DreadBall Digital



Now that the dust has settled on the Wave III DreadBall Xtreme dispatch, we’re clearing the decks so that we can close the Kickstarter down.

DreadBall Digital

The following DreadBall items are all being digitized at the moment:

  • DreadBall Season Five and Six (Mantic Digital)
  • Challenge Cup (Mantic Digital)
  • Xtreme, Xtreme Player Manual and Xtreme Xpansion (Mantic Digital)
  • DreadBall Xtreme Short Story Compilation

Mantic Digital have supplied us with a date of the 30th October for when this will be sent to those of you who are eligible.

The Rules Committee has finished the Furon Arena and Zombie Pitch Invasion Rules and we are aiming to get them included in the digital dispatch above, but please be aware they may come in a second wave.

The Playbook Apps are still in development and are coming soon.

We’ll let you know next week how we are getting on!

SpeedBall 2 Steam Keys

We have received the SpeedBall 2 Download Keys from Steam and we will be sending those out to backers who added on this product this week – look out for them in your inbox soon!

DreadBall UK Open Final

This is your last opportunity to get tickets for the UK DreadBall Regional Tournament Open Final!

Held at the illustrious Mantic Towers, this UK event will pit the country’s regional champions – and anyone else who would like to participate, the event is open to all! – against each other in a battle for the Ultimate Tyrant trophy.

If you have a DreadBall team and fancy a fun day out gaming with the Mantic gang, get your tickets here!

Rush 7


Coaches, Players, MVPs, Sponsors and Cheerleaders,

The picking line is dead and dismantled; the warehouse crew are cleaning up and picking Kings of War. It has been a monumental undertaking, but we have completed the dispatch operation for Dreadball Xtreme.

If you don't have you pledge yet - don't panic! Many of these will still be en route and we're already seeing many backers posting up pictures of their new teams and models. If your pledge hasn't shown up by the end of next week, then get in touch and we'll look into any issues that may have cropped up.

Additionally, if you think that anything is missing from your pledge, you can send us a missing parts form - - which we're working through and packing/dispatching as quickly as we can. If you've already submitted one of these, it is in the middle of being processed and will be addressed soon.

If you aren't sure what you are meant to be receiving, then please refer to the picking sheet located in your order and your original survey confirmation email.

We really hope that you enjoy your rewards - thank you for joining us on this amazing journey!

Final Shipping + Mantic Open Day



These orders are the last of the penultimate batch of DreadBall Xtreme Frenzy pledges.

As you can see by the boxes in this following image, there are some crazy big orders!

With the 2nd Edition Rulebook into the warehouse tomorrow, this naturally leads us into our final batch of orders to pick for this Kickstarter - the last Xtreme backers in the schedule who also have a Kings of War pledge, (and subsequently prioritised as the very first Kings of War orders to be picked and dispatched) – will start shipping.

There's going to be some very big boxes going in the post indeed!

Customer Service

With a shipping operation this large and complex, sometimes mistakes do happen. If you do find you have something missing then please use the Missing items form.

Please do not contact us before the 1st of September regarding the whereabouts of your order. If it has not arrived after that date then please use the Missing Items form for this as well.

Mantic Open Day + Brush with Death Global Painting Competition

If you need a good excuse to get your Kickstarter miniatures built and painted, then the Mantic Open Day is back in November!

Held on the 21st November at the Mantic Open Day, the format of the show is getting a refresh, with a heavy focus on Kings of War and DreadBall.

- A Day of Gaming: with events including Chariot Racing, Zombie Hunt, Deathmatch and StreetBall, there are plenty of prizes to be won by beating the competition in our challenge events!

- Secret Room: Entry to the Secret Room is drawn from a few special tickets in our raffle. Dare you enter and find out what lurks inside?

- Sneak Peak Corner: with awesome displays (light up DreadBall Stadium anyone?) and demonstrations from our in-house painting and graphics team, we'll also be showing off never-before-seen concept art and figures.

- Get a spot in our seminars with Ronnie and the team. Games Designers Alessio Cavatore and Jake Thornton will be on hand and with Warpath, Deadzone, Dungeon Saga, Kings of War 2nd Edition, new DreadBall Seasons and the, er, other thing we're doing, all to talk about, you can be assured that there will be plenty of sneak peaks on offer...

- Learn to play: our crack team of Pathfinders will be on hand to show you how to play Kings of War 2nd Edition and DreadBall - The Futuristic Sports Game.

There are two types of ticket on offer and both are limited for the show due to space considerations:

– Single Ticket: £10

– Group Ticket for four people: £30

Tickets get you access to the Mantic Open Day, and include a free show-exclusive DreadBall miniature. Children under the age of 12 get in free. Tickets are now available to order through the Mantic online store. Get yours here!

Coming soon: A Brush with Death UK and Online painting competition. Look out for more details coming soon.

Kickstarter Shipping Update


We’re approaching the final weeks of DreadBall Xtreme shipping. We have two batches left:

- 400 Frenzy backers and everything that goes with that, which will be completed in a matter of days.

- After that, there are then 500 or so DreadBall Xtreme orders that also backed the Kings of War Kickstarter campaign – they’ll be the first to get their Kings of War packages as soon as the Rulebook comes in on the 6th August.

Just with every Kickstarter shipping operation, it’s taken a monumental effort to get all the product made and shipped to you, and it’s great to finally be getting it in your hands. It's also turning out to be perhaps the best and most accurately packed Kickstarter we've done, a real improvement on previous efforts which is great to see and hear.

Thanks for your patience whilst we’ve got this done!

This update covers, in the following order:

- DreadBall Xtreme 3rd Wave Shipping

Have a read and let us know what you think in the comments.



Dreadball Xtreme Wave 3

Pickers hard at work

Pledge Manager closing date: 27th July 2015 at Midnight BST.
This is your only chance to confirm your Kickstarter shipping address and update your pledge.

Last Chance for Lockdown

During the Kickstarter we launched a spectacular deal called Lockdown - it included all the rules and scenery you need to play, as well as several boosters so that you got practicularly all of the new miniatures from the Kickstarter.

It's an insane deal - $600 worth of kit for $215 - and one we'll never be able to offer again. We recommend upgrading your pledge to LOCKDOWN if you can because you'll never be able to again.

Industrial Scenery

Tooling is well underway with all of the plastic kits, and this week we had the first test shots of the Industrial Scenery through from our manufacturer.

Stewart got busy building some up which you can see below.

Dungeon Saga

Offered right at the end of the Kickstarter, we've got the first resin masters of the Vampire and Funny Bones in from our manufacturers - and Ravenna makes an appearance too.

We grabbed a quick shot before they are given to the painters...
