Midsummer Madness with ten percent off entire website plus free Druidess

"The light of the shore brings the gap between the worlds closer at the middle point of the year when the sun is at its zenith.  The Druidess goes to the land and to the sky and to the shore as a part of the eternal cycle of life, death and re-birth.  It is a time of Midsummer and for some a time for Madness."


The middle of the year is here and with Midsummer comes madness from Alternative Armies in the form of new releases, a free new miniature, free Flintloque scenario and ten percent (10%) off everything on our website.  We will have more details on each of these at the time and we begin with the Druidess and the details of the event.


Until 7am GMT on Saturday 30th June 2018 there is 10% off every production in every range on the Alternative Armies website.  All miniatures, all books, all digital downloads and all game packs too; everything.  This blanket discount is already applied on the screen so all you need do is add to cart as normal.  An ideal time to begin an army or to get that pack you have been wanting for ages.  We also have our Events and Bundles page with the biggest savings plus our Slaughterloo Divisions for the greatest deal for fans of the World of Valon.  Go HERE and have a browse.


Every order placed with us during this event will automatically get a brand new miniature for free worth 2.50GBP included.  There is no limit upon the number of orders you can place and each of them will get the FL24-01 Druidess the symbol of Midsummer and great for any game system.  You can of course also purchase this 28mm scale resin female druid miniature if you wish to. Find her on our website HERE.
