Dark Age Games - Dragyri Fire Caste

Welcome back!

This week we are going to take a look at the  Dargyri Fire Caste warband box from Dark Age Games.

This was a commission piece I did for a local client, with the freedom of colors. I went with the volcanic ashen skin color. Their armor is a mix of bronze and silver, the weapons more of steel in color. Lets take a look!

Dragyri Volcanic Helot (female)

Dragyri Phalanx (female)

Dragyri Spirit Lord of the Fire Caste

The bases were custom made using cork, PVA white glue, and painted up for a little earth on lava effect.

For a warband/starter box 3 models does seem like a low count, but being on large bases it seems reasonable. Personally I like the look of the Kukulkani more (having almost all those models), and a few of the Forsaken. The newer models are looking better and better, and someday I will get to paint more of them (like everything else lol).

Well until next time readers...

Questing in Arcadia pt4

     What a crazy last two weeks it has been, we had our first snow storm BLIZZARD of the year (30" here), multiple projects started, and tons of extra hours in at work. And the extra hours continue for a while I am told so I decided to do this weeks update a day early. This week will wrap up the Questing in Arcadia series for now, more will come later after I paint a few more figures-most from the retail release box. Next week we will take a look at a starter box from Dark Age, the retail box (plus some) from Robotech, and possibly reach the newest from Zombicide Black Plague! A handful of random other miniatures, and possibly some terrain is also in the works but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

Onto Arcadia Quest!!


While he is not a hero, he sparked my interest as the first monster to be painted. He dubs as a Troll minion or the troll boss, Schmetterling!


There we have it, the last 2 figures painted up from Arcadia Quest for this series. Its a great game as I may have mentioned before. Really enjoyed playing it and painting the figures. The rest will come painted up later this year (hopefully).

Until next time.
