Game Week kicking off on the blog!

By now you should all know that Mantic is releasing it’s own ruleset to use with it’s ever expanding range of fantasy battle miniatures (did we mention there’s a Zombie Week just around the corner?) and we’re looking for your help and feedback on making it the best fantasy game out there with our public beta!

Here’s Ronnie to tell you more:

The public beta is accessible through this weeks newsletter, so if you or your friends want to participate, make sure you sign up to the newsletter now – those of you already signed up are already eligible for the beta.

The Fantasy Battleset comes ready packed with the rules to supplement the heap of plastic models includes in the setThe Fantasy Battleset comes ready packed with the rules to supplement the heap of plastic models included in the set

Of course by now we all know the Cunning Plan that Ronnie and Mantic developed to ensnare Alessio but the Kings of War ruleset – exactly what’s it about? Alessio spilled the beans in a recent* interview with Beasts of War:

* note, as stipulated during the video specific rules may have changed between filming and the copy of the rules you’ll get in your hands!

So, public beta this weekend and you’ll need to be signed up to the newsletter to get it – who’s excited? Drop us a comment below!


  1. Eagerly awaiting the Beta on the rules. Very curious as to where Mantics fans believe the rules should be heading.

  2. I may have to cancel my weekend plans if these arrive early enough

  3. Really excited about the rules beta and the Open Day, just need to wrestle the day off.

  4. Looks like tomorrow will see my long suffering Elves finally get assembled.

  5. Game Week!!! Game On!!!

  6. This seems to be the best way to release a rules set. Great idea incorporating feedback into the the game you want your customers to buy. This will guarantee a great well balanced and hopefully a strategically changelling game. Bring it on!

  7. I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it
    I’m about to lose control and I think I like it
    I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it
    and I know I know I know I know I know I want to

  8. Ive been waiting for the rules for kings of war since mantic released their awsome Elves miniatures. For a 20 year hobby game collector and gamer I think its great to get to participate in the playtesting of a game I hope to play for years. So to Ronnie and Alessio, Thanks for the opportunity.

  9. OT – but I would love to get a nice shot of all the minis on the shelves in the background.

  10. I’m glad to see that Mantic has managed to wrangle one of the best veteran game designers out there to design their rules set. I’m eagerly awaiting the beta release.

  11. I have been eagerly awaiting this set of rules… Ever since the Beast of War videos I have been obsessed with getting my hands on them! I look forward to playing handfuls of games with droves of Mantic plastics!


  12. Awesome. Me and the lads have a game planned, one of them has been gaming for aaaaaages, so knows a lot about gaming and how rules work so will be interesting to see how our veteran takes these rules on. We’re just setting the forces up ready for the beta!

  13. Sounds great. I’ve spent £45 on… other rules, which are cranky, complicated and already full of corrections.

    To get elegant, robust and innovative rules for free is just awesome.

    What I paid for that rulebook, I could have spent on skeletons…

  14. You can always take it back with receipt? then join the Mantic Fanatics group on warseer?
