Hello! I'm really looking forward to this, and had some questions about bosses/enemies since it's a little hard to tell how many different ones you will face off in the boxed set; looks about 3 before Flower Knight.

How many different challenges will the players come up against in the basic boxed set? I think they'll be more if the monies keep pouring in but that's an unknown as of now.

Thank you!

Will the kickstarter also open up options for new single-pose minis that aren't just pinups (not that they're a bad thing, I own the Great Game Hunter and Twilight Knight pinups, with a Survivor pinup on the way, and they're all fantastic)?

As good as the modular models are, it's plainly obvious that your monopose models are your very best, and I'd like to see more of them, in a variety that isn't just limited to pinups.

@Moopy,

In the core box we are looking at 7 monsters. Antelope, White Lion, Phoenix, Watcher, Kingsmen, Kings Hand and the Butcher.

The Antelope, White Lion, Phoenix and the Watcher have the most variety, the watcher being the last boss and the other 3 being great for resources. Most monsters have 3 sorta "challenge" levels and their AI deck / hit location deck is built based on their level.

The Butcher, the Kingsmen and Kings hand are nemesis monsters, the Butcher in particular continues to grow more powerful every time he is driven away.

@Fafnir, Well thank you for the compliment! The main focus for Monster is, monsters and armor kits. The 4 starting survivors are single pose sculpts by the talented JAG and Adam & Anna the explores of death are also single pose sculpts. I will see as the campaign continues, later on we might be able to use the extra funds to line up new stuff. But for now I want to focus mostly on game content that adds as much beef as possible!

If the survivors are single pose sculpts, what are the 'armour sets' for? Are they for building survivors that have levelled up and acquired gear?

Tyranids - 3000pts
Vampire Counts - 3500pts
Haqqislam - 800pts
Tohaa - 500pts
Neverborn - 150ss

The 40k rulebook does not disallow Forgeworld units or models. They are legal Games Workshop products for standard play. Accept it.

Glad to know.

Also, once Monster is finished, will you be going back to expand on the "Boutique" horror that you've built up with previous releases? Furthermore, will Monster be just one game that the KD universe is built up on, and will it expand into other games after that? Or will Monster be the Framework for whatever else you plan on doing?

The setup of Monster (I keep getting a great Dark Souls vibe from it, and that's only a good thing) certainly has me interested in how the fluff of the rest of the Kingdom Death universe will unfold. Based on what you've shown off for the original KD releases, it seems like Monster is more of a prequel to the backstories of the characters you've shown off with previous releases. I'm quite intrigued as to how all of this will all work out.

Right now, it feels like Monster is built more upon the more primal fears that a primitive society would have, while the "boutique" releases tend to focus on something much more psychological. All in all, it's an utterly engrossing and fresh look at dark fantasy.

@-Loki- , That is exactly right. As you play you will gain access to new gear & armor and be able to build miniatures to represent your favorite combinations. I suspect crafty hobbyists will magnetize or pin certain parts of their kits. I will be looking into this during production, but being a miniature game, I feel it might be best to focus on quality and give hobbyists their own room to explore how to build / use the parts.

@Fefnir, I will continue to support the boutique resin range as it will always be the genesis of all future kingdom death related endeavors! I am also personally addicted to resin and I very much enjoy slowly improving the prints, packaging and certificates of authenticity that come with the LE versions. Currently I have 3 games planned for Kingdom Death and Monster is indeed a big setting of the stage. It focuses on normal humans and how they come to be, survive, flourish and perish. The second game will be called simply "kingdom death" and it will focus on the special, the exceptional few humans that we might consider heroes. The last game, which has no name as of yet will be the only competitive game and I envision its rules existing soley online and it being a hero vs hero all star battle. A very limited skirmish that is not cannon to the world. Inspired by Smash Bros and Dota type games. In an ideal world, the plastics would all be managed by a publisher and I would continue to focus just on art and managing a boutique resin line.

Thanks!

Wondering what was so 'unofficial' about the other Kingdom Death Kickstarter thread?

I understand that the game allows you to customise your models with various bits of armour and weapons. My question is are they interchangeable? As a modeller and a gamer I want my game model to be WYSIWYG, but at the scale of the models in the game and the constant changing of weapons and armour, are the parts going to be interchangeable?

My fear is that you'll assemble a model how you like, but will have to glue one option on the model, thus making all the other parts redundant, and having a model that doesn't fit the game you are playing.

A bit of everything really....... And where's the icons for DUST Tactics, Firestorm Armada, Super Dungeon Explore, Sedition Wars, Relic Knights, Epic Armageddon????

The end of the video shows miniatures made by mixing all the kits so it looks like they are all fully interchangeable but they will need to be glued together permanently unless you get creative with magnets.

EDIT I've screencapped them and attached them below

I mentioned this in the KS comments, but I'll add it here as you may be more likely to see it.
Don't make the same mistake Reaper did early in their project by putting the freebie stretch goals too close together. You have 1300 backers now, and could potentially reach 5000 or more by the end, so just remember that every freebie could possibly need 5000 copies. I wouldn't want you to lose money on this project.

I wouldn't worry too much about that.

This one seems very well planned out, and once plastic tooling is purchased, the cost of the miniatures themselves is not excessive.

That particular model might not be a good idea for Kickstarter - as I'm sure you're well aware.

You can get that model in plastic by purchasing "Experiment of Death" from his site.

Now I just want Forsaker, Twilight Knight to get added (and maybe Lion Knight for a monster).

The contents list "2' x 3' Game board"; what exactly does that entail?
The one picture showing something like contents shows a rather spiffy set of plastic 3D tiles, seemingly an inch square. Does the game actually include 2'x3' of that (which would seem *awfully* good value!) or is it a bit of that, and a lot of card/whatever?
Can't really find the answer myself on the KS or in this or the previous topic, I'm afraid.

I think the game board will be printed on heavy card like most other board games there is a preview of the artwork in the video (@4:58) I assume the board will fold in the center. The 3D tiles are just for display purpose for the KS as the board isn't finished yet but wouldn't it be great if they where made available later so we can make custom boards.

The parts look too small to all be magnetised. So we'll have to glue them, meaning I'll have loads of bits I can't use, and I'll most likely have a non WYSIWIG model? I may be labouring on this point but it is a very importent one for me.

I think only the truly detail obsessed will lose sleep over that though.

We should have enough bits to build the various types of armor/weapons/etc. you can find and make.

The gameplay cards will then say what you actually have.

Everything should be "close enough"!

With minis this size you'd be better off (especially in pvc) just drilling pin-holes and glueing the pin to only one of the parts - with stuff at that scale I think it's actually more practical than magnetization!
