52517 Von Rotte Dwarf Command Set Released!

Welcome to the new year and to a year that will see an entire army added to the miniatures line for Flintloque and for Slaughterloo plus even more. This begins today with the release of the first brand new code in the Von Rotte Legion; 52517 Von Rotte Command Set. We will be releasing a new set or unit code every month until the army is complete. We will also be previewing the next release a couple of weeks before it is released to let you all see what is coming. Read on for more information. CLICK HERE to visit the Von Rotte page on our website. 

52517 Von Rotte Command Set 
This a set of six 28mm white metal and two resin miniatures full of character. Officers both foot and mounted used to command your Von Rotte or any other Finklestein Dwarves in your forces. Four officers on foot suitable for command of line infantry, elite infantry, light infantry or artillery. In keeping with the Slaughterloo officer types we have an Aggressive, a Dastardly, a Heroic and a Cowardly officer. The Heroic officer in tricorne with bier stein, a Cowardly officer with pocket watch open a monocle and a worried expression. A bare headed Dastardly officer with a telescope and tricorne under his arm. Finally the Aggressive officer charging head long with a sword raised and beard a flowing. There are also two mounted officers on resin Pummilig Pigs the favourite mount of Valon Dwarves. A lesser and greater officer suitable for commanding your division, your section or as aide de camps. One is bare headed with a war hammer raised while the other sports a tricorne and a raised pistol. This set has a place in a Dwarf player's collection giving armies the personality officers they want. Go HERE

Choose from the full set or select one single officer on foot to boost your forces. All miniatures can be purchased unpainted and are supplied with bases or pro-painted with sculpted basing effect. Use the drop down options menu on the product page of your choice for details. 

Some would say these short fellows are the finest regular infantry on Valon. Their regimental histories read like a scroll of the entire era of black powder war in Urop. The structure of a Regular line battalion is as follows. Fusilier battalions are two to the regiment and each is composed of nearly eighteen hundred Dwarves plus officers and staff. A battalion was divided into six large equal companies, one of which designated as a skirmish company of Light Troops. Each company has about three hundred Dwarves which are separated into six Platoons and three headquarters elements. A Section normally has ten to fifteen Dwarves including an Officer, a lesser Officer, a couple of Sergeants, a musician and standard bearer, the rest being Soldats. They are armed with a Dwarf Musket MkII , Officers have a Sword, Sergeants have a Musket. The uniform consists of a red tunic, white breeches, a black tricorne and black shoes. Facing colours (cuffs, collars, etc.) vary. Equipment is black and brown, with equipment straps being of white leather. 

The natural place for the Von Rotte is central Urop fighting against the Dogmen of Ostaria and the Dwarves of Krautia. You can learn more about this campaign in 5028 Flintloque 3rd Edition Beir & Bones game book. Click HERE to visit the website to read more on this book. There are other codes in the Von Rotte range already including the Baron himself on Bristle the pig as well as Line Infantry and Grenadiers. We are on our way to a full army and a full divisional army pack too. 

Thanks for Reading.
