Darklands: Metal Age is a fantastic Kickstarter project from Mierce Miniatures designed to re-tool our miniatures to get you playing Darklands cheaply - for it provides you with an Infantry Starter Host in metal that includes a commander, infantry unit and monstrous infantry unit for just £60 ($90), saving you over 70% from the equivalent in resin. That means you're getting our amazing rank and file infantry at around £2 ($3) each!

Backing Darklands: Metal Age is a great opportunity to get into the dark fantasy world of Darklands for the first time (especially as the Darklands: First Edition rulebook is just around the corner), to expand your existing Darklands collection or maybe just to grab some fantastic miniatures to paint. We'll give you the option to purchase everything in resin, too, if you're more of a painter than a gamer!

 

 

 

put off by the fragility of resin for gaming, or the price well if so (or if you just want to have bigger hosts) then this one may be for you (and you can always end up using your pledge on resin items from the webstore too)

Mierce doesn't exactly follow normal KS rules, though. They do steady wave shipping, I have most of my stuff from previous KS (except the last darklands one, but that was a pretty massive one!). I've backed pretty much every one and have no issues backing this one (except budget, of course!).

It's important to note that this one is all about existing sculpts, and will be cast by an external foundry (Gryphon for those interested which is really good),]

 

so other than the actual administration of the KS itself and shipping the final stuff this should have minimal impact on their other KS projects

Right, that, too. If we do see 'new' stuff (and Rob has hinted maybe as he is wont to); my money is on pulling out stretch goals from previous KS or their infamous conversions.

 

But as OtT says, this is primarily a 'fund the molds and initial batch of metal' KS. About as quick and dirty as it gets for Mierce.

 

And backing will most likely get you access to the 'existing minis' category of their store so you can pile on some discounted resin, too.
