Darklands is a world of war and brutality without end, the world of darkness we inherited - and one that you can help bring to life!

Darklands is a world in which YOU command the armies of man and beast that your ancestors once did for glory, power or simple survival. Fight breathtaking battles on your tabletop with some of the most stunning resin miniatures ever released!

What if dragons really flew and giants really walked the earth? What if berserkers actually were bear-men, man and bear joined together? What if all of the myths and legends we take for granted were real and our ancestors fought against - and with - creatures and beings and realms we thought were nothing more than the fantasies of our uncivilised selves?

Darklands answers all of those questions for you and more. Created by some of the best artists and sculptors in the world and manufactured in the finest quality polyurethane resin in-house by Mierce Miniatures, this is your chance to own the Darklands QuickStarter rules and its first Starter Sets and therefore have the first stepping stone towards playing our forthcoming 30mm scale wargame!

Become your own ancestor and make your own myths and legends!

We're holding this Kickstarter project to able to create the QuickStarter rules (see what we did there?) and the first Starter Sets for Darklands, to enable all of our fans to be a part of its growth from a few nice miniatures to a full-blown wargame.

We've prepared a short gameplay video to get you interested in Darklands  and it shows a few basic game mechanics, so have a look!

The Starter Sets outlined here are either sculpted or ready to be sculpted - we just need a hand from here to bring them to market, and with our proven track record of producing stunning resin miniatures we know we can deliver on time and without hassle.

The QuickStarter Rules and a Starter Set (along with a friend who has a Starter Set) are all you need to play!

We appreciate all of those people who have supported us in the past and, indeed, all of you that will support us in this Kickstarter. Without you, neither Darklands nor Mierce Miniatures would exist! Everyone who backs us in this Kickstarter will have their name mentioned in the QuickStarter rulebook, with a message of thanks!

There's two major pledges to go for - the Infantry Starter Set (£60, approximately $100) or the Monstrous Infantry Starter Set (£80, approximately $125) - but there's eight different variants of them so there's plenty of choice.

All pledges made for any of these Starter Sets (in any combination) will ensure you'll have access to a ton of stretch goals and other offers!

Each Starter Set varies in content from kindred to kindred but all of them include the all-important Darklands QuickStarter Rules and some quite stunning resin miniatures - and, of course, they are a fantastic way to get into Darklands before it's released and still stay friends with your wallet!

Funding Achieved!

So, now that we've achieved our Funding Goal, let's reward you with about a third off some of our most amazing miniatures - increase your pledge by the amount indicated and you can grab these:

Thank you very much guys!
Thank you very much guys!

If you want to keep your pledge in kindred (read: faction), have a look at the kindred symbols on the Starter Sets and the image above (as well any stretch goal images). You can choose additional miniatures for the kindred you've chosen or anything you desire - perhaps for a painting project!

You're not limited in any way by our Kickstarter and you can increase your pledge level by the amounts shown above and choose what you want at checkout when the Kickstarter ends.

Please note, there are no additional shipping fees if you've already chosen a Starter Set!

£15,000 Stretch Goal

Now that we've achieved our funding goal we can unveil our first Stretch Goal, £15,000! Anybody who has pledged for a Starter Set in any form or combinatoin will receive one of the following miniatures, for free:

Please note that these are "fixed" for the Starter Set you want - so, for example, if you go for the Angelcynn Infantry Starter Set, you'll get Meloda.

£25,000 Stretch Goal

All you have to do to get a hold of either Gynroch ap Roch, Kadámastar, Shaaroc, 4x Tarvax Warriors or 3x Troll Warriors is to increase your pledge by £40 ($62)!

Additionally, we've brought in a couple of concepts to show off and increase your pledges for - the awesome Cearl, Werwulf Thegn for the Angelcynn and Carrowek of Carn Dhu on horse for the Ysians. Cearl will be of monstrous infantry size and is a Warchief for Mierce; Carrowek on Horse is, rather obviously, Carrowek on horseback, although you won't believe the size of his horse... and that's not a euphemism! His horse is a normal horse's head with a skull on top, by the way.

Carrowek's sculpt is already in progress and Cearl's will not be far behind. Both will ship at the same time as the Starter Sets for their kindred (so June for Cearl and April for Carrowek on Horse).

Get hold of these crackers at a third off!
Get hold of these crackers at a third off!

Cearl is a Werwulf Thegn - a very furry warchief for the Angelcynn!

