Tuscani Light Infantry and Campaigning Back Packs released for Flintloque

“With a grunt Antoine De Vassile brought the huge rifle up to his shoulder and took aim down the iron ring set atop the barrel. The muscles in his arms strained to cope with a firelock made for an Ogre but he had practised and drilled endlessly. He had joined the Condottierie a long time ago and had hunted monsters with this rifle and had accepted the broken shoulder and endless bruising it caused him. This rifle was death to the foes of the Emperor and it was gold in his pockets for his sister and mother. In the distance among the trees the Cacadores of the Goblin enemy flitted back and forth. A ball whipped past Antoine and a puff of smoke from ahead but he did not flinch. He breathed in and led the cockade wearing officer by a fraction and then leaned into the rifle and pulled the trigger. Like a mighty hammer the weapon slammed back and his view was stolen by a great plume of grey powder smoke. Antoine dropped to one knee and put the butt of the rifle into the soft soil looking to see the results of the shot even as his hand sought another thumb sized lead sphere to load. Wind pulled the smoke away and he saw that he had hit the officer true. The Goblin sagged against the blood soaked trunk of a tree his left arm missing along with half his chest from the impact. The Cacadores around the dead officer had frozen in shock and this made De Vassile smile. He rose and smoothly dropped the bullet into the hot barrel before looking left and right along the line of Wild Elves who even now were turning the Al-Garvey soldiers back.” 


Welcome to Alternative Armies release for the Flintloque and Slaughterloo game systems for January 2019. Following up on July last year when we put the original and new line infantry Wild Elves online we are delighted to reveal the second full unit pack of Tuscani Elves who fight for the Emperor Mordred. This time the skirmishers who are elite troops and make use of some ruddy big guns! 





51535 1o Condottierie Light Infantry 
Despite a bitter enmity with the Carabiniers of the Grande Armee the skirmishers of the Wild Elves may in fact just be a little better than those elite Armoricans. Sought after by Marshals in Catalucia to hunt down Cacadores and Rifleorcs they are very good troops. They are Light Infantry and make use of Ogre Rifles. This set of miniatures in 28mm white metal gives you twelve Wild Elves a whole unit of light infantry. There are eight different poses of Tuscani Elves dressed in Condottierie uniform with bicorne and these are an Officer, a Standard Bearer, Musician, Sergeant and four different Troopers. We repeat the trooper poses in the unit pack. These miniatures are supplied with separate campaigning back packs (code BS29) which can be attached (as shown in the pictures) or left off. You can choose from a unit pack or single trooper booster. Choose from Unpainted with Bases or Painted and Based. Sculpted by Elton Waters and studio set painted by Mark Taylor. Go HERE


BS29 Campaigning Packs 
This great set is fantastic for any 28mm miniature which is out in the field in the time of Horse and Musket. Six different campaigning back packs each with its own features such as tied on sacks and bags, lengths of rope, food items, hatchet and short axe. Recessed in the rear to fit onto great coats and other uniform details. They can also be placed on bases or in dioramas as part of a terrain piece for extra interest. Choose from the set or select any single pack in any quantity. Go HERE


We have a great many 'Bits and Sprues' in the range including Pies, Tankards, Feathers, Fruit, Tools, Drum and Standard and many more. 



“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. 




Uniformation Free Downloads for Flintloque and Slaughterloo 
We have two different free resources for the Tuscani. A three page article expanding from the books 5025 War in Catalucia and 5030 Slaughterloo a resource giving you a history, character profile, game statistics and tables for Flintloque and Slaughterloo plus uniform and accounts of line and light infantry. Click HERE to download. Also a one page article on the Tuscani Skirmishers with story and optional rule. Click HERE to download. Enjoy! 


By Bloody Fist and Broken Tusk – Flintloque Scenario 
A stand alone full scenario which features some famous characters. It makes use of several free files and also the 5025 War in Catalucia game book. This is a set piece scenario which can go very differently each time it is played. You will need the four page insert for 5109 Sharkes Chosen for the character profiles it contains. Also the Tuscani Wild Elf Uniformation insert for the game statistics it contains. These are linked in the scenario three page PDF. Will Sharke escape the ambush or fall to Wild Elf skill? The scenario can also be expanded or played with two players. CLICK HERE to download it from our website hosting. 


We hope you like these new miniatures with their big guns and also the free resources. I am thinking on writing a scenario which features the newly recruited and trained Wild Elf skirmishers going up against a Jabberwock or two in a Wylde Magicke game of firelock against claws. We will see what happens but if you would like to see this scenario happen or just want to ask a question drop me a line on sales@alternative-armies.com or visit our Facebook Group

HOF130 Uplifted Yeti Platoon 15mm pack and singles released!

