Trolka now in Resin re-releasing this month for Flintloque

Trolka Jager next to an Elf Dragoon on Horse
Late on last year Alternative Armies withdrew the largest soldiers on Valon from regular release on our website.  The Trolka of Skandavia were the biggest single piece miniatures in our huge28mm scale Flintloque range standing an average 50mm tall and some 25mm across the belly.  Big lads! Fighting on the side of the Ferach Emperor Mordred they had line infantry, light infantry, cavalry and artillery all in white metal.  But no more.....

In a little over a week we will be re-releasing these miniatures re-mastered into high quality resin! While we will not be doing this with almost everything else in the range as we love white metal miniatures as do many wargamers for these huge fellows it made sense.  As a result the new price of each Trolka including a base is fifty percent less than it would have been as of this year remaining in white metal.  So every Trolka will come with 30mm square resin cartouche base (or a 50mm by 25mm Cavalry base of the same type) and all of the infantry are resin with a few retaining white metal separate hands and weapons.  The cavalry are going to be mounted on a massive now resin moose while the riders remain white metal.  The gunners are all resin but the leather barrel cannon kit for them remains white metal.

  1. They look like they were meant for resin.


    1. Very, very nice miniatures and they were superb in metal (we will offer the chance to order them in metal at about 12.00GBP each) but yes they do seem to suit the resin as well.
