On the truck today. Gotta clear the table for a 1.5 session!

 

Kinda bummed there are no new box inserts for the upgrade packs.

Got my game! I'm a little surprised that FedEx made the delivery estimate but they did make it. I've only managed to organize the gear cards in the tray so far. My laptop conked out last night. Just would not boot up. Lost a fair bit of the day getting that straightened out. Had to completely restore the boot drive from an old backup. So many bookmarks lost. *cry*

 

Good news is, the game came in looking beautiful. No dents or scratches. Just pound after pound of darkness and torment, ready to be assembled! 〴◣_◢〵

Hmm? I know mine hasn't arrived yet but I could have sworn the 1.5 upgrade was supposed to include the new box insert.

I remember Poots saying during the campaign that the inserts would make shipping way more expensive as they would be very difficult to ship outside of the core game box.. He never committed to anything though. It's ben more than a little tricky to get him to comment on it. Version 1 owners might end up having to look for third party inserts.

I'm actually pretty upset about it, as these things go (I don't get too upset over luxury stuff). Hopefully there is an option to get one for the cost of shipping for each upgrade pack, not sure how many want it. If there is too big or too small demand, it might not happen.

Either way, I've got most of the core box gear cards sleeved now....

Are you using the KD sleeves for all the cards or another brand?

 

I haven't bought sleeves yet, but should.

I thought he said he was going to make the new insert available for the expansion folks in a later wave.  the new tray didnt ship with Core its coming in a later wave, because it wouldn't have been done in time for shipping.  based on everything I've read in the Lantern's light FB group

Yeah, I thought the upgraded insert was coming later.  Like with the Gambler's box.  And people would have the option to not receive it because it will add significantly to shipping costs.

I'm using the KDM sleeves. They nice. I think I need more. This is not fast, but at least I only have to do it once. I've not been a fan of sleeves, but I do like how it's easier to look through a deck now.

 

Dark Mediator confirmed the new trays will be made available at some point for the cost of shipping to backers interested.

 

Sleeved up and ready to play! Looking forward to it, I should paint up some survivors and the monsters...I just don't want to hack such lovely models and I'm way out of practice.

Also, there is a resource for upgrading from 1.0 to 1.5, but it's on the KD site, which would fall under the commerce rules of this forum. And it's not linked from their site, it's only shareable as a naked link. So I can't provide the link here. Yay.

 

Try appending wp/upgrade-to-1-5-edition/ to the URL of Death.

So many sprues. Such tiny parts. *twitch twitch*

 

Other than clippers and superglue, what other tools should one have to put together the miniatures?

I wouldn't use superglue for these. It'll work, but thin plastic cement will give a much stronger hold. For assembly, the only other tool you might need is a hobby knife to trim a connection here or there. Vibrant Lantern has a nice write up on assembly tools here. I use a different version of everything they recommend with no issues. Tamiya Extra Thin Cement is probably the most popular.

Thanks. I will have to read up on the article. Since I'm hitting the store, I can pick up a few items that I am missing.

I'd use plastic cement rather than superglue, it 'melts' the plastic together and gives you a stronger bond, apply to a tile similar the use a toothpick to transfer to the model if you don't get one with a brush applicator

 

I'd also have a decent hobby knife

 

Edit: and I've been ninja-ed while distracted by the tv

      Presenting Lady Fancy Hair, my second Survivor from the Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death, she's into whips and leather belts.
       
      Had this one sitting unfinished for a while (I got burnt out painting her fancy hair), but as I currently have a renewed interest in my Kingdom Death stuff, I thought I'd try and get her finished.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Story
      The fabric of reality is twisting anew, and Fate herself groans in agony. An adventurer has received an artifact both ancient and strange: the Deck of Many Things, which deals boon and woe with the capriciousness of a fey princess.
      But something else is contained herein.
      Another deck, alike in power, bearing spells and shames never before seen in this world or any other. I present you, wise man or fool, with the Deck of Many Fates.
       Two Decks. Infinite Fates.
      All dungeon masters, veteran and novice alike, have heard the legends of the Deck of Many Things. A treasured artifact which can infuse any campaign with danger, wonder, and delight. But look here: another deck has emerged from behind the veil of mystery. A deck equal in power, yet bursting with epic confrontations and sinister secrets. The Deck of Many Fates.
      Comprised of two decks totaling 49 jumbo-size tarot cards, The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates are the perfect accessory for your adventuring party. Our finest sages have also included a guide on the use of these cards, as irresponsible operation may lead to disfigurement, death, and worse. 
      The Deck of Many Things has been an RPG mainstay for over 40 years. It is an artifact of immense power and extreme chaos. Twenty-two cards each contain a strange, potent, and often game-changing effect. Perhaps you shall draw the fabled Flame card, and with it the enmity of a powerful nemesis. Or, just as likely, you may draw the Gem card, blessing you with immense wealth.
      Unlike its relative, the Deck of Many Fates is a relatively new artifact, unknown to most. It contains a staggering twenty-seven cards, each with a new power, curse, or opportunity. The Deck of Many Fates may be used on its own as an independent deck, or shuffled together with the Deck of Many Things to create a 49 card hybrid of magic, terror, and destiny.
      The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates includes 49 jumbo tarot cards, sized at 120mm x 70mm (~4.75" x 2.75") in two hand-illustrated tuck boxes, and helpful instructions for use and play.
        Shipping
      Hopefully this step is nice and easy. We've designed a lightweight, tightly-packed product that ships nicely. Domestic (USA) orders ship free, and all International Orders pay a flat $5.
      Campaign Updates & Stretch Goals
      This campaign will have no stretch goals; what you see is what you get. We'll be using the updates to reveal more cards from our mysterious, proprietary Deck of Many Fates.
      Risks and challenges
      Common risks for cards items and RPG accessories typically include product and fulfillment issues. We're partnering with an experienced supplier we've worked with on several major projects like Wolves of Mercia, Derby Day Horse Racing, Michigan Rummy, and Faerie Chess. We're confident in their ability to produce and deliver, as we've seen it for ourselves dozens of times!
       
       
      EDIT: I am in. $15 for 2 Decks, 49 Tarot sized cards with free shipping to US. Seems like a good deal and a small risk.

      Didn't see a topic for this yet.
      2 Limited edition miniatures in 80mm scale. 'Lady Godiva' and 'The Mirror', both based on classical paintings.
      Older miniatures in the series can be bought as an add-on. Comments on previous kickstarters are pretty positive, apparently the casts are good, they're well packaged and sent out on time.

      Nocturna is getting on the new paint band wagon. These seem to be a different line than their already existing paints collaborated with Vallejo. Plus some new figures. Wooo.
