Production Update! Twilight Knight Crossover! Sculpting Update! Development Update!
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! (to ourselves and our fellow USA backers and fans!)
KDM 1.5 Production Update
Estimated Wave 1 Fulfillment Start: End of August 2017.
Plastic production for the core game and update pack was finished as of April 2017 and we have approved the paper assets for production!
And one more, showing off the box a little more!
Possessed Twilight Knight : Oracale of Nozuki
As part of our deal with Sodapop (For Lantern year 3 Candy), we have our Pinup Twilight Knight crossing over into the Relic Knights universe in a unique way. I love projects like this, as it gives me an excuse to work on something a little different from the norm and collaborate with other studios. It was super fun to put this one together! Oh and the KD team is handling her sculpture, as well as the art. Sodapop / Ninja Division will be handling her manufacturing, and game content for the Relic Knights system. She will not include any KD game content.
You can get it here! Relic Knights Pledge Manager
*Please note that you will need to pledge for other Relic Knights items, they are not offering her solo.
A lot of you have reached out to me requesting that the base insert packs be added to wave 1 fulfillment. I wanted to let you know that I am trying my best to accommodate what SEEMS like a pretty simple request. Please understand that all the timetables are pretty tight and it is likely I won't be able to do this. I am trying tho!
Right now production of the plastic components are underway and I am lining up the schedule so that we can fulfill these for the holidays of 2017. I do not have any dates from the manufacturer yet, but since its a straight reprint, it SIGNIFICANTLY reduces turn around time. So take that date
Ah yes. The ever-elusive card pack! I have slatted this to be available around Jan 2018. If possible I'd like to move it up to coincide with Wave 2 for the holidays. The plan is to sell this via our web store, it will not be available thru backer kit.
We will be attending Gencon 2017 as exhibitors! Our Booth will be in the same location as last year and in fact, we got a little bit bigger!
Personally I have been hard at work on the content for advanced Kingdom Death monster. The philosophy system has already been thru a host of alpha's and we are looking to start actively testing it's first prototype somewhere in June. It has been extremely satisfying to comb back thru everything and to embellish on the settlements growth via survivor development. The system is leaning more towards survivor's learning and contributing so the curve of powerful survivor's being developed is more in line with the escalation of the game and less of a random development.
Lion God Expansion, Expansion - Silver City
Dungeon romp replaces the hunt phase. Currently have the Lost Knight up and running on the showdown board, but we are going back in and incorporating it's fight experience more into the dungeon delving element of the game.
We are developing all the monsters for the Inverted Mountain campaign at the same time, so we can ensure that its the best campaign arc yet. Insanity is going to play a major role, with certain disorders being prerequisites to innovations, fighting arts and sometimes gear! Anna has been heading this up, here are some words directly from her!
"The Inverted Mountain campaign tells the story of a new kind of settlement. Waking in a teeming swamp, the survivors gaze up at a sickening light dawning over the summit of the Inverted Mountain that looms above. In this campaign, humans must do more than survive, they must ascend.
The strange light bathes the settlement, filling the soggy survivors' minds with strange urges. Called by the ever-present compulsion to climb the mountain, the survivors will need to harness the hallucinatory swamp. brain-altering parasites, and freakish delusions to develop a civilization with a single minded purpose.
The Inverted Mountain campaign uses Monster's massive rules to create a new settlement cycle. Innovations that reflect a different environment and survivor adaptations. New relationships between insanity, disorders, and new instincts for survivors to follow."
Here is the Pariah all cleaned up!
The Apotheosis Pinup went under more heavy tweaking. So much of the detail was lost in the scan, I saw an opportunity for improvements and well, I couldn't resist taking the extra time! I'd say this was more of a scan clean up remastering?
The Oblivion Mosquito hand sculpture is finished!
We have also been hard at working making basic blackouts of all the armor! Once finished this will be used as a starting point for their "narrative" versions.
Lantern Year 3 Candy & Cola
Well, we couldn't have the Possessed Twilight Knight soda pop crossover without mentioning the other side of the arrangement!

"Twist Gaming: Josh, Anna, Nicole, Matt and Aaron have partnered up with Twitch to bring you live play and commentary on a ton of games. They’ve been covering KDM pretty much since it came out so it’s great to see their success with their stream every tuesday they buckle in for a couple years of Kingdom Death. And they let you play along too. Through using a system of votes and automated rolls the views control one of the survivors! It’s super entertaining and sometimes Barash or I pop on for a session.
Instagrams worth a look:
@CraftworldStudio Has posted this iridescent Dung Beetle Knight! Well done right?! That armor looks great and the light effect on the pauldrons really bring the DBK to life.
@Mizugiwanohito Really slick Easter Knight I’m digging the greys here. A muted vision of the model but not diminished by the palette the painter chose.
@HMpaintworkshop is always cooking up some amazing projects. One of the great things about this painter is that they often show their progress so you get a real idea of their progress."
I'd also like to do a quick call out to @ShoshiesMinis whom has been painting up some awesome KD stuff to share on her twitter.
Also, the tablelords KD series is awesome!!
Oh! and here is the better half of the conviction romantic pair!
