Late comment but Yo I'm from Brissy & I can let you know what I did

I was in the Kickstarter and while I waited for the game to finally ship I spent ages devouring information from Gambler's Chest and Add-Ons tabs here.

For sleeves, I originally went for the official KD sleeves which were good, but availability for them had pretty much been once-off, so once the expansions came I was shit outta luck. I then went for Swan Sleeves, which are $3.95 USD per 100 Premium (pretty good price for really good quality, albeit shipping is a bit hefty and will change depending on number of packs ordered). 57x90mm sleeves are a perfect fit, but if out of stock then the 60x90mm are also a good fit. I just had a look, and both are currently out of stock, but just keep them in mind, 'cause AFAIK no one else stocks premium 57x90mm and they (imo) are undoubtedly the best fit for the cards.

As someone who's never sleeved before, it takes waay longer than you think it will, haha.

For gear cards, I personally went with the binder option; it's really convenient to be able to organise them like this. This was just using a 3-ring binder from Officeworks and a couple of these coin pages from Amazon.

For the making of the miniatures, while you can make do with a kitchen knife and some nail clippers for removing pieces from sprues, you'll make your life a lot easier investing in an X-acto knife and sprue cutters. By FAR the cheapest knife is from Bunnings, and at $2.50 it is of fantastic quality and comes with 3 extra blades. Sprue cutters you'll have to look around; best I could find was a cheap pair from Amazon that are fine. Finally, plastic cement is an absolute Must imo. Can't recommend it enough - instead of acting like an adhesive like superglue, it essentially melts the parts together and creates a very strong bond. Tamiya is pretty good and works great, but feel free to have a read around forums; people will have preferences for various brands, regular, thin, extra thin, etc. The making of miniatures is daunting at first, but it's not as hard as you might think (although you're like to make a mistake or two at first, but dw about it lol) and resources from, and forum threads on should see you through most of them :)

That's pretty much it. The storing or shelving of miniatures is up to you, as is whether or not a box insert is necessary.

Hope at least a couple of the things I said were useful. Have fun!

KD was my first time assembling minis. I definitely had some trepidation over the whole thing, but really it's not bad.

Now, I admit, I had some guidance from a coworker, but I'll pass all that guidance onto you right now. All you need are the following three items:

  • Plastic cement. This stuff is great, and is the best thing to use for plastic models (even Adam recommends it--even this brand specifically, I believe). It actually melts the plastic together to create the bond. Now, this may sound scary, but the great thing about it is it doesn't act as fast as super glue, which means you have time to play with the join to get it just right (while it still dries fast enough to be convenient). Just be careful to not get it on your fingers while holding a join, or you may leave fingerprints (a little goes a long way, and this isn't hard to avoid).
  • A flush cutter. That's the one I use and it works great. You'll use this to snip the individual pieces from the sprue (that's what the sheets of plastic that you get are called. A sprue represents what comes from a single mold, and has many pieces attached to it, which you will need to snip free to assemble). It's super easy--just take your time to make sure you don't cut off more than you need to. Many pieces come with extra plastic to assist with the join (kinda like puzzle pieces--they fit together, you just still need to glue them).

  • A standard Xacto knife. I won't link this, cause honestly any will do. You'll use this to clean up your pieces. Primarily you'll probably use it to deal with the excess plastic left from where the two halves of the mold joined (also known as "flash"). I generally like gently scraping this away with the back side of the Xacto knife, almost like I'm sanding it. You can also use this to cut off any excess, if you don't get a joint snipped off quite clean with the flush cutters (better to cut off too little with those than too much!).

    Basically, the key once you have these tools is to take your time. Consult a guide like, which another poster mentioned, and which was an invaluable resource to me.

    A mini takes me anywhere from an hour (really complex monster), to 20 minutes, generally. They can go much faster once you get the system down, but I like taking time to figure out exactly what the mini should look like (for the armor kits).

    Throw on some music, or Netflix (or whatever helps you pass the time without distracting you too much), maybe grab a beer, and make an evening of it.

    It's also worth noting that all you need to start playing is the White Lion, and the four Starting Survivors. These all come on a single sprue, and are really quite simple to assemble given the above directions and tools. That will get you through several hours of gameplay just by itself, and then from there you can move on to creating other monsters and survivors as you need or want them.

