Hello Manticans, it’s Ronnie here!
I hope you are all well, and starting the New Year with a new warband, army or faction. I mean, the Nightstalkers have just gone up on pre-order, so it would be rude for you not to, really.
Of course, once you’ve got your lovely new miniatures, based them and then painted them up, you’re going to need a venue to show off your things of beauty.
And what better way than to do that than in the company of the Mantic team – at some of the biggest events in the calendar? There is no better place to start than AdeptiCon 2019! We have the full team in attendance at this huge wargaming event in late March.
The highlight of Adepticon is the opportunity be crowned Clash of Kings USA champion 2019 – and win a subsidised trip to compete in the Clash of Kings in the UK in October (terms and conditions apply). Or just thrash the pants off the 2 UK champions (Nick Williams and Dominic Staveacre) who we are flying over to compete. Surely you can’t let some filthy limeys take your crown?
If Kings of War isn’t your bag then we have great attendances already at the Vanguard, Deadzone and DreadBall events, along with epic 20,000pt battles of Kings of War to watch. They’re going to be an amazing spectacle.
Plus, we will have a fun-packed evening of gaming on the Saturday at Mantic Night. Including a bonkers swag bag, gaming until late and a Q&A with yours truly (plus some other folks who actually know what they are talking about). Buy your ticket here.
We will also have our usual stand running demos all weekend. You can order and collect at the show and we will have the new Hellboy game to look at ahead of shipping in April, plus the usual awesome deals, reveals and bargains over the event.
Adepticon 2019 – make it a date here.
Of course, if you are on the other side of the pond, we have a few events closer to home for you too… including the Spring Open Day on May 4th and, of course, we will be out in force at Salute and UK Games Expo. Also, mark your diaries for April 24th, when we’ll be holding a very special Hellboy event here in Nottingham. Fancy watching the new film in a cinema, playing the game and meeting Duncan Fegredo (artist for the likes of Darkness Calls and The Wild Hunt)? Well, make sure you’re signed up to the Mantic newsletter for details.
We are also hosting some gaming weekends at Mantic HQ, including Vanguard: Spearhead (although that sold out in about five seconds) and Kings of War Doubles Tournament (which hasn’t sold out yet). Feel free to come and join us at these fantastic little gatherings, or just swing by on Mantic Mondays for an evening of gaming and chat. Oh, and obviously, you can now grab a ticket for the UK’s biggest Kings of War tournament, Clash of Kings. Tickets are available here.
There are also some amazing events being hosted by our fantastic fans, Pathfinders and event organisers. We have Sharad’s Clash of Kings feeder event (Battlemasters), which is the longest running KoW event in the UK. Plus, the highest placed Mantic army will get a free ticket to Clash of Kings 2019! There’s also Franticon in March, which includes the DreadBall UK Championships – you can find out more here.
And if you fancy a beer, I’ll be down at the Kings of War Masters USA coming up real soon, in San Antonio Texas!
Looking forward to seeing you on a Mantic Stand somewhere soon 😊
