GenCon 2019 is almost upon us! From August 1st until 4th, Indianapolis will be bustling with gamers from around the world, ready for the world’s biggest tabletop event.
Of course, Mantic will be there in style and we’ve got a number of exciting treats up our sleeve. In the run up to GenCon we’ll be previewing some of the highlights on the Mantic Blog. Today we thought we would kick things off with the big one: Hellboy!
HELLBOY KICKSTARTER EDITION
Did you miss out on the Hellboy Kickstarter? Has your life been full of sorrow and regret ever since? Do you regularly wake up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat and screaming with anguish? Well fret not troubled reader, because at Gen Con we’ll have the last few Kickstarter editions available to purchase.
As with all our Kickstarters, we round the final number up and sell off the remaining copies to those unfortunate souls that missed out on the campaign. We’ve now only got around 100 copies, and these will be up for grabs at Gen Con. And don’t worry if you’re not able to make it to the show, we’ll have a few available from the website too.
THE WILD HUNT
GenCon will also be the first opportunity to buy the brand-new Hellboy expansion, The Wild Hunt! This new expansion wasn’t available during the Kickstarter (although we did re-open pledges for those backers interested in getting a copy) and this will be the first chance to grab a copy.
The Wild Hunt is due for release at retail this September – so keep your eyes peeled if you’re not heading to GenCon.
NIMUE, THE BLOOD QUEEN
We’re also delighted to announce our Hellboy Show Exclusive: Nimue, the Blood Queen! Each year we produce show exclusives for our games, e.g. Lee and Clementine for The Walking Dead or Zombie Blaine for Vanguard.
For Hellboy, we wanted to celebrate one of the key characters from The Wild Hunt and Nimue was the perfect choice. The Blood Queen is an Unexpected Threat and will cause all kinds of havoc if she pops up in your games.
Although Nimue will be available first at GenCon, don’t worry if you can’t make it to the show. Throughout GenCon weekend, Nimue will be available to order from the Mantic website. Make sure you’re signed up to the Mantic newsletter to find out when she’s live.
