Phew… the Armada launch was absolutely MASSIVE! We’re just about recovering from sending 1000s of ships around the globe – and that was only the first two fleets. Thank you for helping make this launch such a huge success and we can’t wait to hopefully get some face-to-face gaming in at HQ in the New Year. Did someone say “Armada tournament”?!
Anyway, without further ado let’s look at what’s coming up because there are plenty of exciting things heading your way in 2021.
When we were originally planning the Armada launch, we ordered enough books and tokens for what we thought would cover us for around three months. Instead we were pretty much sold out of our initial order in around a week! If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on a two-player set, some stores still have a small number left, but the Mantic website has been out of stock since October ☹
Well, we’re pleased to announce a re-stock of the two-player set will be in stock from February and we’re starting to take pre-orders again on the Mantic website. For a limited time, we’ll continue to make the special launch bundles available, just in case you missed out on those in November.
MDF SHIP TRAYS
Also available on the website right NOW is a new MDF ship tray. This can be used to keep all your tokens tidy and stop them spilling on the floor when you’re the target of a particularly vicious broadside.
These are a web exclusive product and we’ve made them available as singles or a bundle of four – if you want to easily kit out your entire fleet. You can order them here.
That’s not the only thing heading your way in January. The dwarf starter and booster boxes are available to pre-order from the Mantic website or your FLGS. For those of you that have been waiting to start your Armada journey with the dwarfs, then we’ve created a special getting started bundle that includes everything you need to start sailing the high seas of Pannithor.
FREE SAMPLE OF PIOUS
What’s more, as if all this wasn’t already exciting enough! We’ve got a FREE sample of Pious, the excellent Armada novel by Mark Barber.
In the early part of 2021, we’ll also be expanding the four launch fleets (Basileans, orcs, dwarfs and Empire of Dust) with new XL ships. If you thought the large ships were big, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
Despite only launching in late November, the reaction to Armada has been fantastic. 2021 is already promising to be a great follow-up year for Armada. In fact, we’re already planning an expansion supplement that we’re sure will fly off the shelves.
