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.

      Main Game ($80)

       
      Expansion Box ($40, so $120 total)

       
      We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Singapore (Singaporean backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
      USA: $10-$20 to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.  CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.  LATIN AMERICA: $70-$80 to most countries.  ASIA: $10 to China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. $35 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia). OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.  AFRICA: $95 to most countries.  EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.   • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.   • $50 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.   • $70-$80 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.  • $90 to Belarus. Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.
      *WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.
      Basically a Tweaked version of Arcadia Quest designed to run faster and be easier to set up, with Sci-Fi-ification

      Second time tackling this one (I like it that much!), I think I prefer my newer, colourful version but I still struggled to do a decent job on his cloud cape, I think it needs more time and effort put into it than I have the patience for.
       
        As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      About
      The Edge: Dawnfall is new miniature Board Game by Awaken Realms for 1-4 players. It was created by Michał Oracz (man behind 13 years of Neuroshima Hex and recent hit Cry Havoc) and it brings next level of competitive gameplay to the table. Fresh, exciting, pure and rewarding.
      It’s a living organism with a very passionate community. It’s thousands of hours of development, hundreds of unique art pieces, over hundreds of pages of rich and unique campaigns, 7 extremely asymmetric and unique factions and finally and most importantly a fast, dynamic and very exciting skirmish game with tons of cinematic skills and turn the tide moments.
      This is a second Edge the Boadgame Kicstarter, a reprint of our naive 2016 kickstarter promise of an unreasonably high amount of content that not only we still managed to reach, but even overdeliver. It’s our biggest and most ambitious project yet, it’s our favorite child, our blood tears and sweat. It’s a Beast!

      Remember this thread?
       
      You know, the Yedharo/GT project that was cancelled and they said they'd reluanch it?
       
      Well they relaunched it.
       
      There's a lot less units this time and far more characters (some of whom appear to have been inspired by the Atlantis Dwarfs or are attempting to copy their success but with a Yedharo/GT spin on it).
       
      I might jump in for a small handful of character models but I won't go in big on this one. Then again why would dwarfs go big? They're small. It's one of their defining features :).
       
      'cause Atlantis did dwarven women with shaved sides and some goat riders......
       

       
      He's baaaaack!
       

       
      She got off the goat
       

       
      Hammer Man is back again
       

       
      Apparently she's really "Busty"
       

       
      At least the leaping Trollslayer is back again :)
       

       
      Mr Ugly Sword is back again (don't know why).
       

       
      I like this new hammer man
       

       
      The ugly rectangular shield unit with hammers is back (the only returning unit).
      They really should've fixed those shields and the "3rd edition/Dragonpunk helmets".
       

       
      The Bloodbowl team is back as well (obviously).
