Trolkin Civilians are Flintloque release for July 2016!

“In many places on Valon when the recruiter beats his drum and promises coin to young men if they will only take up arms and fight for their Kyng or Emperor the response is immediate as the mothers, wives and sisters of these lads cannot stop them.  But not so in the Troll lands for the ladies of Copendaz could bare knuckle box a horse to the ground with ease.  In fact the Emperor Mordred has considered forming regiments of these stony fleshed broads..but he has yet to find the courage to ask them!”

Welcome to our only release for Flintloque and Slaughterloo for July 2016. It is a new pack sculpted by Rob Alderman which gives you normal folk for your Trolkin forces in aid of the Tyrant Emperor Mordred.  A pack of four different Trolkin civilians, three female and one male.  These are excellent townsfolk or villagers for your scenarios and line up alongside our other civilian blister packs as well as the Trolkin soldiers for the games.  Go HERE for this month's release or read on for details.

Trolkin civilians are about 30mm tall and powerfully built. Excellent for use in scenarios or for the baggage train of the Trolkin and Trolka army.  Choose from a pack or a pro-painted and based pack ready for play.  8.00GBP.  Go HERE.
