Dragyri_IceCaste-200x200

Aaron Bohm gives us his insight into what it takes to win Dark Age‘s greatest tournament: Immortals. With the prize being adding yourself to the game, players want to know any sort of edge they can.

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.

Unboxing-PTG1

We are very excited! Last week we were able to get our hands on two advance copies of the upcoming 2-player starter set – PATH TO GLORY! We had them on display at the Las Vegas Open, and Bryan Steele has just finished up a Facebook Live event on our Dark Age FB page. You can check it out HERE.

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.

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.
