Cartouche Resin Bases for Flintloque and Slaughterloo Free in all Codes

Among the new changes brought to Alternative Armies alongside our new website is the replacement of our entire plastic and MDF range of supplied bases with Flintloque and Slaughterloo for free included in the price.  To replace them we have created the fantastic resin Cartouche Bases sized for 28mm scale Flintloque and Slaughterloo miniatures.  Read on!

After along thought and experimentation we settled on resin as the medium with a 3mm thickness giving a lightweight but very durable and strong base for the miniature that will last forever.  The cartouche shape means that every base has gently rounded corners which allows for an easy lift from the tabletop and is ascetically pleasing to the eye.  There are three different sizes of these new bases and these are as follows.  A 25mm square suitable for almost all miniatures on foot (such as Elves, Orcs, Dwarves) plus small cavalry (Rams, Dodo's).  A 30mm square for the largest miniatures on foot such as Trolka and Ogres and lastly a rectangle 50mm by 25mm for all other cavalry.  Every base comes with a smooth side and a side with 'keying' making it simple to affix your miniatures.  We will be working on movement trays soon.

We supply one correctly sized cartouche base with every miniature sold in the Flintloque and Slaughterloo code structure from single characters to whole divisions free of charge.  If the miniatures are purchased pro-painted and based then these bases are included free with a sculpted basing effect and finished.  These are the official miniatures for our World of Valon game systems. Our classic range of white metal bases are still on the website for separate purchase.

From the 23rd of June 2014 all orders both personal and trade which have codes from our World of Valon range will be supplied free with these new resin bases.

Thanks for your time.
