This is it, folks... what you've all been waiting for. Today, now, this point in time is the end of Darklands: New Kindreds - at least in terms of miniatures! - a fact for which we shall all rejoice, to much muttering and so forth.
This project has drawn to a close, finally, and we'd like to thank each and every backer for their funds and their forbearance, because this project has taken a lot longer than we'd hoped to finish.
The last few waves of this project are almost complete and Wave 20 will begin shortly. We will try to get everything out as soon as we can, but there's a lot to ship - and as always we prioritise orders in date sequence; i.e., if you ordered early, you'll get your stuff sent early.
What we're saying, basically, is - please be patient! We are doing everything as fast as we can without compromising on quality.

Items in bold should be sent in that wave as we have the sculpt; items in italics are in progress and should make it into that wave, but we don't yet have the sculpt. Items not in bold or in italics may still make it into that wave, but may not.
As there's still plenty you can purchase from Darklands: New Kindreds, not least of which are the various hosts, we though it would be a good idea to outline exactly how long you've got to purchase everything.
- Wave 13 Miniatures: September 13th 2016
Wave 14 Miniatures: November 7th 2016
Wave 15 Miniatures: February 27th 2017
Wave 16/17 Miniatures: June 19th 2017
Wave 19 Miniatures: November 6th 2017

Keep watching this list as it may well change - and if you have any issues with the above timings, please let us know and we may well be able to push the deadline back a little for you.
We reserve the right to change any of the above dates without notice.
Sculpts and Sculptors
Here's the big list of who's sculpting what and when for Darklands: New Kindreds! Please bear in mind that this list may change over time, so don't take it as set in stone until the first work in progress shots appear.
We've split the lists into completely new sculpts and alterations to make life easier for us all!
- YANNICK HENNEBO: Yannick's completed Unmasked Velchior, and that - as they say - is your bally lot!
We thought this would be a good idea, as things are cracking on - a list of completed sculpts, in kindred order! Completed sculpts are in green bold; in progress sculpts are in yellow italics.
As above, we'll do these in "new sculpts" and "alternate sculpts" lists...
