The boy chose the Axe! He truly is an Axermen!
1.5 Core Game Rulebook artwork will be updated to replace the sword with an axe.

The Axermen Family is added to the Gambler's Chest!

 And for my selected TwithGameNight Reward....

      I can only hope we get 100% spellcheck this time around, in the finished products.
      Thats all I wish for out of this, Poots.

      Happy x mas poots and all

      I honestly didn't expect a whole expansion in the gambler's chest, at least as a twitch reward. This is an awesome addition!

      Reminds me of putting together the Demi-Lich in Baldur's Gate II. Had to be cheesy and set a bunch of traps on top of his spawn location in advance to kill him, but I don't think Atnas will be that easy...

    5. Samael on

      Thanks for the extra Killy nemesis, just what kingdom death needed

      Now go back to your holiday and teach your boy how to swing an axe into a white lion's skull

      @PsychoticStorm I'm hoping that the final version won't actually be wearing Santa clothes or anything. But I *LOVE* the idea for this fight.

      Merry Christmas to Adam and all the Poots! I LOVE this update! The whole axe family looks amazing! The dad is a departure from most of the KD men, sort of a biker Viking kinda thing, and it works really well. I really like that the mom has mommy hips, and it's neat that the kid has a bit of baby fat. They look like they're from a really successful settlement.

      Looking forward to fighting (and loosing against) Atnas! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

      Wow! That twitch reward is bonkers!

      The Family looks great, the Antas has be conflicted, while I have confidence Adam will make sure it will fit in the universe, the image feels quite iconic and out of place.

      The pitch of the monster though is amazing, crafting your own nemesis and then fighting it is design gold and would be nice to see the same concept been expanded.

      i think we should work that guy out? right?

      @Todd Ferrullo the wonderful thing about models and glue is you can put them on whatever base you want.

    12. Drew on

      Holy crap. Is that guy just in the Gambler's Chest now?

    13. Sean Martin on

      Hi Poots & Co.,
      I just wanted to say that I love this update. I'm really stoked that you chose to do both a model and additional game content despite how much extra work it will be for you guys. I can't wait to see what ends up coming with this,
      Merry Christmas!

    14. Deadication on

      Holy crap, that is remarkably close to my hope for the Krampus nemesis! Well done, Adam!! Merry Christmas everyone! :)

    15. Felipe Silveira Bulhões on

      lol, now we will see the gambler's chest only in 2019/2020 lol

    16. Berbs42 on

      @Kingdom Death - YES!!!
      Merry Pootsmas!!
      The Krampoots hath arrived!!!
      Kingdom Deathmas is here in spades!!
      And our Glutonous Holiday Feast has already begun!!
      WE <3 POOTS!!!

    17. Todd Ferrullo on

      Sadly, I expected this to be chosen for the Twitch rewards even though either of the other two were much better and overall more useful gameplay elements. I assume that the Axerman family is the X-Mas bonus chest reward. I do hope that they each come on their own base rather than another non gameplay scenic figure like Father and Son (or possibly even Anna the Gourmet Hunter)

    18. Kevin "vCJD" on

      Hoppy Bah Humbugble, and a Very Merry Deathmas to Poots's, one and all.
      Atnas is going to be nasty....

      Well, for all of those who where wondering if the GC was really whorth it over 2 regular expension, i think this settle's it :)

      Poots and crew,

      If you read this,

      I love you,


      Merry Christmas from Tucson

      Im already damning the day this was voted as a possible reward, dont worry. Could've been something way more cool and less goofy.

    26. japester

      As a KD:M noob, can someone explain this to me?
      "The boy chose the Axe! He truly is an Axermen!
      1.5 Core Game Rulebook artwork will be updated to replace the sword with an axe."
      The boy? And is there an iconic piece of sword art in the old rulebook?

      Atnas sounds like a great bonus. If he's unwinnable, maybe we'll house rule that some of his nastier reaction cards can be ignored if the target lulls him into a stupor with a Christmas carol. LOL.

    27. Tom D.B. on

      Happy holidays to all.
      Love the family and new nemesis!

      The Axe Family'S woman looks terrible.

      Awesome update Poots. Love the family and love the twisted idea to intro the child water at the same time! Merry Chrimbo everyone �

      Definitely wasn't expecting that as an xmas gift, or even as a gambler's chest freebie. Wow. This campaign had been quite a ride.

      Poots, It's... perfect! Merry Christmas. No go enjoy the holidays with your family. XD
