I know we have to wait and see but in some comments I see people talk about wating a year for delivery. I would like to know why? The game should be done already and the miniatures too. So it should be available pretty soon or why not?

Its a reprint. if they already had them made they wouldn't need kickstarter money. Thus nothing is made yet.

Also, it's not just a reprint. There's the 1.5 upgrades which may or may not be finalized, and it would be surprising if they didn't add at least a few new expansions.

I think a year is reasonable, longer is certainly possible.

I know that it is not produced but the molds and the layout and everything should already be done. At least for the core game?
I would have thought it should take about 3 month or something but I have no idea how this works. Propably you are right and it will take a long time.

It looks like new sculpts are coming, at least for the survivors. But if I'm honest most of the monsters could do with more dynamic sculpts also.

A new Lion? Oh yeah...

Also note that Adam Poots is kinda a perfectionist and do care more for quality over timely delivery. Well this is properly also why the game is so good, so don't complain about his delivery time.
Another thing is that it is a really small team behind this not a big corporation, they have to get everything into the printers schedule and they are limited to use the same printer as last time since it's hard to get same quality for the components elsewhere.
I wouldn't be surprised if we have to wait more than a year. Surprised if it is less, yes.

Same here, I don't expect the delivery to be less than a year, because there are a few changes, and also because I think Adam Poots is preparing quite a few big surprises for everybody...
I actually think it will take longer.

Which update? I checked the twitter and facebook page but couldn't find anything about new survivor sculpts?

In the Lantern Festival Cancelled update on the last KS, there was a teased picture of a dynamically posed survivor in armor (alongside the new Survival of the Fittest).

The long and short of why we expect it to take a year is the first two rules of Kingdom Death: Poots is bad with schedules. Namely, he might say something will take one month, but you're better off mentally if you just pad a few more months into that calculation. Then you won't go insane with the waiting game.

Of course, there have been notable exceptions: like when he said he was going to roll out the expansions on a monthly basis and then just said "Screw it" and dropped all of them in the store and watched the nerd pool become a blood-soaked abyssal feeding frenzy.

So...hopefully none of that. Cause while it was cool to get all the stuff right away, a thousand voices cried out in terror, only to be silenced.

I'm really looking forward to playing this campaign with my son, but if it's like 2 years before delivery we may not get much time with it before he leaves the nest.

If you're on a time limit, eBay is the way to go.

Hopefully it won't take 8 years to our rewards.

The core game is aiming for summer 2017. That sounds great to me. In upgrade one commenting the first stretchgoal he says: "Oh yeah, this has already gone into production months ago and will not effect the estimated timeline of the 1.5 Core Game or 1.5 update pack... at al!!!!!!!"
