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...

Are you ready for the November Releases? We are!

Last month’s releases were quite successful – so much so we ran out of Shadow Caste Faction Starter boxes, more are coming, as soon as we receive the Spiderlings! Now, on to some more wonderful Dragyri releases. This month we have some new models for the Shadow Caste and some resculpts for the Ice Caste, Air Caste, and Fire Caste (the Sling Slaves can be used by all three).

Here’s a rundown of the releases (click on the names to take you right through to the webstore):

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:

Paint Spl’Attr – Dragyri Fire Caste

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.

DRAGYRI FIRE CASTE – PYRE – PAINTED BY DAVE TAYLOR

pyre-finished

The Dragyri have been on Samaria longer than any other race, brought to its surface by the Altegrahns who were once their masters. Now, millennia later, the Dragyri are finally coming together to fight the common enemies that they find across the parched lands.

Dave painted up this Pyre model to add to his Fire Caste collection, and wanted to focus on pale skin and the sharp edges of the armor. We hope you like the results shown here.

Throughout this article we’ll refer to various paint colors from both the Vallejo and Army Painter ranges...
