In the Jungle...

Darke Lands is a project that has been bubbling under for a while but has now entering proper development stage with a view to releasing the game and a range of supporting miniatures by the end of the year.

What is Darke Lands? It is a historo-fantasy game with fantasy races taking the roles of historical archtypes in a miniatures game. I used the term historical archtype deliberately as the fantasy races will follow the more amusing national sterotypes of historical armies rather than be 100% historically accurate.

As Darke Lands is a sister set to Panzerfäuste the nationalities will generally remain the same so there will be British Orcs, German Dwarves and French Gnomes attempting to colonise and civilise the savages of Umbongodwongoland.

The savages will also be represented by fantasy races, Zulus will be Halflings, Madhists will be Goblins. We have more planned but we'll keep these under our pith helmet for the time being.

Miniatures are now being sculpted and as things progress I will share work in progress pictures and hope that as we progress things there will be opportunities for you to become involved in the development and production of Darke Lands.
