Based in Swindon, UK, Mongoose Publishing was founded in 2001 and within 6 months became the UKs largest publisher of roleplaying games.
Mongoose has earned a reputation for producing quality licenced products to sit alongside their generic fantasy ranges and their first licenced book, The Judge Dredd roleplaying game, proved to be an instant hit. Further licenced products followed with roleplaying games based on Slaine, Babylon 5, Conan, Lone Wolf, Macho Women with Guns, Paranoia and Starship Troopers. Mongoose's newest licenced roleplaying game, Runequest, will be launched in the summer of 2006.
In 2004 Mongoose Publishing launched it's first miniatures game, Mighty Armies, and this was quickly followed by the award winning Babylon 5 Spaceship Combat game, A Call to Arms. Their first foray into plastic miniature games came in late 2004 with the innovative Gangs of Mega City One, a skirmish game based on the world of Judge Dredd. In the spring of 2005 Mongoose Publishing released the Starship Troopers miniatures game, a mass battle game in 28mm scale pitting humanity against a host of enemies in a battle for the species.
Mongoose Publishing's miniatures games and roleplaying games continue to provide gamers with fantastic worlds in which to immerse themselves, and the company has become a recognised force in the world of hobby games.
Collect armies of the Mobile Infantry, Arachnids and Skinnies (and that is just for starters - there are far more aliens out there in the galaxy!) and compete for the very survival of your species.
With a game system designed by Andy Chambers, plastic miniatures sculpted by Bob Naismith, and the background created by one of the most influential science fiction writers of the 20th Century, Starship Troopers has a pedigree that is hard to beat.
So come on, apes! Do you wanna live forever?!
A Call to Arms is the game of space combat in the universe of Babylon 5. Throughout the stationís turbulent history, armed fleets have enacted the harsher policies of their governments. Now you can play out these confrontations on the tabletop with entire fleets drawn from the Earth Alliance, Minbari Federation, Narn Regime, Centauri Republic or any one of the many other races that dwell in the galaxy.
From skirmishes involving single cruisers hunting down raiders to the clashing of allied fleets against the forces of ancient beings aeons old, A Call to Arms is your ticket to exciting battles that take place in the depths of space. From tiny forces of raiders to the massed battle of Corianna VI, involving the League of Non-Aligned Worlds, Minbari, Vorlons and Shadows, anything is possible!
Gangs of Mega-City One is a miniatures game that allows to you to take command of a street gang, filled with the roughest and toughest punks in your block. You will lead them in brawls and rumbles with the rival gangs of other players in an attempt to win turf, fame and hard cash. Each gang member is represented by one miniature on the table, customised and painted by yourself. As you play more and more games, your gang will become more powerful, recruiting new members, hiring specialists and buying superior weapons and equipment on the black market. The goal of each player in this game is to defeat the gangs of his opponents, through a mixture of skill and raw luck, building up his own gang in the process.
And don't ever, ever forget; he is the law.
