HO! HO! HO! HOLIDAY HELLBOY IS ON HIS WAY
EXCLUSIVE, HANDMADE RESIN GAMING PIECE AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY
Mantic Games is pleased to announce a special, limited edition miniature to accompany its upcoming Hellboy board game. Working once again with Dark Horse Comics and visionary creator Mike Mignola, Holiday Hellboy is a handmade, high quality resin gaming piece based around an iconic piece of festive artwork drawn by Mike Mignola.
This amazing celebratory piece will only be available to order now until the end of December from participating Mantic stockists and direct from Mantic Games at www.manticgames.com. After being designed by a digital sculptor, each Holiday Hellboy will be painstakingly handcrafted by our resin team here at Mantic HQ in Nottingham, UK.
“Following the huge success of the Hellboy: The Board Game Kickstarter earlier this year, we really wanted to celebrate with something cool and unique,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic Games, CEO. “When we came across this piece of amazing artwork, we just knew we had to get it sculpted and made. Making it available in superb quality resin will capture the wonderful quality of Mike Mignola’s artwork perfectly.”
Measuring approximately 7cm tall, Holiday Hellboy comes unpainted and requires assembly, but will most definitely make a fantastic festive-themed gift for any Hellboy fan. The set also comes with an exclusive B.P.R.D. Agent card for use in Hellboy: The Board Game.
Due for release in 2019, Hellboy: The Board Game is a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic B.R.P.D. members – Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman and Johann Kraus – before exploring gothic locations, uncovering ancient artifacts and battling one of Hellboy’s most notorious foes, Rasputin!
