|Description:||KoW is a new concept for mass battle miniature wargaming – a game that is easy to learn and fast to play, yet will take time and experience to master. With few and simple rules, there is little to get in the way of the fun and slaughter. KoW is a challenging game of strategy, where you can pit your wits against your opponent without devoting half of your brainpower to remember a plethora of convoluted rules.|
And that’s not all, the innovative turn structure allows you to play KoW using a time-keeping tool (like a stopwatch or a chess clock) to time your moves. As the seconds tick away, the pressure and excitement this adds makes KoW unlike any other large-scale wargame you’ve ever played before.

Martin’s Hobby Blog – Kings of War Army – Nightstalkers
Hey everyone, Martin here. So Rob thinks he is a funny guy and is constantly giving me grief about sticking to one hobby project at a time (now come on, who does that kind of madness?). And one of his utterly hilarious jokes is that I will NEVER complete a Kings of War army. Not one to turn my back on a challenge and never to allow Rob any high ground what-so-ever, I have set to work on building a Nightstalker force ready for the Kings of War Doubles event in July! I’ve really enjoyed painting up my Vanguard Nightstalker warband, so I can follow some of the themes I used for those through into the Army. To start with I wanted to use as much cool stuff as possible from the new releases so I started with a Shadow-Hulk. This is a massive kit and I cant wait to get it painted – I have given it a zenithal highlight for now. I love the look of the Butchers Block formation from Clash of Kings 19 so to fit alongside the Shadow Hulk I am part way through painting 2 Hordes of Butchers. This formation is 630 points so will be [...]

DreadBall Interplanetary MegaBowl – semi-final 2
It’s the galaxy’s biggest sporting event this weekend – the DreadBall Interplanetary MegaBowl! To celebrate we’ve got FREE rules to download and some incredible offers on teams, books and mats over on the Mantic website. Don’t miss out. Hello sports fans! Welcome to our second semi-final. As usual I’m joined by my eager co-host Dobbs. We’ll just have to wait a moment while Dobbs finishes his SlushyBurger. Sorry Elmer, I skipped my third lunch today, so needed to grab a bite. I’m hoping this match is more enjoyable than Something Fishy’s victory over Dot Matrix. We heard that Coach Martin fled the country after that game and is now hiding out, working on his new team. God speed, Martin! Anyway, onto today’s game and we’ve got a second NeoBots team heading to the pitch. The Go, Go, Go Bots have been the underdogs of this tournament, but they’ve made it through this far. Meanwhile, the Tsduo-Scientists have been a solid bet all the way through. The Tsudo-Fans have even started wearing gowns to games. Anyway, enough from us, let’s get on with the game. Are you going to eat your SlushyDog, Elmer…? GO, GO, GO BOTS They’ve fought bravely throughout the [...]

Nightstalker: Battle Tactics
Kyle Przelenski, part of the Master Crafted crew and the only man brave enough we could find to handle the Nightstalkers, is here to give you some battle tactics to get the most out of this terrifying faction. Over to you Kyle… Nightmares made real – Mantica’s most horrifying army burst onto the scene this week with the official release of the Nightstalkers! This faction offers some unique builds for your games of Kings of War and can be one of the most rewarding armies to play when done right. Let’s take a look at some of the tactical applications of these creatures on the tabletop and how you can lead your enemies straight into the void. THE PLAYSTYLE There are two distinct army special rules that make the Nightstalkers stand out. The first is the Stealthy special rule. A large number of units in the army automatically come equipped with a built in -1 to hit modifier in shooting. Utilizing this along with cover provides a powerful defense against those pesky Elf bow shots. The second special rule is the ability, Mindthirst. This one turns traditional generalship on its head by stealing your opponent’s Inspiring sources. While they themselves [...]

Clash of Kings USA comes to Adepticon – play the best and win a visit to the UK
Hello Manticans, it’s Ronnie here! I hope you are all well, and starting the New Year with a new warband, army or faction. I mean, the Nightstalkers have just gone up on pre-order, so it would be rude for you not to, really. Of course, once you’ve got your lovely new miniatures, based them and then painted them up, you’re going to need a venue to show off your things of beauty. And what better way than to do that than in the company of the Mantic team – at some of the biggest events in the calendar? There is no better place to start than AdeptiCon 2019! We have the full team in attendance at this huge wargaming event in late March. The highlight of Adepticon is the opportunity be crowned Clash of Kings USA champion 2019 – and win a subsidised trip to compete in the Clash of Kings in the UK in October (terms and conditions apply). Or just thrash the pants off the 2 UK champions (Nick Williams and Dominic Staveacre) who we are flying over to compete. Surely you can’t let some filthy limeys take your crown? If Kings of War isn’t your bag then [...]
