This is shaping up to be one of the most exciting releases of the year. A very good way to do the Dark Ages without a vast number of figures from a team who understand the need for realism and fun and seem able to manage both.

Agreed. The write ups to date have certainly got my juices flowing. I've already dragged out my collection of "Arthurian" stories to get me into the mood – Mary Stewart, Bernard Cornwell and, of course, Rosemary Sutcliff are all vying to grab my attention.
And so many minis for the period, I'm spoilt for choice!

It says Medieval but from the comments I gather that it would be very suitable for Dark Ages ie Arthurian?

Derfel Cadarnn, Aelle and even despicable Lancelot are ready to go!

The rules are Dark Ages, not Medieval, so not sure why the headline here is describing them as Medieval…

…and Rich is once again tempting me into yet another period and yet more figures, dammit…

Because there are no "Dark Ages" in actual history.

Historians refer to this era as 'Late Antiquity' or 'The Middle Ages' and go to seminars and conferences to argue when the dividing line should be drawn.

Europe went through a Dark Age whilst the rest of the world advanced. So now the academics are at war with each other deciding what to call the Dark Ages. Great podcast on the subject from Dan Carlin. Link below.
