P11 Old English Dragon classic monster released!

Back at the dawn of the 1980's a brand called Rieder Miniatures which primarily created jewellery produced a small range of wargaming miniatures.  Some of these came to Alternative Armies at its start in the 1990's and have since been or are going to be put back into production by us.  One code though in particular catches the imagination; a Dragon.  P11 Old English Dragon is a tremendous white metal monster equally at home in 28mm or 15mm scale and Alternative Armies has now put it back in to production and it is re-released today!  Go HERE or read on.

P11 Old English Dragon
This classic 1980's monster is brilliant even by today's standards.  Full of detail and expression it is a creature of rage and power.  It is composed of five white metal parts these being the body, a foot, the tail and two wings which are straight forward to assemble.  Once assembled the Dragons stands about 55m tall, 100mm or so across and about 110mm long including the tail.  Suitable for any fantasy campaign and rules system and it belongs with you if you collect Dragons as well.   You have the choice of purchasing one kit or three kits from the drop down product menu which gives you a 10% saving.  20.00GBP.  Go HERE.

You can see the parts of this Dragon model placed on a 1cm grid of square above.  Below are pictures showing the Dragon on the wargaming table alongside our DH Dwarf miniatures (about 24mm tall each) for scale and our new DH15 Dwarf Runic Golem which is 65mm tall.

As this Dragon is suitable for use in 28mm scale and in 15mm scale too as a 'Great Dragon' we have come to an arrangement with our sister brand for it to hold stock of P11 for fans of 15mm fantasy wargaming.  You can read their announcement of this HERE.

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.

    1. Thanks. We cannot take the credit for design but for the time that brought it back we can.


  2. just in time for somebody on the oldhammer group to ask "i have seen this pic and does anybody know where its from"

  3. So glad to see more oldies returning! Makes it so much easier than dealing with ebay rip-offs and the like.

    1. Thanks for your comment. I am sorry to hear you had bad experiences. Dealing with Alternative Armies a long term established company that trades openly and fairly is a very different experience. Glad you like this returned to glory Dragon.
