Dark Age: Forsaken, CORE, Kulkulkani Unboxed

000 Dark Age September Unboxing

Let’s have a peek at these cool new toys for the Forsaken C.O.R.E. and Kukulkani.

This is kind of a key piece for C.O.R.E. I’m sure all the robot players will be delighted to finally field them.

001 Dark Age September Tsuedo Unboxing

While it’s no Kabrakan, it’s a fairly large piece with legs around 2.5″ tall.

002 Dark Age September Tsuedo Unboxing

This close-up reveals a a good amount of detail.

003 Dark Age September Tsuedo Unboxing

This sprue contains the feet and some optional crystal growths. Those have been sprouting off the C.O.R.E. minis for awhile now.

004 Dark Age September Tsuedo Unboxing

Now the torso. This side will be largely covered by that mask/faceplate thing hence the minimal detail.

005 Dark Age September Tsuedo Unboxing

And of course the other side is suitably more elaborate.

Now this is a little more my speed. A giant flying robo snake for my Kukulkani.

006 Dark Age September Coatlai Unboxing

Another all resin kit.

007 Dark Age September Coatlai UnboxingAll the surfaces are very textured so the miniature matches the distressed style of the art.

008 Dark Age September Coatlai Unboxing

This is the front of that same piece.

009 Dark Age September Coatlai Unboxing

The head and tail.

010 Dark Age September Coatlai Unboxing_5899

Mechano wings.

011 Dark Age September Coatlai Unboxing

I had to go back and look at the picture, but these apparently go under the main wings.

012 Dark Age September Coatlai Unboxing

I know it might seem a little unnecessary, but I felt like I had to get a separate shot of the lower jaw and all the cool peg teeth.

 Dark Age Forsaken Firestorms

Man you gotta love these crazy flamethrower ladies and their impossibly perfect hair. How do you run around in the desert with a Flamethrower and still keep it feathered like that? I guess someone must have dug up some perfect hair technology when they were out there in the desert salvaging for cool new weapons.

013 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

Here are all the pieces you’ll find in a Firestorm blister.

014 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

Our first firestorm is too busy to stop for a blowout on the way to purge the unclean every morning, so she’s getting by with a ponytail. Which is totally fine. I don’t care what your hair looks like as long as you burn the thing that’s trying to kill me.

015 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

Here’s a look from the other side.

016 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

A flamethrower and 70s hair; what’s not to love? It’s cool, you could shave that head and we’d still love you because you burn the enemies of the Forsaken.

017 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

Having now glued this model together, I will admit that the whole head attached to the fuel tank thing did make for a somewhat trying assembly. Just do a lot of dry-fitting beforehand. You might have to file away a little flash, but with some of care, you’ll find the hair covers most of the gap.

018 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

Such hair!

019 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

This Firestorm and the last could almost be twins. She’s not smoking a cigarette. That bit is like a handle I guess that connects to the side of the gun.

020 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

And again, the other side.

021 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

More hair close-up!

022 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

You’ve seen Kelly, Sabrina, and Jill, but there was a fourth Angel that was too edgy for 1970’s television. The Nielsen ratings people found Melinda’s mohawk didn’t play well in the midwest, so her character was cut from the show.

023 Dark Age September Firestorms Unboxing

But in Dark Age you can make her the Firestorm Leader, and everything will be awesome again.

So that was a lot of pictures. But what about the Coils and Banes? Well I already got some pictures of those as part of my “hey look at all this cool stuff I brought back from Gencon series.” Click here for shots of the Banes, and click here for shots of the Coils. I’ve been hard at work painting these Forsaken, so here is a shot of my own painted Coils, with Diskmaster (center) sold separately.

Dark Age Forsaken Coils

I should have put them in front of a neutral background.

~Hope you enjoyed the article. Has anyone else picked up these new Dark Age releases?

    What mm are the standard units in this game? I couldn’t find the info on their site for some reason.

    As a Warmachine/Hordes player, who also plays Malifaux to indulge my listen to “The Cure” while wearing my goth gear and cloak side, I really adore Dark Age. The rules are so tight, balanced, and fun to play. The only thing I didn’t like were the models, but CMoN is changing that really quick. The models are so detailed, beautiful, and great to just see on the table.