Carrowek on Horse is, of course, Carrowek on a horse...

...and here's a WIP of him:

Please note, there are no additional shipping fees if you've already chosen a Starter Set!

£30,000 Stretch Goal

The £25,000 stretch goal is almost achieved and we think it would be nice to reveal the next one, in which we give some free miniatures to those who have pledged for a Starter Set!

Both Ssibyros, Gorgonarchon of Khthon and Geraint Nerthol, Tiern of Cedweli ("Mighty Geraint") are completely new, never-before-seen concepts and with Cearl and Carrowek on Horse represent the next phase of our miniatures line. Ssibyros will be sculpted by Thomas David...

and Geraint's sculptor is Benoît Cosse!

Please note that these are "fixed" for the Starter Set you want - so, for example, if you go for the Angelcynn Infantry Starter Set, you'll get Æthelglyth.

These "free" miniatures will ship with the Starter Set in question, of course and do not incur extra shipping charges.

£35,000 Stretch Goal

We've got two new miniatures to show you: Penda on horse, who will ship in September 2013 I'm afraid (JAG is very busy!) and a mighty new departure for the Khthones - Chysperis, Fídron of Khthon, who stands a massive 162mm to the tip of his tail. He's absolutely HUGE and is the embodiment of Khthon for pretty much all of the Khthones; as such, he's treated reverentially by them and not only because he's blimmin' massive (we'll add him to the scale shots to show you)! Chysperis will ship with the Khthones Starter Set in September 2013.

Here's Penda on horse:

Please note, Cormorágg is Albainn - but the Brythoniaid do ally with that kindred through their northern kingdoms of Gododdin and Rheged, mainly thanks to Cunedda, who founded the kingdom of Gwynedd and retained strong ties with the peoples to the north. Thus, you'll be able to use the Albainn if you're a Brythoniaid player!

Please note, there are no additional shipping fees if you've already chosen a Starter Set!

£40,000 Stretch Goal - Kickstarter Exclusives!

Yesterday was a cracking day of pledging and backing and so we're bringing you the next Stretch Goal a little early to celebrate, especially as it includes two Kickstarter Exclusive miniatures - one of which is free to everyone who has pledged for a Starter Set when we reach £40,000!

That's right, when we get to £40,000, everyone who has pledged for a Starter Set will receive Urbad, Vagrant Oghurithne for free! We are teasing you a little with the artwork silhouette, we know, but when we reach £30,000 we'll unveil the full concept art by Stefan Kopinski. When we get to £35,000 we'll show you the miniature itself, which stands around 68mm tall!

You may be wondering why you'd want Urbad, of course: well, he is an Albainn Sell-Sword and will work for any kindred, which means you can all use him in your hosts. He's a vagrant Oghurithne (basically a wild hill man, a cross between a human and a full-on Oghur) who likes to ply his wares around the lands to make a bit of money and also bang people out that get in his way with his stone mattock. In other words, he's useful!

As well as Urbad, we've decided to have Penda on horse sculpted with his wolf helm on, and whilst he won't be free he's a cracking alternative to the unhelmed Penda - just increase your pledge by £30 to get him!

Why would you want him, you may ask, when Penda without helm is £20? Well, unhelmed Penda on horse's RRP will be £30 and both Penda on horse with Wolf Helm and Urbad will only ever be available during this Kickstarter project - although we do reserve the right to use them as convention-only miniatures or as prizes in the future. Even so, we won't be attending any conventions this year - so you'll have them way ahead of anyone else!

Effectively, they'll be very, very rare - how amazing is that!

Note: if you've already got a Starter Set or have pledged for either Urbad or Penda on horse with Wolf Helm, you can increase your pledge to get more than one of either - that's your perk, having backed us!

To re-iterate: 

Urbad will be free with any Starter Set once we get to £40,000.

You can increase your pledge by £20 to get another Urbad, or £30 for Penda on horse with Wolf Helm, as many times as you wish.

Once we reach £40,000, you can get Urbad as a reward on this Kickstarter for £20 (~$30) if you don't want a Starter Set.

Once we reach £40,000, you can get Penda on horse with Wolf Helm as a reward on this Kickstarter for £30 (~$46) if you don't want a Starter Set. Get pledging guys!

£45,000 Stretch Goal

The Ax-Drune unit and the Duguth unit are five strong with a command group in each and enable you to increase your host if you've pledged for an Angelcynn or Ysian Drune infantry Starter Set. Penda and Carrowek are more than capable of looking after three or four units on their own, and you've some Commanders too thanks to the freebie Stretch Goals!

