DH9 Dwarf Adventurers at Alternative Armies

“Its not all about battles lad. Most times when out of the mountain holds its for the seeking of treasure. Dragons might love gold but we Dwarfs deserve it more since the winged beasts have the sky as their domain while we hold to the ground and gold comes from the ground after all. You can get a lot done with a band of talented beards by your side. Someone to seek out the dungeons or tombs or strongholds. Another to pick the locks and another to make sure the magics at work are put to the side. Then the axe wielded with considerable skill to deal with whatever claims ours as its own. Lastly someone to make the runes and the invocations to keep what is now ours...well ours. Against all comers. So its not all about battles sometimes its about adventure!”

This code contains five different 25mm/28mm white metal miniatures approx 24mm average height. Great quality, great choice and great value too. Go HERE.
Poses in this code are as follows:

DH9-01: Dwarf thief with Dagger.
DH9-02: Dwarf hero with Halberd in plate armour.
DH9-03: Dwarf cleric in plate mail.
DH9-04: Dwarf beserker with axe.
DH9-05: Dwarf wizard with staff.

These miniatures are not supplied with bases and are supplied unpainted. Select your choice from the drop down product menu. Choose from a pack, three packs with a 10% saving applied and single miniatures. Total choice! Assembly is required with some white metal miniatures.

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. Alternative Armies, under the name 'Project Darkhelm' is dedicated to re-mastering, re-molding and re-releasing this entire range back onto the market. 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 in new releases. Every pose in each pack is unique with no duplicates making them perfect for skirmish wargaming, roleplaying and unit building for any battle system.

Thanks for Reading.
