Objectives! – Warsenal have been hard at work.

Image converted using ifftoany

We are very excited with the new scenarios in the 2017 Master Rules book and the 2017-18 MTI document. There are a few new approaches and a very cool new size of objective for the Caravan Control scenario (3’x5′). You may have also noticed that we reworked the iconography for all of the factions and sub-factions for the Master Rules. Our graphics guy, Jeff Yu, put in a lot of work and has created some lovely icons that we are quite proud of.

While we were working on all of these things, we were talking with the guys at Warsenal. Bill and Jay and the team loved the ideas we had, and came up with a few of their own along the way. Now these ideas have been made concrete (well, acrylic and MDF) and are available for purchase by you, the dedicated Dark Age gamer!

The 2017 Master Rules are here, and a lot of other great stuff too.

NEW RULES

We have been diligently working away on these rules for the last year or so, running them through lots of playtesting with our teams out in the wider world. We are very happy with a lot of the central Dark Age rules as they are, but there were a few things that we needed to evolve, to adapt, or to replace. We always strive for clarity in our rules writing – aiming definitely for ‘rules as written’ over ‘rules as intended’ – and the 2017 Master Rules no doubt hits closest to that mark of any of the previous editions.

It is currently available on our site for FREE DOWNLOAD and the printed book is available in our webstore.

Dark Age 2017 Master Rules!

DAG0014_2017_Master_Rule_Book

Our new, 2017 Master Rules have arrived!

Soon they will be available in our webstore for purchase, but we knew you couldn’t wait. We’ve been wrestling with the PDF file and the website all day, and have had no luck getting the massive awesomeness that is the 2017 Master Rules to go up via our normal dropdown menu.

So, we have uploaded the document to a Dropbox folder set aside just for this purpose. Click HERE to find and download the (26MB) 2017 Master Rules.

We’ll continue to work to put it into the normal spot on the site, but this should work until then.

Cheers
The Dark Age Team

The Dragyri Lost Characters, and a little extra.

WEBDragyriLostCharacters

A few weeks back, we teased you a little with this photo, and Bryan Steele went on to talk about the return of the Earth Caste, alongside the return of Jza’mhi, the Fury Rekindled (that’s Jza’mhi on the right).

These two, very cool models will be released very soon – Friday May 12, to be exact – and we are very excited to see them take to the tabletop. When they are released we’ll be posting a Web Update introducing the Earth Caste to the current world of Dark Age. This update will have the cards for Jza’mhi (who is actually the former Arbiter of the Fire Caste, long thought dead, killed by Rath’zhi), and the rest of his Earth Caste friends, and a chunk of new background on the Earth Caste, their units, and the slow awakening they are undergoing.

But until that drops (amidst a lot of othe...

The April Releases are here!

April_DA_Newsletter

It is that time of the month again (well, just a little bit later than we would have liked) and we have three new releases for Dark Age. Cick on the names of the releases below to take you through to the webstore.

dag02002_aircaste_factionstarter_blueback

DAG02002   Air Caste Faction Starter – $59.99

Description

The Air Caste are currently ascendant in the Dragyri social order, with Yovanka having won the position of Grand Arbiter. This has not, however, altered the way the Air Caste do things. Their all-female Trueborn force continues to move like the wind and strike with the force of a brutal storm. Their hit-and-run tactics are legendary. It must be a resilient commander who can keep his troops stead in the face of such an onslaught.

Features

  • Highly detailed resin miniatures.
  • This 500-point Dragyri Air Caste Faction Sta...

April Releases are approaching…

AirCaste_FactionStarter1

Originally we had hoped to unleash our April releases last Friday, but with the warehouse move finally settling down, and various changes at our new facility being ironed out, we felt it would be better to wait another week. Our packers have been incredibly busy not only packing the big orders heading to our UK and Russian distributors, but getting ready for the release of our new unit boxes.

As new releases this month (released on Friday, April 28), we have the Dragyri Air Caste Faction Starter Set (above – $60), and the last release of the Shadow Caste (and almost one of our final releases in a blister pack), the Vespa (below – $16.99).

Don’t forget too that our Forsaken and Outcast boxes are released this week (Friday, April 28). For a look at all the Forsaken boxes, click HERE...
