October is the month where all the scary things come out of the darkness and swamps to feast on the living. And this month’s Dark Age releases certainly fit into that theme. We’ve got a host of new Shadow Caste box sets for you. So that covers the darkness. There’s also the new Brood Faction Starter available. And that covers the swamp. Let’s take a look at what all these new macabre releases consist of.

You Have Been Helping The Brood to Evolve!

Brood_Generic-200x200-withText

It has been roughly 90 days since we released the initial cards for the Beta Brood Official Playtest, and the results have been humbling. You folks (the players) really do have a soft spot for these regenerating beasts of bio-engineered flesh and chitin! With the Brood Faction Starter Box just about to be available to the public and Bryan showing up at this convention or that event with his scary little monsters, it became evident that it was about time to update the Beta Brood Cards to show how much your feedback (emailed to [email protected]) about the Brood actually means to the Dark Age team and design process.

The 2017 Official Brood Beta Rules Document

The Brood have been evolving and genetically reincarnating for centuries, and the rapid escalation of Samarian conflicts in the last few decades has caused the most change in them to be sure. With the promise of a new Dark Age: Brood faction-focused book planned for later 2018, it was decided that we would give the age old Brood faction a rules-facelift before their full new release. Now, as of today, the gaming populace of Dark Age players and fans get to use these new rules officially.

MJB-4-1

Hey everyone!

There’s some new stuff to show off for you today. We’re right around a month out from the new Brood Rules Test release! This update will breathe a whole new life into the most “alive” faction of Dark Age, including some new styles of play, new special rules, and of course new tactical combinations. We know you all are chomping at the bit to get a look at what is coming out, so we thought we’d give you a little teaser to whet those appetites. How about some new sculpt renders and a couple of the new updated stat cards, hmm?

Paint Spl’Attr – Brood

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

Brood – Ratchet – painted by Dave Taylor

Ratchet-Final

In any Brood force, the Ratchets are likely to be the most numerous. Bred as a simple foil to the vast numbers of humans the Brood must face, these bio-constructs are shorter than most other Brood, yet still tower over their typical enemies. This “swamp creature” color scheme is pretty straightforward and evocative of the Brood and can be replicated across many other Brood units.

NOTE: On many of the Brood models, it can be tough to tell which parts are bio-grown chitinous plates, and which parts are grafted on metal armor. We are very happy to leave it to you to decide...
