24 Hours Left! 1.4 Mil Goal unlocked! Welcome Survivor Kara Black a Kingdom Death x Studio McVey Miniature!


This is it everyone! The last 24 hours! The Final dash of this campaign! Thank you all for being here with me!

We have hit the 1.4 Million Stretch Goal and have unlocked Survivor Kara Black! A special promotional miniature that is a collaboration between Kingdom Death & The Legendary Studio McVey! Kara Black's Original incarnation was as Lt. Kara Black, part of the Studio McVey limited resin line. Her astounding popularity led Mike to include her as one of the main protaginist in Sedition Wars: Battle for Alabaster, a miniature board game that until recently held the #1 spot as the highest funded board game on kickstarter! 

Mike McVey is a legend in our little niche industry and I am so BONKERS EXCITED to include Kara Black as a special part of Kingdom Death!

You can add her to your rewards by raising your pledge by +$15
Kara will be available through this kickstarter and in the future be available in a limited fashion for various promotions.

She comes with a KD:M one shot challenge scenario, a promo giant stone face gear card and will have a painting guide that will have a special highlight on painting skin tones! If you pledge for her, once the campaign ends we will send you a link to pledge manager where you will confirm all your reward selections.

Next goal set at 1,450,000! It has got to be one of the MOST requested goals! The teaser image is a little tricky to figure out tho!!!

      I hope it's Mike himself sculpting her :)

    2. Creator Mario on January 7, 2013

      @Adam: who will be doing a skin painting tutorial? Is this like 1-2 pages, or something more in depth?

    3. Creator Mark Johnson on January 7, 2013

      Another must get item...

    4. Creator Victor Chan on January 6, 2013

      @greywulf - Thanks for your reply. Given the care Adam has put into everything from concept design (gaming rules and physical accessories in his videos) to sourcing artists, I am hopeful, too.

      @Maxime Gauthier - Great to hear! Thank you. The challenge with seeing some of the designs is that they're often either in 3d CG or concept art stage and not at a sculpted/pre-production test stage to look at. I expect that the reputation you're giving will be upheld. This will be one fantastic game to look at it and not just to play.

    5. Creator Rand Chua TL on January 6, 2013

      There is so many items i want!

    6. Creator Green Arrow (DC) on January 6, 2013

      @DaveC, Shawn, Brittle, and Graywulf

      Thank you all for bringing me up to speed. Been seeing that for a while and getting lost.

    7. Creator Christopher Musawi on January 6, 2013

      i'm holding out for a behelit.

    8. Creator Matthew Edwards on January 6, 2013

      @Adam Poots

      what if this version of Kara is the "lone survivor"

      ie after the battle of alabaster, kara is left on the station alone for an indeterminate period and has to survive of the land

    9. Creator Darkson on January 6, 2013

      Could it be gear cards to make the Green Knight so you don't have to own all the different monsters to get the gear?

    10. Creator George Kong on January 6, 2013

      I guess that big ass stone is the Kingdom Death equivalent of a big ass machine gun. Somehow I don't think it's translated very well :P

    11. Creator Chris O'Keefe on January 6, 2013

      Gotta be dice..

    12. Creator greywulf on January 6, 2013

      @Green Arrow - What You See Is What You Get... In games like warhammer your mini actually has to have a plasma pistol in its hand for it to be able to use it. In Monster here it seems that survivors can be dressed up wearing dragon armour but really be wearing leather just based on the gear cards.

    13. Creator Maxime Gauthier on January 6, 2013

      @Victor Chan - As an owner of the few Experiments of Death kits (the Twilight Knight pinup and the Wet Nurse, both their first models in plastics), i can tell those are, as far as i've seen so far, the most detailed plastic kits I've seen. I don't have any of KD's resins to compare with, but comparing KD's plastics with, say, more traditional plastics and even resins (I'm looking as everything GW, PP, Mantic, etc), KD comes out on top gloriously.

    14. Creator Brittle on January 6, 2013

      @Green: "what you see is what you get" - some miniature games require that any weapons / armour / gear that a character has be modeled on the mini itself.

    15. Creator Shawn Polka on January 6, 2013

      @ Green Arrow (DC) - What You See Is What You Get. Normally used in miniature games to say that a model must be representive of their rules - aka, having the correct gear shown on the model.

    16. Creator DaveC on January 6, 2013

      WYSIWYG = What You See Is What You Get

    17. Creator Green Arrow (DC) on January 6, 2013

      @greywulf: I have been searching for answers but what does WYSIWYG mean?

    18. Creator David Weiss on January 6, 2013

      the stuff from wyrd is supposed to be pretty good to and we know it can be done in volume.

    19. Creator Josh Erickson on January 6, 2013

      I'm gonna say next update is Custom D10s with a Lantern for the 10 face.

    20. Creator greywulf on January 6, 2013

      @Victor Chan - we don't know, the plastic hasn't been finalized. There's potential (but not sure what %, high or low) that they will be trollcast, which could be amazing!

    21. Creator greywulf on January 6, 2013

      These gear cards and the actual gear for these promotional figures seem to only come with their specific figures. Is there any chance the minis would be packaged with 2 of the gear item, like 2 cola bottles and 2 hood heads and 2 giant stone faces so that we could add them to a different figure too? I know this isn't a WYSIWYG but it would be nice to be able to add them to other figures, no?

