DH5 Dwarf Polearms at Alternative Armies - Project Darkhelm

“Good to have by your side in a scrabble these lads are. They ain't important, they ain't that pretty to look at and they ain't the best dressed but they do know how to lunge and recover. Once the Dwarves get into a mass and made the slow advance it will take more than some puny Elves or slobbering Orcs to make them stop know what I mean! In the chambers of the under halls it pays to have Dwarves with you that can poke into the nooks and crannies. After all we all know what happened when the Fear Mountains tried to wrestle the keep from Argle Longbeard of Krim. They were scouring the walls for weeks afterwards.”

This code contains five different 25mm/28mm white metal miniatures approx 24mm average height. Great quality, great choice and great value too.  Go HERE.
Poses in this code are as follows:

DH5-01: Dwarf with Polearm in leather jerkin.
DH5-02: Dwarf with hood wielding stone headed Hammer.
DH5-03: Dwarf running in leather jerkin with Polearm.
DH5-04: Dwarf roaring a challenge in fur cloak with Spear.
DH5-05: Dwarf in full armour and helm with shield and long handled Axe.

These miniatures are not supplied with bases and are supplied unpainted. Select your choice from the drop down product menu. Choose from a pack, three packs with a 10% saving applied and single miniatures. Total choice! Assembly is required with some white metal miniatures.

The Alternative Armies classic high fantasy range dates from the period of the early 1990's through to the end of that decade. Designed by leading names in the wargaming industry and highly successful in its day this range has been on hiatus. Alternative Armies, under the name 'Project Darkhelm' is dedicated to re-mastering, re-molding and re-releasing this entire range back onto the market. We will be doing this work at a measured pace and a weekly rate maintaining high quality and excellent pricing. During and beyond this process Project Darkhelm will see the range continue to be expanded in the mediums of white metal and high grade resin using top industry designers in new releases. Every pose in each pack is unique with no duplicates making them perfect for skirmish wargaming, roleplaying and unit building for any battle system.

Thanks for Reading.
