A miniatures board game based on Hellboy—the comic, mercifully, not the movies—has launched on Kickstarter, and is already 6x over its funding target.

Designed for 1-4 players, you take control of a BPRD agent and “explore gothic locations, hunt down clues, discover artefacts, fight horrific creatures and face off against terrifying bosses”.

The terrain is lifted straight from the comics, and the game ships with 108 plastic miniatures, including a whole bunch of monsters and Nazis.

Having asked for $140,000, the game is at $1 million with 28 days left on its Kickstarter.

Looks sweet, but why the dig at the movies? They were surprisingly decent and had a great feel. Better than lots of other attempts at comic-to-screen attempts.