There might not be anything free here but you can certainly get your hands on some cracking miniatures to go with your Starter Sets!

Please note, there are no additional shipping fees if you've already chosen a Starter Set!

£50,000 Stretch Goal

We've had an awesome couple of days of pledging and we've got to £40,000 very quickly - thanks everyone! - so here's the next stretch goal for £50,000, which shows more free stuff to anyone who has pledged for a Starter Set!

The theme for this one is "Wizards and Standards (mostly)" and there's three never before seen concepts here to keep everyone excited about the future! These three are Cynemon, Wiglere of Mierce for the Angelcynn (concept by Des Hanley); Kjartan of Jylland, Raven Bearer for the Norse; and Mawdred of Carn Dhu, Horn-Drune for the Ysians.

Because our sculptors are already busy we are going to say that these three will be delivered in September 2013, but it may well turn out that they will be done before that date - we'll keep you informed all the way along so that you know.

Here's Cynemon:

Kjartan of Jylland:

Mawdred of Carn Dhu:

The three new 'uns are complemented by Drast the Hunched for the Brythoniaid (he's an Albainn ally), Tundaar and Daachuch for the Fomoraic and the first of our Vras allies for the Ysians - Blunt-Claw, Vras-Lord!

The Khthones pledgers may notice that there's nothing for you guys here, but you've already had more than any other kindred in terms of freebies - Svrill and Ssibyros will be £50 at RRP - so you'll have to be content with that for now ;o)

Apart from the new concepts these "free" miniatures will ship with the Starter Set in question, of course; but none of them will incur extra shipping charges.

£55,000 Stretch Goal

These stretch goals are coming thick and fast and, rather than not have one for over the weekend, we thought we'd get the next one up before finishing and posting the video - especially as it includes three never-before-seen concepts!

Let's talk about the three new concepts. Wulfhere (wolf-he-re, not wolf-heer), Fane-Bearer of Mierce is Penda's son and will inherit the throne of Mierce one day - he's just as warlike as his father, too!

Gamla Bror is a Troll Gothi - a priest of Thor to all intents and purposes - and is very, very old and gnarly. That's the skull of his predecessor on his staff and his hammer is the conduit for the lightning that Thor brings...

Glaun (glyn [y as in eye]) is a Tarwdraig (ta-roo-draig) - a bull-dragon - from Gwaelod and is rather brutal, as you can probably see. He can't fly but he has the remnants of wings on his forelimbs - but he can certainly breathe fire...

Both Wulfhere and Gamla Bror will ship in November 2013; Glaun should ship in April 2013.

The Bow-Drune Unit is five strong - including the Champion - and it enables you to increase your host if you've pledged for an Ysian Drune infantry Starter Set.

Please note, there are no additional shipping fees if you've already chosen a Starter Set!

£60,000 Stretch Goal

As we've had so many requests for this, the £60,000 Stretch Goal allows anyone to increase their pledge for the "freebie" miniatures for other kindreds and most of the characters from the Starter Set rewards. Going for the Dyndraig, but fancy Carrowek because he's such a cool miniature? Grab him here!

£65,000 Stretch Goal

The next Stretch Goal, the £65,000 one, brings in one new miniature - Dungann, an Albainn Oghurithne who accompanies Urbad on his travels and can ally with anyone, as he's a Sell-Sword too! He carries a big Oghu stone around with him and it could, just could, be magical...

As well as him, there's the option to get hold of the Duguth and Ax-Drune Warriors to increase the size of your units or just add a Dyndraig, Srónax or Troll Unit to your host.

Not only those, but also: we've added Talos of the Atalantes, Ulmons of the Byzantii - as well as Scar-Scath for the Vras, who ally with the Ysians - for those who just want some cool models!

£66,666 Stretch Goal

Lastly, but not leastly, here's the dastardly and rather mighty Krull!

Standing 165mm from top to toe Krull is probably our most impressive miniature and, rather appropriately, comes at the £66,666(and probably .66p) level. He will wipe the floor with just about anything else at the moment (barring the other really large miniatures) but he's so amazing and we've had so many requests that here he is... As always, you're getting great deals here - around a third off - so get them now while you have the chance!

Darklands Gameplay Video

It's been a while in coming but we've finally sorted out our short Darklands QuickStarter gameplay video for you all!

