There was once a fertile land of golden grass and prideful lions. Uncounted centuries ago, a parasite took root and over time a corrupted city grew to engulf the plains. The Golden Knight, a mysterious guardian of these lands, waged a losing war against the corruption. As futile years passed, the knight’s appearance grew twisted and haggard as the land itself. It’s glorious mane fell out, replaced by angry wailing smoke billowing in its place and the Gold Smoke Knight was born.

My ideal is to be at a place where resins are one time runs and are followed up by a plastic counter-part with game rules.

Don't get me wrong, I love KD:M and I'm backed for nearly every expansion and promo, but this isn't even close to being relevant to the game yet. Adam himself says he has a very slow, conservative business model. We probably won't see any semblance of game rules for this guy for quite some time, if at all.

I was just curious I guess why you'd make a thread about a non-game related mini is all.

EDIT: Everyone has made some valid points about the validity of the thread. Thanks for the input! I was just curious what others thought

PS: SUPER EXCITED ABOUT KDM!

I would say this is a valid thread. It has news that Adam is planning on incorporating these figures into the game eventually, regardless of timeframe, it is still game news. Also, there have been no new threads on this game in a while, so it doesn't to post an awesome looking figure that may eventually be a character in the KD universe. Lastly, this figure is so sweeeeeeet! Replace Slender Man with this guy please

How is this mini or thread not game related? It doesn't matter how far into the future it is before we might get it. Still is relevant.

I'm excited for his release plans. I didn't catch that comment on the KS comments. Thanks OP for the heads up. And yes this smoke knight looks awesome.

Tis a nice sculpt, a small extra chunk of background for the game and a titbit on how the designer sees the product line progressing.

And gives me the impression that it might be an older version of the Lion Knight.

IIRC that makes at least four extra monsters Adam has suggested will appear in the game at some point in the future. Illuminated Lady, Nightmare Ram, Storm Knight and Gold Smoke Knight.

He definitely said he had plans for Nightmare Ram, and I am MOST excited about the possibility of the Storm Knight! It's by far one of my favorite sculpts so far, and I've honestly been kicking myself for months for not grabbing one of the resins, just to have on my desk.

I didn't see anything about the Illuminated Lady! I wonder if he'll clothe her for the game. He's already mentioned the Brood Mother will probably not show up as game material I believe.

From the comments on the kickstarter with respect to the illuminated Lady
29 December
"The illuminated lady is currently not suited for plastic. The details on her face and the subtle folds in her skin are far too fine. She would look like a blurry faced statue of venus holding a lantern. Sorry, I have plans to revisit her one day when I finalize the designs for the larger monster she is part of."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that most of the figures already released (mother, grand-mother, forge god, etc.) were going to be part of the "game" at some point, be it under the form of an expansion for KD:M or a whole separate game based in the same universe...

Has Adam said something about particular sculpts not being translated to gaming material?

He did say some of the figures [Pinups and the Wet Nurse) weren't planned to get rules.

Quote:

There will not be any game rules for the pinup twilight knight. Pinups do not get game rules, sorry!

There is no current plans for game rules regarding the wet nurse in KDM.

Quote:

Forge God, We will have to wait and see. Not sure if he will appear in monster as of yet.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/poots/kingdom-death-mon...

Others which means basically anything associated with the Holy Land other than the Lion Knight(s) [Chosen, Forge God, Mothers, White Knights] he's implied aren't going to be seen in this game as opposed to the higher power one variously called Kingdom Death, Kingdom Death:Heroes or Heroes of Death. He implied that was at least partially that the Scribe doesn't create new humans near the Holy Lands.

Can't find where he said that but I did find

Quote:
The Scribe plugs the ears and seals eyes with pools of ink when he breathes life into a new human.
The Lanterns are bioluminescent and are not powered by fire. They are also normally cool to the touch ( "Beyond the Wall" a normal lantern held that close would burn your flesh ).

The faces are created by a monster called the Sculptor.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/poots/kingdom-death-mon...

Quote:
There is no singular ruler over all the lands, The Golden Entity is merely the entity that rules the Holy Lands. It is a vain but has no mortal shell and the lands are an extension of its will using humans ( not quite as slaves ) to create its bizarre empire of self appeasement. The Wet Nurse is a sterile entity, it can neither create or host life. It's sole purpose is to raise human children and pass nutrients that chemically program different type of workers in the society. There is no free will, nor can these people be freed. Hence why I do not call them slaves.
I am calling the area Monster takes place as "The Kings Land", but that is just a name I use to describe it to myself

Ah! Thanks about all the info. I've already read some of it (some I might have forgot about as well...!) but there are several interestings fact about KD:M that I wasn't aware of. Basically, what it does tell us is that almost all of the figures will be used in a game somehow (KD:M or else) in the same universe.

Awesome.

The fact that you have to dig a little bit (comments buried in the project page, bits of info scattered around the official website...) to get the info about the game just makes the universe even more mysterious... This is a good thing...!

It's the big boss of the 1.5 version now! So how do you guys think he will fit storywise as the last boss? He does not appear to be a bad guy after all...

Perhaps survivors are the parasites!

The Lion God lore hints at the downfall of the lion civilization, of which the Necromancer-maddened Lion God is also a living remnant.

That civilization seems to predate the King and Scribe and Sculptor, entities with an interest in survivor life cycles. Perhaps they engendered human life in the lion civilization's lands, causing it to fall?

I think that the parasite that took over is the Brain Worm that infected the Lion God, and the corrupted city that grew is the Silver City itself.

So, the poor guy GSK went against the Lion God and lost. I can feel the man, I did that countless times
