The March To Immortality begins anew

IMG_6706

With the 2017 Immortals Tournament now in the bag, and the 2017 Master Rules book out in the wild, it is time to unleash the 2017-18 March to Immortality (MTI) Tournament document onto the world!

This document is the official, CMON-approved, Dark Age tournament format for the next 12 months (until the 2018 Immortals event), and provides an excellent base for all event organizers to start from. You can run a tournament using this document with no changes, OR you can adapt it to suit your needs (running team/doubles tournaments etc). Just remember to provide all details to your players before the event.

You can go HERE to download the PDF, read through it, and get started on playing through the scenarios.

Next week we’ll do a little feature on some of the great new terrain and objective ma...

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...

15203283_10154633330125539_7088168117754597537_n

It is always wonderful to hear tales of enthusiastic communities around the globe putting together events (from demo days to campaigns to  full-blown tournaments), and it is exciting to see folks who have been championing Dark Age take that all one step further.

We’ve been talking with Gareth Anderson on and off for awhile now, and we are very pleased to be able to announce a great focal event that he is running in May 2017 – King of the Wasteland (Dark Age UK Nationals)!

Here’s a link to the event listing on Facebook:

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:

COMMUNITY FEATURE – Rich Blondel’s great terrain!

Desert and Rocks!

In our very first Community Feature, we took a look at Rich Blondel’s CORE collection. Now Rich is back with a look at some of his Dark Age terrain, and some words on how he built and painted it all.

” Greetings, Samarians.

I am happy to be able to show you all my Dark Age gaming table! I wanted something that looks very natural and would be easy to make, I didn’t want to sink a lot of money in this project either, so I’m presenting a photo tutorial for a cheap board that will look (I hope) realistic.

• I bought two wooden boards, each 4’x2′

• I took some used cork noticeboards and tore them up around the edges. I glued the cork down to the boards, and kept the pieces aligned pretty well with the edges of the board...

COMMUNITY – A Dark Age Player Finder is underway!

DAPlayerMap

We are very excited to announce that one of our community champions, Jay Ryan, has been putting together the beta-version of a player finder over the last 24 hours. It currently requires you to submit basic details via a pinned post on the Facebook fan group Dark Age: Samaria Reborn, but as Jay further refines it, that may change.

So, if you are already a member of the Dark Age: Samaria Reborn page, then head on over there and check out the pinned post. If you aren’t, please click on the link HERE, and request to join.

If you aren’t a Facebook kind of person, we ask for your patience. We’ll work towards including you very soon.

Community Feature – Carl Tees’ Kukulkani Ah Chu Kuk

We recently represented the first of our Community Features (Rich Blondel’s CORE army). It is now time for our second Community Feature. With the Kukulkani Web Update just around the corner, we thought it would be best to show off one of the best Kukulkani models we’ve seen from the community in quite a while. Carl Tees recently painted up this Ah Chu Kuk and we loved it so much me asked him to write a few words about the process he went through (and while it’s not actual magic, it certainly seems very close). We’ll hand it over to Carl…

Carl: This model is the Ah Chu Kuk from the Kukulkani faction and I’ve been asked to share my thoughts on how I approached painting it.

Community Feature – Rich Blondel’s CORE

There has been a great resurgence in activity in the Dark Age community over the last six months or so, and we’ve been seeing quite a lot of wonderful models being painted by hobbyists around the world! One such hobbyist is Richard Blondel from France. He has painted some fantastic stuff, and we’ll be sure to share more of it in the future. But for now, it’s over to Rich:

“Here is my CORE army, there is actually 1000 PTS (I use a Menial Bot as Spartan Menial). I wanted a “tabletop+” paint level for my miniatures, so that I could get playing quickly, because my friends and I have a rule where we only play with fully painted models.

I primed all the models in white and used Games Workshop paints. I’ll quickly explain how I painted each unit of my CORE army.
