Community Feature – Rich Blondel’s CORE

June 27, 2016 CommunityHobby  No comments

There has been a great resurgence in activity in the Dark Age community over the last six months or so, and we’ve been seeing quite a lot of wonderful models being painted by hobbyists around the world! One such hobbyist is Richard Blondel from France. He has painted some fantastic stuff, and we’ll be sure to share more of it in the future. But for now, it’s over to Rich:

“Here is my CORE army, there is actually 1000 PTS (I use a Menial Bot as Spartan Menial). I wanted a “tabletop+” paint level for my miniatures, so that I could get playing quickly, because my friends and I have a rule where we only play with fully painted models.

I primed all the models in white and used Games Workshop paints. I’ll quickly explain how I painted each unit of my CORE army.

Wrap Up! – the Kukulkani Kaachika Feature

June 22, 2016 New Releases  No comments

DA-Kaachikav2

We recently ran a series on our Dark Age Facebook page, focused on one of the new Kukulkani units, the deadly and lithe Kaachika. Rather than letting all that fade away, We figured you’d like to see it live here on the website in some sort of digest form.

Welcome to Wrap Up!

On the Monday we showed off the concept art for the Kaachika, very cool stuff indeed.

On the Tuesday we gave you the story behind the Kaachika, “reprinted” here.

The Kaachika are warriors who have set aside their war clubs to join the Moon Goddess openly. Now that Ixchel and the Cult of the Moon are on the rise, a number of Kukulkan’s warriors have grown in confidence, and have stepped away from Quetzol’s crusade to join the Great Mother...

We are very lucky to have a great community of Dark Age hobbyists. People who are dedicated to the game and the story and the miniatures, and who love to show the game to everyone they meet. Some of our veteran hobbyists are willing to take that enthusiasm a step further, and one of them is even willing to drive across half the continental United States to challenge someone to a game.

David Moffit has been playing Dark Age for a very long time, so long he thinks he remembers a time before the Abandonment. Moffit loves Dark Age so much he regularly plays larger than usual games, busting out up to 4,000 points a side! Well, last summer he started a little campaign, in an effort to get to meet Dark Age enthusiasts across the country...

Paint Spl’attyr – Forsaken

June 6, 2016 Hobby  No comments

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

Forsaken – Bane – by Dave Taylor

Bane-Final

The backbone of the Forsaken military forces are the Banes. As the most numerous troops, I figured this would be a great place to start. The black cloak and clothing can also be found on several models across the Forsaken range, like the Ravages and St. John’s Faithful. This approach can even be helpful for troops like Coils, Firestorms, and St. Mark’s Shades.

Throughout this article we’ll refer to various paint colors from both the Vallejo and Army Painter ranges. These are typically available from your FLGS, or through our webstore...

Paint Spl’Attyr – Ice Caste Dragyri

May 17, 2016 Hobby  No comments

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

Ice Caste Dragyri – Frostbite – painted by Dave Taylor

For this model I decided to break a little from the excellent studio miniature color scheme and present a brighter, more polished metal accented with the crisp blues. But the first stage was to paint the large expanses of Dragyri flesh.

IceCaste-1

To help understand where the highlights and shadows would fall on the model, I first primed it all over with a black primer. Once that was dry, I sprayed the model with a white primer from a raised angle (about 30 degrees) to create shaded areas on the model.

Throughout this article we’ll refer to various paint colors fr...
