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.

      Chibis are super deformed, yet adorable characters that have lately have made a splash in the boardgaming and miniature community with games such as Super Dungeon Explore, Arcadia Quest, Ninja All-Stars and many others. They're also featured in collectible figurines and in other geeky paraphernalia.
      This is the EIGHTH Chibi KickStarter run by Impact! Miniatures and Impact! is partnering with Chibi Capsule and Märchen to bring you some incredible, new Magical Girl chibi miniatures along with monsters for them to combat!
      The funding goal will pay for the sculpting & 3-D printing of the miniatures. And for some of them: The metal masters and resin production molds needed to create mass production of the miniatures.
      The Miniatures  
      ALL miniatures in this KickStarter are provided unpainted. Unless otherwise stated after the name of the miniature, all miniatures offered with this KickStarter will be high quality 3-D prints done on a top end 25 to 50 micron printer (you should not see print lines after priming and paint).   As stretch goals are reached we will unlock additional sculpts.  Stretch Goal may also pay for metal mastering and rubber molds for mass production spincast resin models which will allow the project to offer some of the Magical Girls at lower costs to our backers.  The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible).  
      You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing below.
      Meet the girls!

      About
      Over a year ago we started looking at beginning a High-Seas Adventure D&D campaign. However, we wanted to kick it up a notch (or five).
       
      So, we began looking for a great set of 3d Dungeon tiles to help bring the adventures to life for our players. We wanted something that was customizable, beautiful to look at, and was playable terrain. We also didn't want to spend $100 per ship. We realized that customizable didn’t really exist- we had to *choose* if we wanted beauty, or a slim amount of customization. Not to mention that the costs were extreme per ship.. We couldn’t put together a fleet of different ships if we wanted to without breaking the bank.
      Being an Indy designer- Chris decided to start working on something better, and finally- after seeing friends and family reactions to the initial prototype- ShipWorks began becoming a reality.
      Shipworks is modular. What this means is that from the hull to the masts and everywhere in between- you have the freedom to design and print the sailing ship that you want. Not just another generic template, but your minds eye brought to life.
      The ships seen table time ;-)  
      Details and customization is also inside.. ShipWorks is also fully usable terrain- to scale with miniatures common to some of the oldest and greatest table top roleplaying games. Your miniatures can traverse the rigging shrouds and masts, climb ladders and stairs, and explore above or even below decks.
       
      Captain checking the rigging as a swab runs up to the wheel  
      Even our yard-arms are functional terrain- 25mm miniatures bases slide in with ease, and stay there- even when turned upside down!
       
      Upside down can be right side up- depending on perspective.  
      With ShipWorks you get to choose:
      The length of your ship.
      Adjust the width of the ship.
      Your prows appearance, and even the figurehead that adorns it!
      Add more (or less) masts and their length! No messy shaping of wood dowels (unless you’re into that). Add a crows nest or viewing platform.
      A host of customizations to change your hull. From the number of weapons ports to fight off enemies, to creature comforts like windows for passenger cabins. Even sleek flat hull panels for showing off your more merchant elite!
      How you want your sails, from classic square to sharp looking lateen triangles.  If you change your mind- change them on the fly! 
      Your stern-castle and fore-castle (or have neither Captain!)

      Part of their limited edition Legacy Vault series like their previous Easter Troll KS..  Halloween minis and Red Riding Hood.. my wallet just ran and hid..
       
       
      About this project
       CAMPAIGN WILL START 24 OCTOBER 22:00 CET
        
      Starting from Easter 2017, we decided to begin creating miniatures dedicated to major holidays.
      These limited edition items will delight enthusiasts, collectors and artists alike, and the models may even end up on board games if the players can use their imagination well enough!
      Our concept is to bring out one or more dedicated models each year, at regular intervals, for a limited period of time and in limited quantities. After the regular sales period ends, models will enter our Legacy Vault, which will remain closed until the next event: once it's closed for good, the models inside will not be sold anymore.
      But what is the Legacy Vault and how does it work?
      Legacy Miniatures are fairly rare models that aren't normally available for purchase in our store. You can sometimes find them in on sale during special events and always for a very short time. The Legacy Vault is the place where Legacy Miniatures are kept after the sales period ends. Inside this Vault you will find all limited models made in past events. Be warned, the Vault may not reopen for future sales, so if you see a piece that you like and are on the fence, you'd better not risk lossing it for good, and grab it quickly. There's no guarantee it will be available again next year, or the one after that! A certificate will also be issued with each model, authenticating its number and release of issue.
      A Certificate will come with every limited model that you buy from this campaign.
      Models are in 32mm scale. However, bear in mind that this does not mean that they will measure 32 mm from head to toe, but rather that they will have the proportions of this scale.
      Models will be made in resin and/or metal, depending on the model. Each model will come with a generic base, but we are sure that the experts among you will be able to create a small diorama for these limited editions.
      FREE shipping to Europe, USA, Canada

      If they’re unlocked, all these models will be FREE for any pledge level from Tier 1 upwards.

      If you want, you can add any number of these as Add-Ons to your pledge: just increase your PLEDGE TOTAL by the reward's corresponding amount, and you’re done. You will then confirm your choice with a post-campaign Pledge Manager system. Thank you!

       This model will join in the Legacy Vault. This mean that will be available  to purchase only during this campaign and particular events
