Kingdom Death: Monster 2

Recommended Posts

I grabbed the cards and the new rulebook then ended up being charged almost as much again for post & packing. The rulebook's a hardback so that almost seems reasonable. Americans always undercharge for the actual items and overcharged for post & packing. Companies from other countries tend to handle things differently.

I held off on the rulebook. It sounds like the card pack might come with stickers for the current book. It is also speculated that there will be more updates before Wave 4 is all shipped.

This business model drives me a little nuts. Creating scarcity for limited edition resins, I get. But creating scarcity for expansions that have been out for years and are in high demand, or for white box hard plastic figures, seems crazy. Yeah, covid hasn’t helped this year, but it has been a problem long before that. I have wanted a Percival since I first discovered KDM, and it appeared for this sale (in unlimited hard plastic) only to watch it sell out within two minutes. Ugh. 

 

I do appreciate the fact that he gives newcomers a chance to get in on upcoming content every year, although the fact it is still upcoming is a whole different issue.

Does anyone know if I can just wait and have them merge my wave three part one shipping with a later part? 

 

I don't want to pay the same amount for shipping as for the single item I have in part one.

 

Thanks for your thoughts.

 

Got my answer from the Dark Moderator: No.  Needs to ship now.

I picked up the card pack, glad I got it before it sold out.

I have not intention of adding anything else to wave 4. 

but I am excited by the promise of the GC shipping soon.  it looks like it is a very similar box size to the original game. 

 

I haven't played the game in a year or so,  but I have every intention of painting more of the wonderful minis. 

Dragon King 

Dragon Tyrant 

Dung Beetle Knight 

Sunstalker pinup

 

still are waiting their turns.  

Nightmayer Ram (one of my favs)  jumped the Que this year, when I bought just the figure in one of the sales.

Which I'd recommend doing even if they said yes. Their inventory system is not something that would withstand people having anything on hold for that long. You'd likely never received any items left on hold.

I was looking at the pledge helper listed on the campaign page, the current savings of my BF Gambler's Lantern pledge off estimated retail (which always goes up once it hits actual retail, so I expect this number to improve a bit more) is 71%. I knew it was going to be a good deal, after the first KS. I should've estimated about that much, since I think the first KS edition was $100 for the box...

 

Edited to add: gah, can only buy 1 pack of the 1.6 upgrade cards. I have 2 copies of the game :(

this has been changed to 2 (and may be going to 3) if you go through your backerkit  (no sure about via he store)

Agreed.  I certainly don't fault the Pootsian fulfillment model.  It's a logistical marvel. 

 

It also encouraged me to pick up the 1.6 card pack at cost.  So hey.

I will upgrade to whatever upgrade is there when we get all of wave 4... if i live that long ::D:

 

I made it though this year without any KDM purchases and i dont think that will change.  the only thing i have from this wave IS the gambler chest and I really would have preferred he finished that first.

Just the card pack. Haven't even separated the parts from their sprues in the core set. That GC is going to have a *lot* of content.

 

I'm wondering how many people who want these models actually paint them. You can easily spend week, month, or however long to paint one of them...!

      Presenting Octoberfest Aya, a pair of seasonal themed minis from Kingdom Death. Like all their recent holiday releases you get a large scale pin-up version, and a smaller, not quite so scantily dressed, gaming one.
       
      There's a few issues (painting beer is hard!) and they're both a bit rougher looking in hand, but I'm really happy with them, particularly Big Aya as I don't paint many large scale minis.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.
