Well here we are: the lovely quirky project that has been Darklands: Metal Age has now reached its end. The Drinking Companions have now been produced in metal and have been sent as part of Wave 18!
That draws Darklands: Metal Age to a close, and we'd like to thank each and every backer for their funds and their forbearance, because this project has taken a little longer than we'd hoped to finish. We're there now though!
The Drinking Companions will be in production shortly and will be sent during Wave 18, in August, as long as you have a Metal Age shipment item, of course. If you haven't, purchase one here: http://mierce-miniatures.com/index.php? ... g#shipping
If you reserved your drinking companions during the project, have no fear - we'll be adding them to your orders later on this month, ready for shipment as part of Wave 18.

Items in bold will DEFINITELY be sent in that wave as they are in production with the metal casters (or they're resin, and we have them in hand).
Items in bold italics denote those that have been produced in sample form, and are just awaiting production versions after any corrections.
Items in italics are in mould-making progress (as we have all of the miniatures required for that host and have shipped them to the metal casters) and should make it into that wave, but we don't yet have the first samples.
All of the hosts have now been removed, but there's still time to purchase the Drinking Companions and remaining monsters.
- 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

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!
- TIM PROW: Tim has completed Egaendr, and that concludes his work on this project!
That's it! All done...
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...
