I decided to do a write up of this game after my first two games played.  I also watched a third.  The most amazing thing is they occurred one after another in a space of five hours.  This is a new game to my group.  We backed it on Kickstarter.  

We went whole hog, full bore, so to speak.  Not content to just kill the other player we decided to play scenarios as the designers intended.  The armies used were Marauders (Orc like race), Galactic Co-Prosperity Sphere (Normal Human Soldiers), and Forge Fathers (Dwarves).  I was maneuvered into playing Forge Fathers.  Not a choice I would have normally made.  After my two games I love the stunty little bastids’.  We played at 1250 point suggested level.

I caught up with Ronnie Renton of Mantic Games while at Adepticon.  We chatted about, Kings of War, Dreadball, Dungeon Saga, Warpath, and the possibility of an RPG.  I always have a good time with Ronnie.

Maybe I should pitch the RPG and then move across the sea.

Goblin Spearmen (10)

These Goblins ordinarily carry spears and shields though these items are of little use in the close tunnels of overrun Dwarf citadels where many goblins make their home, and a close second favorite is a curved knife, preferably wielded behind the backs of their enemies. 10 x Metal Goblin Spearmen with command 10 x Plastic Mantic Bases

This is a 2 player, scenario based board game, with one player taking control of the Dwarfs, while the other commands the Undead. There are 6 scenarios to play through, each build upon each other, culminating in a huge, desperate battle which will ultimately decide who controls the King’s Hold.


We have not played this yet.  I would love to get my hands on a copy and do a review for all of you, because I have only heard good things about Dwarf King’s Hold.   That is not something that can,t be said very often.  Here is a link to the product information on Mantic Games Website Dwarf Kings Hold.
