End of the month looking at this. Stuff that gets released is usually available for trade orders at around the same time


Brilliant, thanks for that

Some of these miniatures look fantastic. Hoping to get some of the 'big bad' things from here that the Infernal Overlords failed KS didn't ever supply..


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Am just looking at some of the miniature galleries for Darklands on the Element Games website (have found it better than the official website to get a good view of the different existing minis and faction varieties. (http://elementgames.co.uk/wargames-and-miniatures/wargames-and-miniatures-by-manufacturer/mierce-miniatures/darklands)

All I can say is, oh. my. God. The miniatures are just absolutely stupendous, how is this game not at the top of selling lists? Even without the game and rules have already picked out several that are going to be in the painting queue.

OK, I'm a sucker for models with two-handed hammers/maces.

(And models with pumpkin heads too, oddly enough.)

And I was already in for...just about everything Atalantean too.

This one is great, and will make a great companion piece for Original Kretos!

I'm afraid they'll get me back again with the crab men.

Debating whether or not I need the giant crab lobster thing as well.

On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

Was taking a look at some battle reports from Darklands on the Mierce forums (.. I was only looking there, am not going to join, honest! )
then noticed they dated back from 2014 (!)

I take it is this the previous version of the rules, which will be superceded by the new hardbook release? Is there much difference between the versions of the games?

They're the quickstarter rules, version 0.1 if you like. They've had the main rules available as a download, but under development for the past few years. For more recent reports check out:

http://brotherhoodoftheraven.blogspot.co.uk
http://thebeerwaaagh.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/darklands-battle-report-brythoniaid-vs.html

They're played with the recent rules.

Those crab 'men' are on 80mm bases, standing 70mm high!

They're...rather big!

EDIT:

Oh, and Highlord?

There's already been mention of...Fish-Men!

And...Angler-Men?

So, I ask you...can Shark-Men be far behind?

EDIT 2:

I asked for you Highlord - I asked for us all!

Are you ready...?

Creator Mierce Miniatures 25 minutes ago

@Alpharius - yes, shark-men and whale-men are on the table. Anything semiaquatic is, and if we ever do Darkseas... who knows?


Woooo!!!

Love the huge crab and the Peat Beasts, I'll be sure to pick them up for Mordheim scenarios when they show up on the webstore in a decade or so

Update #6

Apr 26 2016
£22,500 - Choloch, Servile Warrior of Dis
0 Comments
1 like

What's this? Two Infernii monsters? Well, why not... so here's Choloch, a mighty Servile Warrior of Dis, set at £22,500 to unlock!





Choloch is based upon the awesome Malacant and is an Elite Warchief of the Infernii, able to lead whole armies of demons of Infernus and, of course, their mortal allies the Byzantii!

Increase your pledge by £37 to purchase Choloch, who will only be produced in resin. Choloch is a SMALL MONSTER and so can also be included as a monster within in the FIVE MIGHTY MONSTERS reward!

Watch out for more MIGHTY MONSTERS soon!

Well considering that the Mierce miniatures show the anatomical organs, especially the Infernii, you could check if he actually is.

Hopefully when everything gets organised and not so...chaotic the game can finally take hold.

It says him in the size description. Maybe it's a Slaaneshi demon with both sets of organs.


All these demons and the giant skeleton are making this one hard for me to stay out of. I don't think my wallet can handle it.

Got the rulebook and....well, for first impressions, this is the best-illustrated VCR repair manual I've ever read.

"The 75mm gun is firing. The 37mm gun is firing, but is traversed round the wrong way. The Browning is jammed. I am saying "Driver, advance." and the driver, who can't hear me, is reversing. And as I look over the top of the turret and see twelve enemy tanks fifty yards away, someone hands me a cheese sandwich."

I can't think of any other document I've read that refers me to "section 6.34.1.2.1", or where the summary of a fairly common action (fleeing) has seventeen steps, all in very precise, very dry computer programming language.

Maybe if I read a quickstart or light version it'd help, but right now, this seems like the clunkiest (as distinct from "most complex") system released this decade.
