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.
Step Two: Opening the box, you’ll find the the first of the paper product, the Quick Start Rules. This set get’s you going straight away, explaining the concepts and mechanics of Dark Age in a straightforward way.
Step Three: After the Quick Start Rules, there’s the Path to Glory scen...Read More

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.
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.

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):
Summoned from the very depths of terror itself, the smoky shadow that is the Umbra is brought forth to spread fear and discord in enemy ranks...Read More

Ice Caste Dragyri – Frostbite – painted by Dave Taylor
For this model I decided to break a little from the excellent studio miniature color scheme and present a brighter, more polished metal accented with the crisp blues. But the first stage was to paint the large expanses of Dragyri flesh.
To help understand where the highlights and shadows would fall on the model, I first primed it all over with a black primer. Once that was dry, I sprayed the model with a white primer from a raised angle (about 30 degrees) to create shaded areas on the model.
Throughout this article we’ll refer to various paint colors fro...Read More
