New Grand Howitzers and Dead Rams in 28mm for Flintloque and Historical

Now that I have managed to stop the Klorzids from biting me (plus several asks for a Flintloque article featuring them..maybe...) it is time for new releases for Flintloque, Slaughterloo and historical wargaming in 28mm.  This time we have three new artillery pieces and a pack of casualties.  Check out the Artillery of Valon and the Battlefield Accessories or read on to see and learn more.  Thank you.


The Grand Howitzer is a medium to heavy artillery piece for your Ferach Empire, Grand Alliance or Witchlands forces.  They fit right in with the rest of the artillery park and would be in game terms a 4 Inch to 5.5 Inch Howitzer.  Go HERE.


59527 Ferach Grand Howitzer
This is a 28mm scale white metal artillery kit for the Ferach Empire. Comprising four pieces which are a grand howitzer barrel (4 to 5.5 Inch bore), a cannon body and two wheels. Easy to assemble and once assembled measures 50mm long, 40mm wide and 30mm tall. Suitable for use in any 28mm Historical system or in Flintloque and Slaughterloo. 3.50GBP per pack.  You can also purchase the gun assembled and painted. Go HERE.


59528 Alliance Grand Howitzer
This is a 28mm scale white metal artillery kit for the Grand Alliance. Comprising four pieces which are a grand howitzer barrel (4 to 5.5 Inch bore), a cannon body and two wheels. Easy to assemble and once assembled measures 50mm long, 40mm wide and 30mm tall. Suitable for use in any 28mm Historical system or in Flintloque and Slaughterloo. 3.50GBP per pack.  You can also purchase the gun assembled and painted. Go HERE.


59529 Witchlands Grand Howitzer
This is a 28mm scale white metal artillery kit for the Undead of the Witchlands or if you wish for a damaged look to your cannons. Comprising four pieces which are a grand howitzer barrel (4 to 5.5 Inch bore), a cannon body and two wheels. Easy to assemble and once assembled measures 50mm long, 40mm wide and 30mm tall. Suitable for use in any 28mm Historical system or in Flintloque and Slaughterloo. 3.50GBP per pack.  You can also purchase the gun assembled and painted. Go HERE.



We have many other artillery pieces in our range including a Mortar and a Three Barrelled Cannon which can all be seen HERE.

Our other release into the World of Valon for this week is a casualty pack which will be of interest to players of Joccian Rats and Hob Goblins of Taffsea...dead riding rams!


53017 Dead Rams
This pack contains four 28mm scale resin riding rams in two different poses.  Suitable as battlefield scenics or as casualty markers for your characters or cavalry units.  The riding ram is the same animal used by the Joccian Hussars and the Taffsea Ram Raiders in their cavalry formations. One ram has collapsed to the ground its legs spread out and the other is on its side and both have saddles and tackle on them.  4.00GBP per pack and you can also purchase this pack pro-painted.  Go HERE.


Check out the riders for these woolly and fierce creatures.  56532 Joccian Hussars and 56535 Joccian Command as well as 56536 Joccian Engineers.  There is also 5106 Taffsea Ram Raiders box set plus 53010 Taffsea Colonel.

I am toying with a Flintloque article titled "Rambo'ne" which features these dead rams as well as other dead animals and rules for taking flesh from them in play and also recovering them for later trading.  It applies to all armies on Valon..well except the Undead.  A generic addition for your scenarios with a built in scenario featuring Joccian Hussars.

Thanks for Reading.
