More people are playing Kingdom Death than ever before! We can tell, too. The heaps of corpses that piled up through our near-endless winter have thawed, resulting in a well-fertilized spring! Just take a look at the bounty Kingdom Death players have recently shared across the web and directly with us at the official KD Twitter account @kingdomdeathvassal
Brought to life by the immensely talented Elizabeth Beckley, The Easter Pinup Twilight Knight is a sight to behold!
Crystal Brush 2018 Awards

Organized by Cool Mini or Not and hosted at the Adepticon wargaming convention, the annual Crystal Brush awards celebrate excellence in miniatures artistry. Kingdom Death miniatures were well represented this year, featuring prominently among the winners of the Fantasy/Steampunk/Historical Single Miniatures category. Richard Eaton’s vivid Flower Knight—with its incredible cape—won first place, while Liz Beckley took second with her amazing Nightmares mini-scene, featuring the Pin-Up Nightmare Ram. Phenomenal work by both artists, and well deserved wins!
Spotted on the Kingdom Death subreddit, u/Phylactory prepared some snacks(??) for their departing survivors. Although not usually consumable gear, these fecal salves are chocolate butterscotch puddings served with a smirk.
A Bright and Stormy Knight
The crew over at PaintCademy.com recently shared their brilliantly ominous take on the Storm Knight. PaintCademy.com provides practical tutorials for minis painters of all skill levels, and this single figure certainly shows off the breadth of techniques they’re prepared to teach. Have a look, then go learn how they did it!
Sometimes all it takes is a distinctive paint job to catch our eye here at KD Headquarters. Certainly, that’s part of what struck us about Paul Kleynhans (@sockmerchant) exceptionally well-dressed take on the Pariah. Pale and purple, with a hint of gold, it’s a striking color combo that’s great inspiration for all your fashion-forward nemeses.
