@cadium Also, there will be no more updates on KS. You need to follow the KD newsletter, or just come and ask here I guess. One of the regulars always has the latest info.
It's being completely reworked focusing on towns/cities instead of settlements. The final Kickstarter update in September will talk about it in actual detail.
Hello, if anybody has news regarding the lantern festival expansion could they please enlighten me. There have been no official updates since Feb and it's making me a little anxious!
Nope. All full of perfect plastic goodness.
Jason, I agree...but be sure to check the boxes too. One of my boxes was just a box...I filed a support ticket.
That was the fastest I've ever received a kd order, and the new plastic packaging is awesome. It still makes me feel a part of something special.
Perhaps useful for us backers, it looks like Swan restocked their 52x52mm sleeves for the item cards, they're in stock both in the US and on a EU site that sells them.
Get them while they're available.
Got a response from KD about what wil contain the pack
"Adam, hasn't decided yet, expect more news in upcoming updates."
So right now anything can be possible
@Paireon Perhaps after the next gencon. It sounds like the box set was a gencon exclusive deal ($20 per mini instead of $25) However you never know. Black Friday perhaps? That is always a special anniversary for KDM.
Oh poots, you cruel mistress, adding those game add-on cards actually made me spend way more than I would otherwise. But hey, I finally get Percival!
It is my understanding that the card pack will be for Beyond the Wall, the White Speaker and Allison the Twilight knight only. Anything that was resin and now remade in plastic you would have to buy to get the cards.
Damnit, missed the box set. Anyone know if it'll ever be available again? Pinups of Death was made available a few times IMO.
@xavier. It isn't clear. That is part of the reason I ended up buying the box set. To make sure I got all the game content.
I dont think KD checks this comment area anymore. So if you want an answer you will need to contact them.
Does the futur game play content is containe the ones in Beyond the Wall, the White Speaker and Allision the Twilight knigh or does does it also have the rest (fade, percival ect,)?
@Toad - I saw those. It was interesting. Basically white primer with a grey/black wash. Reminiscent of statues. Quite unique. Didn't think to photo them. Lots of other new minis I hadn't seen before either. The new plastic boxing is slick too.
Anyone get pictures of the KD minis at Gencon, specifically the white with inked paint job. I really want to give that a try.
I ended up buying the box set. I really only wanted 4 of the minis as I already have the rest, but figured I would end up paying for the missing cards and shipping again later anyway. So for basically an extra $75 or so I get 6 duplicate minis to use or sell.
Seems they fixed if by adding a "Fade 2" to the store
Yes but Fade is broken. I just get a blank page when I click on her so I cant add her to my cart.
New releases are in the store!
I have to post here but I'm extremely upset with KD. I never got my Herald of death gift (which I was counting on for those particular items) and instead of giving me store credit for the value or replacement items, they gave me $30 to my Paypal (which I requested not be sent). I contacted them about it and they just said they're not going to bother with my request.
That really blows.
Posted on the FB group, Techraptor did an interview with Poots where he discuses the difficulties in detail as well as a bunch of other cool plans. I won't steal their thunder, but safe to say there will still be a fair delay on the Lantern Festival (definitely beyond this year) but it does sound worth it. Details in their video and post here:
So what is the status of lantern festival?
It is a sad day. Today is the first day since April that KD has not been setup in a living state on my dining room table. We have guests coming to stay for a few days and my wife put her foot down that I had to clear off the DR table so we could use it. Turns out the foam board design from the Files section of BGG worked superbly! I didn't sleeve my cards so it left me with enough space to pack in all my resin terrain, along with all the small and medium based figures. DK, Babyface, Lion-O, Spidey, Birdo, Sunny, and Lonesome Bush are all decorating my bookshelves.
Matthew, did you at least score a KD pencil?
Went to KD booth a few times at GenCon. Wow. Had multiple demo tables up. A bunch of pni ups (with content) I hadn't seen before. The sci fi Flower Knight in resin, and some KD shirts that actually said Kingdom Death on them. A bunch of the expansions too. A fair amount of floor space in all, even if he was stuck in the back corner. Too bad all I could do was cry over all the product, since I can't eat minis.
