56591 Hundmorder Dragoons for Flintloque released!

Much like their litter brothers this formation of light cavalry ride into the fray seeking the heads of Ostarians or failing that Krautians.  They are good cavalry and are often seen harrying enemies between major battles.  There are two regiments each with ten squadrons of about fifty riders each.  A squadron has two sections and a command element meaning a section has roughly ten Cavalry on light horses in it.  An officer, standard bearer, musician, sergeant along with troopers.  Armed with Carbines and Swords their uniforms are as follows. The uniform consists of a a light orange tunic, white breeches, a black shako with silver and an orange plume, black shoes. Facing colours (cuffs, collars, etc.) are light blue. Equipment is black with equipment straps being of white leather.

56591 Hundmordor Dragoons 
A new set of 28mm white metal Dogman miniatures giving you the light cavalry sections and units of your new Pudigrochumsberg force.  These are meant for use with the rest of the coming Pudigrochumsberg packs but they will also serve well in Confederation of Finklestein collections and also revolutionary older style Ostarian Empire forces.  Sculpted by our lead designer Sam Croes there are five different models (riders) in this set as well as a horse (taken from 51509) and they are available as a full unit (10) as well as a skirmish set (5) and a trooper booster (1) as well.  As with all our Valon miniatures we offer the additional choice of purchase pro-painted and based by our team of ladies here in Scotland.  The poses are from left to right in the pictures an officer pointing out the enemy with his hand on a sheathed sword, musician blowing on a bugle and scabbarded sword, a standard bearer with a pole topped with a plain cylinder head, trooper with drawn sword raised and lastly a trooper aiming carbine.  All models are wearing a fur trimmed hat.  Hundmorder Dragoons carry a straight sword and a carbine (shortened musket) and can operate as infantry when needed.  Go HERE.

These Dogmen are all 'poodle' types making them the same average height and bulk as an Elf.  They would make an excellent skirmish section in their own right.  The horse in this code is taken from code 51509 and well suited to cavalry operating in a colder part of Urop near Diberia as the horses have cloth protection for the face.   Go HERE.

Our eventual aim is to make the Ruined Kingdom of Pudigrochumsberg army for Flintloque and Slaughterloo a totally complete one as we did with the Von Rotte Dwarf Legion at the start of this year.  This means line infantry, casualties, light infantry, cavalry, command, artillery and more.  Its an even bigger line up of releases than for the Von Rotte.  Now that we have Line Infantry, Infantry Casualties and Light Cavalry what will be next...find out later this month and one more release for Pudigrochumsberg before Christmas. Feel free to ask me questions on

Lastly this message will be across all news and releases this month.  November is a big month and will be filled with many Fantasy and Flintloque releases and offers.  All orders this month will get a free VNT31-05 Liche Lord miniature automatically included read about this HERE.  At the end of this month we will be taking part in a Black Friday Weekend event with our sister sites and The Ion Age.  This will be a great offer and will be explained in greater detail nearer the end of November.  

Thanks for Reading.
