The Adventurers are Coming!

Mantica Adventurers and Iron Crow Dwarfs  

If you have a brave heart and fancy a more noble reason to be exploring the swamp of Miremarsh, then these two expansions are for you!  

A new way to play!  

Each of these sets brings in a new set of 4 miniatures to use instead of the 12 Bog Goblins. When we thought of the essence of Miremarsh – basically your goblins die a bunch of times while opening the path towards your final quest – there was little room as it stands to try your luck with more heroical characters – who wants to see their hero dying!  

With this guest adventurers packs, you get your chance at committing to a hero and lead him or her through the marsh. To do so, some exclusive components needed to be added too, alongside the miniature. The engine of the game is largely the same, but a player gets just one character to use and care for. If he or she ‘dies’, the player can spend a healing potion to continue the journey. Some penalties may apply for the wounded! Each character receives three potion tokens to use and the guest adventurers set offers special locations for the characters to rest/visit and new pets and gear to fully flavour them!  

And of course, it makes no sense for these stout heroes to set out from the Goblin Warren or to attempt one of those vile, evil quests, so we’ve replaced all of those too. The new quests will undo some of the mischief wrought by those pesky Bog Goblins.  

Mantica Adventurers

These four heroes are guest sculpts from the brilliant Dungeon Saga by Mantic Games. These are the existing plastic models to which we‘ve added: :  

  • Character cards for Madriga the Elf Ranger, Danor the Wizard, Rordin the Dwarf and Orlaf the Barbarian.  
  • Punchboard with 12 healing potions.  
  • 5 unique Quest tiles including Rescue the Lord, Defend the Camp and Save the Baby.
  • 1 Inn tile to replace the Warren – where else would an adventure start?  
  • 6 Pets including the War Horse, Hunting Hound, Trained Falcon and Cat Familiar.

Iron Crow Dwarfs  

These four Dwarfs are guest sculpts from the amazing Durgin’s Forge.  

To the 4 resin models we’ve added:  

  • Character cards Thorgar the Disciple, Eldrann the Explorer, Korrum the Hunter and Boshik the Sentinel.  
  • Punchboard with 12 healing potions.  
  • 5 unique Quest tiles including Burn the Warren, Face the Ikari and Recover the Hammer.  
  • 1 Dwarf Tavern tile to replace the Warren  
  • 6 Pets including the Loyal Bulldog, Watchful Crow and the Mechanical Familiar. All these refer back to other models from the Iron Crows range!

Dwarf Assembly Required 

Unlike the Mantica Adventurers and the models in the core game which are all PVC plastic, the Iron Crow Dwarfs are resin-cast models. Resin is cast by hand in a very traditional way that allows finer detail than that of the PVC production. This is ideal for those who like to paint their models.

These models require assembly. Each model consists of around 3 to 5 pieces plus a base, so you’ll need superglue and some hobby clippers or a craft knife. 

How can I get it? 

These two sets are Additional Extra purchases. This doesn’t change your pledge level, you just add the appropriate amount on to your total. Then after the campaign has finished we’ll ask you to specify which extras you wanted.

      The real question is.... what about a vs mode where two human/dwarf players fight 2-3 goblin players, each with their normal mechanics? That is, adventurers have healing potions, and goblins... crunch all you want, we'll make more. And of course, the rest of the swamp is still there trying to kill everyone :)

      any chance to get the potions to play this way with the core box?

      @Mike Sorensen - We know, stretch goals are there!

      You know I think your campaign would be a lot more successful if you followed the same strategy for funding as the creators of eldorado or dinosaurisland. Keep adding extra game pieces, organizers, addons. Doing it in a way that the backer doesn’t spend more money as we are ultimately gambling on your product. you will however see the revenue in quantity of backers as everyone loves all the extras pieces at no charge.

      My two cents

      3D fish... looks amazing. Really exited. For that.

      @Ben Ellerington Apologies, slip of the finger. Matt and Sam - our Game Designers!! Sorry about that!

      "Writers" is an odd word choice - the word "designer" is more common in the parlance of board game design. It seems oddly incongruous and potentially denigrating.

      Great Update. I really like those dwarfs. And I am excited about the 3D tokens! Wonderful!
