Here's the info on this wave as of the day before Thanksgiving, 2006.

Dawn of Darkness (2006) — Wave 6

1. Archers & Kyries — 6 figures (3 Tagawa Samurai Archers, 3 The Einar Imperium)
-The Archers fight for Einar....little else is known.
-The Einar Imperium are a Kyrie squad with flying.

2. Shades & Orcs — 7 figures (4 Heavy Gruts, 3 Shades of Bleakwoode)
-Shades are a true mystery and not much is known about them. There's not even a good picture on the Geek yet.
-Gruts are Orcs in heavy armor that fight for Utgar. They are supposedly slower than Blade Gruts, but with better defense. Little else is known.

3. Zombies — 6 figures (2 sets of 3 Zombies of Morindan)
-Most speculation says that these figures have either a swarming ability or the ability to turn other figures into Zombies....or both.

4. Heroes of Durgeth — 5 unique hero figures (Kee-Mo-Shi, Eldgrim, Empress Kiova, Runa, & Kaemon Awa)
-Kee-Mo-Shi is a Marro creature designed by a young girl as part of a contest Hasbro ran some time ago. The winning entry was turned into this figure, and was featured in the Heroscape promotional comics and materials. The figure has a "Toxic Skin" power rumored to be similar to Marro Plague (a power found on Wave 3's Marrden Hounds). The Kee-Mo-Shi character as portrayed in the comics has a mind-shackle ability. Whether or not this transfers to the game remains to be seen. Kee-Mo-Shi fights for Utgar.
-Eldgrim is either a Dwarf or a short Viking/Dreadgul. Speculation is rampant, with most thinking he fights for Einar or Jandar. Little is known about the figure.
-Empress Kiova is an Einar Kyrie hero. She can fly, but little else is known. The figure has been around for some time, and a prototype was originally shown as part of Wave 1.
-Runa is an Utgar Kyrie hero. Besides flight, virtually nothing is known about her other than like Empress Kiova, she was seen as an early Wave 1 prototype. Her power is somehow related (at least in name) to the Massive Curse glyph found in the Master Set.
-Kaemon Awa is a Samurai hero with sword and bow. Specualtion assumes he has Counter Strike, but this has not been confirmed. He is ranged and fights for Einar.

All of these figures will be released sometime in mid December.
