Waves are gone...
We've decided to remove the "Wave" system, for the simple reason that we just try to get stuff out when we can; it's confusing for us, let alone you guys, so we're just going to give you months instead of waves.
Regardless, 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.
Metals will ship at separate times
The metal versions of miniatures (if there are any) will ship at least one wave later than the resin versions; it takes a while to get them ready to be cast in metal.
Now that we're used to working with the external casters we can give you a little idea of what goes on. Usually, it takes at least a month to get the master metal moulds from sending the miniatures to them; and then we must check these masters for errors and then either amend or okay them. Then they go into production, which takes another month.
Whilst we are using metal casters that are second to none in terms of quality, they are so busy it can take a while to get miniatures from them!
What Ships When
Here's an up to date list of what we think will be shipped when.
- SHIPMENT WAVE 0 (complete): Existing miniatures
SHIPMENT WAVE 19 (October 2017): Xet

Items in green will DEFINITELY be sent in that wave as we have them in hand.
Items in yellow italics have been received from the sculptor or printer but not yet moulded. They should be sent when stated, but that can easily slip.
Items in italics are in progress and should make it into that wave, but we don't yet have the sculpt or 3d print.
Items not in bold or in italics may still make it into that wave, but may not.
There's still time to purchase everything from this project...
- Wave 18 Miniatures: October 9th 2017
Wave 19 Miniatures: November 6th 2017
Wave 20 Miniatures: February 19th 2018
Wave 24 Miniatures: October 29th 2018
Wave 25 Miniatures: February 25th 2019
The Rest: we've ended late pledges (except under certain circumstances) and added everything to the main webstore as Kickstarter items.
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: Savage Hordes! 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!
New Sculpts and Alterations:
- RAFAEL DIOLI: A new sculptor to our range, Rafael has completed Black-Fang on foot and mounted, Annik on Horse and Kerazek on Horse and on Karnun-Beast. He's also doing Hedroc on Hound-Horse, Alix on Swift-Horse, the Ax-Margh-Drunes and Kyros on Bronze Horse. Oh, and Spartakus on foot and on Leónis and Rudraige on Pony.
YANNICK FUSIER: He'll be doing Murcunn and the Oghureach Unit.
BOB PŁOCIENNIK: Bob has completed Timoth on foot and on horse and the Veterans of Maunsfeld, Duguth Unit resculpt, and will move on to the Duguth Ēored next. He'll also sculpt Culcca and Cynemon on Horse.
VALENTIN ZAK: Valentin has completed Sreng and will of course do Kaarstan on Horse, the Reiver Horse Unit, the Reiver Hunter Horse Unit and Rudraige on Pony.
