Objectives! – Warsenal have been hard at work.

We are very excited with the new scenarios in the 2017 Master Rules book and the 2017-18 MTI document. There are a few new approaches and a very cool new size of objective for the Caravan Control scenario (3’x5′). You may have also noticed that we reworked the iconography for all of the factions and sub-factions for the Master Rules. Our graphics guy, Jeff Yu, put in a lot of work and has created some lovely icons that we are quite proud of.

While we were working on all of these things, we were talking with the guys at Warsenal. Bill and Jay and the team loved the ideas we had, and came up with a few of their own along the way. Now these ideas have been made concrete (well, acrylic and MDF) and are available for purchase by you, the dedicated Dark Age gamer!

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...

The March To Immortality begins anew

With the 2017 Immortals Tournament now in the bag, and the 2017 Master Rules book out in the wild, it is time to unleash the 2017-18 March to Immortality (MTI) Tournament document onto the world!

This document is the official, CMON-approved, Dark Age tournament format for the next 12 months (until the 2018 Immortals event), and provides an excellent base for all event organizers to start from. You can run a tournament using this document with no changes, OR you can adapt it to suit your needs (running team/doubles tournaments etc). Just remember to provide all details to your players before the event.

You can go HERE to download the PDF, read through it, and get started on playing through the scenarios.

Next week we’ll do a little feature on some of the great new terrain and objective ma...

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.

Wow, what an incredibly cool and very hectic weekend at CMON Expo.

We certainly had a lot of moving parts in play, and not all of them have continued to move (but they will soon).

The focus of much of the show for us, however, was the 2017 Immortals Tournament for Dark Age. We had 26 players in the field, many of whom had travelled considerable distances – Boston, New York, Chicago, Las Vegas. There was a great spread of armies that faced off across the ruined landscape of Samaria, covering all major factions. All players acquitted themselves well through the initial three rounds of the tournament. At that point, the top 4 players (all undefeated) went on to the semi-finals...

Dark Age 2017 Master Rules!

DAG0014_2017_Master_Rule_Book

Our new, 2017 Master Rules have arrived!

Soon they will be available in our webstore for purchase, but we knew you couldn’t wait. We’ve been wrestling with the PDF file and the website all day, and have had no luck getting the massive awesomeness that is the 2017 Master Rules to go up via our normal dropdown menu.

So, we have uploaded the document to a Dropbox folder set aside just for this purpose. Click HERE to find and download the (26MB) 2017 Master Rules.

We’ll continue to work to put it into the normal spot on the site, but this should work until then.

Cheers
The Dark Age Team

It is a little over a week until the start of the CMON Expo, and on Saturday May 13, it’s the the awesome Dark Age Immortals tournament!

In all the hustle and bustle of the event preparation, it seems that a message has been confused/muddled/misplaced, and it concerns the idea of a “painting requirement” for the Immortals tournament. This message to to clear up any confusion.

There IS a painting requirement for the Immortals Tournament at CMON Expo 2017. This means that all players are required to field models that are painted. This is our premier event for the year, so we want it looking as good as possible. We are also all adult enough to understand what constitutes painted. Base coats are absolutely fine, bare models or primer only are not...

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...

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...