    Hope this helps!
u/Elltrain_ · 6 pointsr/KingdomDeath

Malifaux minis are pretty darn close to KD in terms of complexity. I really don't think you are going to find anything cheap, but you could probably buy, assemble, and ebay the minis you build (and anything is cheaper than fucking up a KD model). You'll lose a few bucks, but a well assembled mini is worth almost as much as one on the sprue.

I am new to assembly as well, but after about 20 models I don't even sweat it. Everyone on this sub swears by Tamiya liquid cement -- but I think this applicator is 100x better than the brush for most cases:

Basically... take your time, clean up every little piece as it comes off the sprue, dry fit a few times to make sure. It's not that hard, it just takes patience. Sometimes I will sand+dry fit a piece a dozen times before it finally fits perfectly. One thing that I didn't realize for a long time is these things aren't perfect -- sometimes a piece just doesn't fit and its up to you to fix it. A couple of the hands on the Phoenix, for example, were real bastards for me. A really great trick I learned randomly on youtube -- you can use the plastic cement as a kind of seam filler by putting slightly more glue than necessary, so it just barely squeezes out the side. Then cut/sand any excess.

I also recommend grabbing a cheap seam scraper and a very nice sprue cutter (the clippers at home depot are not made for plastic). Also maybe some tools for pinning -- for example, I had a resin base that I wanted to put my antelope on, so he had to be pinned to it rather than glued.

If you are going to paint your models, there's a few more things you should get -- a putty you like, some clay shapers, and some way to do some light sanding.

u/Vonderbread · 3 pointsr/KingdomDeath

I did not need to pin him. In fact I've not found the need to pin any of the models because of the glue I use.

That stuff emulsifies the plastic a little to create a nice bond, of course be careful with it, but it works great. The harder you press and hold the parts together until it starts to set up the better it fills in seems too. The applicator tip is very helpful for these tiny miniatures as well.

For the SA use masking tape to hold the disk in place if need be, but if you hold him in place for about 5 min it starts to set up enough to hold the base in place then you can turn him upside down so all his weight is off the leg and let him set up for for a day. Usually this stuff sets really fast, the only things that require more time to set are real "load-bearing" spots like the leg here or the left hand of the Dragon God.

Reminder: this glue essentially melts plastic, but as long as you don't bath your minis in it will not harm your model. It only emulsifies the surface it is applied to. It will not eat your model like acid or something.

u/chickeninferno · 11 pointsr/KingdomDeath

Since most of the others have given you the right answers to your questions, I thought I would elaborate more on how you could store your game as well as bling it out. I have around 6 completed campaigns at this point (so maybe 500ish hours in…holy crap that’s a lot more than I expected)

Here’s what my setup looks like:

Card Storage and Organization: I found the broken token card organizer ( in a hobby lobby art supply case ( works awesome to store the cards. Hobby lobby routinely has coupons for 50% off of one item. I think I spent $20 for my case. One case will hold all of the non-gear cards for the base game (sleeved) and all of the current expansions. I bought a second one of these cases to store all of the terran, settlement events, settlement locations, gear grids, rulebooks, etc. I no longer use the original box at all.
For the gear cards, I use a coin sleeve sheet ( in a three ring binder.

For sleeves, I primarily used FFG Grey sleeves but I did back the Mage Sleeves kickstarter so I used those for the gear cards, settlement events, and settlement locations (there are likely other places to get them)

For tokens, I used these ( 28mm coin holders.
For holding them on the table, I used (

Highly recommend having these survival action tokens for each player as well, because it makes it very clear if you have already used the survival actions or not – There are not tokens for this in the game, these are purely helpful addons. (
Colored rings around the bases is also really helpful for remembering which character is which. The ones I purchased are no longer for sale but something like this (

To hold the gear grids together, these are awesome but pricey (

I would also use these remaster card sheets printed on thick paper ( - Your first campaign will be people of the lantern - I would recommend starting off with around 12 of the character sheets.

u/overthemountain · 3 pointsr/KingdomDeath

It takes a lot of time. You need the right tools. Id' have an exacto knife, some clippers, some files, a good glue, and probably some gap filler. Oh, and a cutting board to work off of.

