Welcome to the last of the first looks for the Von Rotte Legion. We started in January and since then we have looked at and released Line Infantry, Command Set, Artillery Crew, Light Troops, Hussars, Cuirassiers and now its the turn of that most lamentable of needed units in Flintloque and Slaughterloo..the dead. Your troops might lose, they might win but some of them will likely perish in any event and these two blister codes give you the ability to show this in play on your table. I personally love tracking a skirmish or battle by the trail of corpses across the wargaming table.
The Von Rotte Division DAP box and its elements is nearing release and will come out as our Spring Offer month begins but more on that next week. Read on for details of the dead!
52015 Von Rotte Casualties
This pack contains four 28mm scale white metal miniatures in two different poses. Dressed in the same uniform as 52514 Von Rotte Line these now dead infantry can serve as scenario objectives or casualty markers in play or even just as decoration on your table. A face up Dwarf mouth open with wounds and a face down Dwarf with wounds which you can paint up as bloodily as you desire. You could also use a pin drill to make additional musket shots upon the corpses if you desire or remove a leg or arm for more personalisation. These miniatures are well suited to conversions. These miniatures will be offered in a pack suitable for a Slaughterloo division or a Flintloque section. As with all our Valon miniatures we will offer the additional choice of purchase pro-painted and based by our team of ladies here in Scotland.
52016 Pummilig Pig Casualties
This pack contains four 28mm scale white metal miniatures in two different poses. Our first dead animals in many years added to the range and we think that if they prove popular we will add more too. This is the same Pummilig Pig ridden by the Von Rotte cavalry and command as well as Krautian Dwarves and Confederation of Finklestein Dwarves too so they have many applications in your collection. Both poses are laying on their sides, one with a saddle box and legs in one position and the other with a different leg position and stance. These pigs can serve as scenario objectives or casualty markers in play or even just as decoration on your table. These miniatures will be offered in a pack suitable for a Slaughterloo division or a Flintloque section. As with all our Valon miniatures we will offer the additional choice of purchase pro-painted and based by our team of ladies here in Scotland.
Some wargamers really like to use casualties and others simply do not use them. This is all fine with us as its a personal preference thing that depends on your style of play. We take the approach of narrative especially with such as characterful game as Flintloque and corpses can add a really exciting twist to a scenario. For example perhaps your Elves are penniless and have to loot the dead during play or your Todoroni fancy a bacon sandwich and have to recover a dead pig from a contested hill side? Plenty to think about and a hoot as well to play out!
You can see the Von Rotte Legion page on our website HERE.
We will be releasing the last codes in the Von Rotte Legion across the next couple of weeks before the end of March 2015. Its been great fun showing off these sculpts and reading your reactions and we might well do it again with the next whole army development for the World of Valon. You will have to excuse me now as I have a massive Flintloque scenario to write called 'Sharkes Farmhouse'!
