Something I haven't seen mentioned is the fact the retail box depicts skeletons and the necromancer on the cover but no actual undead come with the game. It will of course come with a necromancer too.
Isn't this misleading?

I don't think the front cover is ever relied upon that much as a guide for what you get in the box - it's more of a grand picture of the theme to draw you in. The back cover normally depicts the actual contents.

the stretch goals added skeletons and mummies, so I think undeads are covered. They're not KS exclusive so I think they'll be in the retail version as well. The King box just has even more of them.

Not for retail though.

I was under the impression that everything not marked as KS exclusive would also be found in the retail box.. I might be wrong though.

Retailers will be sent the core box. The additions through stretch goals are rewards for the backers. If they are not exclusive they will be sold separately later.

Of course you're wrong. That would be an absurd amount of miniatures to find in a base game. The core box will be as is listed on the page. And that is already a lot of miniatures and sculpts compared to the average for this type of game.

It is uncommon for the front cover to show stuff that isn't in the game, but not completely unheard of. Normally, yes, the picture gives you an indication of what the game offers (in the case of games like HeroQuest they tried to include every type of monster possible on the single picture). Of course, most people will at least glance at the back of a box before purchasing.

It has always been my suspicion that skeletons were intended to be in the base game, but when Monolith realised that was never going to be feasible they broke it out into the separate King pledge. I mean, they also said the base game was going to have three Conans, so they clearly had to adjust their expectations of what they could offer at a sensible price point.

#1. I don't think this is even the confirmed box cover art.

#2. Base skeletons are SG, not exclusives (alt sculpts are exclusives). Nothing says they won't be in the final retail box.

#3. Skuthus also not marked as KS exclusive either. He's your necromancer and has been in core box since the beginning (leaders row).

Any stretch goals that are not kickstarter exclusive just means they will be for sale later at retail in some form at an additional cost. They will not be included in the retail copy of the base game.

Being a Geek is a sure sign of a sound mind, cause it means you think that life as it is is dull and should be more interesting. Which it is.
