Darklands: Second Edition Kickstarter
Mierce Miniatures haben ihren neuen Kickstarter gestartet.
In the dark lands, YOU command the hosts of man and beast that your ancestors once did for power, glory or just to survive…
Check the comments on this project for sneak peeks, Darklands lore, hints, tactics, painting advice and general insanity! The community that builds during these Kickstarter projects is amazing, and even if you just read the comments, you’ll gain so much more from Darklands: Second Edition!
Backing Darklands: Second Edition is a great opportunity to get into the dark fantasy world of Darklands for the first time, to expand your existing Darklands collection for the new edition (and grab the new tokens and templates) or maybe just to treat yourself to some fantastic miniatures to paint!
The second edition of Darklands plays much faster than the first edition rules but loses none of the immersiveness and atmosphere of the original. Combat, shooting and sorcery is greatly streamlined but the game’s structure is roughly the same – players alternate the activations of their units, performing actions and reactions with them until each unit on the battlefield has activated, at which point the battle hour (what we call a turn) ends and the units that are left steel themselves for another round of combat, shooting and sorcery!
If you’re an experienced Darklands player or just want to get your hands on the rule book before you start, the reward to go for is the DARKLANDS RULE BOOK reward which includes the 412 page A4 hardback rule book itself and the all-new Darklands Summary Boards (4 pages each, A3 folded to A4, printed on thick card) to keep to one side and refer to while you’re playing.
If you’re new to Darklands and want to get some miniatures as well as the rules, the easiest way to begin is to choose an infantry host with the STARTER BUNDLE reward!
It contains everything you need to begin your journey into the lands of darkness!
- 1x Darklands: Second Edition Rule Book plus Quick Play Guide and Lands of Darkness Kindred Guide
- 1x Darklands: Second Edition Summary Boards Set
- 1x Starter Host of your choice in either resin (up to £130 in value) or metal (up to £100 in value). Choose your Starter Host from those listed below
- 1x Order Tokens Set (that matches the kindred of your starter host)
- 1x Mierce Wulf Dice Set
The I JUST WANT COME COOL MINIATURES reward is for those who just want to pledge £10 or more and choose your goodies later, on the Mierce Miniatures webstore. Just increase your pledge by the amount required!
All Starter Hosts contain a small Darklands host of around 499 silver – so Encounter Host size – where possible, but there are four flavours, Infantry Starter Hosts, Support Starter Hosts, Mounted Starter Hosts and Monstrous Infantry Starter Hosts. Starter Hosts can be included in a Starter Bundle as shown in the reward above, pledged for singly at £75 for metal hosts and £100 for resin hosts, or pledged for as a double-host deal at £125 for two metal hosts and £160 for two resin hosts as below!
As well as the Darklands: Second Edition Rule Book and the starter hosts, you can purchase all of the followings stretch goals individually. Just increase your pledge by the amount indicated!
The new Order Tokens Sets are essentials for Darklands and will be produced when the project is funded at £5,000. As such, they’re the first stretch goal! Printed in high quality on A5 MDF boards and shrink-wrapped so none are lost, the new order token sets – containing a total of thirty 25mm round order tokens – pop easily out of the MDF and look amazing on the battlefield behind your units.
The order tokens themselves have two sides; the realm side, which hides your unit’s order at the beginning of the battle, and the order side, which displays your unit’s actual order – either GENERAL, MOVE, ATTACK, HOLD, FLANK or SCOUT. Orders are used by generals to command their host more effectively!
Choose the realm of your order tokens to match the hosts you’ve pledged for from those listed below. The names listed in red are the kindreds of Darklands; the names listed in black are the realms of those kindreds. For more information on these download the Lands of Darkness kindred guide.
As well as the order tokens we have a new Exult & Dismay Tokens Set at £5,500 for this project. Printed in high quality on A5 MDF boards and shrink-wrapped, these tokens are double-sided (same image front and rear) and are attached to units on the battlefield to indicate their heart statuses, among other things.
There’s sixty tokens in total and whilst that should give you all you’d need for 999 silver battles we suggest you’d be better off with a couple to cover every eventuality on the battlefield.
There will be lots more stretch goals over the course of the project, we hope, so watch out for them!