I linked some examples to give you an idea, you can feel free to find a particular product that works for you, although I do really like the Tamiya glue. There are a lot of little pieces so some people might like some tweezers as well. I use cupcake wrappers to help keep the pieces in one place as I'm assembling and keep them from getting lost. I'd recommend not working over carpet as a dropped piece might get lost forever in there.

As others have said, Vibrant Lantern has some great build guides, which are probably required for more complex models like the Phoenix.

Otherwise, don't let the amount of sprues overwhelm you. Pick a miniature to assemble and finish it before moving on to the next one. Most of them are fairly straightforward. I would really recommend you take your time in assembly, as getting the edges filed and gaps filled will pay off in the long run - nothing worse than a well painted model with gaps and mold lines showing. There are plenty of videos out there on how to do this if you aren't sure or just want some additional instruction.

Start with the White Lion and starting survivors. The Screaming Antelope and Butcher will be the next ones to tackle. All of these are fairly easy to assemble.

u/federalbeerguy · 3 pointsr/KingdomDeath

I'm certainly no expert on miniature assembly but have done a handful of KDM stuff and have had the best success with Testors Plastic Cement (Testors 3507AT Liquid Cement for Plastic Models, 1-Ounce

That said, on two models I've done (Antelope and an armor build) there was a bit of difficulty either getting the model to stand correctly (former) or attaching a piece (latter).

If you have a hobby drill and the two joining pieces are large enough (depends on your drill bits) you can drill a small hole that will accept a paper clip or other pliable metal item, insert it in the drilled holes and apply glue. It works GREAT!

u/Taboobat · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

I second Tamiya Extra Thin Cement. It rarely gets recommended, but when you look at reviews some of them are crazy good. It took me a couple tries to get the hang of, but it's really solid stuff. Just make sure you give it a couple hours to fully dry.

That's a pretty sweet starting kit for sure, the flush cutters in there alone are like $8. I'd add picking up a whole set of files like this, I've found that having different shapes (needle point, round, etc) has been really helpful for filing some sprue nubs that are in weird places.

u/SunstyIe · 2 pointsr/KingdomDeath

Armor kits come with the original game purchase- yes.

I'd recommend this glue:

Anyone that has built minis for a while loves Tamiya. It's FAR superior to most super glues.

u/Lord_Derp_The_2nd · 2 pointsr/KingdomDeath

FYI: You will want to use Plastic Cement for these hard plastic models. It will give superior results when compared to super glue.

I recommend looking for something like this:

The Model Masters (an offshoot of Testors, so a well-known brand) has a very nice this applique needle to apply very small amounts to precise locations. It'll keep you from ruining your new expensive figures! The game can be played without them. Take your time assembling, fixing, sanding, etc.

u/LadyLexxi · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

I use Paladin's standard sleeves and also perfect barrier sleeves.

The perfect barrier sleeves are amazing value to price, and they're a lot easier to get than the paladin sleeves

Edit: also in case anyone is interested I use these coin sleeves in a trade binder for easy gear and settlement item management

u/outremus · 2 pointsr/KingdomDeath

To add to the good info above: for KDM miniatures you are pretty much guaranteed to need to use putty/epoxy for the gaps on them if you want them to look good painted. Most of the big monsters will have some very noticeable gaps when put together, and it is fairly common on some of the armor kit survivors too (especially the unarmored kit mentioned above - serious issues with "ken doll" arm sockets).

For larger gaps, I prefer milliput superfine white. It is firm enough you can shape it (add water to help change consistency if needed).

For smaller hairline graps, I really like Vallejo Plastic Putty. It doesn't require pre mixing and is easier to work with if you just need to get it into a tiny gap. Usually apply it then wipe off with wet cloth.

u/Mare_Vaporum · 3 pointsr/KingdomDeath

I have the base game and all expansions. Every card I have is sleeved, except for the gear cards.


For all normal sized cards:
These fit flawlessly!


For settlement locations:
Yes, they fold around and seal on the back, but right now they are the best answer to protecting this huge investment.


