OH Goblin Raiders, Spear and Wolf Cavalry Packs Released!


Alternative Armies is proud to now release more classic 25mm /28mm scale miniatures as part of our ongoing programme to bring our mighty range back to the world of wargaming. Following up on the two codes in the 'Kev's Creatures' range KC1 Lesser Goblins and KC2 Mountain Orcs we now have four more codes giving you OH Goblin Infantry and Cavalry to put into the fray!

The four packs are as follows:


OH3 Cros Goblin Raiders
“Damn the name of Yardugul Cros to the deepest depths of the vile pit that spawned him.  His raiders have slaughtered peasants and nobles alike and while the commoners matter not to the throne the loss of persons of quality must be stopped.  The city guard will lay an ambush and when Cros raiders arrive eager for blood and plunder they will meet out steel and our lances.  Yardugal Cros will die by my blade and the rest of his Goblin vermin will be skewered upon poles to line the road back to the palace.  This will be and I Baron Hardstrain will see to it!” 

This code contains five different 25mm / 28mm white metal miniatures approx 21mm average height.  Great quality, choice and value. 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. Go HERE. Poses in this code are as follows:

OH3-01: Goblin squatting with pained expression, holding sword.
OH3-02: Goblin with Axe raised and shield.
OH3-03: Goblin with dead Crow standard.
OH3-04: Goblin running with shield and Scimitar.
OH3-05: Goblin standing growling with Axe lowered.


OH4 Cros Goblin Spears
“I shall take none of the blame in this debacle.  The fault lays with the knights, with the squires and with the peasantry who fled in the face of Yardugal Cros warband of Goblins.  It is true that we did not think them so many.  It is true that we did not think them so well armed and armoured.  It is also true that due to an illness brought upon me during the previous night I had to led the ambush from the rear.  It is not true that I shook in my satin boots at the sound of screams and sword clash nor that I hid in a pig sty and befouled my silk breeches.  Yardugal narrowly carried the field...next time he will be mine!”

This code contains five different 25mm / 28mm white metal miniatures approx 21mm average height.  Great quality, choice and value. 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.

OH4-01: Goblin armoured and lunging with Spear.
OH4-02: Goblin armoured leaning on Spear.
OH4-03: Goblin armoured running ducked with Spear and shield.
OH4-04: Goblin capering, armoured with Spear and shield.
OH4-05: Goblin armoured with horned helm and Spear advancing.


OH5 Goblin Wolf Cavalry I
“With a speed that is deceptive and agility unmatched by any horse the wolf riders can appear from a tree line and charge with little time to react to them.  Ranging far ahead of the Goblin hordes they are scouts and mounted archers and while no threat to an army they are a pest and can be lethal for an isolated garrison or patrol.  Often the howl of the wolves is the portent of doom for those poor souls.”

This code contains two different 25mm / 28mm white metal miniatures (four pieces) approx 26mm average height assembled.  Great quality, choice and value. These miniatures are not supplied with bases and are supplied unpainted.

OH5-01: Goblin Rider with Sword and shield.  Wolf in walking or running pose.
OH5-02: Goblin Rider with Mace and shield. Wolf in walking or running pose.


OH7 Goblin Wolf Cavalry II
“I know the horses of the Imperial Guard are trained to kick and stomp and even bite the foes as their riders sweep with sword and level with lance but the wolf riders of the Goblins are worse for a poor foot archer like me.  Worse because they stalk you, they circle you and then they lope in low and fast before baring yellowed teeth and trying to tear your throat out.  Ignore the screaming Goblin on its back...make sure your last arrow finds the eye of the wolf!” 

This code contains two different 25mm / 28mm white metal miniatures (four pieces) approx 26mm average height assembled.  Great quality, choice and value.

These packs are added to the Goblin and Orc Horde page of our website to the codes already there. There will be further releases in the near future.

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 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.

Lastly as many of you will know Alternative Armies offers a full pro-painting service with custom basing to its customers but did you know that as well as Flintloque, Slaughterloo, Erin and Typhon you can also get our 28mm scale Fantasy miniatures painted and based from us at great prices?  Since we manufacture our own miniatures and hand paint them here in Scotland you get superb value.  Go along to our Pro-Paint Miniatures page to see our latest stock which, for fantasy, is sets of KC2 Mountain Orcs at just 6.00GBP each or 15.00GBP for the set of three.  Painted and on 30mm round bases they are big and mean and ready for your wargaming table.

Thanks for Reading.