Before you watch it, please bear in mind that we have deliberately not shown anything advanced - just the simple game mechanics of initiative, movement and combat. We touch on Orders and some actions, too, so you will get the general feel of things. There are many things in the QuickStarter rules - even in this short gameplay video - that we've deliberately left out, such as push backs, fleeing, magic and so forth. Also remember that we are showing you the QuickStarter rules and NOT the full game which we are still playtesting!

Gameplay Video Reference

We've also given you a small reference PDF to better follow the gameplay video. We suggest you print this document and keep the matrices and the characteristics in front of you when you listen! You can find the Gameplay Video Reference document here.

Also thanks to Dave Speed for the loan of his equipment for the video ;o)

£70,000 Stretch Goal - Darklands Essentials!

Now that we've reached £60,000, it's time to unveil the stretch goal for £70,000 - which are all free to anyone who has pledged for a Starter Set!

The image isn't great (mainly because the D10 designs nor the token or template designs are finished) but you can see what you get, and it's a lot!

10 x D10 dice, all of which are in kindred-specific colours and have the kindred's symbol on the 9 face;

1x D100 set (i.e., two D10s), in kindred-specific colours and with the kindred's symbol on the 9 face;

As many Order Tokens you need, in kindred-specific shapes with the kindred's symbol on the front and the actual Order on the rear, in 2.5mm wood;

As many Action Tokens you need, in kindred-specific shapes with the kindred's symbol on the front and the actual Action on the rear, in 2.5mm wood;

and any templates you need for your Starter Set!

You get loads, really - all of the above is a cracking addition to your Starter Sets and will ensure you have everything you need to play a QuickStarter game of Darklands!

These extras will ship, of course, with the Starter Set and will not incur any extra postage fees.

£75,000 Stretch Goal

As we've got to £65,000 it's time to unveil the next stretch goal after £70,000 - the £75,000 one which includes pretty much all new concepts for you to drool over!

First up we have Ceonwulf, Hornblower of Mierce for the Angelcynn, who will act as a... well, a hornblower in the game! He's very useful when it comes to Orders.

Next for the Brythoniaid is Hywel Hir (Hywel the Tall), an "army standard" for Gwynedd. He's very useful indeed!

Chaagmuth the Jaw-Taker on foot is an awesome, evil-looking Gabrax Warlord who will chop you up as soon as look at you for the Fomoraic and Baalor.

Another concept for the Fomoraic is Belech, Scion of Baalor - one of Baalor's many sons who will be demon prince size and a very useful Warlord indeed.

The Khthones have an equally imposing miniature to look forward to, Pétroyos the Lískarchon, a Warlord of the Lískar, man-basilisks who can turn enemies to stone. Nice!

Norse fans will like this one: Brynhild Gunnblindi (Brynhild Battle-Blinder) is a Norse Gythja, a priestess who likes to send magical ravens to attack Odin's enemies!

For the Ysian Drunes we have Hedroc of Carn Maen, Battle-Drune - a Warchief - who likes chains. A lot.

Finally, for the Ysian Brutes we don't have anything new but we do have two units to go for to make up for that - the Sword-Melusines and the Drune-Goaders!

These guys will provisionally ship in November 2013, but we have no doubt that some will appear earlier than that. The Melusines and Drune-Goaders, of course, will ship with the Starter Sets.

Please note, there are no additional shipping fees if you've already chosen a Starter Set!

£85,000 Stretch Goal

Hurrah! We're at £75,000, so here's the £85,000 Stretch Goal which features incredible concept art - we think it's the best set yet!

First on the list is Leofwen, Fane-Bearer of Mierce on Hart, a lovely lady who rides a very large stag...

Next is a superb concept drawn by Christophe Madura, Aradae Mawr (Great Aradae) - the first of our Cawrdraig or Ogre Dragons!

We have two new concepts for the Fomoraic: the frankly awesome Qaano, Untain of the Srónax - basically a Srónax Warlord - from Des Hanley:

...and Aalvór, Tain of the Mallax, who is the first of our giant sloth-men who excel at defending territory... concept art by Danny Cruz.

The Khthones get an expansion for the Krokodars in the reptilian shape of Vókkinak, Krokodar Roarer by Christophe Madura!

For the Norse we have a breathtaking example of Stefan Kopinski concept artwork. Grímmin, Hrafnmann Champion is simply stunning!

