Alternative Armies New Flintloque, Erin Request met, a wee Halfling Video and free bones…

“Coin is a funny thing. Tiny bits of gold, silver and copper but in the hearts of Nain’s there is little which will inspire more avarice than their chink in bag or chest.  Pay Masters guard their coin well and in fact even during the worst of defeats and routs it is rare to see the glint of metal exposed.  Either the officers gather enough troops around them to stave off predation or the predation results in staved in heads.  Either way I see the pay chests and I see the razor edged blade of the Pay Master’s axe too.”  (Legionnaire Gurt Feigling, 1st Legion de Nain)

We present the final of three dedicated pack codes (pack or singles from it) of character infantry for the Legion De Nain.  This time it is the ‘staff’ aides and officers with purpose to put into your force.  You can also see above 52005D Legion Officer on Pony, Legionary Drummer from 52005 and Beer Barrel Barricade from our scenic range.  Following up on the casualties and wounded last month and the veterans before them this new pack slots right into the infantry of the line, grenadiers or skirmishers of these Dwarves. Four Dwarves uniformed to match up with the rest of the Legion.  The legion now has fifty poses of Dwarf and you can read all about it on our blog using the Bier Wars TAB. Go HERE for the Confederation of Finklestein on the website where all these miniatures reside.

52023 Legion de Nain Staff:  This pack contains four different 28mm scale metal Dwarves which slot right into the ranks of the Legion and are great for more specialised scenarios.  Choose from the pack or select a pose (A to D) and all poses are dressed in legion uniform.  They are Dwarf officer with monocle pointing  and slung axe (A), bare headed Dwarf paymaster with axe and coin chest under his arm (B), bare headed Dwarf aide studying maps and papers with slung axe (C) and Dwarf with telescope and hammer (D).  You can select poses from the pack too. Supplied with resin cartouche bases included.

As we progress more releases will happen monthly as we expand the Legion de Nain and work towards it as a full force of all arms (the biggest ever expansion to the miniature range for a single army). We are pleased to be able to say that next month is the start of the cavalry as the infantry is now complete with a battalion’s worth of new interlinked with each other poses!

If you would like to get into Flintloque in the lands of the Dwarfs then look no further than 5028 Beir and Bones game book.  On its own with full rules in print or as a digital download or as a shilling starter pack with miniatures and scenarios. If you have any questions please contact us on sales@alternative-armies.com and ask.

Halflings for Oathmark video by James DeGrey

We are delighted to link up a Youtube video in this short article for your viewing.  Halflings from our 28mm High Fantasy Range and from Ganesha Games too.  

The video is embedded on our BLOG (click to go and view) and covers unboxing of James’s order, his looking at the miniatures, at his free gift (VNT9 Troll) and then across to the miniatures painted and his plans for them.  Very enjoyable and fun hobby viewing.

The miniatures featured in this video are CA2 Halfing Walking Party (which can be had as a pack or as single miniatures) in our Adventurers and Wizards collection and codes such as AAB006 Halfling Cook and AAB013 Halfling Stilt Walker which you can see in this refined grouping in the Ganesha Games range.

We recently remolded the Halfling Walking Party and it is on special offer just now too. Thanks for your time.
