Hello! It’s Clive here from the Trade team at Mantic Games. I wanted to let you know about an awesome new project we’re launching at Mantic, called the Premium Store Programme.
One of the easiest ways to pick up Mantic products is at your FLGS (Friendly Local Gaming Store) and we feel that the best way to do that is if there is lots of stock to choose from, there and then. That’s where our new ‘Premium Stores” come in!
Stores that sign up to the programme will carry every item in our Core and Essential range (all those items that we sell week in and week out all over the globe!) and keep them stocked for you. They will even have a demo table ready for you to try out Kings of War too. On top of that (as if that wasn’t enough) they will even hold regular events and tournaments for those interested. In the next few weeks, we will announce a few more stores as we fit them out with all of our Kings of War, Vanguard and TerrainCrate ranges – ideal for you to just pop in, chat to the stores and pick up your favourite miniatures from your FLGS.
The first of the stores visited this month to “upgrade” to Premium was Mighty Lancer Games in Bridlington (where work means I also get to play a few intro games after stocking those shelves).
Mighty Lancer Games are a family owned store in the seaside town of Bridlington, East Yorkshire. Originally started online by Nathan Long, a gamer whose dream was to bring the miniatures and products he loved at affordable prices to other game and hobby enthusiasts, the business soon grew and the next logical step was to open a physical store. From this small beginning a bigger store was born in the heart of the town able to house tournaments, weekly game nights and a huge and varied range of stock, making Mighty Lancer Games Your One Stop Gaming shop.
The very next day we invaded Tabletop Republic in High Wycombe (and yes, more games were enjoyed… it’s a hard life working for Mantic Games!)😊
“Tabletop Republic is still relatively new on the gaming store scene having only started at the end of 2018 but with an absolutely awesome community behind us we’ve been able to go from strength to strength. For a while now we’ve wanted to get Kings of War more exposure in store; and have a wider choice on units here on the shelves for people who want to get into it. There’s always been this budding interest from our customer base, and being a premium stockist is really going to allow us to turn that interest into a strong community. We’ve had a couple of tournaments already, and we’ve got more planned for the future. We’ve got some wily local players who are regulars on the tournament scene, so the knowledge base is also good for newcomers to feed off.
We’re really looking forward to making most of this brilliant relationship with Mantic and see Kings of War become one of our core ranges. Now, if you need me, I have several troll hordes to assemble…”

To help you know if a store is a Premium store or not, we will be adding small logo icon to our website under the store’s name, showing the ranges they’ve got in full for you.
More to come in the next few weeks…
