Hey Soul Suckers!
Sorry for the delay on the update, things have been a bit crazy in Goat HQ. (Physical inventory can take quite a while.)
We went through all of the final updates and comments one last time to make sure there wasn't anything we missed or overlooked. And we wanted to bring up some stuff that got brought up once, changed, etc.
- Someone brought up that they wanted an Evil Dead 2 soundtrack to play with the game. While we can't make that happen, Waxworks Records is doing a new pressing of the soundtrack on vinyl this year, so keep an eye out for that!
- The Revenge of Hitler Mini-Expansion will be coming with 13 cards and not 1 as it says on the front page. He has a separate scenario as well as card that summons him in normal gameplay.
- Revenge of Hitler, The Classic's Last Ride, and Mirror Ash will all be coming in blister packs so the figures won't be damaged when they ship. They will all be able to fit in the deluxe box (if you take them out of the blister pack).
- All of the miniatures will be at the Hero scale of 32mm. We decided to go with this height to make them easier for the painters at the factory as well as everyone painting at home.
We have gotten the dice from Mike at EvilDeadWorkshed and now it's at the Laser Engraver! We have some images to show you the process.
Here's a video from a while ago with Mike showing how he made the dice. He's been just working on them bit by bit for a while now:
The above video shows one row of dice getting laser engraved!
- We're just talking with the licencor and the factory to get things finalized (packaging, boxes, etc.). Assets are being sent over in batches and we get exact numbers/timetables we will let backers know!
Carter (Our stretch goal intern!) also whipped up this gif based off of the Ex-Mortis box art. Use it for whatever you feel like!
We also wanted to give you backers all the heads up that we will be bringing Evil Dead 2: The Official Board Game to Indiegogo's InDemand program soon for pre-orders. We will only be offering the standard board game, the Beyond Dead by Dawn Graphic Novel, and the upcoming Evil Dead 2 coloring book. The Kickstarter exclusive Deluxe Edition and the Kickstarter exclusive figures in that Edition will not be offered. We just wanted to give you all the heads-up before you saw it pop up over there and let you know that none of the Kickstarter exclusive stuff would be offered.
We're hard at work on logistics for getting this bad boy off to the printer. But if you have any questions, feel free to message us through Kickstarter or email us at email@example.com.