For settlement events:
These are like 1mm too short. Sometimes it drives me a bit mad, but again, I would much rather they were protected this much, than not at all. They do get shuffled and used every round. I've seen some people use two sleeves per card to cover it completely, but that's a bit much and they tend to split badly when you attempt it.


Why did I not sleeve the gear cards? Because I bought these and cut them down to a 3x3 grid:
This keeps them quite protected during the game and is incredibly convenient as far as storing for next round.


Hope this helps!

u/godplusplus · 2 pointsr/KingdomDeath

Personal suggestion:

The only cards that will need shuffling are standard size (Hit Locations, AI, Innovations, Disorders, Hunt Events, etc). So it's easy to get sleeves for those. And since they are standard size you can even colour code the sleeves easily.

Settlement Event cards are the only "weird" sized cards that will be shuffled, but you can get around that for now by using dice or a randomizer until someone releases sleeves that size (which are easy to get and don't require a frigging kickstarter pledge).

Gear cards are strange sized, but you won't need to shuffle those. Use something like a "coin protector page" (similar to this) if you wanna protect them while playing.

I'd suggest getting some well reviewed mini brushes from Amazon as well. Make sure you clean them. Enjoy!

u/CheshireM · 2 pointsr/KingdomDeath

You're welcome! I appreciate that you're open to suggestions - it's easy to get attached to a plan. Since you seemed receptive I'm going to elaborate:

I ordered KD:M and then this Vallejo flesh tone set and this Vallejo basic colors set, which got me going. Like I said, i had to supplement with a lot of citadel paints from my LGS that ended up being frustrating, so I wish I had gotten some more saturated base colors in the beginning, maybe something like this, that comes with purples and oranges.

u/Mannwich86 · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

I was able to assemble my entire core set plus 11/12 expansions with these items:


The clippers are still going strong and the files work nicely. I have no mold lines or excess glue on my minis and I filled in some gaps with green stuff:

You can usually find it a bit cheaper. Hopefully, that helps!

u/digitaldavis · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

I HIGHLY recommend getting a glue with a needle-point applicator. Some of the things you will be gluing - like hands - are very, very, very tiny.

This glue is incredible. Best model glue I've ever used.

u/fu22z · 7 pointsr/KingdomDeath

Eh, I personally recommend not buying bundles even-though they seem like a better deal. I started by just buying paints that I would need for a particular model and continuing from there. Before I knew it I had a full range of paint from all different companies.

Buying a set of paints will only save you a little cash, but I'd bet that the big sets will include paints you will never really touch so you aren't actually saving any money buying them.

If you really want to go the paint route on Amazon then I will admit that I did in fact buy these sets when I was starting painting on a set of Zombicide minis:

u/VicVox72 · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

Perfectly fitting SEs -- you wish. The sleeves are about 2mm too short... I tried "double bagging" them by having a second SE sleeve the other way round -- but then you actually start having weird refraction light issues and cannot read the cards all that well anymore.

Anyway, at own peril: these are what I am using:



For the Locations, I am using these:

and those are perfect


For the FA , WPs, etc, ..

u/beigemore · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

Yes, the entire 1.5 core sleeved with official KDM sleeves (thin/penny sleeves) fits pretty easily.

u/insert_unique_userid · 2 pointsr/KingdomDeath

If you’re interested in being able to put sleeves gear cards in a binder, you might want to check these out. I sleeve mine in Docsmagic and the sleeved gear cards fit inside the pockets very well.

u/Duelknives · 2 pointsr/KingdomDeath

This is what we've been using and it works just fine:

There's also a guy on patreon named Fen that has a bunch of reference files for abilities, disorders, fighting arts and the like sized the same as gear cards. You can have them printed up at that make playing cards site.

