The Immortals are almost here!

DA-ImmortalsGraphic

It is a little over a week until the start of the CMON Expo, and on Saturday May 13, it’s the the awesome Dark Age Immortals tournament!

In all the hustle and bustle of the event preparation, it seems that a message has been confused/muddled/misplaced, and it concerns the idea of a “painting requirement” for the Immortals tournament. This message to to clear up any confusion.

There IS a painting requirement for the Immortals Tournament at CMON Expo 2017. This means that all players are required to field models that are painted. This is our premier event for the year, so we want it looking as good as possible. We are also all adult enough to understand what constitutes painted. Base coats are absolutely fine, bare models or primer only are not...

ADEPTICON – Crazy times!

AdeptiCon 2017 wrapped up just over a week ago, but it has taken us that long to get our heads back into some semblance of order after such a hectic event! Sooooooo many things going on, and all of them good for Dark Age. Our numbers were up across the board from last year’s event (which was a great one for us too). Path To Glory was on sale for the first time, we sold a lot of our new Faction Starter Sets, and many blister pegs were empty by there end of the show. We also had almost 100 people participate in the various events that we ran, including highlights such as the 17 people involved in one of the Dark Age “Build & Plays”, 16 players for the 750pt MTI Tournament, and 28 PEOPLE in the 500pt MTI Tournament! Many thanks to event organizers John Sawicki and Aaron Behm!

Here are a few ...

FINALLY!

Canada's_fireworks_at_the_2013_Celebration_of_Light_in_Vancouver,_BC

We are VERY excited to be able to announce that we now have a UK distributor again!

As of yesterday afternoon we completed a deal with DiaCash UK to start to bring Dark Age back into the UK. Obviously this doesn’t mean that the latest products will start appearing on the walls of your local gaming stores by the weekend, and there’ll be a process to go through to get to that stage, but this is the first and biggest hurdle to overcome.

So, if you live in the UK and would like see Dark Age product carried by your local gaming store, then have them contact Paul Scott of DiaCash UK at [email protected]

We are looking forward to working with DiaCash again, and putting together a bundle support for the UK Nationals coming up at the end of May!

Thanks!
The Dark Age team

John will be able to get them sorted. For our UK and European fans, we are still working hard to get a UK distributor...

Community Feature – Rich Blondel’s Prevailers

richprevailers1

We’ve been excited to bring you this article since the first time we saw Rich Blondel working on his Esh. Rich spent quite a bit of time this summer working on his Prevailer collection, and earlier this month sent us these photos and words to let us know how he goes about his Prevailer painting. We hope you enjoy this little holiday treat, and we’ll see you all again next year! Now, over to Rich:

“This time I will show you my favorite faction, the Forsaken Prevailers. From early in my childhood, I have been fascinated by the European Middle Ages, and also really attracted by the stories, books and movies about post apocalyptic universes, that’s why I fell in love when I discovered the Dark Age Prevailers range...

A 2016 Dark Age “State of the Union”

Greetings, fellow Samarians!

2016 has been a pretty wild and crazy ride for Dark Age. We’ve come quite a ways over this year and now stand poised to see some fantastic growth in 2017. While it hasn’t been without its hiccups, 2016 has seen us move quite a few elements forward in a very positive way. 2017 will be our year to bring it all up to speed.

Let’s jump straight into it!

Bryan Steele returns to Dark Age!

Perhaps the biggest boost for Dark Age this year was seeing Bryan Steele return to the CMON team. Bryan used to work for CMON, but had been freelancing for a few years. The opportunity to jump back in on a project he is so passionate about was one he certainly wasn’t able to pass up...

Community Feature – Igor Ivanov’s Fire Caste Dragyri

With all the buzz focusing on the Dragyri, we thought it would be a great idea to amplify that enthusiasm. We reached out to Igor Ivanov, a member of the Dark Age Community who has been incredibly active in the Russian wargaming scene recently. Thanks to Igor’s energy, we should have some of our first regular stockists of Dark Age product in Moscow! In addition to introducing all his friends to Dark Age, Igor has been painting up some beautiful stuff lately, including these lovely Fire Caste models. We’ll hand it over to Igor to tell us more about his warband:
