What is Project Darkhelm at Alternative Armies?

The Alternative Armies classic high fantasy range dates from the period of the early 1990's through to the end of that decade.  Designed by leading names in the wargaming industry and highly successful in its day this range has been on hiatus for more than ten years.  Alternative Armies, under the name 'Project Darkhelm' is dedicated to re-mastering, re-molding and re-releasing this entire range back onto the market during 2014 into 2015 and then beyond.  We will be doing this work at a measured pace and a weekly rate maintaining high quality and excellent pricing.

During and beyond this process Project Darkhelm will see the range continue to be expanded in the mediums of white metal and high grade resin using top industry designers.  Every pose in each pack is unique with no duplicates making them perfect for skirmish wargaming, roleplaying and unit building for any battle system.  Due to the totally generic nature of worldwide fantasy wargaming in 28mm scale we will not supply bases in any packs instead offering many types of bases as separate codes.

Project Darkhelm has already begun with the re-release of the classic Asgard Fantasy Barbarians range but our own range codes begins soon with DH1 Young Dwarfs which you can see in the image here.  DH1 has not been on general sale since the early 1990's and was the first pack in the Dwarfish Hosts listing of the old paper catalogue supplied to thousands of wargamers at conventions and shows and through the now long gone network of wargame shops in the UK. If you have questions then please do ask us by email or in the comments section below.

Thanks for Reading.
