Paint Spl’Attr – Shadow Caste Dragyri Armor

goliathtease

After a recent chat with José Nuñez, the owner of Big Child Creatives (the wonderful team in Spain that sculpts and paints many of the Dark Age miniatures), he sent us through this great walkthrough of painting the Shadow Caste Dragyri armor. He also sent us details of the way the Big Child team painted the skin for the Shadow Caste. You can check that post out HERE.

In order to make the painting process simple and easy we won´t talk about specific colours of a pre-determined range. Instead of that, we’ll talk about hues (red, blue, yellow…) and tones. You won´t need to have the colors we actually used, but can substitute in those you have to match the ones we show in the mixing section of the photos.

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):

Paint Spl’Attr – Shadow Caste Dragyri Skin

After a recent chat with José Nuñez, the owner of Big Child Creatives (the wonderful team in Spain that sculpts and paints many of the Dark Age miniatures), he sent us through this great walkthrough of painting the Shadow Caste Dragyri skin tone. He also sent us details of the way the Big Child team painted the armor for the Shadow Caste, and some wonderful crystals for an Ice Caste base. We’ll present those to you soon.

In order to make the painting process simple and easy we won´t talk about specific colours of a pre-determined range. Instead of that, we’ll talk about hues (red, blue, yellow…) and tones.

Building in The Shadows

shadowfinder03

The recent release of the mysterious Shadow Caste pulled back the curtain on this not-at-all-pleasant sub-faction of the mighty Dragyri. Tucked in amongst the units are two that will be familiar to many Dark Age players. The Shadow Caste use corrupted C.O.R.E. robots (specifically the Pathfinder and Menials) as other castes use slaves. These robots have had their connection to the C.O.R.E. AI severed and replaced with the dully glowing xenosathic crystals to allow them to be controlled by the Shadow Caste psychogenic manipulators.

While we are waiting for the rest of the Shadow Caste range to be released, we thought we would show you a way to convert the existing C.O.R.E. models to join your new Shadow Caste warband...

What? Out of Stock?

temporarilyoos

Sometimes you discover things are going a little better than you thought they were. This is one of those times.

We were not completely prepared for the number of you that would be clamoring for the new Dragyri Book and Shadow Caste Faction Starter.

We air-freighted what seemed to us to be a reasonable amount of the Dragyri Book to the Atlanta warehouse so that we could be ready for release, with the remainder of the books to be sea-freighted afterwards, arriving in plenty of time to continue supply uninterrupted. Thanks to your enthusiasm, we are now scrambling to see if we can get more books air-freighted to meet your demands.

Similarly, our Shadow Caste Faction Starters went faster than expected. We have the materials to create more, *except for* the Lesser Spiderlings...
