Happy Holidays! Christmas Day Update!


Dearest backers, I come with a pair of upgrades and a gift!
( in a super duper rush, did not spell check this one, anna is asleep and I beg you for forgiveness! ) 

I am happy to be spending another holiday season with you all! It has been a truly special year and I gotta admit its actually really hard to stop working for a few days. Until the new years I will be dialing my time down to just 2 hours of work a day, so i can keep ontop of key communication with the plastic production team and a few of the freelancers that aren't taking time off. 


The forsakers mask, a piece of gear you can earn from defeating the butcher is also now represented in miniature form. It was just too cool to pass up! The original skull helm has had another art pass. The original was interesting but the new one feels much better. In addition they will also be represented in miniature form for all those budding bone warriors out there!

This is my gift to everyone for being awesome. I spent some time with our digital sculptor working on some more elaborate hair styles. These were initially a creative exploration, but they turned out so well we have decided to share them! These extra heads will be included in every core game box. 

I am rolling all the other updates I have at this point into a larger update which should be around... the second week in January. ( maybe end of first week?) I am expecting a lot of plastics so it would be nice to have a little time to assemble everything, take photos and then just share it all at once.

I just wanted to say again, thank you so very much for being part of this kickstarter and part of my life for the last year. We are so much closer now to bringing this truly titanic project into reality and all of this simply would not be possible without you. Although there was a certain comfort in taking it slow, this push is worth it and I just can't wait until we are all playing KD:M together!

      Hi @Adam,

      I hope that you are enjoying the new plastics that you say you should have received. I was wondering (as I am sure that many other backers are) how easy it will be to magnetise the survivors. Would it be possible to post a picture of all of the components of all of the survivors armour kits alongside a reference for size (maybe a ruler with both inches and cms)?

      Hey Adam, this might sound like a random question. What music do you listen to when you are playing and or creating stuff for KD? just curious.

    4. Patrick Chapman on December 27, 2013

      Adam it has been my pleasure to be part of this project.

    5. Pride365 on December 27, 2013

      I meant offical ones feom adam which he has said he isnt going to do anymore of at least for now

    6. Balgin Stondraeg on December 27, 2013

      I'd say there might be some more gameplay videos when some of us backers start to receive our copies. There's a distinct chance some of us might put a few videos up :). I can't say they'd be very good quality at first but they could happen. Never say never.

      Quick note: I'm not planning on filming any myself but I am one of the players willing (and offering) to run a game or maybe even a campaign over skype for you guys once we all get hold of our copies and feel ready to play :).

    7. Pride365 on December 26, 2013

      There isnt going to be another gameplay video

      Great update, feels like a christmas gift with added bonus on top of it. Thanks Adam, I love the new hair designs, especially the plait.

      Keep it up!

    31. Daniel Magnan on December 25, 2013

      Wow! Awesome Christmas gift. I can't believe Adam keeps adding to the core box. It is getting crazy how much stuff is going to be in it. I am glad to hear Adam is taking a well deserved rest over the holidays.

    32. Alexis Perron on December 25, 2013

      WOW. Just... wow.

      Even after a year and a bunch of other awesome miniatures-based boardgame projects that I backed, KD:M is still the one I'm anticipating the most. Merry Christmas to the Poots household and the whole KD:M team and thanks for all the grea stuff you're throwing our way. I can't wait to see that big january production update.

      You're a prince amongst kickstarter.
      My package with the Chosen and Pinups came in yesterday, perfect in time for a Christmas present.
      Thank you for that.
      And thank you very much for the amazing work you continue to do with this KS.

      Adam, these all look incredible, those new female heads are gorgeous, thank you so much for making them!
      I just got my Pinup Savior from the BF sale last week, so I finally have one of your figures in hand- it's even more incredible in real life.

    48. Jibboom on December 25, 2013

      Just sneaked away from family to read the update, Merry Christmas and thanks for the extra presents Poots and Anna!
      Those extra heads look fantastic :)

    49. Michael Pruden on December 25, 2013

      First off... Merry Christmas as well... but all these extras that keep being put in without a real production update really doesn't put my heart at ease... Don't make this adventure to grand that in no way will it ever be viable as a game that can be played. The miniatures are grand and I love them but some people do want to see this eventually hit our doors.

      Again Merry Christmas. Thank you for all the beautiful artwork and passion for your game. I hope we get to see some more production pieces in the near future as it's hopefully going to get shipped next year. ;)

    50. greywulf on December 25, 2013

      Merry xmas to all. And thanks for the gifts Adam! The best to you and yours. And don't get sick now that you're on some form of holidays... that's usually what happens to me.
