Short & Sweet


Just a quick update today! I am still working on a much larger show and tell, but didn't want to wait any longer! We'll have a nice big long update next week.

Flower Knight! 

Here is a lovely piece of Flower Knight fan-art, by the super-talented HamletMachine, one of Anna's childhood friends. She is running a kickstarter for a Visual Novel game that, at the time of this posting has about 10 hours left! If you are interested I urge you to go and check it out. She has a pretty huge following in the Yaoi scene and is adored by fans all over the world! She also likes Kingdom Death quite a bit and very much enjoyed her recent blind playtest session!

It is my not-so-secert desire to work with her on some male pinups! She is however very busy so we'll ask her nicely if she can find some time soon. Her DeviantArt page is loaded with little gems like this one, I would highly recommend browsing her stuff! 

Hard Plastic Flower Knight This is also a great time to tease this! We got the hard plastic Flower Knight in and it came out great! I was pretty worried about this one, since it is considered by many the greatest miniature in the Kingdom Death range. I was relieved to find how well it made its transition to hard plastic! I will have many more photos prepared for next update along with a nice look at the sprue.

Pledge Manager
Anna has been working to upgrade the pledge manager, so people that want to add more can do so without disrupting the rewards they have already locked in now. Since production has begun we can't really allow people to swap anything around anymore. Sorry!

SatanDuring the Campaign I promised that if we reached 666,666 I would create my own version of Satan. The artwork has been completed, the miniatures have been sculpted and cast. It will be released either sometime this weekend, or on monday of next week. It is a limited resin run of 500, but since It was "in spirit" part of the kickstarter, if we sell out I will take pre-orders for another production run. Those pre-orders will be directly via our store and cannot be added to existing pledges since they are not part of the kickstarter. So if the stock runs out, please do not worry!

That is all for today, short and sweet. I will return with many many more things to look at and our usual in-depth update on all things Kingdom Death: Monster!

Thanks and have a great weekend! ~

      I agree, April 25th, you said we'd be getting the big update in a week. I NEED MY KINGDOM DEATH FIX! D:

      What's the status? When can we expect shipping to begin?

      J on

      What happened to the promised update?

    3. Pride365 on

      @Kingdom Death Please do not bow down or change anything just because of a very few people who did not do any research before pledging here.

    4. Happy Sunshine on

      I love how magic pink complains and whines about KS projects, then backs those very projects . What a hypocrite!!!

    5. Miniroll on

      I like them, but I would only get them (like a lot of other figures in the KD shop) if they are released later on in plastic with game rules :-)

    6. Alessandro S. on

      @ magicpink - You are not forced to buy them, you know?

      By the way, the only thing that I can classify as disgusting there is the skirt :D

    7. Cardoc24 on

      More disgusting pin-ups please. :)

    8. Missing avatar


      So Satan turns out to be just another fucking disgusting pin-up. God this game better be good because I'm really disappointed in myself for giving money to this kind of constant bullshit misogyny.

    9. Ricky Dang on

      OH, didn't realize that. Now I'm glad I didn't take a closer look, as that's clearly NSFW XD Many thanks!

    10. Fontaine Christophe on

      @ Ricky dang : one has a dress made of penises...if that's not disturbing. .. but I agree it's a detail you can miss when looking quickly at the pictures by once painted ^^...

    11. Ropya on

      I think the disturbing details would be.
      Both know their outfits are made up of tongues.
      Easier to see in the art pics.

      And the one with the sword.... Her skirt/cape appears to be trophies of past lovers.
      Of the Male variety.

    12. Ricky Dang on

      What is this disturbing details you speak of? I took a quick scan in class but I didn't notice much.

    13. Fontaine Christophe on

      Ordered my Satan and gold smoke knight. Awesome models though the Satan models have some disturbing details on them ^^

    14. Wes Schneider on

      OF COURSE you guys are buds with HamletMachine. That's awesome.

      And so is her Flower Knight.

      But the male pin-ups idea... dude, you guys have gotten REAL good at pinpointing how to take all my money.


