This is going to be a combined set of photos and game logs. I will try and alternate posts. I just received the KS ,on Thursday the 19th. So I started assembling the first 4 survivors andthe White Lion. My D&D group has 5 players, so I also assembled a 5th unarmored survivor from the kits. This is kingdom of death: a HUGE black box with an awesome "Botique Horror" board game and more than 35 minis to assemble and paint. Some are truly amazing figures.... The starting 4 figures were much easier to assemble than I feared. Its like the game starts you off in training mode. Even the lion was easy, but it did have a lot of cracks to fill. the figures have dynamic poses. Some are not, as amazing. The unarmored survivor below is very up straight, and the number of pieces is annoying. Arms: 4 pieces! for example. I cut a few extra from the sprue before I got the right combination of forearm pieces and both a right and left hand. I find it odd that the male starting survivors are left handed, and the women are right handed. (based on which hand holds the weapon) for as detailed as the starting survivors were, the back on this figure was poorly done, looking like a ken doll level of detail. I made him right handed, but unarmed. He is supposed to be beckoning a monster. to "Come at me, Bro"
This delightful model is just the right kind of gruesome for me. The reason I was willing to invest in Kingdom of Death even if the board game disappointed (which it did not, its a blast to play solo,) A Giant Antelope that looks like it has been partially flayed, with for no explainable reason tiny hands sticking out of its belly. Did I mention the entire belly is split open, to form a mouth? In the game they form a natural part of the ecology, eating plants (even in the middle of a fight if they can't see a threat ) they are hunted by humans and white lions, and sometimes go into heat. If your unlucky you can send people out to hunt an antelope, and get ambushed by a tougher White lion (this usually goes badly for the humans.) I have killed about 4 on my solo games, and have found them easier than lions. Anyway its done, I hope it doesn't drop flocking and small stones on my board game. but it is simply too nice not too base properly. (50mm base) unfinished picture taken earlier, but shows the belly mouth.
These guys were fun to paint and comparatively easy to assemble. the bearded guy gave me the most trouble and needed the most greenstuff. Then I started on the armor kits and young survivor... 3 pieces for and arm, 4 pieces for hair ? these guys were designed to be simple.
On the fourth year after the settlement was founded, A man approached, driven mad by the darkness. He carried the lanterns of those survivors he had slain. He lurked in the wilds waiting for the hunters to emerge. It did not matter if they proved strong, for he knew nothing of fear and would return again in the years to come. I'm not sure about the OSL on the base, maybe I should just go with a circle of light around him, as if he was a single point source... and the base needs another layer of black wash, too many white flecks. You want us to fight what????
