Darklands Rules and Musters

Darklands is a tabletop skirmish wargame in which YOU command the hosts of man and beast that your ancestors once did for glory, power or simple survival! Read all about those hosts in The Land of Darkness, a handy guide to all of the various kindreds, their motivations and their specialities.

To play Darklands with our fantastic range of miniatures, you need rules - the Darklands: First Edition Rule Book to be precise, which you can purchase right now from this very webstore, and you can download the Darklands: First Edition Quick Play Guide to get you started!

As well as the Darklands: First Edition rules, you'll also need the Official Errata (which fixes any errors in the rules), the Official Addenda (which adds to the rules), the Muster Rules (which show you how to build a host) and the various Kindred Musters (which give you all the warrior profiles for every single miniature we have produced or will produce).

Darklands: First Edition Rules

Updated: 17th of February, 2017

Fight as your ancestors once did to create your own myths and legends!

Darklands is a tabletop skirmish wargame in which YOU command the hosts of man and beast that your ancestors once did for glory, power or simple survival. Fight breathtaking battles on your tabletop with some of the most finest resin miniatures ever created!

What if dragons really flew, in those ancient times, and giants really walked the earth? What if berserkers actually were bear-men, man and bear joined together? What if all of the myths and legends we take for granted were real and our ancestors fought against - and with - creatures and beings and realms we thought were nothing more than the fantasies of our uncivilised selves?

Darklands answers all of those questions for you and more, so take a deep breath and re-create the true history of our world with the Darklands: First Edition Rules found within this 364 page hardback book!

The hardback Darklands: First Edition Rule Book is now available and can be purchased here: Darklands: First Edition Rule Book

If you want a head start before you purchase the Darklands: First Edition Rule Book, the handy Darklands: First Edition Quick Play Guide is exactly what you need. Download it and try out Darklands: First Edition now - as long as you've got some miniatures, of course!

The Lands of Darkness

Updated: 17th of February, 2017

The Darklands - the lands where man and beast live in constant strife - lie in the north and west of the Europe of our world in the year 650AD, where civilisations were very different to today... and yet are still recognisable as our civilisations. In this grim place, in this age of darkness, the myths and legends of western fantasy so popularised by twentieth century fiction are real...

The The Lands of Darkness is an excellent guide to the denizens of the dark lands and the hosts they can put into the field, giving you a brief overview of how each kindred fights, its specialities and weaknesses and where to start!

Darklands Muster Rules

Updated: 17th of February, 2017

To play a game of Darklands, a player must choose a kindred or realm they like and a general from its muster. Then an opponent with a host must be found and a battle size agreed upon. Both players then spend their gold wisely to muster their host and ultimately meet upon the battlefield!

The Darklands Muster Rules govern how you build a host for Darklands from the various Kindred Musters and will always be "living" rules - i.e., they will be updated when necessary and always available for download, even though we will combine them into book form later on in 2017 as part of the Darklands: Savage Hordes Muster Book. The updated PDF version of the Darklands Muster Rules - v2.10 can be downloaded by clicking on the link below.

These Muster Rules also include the most recent, updated rules regarding hosts, units and warriors from the most recent Kickstarter projects.

Darklands Kindred Musters

Updated: 17th of February, 2017

A Kindred Muster, what we call an army list, gives you the blocks to build a host of a particular kindred or realm for Darklands. It includes all of the different unit types available to you as a general wishing to create an army, in the shape of warrior profiles. The kindred musters given below include most (if not all) of the warriors unlocked by our projects so you can check exactly what you're getting for your money in game terms. Again, the Kindred Musters will always be "living" rules - i.e., they will be updated when necessary and always available for download, but we will combine them into book form later on in 2016 along with the Muster Rules as part of the Darklands: Savage Hordes Muster Book.

Bear in mind, however, that any new profiles are only partially playtested - expect changes and feel free to give us feedback. Check them out for some awesome new warriors, however!
