Phree Riders and Bisons added to the 28mm Frontear range

It is our great delight to announce the release of more miniatures sculpted by John Bell (creator of the Sengoku 15mm Japanese Fantasy range) into the Frontear game system.  Phree Riders!  Following up on last month's Phree Brave packs as well as the Logann Brave packs and the mighty Wendigo these tall 28mm scale birdmen fit right into the game and any other suitable wargame too.  Riding on Bison which can also be had on their own too.  See the whole range HERE including the book as a digital download plus Orc Gunfighters, Civile Warre Soldiers, Frontear's Orcs and Dark Elf Banditos too.

"Elsewhere in North Amerka, different Tribes reacted in a far more hostile manner to the Uropeans’ arrival. Word filtered through to the Uropeans settling the west coast of a different race inhabiting the continent’s arid south, and the Great Plains further east. An Avian race called the Phree made their home here; hunter gatherers. These fiercely territorial people had not taken kindly to the Catalucians encroachment on their ancestral hunting grounds. Their Shaman had experienced a profound loss of power, but most infuriating of all to the wandering Phree was the fact that they could no longer fly as they once had. A whole generation had been set-a-foot, never they believed to experience the wonders and freedom of flight again. The eagle like Phree could have become demoralised like the Macaw, or suspicious and withdrawn like the Logann; instead, they became hostile and the Catalucians paid in blood for every mile they travelled North in their pursuit of gold. Out numbered and outgunned, the Phree nevertheless knew the country like the back of their wings and that, coupled with their native courage and ferocity, made them an adversary to be feared." Frontear game book.

Three new codes which can be has as packs or as single miniatures too.  A Phree stands about 35mm from sole of foot to beak and upon the bison they are about 45mm tall.  Armed with spear, shield, axe and bows they are sculpted by John Bell.  Sadly we were unable to get a set of these miniatures painted before release but we hope these sharp images of the metal will serve the purpose.  Go HERE.

The Bison upon which the Phree ride can be had on their own in code 7126. Each is about 50mm long and 30mm tall. They join our riding Pig, Boar, Dodo, Horses, Lizards, Rhinos, Hippo, Gnoll and much more suitable for any rider in our Battlefield Bits and Others range.  You can also find our extensive array of bits and sprues in this range for such things as feathers, tankards, pies, fruit, cooked meat, weapons and back packs.

Thanks for Reading,
