Elementals, Robots, and Constructs, Oh my! – The Power of the Non-Living Ability

Core_Generic-200x200

In Dark Age, the vast majority of units that see the tabletop battlefields are biological organisms that eat, drink, breathe, and live. This means that the vast majority of miniatures in Dark Age are considered to possess the Living special ability. That is, to say, they are normal, living models. Living models basically play by all the normal rules, and will sometimes trigger specific effects based on the fact they are alive.

EC_ShardSlave

We’re back with Part 2 of our tribute to the oft-overlooked Slaves. The powers that be decided the newer sub-factions, Shadow and Earth Castes, deserved their own section and it’s not hard to see why. For Shadow, they actually don’t employ slaves AT ALL, and instead use a unique combination of refurbished C.O.R.E. models and trained Spiderlings. And as for the newest addition, Earth Caste, well… they play so different from the other factions we just have to take special interest on how they use their likely well-treated slaves.

Winning with The Lesser: Dragyri Slave Tactics, Part 1!

IceCaste_Taskmaster-lowres-CLPD

“Why would you write a tactics article about Dragyri slaves?!” you might ask. Especially since, through the years, these Alteghran scrubs have often been scoffed at as the bottom tier, all-but-unplayable models of Dark Age?

So, how should they be used?
