Need some help with Dark Age pins
« on: 23 May 2013, 04:08:30 »
Looking for a full list of both the event and the mini pins. Not something that appears to be around despite all the excellent documentation of other parts of the franchise. So I've come to the collection gurus to help me out.

I'm getting a nice case for them soon and I would like to know what I am missing and where so I can make sure and have space for it. ;)

It's strange that you never seem to see these guys in lots greater than 3 or 4. Heck, the only double I have is of the Bishop Addicks pin and I know I have most of the minis in my collection that had pins but secondhand most are missing them. Here's what I have so far, separated by planet .

Well, your collection is more complete than mine, but the only one I've got that you don't is Fellowship Fox.

The pin thing was long over by the time I got into MWDA, but it was a neat concept.

It looks like the missing pins are mostly fellowship awards.

Each battle that had Champions and Parcipitation prizes also had Fellowship pins. 

Tybalt is missing the Crane Fellowship.

Achernar is missing the Fox Fellowship.

Ruchbah is missing Wolf pin Elora and Schmitt Felowship.

Ronel needs Champion Jes II and Ranger Fellowship.

Ankaa is missing Scimitar Fellowship.

Ozawa has the Joust Fellowship sitting by itself in your picture.

Rhodes III is missing Thumper Fellowship.

Addicks First Battle is missing Maxim Fellowship.

Addicks Second Battle is missing SM1 Fellowship.

You might want to switch Haag and Melisa for first and second battle.

Also there were three pins for the Limited Edition Mail in mechs, using the expansion set symbols Wolf Strike, Vanguard, and Domination.  The Ares Colossal tripod mechs (box set of three mechs) came with a nifty embroidered patch, too.

Yes there were two battles for Addicks separated by several months and a thin storyline.

Now that's what I'm talking about! You guys are great. Wow, thought I was doing a little better than 3/4 but I guess it's time to get hunting.

I have the Project Rhodes patch, just never really figured out something good to do with it.

Thanks for all the help!

Just thought I'd bump this with my new case cabinet I lucked out on finding at the gw and say thanks again. I'll get everything straightened and finalized when the little brass label plates come in.

I miss these pins as well. Held onto one of my favorites (Addicks Champion Saxon), but would like to find the campaign pins from my two favorite campaigns (Malisa/Melissa Addicks and Nostra Tybalt).

Sarna.net's documents section has the handouts from some of these campaigns, btw, complete with short stories about the commanders of each.

Between Mage Knight and MechWarrior, I always wanted to have a battle sash made to put the pins on while playing.

Thanks, had one more quick update. Think I finally got things organized the way I want with space for the remaining pins. Will create an Officer's Club label too when I see firsthand how big those are and get it all done in brass.

Small update. Down to 3 missing campaign pins and the 3 expansion pins. Here's hoping my luck holds out.

Now that picture makes me want to put my pins on display like that. 

I like the Faction symbol, too, Though I'd use something other than RotS.

Not sure if this is kosher to ask, but where did you end up finding your missing ones? I look for these on ebay all the time and rarely see them.

That's more a question for PM's. Hit me up and I can share a few online sources. But mostly, it's finding people who have them and are willing to part with them for goodies and greenbacks.

So, I was just looking at one of the original promo posters for Addicks II, Tybalt and Ruchbah.

The Thumper fellowship apparently goes to Addicks II

The Maxim fellowship to Ruchbah

And it confirms the Crane fellowship for Tybalt

That rearranges stuff for me a bit. Can you double-check the list again? The Schmit comes from a Swordsworn tank so I know it has to be Achernar or Rhodes III as long as the other confirmed swordsworn Ranger fellowship is correct at Ronel

Wow, looks like I'm 15 pins short. Any chance you could type up a comprehensive list for us?

Note that many of the Fellowship/Champion units didn't necessarily come from campaigns in which their faction was featured, such as the Crane, Paladin Jonah Levin, the Spirit Cat Behemoth II, and others. I am pretty sure the Schmitt is from New Rhodes III, though, as I don't remember it ever being a prize for an event I played in, and I played during the Achernar campaign.

Doublechecked, the Ranger Fellowship is from Achernar. You can look up old campaign rewards by going to www.wizkidsgames.com/mwdarkage using the internet archive and going back to 2002/2003. The current campaigns during those times are listed on the right-hand side of the page.

