Joccian Riding Cows and new Limber Cow now in resin

There were rumours about a while back that Alternative Armies would be continuing the re-mastering of the existing mounts range for Flintloque and also perhaps expanding the Joccian Army as well. It was true! Last week the new 56520 Joccian Light Infantry made its debut and now we have not only replaced the white metal riding Highland Cow with a resin version with a price reduction but we also have a new limber Highland Cow which is with the artillery crew and divisional box too. Go HERE for the Army of Greate Britorcn or read on for all the codes which have been updated. This is our last Valon release and news for the month of May 2018. 

The new resin Highland Cows are identical to the white metal ones except in a change to a high quality grey tone resin for the body (the separate head remains in white metal) so your riders will continue to be ideally suited to their bovine charges. 

Here are pictures of the Highlands Cows showing their parts and sizes. The riding cow has a saddle and works with most 28mm riders who fit wider horses. The new limber cow is fitted with tackle and also has a yoke and also a saddle if you wish to place a rider upon it. You can purchase these creatures in the new 56511L Riding and Limber Cows code selecting either cow in any quantity on the page to add to your forces. There are five codes altered with this news.

They are light cavalry armed with swords. Choose from a single trooper, pack of five or a unit of ten each with a saving. There is an officer, standard bearer and a trooper pose.
