Savage Dog free in orders and what is coming September 2021 at Alternative Armies

Bartorc stood clutching the torn bloody stump of his left wrist.  His hand was in the mouth of the mass of teeth and coarse fur that was the Pig Dog.  The Orc spoke, his voice quivering with pain to the elderly shop keeping sitting near the busily chewing creature.  “You told me your dog does not bite!”.  The old Elf smiled and nodded before replying.  “I did, I did.  But then this is not my dog.”  How was Bartorc going to load his musket handed.  Bad dog!

September is here!  All this month a free miniature in every package shipped out from Scotland to every customer. You need do nothing but place an order which requires to be shipping anywhere in the world (no Digital Download orders only sorry!) of any size and we will automatically include GRN04 Pig Dog.  As many orders as you want and ends 9am GMT 1st October 2021.  You can also order this code in any amount and you will still get the free one.  Great for 28mm fantasy and for post-apoc settings plus it is great in Flintloque as well.  From the Grinning Skull Range of madness and oddity sculpted by Will Grundy.

As you can see it is a very interesting miniature and would be a great addition to your collection.  Shown with an Orc Dragoon on foot from 54055 for a scale reference.  Go HERE.

Alternative Armies News for September 2021

We have now carried out almost all of the planned price rise across our ranges (Slaughterloo divisional army packs are last so if you want to grab one now at the old price be quick) and there are only a couple of days left in the Ikwen Uprising event from Loud Ninja Games if you wish to get in on it.  Erin our range of Celtic Mythology has returned to the website and we plan by the end of this month to get pictures of all the poses in the range on the pages (you can see Sidhe, Fomorians, Fir Bolg and others just now) so have a look at the month goes on.  

Regular Releases:  The Sengoku 15mm Japanese Fantasy range will see the value pack for set nine come to the website.  A new pack of infantry in the HOT 15mm Fantasy Range for the Savage Lizardmen.  Our new Flintloque release will be a blister pack of walking wounded (and not so motive) Dwarves for the expanding Legion de Nain.  Responding to Flintloque fans request we are bringing back a 1990's promotional item; the Kyng's Shilling during this month.  Also by request our 15mm Fell Beast will be available on its own as well as with a choice of five different Wraith riders.

Tabletop Gaming:  We will have a free Flintloque article with solo play scenario called 'Good Doggie' which will give you rules for the Pig Dog and some fun suitable for many different campaign regions on Valon.  There shall also be a solo play Patrol Angis scenario which sees Duxis Battlesuits of Prydia facing off against Yordan Havelock Battlesuits called 'Knight to Remember'.  See all of our free material currently to download on the WEBSITE and HERE on the site for The Ion Age too.

As always if you have any questions or would like to make a suggestion or ask if we can restore or release something you are looking for then contact us on and we will do our best to assist you.
