Mantic Games Launched their most recent Kickstarter today, this time the aim of the project is to fund the 2nd Edition of their Kings of War fantasy battle game. In case you are unfamiliar with the game, Kings of War is a two (or more) player miniatures game consisting of armies arranged in ranked regiments. The emphasis being on large forces with many of the units being available in

The 2nd Edition of Kings of War Hardback will feature the following updates:

  • Enhanced Game Play - with improvements to the rules to improve the strategy, speed and simplicity in the game.
  • Refreshed Army Lists - all armies will be updated and re-balanced with new units and armies being added to the core rulebook.
  • Fantastic New Art - an update to the art library throughout the book to bring the world to life.
  • Develop the Background - exploring the fantasy world and each of the factions like never before.

The Kickstarter was funded within an hour of going live, completely smashing their goal of $25,000 for the project. The pledges are still racking up with the stretch goals being quickly ticked off as well. 

As the majority of miniatures already exist for Kings of War, this kick starter can be an excellent way of getting your hands on some of the existing range for a discount. A pretty lucrative deal for both existing players looking to expand and those wishing to pick up Kings of War for the first time.

To get in on the action, head over to the Kings of War 2nd Edition Kickstarter Page and pledge your support.
