Paint Spl’Attr – Dragyri Fire Caste

October 25, 2016 Hobby  No comments

Paint Spl’Attr is an irregular series of articles designed to help you get your Dark Age miniatures painted quickly and well and boost the look of your forces on the tabletop.



The Dragyri have been on Samaria longer than any other race, brought to its surface by the Altegrahns who were once their masters. Now, millennia later, the Dragyri are finally coming together to fight the common enemies that they find across the parched lands.

Dave painted up this Pyre model to add to his Fire Caste collection, and wanted to focus on pale skin and the sharp edges of the armor. We hope you like the results shown here.

Throughout this article we’ll refer to various paint colors from both the Vallejo and Army Painter ranges...

What? Out of Stock?

October 17, 2016 CommunityNew Releases  No comments


Sometimes you discover things are going a little better than you thought they were. This is one of those times.

We were not completely prepared for the number of you that would be clamoring for the new Dragyri Book and Shadow Caste Faction Starter.

We air-freighted what seemed to us to be a reasonable amount of the Dragyri Book to the Atlanta warehouse so that we could be ready for release, with the remainder of the books to be sea-freighted afterwards, arriving in plenty of time to continue supply uninterrupted. Thanks to your enthusiasm, we are now scrambling to see if we can get more books air-freighted to meet your demands.

Similarly, our Shadow Caste Faction Starters went faster than expected. We have the materials to create more, *except for* the Lesser Spiderlings...

Loot and Fortune!

“Whatever it is, Cap’n,” Roan swiveled his chair away from the navigator’s console and gestured to the holo-image floating above his station, “it’s huge.”

“Give me a full wake scan,” Captain Jake Flay nodded to the twins, Karol and Schoeller, sitting nearby at the electronics pillar in the center of the bridge. “What is that big, bad beastie?”

“Aye,” they answered in unison.

“Three parsecs from portside, come about rimward,” Suzy Belle, first mate of the Long Haul and frequent paramour of the captain himself, ordered. Her eye for piracy was second only to Jake Flay on board this ship, and she could sense a truly big score in the numbers flashing across her datapad as the information fed from the particle sweep of their potential target’s engine wash...

We are proud to present the September Releases for Dark Age!

First of all we have the wonderful new character for the Kukulkani – Ixchel, The Nocturnal Mother. Ixchel is the rightful leader of the Samarian crusade, but her position was usurped by quetzal when the Cult of the Moon Goddess were trapped in the ziggurat after the mysterious destruction of the engines. Ixchel and her followers have released dug their way out of their chambers and she now stands ready to complete the mission of the Kukulkani on Samaria.

You can now purchase Ixchel HERE.


Along with Ixchel, we get to see the Coatlanak, the adolescent forms of the great feathered serpents, the Coatlai! Coatlanaks are subjected to intense behavioral training by the war priests to follow instruction, even in the heated chaos of b...

It has been quite a long time coming, but we now have a map for the world of Samaria!

We are currently having this map printed in poster form and we’ll be releasing it later this year, but we just couldn’t wait to show you all this excellent rendering of our rich world.

We felt the best way to show it off was to talk with the guys at Beasts of War, and have them do a little bit of lovely animation. Bryan Steele sits down, via Skype, with Justin and talks through the creation of this excellent map and the depth of the world. You can check out their interview in the BOW Weekender, linked via the graphic below.


Our thanks also go to Matt Weaver for all the hard work he put into creating this wonderful addition to the background of Samaria...

Paint Spl’Attr – Kukulkani

August 22, 2016 Hobby  No comments

Paint Spl’Attr is an irregular series of articles designed to help you get your Dark Age miniatures painted quickly and well and boost the look of your forces on the tabletop.



Although they were once instantly recognizable as humans, the Kukulkani have been evolved over the millennia of their service to Kukulkan. Even the lowliest of servants is technomantically augmented in some way, and death in the service of the great Coatl is not always as final as it might seem.

Dave recently painted up this Living Ancestor model, and wanted to focus on the apparently shifting nature of the substances many Kukulkani are imbued with. To that end, he wanted to see the gold of the model’s hands blend into the blue of his arms and so on...

COMMUNITY FEATURE – Rich Blondel’s great terrain!

August 18, 2016 Community  No comments

Desert and Rocks!

In our very first Community Feature, we took a look at Rich Blondel’s CORE collection. Now Rich is back with a look at some of his Dark Age terrain, and some words on how he built and painted it all.


” Greetings, Samarians.

I am happy to be able to show you all my Dark Age gaming table! I wanted something that looks very natural and would be easy to make, I didn’t want to sink a lot of money in this project either, so I’m presenting a photo tutorial for a cheap board that will look (I hope) realistic.

• I bought two wooden boards, each 4’x2′

• I took some used cork noticeboards and tore them up around the edges. I glued the cork down to the boards, and kept the pieces aligned pretty well with the edges of the board...