    15. Fontaine Christophe on

      Nice little update before the bigger one.
      I knew the plastic models would be great with what we already saw, but still that flower knight is ridiculously marvellous. I can't wait to see the bigger gribblies in plastic (if the phoenix is a testimony of what great quality we are going to get, then no need to worry).
      Now where is that Satan model ? ^^

    16. Carl on

      Will be PayPal only like before? :(

    17. Iñaki Iglesias on

      This weekend, on Kingdom Death: "Waiting for Satan".

    18. Andreas "Zanity" Bengtsson on

      All this waiting is killing me, I want to play the game so badly! xD

    19. John H. Shinholser on

      I got flowers and satanic promises on my birthday. Hmm. Best. Birthday. Ever.

      Looking forward to your jumbo post, Adam!

    20. Eli Swihart on

      @KD - Totally understandable. I'm really not going to be too worried about getting two Lion Knights, there are definitely worse fates ;) The fact that I get one more chance to add even more amazing stuff is good enough for me. Thanks for running such an excellent KS and providing what looks to be some of the most amazing models I've ever seen.

    21. Edward Farkhiev on

      Can't wait for the pledges to re-open. That flower Knight is unreal!

      Jonny Wright on

      Looks good, and I only just noticed (especially in HamletMachines drawing) how feminine the flower knight is - narrow waist and wide hips. I'm guessing that a question like "Is the flower knight male or female?" might not be a valid question in a setting like Kingdom Death.

      Can't wait to see a big update.

    23. Brian Moran on

      Is there an option in the pledge manager to have Adam and Co. come over and help build the bloody kits :P

      Its all looking great, looking forward to getting my stuff, and just hoping I can get a game in before Christmas (this is a reference to my speed not a comment on fulfilment). :)

      Want to see the dragon though.

    24. Alice on

      I ended up originally pledging at the survivor level, but I grabbed two more of the core game sets as add ons for my friends when the pledges were unlocked later on. I-I was wondering if there was a chance I could change the pledge to the 400 dollar 3x Survivor set?

      Seems kinda wonky to handle truthfully, so not a single hard feeling with a no!

    25. S Buntenbach

      any timeline for the shiping?

    26. Daniel Reinle on

      Will the Satan come with game material to use it in the board game?

    27. Alan Garvey on

      That's fair enough on locking-in whatever we've pledged for already, there was only one switch I had in mind but I can trade/sell that on arrival.

      As for the Satan figure, you do know how may people are going to be F5ing their mailboxes and the KD store all weekend for this now? Evil :D

    28. Kingdom Death 4-time creator on

      @Highlord, wow that is an amazingly simple request, but I am not really sure how to answer it yet. I think you might have open anna up to custom requests for a very limited amount of time to handle stuff like that.

    29. Highlord Tamburlaine, Luxurious Reptile

      Any chance we can upgrade from a base game to survivor?

      Worst case I'll just have to spend more anyways....

    30. Kingdom Death 4-time creator on

      @Peter, we will discuss it further next update. On our end, it is not as simple as just "unlocking" the pledge manager. As it was designed to really only be used once.

    31. Peter Hofland on

      Wondering how I go about adding some more items to my pledge? Or will this be revealed in the next update? Thx.

    32. Jules Halligan

      Looks fantastic!

    33. Kingdom Death 4-time creator on

      @Eli, Everything you have currently pledge for is locked. The units have been ordered and production has begun. I am really really sorry but we cannot swap anything around. I apologize that this might result in you getting a double, if you do pledge enough to be kicked up to herald of death. It's the only way for us to stay logistically sane.

    34. Steve on

      Wow the level of detail captured on the Flower Knight is amazing!

      Very very curious to see what the Satan model looks like.

    35. Eli Swihart on

      Will pledging more let us qualify for Herald of Death if we didn't previously? If it does would we be able to swap something like the Lion Knight we were paying for previously with other models since we'd then be grabbing it in the Herald of Death loot? Am I making this more convoluted than is worth dealing with?

    36. John D on

      The Flower Knight is very impressive. My expectations have been exceeded.
      (I might need some new expectations...)

    37. Andrew McCurry

      Looking good! Can't wait for the next update!

      Out of curiosity; will there be any gameplay stuff for Satan? That would be awesome!

    38. John H. on

      Oh, that Flower Knight is really nice-looking... And so clean - amazing!

      David Kim on

      So... we'll be able to pledge more soon?

    40. Thom on

      Looking forward to the next update and this lovely miniature you speak of =)
