It's all going to come to en end. But Mantic is going out with a bang.

Just to collect all the stuff that's come so far...

An hour left, we've blown through all stretch goals, hit the top 40 most successful UK KS of all time...

And I'm pretty sad actually. That comment section has been astounding. Nothing like it I've ever experienced online.

So, is this going retail, at all?
Yeah, its the beginning of line that will follow the Hellboy and BPRD storylines sequentially. Theyve got years more content and expansions once this hits the shelves in 9 months. Of course the retail version wont have a quarter of the stuff in the KS.

so, its all over. In the end we ran out of Stretch Goals, we passed them all. The 40th most successful KS in the Tabletop games category, and 2nd in the UK of all time.

Most of the actual named characters I won't be interested in, but a lot of the monsters (like Deep Ones/Hybrids) can be used in multiple campaign settings.

Most of those will be available as Minion booster packs.

Geez, that's a lot of stuff! Even if I had the money and liked Hellboy, I wouldn't have room for all that! Congratulations!

I'm just thinking of the year it's going to take me to paint it all.

GF"You blew how much on this boardgame and we can't even play it?"
Me:"Not until it's ALL painted!"

Just filled out my pledge survey for rewards. £447 total. Damn that's a chunk of change.

That all-in resin pledge was brutal
I can imagine. I only went in for the core game + stretch goals, the Mexico expansion, and the 3D furniture and doorways.

Better hope itsa good game then! :O
Doesn't matter much. A crapload of Hellboy miniatures is what I was after, and what I got. If the game's fun, nifty, if not, I have dozens of other games to put them to use.

That’s how I feel about it too. Even if the game turns out to be lousy, we’ll have lots and lots of cool toys to use in other games.

How long would it take you to paint that Tristram?

If I had sufficient free time, probably a month, but since that's in limited supply at the moment I can't say for sure Hope to get mine done before Wave 2 minis arrive

Glad to see they used the dark grey plastic that holds detail. That soft light plastic sometimes used is shit for detail.

Yeah, Mantic know what they're doing. They've been leaping forward in the last few years, I guess not content to just be the "cheapo GW".

I have to say that I was really not expecting them to be anywhere close to on time with this KS either, I figured best case scenario 3 - 6 months delay, but everything has pretty much gone like clockwork.

Mine arrived earlier this week, but I haven't had time to unbox it yet.

What's the board game itself like to play?
