Dungeon Saga – Last Few Hours!

It’s been a crazy time since I last posted about the Kickstarter only 48 hours ago. Stretch goal after stretch goal has been absolutely smashed and another $200,000 has been raised. All in two days!

Take a look at all the great stuff that has been unlocked and, if your sitting on the fence, hopefully this will sway you (you only have a few hours to go)…

That’s a lot of cool stuff. We also finally managed to unlock something people seem to be foaming at the bit for, the simple door…





And one of my favorites is some kind of giant Abyssal beasty which will come in something similar to one of these concept designs :)…

There has also been a couple of great articles over on the games designers, Jake Thornton, blog. These delve into what else will be in the game including hero advancement, downtime between dungeons etc. Check ’em out…

Dungeon Saga – Only 60 Hours To Go!


That’s right, there is now only 60 hours left to grab yourself an amazing deal, a whole host of figures and a plethora of Kickstarter exclusives in what has shaped up to be one of Mantic Games best Kickstarters to date!

I’ve already pledged for the game, and to be fairly honest I don’t see why you wouldn’t want to. For $100 (approx £65) you get all of the following…

pledge box

Value for money? Hell yes! Even if you are sitting thinking ‘I’ll just pick it up at when it hits retail’, you’d be paying out £50 or so, and only getting about 50% of the models that you see above, and that doesn’t even touch on the exclusives and add-ons!

So far I’ve been incredibly impressed with the add-ons and stretch goals, but there are a few that have really caught my eye. The two expansions for a start, the first the Warlord of Galahir adds an entire new story to your quest and lets you use the fantastic Kapoka dryad character you get in your basic pledge…


The second, my favorite by far, is the Infernal Crypt, adding in a whole host of fantastic Abyssal models. These have been in the background for Kings of War and Mantica in general for years, but this is the first chance to find out anything really solid about them and get a great look at their appearance. And boy do they look fantastic…


I’ve always had a bit of a thing for evil fantasy armies, so these guys really float my boat (in a lake of fiery blood, obviously). There’s even a wee bit more to come for the Abbysals in the form of a creature to lead the forces you get in the expansion, but that requires some more pledging from all you lovely people out there. Hint, hint 😉

One of the most recent stretch goals to be unlocked was for this tome…


And I was surprised to say this is the one I’m most looking forward to. Just take a look at what it will contain…

– Write an in-depth background section describing the Mantica setting and the races that inhabit it.

– Add a comprehensive system for building your own heroes and villains.

– Add a character pad for keeping track of your newly-designed heroes on the tabletop.

– Boost your bonus cards and counters to include new equipment and spells.

That’s gonna extend the life of the game extensively, hopefully making it a lot more RPGish whilst it’s at it, whilst also expanding on the lore and background for the Mantica universe. This thing is really building up Mantics fantasy setting to a massive degree, very similar to how Deadzone has been doing the same thing for the Warpath universe.

Finally I wanted to touch on the legendary characters. These will be the ultimate bad ass version of the characters you get in the basic pledge, with the best armour, weapons and equipment, and I hate to sound like I’m repeating myself, but they look damn good…

So, really, what are you waiting for? Get over here and jump on board! The more of you that do, the more likely I get some more free toys as well 😀

Dungeon Saga – Dwarf Kings Quest

Mantic Games are currently working on their latest Kickstarter for Dungeon Saga: Dwarf King’s Quest and it’s already a record breaker. It managed to reach it’s funding goal in just 4 minutes! That’s right 4 minutes! Wow! So let’s take a look with whats been happening and all of the reasons I’ve pledged towards this already fantastic looking game 😀


It centres around the classic struggle between a party of heroes and the forces of darkness, represented by the Undead. One player takes on the mantle of the Necromancer and controls his evil host, whilst up to four other players can lead the mighty heroes on their adventure.


The game contains coloured plastic miniatures and full colour, modular dungeon tiles ready to use right out of the box. No assembly is required.

Whether you’re a veteran of the dungeon genre or you’re simply looking for a great game to play with the kids, Dungeon Saga has something for everyone!

This Kickstarters very unique in that there is only a couple of options for pledge levels; $1 for those looking to back, but can’t afford the whole shebang and $100 to get the game and all of the extra stretch goal goodness that has already been unlocked. Take a look at what you currently get for that price…

Worth $100? Definitely. Without a doubt this is already looking like incredible value for money, with a great amount of miniatures, extras and Kickstarter exclusives. It looks like just this will keep you going with the game for a good amount of time.
Let’s take a look at the current stretch goal and some of my favorites already locked in….

That’s some very cool plastic terrain for the game which reminds me in a very nostalgic way of Heroquest and the terrain that came with that (in fact the whole thing reminds me of Heroquest, which is no bad thing :))


My favorite of the unlocks so far has to be Blaine! A regular of every Mantic Kickstarter so far, it was amazing to see him in a Fantasy game and if the concept art is anything to go by this will be one cracking model!


Resin version of all the main heroes will be available to add on to your pledge, but their also doing the Legendary versions. These will be for when your heroes have advanced through the story and gained items and abilities that make them so much more special. It’s great to see that this can be represented on the figure and not just the stat cards 🙂


The first part of the first expansion being made as part of the Kickstarter was this great hero, a shapeshifting Dryad. Another great piece of concept art that gets me reallt excited for the miniature but also a great sneak peak at what could be done for the nature force for Kings of War!


Also unlocked is the first expansion, Warlord of Galahir, introducing some greenskins to the game.

As you can see thats a fair amount of great stuff and I have’nt even showed you all of it! Head over to the Kcikstarter page and take a look for yourself; https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/dungeon-saga-the-dwarf-kings-quest

You can also check out a couple of videos, a couple of which are from a seminar held here in Edinburgh that I went along to with none other than Ronnie Renton…

There’s also a couple of competitions going on at the moment, both of which give you the opportunity to win a pledge in the current Kickstarter, or 5 copies of the retail copy of the game. The first you can find on Deathwatch Studios Facebook Page and the second being run by Board Game Geek, so get over to both of these pages (they are separate competitions so make sure you enter both) and hopefully you win the awesome prize. Best of luck folks 😀

I really hope you will come along and pledge for this great game, not only because it will hopefully net me some more shiny toys, but because it looks like it will be an awesome game. If you’re new to Kickstarter you can check out our Guide to Pledging, Stretch Goals and Add-ons here. Mantic will of course be on hand to answer any questions you might have!
