First Look at the Rache Carabiniers for Flintloque

Welcome to the first look article for the next release in the Ruined Kingdom of Pudigrochumsberg army for Flintloque and Slaughterloo.  This new code will be released at the start of December and follows up on 56591 Hundmorder Dragoons, 56589 Pudigroan Dogman Line and 56123 Pudigroan Line Casualties from this autumn.  You can see them all on the Pudigroan page of our website HERE. We want to show you these great 28mm original miniatures.  This time as inked 'tins' master castings in white metal which are now part of the production process. 

Here is the code, description as well as images of the excellently trained light infantry of this burned and blackened land.  The Rache Carabiniers!

56588 Rache Carabiniers
This will be a set of 28mm white metal Dogman miniatures which will give you the light infantry and skirmishers for the sections and units of your new force.  These are meant for use with the rest of the coming and exisiting Pudigrochumsberg packs but they will also serve well in Confederation of Finklestein collections and also revolutionary older style Ostarian Empire forces.  Sculpted by our lead designer Sam Croes there are eight different models in this set and they will be available as a full unit (12) as well as a trooper booster (1) as well.  As with all our Valon miniatures we will offer the additional choice of purchase pro-painted and based by our team of ladies here in Scotland. 

The poses are from left to right in the pictures, beginning with the command poses, an officer holding a pistol and hand on sword hilt.  Then a musician blowing a horn, a standard bearer whose pole has a stylised metal Elf Head on its top and a sergeant with spontoon and pistol.  The Trooper poses are advancing, loading, marching and lastly taking aim.  All are armed with short carbines and wear a 'Hungarian' style bearskin along with carrying a sword.  The Carabiniers are skirmishers that often act alongside Dragoons using the same equipment and weapons.  While they lack the long range hitting power of some Light Infantry they are better armed for and more skilled in melee combat. These Dogmen are all 'poodle' types making them the same average height and bulk as an Elf.  They would make an excellent skirmish section in their own right. 

Coming in early December 2015!

Our eventual aim is to make the Ruined Kingdom of Pudigrochumsberg army for Flintloque and Slaughterloo a totally complete one as we did with the Von Rotte Dwarf Legion at the start of this year.  This means line infantry, casualties, light infantry, cavalry, command, artillery and more.  Its an even bigger line up of releases than for the Von Rotte which you can see HERE.  Feel free to ask me questions on

I also want to thank you all for the purchase of the recently released Hundmorder Dragoons codes which you can see HERE.  This has become one of the most popular sets of the year very quickly. We are glad you like them.

Thanks for Reading