Lastly we have two more for the Ysians! For the Drunes we have Kernour, Seer-Drune on Horned Beast -

- and for the Brutes we have a very nasty piece of work indeed, a mutant gone wrong... welcome, Torku, Bone-Aberrant!

These guys will provisionally ship in December 2013, but we have no doubt that some will appear earlier than that!

Please note, there are no additional shipping fees if you've already chosen a Starter Set!

£90,000 to £125,000 Stretch Goals

This stretch goal is different - it's lots of stretch goals! As we get to certain levels miniatures will be unlocked and we will definitely make them should we get to that level.

Note: if no images are showing, that is because we do not have the concept art for them yet. That will occur over the next couple of weeks, however!

£90,000 - Werwulf Unit

A unit of Werwulfas that will look quite similar to Cearl, the Werwulf Thegn for the Angelcynn that is already unlocked. The concepts are not yet available but will be soon, certainly within a week or so. Trust us when we say they will be magnificent!

There will be five Werwulfas - a Champion, a Standard-Bearer, a Musician and two Warriors - and you can increase your pledge by £70 to get hold of this unit. It's likely we'll get to £90,000 over the course of the last day so if you fancy some Angelcynn monstrous infantry, go for it!

£92,500 Stretch Goal - Angrislaug, Draiggoch of Eryri

For the Brythoniaid we have a very large dragon, Angrislaug. Increase your pledge by £40 for him, although we think he speaks for himself:

£95,000 Stretch Goal - Hrudinn, Valhrafn

A raven-giant for the Norse, Hrudinn will be bulky and nasty and winged. What more could you need to dominate the tabletop? Increase your pledge by £40 to get him!

£97,500 Stretch Goal - Ygandr, Hydra of Khthon

The Khthones get themselves a massive Hydra at £97,500. He really will kick those Atalantes into touch! Increase your pledge by £40 to get him!

£100,000 Stretch Goal - Vaak, Moraine Beast

Increase your pledge by £40 to get Vaak, a mighty Fomoraic construct of ice and rock to batter their enemies with. As if Uuthüll wasn't enough!

£102,500 Stretch Goal - Jowan of Carn Dhu, Hound-Master with three Drune-Hounds

The Drunes get Jowan of Carn Dhu and three Drune-Hounds, mighty beasts on 60mm bases, at £102,500 - as long as you increase your pledge by £26!

£105,000 Stretch Goal - Maallolvór, Lumbering Mallox

At £105,000 the Fomoraic get another beast - Maallolvór who is possibly the hairiest creature in Darklands! Increase your pledge by £40 to get him!

£107,500 Stretch Goal - Druc, Meat-Hulk

He's not green, but he's certainly a hulk... Druc will batter the enemies of the Ysians senseless with his mighty frame. Increase your pledge by £40 to get him!

£125,000 Stretch Goal

At this level, we'll give everyone who has backed this Kickstarter TWO free miniatures - Beowa, Werbera in bear form [monstrous infantry] and Beowa, Thegn of Northumbera in human form!

Beowa is a Northumberas Thegn, a shape-shifter Sell-Sword who will work with any kindred... for some gold ;o)

(concept images to follow)

You will get BOTH forms if you have pledged for a Starter Set, but he is NOT exclusive to this Kickstarter. You get ONE per backer - not one per Starter Set!

If you have not pledged for a Starter Set or just want another Beowa set, please add £26 to your total to get him!

All of these stretch goals will provisionally ship in December 2013, but we have no doubt that some will appear earlier than that - and these could slip to January 2014 so please bear that in mind.

Note, there are no additional shipping fees if you've already chosen a Starter Set!

Get pledging everyone!

Pledge Map

Zedmeister has kindly provided us with a Pledge Map of his own creation to make things a little easier for everyone.

Thanks be to Zed!

Scale Shots

A number of people were asking about scale shots, so we've provided one that shows the size of each kindred's infantry, monstrous infantry and monstrous beast!

Click on the image for a larger version

Hopefully that will show everyone just how big our big dudes really are - and thus explains their price!

Fine Quality Miniatures

All of our miniatures are made from high quality, non-toxic polyurethane resin and are rightly regarded as some of the finest 30mm scale miniatures in the world. Our miniatures are manufactured in house and our quality control is second to none, and we are constantly striving to ensure the casts you receive are as close to the master miniature as possible. We care about the cast that you get - just have a look at the detail held on Carrowek of Carn Dhu, shown at  approximately three times the size of his actual cast height, 72mm:

Carrowek of Carn Dhu at three times his actual size
Carrowek of Carn Dhu at three times his actual size

Important: all miniatures are supplied unassembled and unpainted, and each comes with a round plastic base of appropriate size - either 30mm for infantry or 60mm for monstrous infantry.

