I know Adam got sick on the last day of the KS and it was a crazy ending... but I just want one more update, just need one more!

Would love to know what's going on in KD world.

I was talking to the guys at work about this kickstarter and every single one of them said they'd take the money and run.

As much as I'd be upset if he did do that and steal all our money, I guess part of me would laugh a little.

Edit: Also on a more serious note, it seemed like Adam was working his ass off the last week or so of the Kickstarter. I'd say he deserves a break.

I've communicated with Adam via email and on KS. He's around. I wouldn't blame him for taking a short break. He needs to collect the funds, which from what I understand are not immediately available to him, and generated a KS survey for people who pledged.

It takes up to 2 weeks to get the funds. I imagine he has tons of logistics to figure out. I am a bit worried that this much money would be tempting, but he seems to have poured the last few years of his life into this, in lieu of a real job, seems he would want to see it through...

I'm pretty sure Adam indicated he'd be taking a two week break after the end of KS before getting back to it. Regardless, I'm also really anxious to seeing more updates! On a similar note, I still can't figure out if the people that did Relic Knights are posting their new stuff anywhere--it went completely dead after the KS ended.

I know what they mean - but I honestly doubt that anyone who'd devoted so many years of their life on a project like this would jack it in for a pile of money just when their goals are about to be realised.

It'd be a bit like training for years to take part in the first Olympics on the moon, then spending your rocket fare on retiring to the Bahamas instead of acheiving the goal you'd worked so hard towards.

So no - I have NO concerns at all that Adam is currently browsing brochures for properties in the Caribbean!

Relic Knights didn't go dead... They posted an update EVERYDAY in the 12 days leading up to Christmas!

On topic: I'm DYING for an update!!!! But I understand Adam probably wants to rest... And maybe fill a swimming pool with our money and splash around a bit

He also got sick during the last day, possibly with the flu.

Just get some industrial grade pain killers and the year will fly by!

Also, good luck with the surgery! Get well!

Bah! RK's KS has been dead since 12/25/12. That's like an eternity or two on the interwebs! The 1/04/13 post of the KD:M cross-over doesn't count because it's not a RK KS mini; it's a KD:M option.

Since then it's nothing but prospectors complaining that they bought a bazillion LE/SE miniatures to gouge people on eBay, which apparently won't be as LE/SE as they thought.

End of off-topic post. Time to check what painting advice is being shared at KD:M's KS. (=

I was looking around a little and stumbled over a few threads elsewhere with pictures and info. The first is the official KS KD:M thread over at the dakkadakka.com forum. Not sure if I can post it here? Easy to find.

The second is a blog written by Thomas Davis, which contains a lot of pictures I had not seen elsewhere. http://art.thomasdavid.over-blog.com/

As much as I hate to say it, I REALLY don't see this showing by Nov 2013. I'd guess May 2014 or even later. No slam on anyone involved in production but I've never backed a Kickstarter that wasn't at least 4 months late and this one is the most complex of the bunch.

Adjustable pledge manager?! Will this allow for addition of funds?

If so, anyone interested in adding a TON of stuff? I lost my pledge spot due to lack of funds at the time (

edit- that is exactly what the APM is. I'm so disappointed Adam didn't announce this before the end of the KS, or I wouldn't have lost my spot.

I find it funny all these complaints about Adam while UpFront has not made a peep since funding and no-one has complained.

I did love the messenger in the KD:M today. Might add it now Adam was nice enough to start taking extra cash :-)
