Kickstarter Update! Mantic Does HeroQuest.

 Erm, I mean Advanced Dungeon Quest... Hero... Saga...

Throwing caution to the wind, Mantic have launched their newest Kickstarter (and it's still not Warpath V2 - the Veer-myn will have to wait) Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King's Quest - a surprising ballsy move considering GW, MB and's lawyers haven't done anything recently justify their commission.

Lawsuit jokes aside (although they did manage to get themselves in trouble with Geek & Sundry) their campaign is chugging along well, with almost $360 thousand dollars raised with 18 days left to go. If it picks up the pace slightly, it can easily become Mantics biggest Kickstarter to date.

(L-R) Khal Drogo, Disco Mage, Dwarf, and Useless Elf
Mantic have a history of delivering their Kickstarters (mostly) on time and, if the comments are to be trusted, they're turning away from their Restic for the models in this game, which is surely good news.

Sadly, this isn't KoW: Skirmish or, what i'd prefer, Kings of Warbands, It's still a cool looking retro dungeon crawler very much inspired by HeroQuest (and the solo play rules are intriguing... it seems entirely possible for you to run the game as the GM for AI-Deck controlled Heroes and Villains... an odd prospect).

Plus the KS-Exclusive Resin collectors editions are too good to pass up!

Anyway here's what your $100 will get you:


  1. That looks very promising, some nice minis included too and I especially like the look of the necromancer mid-summon

    1. He is a cool model, I expect to see him leading more than a few undead armies in the next few years.