A bunch of the ones in the posted you quoted are wrong. Ozawa had the Condor and SM1 (not Joust), Achernar had Behemoth and Ranger (not Fox), Ankaa had Demon and Fox (not Scimitar), Addicks II had Thumper and Saxon (this one I know by heart, as it was one of my favorite campaigns - I still have my Saxon Pin). Those are the ones I checked, so I'm sure there's more you need. I'm fairly sure the Joust was from one of the very early campaigns, but I am not sure which one. One tip I can give is to try to figure out the timeline of these events - it was rare (but not never) that a campaign rewarded miniatures from two different sets, so it's unlikely that (for example) Elora, who piloted a Firestarter MOD from Fire For Effect, would be in the same campaign as the Schmitt from Dark Age.

I've got some of the scenarios, but none of the redemption forms and I can't find any of the event posters.

My previous list was simply based on what pins I had been keeping in a box, grouped in small compartments.  My memory is not perfect and some pins may have moved around over the years.  Many of the posters and documents that confirm wwhich goes with what has long since been disposed of.  But I did save a few Campaign scenario sheets that might help.

Battle for Addicks 1:  Dragon's Fury vs Highlanders ... late 2002

Tai-i Danni Haag
Captain Tara Bishop
Atlas Champion, Jonah Levin

Battle for Addicks 2:  Spirit Cats vs Highlanders ... May, 2003

Star Commander Malisa Nova Cat
Captian Naomi Katina

Battle for Ankaa: Sword Sworn vs Steel Wolf ... October, 2002

Star Captain Sadia Wolf, Catapult
Leftenant Diane Jameson, RyokenII
Sgt Alec Denner, Demon tank
'Magpie' Webster, Fox Armored Car

Pins are the Fox Fellowship pin and Ankaa Champion has the word Demon on it.  Wolf and Jameson pins are set to match the mech pilots.

Battle for Achernar, Steel Wolf vs Sword Sworn

Leftenant Scullcap Garrett, Spider, Garrett pin
Star Commander Yulri Wolf, Blackhawk, Wolf pin
Achernar Champion Behemoth pin might be Dekker Nova Cat Behemoth II Tank (Spirit Cats)
Lisabet Wolf Scimitar MKII (Steel Wolves) as the Fellowship pin

Battle for New Rhodes III: Sword Sworn vs Banson's Raiders

Captain Ben Gerringer, Panther
Captain Bart Bradshaw, Arbalest
Champion Packhunter, not sure which one
I'd only be guessing about the Fellowship

So far, I think all the prizes and pins listed here are from the original Dark Age expansion set.  Fire for Effect introduced Artillery and those prizes would not be available until then.

Anyway, four pins for each of nine battles, and the three mail in mechs with the tripod patch seems to be the complete set.  Participation prizes usually represented the Factions in those battles, while Champion and Fellowship prizes might not.

So with help from the wayback machine, some good pics of a couple promo posters, warrenborn, and process of elimination for the final pin, I have the canon comprehensive list of all DA pins, what event, when, and what miniature they went with.

I gotta rearrange a lot of stuff on my board but this time I can be 100% sure it's right.

Now still just need to hunt down a Fellowship Fox, Fellowship Maxim, Fellowship Crane, and the Officer's club pins (it kills me that I have all the Officer's Club mechs and not a single pin from them).

Thanks for the spreadsheet. I'm missing 6 from various campaigns.

Now if you could do one for the Mage Knight campaigns, that'd be great.  O0

I am UNBELIEVABLY jealous that you have RotS faction dice. I have Spirit Cat ones, but none for my Nova Cats, Rasalhague, or Republic armies.

I was only counting the campaigns. I was out of it by the time of the Officer's Club due to various reasons.

I think you have the DA Marquee prizes reversed. Pretty sure Tracyk was the Fellowship. I remember it took forever for the Envoys to get theirs.

Okay thanks Greywind. 

Those prizes went missing at my venue and the event was run without prize support.  We only heard rumors about how awesome Mason Dunne was supposed to be, though one player did get the Legionaire for his Sword Sworn army, and did very well with it. 

I seem to remember that one of the Jupiter mechs was either a Prize or Promo figure, but not sure which one, if any.  Both were difficult to get and neither one fit my style.  I'm betting it was One Eyed Jack. 

D116 Erin Johnston (Jupiter) 289 pts. (Dragon's Fury)
or
D142 One Eyed Jack Farrell (Jupiter) 295 pts. (Bannson's Raiders)

One-Eyed Jack was the promo. He came from an issue of (I believe) PC Gamer, thought it might have been a more traditional-game oriented magazine like The Duelist.

Erin Johnston was available in boosters. My buddy and I opened one in the case we split a few years back.

OEJ was in a magazine. There was also Geo a couple years later.