A new code added to the HOF 15mm Science Fiction range for January 2019. Gene Modded and created to be the big muscle of the near future for Security Force Alpha we present the Uplifted Yeti Platoon with its female Human handler with four poses in the pack. These follow up on the BearCat Battlesuit kit with its build options as well as the SFA Personalities and Dogs plus Tracker Wheeled Bikes and Portable Weapon Platforms with Gun Crew from previous releases and are great for any game system and fit right in with the rest of the array of the SFA. Go HERE or read on for more. 


“All across the core star systems and on Terra itself there is a need for security after, during and even before the high rollers and expensive kit arrives in the battle zone. Security Force Alpha is just that force filling in as police, paramilitaries, mercenaries and planetary militias too. They are the faceless grunts that do the thankless jobs needed by all those who govern, control or enforce. Use them as you will from the near to the far future!” 

Alternative Armies has embarked upon expanding the Security Force Alpha (SFA) array of codes within the HOF 15mm Science Fiction Range in conjunction with prolific wargamer Fred Richards who has a vision of space colony warfare in the near future which we find captivating and wanted to get in on. From the mind of Mr Richards and the guys at Alternative Armies comes the sixth release in this thread the big brutes with a Native American feel as a part of Fred's vision for the future. 


HOF130 Uplifted Yeti Platoon 
This pack contains four 15mm scale white metal miniatures in different poses. Three hulking genetically modified and bred creatures uplifted to sentience for use as super heavy infantry by Security Force Alpha on Earth and inter-sol too. Given a purpose and a history of the deep northern cold. Each carries a large calibre rotary chain gun with bayonet and is dressed in fixing plates and loin cloths as well as feather adornments as Yeti are organised into 'family' troops. Pose one has its weapon raised, pose two is advancing with weapon to the side and pose three is readying his weapon. Pose Four the female handler is dressed in minimal SFA armour and carrying an assault rifle wearing feathers and gear to mark her as part of the Yeti troop. Each Yeti is approx 30mm tall. Choose from a pack or single poses from the code. Supplied unassembled and unpainted without bases. 12.00GBP Go HERE







Above are some more images of the Uplifted Yetis including scale pictures alongside an SFA Trooper (16mm tall) and an SFA BearCat Battlesuit (45mm tall). These creatures add a great part to your army in many settings and campaigns. 

If you are interested in fielding a force of these Human Soldiers then you are in for a treat as there is a very wide array of choice for you. Here is a list of all of the current Security Force Alpha packs.

Gingerbread House and Were Chicken Coup unique Flintloque scenics by Tony Harwood

Recently gaming memories from 2012 were brought back to the fore over on the Notables Yahoo Group where many fans of Flintloque reside. Back then I ran a gaming blog called 'Barking Irons' an off shoot from a short lived magazine (if you can find a copy of these you are in for a treat) which featured all manner of Alternative Armies content. Foremost in terms of scenics was the work of Tony Harwood who produced some amazing scratch build unique 28mm terrain for his own collection slotting right into the World of Valon. Tony has put two of these pieces back online on his own blog. The Gingerbread House and the Were Chicken Coup. Yes, you read correctly... 

I have furnished links to Tony's blog for both of these pieces as well as some other information from 2012 which you might find of interest. The linked articles are well worth a read if you like to craft your own 28mm scenery; plenty of pictures in progress. Thus far two books have been published by this talented fellow and both are worth seeking out. 


The Gingerbread House 
Around the time of the Salute wargame show in London in 2012 a Gingerbread House was created and featured in our 'Sharkes Gingerbread' participation game of Flintloque at the show. Go HERE to read the blog post with the whole tale of how it came about. 


You can get the free scenario from that day in Stack Three by clicking on the link to download the whole free folder. It features characters from 5109 Sharkes Chosen box set and also from VLE11 The Gingerbread Set. A great read and a full adventure with game statistics for lumber cake based monsters. 


The house itself is a wonderful creation full of details and with a feel of actually being made from candy. There are more in progress build images on the blog post to enjoy. Now for something a little different. 


The Were Chicken Coup 
Beware the were chickens of Beesdone. A piece made for a friend by Tony. Sadly a dear friend to us both who is no longer with us called Roger Willcox who is the fellow behind the creation of Uncle Rogipoos (see the website for this). Based on a story you can follow the path of it HERE but in essence a nightmare of poultry many clawed terror the Were Chickens are to be avoided. 


There is not as much information on this building but you can see more in progress photos over on Tony's blog. 

I hope you enjoyed this little time travel trip back to the different world of seven years ago. Fun and mad times they were. If any other articles come along which might be of interest be assured I will relay them to you all here.
