Mantic May Open Day


The Mantic Open Day is back!

Based at our Nottingham UK HQ on the 16th May we will open the doors to all our Mantic fans for an epic day of gaming and fun!

The open day will be rammed full of awesome demo games of every Mantic system including the beta version of Kings of War 2. As always you’ll get the opportunity to see behind the scenes and even enjoy one of Ronnie’s famous seminars! 

Not only that, but the Mantic team will be there to answer all your questions. Sit down and have a chat with the Mantic studio painter to see how he achieves all the great paint schemes you see in our photography or have a chat with the studio manager about how we come up with the concept of everything we create.

So what exactly do we have going on for DreadBall Xtreme?

We will have DreadBall Xtreme set up for demo if you have still not had the chance to get your head around the rules yet as well as a DreadBall Original tournament, which is a great excuse to crack out the DreadBall teams you got with the Kickstarter and join in the fun. Tickets are available here.

If you have picked up any of Mantics games but aren’t too sure how to play them, the open day is a great way to take advantage of our experts, the Pathfinders, who will give you a mind blowing intro game and get you fully up to speed so that you can play your own games at home or at your local club. 

Tickets to the Open Day are only £4.99 per person, or pick up a family/group ticket for 4 people at £14.99. We have parking onsite and you will even get the legendary Mantic open day goodie bag worth more than the price of your ticket completely free of charge!

Tickets are available on our website now, so make sure you grab yours today!

Plague Outbreak!


Happy Easter everyone!

We’re sorry it has been so long since the last update, and for not keeping Mission Control more regularly up to date – we hope that you are enjoying playing DreadBall Xtreme and painting your Season 4 teams.

This update is primarily to do with the miniatures, which are all now in our warehouse except the Plague and the Mechanites. These were the last tool to be completed are about to leave the manufacturer. With them on the water, it means that we’ve completed the figures side of things!

As we’re sure you’re aware, the Plague and Mechanics are the only teams that don’t come preassembled – instead there are a whole bunch of bits with which you can choose to customize your figures.

Here is our sample studio Plague team:

New! Kovossian Mutants Team

These are the horrific plague-hybrids of the Kossovian Mutants. The basic players are relatively simple to build, with each torso/legs parts being identifiable as being a Jack, Guard or Striker. There are strange biological Dreadball glove set into arms, as well as a few Judwan arms for the strikers.

After building the basic set ups for your players, you will be able to add extra details and mutations onto your players. This kit is jam-packed with extra components such as tails, vestigial wings, and heads from several different alien races. You can combine parts together to build a Zz’or-esque Guard, or randomly combine components for a Namless/Yndij/Human/Grogan player!

What do you think of these? Which teams of the next wave are you looking forward to?

We’ll be bringing plenty more shots and images out for all of the new miniatures as we gear up for our third shipment in late May. We will have had all of the digital content out well before then, and we will get DreadBall Xtreme Mission Control up to date in the next week as well.

Thanks for your support, and your patience.

Season 4 coming soon...


Happy 2015 everyone!

Hot on the heels of the DreadBall Xtreme Boxed Game shipped before Christmas, Season 4 is on it's way to you very shortly.

DreadBall Xtreme

Before Christmas we shipped out the special Kickstarter-only print run of the DreadBall Xtreme boxed game.

DreadBall Xtreme hits retailer shelves in March, meaning you’ve got the game, especially printed just for you, three months early.

We spent a lot of time and money to ensure that we got this out before Christmas, so we really hope that you enjoyed opening and playing with it.

We think it has some of our best visuals and production values yet, but what we really want to know is what do you think about it? Let’s see your paint jobs, let’s hear about your games – what do you think about DreadBall Xtreme? Let us know in the comments and on Facebook!

New Season, Fresh Blood

DreadBall Season 4 begins shipping in two weeks to Kickstarter backers.

The January shipment will also contain the Original DreadBall items.

Watch out for a future update for more details!
