Tuscani Wild Elf codes released for Flintloque plus free game article

Alternative Armies is delighted to make all of this months releases for Flintloque and Slaughterloo with a unit and packs of 28mm scale white metal Tuscani Wild Elves. Troopers, Command, Character Officer and Casualty.  Expanding upon the original classic pack from the range.  Go HERE or read on for more information, images and a free three page download with game statistics and background.


“Wild Elves are stronger and more agile than their noble brothers elsewhere in Armorica. Though not as graceful or elegant they are capable of feats that would test most Orcs in strength and they are more nimble on their feet too. Tuscani have sharp protruding teeth that look like fangs and do not tend to their hair which often hangs unkempt about their broad shoulders. They are expert hunters and make good soldiers.” - taken from Uniformation the Tuscani Wild Elves.

We began by re-mastering the original 51031 pack of three Tuscani troopers with muskets and then bringing them up to a full line infantry unit with four poses of command miniatures before adding a named character to lead them and a fallen trooper for your battlefield.  New miniatures sculpted by Elton Waters and our thanks to the fantastic painter Mark Taylor for his brushwork on the miniatures in the pictures.  Tuscani fight in the ranks of the Ferach Empire and they are stronger and more nimble than Armorican Elves.  Get your Flintloque section or your Slaughterloo unit for Catalucian campaigning.
