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. 


Upgrades 

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!

Gift
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)?

      Thanks

      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.

      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 :).

      Creator Michael Pruden on December 25

      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. ;)
