Perfect if you are looking for all sorts of monsters, mounts, undead, heroes, demons, creatures, critters and much much more.
Restocks from Mantic have recently arrived, including plenty of The Walking Dead Booster and Expansion restocks that ran out fast last time. Check out the entire Walking Dead range at the Online Store.
Restocks from Mantic have recently arrived, largely the army and mega army sets which had mostly been sold out. These are all fantastic value so check them out at the Kings of War section of the Online Store.
We have most of the popular movement trays back in stock, with some of these running out the door every time we get some in. But numbers are very limited so grab yours fast!
And lastly due to the encouraging efforts of others, The Gaming Guy has decided to do our bit to help the Kings of War community by way of a refer a friend Kings of War program. All you need to do is contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you are wanting to help grow the KOW scene, be it a friend, family member, son, nephew, your own gaming group whether already in existence or a desire to start one. We will then send you back your own Promotional code that you can give out to any friends and family. This code can be entered at checkout, giving great discounts on Kings of War products not just for those you are wishing to refer, but yourself as well. These discounts will take prices to fantastic levels reducing the entry point to KOW, including mega army sets to prices below $150. Later in the year we are also planning prizes for the most referred, so jump the gun and get a start, as referrals now will still count toward your tally.
New Items and stacks of restocks have recently arrived, first and foremost the new Empire of Dust range for Kings of War, as a current EOD player using proxies I am very tempted to over time transition my army to the Mantic range, these miniatures are some of the best Mantic have produced. Kings of War army sets are all mostly back in stock, including the ever popular Ogre and Abyssal Dwarf Mega armies, Ogre’s in particular are fantastic value with the ability to put the best part of 2,000 of the tabletop with some good multi basing.Apart from Kings, Deadzone has also had some new arrivals including Marauder and Reb Faction Starters. And finally from Army painter, most of the individual warpaints have come back in stock.
The Sydney Gaming Championships were run over the weekend and I managed to not only sponsor, but to attend and play in the Kings of War tournament. A big thankyou to Nick and all his helpers for making it such a great event. I personally had a blast and would strongly encourage anyone to give any event run by Nick a go, fantastic TO and the KOW scene around Sydney owes a lot to the time and effort Nick puts into running these events. For those looking for event dates, not just around Sydney but anywhere around Australia, both the Mantic section of Wargamerau forum or the Kings of War Australia Facebook group are a great place to start.
The Gaming Guy is proud to announce it's sponsorship of Kings of War tournament at ConVIC 2016 on the 9th & 10th of July, details for the tournament can be found at either the KOW ConVIC Facebook Page or website . Unfortunately I won't be able to make it there in person, but we wish everyone a good time and happy gaming, and hopefully we may see you next year.
Restocks include the Gamer's Edition Rulebook, Unchartered Empire's, Undead Mega Army and the OOP Goblin Army Set, this set has been replaced so these couple will likely be the last we sell. The new Goblin Army set and many more restocks are expected later this month.
We have most of the popular movement trays back in stock, in particular the regiment tray 100mm x 80mm, this sold out in 24 hours last time so have stocked up on a few more this time round. But numbers are still limited so grab yours fast!
Good luck to everyone heading to CanCon this weekend, and in particular to those participating in the first Kings of War tournament at CanCon. From what I've heard numbers have reached 50 which is absolutely fantastic. For those like myself that couldn't make it or weren't ready, there is always next year, when I'm sure it will be even bigger and better.
Despite the ever increasing popularity of Kings of War in general, Newcastle and the Hunter is as yet to have a single Kings of War event since the release of 2nd edition. With that in mind we thought we would attempt to do our bit and offer generous prize support for anyone wishing to run an event anytime in 2016 throughout Newcastle and the Hunter. In addition to prize support we will also assist promoting the event, and depending on where and our availability, assist in the preparation and running if required. If anyone is interested in running their own Kings of War tournament, no matter how small or casual it may be, please contact us at email@example.com to discuss what you have in mind.
The Gaming Guy is proud to announce it's sponsorship of Kings of War tournament at CanCon in January next year, details for the tournament can be found at the KOW Cancon Facebook Page. A big thankyou really needs to go to Andrew aka "Guns" for putting his hand up to organise the event, it would of been sad to see KOW not at CanCon with the growing support and fanbase. I'm confident KOW will be a huge success and will begin an ongoing partnership between KOW CanCon and the The Gaming Guy.
Our friends at Mantic are back at it again with a kickstarter for their futuristic mass sci-fi game Warpath, details can be found HERE. Considering how well the rules are written for their other game systems I would strongly encourage anyone to get involved, this will be a fantastic game and one I cannot wait for. But hurry it’s now in it’s final week.
Full Hardcopy Rulebook is now available from the Online Store. Copies are already flying out the door so grab yours fast. Other new items include the Forest Shamblers, Greater Obsidian Golem, Dwarf Sharpshooters and plenty more. And don't forget, if we run out of stock, send us a message via the Contact Us page of what you are after from Mantic and we'll order it in for you.
This http://www.communitywalk.com/mantic_clubs link has only just been brought to my attention and I thought it would be helpful to all those Kings of War, Deadzone, Mars Attacks and Dreadball players. Players and clubs can put a marker on the map with details of what they play and how they can be contacted. The default view is in the UK (where the map started), you can either zoom out and manually move the map to Australia or use the Add Marker feature and it will take you there. I would strongly encourage everyone to use it, would be great for players to more easily find one another.
The downloadable 2nd Edition Kings of War has been released, and can be found HERE. Very keen to give it a go and would strongly encourage anyone into or looking to get into Mass Fantasy war gaming to do so as well. The hardback full rulebook however we will have to wait for, hopefully in August it will become available, if you would like to reserve a copy just send me a message via the contact us page.
Mantic Games have opened the Deadzone Infestation kickstarter, more information available from the Mantic Blog http://manticblog.com/2015/03/22/deadzone-infestation-breakdown/