    22. Creator Victor Chan on January 6, 2013

      Hey, everyone. I became a backer only a few days ago and am as excited as everyone here if te game and the figures. Because of budget I'm deciding to go with quantity (as many expansions and pinups as I can) vs quality (resin kits).

      I'm not asking about negatives of going plastic vs resin (resin's always gonna win out for quality hence my tough decision) but I just want to ask if anyone's familiar with how well the plastic figures from existing releases have turned out. Adam, if you see this, I intend no insult, just want to get a sense of what to expect from a KD plastic figure vs another plastic line, paintability, etc. Cheers and looking forward to the next (few?!) stretch goal(s)!

    23. Creator Ryan Blackstock on January 6, 2013

      I remember asking for an extra hit location die :)

    24. Creator Brittle on January 6, 2013

      @David Weiss: that might make the whole nightmare horror gameplay experience a little too authentic for my tastes! I'm cool with the minis, but when somebody in my gaming group appears to grow a penis tail held by anus hands, I might have to draw the line.

    25. Creator Kingdom Death on January 6, 2013

      @J Durrant, don't know yet! Someone from the Team for sure, but the schedule hasn't been finalized yet.

    26. Creator David Weiss on January 6, 2013

      Maybe it's a crystal of whatever Adam does to come up with this stuff

    27. Creator Gary Sandstrom on January 6, 2013

      Ladies and gents, it would appear he needs a hand to reach this next goal.

    28. Creator Brittle on January 6, 2013

      @Chevaliers: you could always house rule that the face is made of... unstable plutonium? Sci-fi compatibility achieved! =P

    29. Creator J Durrant on January 6, 2013

      So who is going to sculpt to model?

    30. Creator Brittle on January 6, 2013

      @KD: Exactly what I was trying to say! My apologies if it was unclear - I wasn't trying to misrepresent your comment.

      Looking forward to the next stretch, dice or otherwise!

    31. Creator Psychor on January 6, 2013

      I also thought it was a dice ring. Haha - oh well.

    32. Creator Orlando_the_Technicoloured on January 6, 2013


      I note the fleshtone painting guide with interest, is there perhaps a Studio McVey input into that ?

    33. Creator Green Arrow (DC) on January 6, 2013

      Wow adam, that is a great addition to the game. Having monster trouble? Shape stone just not cutting it for you?Trade in your sharp stone for a full size stone face!!! Bone crunching fun. :P

    34. Creator Alejandro Kondrasky on January 6, 2013

      "MY FACE IS MY SHIELD!" "Yeah...? Well, FACE THIS!" Being realistic (???) is possible to model her in that pose ? probably in plastic but it seems like hard to maintain that rock face in that position, a great achievement in any case (or at least that's what my ignorance let me see )

      And that hand is just freaking crazy, i don't know what is exactly... but I'm just going mad about it! Fingers ? :D

    35. Creator Kingdom Death on January 6, 2013

      There will not be any SW rules. We felt that the prehistory vibe didn't work well in the sci fi universe of SW.

    36. Creator Kingdom Death on January 6, 2013

      omg! embarrassing! i fixed it!

    37. Creator Oliver Walters on January 6, 2013

      Anyone else noticed that the goal completion at the top is wrong. It shouldn't be $1,450,000 it should say $1,400,000. Just saying...

    38. Creator William Flickinger on January 6, 2013

      @Adam - Are there intentions for this to be compatible with Sedition Wars (like the Candy/Cola with "Relic Knights")?`If compatible, would there be rules/stats for SW included?

    39. Creator Adam Canning on January 6, 2013

      It's the King's Other Hand. :)

    40. Creator Esoba on January 6, 2013

      @Adam - So this is either custom dice or a ring pop. Which is it Mr. Poots ;) ?

    41. Creator Balgin Stondraeg on January 6, 2013

      Funny thing, Kara's picture ahs the wrong number at the top and claims we've reached the next stretch goal already. Clearly that 5 shouldn't be there :P.

    42. Creator Kingdom Death on January 6, 2013

      The Dice Ring Project was not canceled. There just was not enough time to do something custom for the kickstarter, we plan on working together later this year.

    43. Creator Jibboom on January 6, 2013

      It won't be this, but the silhouette made me think a KD-style dice holder that looks like a disembodied hand would be cool. I have not seen anything to suggest the game has any need for one though.

    44. Creator Esoba on January 6, 2013

      Custom dice would make me a very happy panda.

    45. Creator Esoba on January 6, 2013

      @AGN - HA

    46. Creator Brittle on January 6, 2013

      If I recall correctly, Adam mentioned (vaguely, in passing) that the dice ring collaboration didn't work out due to some production issues clogging up the world's for the other guy, preventing him from being able to work out anything before the end of the KS. The custom dice remains (excitingly) possible, though!

    47. Creator AGN1964 on January 6, 2013

      @Esoba, I'll suck on that!

    48. Creator Lucio Maron on January 6, 2013

      It's a Powergamer D10... with 10 on all sides ;)

    49. Creator Esoba on January 6, 2013

      @AGN - Boy aren't you going to be pissed when it is a Kingdom Death themed ring pop ;)

    50. Creator AGN1964 on January 6, 2013

      If the next one is tricky to figure out, all I can say is the puzzles in this game will be rather easy!
