54013 Orc Dismounted Dragoons – Flintloque 001

Flintloque the Skirmish and by extension the mass battle game Slaughterloo use miniatures from the huge 28mm World of Valon range.  Since 1995 the fantasy Napoleonioque setting has grown and grown adding new races and regiments and characters all the while.  Now in 2020 there are more than one thousand miniatures across twenty nations as well as five books and a beginners set as well.  Alternative Armies is now commencing with a project to re-master and re-mold many of the classic 90's codes in the range to make them 'fresh' for players and collectors. As well as this we will be, in places, expanding a pack into two packs or even an entire force filling in suggested gaps from Flintloque and Slaughterloo feedback.  This is on top of our usual molding as we do to keep figures in production.  

We shall announce it each time a pack is made fresh in this project.  We plan to focus on Greate Britorcn that being Orcs, Ratmen, Bog Orcs and Ogres but we will be touching on the Undead and Ferach Empire too.  As well as new larger images we shall, each time, place the pack on special offer for a while as a treat.  Some of these packs will have new free articles written for them too.  We aim to make such announcements several times a month.  See the FLINTLOQUE tab on the blog to get all these posts in a line up.  Now for the first such pack...001 as it were for 2020!


54013 Orc Dismounted Dragoons
The Dragoons of the Army of Albion are lightly armed Orcs who use their swords and carbines to scout and range ahead of the marching battalions.  If they have to fight on foot or they lose their horses they will dismount. Three 28mm scale metal larger Orcs dismounted from the Dragoons.  Armed with Swords and Pistols they are dynamic poses great for skirmishing and acting as officers and cavalry on foot.  Each miniature in this pack is about 30mm tall.  Pose 1 is aiming with pistol.  Pose 2 is in greatcoat and holding sword.  Pose 3 is waving while holding sword.  Miniatures are supplied unpainted and with our resin cartouche bases.  Go HERE for full information.


There is a link to two free articles on the Dragoons page taken from Orcs in the Webbe's 2019 Advent Calendar. 


If you are new to Flintloque then it is well worth going along to our website the Begin in Flintloque page of resources, starter set and scenarios.