How do I pledge?

Just click the green "Back this Project" button! You'll be asked to enter your pledge amount and select a reward. Note, as this is a UK project, you'll check out through Kickstarter, not Amazon.

All dollar values are in US Dollars and are approximate; market fluctuations do occur so please ensure you check a currency exchange website for the closest values on any given day. When you check out and pay, Amazon Payments will show you the true amount in whatever currency you are paying in.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The team behind Mierce Miniatures have been creating and manufacturing miniatures for a number of years now and have produced tens of thousands of resin miniatures - some of which are incredibly complicated to make - over that time. Long experience in the wargaming industry coupled with an in-depth knowledge of the logistics required to bring miniatures to market ensure that we will be able to deliver on every single pledge exactly on time - if not earlier!

All that being said, sometimes those gremlins work hard as hard as we do too, but if there are unavoidable delays (which we seriously doubt) anybody who pledges will be the first to know about them. Many of the miniatures you can pledge for are already being manufactured but for those that aren't, it must be noted that the artists and sculptors we work with are genuine professionals and work very hard to meet their deadlines!

It is worth re-iterating that we are not dependent upon another company in a country on the other side of the world to manufacture our products - they are all made and packaged on our premises and so we are very confident we can deliver on all of the pledges with no problems whatsoever!

One thing that may concern some people is that Mierce Miniatures is somehow tainted by association with the former owners of our miniatures range, Maelstrom Games. We can assure you that this should not be so. Mierce Miniatures is a completely separate legal entity, existing from March 2012, and purchased the BaneLegions range entirely legally from Maelstrom Games in May of 2012 (rebranding 90% of it as Darklands) - long before Maelstrom Games' troubles began. We are unaffected by any issues regarding Maelstrom Games whatsoever and this Kickstarter project will be fulfilled - as long as we reach our target, of course!

Remember, too, Kickstarter's own words: if you don't like a project, don't back it. There's no need to be a jerk!

FAQ

  • No, you only need to pay for one set of shipping. We'll box the items together to save on shipping our end. If their are different shipping amounts please pay the highest amount of shipping in with your pledge and don't worry about the other amounts - Spend it on more miniatures!

    Last updated:
  • At the moment you don't have to! The beauty of this is that you can change your mind as the Kickstarter evolves. At the end of our Kickstarter we will email all backers with a pledge manager and at that point you can choose your faction and also spend any additional pledge amounts and make your choices from the list of options. You can basically tailor your pledge right until the end.

    Last updated:
  • Kickstarters can get quite complicated as they evolve. We're mitigating this by giving you choice and not restricting people's choice! If you have pledged say £80 for the Hoof and Claw pledge level and wish to add a £40 choice (such as Blood-Maw for example) then you simply click the green button and increase your pledge amount by £40 (you may do this as many times as you wish!). At the end of the Kickstarter you will have a set pledged amount and once we email you with our pledge manager program you can choose from the list of options exactly how to spend your £ or $.

    Last updated:
  • Yes! Simply increase your pledge amount by as much as you like to cover multiple miniatures and at the end you can choose which minis (and how many) you wish from the optional add-ons list.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, once the Kickstarter ends you may increase your pledge amount if something catches your eye. Though please keep your pledge level as up to date as possible during the campaign as it allows us to reach new goals quicker!

    Last updated:
  • Yes, once you check out at then end of the Kickstarter and let us know which kindreds you have chosen (we'll email you) we'll add the relavent free minis for your starter set choice/kindred.

    Last updated:
  • In this case we will endeavour to split you items where possible. For example if you order an Ysian starter set (ships April) and a Kthones starter set (ships September) we would send the Ysians in April and a second package containing the Kthones in Sept.

All of the human realms in Darklands were part of our history and your own ancestors may well have been a part of them. All you have to do is supply photographs of yourself, tell us what faction you'd like to appear in and why, and we'll do the rest - Stefan Kopinski will draw you in all your finery and our sculptors will bring you to life! We'll even name you as closely as possible to dark age names! Oh, and you'll also get a Starter Set of your choice! Note: your artwork may even appear in the rulebook, but please understand that we retain all rights to the miniature and artwork produced.
