Right now they are in production.
The date they will be sent to backers has to be announced yet.
I think I read about a january date somewhere but I'm not sure.
I'm sure they will be available for retail on the KD online shop.
Seeing how much the core game retails for, I'm sure the expansions will be expensive too.
However you don't need to buy all the expansions together.
So you can buy those that fancy you most first and when you have played them a few times you can get other expansions.
Some just change the monsters you fight on the core game but the lantern festival let you play a longer campaign. So some expansion bring much more new content than others.

What’s a big box expansion? Are there different sizes? How are you breaking them down?

I think that backer PDF’s were supposed to arrive in November and expansions for backers (sorry bakcers) were supposed to arrive in the New Year. The official word was TBA.

I believe the "Big Box" ones contain a "big" monster, but also armor kits sprues, settlement locations, equipments, resources etc.
Like the Gorm, Dragon King, Sunstalker and lantern festival ones.

The small ones contain a kind of Nemesis monster, like the Manhunter, and I guess some kind of event cards and manual to integrate it in the campaign.

That's what I got from the various sources, so I might be mistaken.
Some expansions are a bit of a middle ground: the Beetle knight is a fightable monster, but unlocks some agriculture-related innovations and has a a small armor sprue

The one good thing about the expansions is that, hopefully for myself and non ks'ers, they haven't tripled their contents and price. If their MSRP is pretty close to whats advertised on the KS then my wallet can breathe easy.

Highly unlikely. I would bet that the price will be at least +50% over the "projected retail" price listed in the KS.

Yeah, I am curious how much the Dragon will be. That thing is huge!

I really hope this is the case.

I'd imagine they will be pretty close to the estimated MSRP from the KS sense the "stuff" included in each expansion hasn't changed much from the KS. Unlike the base game which was dramatically "super sized"

The latest retail prices were already above the KS "retail prices", not to be confused with the KS backers already paid, which were even cheaper, or "KS sale prices". I believe the latest listed retail prices were $50 for a small expansion and $80 for a large expansion. It was like $6-700 for all the expansions at MSRP.

Edit: $730 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/64463922/kdm-temp/kdm-se...
That's if the prices don't rise even further from there. Why oh why did I not know about this kickstarter...

I'm budgeting about $600 for expansions on Black Friday. If it gets much more expensive than this, then I will have to wait on some. Ugh, my wallet is weeping...

I'd guess at least a some of those prices are questionable at best. I really can't imagine the Man Hunter and the Lantern Festival both being the same price.

The thing is, is that these expansions will allow you to challenge the very fabric of the Kingdom Death world. Instead of just surviving, your settlement is now reaching out and fighting the source of their misery. I seriously think those who successfully complete their campaigns, carefully record everything so you can continue (if possible) to grow through these expansions. I would love to be able to get a settlement from day one to loping the head off the Scribe (again, if possible). Now that is EPIC.

If the Scribe is even the big baddie. Who knows, maybe the Ringtailed Fox is pulling the strings.

Depending on how good the deal is I'll likely only pick up one or two expansions. The base game is already overflowing with content. I'm afraid if I pick up everything at once a lot of it will never get used and just take up shelf space. At least that has been my experience with prior games. I'm loving KD:M thus far (my preorder arrived about a week ago) and I've already gotten at least 20hours of play out of this game and I'm still really enjoying it. I'll be interested to see how I feel in another 3 weeks when black friday rolls around, or this spring when the expansions actually get here.

If the expansions go up for pre-order on Black Friday I'm going to be in so much trouble. I seriously need at least half a dozen of them.

I sincerely hope for you all that the expansions price will not go through the rough.
That being said, if the whole package happens to cost less than 600 dollars at retail price (or during Black Friday), it means that my purchase on eBay (the highest KS pledge there is) wasn't worth it...

But a dozen expansions for 600 dollars would mean an average of 50 dollars the expansion. It seems unlikely.

The more I think about it, the more I think you are right. I'm hoping for a $60 average for all 12 expansions. And when I say "hoping" I mean, I'm hoping my wife doesn't kill me when she finds out how much money I'm pumping into this.

I am planning on picking up 1-2 as that is all the wallet can afford and hope that they will continue to be available over the next year or two

Hmm, the highest KS pledge does not come with any expansions. You had to order expansions separately.

I think it's pretty obvious they mean the highest Black Friday package. They are talking about hundreds of dollars not thousands.

I thought it was the highest pledge but I didn't participate so, I don't know.
The expansions were then probably ordered as options.
Anyway, I meant the game + survivors level + expansions.

Are you sure you're getting all the expansions? The highest pledge + all the expansions would have cost the buyer over $600.
