but not least, that is a perfectly reasonable pricepoint there at $24.99
Not bad Mantic – not bad at all!
