The Dark Age Chronicles Return.

DarkAgeChronicles_CoverStJohn

We’ve been posting quite a bit recently about tournaments – the March to Immortality Tournament System, the Immortals tournament itself, and so on. You might even be forgiven for thinking that competitive play is all we care about, but that is certainly not the case. We love that we have developed a very tight set of rules that can be played in a competitive setting, but we are also fans of more casual and narrative play.

A few years ago, we released a pretty sizable document called Dark Age Chronicles: Forsaken that contained special scenarios for each of the Forsaken sub-factions, along with some special “named character” versions of Forsaken unit leaders. Well, although it has taken us a little while to revisit this format in a slightly modified manner, we have returned...

April Releases are approaching…

AirCaste_FactionStarter1

Originally we had hoped to unleash our April releases last Friday, but with the warehouse move finally settling down, and various changes at our new facility being ironed out, we felt it would be better to wait another week. Our packers have been incredibly busy not only packing the big orders heading to our UK and Russian distributors, but getting ready for the release of our new unit boxes.

As new releases this month (released on Friday, April 28), we have the Dragyri Air Caste Faction Starter Set (above – $60), and the last release of the Shadow Caste (and almost one of our final releases in a blister pack), the Vespa (below – $16.99).

Don’t forget too that our Forsaken and Outcast boxes are released this week (Friday, April 28). For a look at all the Forsaken boxes, click HERE...

Unboxing-PTG1

A few of you loyal fans have been asking if we’ll see any releases for March (as we usually try to get them out around the middle to the month). Well, hopefully this post will give you an idea of what we have releasing next Friday, March 24th!

That’s right, we have Path To Glory, our very first 2-player starter set for Dark Age! We are incredibly excited for you to get your hands on this, and for you to use it as the great tool it is to recruit even more Samarians to the cause.

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.

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...
