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!!!

      @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.

      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

      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?

      @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.

      @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. 200-herald-of-death.small

      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. Avatar.small

      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.

    20. Larson_pic.small

      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. Larson_pic.small

      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. Avatar_c.small

      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)!

      @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.

      "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

      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.

      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!
