Kingdom Death: Monster 2

Recommended Posts

I purchased it on a Black Friday as well. Am I the only one that thought the Armor kits were super complex and rage quit putting them together and sold off everything but the starting heroes and monsters and game board.... ? Everything was beautiful, but 3 part head? 3 part arm, forearm and weapon. I will look at the kickstarter for any lower count piece plastic or resin pieces... but Overall this was just beyond my skill level...

For me, the quality of the plastic and ability to melt the pieces together with model glue offsets the complexity of assembly. I'm still a fan of getting to the painty part asap, but assembling the plastic models is in my opinion the least painful prep process of any material. I actually enjoy it, rather than it being a necessary evil.

I'm hoping for the no minis version of the game being available.

 

I'm seeing some eBay sellers sell the game without the miniatures, so you might have luck that way. Or, of course, you can pick up a copy and sell off the mini's.

 

BTW, Thanks for the KS announcements! My wallet still hates you, though. :D

EDIT: "An upgrade pack with the rulebook and updated cards will be available for existing fans."  from the update email.  Helps to read with glasses on and on computer instead of blurry-eyed on my phone... 

 

I hope there's a pledge level for those of us who got the game the first time 'round. I recall there being mention of such a level (basically one that gets the extra/new stuff from the second campaign but not the new core box) but don't know if they're going to follow through on it.

 

 

 

You're probably remembering it from the first post of this thread. :P

 

 

Nope. I'm remembering it from one of the Kingdom Death newsletter emails about 2 or 3 months ago :p.

I don't know but I'm still waiting for that Paladin.

I've tried to commission Thomas David for some sculpting for my own project for a few years now, and he tells me he is full-time employed by another company and cannot do any other commissions. I'd assume that this other company is KD, and if it is so, then David has been employed by them for a long time, which would mean that they surely will have a lot of hidden sculpts available.

I gave up on the armour kits because I couldn't work out how to pose them like normal people, mine always ended up very mannequin-like. Hence my desire for monopose versions.

So recent events have put a damper on my enthusiasm for this KS, and any other using Chinese manufacturing. Things are likely to get expensive over the next few years and I don't see Poots shelling out that kind of money this time around.

I haven't tried them yet, but even the pictures on the KDM stores show them in quite 'stiff' poses (some kits are worse than others), so i have little hope for what I can do with them

Can you be more detailed or would that be in violation of forum rules?  I'm interested knowing more of what you mean.

I'm just guessing that he is refering to the US presidential election. But that wouldn't really explain the "any other" using Chinese manufacturing. So might be wrong. :)

I don't know what Cash is referring to in his post either but let's be careful not to turn this thread into a political discussion or posts will be removed.

Could be the repeatedly late shipments from China, too, has soured on any promise of goods from them. I just had a KS for treasure chests that were delivered from China to the KS creator with so many issues. Misbuilt, mispainted, and some growing black mold. It is not a good situation for anyone involved. And I believe a lot of KSs are having Chinese supply issues as well. Then top up the problems with Han Jin, the Korean shipping company, and it gets really frustrating.

      Started a new campaign and wanted to add in a few of the expansion monsters, namely the gorm, the flower knight and possibly the dungbeetle knight.  Well see how it goes but the first up was the gorm.  Just getting started on it but I wanted thoughts on its direction and if someone has thoughts on increasing the creepy factor.  I have noticed that the expansion monsters are a tad further down the rabbit hole than the main game.
       
      The classic gorm is all black but I thought it lacked a certain punch so I changes the head using a baby picture I found and I'm working on blending it back to a greenish blue body.  Let me know if anyone has thoughts on what might increase its shock value.  
       
      I'll add more pictures if people are interested as I go

      From the Kickstarter page:
      The Basius Max collection is a DOUBLE SIDED series of large solid purple resin pads, full of jaw-dropping hand-sculpted negatively recessed texture
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/984996675/basius-max?ref=friends_launched
       

      Basius stamps are one of the most talked about hobby tools that I've never tried, mainly because they never seem to make it to retail.  This time I'm not letting frugality get in the way of awesome bases!

      This is a second edition of a game that had some kickstarter success last year.  The project ends in about a week.  A solo game, for those long, lonely nights at sea.
       
      No miniatures, although the price tag is pleasantly miniature in comparison with the bloated behemoths rampaging their way across kickstarter at the moment, devouring available funds.  I know nothing about this game except that the box undeniably very excellent and the custom dice look neat-o.
       
      Cheers.

      About
      Welcome to the world of Nemesis! This new board game, designed by Adam Kwapiński, is the result of a collaboration between Awaken Realms (creators of This War of Mine: TBG, The Edge: Dawnfall and Lords of Hellas) and Rebel (creators of Drako, Dream Home and K2) .It's a 1-5 players semi-cooperative Sci-Fi horror where you and your friends try to survive while attempting to fulfill your secret objectives that may sometimes collide. It will also enable full co-op as well as solo play experience. 
      Nemesis offers one-of-a-kind gameplay, that you currently won't find anywhere else in the board game world. It has been in professional development for over three years, so it already plays very well, provides good balance and contains a multitude of interesting mechanics, as proven by the prototype reviews below. 

      If you like Sci-Fi survival settings and ships swarming with alien life forms, you will love it - and if that genre was never on your radar, this game is likely to change your mind! 
       
       *We will be lagging a little bit with the Stretch Goals presentation due to too high funding speed! 
       
       
       
       *Out of all reviews / movies two were paid: Cardboard Rhino (rules presentation / tutorial how to play that took a lot of time to make!) and Man vs Meeple (which is a preview showing the game in detail). All other videos were not paid.
