Snowballe Volley free Flintloque scenario eight for Escape the Dark Czar

It is my pleasure to present to all the players of Flintloque the eighth free scenario in the Escape the Dark Czar arc for download from our website or right here in this article.  It is a large play scenario using some play test rules for the game.  Can you bring down enough animated Snowmen to live until the next dawn?  Find out now!

Additionally 5024 Escape from the Dark Czar beginners set is now back in stock with a new print run!  Thank you for your emails of notice and pre-orders on the new stock; all messages have now been replied to by priority.

A week of this.  A week in direst hell.  A week split asunder trying to find a way back to the world of fragrant flowers and warm breezes.  At a tree so tall and so dead it could be seen for leagues in any direction the band had divided and sought out the solace of a road of a track or even a path which would point the way.  They had passed out the last of the horse and unicorn meat equally and agreed to meet once more under the claw like branches after seven nights.  A way had to be found by then or only to lady luck would the choice be given.  To pick incorrectly would mean no return to Armorica and an end here in the ice and snow.

Snowballe Volley – Flintloque Scenario
The eighth scenario for Escape the Dark Czar arc sees General Saindoux and his survivors team up again with Frantz Von Der Wagg and his Dogmen Line this time around Cryptmass.  Attacked by Snowmen in the service of the Dark Czar their only hope lays with volley fire and that the lightening storm raging overhead will favour them and not the enemy.  Will the survivors drive off the coal faced menace or fall to their vast numbers?  In this large scenario you will have two players but it can also be played solo.  It features play test rules for Flintloque which you can try out.  It makes use of the free article of rules for Snowmen for Flintloque and Slaughterloo link for this below. CLICK HERE to download the scenario from our website hosting.

This scenario builds upon the miniatures from the beginners set which has ten resin 28mm miniatures plus bases and the core rules booklet for a fantastic starter price HERE. It makes use of the Witchlands Dogmen Line which is a fantastic versatile set of metal miniatures which you can see HERE.  It does not feature Captain Preserovitch's troops this time but rather the unique and fun SN07 and SN08 Fantasy and Black Powder Snowmen which you can see HERE on the website.  If you have been playing the previous scenarios you will be all caught up but if not then you need the 'Beginning in Flintloque' page.

Beginning in Flintloque. This page on our website begins your journey with the best Fantasy Napoleonic tabletop game in the world and it is where you will find all the codes used in the scenarios in the arc as well as scenics and free items such as the scenarios and video reviews of Escape from the Dark Czar and Death in the Snow by the Talking About Gaming independent channel.  There is also a page on our blog for those new to the game HERE.

If you would like to download each of the previous scenarios in this loosely linked chain, as well as articles related, then you can do so on this very article from our web hosting by clicking on the titles:

(The first three scenarios are in the 5024 Booklet which you can get as a paid digital download)

Now not only is it 2019 but we will also have a brand new full unit release for Flintloque and Slaughterloo but more on that later in January.

Thanks for Reading,