We just have our gear grids in a regular binder. I can post a picture later of what it all looks like if you want to see.

u/Diaptomus · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

The mini's aren't too difficult to build, though I understand it can be overwhelming. There are official build guides ( To get started on building you'll need 3 things:

  • Plastic Glue
  • Clippers
  • Files

    You don't need those exact ones, those are just examples. The most difficult model was the Phoenix probably, but some, like the antelope, are only like 5 pieces.
u/toomanyminis · 2 pointsr/KingdomDeath

Is it in a tube like toothpaste, but smaller? Viscous gel? If so, id recommend getting another type - either a brush-on that comes in a glass bottle, or one that has a small metal applicatir tube. My favorites are testors in the black bottle, and games workshop.


u/xyals · 2 pointsr/KingdomDeath

Would this be a good choice? I was reading up on and they recommended the citadel clippers and GW thin glue. However, this was the closest thing I could find on amazon. Alsow what about these clippers?

u/poilsoup2 · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

You could use these as well. Some unwarranted advice though: Since the gear cards arent shuffle or anything I decided to keep them in 2x2 BCW coin pages and put them in a binder so they are really easy to sort through

u/JMG021283 · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

Not rounded sadly, but might be able to overshoot them. (52x52) - I think actual dimensions measure more like 53x53, possibly 53.5x53.5.

u/rkba260 · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

Pin the SA...

Use a small drill bit with a hand chuck and drill up into the hooves. Then drill corresponding holes in the base. Clip off sections of a paperclip, inject glue into holes, insert paperclips, attach model to base and let sit.

Suggest doing the same for the Phoenix model.

It all sounds hard, but takes literally 5 minutes. And here's a decent [hand drill set] ( that would work fine.

u/aVaultDweller · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

I currently use the testors black bottle glue. It's a very thin product and is easily applied in small amounts through a very thin steel tube applicator tip. The red twin pack glue is a thick gel that is a bit more unwieldy to apply. It's been years since i've used the thick gel type and I recomend using the black bottle stuff. It's the type of glue that will melt the plastic and create a permanent bond.

Reading the packaging a little closer it looks like the black bottle now uses a plastic applicator tip. This model master version (still Testors) has the metal tip, which I like.

Games Workshop has a glue that is the same as the black bottle Testors/model master but the the GW bottle isn't as good and the applicator tube can pull out of the bottle on you if you're not careful.

u/takeic · 5 pointsr/KingdomDeath

Plastic is fairly soft. As long as you're not trying to cut too close to the model anything with a sharp edge will work. Just make sure the blades are thin enough to work in between pieces. I'm using a Xuron.

u/Aviticus_Dragon · 9 pointsr/KingdomDeath

From someone who has never put together a miniature model before KDM, it wasn't that bad actually. Some models are a pain in the ass due to how small the pieces are, and fitting into your fingers.

Most of the models are pretty straightforward. You can use vibrant lantern ( to find how to put together any models that the official KDM website doesn't have.

The armor kits take a little bit more in figuring out how they are supposed to go. Armor kits can make up to 4 survivors, and you can mix and match gear so it's really up to you how to decide to build them.

Also, if you aren't painting them, the stuff below is all you'll need:

Pacer Technology (Zap) Zap-A-Gap Adhesives, 1/2 oz

Professional 8 PCS Gundam Model Tools Kit

u/TheRussianHD · 1 pointr/KingdomDeath

I recommend Tamiya, basically the same effect as any other plastic cement, but the bottle has a little brush in the cap which I have found to be much more convenient for application. Specifically, the brush allows you to be much more precise and does not have the possibility of excess glue running down the model.

also there were a couple parts that didn't sit fully flush after our initial gluing

we used tamiya extra thin cement and after letting it sit for a little bit we simply applied a little more glue to the offending crack (one instance was the arm holding the spear) then gently pushed it where it needed to be and held it for 20 seconds or so

I think when we get Allison I'll take pictures at different steps

Welcome to the world of moldmaking. I've had moderate success using this method:

You'll need Instant Mold - a low temp plastic that hot water will make maleable.

And Milliput - a 2 part putty.

Put the Instant Mold in hot water, let it soften. Pull it out and press your base into it. Hold it under cold water so it 'hardens'. Peel out your base and you'll have a negative mold. Use the Putty to fill the negative mold, let it harden overnight and then pull out the hardened putty base. It'll probably need some cleanup around the edges but you're done.

God that’s an ugly url, I hope that works. Or search for Alumilite mini kit. Came with enough to make the silicone mold (only enough for one shot, I made a bit of a mess with it, but it’s functional), and 8oz of resin mix. As I’m using only 15ml of resin per 4 base copies, I think the mold will get destroyed before I use up the resin. Personally picked up the kit on a whim while walking through Hobby Lobby.
