    Newbie saying hello and obligatory questions!

    Hi all,

    I'm looking to get into Dark Age, had a couple of test games and really enjoyed it, nice mechanics and minis are great. I've been digging around trying to understand which book is which and was wondering if someone could confirm.

    2013 Core Rules - Is this the latest rulebook/same as the PDF in the downloads section?

    Apocalypse Core - This an older version?

    Apocalypse Forcelists - Which forcelists are in this one? All apart from CORE and triple K?

    Is there any game rules in Devastation and Conflagration or is just forcelists and fluff?

    Thanks in advance!

    Correct.

    First off, this is the most useful book if you are looking for fluff and backstory, both on the world and factions in general as well as on individual models.

    It contains the states of the Forsaken, Bounty Hunters, Outcast, Dragyri (Not Fire), Skarrd (not Metamorphosis), Heretic, and Brood. However, most of these stats have been changed. Seek the websites "Download/Cards" section for updated stats.

    Very minimal in the sense of "rules." For example, Devastation introduces 80mm bases and BL (3) templates, Conflagration introduces "Fiery" terrain, etc. These mostly have forcelists. Devastation has Core and Skarrd Metamorphosis Cult (and Phadras and Maximo), Conflagration has Kukulkani and Dragyri Fire Caste. Both also have fluff and backstory on said factions/models.

    If you bought Skarrd and Forsaken, that then begs the question - have you looked into the Heretics yet? They are composed of specific models from the two factions you just bought, and just have different unit cards for some of the specific models.
