So looks like CMON's latest KS is getting some Zombicide exclusives. You can read the full update here and the pictures are here:




Personally I'm pretty disappointed with them. I think it's a poor crossover (there is a Kingdom Death one already which makes far more sense) and it seems that CMON are just clutching at straws trying to get people to back Wrath of Kings which at the moment isn't doing as well as their other projects (I was backing it but ultimately dropped out). I don't like them so not bothered about not getting them but I imagine so completionists are going to be a little put off by this.

I hate to say it, but these will join the ranks of Kyoko for me; "Sure would like to have it, but don't plan on it happening."

I love the idea of Wrath of Kings, but it doesn't seem to have legs in the long run. Most of CMoN's miniature games just seem to be falling flat and they keep moving in new directions. They don't seem to have plans to keep continuing things beyond the "starter" sets for most of these new franchises. (With SDE and Zombicide being exceptions) I would gladly drop a few bucks to buy these, but the extra $50 to do so is a bit more than I'd like.

They've already about-turned after a shit storm in response to the post on Facebook! You have to pledge $10 as a handling fee but you can then order as many of these guys as you want as long as you were a Z1 or Z2 pledger.

OOH! I missed that. I was trying to avoid the uproar that I knew would be flowing over there...

Thanks!

I think the massive deluge of survivors that came in S2 (and plans for 12 more in S3's core set alone) must have cured me of my "gotta catch 'em all" mentality, because I can't work up any desire to own these two (albeit the pig mask guy is kind of cool). Maybe if they show up on eBay for a reasonable price in the future I might think about it, right now I'm good with what I've got and what I'm getting

Yeah, I backed out of the gotta get them all mentality during S2 as there were just too many and loads that didn't interest me. Probably would have been good if I was cured before buying all the S1 promos at expensive prices but NM! I do like the S1 promos a lot although I'm probably giving my Dave the Geek away.

My guess is there will be a lot of these hitting ebay from Wrath of Kings Kickstarters who don't own Zombicide and see it as a way to make some money back.

CMoN does know how to generate extra funds, I will give them that but this kind of stuff is pure horse shit. The $10 for shipping and handling is ridiculous. Just throw in on another order we already have should be an option, or pick them up at a convention. Yes, I would wait until GenCon 2014 to save $10 on these figures.

Yeah, the 'handling' charge is pretty stupid (and it's $15 for ROTW) considering you would get it included if you were a pledger. Wrath of Kings does look fantastic too and is the type of game I'm interested in, I only dropped my pledge because I have too much going on at the moment, but this has really soured me to it completely.

Not interested.
And I want all the survivors.
But this is in poor taste.
If they'd offer to ship it with s2 or even with s3 then maybe.
But I'm overloaded with war games now. Don't need another.
Especially since one of those games is Relic Knights....

Like the models a lot and the fluff behind them!

Cool Stuff. Will be picking these up along with my Wrath pledge.

They are optional ...

I believe it's the one you get for submitting a scenario that CMoN puts up on their site.

Kyoko (and its zombivor counterpart) are promos gifted to those that create scenarios that end up being displayed in Guillotine´s Zombicide website

Kyoko will be way more easier to get in the coming months, I wouldn't worry too much.

It was hinted on Edge a few days ago, you'll be able to grab her at your FLGS if you play a few demo scenarios.

This might not be the whole picture, like, maybe you'll have to buy the game with it or something. I don't know.

These "things" don't fit into the game at all.
I'm normally a completist, but I just don't get being a completist on this or any other CMON game. Stuff just doesn't seem to be well thought out enough to bother beyond blatant marketing.

That would be great, they did say she would be available through other promotional means in the future, and she is a much cooler flamethrower using survivor than Rose. Hopefully if they do give her away in larger numbers she'll make her way onto eBay - not many FLGSs around here.