KD got a shout out from Penny-Arcade a couple days ago that I just noticed: http://www.penny-arcade.com/news/post/2016/08/05/live-from-gen-con
Shame Gabe missed on out snagging a copy, I'm sure it would have been right up his alley.
From his latest newsletter:
Beyond the Wall, White Speaker (the kickstarter gift) and Allison the Twilight Knight had a new production run and I added some game content to their boxes. We will be putting a little card pack together for their content, for people that already have the figure.
In answer to earlier questions: "Until then, they have added new card art to a few of the existing sculpts- and don’t worry, if you already have the sculpts and would like the card art, reach out to Kingdom Death and they will sort you out. "
Also, it should have a pretty quick turn around. The new printing could even begin before the year's end (total armchair speculation).
It's an effective way to take pre-orders, althought he loses a percentage to Amazon, he gets that big push, so I guess the tradeoff is worth it.
Huh, I guess Adam's not quite done with Kickstarter - http://www.beastsofwar.com/liveblogentry/kingdom-death-confirms-reprint-kickstarter-plans-for-this-year/
(*thanks to Kyle Currie over on BGG)
The entire time Kingdom Death: Monster was being created Adam was multitasking and making multiple figures/cards/etc. like crazy. It's not like he could only work on one thing at a time and time spent on something else meant the first thing wasn't getting done.
Point: It's not inconceivable he's working fully on the Lantern Festival AND has time for other things too.
@Lawrence Long- Everyone already knows how long it takes Adam to get anything done, getting worked up about it won't make things happen any faster. Besides, it's not like there's really been no update on it. In June he said September was his aim for it, the art book, and the final kickstater update.
I don't understand how you find this acceptable and still provide excuses for this...
Adam makes the early concept and most of the gameplay. Making new pin-ups or minis with little or no game content is not very taxing on his time. Redesigning the Festival from the ground up is another matter, especially since it looks to be the biggest expansion so far.
@Lawrence - Hey man, don't knock it! All those new figs being sold are helping make sure that Poots Inc has fresh cash flow to keep the bigger projects rolling!
@John D, I agree. Someone did make a fan forum and it didn't go anywhere unfortunately. I was waiting for Adam to open an official one but apparently the plan has now changed and there won't be one. BGG is ok but getting pretty quiet now.
I wish we had a KD forum (BGG is it's own thing). Such a great community evolved over this project, it's a shame to see it go.
I packed up KDM for the summer, but mid-Sept should see it covering the dining room table once again.
So Adam has all this free time to create new plastics and content for Kingdom Death but still no word on the Lantern Festival. That's cool, I sure would hate for it to show up this year...
@Eric I think there is a good chance. Adam has been pretty good about providing that kind of thing. Hopefully, if they are made, they will be available the same time as the cards for the pdf bonus content so we can just buy and pay shipping once.
So seeing the pictures of all the KS pinup and accessory figures that now have new content and equipment cards along with them at GenCon, what are the chances that we will be able to purchase a content pack of all the new cards without having to rebuy figures?
Just wanted to repost what I saw. Looks like a sneak peek at gencon.
Hopefully something after or alongside Gencon this weekend, a newsletter with some news and new releases maybe.
Hope something exciting comes up soonish because I keep checking in here and reading "They are racists" before I see it properly and remember what the post is about.
They are recasts. Pretty much any minis from sellers in China is a knockoff unfortunately. If you look in the description it states "all model are high quality chinarecast"
can someone tell me if these models are legit or just a cheap rip off?
way too cheap it just doesn't seem right..
Not that much change, except the Lantern Hoard and 1 HL for the Butcher IIRC.
I'd like to hear about what Adam will bring to GenCon, to know if I must muster a ninja shopper or not.
i hope there will be somekind of "uppgrade kit" with the new changes in version 1.4 , so that us 1.31 can uppgrade our core box, without needing to buy a completly new box or print/glue etc our own cads and stuff. For sale then ofc, not expecting that for free :P
