DH14 Dwarf Blunderbusses at Alternative Armies

“Those Dwarfs who choose to take up the exotic weapons of the runesmiths known as 'Blunderbusses' are viewed with some suspicion by other Dwarf warriors. While they are not avoided like the beserkers are or stood back from like the pig riders they are given a healthy distance due to their choice of armament. Few know the secrets of the magic infused powder that is the fuel of the Blunderbuss and while they see an echo of the mighty bombard in the little balls that are rammed into the mouth of the weapon it is sorcery and the axe is to be preferred. In battle these Dwarfs form a great line and wait for the enemy to draw near and this can give even a Giant Troll cause for concern. Standing still with their 'sticks' these Dwarfs seem frozen in fear. But they are not. As one they touch fire to their pans and with booming retorts the blunderbuss’s fire. As if a nest of iron hornets is raised in anger the foe is decimated by these exotic weapons.” 


This code contains six different 25mm/28mm white metal miniatures approx 24mm average height. Great quality, great choice and great value too. Go HERE

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. 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.
