Hellboy: The Board Game by Mantic Games will be heading back to Kickstarter soon, This new Kickstarter campaign is going to include lots of new bosses, agents, cases and new minions to add to your already existing game. Providing new opportunities and new ways to play the already successful base game.

Included in a new, confirmed expansion; Pandemonium, there are some new beautiful and beastly baddies that Mantic has begun to preview. And my oh my, they are not the size of your average miniature!

Hammerhead Pre-Production Miniature // Hellboy: The Board Game

Meet Hammerhead, the absolute unit of a Frog-Monster. Boasting the size of a boat and appearing to be a little less on the friendly side! Mantic has described the character as completely savage, describing Hammerhead's effect in play:

"These enormous creatures are as devastating as you’d hope. They’re not smart, and they’re not subtle, but they will absolutely wreck your day. Whenever you take damage from one of these beasts, you’ll roll a black die and take that much extra. They will destroy you if you don’t keep your distance and play it smart."

Varvara // Hellboy: The Board Game

Another interesting boss confirmed to be joining the havoc is Varvara. A creepy, demonic little girl ready to fuel your nightmares. This twisted little cherub is completely unique as an enemy. Her unique boss behaviour deck allows her to act, unlike any other enemy in the game. She has no need to attack agents as she has a merry band of minions to mind control and do it for her:

"Worse, agents will struggle to fight her directly. Something in them keeps screaming that it’s just a little girl, and it’s tough to really let loose when that’s going on. That’s a problem, because she’s really not a little girl, and she can prey on that hesitation by viciously draining agents who attack her but fail of their life force. Defeating her is not a challenge to be taken lightly."

These two big bads are only two of the frights that are joining Mantic Games' Kickstarter for Hellboy The Board Game, and I am really looking forward to seeing what other horrors are joining the fray in the Pandemonium Expansion. 

Are you looking forward to this Kickstarter?
