Hello!

This might be our most silly update ever and that is ok.

Because today, 

I APPROVED THE NEARLY 18lbs KINGDOM DEATH:MONSTER CORE GAME FOR FINAL ASSEMBLY!

What does that mean? It means that in over at the factory in china that handled printing our massive rulebook, and nearly 1,000 game cards (also game board and token sheets) they are finally taking the huge stacks of all these printed assets and putting them into their final boxes, ready for shrink wrap and shipment.

By the end of the week, we will be emailing EVERY backer with the shipping address we currently have on file. Your job will be simple, if there is a problem, let us know and we will fix it. Otherwise... you are all set!

But Poots, When will fulfillment Start?

Soon dear backers, very soon. This week I am finalizing the last few points on our fulfillment plan and then I will be able to make our big "fulfillment update". Complete with estimated delivery windows from the logistics partner company. Until then, my lips, or typing fingers are sealed. So please, manage your expectations! 

I'll also give a recap on what went down, which pushed us to basically be a month late on the print side of things. Not a big deal... just that the weight of the game contents were crushing the boxes internal vac tray... leading us to make it thicker and add cardboard supports under it. 

Our Shop!

And yeah! We have some new resin miniatures released over at our store, the sales of resin miniatures has very much been supporting us! If you can imagine, a huge game + a ton of promos, pinups and expansions all taking their sweet time in production is not exactly... the best way to keep revenue flowing for our team. So really, a big super thank you to our resin's for carrying us!

shop.kingdomdeath.com

Pre Orders and Final Retail

In the next update, which I'll call the fulfillment update. I will also reveal the final retail price of the Core Game and how pre-orders for our new non backer fans will go down. I still want to do everything I can to help support fans before retail, but there is no way, we can offer the game at the rate the backers got it. Which I personally feel, is totally fair. 

EMPTY HANDED!?

So I am on my laptop right now, and don't have access to any "monster" stuff. So instead enjoy a random assortment of things "Kingdom Death" that you most certainly have not seen yet and will one day, be a formal part of the world!

 Bone Witch, WIP!

 The Mountain Man! Part of the reason there are no Male White Speakers...

The weapon designer of the Twilight Order! The mysterious man behind the creation of the Twilight Swords. 

  A gatherer from a settlement that Worships White Lions.

The Honeycomb Weaver, a new monster still under development. The thing on the end of its phallic-like appendage is a bee hive.

Ringtail Fox Survivors. A new expansion under development, that explores people living in underground tunnels below a dangerous swamp ruled by a great fox-like entity. Securing and expanding the underwater tunnels so you can increase your population capacity is one of the ideas going into this one.

 SO MANY BOXES FILLED WITH SPRUES! 

I AM A DAD NOW!!!!

Myself, a very jealous cat and Mr. Asher D. Poots!!! Hope Anna isn't too pissed I put this on the internet, I am just so happy! 

GORM EXPANSION 

...will be included with the big fulfillment update. Everything has been 100% done for ages now, I just haven't had a chance to assemble the official models and photograph them / all that good stuff.

!!!!!!!!

P.S. If you have any issues / concerns. The BEST way to reach me or the team, is support@kingdomdeath.zendesk.com 

This creates a ticket which we can track and ENSURE gets resolved. So I know its tempting to just hit me up here, or at any various email. But please, its really nice to have it all in one place.

THANK YOU ALL! SERIOUSLY!!!!!

      As there are rumors of some fulfillment being completed, may we please have an update on shipping, maybe a schedule?

    2. Adam Hammer on August 28, 2015

      Before I forget, I did upload a painting tutorial for the Sci-Fi Twilight Knight. Keep in mind, the picture quality kind of stinks (using a camera phone with no focus feature and all), and there may be some typos, but I hope it helps.

      Started building the miniatures I got in my Wave 1 box. Many of which I now have ready to paint (although I do leave parts off to make sure I get all those details, then glue them on after painting is finished). And I really liked that a tiny bag of gummy bears were in my box. How many of you got that?

      The Adam and Anna set was missing, but with a lot of these Kickstarters, such mistakes happen. Especially with so many parts that need to be shipped out in each box.

    4. Margaret Evans on August 27, 2015

      I've not received an email... nothing. nada. Small box?? maybe in today's mail?? please. maybe something soon?

    5. David Bernier on August 26, 2015

      Read that they shipped a "Wave 1" small box which contains I don't know what sweet sweet stuff in it :P

      Some people are starting to receive them!

    6. Jason Windedahl on August 26, 2015

      Small reward box? Whats that? What'd I miss?!?!?

    7. Dennis P Pratt on August 26, 2015

      Got my small reward box and everything arrived in good shape, thank you.

      Finely detailed and nice quality - I am excited for the rest

    8. Jason Windedahl on August 18, 2015

      So incredibly excited for this game. Congrats to you and Anna on your beautiful son! May you enjoy him immensly and raise a legendary gamesmith!!!

      Cheers!

      @Rand Chua TL
      It's been days since you've posted but thanks!
      Didn't know about the in-depth game demo (third vid).
      So many spoilers about the game after the show down phase which was a big enough update for me to get really excited.

      Obviously I don't take back the congratulations :)

    12. Kristian GS on August 6, 2015

      I take back what I wrote 5 days ago - didn't know about Gen Con back then! I assume the next update will be the last before the game ships, and we just got 3 gameplay videos and an interview + reviews, so please wait a couple of weeks with the update. Spread it out a little. Otherwise the waiting time until the game arrives will become unbearable!!

    13. Kristian GS on August 1, 2015

      Hey Adam.

