Mierce Miniatures are heading back to Kickstarter once more to fund their new expansion for the game, New Kindreds. Here are a few of the details on it alongside a few nice painted miniatures from their existing range…
“This project has been mooted for a long while simply because Darklands has ten main kindreds, two of which – the Atalantes and Érainn – have not yet been explored, even though there’s lots of interest in them.
You see, in Darklands: a World of War we decided to concentrate on six kindreds (Angelcynn, Brythoniaid, Fomoraic, Khthones, Norse and Ysians) and then added another two kindreds with the Darklands: First Edition project (the Albainn and Byzantii) – which leaves the Atalantes and Érainn rather by the wayside. Now’s the time to redress that!”
The Atalantes are the first of the races being covered, based on the Atlantian people of mythology. The Erainn on the other hand are Darkland’s Irish warband. The first faction will dive into miniatures dressed like Hoplites with huge bronze constructs while the Erainn will look like barbaric (by comparison) raiders.
Going back to existing miniatures Aalvor and Maallolvór have been given a very nice paint job by Sébastien Picque and they are very nice indeed. It’s pretty ace to see some cool shaggy beasts and fur both sculpted well and painted well in return. Are you a big fan of Darklands?
Will you be backing these chaps again?
