LERGO JAGERS
The Trolkin are unlike any other race on Valon they are still somewhat Magicke and their differing skin colours (from grey to red and yellow too) show this along with their distinct fashion sense. Trolkin soldiers always seem to wear uniforms that are too small for them despite their outfitter the ‘Marske’ trading company delivering as many as they need. Lergo refers to the way their troops are raised, a unique modular system that choosing the Trolkin by standard height and different colours to make up formations that can be re-purposed again and again. The structure of a Trolkin Regular line battalion is as follows. Two Battalions makes a Regiment. Each battalion contains one thousand Trolkin at full muster and has ten companies one of which is designated Jager (Light Troop) and one Mountain (Grenadier). Each company has a hundred Trolkin which are separated into two Platoons and a headquarters element. A Section normally has ten to fifteen Trolkin including an Officer, junior Officer a Sergeant or two, a musician and standard bearer, the rest being Privates. Line Infantry and also Sergeants are armed with a Dwarf MkII Musket, Officers have a variety of melee weapons or a pistol. Their uniform consists of a dark blue tunic, white breeches, a black shako and black shoes. Facing colours (cuffs, collars, etc.) are green, trimmed in yellow. Equipment is black and brown, with equipment straps being of white leather.

You can also field these miniatures as a more elite light infantry force with a change of uniform colours.  Read on:

THE KROLSBERG JAGERS
The purpose trained Light Infantry of the Trolkin, the Krolsberg are a refeshing, probably the most refreshing, sight for many cut off Elves and Dwarves in need of rescue from the Undead and the snow. They make use of Dwarf Jager Rifles and are naturals at survival in the Witchlands. The structure of the Krolsberg Jager’s is two Light Troop battalions and is as follows. Each battalion contains eight hundred Trolkin at full muster and has four companies all of whom are Light Troop. Each company has two hundred Trolkin which are separated into four Platoons and one headquarters elements. A Section normally has ten to fifteen Trolkin including an Officer, a lesser Officer, a couple of Sergeants, a musician and standard bearer, the rest being Knects. They are armed with a Dwarf Jager Rifle , Officers have a mace, Sergeants have a variety of weapons. Their uniform consists of a dark grey tunic, grey breeches, a black shako and black shoes. Facing colours are blue, trimmed in yellow. Equipment is black with equipment straps being white.


There is a full free booklet on the Trolka and Trolkin which you can download as a PDF from us by clicking HERE.  This booklet contains a full army list along with Flintloque rules, Slaughterloo rules, background, fiction, tales, pictures and much, much more in its eighteen pages.  Well worth a read!

The natural place for the Trolkin is in colder climes so it makes sense that the majority of their soldiers are in the Witchlands fighting against the Undead.  You can learn more about this campaign in 5026 Flintloque 3rd Edition Death in the Snow game book.  Trolka and Trolkin enjoy some advantages in battling against Zombies and Skeletons and indeed their physical size and resilience stands them in good stead against Vampyres too.  Click HERE to visit the website to read more. These new Trolkin Jager miniatures were sculpted by Rob Alderman who also designed the other Trolkin codes as well as other packs in the World of Valon range.