      As a geologist I understand that 'soon' is a relative term, like: "The Yellowstone Caldera will erupt soon and cover The US in ash", "The San Andreas fault will soon unleash The Big One destroying San Francisco" or "The next ice age will soon be upon us - winter is coming!" and so on. However I hope that you do not share my definition of 'soon' and that the next update will actually come in a not too distant future. Like this summer? ;)

      Oh and congratulations on becoming a father - that is huge - I hope you are all doing well!

    14. Hans Peter Bak on July 24, 2015

      I've received no mail. :/

    15. LeeOq on July 24, 2015

      I love everything about this Kickstarter except for the prolonged development time, but even that I understand. I appreciate all the extra effort and content that will be coming to us. I am so stoked to finally have all the waiting pay off in the next couple months. It's been a pleasure reading all your comments as we all waited for the next precious update (hopefully the next update is the last one).

    16. Michael Rinaldi on July 21, 2015

      I have received no email to confirm my confirmed shipping address (which hasn't changed).

      And where is that Update that was to be coming "soon" ... three weeks ago ?

      Really? Well that is strange because the last Email I got was from July 1st.
      Well then I hope for them that the package will arrive, my adress hasn´t changed in the last couple of years, so the fault would be on their site :)

      No email until now and no "major" update on the preorder think but preorder will only be 3 more days.
      In terms of communication this is the next step in the worst Kickstarter ever (okay until now we will see what comes next).
      So until December when the Box will hit my door folks!

    21. Daniel Casey O'Donovan on July 13, 2015

      Ignore that please. I have found the link.

    22. Daniel Casey O'Donovan on July 13, 2015

      Where can I go abouts updating my mailing address?

    23. Horven on July 7, 2015

      Have the emails gone out?

    24. dubhgilla on July 7, 2015

      So you thought you where getting to much sleep and you had a baby? Congratz they are the best but most challenging thing you will ever create (and you thought KD was hard lol).

      I'm sure the bees on the Honeycomb monster have the face of Charles Darwin.

    28. John H. Shinholser on July 2, 2015

      That honeycomb monster. @.@ That might be my favorite concept from your studio, Adam.

      Also, grats on the mini-Poots :)

    29. tre manor on July 2, 2015

      congratulations Adam! it has been one hell of a long haul for you and even though ti is not yet over I can only imagine the relief you are feeling now.

      And congratulations to both you and Anna on th earrival of Mr. Asher. There is NOTHING better than being a Dad man. Cherish their little years as much as possible because they FLY by.

      @David Swanson Everything will be shipped at the same time, or else it would get extremely too expensive.

    31. David Swanson on July 2, 2015

      Glad to read this is getting ready to ship!

      Is 100% of the Kickstarter rewards going to be shipped at the same time, or is only the core game going to be shipped?

      I am under the impression from previous updates that the Core Game, and the Expansions are all being shipped at the same time. If that is not the case, in your Update of the Update for the future update could you outline what is being shipped?

      Thank you, and Congrats on the Little one!

    32. Mad Clown Miniatures on July 2, 2015

      ...and of course Survivors Adam and Anna too.

    33. Mad Clown Miniatures on July 2, 2015

      @Fontaine Christophe: Looks like survivors Paul and Aya to me (included in the Survivor Pledges!) ^_^

    34. Matt Stevens on July 1, 2015

      Grats Adam and Anna!

      BTW, it would cost ~$50 to ship an 18 lb. package from NY to the west coast via Priority Mail. Let's order more stuff to help out Kingdom Death!

    35. Fontaine Christophe on July 1, 2015

      Great news in this (not) update ;-)

      First and foremost, congratulations to the Poots family for gaining a new survivor, er... I mean a member.
      NExt, this update is awesome, as were the 95 previous ones. Good news about fullfilment, something I think everybody was eager to hear at last. And even if you don't whow much about the Monster kickstarter (apart from the plastic sprews), I (we) enjoy anything KD related so concept art are just as good as plastic goodness in my opinion.
      What to say ?

      1) the bone witch : who doesn't like a sexy witch ?
      2) the mountain man : the best concept of this update, he reminds me a bit of slenderman with his long and thin fingers
      3) Weapon designer : mysterious so good
      4) Gatherer : who doesn't like a sexy character ? ;-)
      5) Honeycomb weaver : I personally am not a fan of the concept so far. It has potential, but I think the weirdness of the anatomy is a bit farfetched. I think it's the big mouth from which comes the appendice that is too much. Otherwise, I like the honey reference (sweet but deadly in KD), the 4 arms, the elongated neck. Also, what or who is that little guy climbing on the hive ?
      6) Ringtail fox survivors : nice, and it expands the lore with a new monster (Naruto anyone?)
      7) Plastic crack : impressive to see all those sprues stacked together in a big box. What characters are you showing us ?
      8) a big cat : who doesn't like cats ? :-D

      So congrats again to you and your family, and keep it up !

      I'd like to add a special thanks to Joe who manages the store (I guess) and the customer services. He's been very friendly and helpful every time I add a problem or a request.

      a little but: hope you find a way for us EU backer after so long time I have fear that we have trouble with vat- we need a clear declaration and maybe a bill via mail

    38. Michael Shawn Pose on July 1, 2015

      Congratulations on becoming a father! :)

    39. Kael on July 1, 2015

      It's truly hard to believe it's finally happening! I've never doubted the dedication or quality of KD:M, but I think many of us had grown accustomed to this being a distant dream (nightmare ha). The idea of a tangible product showing up on my doorstep has me chomping at the bit. And 18 lbs!! That's at least twice the size of your newborn child, man! Holy cow! Congratulations on your beautiful baby, and on an incredible project come to fruition, Adam.

    40. JP Max on July 1, 2015

      This little update still has plenty of the good stuff in it! I know there were at least a few of us that were hoping the Blood Witch would be made into a figure after seeing her in some Monster artwork a while ago.

      Also, I need a Honeycomb Weaver.
