52524 Legion de Nain Grenadiers released and the Bier Wars

“I think that if the peoples of the Krautan League had known what Mordred meant by freedom and liberty they would have tore the ears off any Elf they met.  As it was the agents of Armorica used us Dwarves as willing participants in our own downfall.  Blood followed Krolsberg beer into the rivers and soil as we were divided and fought amongst ourselves. We were all brother regardless of beard length. The Battle of Worstweiser saw two legions face off as mortal enemies.  Liberty said the Elves...a confederation of slaves was the end result of the Bier Wars.” Harold Brekmeister the learned Dwarf  (historian and scholar at Monich University)

The Legion de Nain grows with the second brand new full unit release in the Beir Wars; this time the Legion de Nain Grenadiers!  Every one of these Dwarves is a character in its own right full of personality.  If missed what has already occurred, new Legion de Nain Line,  re-mastered classic and expanded Legion codes and new Pummilig Pig plus Riding Boar you can read about these on our blog on the Beir Wars TAB.  Go HERE for the Confederation of Finklestein on the website where all these miniatures reside.

52524 Legion de Nain Grenadiers: This is the heavy assault company of a legion battalion armed with Blunderbuss and Grenades dressed for all weathers in long coat, boots and the Raupenhelm (caterpillar helmet).  An Officer foot on stone with a war hammer, Banner Bearer with Blunderbuss, Sergeant thrusting with Halberd and a Musician beating the drum.  Four different poses of grenadier trooper these being throwing grenade, lighting grenade, aiming grenade (all with blunderbuss) and firing blunderbuss.  All have packs on their backs and items such as bed rolls and satchels about their persons.

You can choose from a pack of ten miniatures (all eight poses plus two more random troopers) or a unit of twenty (ten more troopers with a saving built in) or a single booster of one pose.  Order the single and you will get one random trooper, order more singles and we will give you different troopers.  If you want a command pose single that is explained the page. Go HERE for 52524 and scroll through the pictures on its page as after the main images there is a front and rear of every pose so that you can see them in great detail.  Check out those beards!

The Legion de Nain Line!  The first new unit code in the Beir Wars project.

As we progress in this year more releases will happen monthly as we expand the Legion de Nain and work towards it as a full force of all arms (the biggest ever expansion to the miniature range for a single army) we will also be slowly putting together a Flintloque campaign book on the Monich Beir War too.  Resident Valonian artist Edward Jackson will once again be creating artwork for this title.  Follow this on the Bier Wars TAG of our blog.

There are now thirty poses in the Legion. Above is General Saindoux an Elf character from 5024 Escape the Dark Czar next to grenadier Dwarves for scale.

If you would like to get into Flintloque in the lands of the Dwarfs then look no further than 5028 Beir and Bones game book.  On its own with full rules in print or as a digital download or as a shilling starter pack with miniatures and scenarios.  Go HERE.

If you have any questions please contact us on and ask.

These new chaps are the Bombe!
