Kingdom Death made a monster of a post (see what I did there?) about the progress of Monster.
Note: in the post there’s several… Kingdom-Death-y models. Just so you know if you’re at work or something.
From the update:
No more estimates. The project and its fulfillment will be done, when it’s done. I have too much respect for you backers, your support and your high expectations of Kingdom Death: Monster to fall short of any future estimates.
The hard plastic manufacturing process is taking much longer then I anticipated. In order for any individual miniature to reach my approval, the time and investment of raw work hours is staggering. It’s needs to be done right, simple as that.
My full commitment remains with you backers. As promised, I have directed the extra time gained from the longer manufacturing process back into the project. As opposed to perhaps the wiser business move of starting something new with the team. You believed in Kingdom Death: Monster and me, and so I will in turn, believe in you, your patience and your understanding. Resources earned from our separate resin sales, are now being invested to expand the expansions and to play test them to a brilliant polish. That is my proof of commitment.
From now on, I will simply share the facts of where we are with hard plastic production along with what we have improved, upgraded or added to the expansions.
Retail Price Adjustment
The core game, now that we have the final specs. Is simply too costly for us to retail it at the originally intended price of $100. It saddens me, but we have to raise the price of the Core Game to $250. It will still include all of the paper goods listed above, along with the all the miniatures (all 17 sprue’s worth!) Packages will be marked to reflect pledges, not the final retail cost of the rewards inside.
