Brand New Resin Flintloque Pig free in all orders!

Those who are in regular contact with us will know that we have had our resin production department in operation for more than six months now.  That means its now Alternative Armies turn to begin putting out resin products in earnest.

From today the 28th of July 2014 Alternative Armies has begun the production casting of the first resin models in the World of Valon.  That is the Flintloque and Slaughterloo ranges.  This means that we are no longer a totally high quality white metal casting company and while we have only begun the journey compared to our little brother The Ion Age we are intent upon it. It is our intention to re-master into high grade resin our largest soldiers and biggest cavalry mounts to keep them affordable in this world of rising costs.  We will report more on this as it progresses of course. But enough of that and on to the announcement!

The Uhlans Von Krautia riding pig as it was originally known was created in the middle of the 1990's and is a firm favourite with Dwarf players of Flintloque and Slaughterloo.  I gave it an official name during the development of Flintloque 3rd edition in 2007 and it stuck with a sense of humour. 

From today until further notice we will be placing one free 28mm scale fantasy 'pummilig pig' into every order going out of our doors.  We like giving things away and this riding pig works with any smaller rider such as a Dwarf.  It will let you see what we are up to and its a nice example and gift too.  As I said until further notice since this freebie will change.  You need do nothing the pig will be included automatically.

Thanks for Reading.
