Advance Order of Dwarf King's Hold: Dead Rising


Mantic Advanced Orders wrote:The much anticipated Dwarf King's Hold board game is here! It sees the steadfast Dwarfs seek to reclaim their ancestral home from the living dead, venturing forth to fight the foul minions of the Necromancer who soil the noble halls of the Dwarf King’s Hold.

This is a 2 player, scenario based board game, with one player taking control of the Dwarfs, while the other commands the Undead. There are 6 scenarios to play through, each build upon each other, culminating in a huge, desperate battle which will ultimately decide who controls the King's Hold

Included in this game are over 25 plastic figures including 5 Dwarf Ironclad Warriors, 2 Shieldbreakers, 12 Skeletons and 10 Revenants. There are lots of little extras that are fully usable within the game, such as the Dwarf Pit Dog, the dead Dwarf, piles of bones plus plenty of fun conversion bits.

You also get a huge pile of fantastic looking dungeon tiles; an elegant, innovative Rules-set, loads of in-game action counters and more than enough dice to play!

This set includes:
•Dwarf Kings Hold Ruleset
•Dice
•5 Dwarf Ironclad Warriors
•2 Shieldbreakers
•12 Skeletons
•10 Revenants
•A full dungeon's worth of tiles
•In-game acton counters
•Mantic Guide
Models supplied unassembled and unpainted.

Pshh ... yes, and Mantic's introductory game. But with two armies instead of one party against monsters.

Not really. The board tiles might be appropriate for that kind of game, but the game itself sounds extremely shallow.

I really don't get the cartoon. Does he really not know what a hold is or is he just playing on the phrase? In either case it's not funny.

Of course I know what a hold is. It's some sort of martial arts grappling move.

So Dwarf King's Hold turned up

Models:


Overall impression is that the set is professionally produced/good quality as you would hope/expect. Had a quick skim of the rules and most of it is easy to pick up, though a couple of sections will need a slow read to make sure I understand it correctly. Looking forward to playing this in the next few weeks (playing BFG at the club tomorrow night).

Shipping delays should get sorted out fairly quickly... they only ever happen when they get swamped with orders... last time it happened was when they sold 100,000 zombie sprues shortly after launch and couldn't physically make them as fast as people were buying them.

Thanks for the picture Baragash, the set looks really nice and I think I'll be adding it to my next mantic purchase.

Dwarf King’s Hold Gameplay Video and More!

Who could forget that in less than two weeks, the fantabulous Dwarf King’s Hold: Green Menace game is being released from the warehouse and onto the shelves of your local retailer soon. Yes, the boxes are in, the finished artwork looks fantastic, and people were absolutely blown away with how Dwarf King’s Hold (both Dead Rising and Green Menace) played at our Open Day. Even our very own Josh Roberts was impressed by how differently the two games feel and play.

Well, in the first of our Dwarf King’s Hold content for this week (and you’re in for a treat because Beasts of War are holding a Dwarf King’s Hold week next week too!) we’ve got two great videos to show you, which Beasts of War have kindly republished after their issues with Youtube.

Both of them come from a time when Dwarf King’s Hold was but a prototype, but actually they both still stand true – of particular note is the gameplay video. Want to see how to play Dwarf King’s Hold: Dead Rising?

Not to forget, if the video has blown you away with it’s simple mechanics and tactical gameplay and the large pack of really cool tiles and fantastically detailed miniatures has sucked you in too (the amount of people making really large boards by joining all the tiles together at the Open Day was hilarious), then check out our Dwarf King’s Hold game bundle, where you can get Dwarf King’s Hold: Dead Rising, Green Menace, a limited edition Dwarf Driller figures and a bundle-exclusive scenario.

This scenario is the first time the Dwarfs get to fight against the Orcs, and includes rules for using the Dwarf Driller figure, so it really is something unique and different – and only available in the Dwarf King’s Hold bundle.

Get yours now and be the first to get the free goodies, and check back tomorrow for more!

Does anyone know if the original is back in stock yet, I've been waiting as it has been sold out for some time.

Also, has anyone got a review on their blog or posted elsewhere they can link to?
