Happy New Year everyone, Martin here – I wrote this a few days ago as I predicted a hangover for today 🙂 I hope you all had a great Christmas and Santa Claus was kind!
So 2020 is looking absolutely huge for Organised Play. One quick look at the two Kings of War community run resources KoWmasters and KoWtournaments shows that every month there is a tournament running at a store or club near you!
To support such amazing community activity we are launching a brand new Organised Play kit in January. The kit will have a fantastic token set made by our friends at Kraken Wargames plus certificates, spot prizes and a ‘how to run a tournament’ guide for those just starting their Tournament Organising journey. Check out the webstore soon for when they go live!
But that’s not all. Vanguard will get an updated OP Kit in February. Only available through stores, this updated set will have a brand new Mercenary for players to collect. For those needing a clue, she is a certain angry Varangur….
Adepticon is fast approaching and we have some super events for you once again. For Deazone there is the Battle for Schaum-berg IV on the Saturday. And across both Saturday and Sunday there is the BIG one. Clash of Kings North America! The highest placed Mantic Army can once again win travel to play in COK UK 2020. Both the events are live and you can register here.
Clash of Kings UK is in October 2020 and this year we have more qualifying events than ever before… so grab your ticket 🙂

One of the big changes for 2020 is that we’re changing the gaming club at HQ. Instead of being held every other Monday, we’ll be opening our doors from 2pm on Fridays.
This means you can wind down after a hard week at work by playing some of our fine games at HQ. We’ll also be open until slightly later too (10pm, in fact) so there’s plenty of time for dice-rolling action.
Make sure you join the Mantic Friday Night Club on Facebook to arrange games, find out what’s happening and more! We’ll see you from January 10th!
Pathfinders are Mantic’s army of excited and energetic demo and event volunteers. Each Pathfinder is a Mantic ambassador – a volunteer who has kindly given up their time to spread the word of Mantic in stores, clubs and events. They are available to our retailers to help with their events and to help promote our products in their stores.
Pathfinders are exuberant people who are passionate about Mantic. They are tasked with being infectious and building excitement in customers. They do this through:
- Getting them to play our great range of games.
- Showing them how great our miniatures are, and that they can be used in all manner of Fantasy and Science Fiction games!
- Introduce the notion to people that there is an affordable high quality alternative miniature range available to them.
Mantic is always looking for excited individuals who love to spread the Mantic message. In 2020 we want to expand the scheme and recruit more passionate individuals. If you are interested in showing people Mantic models and games then please send an email to Pathfinders@manticgames.com and we will get back to you with more information!
If this sounds like something you’d like to get behind, then get your email to us soon! Only two more blogs to go, tomorrow we’ll be back with Vanguard and then it’s The Walking Dead on Friday.
