This Armada Terrain Rocks!

Maciej never fails to amaze us with some of the work he creates for his games of Armada! These floating Islands look superb and must be a joy to play with, very thematic.

Nick has converted a second Veer-Myn Pack Leader using bits from other Veer-Myn sprues and it looks right at home next to his other excellently painted leader!



GenCon Seminar

Lastly we wanted to let all you lucky folks that plan to attend GenCon this year, that we have secured a panel with Darkhorse Comics!

“From the Tabletop to the Page: Comics, Crowdfunding, and Games”

Game designers, comics creators, and more come together for this panel to discuss adapting TTRPGs for comics; creating board games and RPGs based on comics; and finding audiences and funding for these projects in different ways, including crowdfunding.

Book your free ticket here!



Be sure to check in again next Wednesday!

And if you want to make sure we spot your great work, use the hashtag #MyMantic when posting on social media.
