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.

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...

UNBOXING! The Path To Glory 2-player Starter Set

Unboxing-PTG1

We thought you’d also like a chance to look through the box in a more sedate fashion, so here it is.

Step One: The box (above) shows off the two opposing forces: St Isaac and his robots against the Ice Caste Dragyri.

Before the Abandonment, Isuza Dynamics was working on a complete, automated, terra-forming package. The robots of this C.O.R.E. package were designed to follow various “build and replicate” protocols, all while seeking out bio-mass for their entropic cell batteries. Since it was switched back on, the C.O.R.E...

Paint Spl’Attr – Ice Caste Dragyri Crystals

crystalstease

We’ve always been very impressed with the way that the team at Big Child Creatives have painted our wonderful Dark Age miniatures. With the recent release of the Dragyri book, along with the unveiling of the Shadow Caste, and numerous resculpts for the Air and Ice Caste, we’ve been lucky enough to snag quite a few painting tutorials from them. Here is the latest: crystals for the Ice Caste Dragyri.

Preparation

crystals1

To craft these crystals you can just sharpen a resin sprue or something similar, carefully using a sharp hobby knife, as if you were carving a stake. Make a couple of them and proceed to place the crystals in the base.

To start, paint a base coat in a dark blue. One or two coats will be sufficient to obtain good coverage.
