Broodmere Spawn Howler Box
Broodmere Spawn Howler Box
One of the Broodmere’s greatest and singularly largest monstrosities ever to crash through the swampy undergrowth, the Howler is an enormous killing machine capable of healing the most egregious of wounds in seconds while tearing the enemy into bite-sized chunks. The Howler’s deafening sonic attacks can be heard for miles around – spreading terror to all those who know that keening howl!

Dark Age is a sci-fi skirmish miniatures game by CoolMiniOrNot. It is generally played by two players with a half dozen or so (per side) finely-detailed 28mm-scaled models fighting over the ravaged lands of Samaria for victory or death. As a Dark Age player, you will command groups of grim survivors, savage warriors, berserk robots, cunning aliens, or perhaps…all of the above.
“Protect survive hunger kill kill.” – Murtros
“Truly they are the spawn of Hell itself, put here as a literal embodiment of evil and monstrosity itself!” – Grand Templar Marius
“In the name of Johann, what is that repulsive thing?” – John Woe, Herald of the Heretic
Finally we come upon the Brood. The Brood are a collective of bio-engineered swamp-dwelling monsters, descended from the forbidden experiments of long-abandoned secret laboratories from Samaria’s corporate past. The Brood are the creations of the Brood Mere, and her armies are her children. While the Brood Mere herself was created by man, she hates her creator for abandoning her, and her children are the instrument of her revenge. They are the ultimate in genetically engineered, purpose-bred soldiers.
Some of the strengths of the Brood include:
- Army-wide Regeneration – the Brood do not die easily
- A variety of evolved killing machines
- Bio-gens which grant you the ability to fine-tune your chosen army
The Brood do not have Subfactions, but instead have Broodspawn options. By choosing a particular Brood leader (such as Mutros, Mean Jelly Bean, or Helexa) and a limited selection of models for your army, those models all gain special abilities not otherwise available to the Brood. There’s no requirement to play as a Broodspawn and limit your options, but it does offer some special variety for players if you choose to use one.
Playing with the Brood starter: The Brood starter is a mix of power and speed, with the super-survivability that Brood Regeneration brings you. Your most powerful piece is Mandible, who has a pair of very accurate attacks (AS 9) and then a powerful surprise when his foes manage to wound him: Acid Blood! Furthermore he has a trio of Puds who can help chew through enemies. Rachets hit hard and bring both Knockdown and Paralyzing Poison to your arsenal, reducing even the toughest of opponents needed Action Points and greatly reducing their effectiveness – giving you control options for enemy models that you might otherwise struggle to take down. Finally, you get a pair of Brood Hounds which offer speed (moving up to 12” per turn) and Infiltration. Brood Hounds are tough and fast enough to reach your enemy first and tie them up while the rest of your forces get into position. The Brood starter is evolved to be better than every other thing upon Samaria.
