With less than 2 weeks left to go before the second starter set for Dwarf King’s Hold is released, folk are getting excited. The buzz at the Mantic Open Day was really enthusiastic and after my talks and demos a lucky few went away eagerly clutching pre-release copies that we’d managed to assemble early. I’m already hearing back about the fun and mayhem that the Orcs and Elves are getting up to. Check out the comments on this post, for example 🙂
The chaps at Mantic are even now doing the final touches to the layout on the new scenario (14) that comes with the bundle deal and the special Green Menace offer. But wait a moment. Scenario 14? There’s 6 in Dead Rising and 6 more in Green Menace – what happened to 13? Well, I’m not superstitious enough to skip a number, so it’s not that. It’s actually in Mantic Journal 4, which is out at the same time.
Scenario 13 pits Dwarfs against Undead and can be played with the contents of Dwarf King’s Hold – Dead Rising alone. Scenario 14, on the other hand, is the first scenario specifically designed for the Orcs and Dwarfs to battle it out, and also features the Mantic Dwarf Driller model.You need both starter sets to play this, which is why it comes with the bundle deal. It could almost be a plan.
And that’s not all. With a little luck I should also get the (Not Very) FAQ on the Mantic site in the next few days, and next week I’ll be doing some pieces for Beasts of War for their Dwarf King’s Hold excitements. It’s all go here!
