Board Games - Mantic Dwarf King's Hold

by Baragash on Sat Apr 09, 2011 5:55 pm
So assembling Dwarf King's Hold is part of my Q2 Hobby Challenge

Just finished the 12 Skeletons for the game as well. There's also a Pit of Souls (used in the game) and a Pile of Bones (you get counters for these, but if you had enough Mantic skellies, as I do with a 1k army, you could use "actual" piles), and a Skeleton Rat (used in Kings of War).

They were nice models to put together:
- mould lines have been run along the edges of fabric etc, so that basically means there aren't that many to clean up
- unlike GW skellies that attach on the spine, Mantic skellies lock over each other (about half...

Mantic: Dwarf King's Hold

by Baragash on Thu Jun 09, 2011 7:43 pm
So the second game in the series has been available for pre-sale at some online retailers for a few weeks, but as I want to support Mantic directly for the moment I waited for it to go up on their site... and it has, so I pre-ordered it :D

Events: Salute 2011

by Baragash on Fri Apr 08, 2011 1:23 am
Whilst I'm at Salute, thought I may as well use my discount from buying Dwarf King's Hold to pick up some Mantic Undead Revenant Cavalry and Dwarf Shieldbreakers, so I ordered them for pick-up.

Dwarf King's Hold - played some games

by Baragash on Tue Apr 26, 2011 10:53 pm
Played some games today with my little (well 25) bro - he's ex-GW, Space Crusade etc, so not like I'm playing a noob ;)

Rules greyness

Pile 'o Bones - we thought the language is unclear here. Initially it seems reassembling = 1 action, but then it goes on to say that it counts as a model that has had an action played on it.
a) this is redundant repetition, only Dwarf Follow-Ons can be played on a model that has already acted
b) this limits the model to 1 action (of reassembling) regardless of how many points the token was worth
