Three new 28mm Barricades released Boxes, Barrels and Long Table

This month Alternative Armies has added three new codes to our excellent range of 28mm Terrain Range. This range, while meant for Flintloque and Slaughterloo is equally at home in any black power, horse and musket or fantasy setting.  Each pierce is full of character and there are such things as Abandoned Beer and Goods Wagons, Corpse Piles, Campaign Table, Campfire plus stone wall pieces and now three new barricades. Scatter them on your gaming table today plus you can purchase them  unpainted or painted and ready to play out of the box. Go HERE or read on for more.


The smaller barricades come two to the pack while the larger one is a single piece to the pack.  If you already have our 28mm terrain in your collection you will know just how much detail and attention there is in every model.


59530 Crate and Box Barricade (2)
Hauled from homes and warehouses as well as dockside and armoury boxes and crates can be stacked to provide a solid defence against an attacker.  As the foe slams into the wooden barricade your troops can take solace in knowing they will be able to strike back once the enemy is worn out!  This pack contains two identical high quality grey tone resin terrain pieces.  Put them on your table as an objective or cover or just for interest.  Each measures 45mm in length, 20mm  deep and 25mm tall.  You can purchase with the buttons on screen one or get three with a saving or get it pro-painted and ready to use.  There are many more images from all angles on the page. Go HERE.


59531 Beer Barrel Barricade (2)
Beer comes in barrels and ale in casks and all manner of fine tipples too.  When the village is under threat and the need comes up for defending between the houses then heaped up barrels and casks provide a ready means of fending off the foe.  Of course it is always better that the liquids within have been drained for the lost of your soldiers is only cast up higher by the loss of your refreshments! This pack contains two identical high quality grey tone resin terrain pieces.  Put them on your table as an objective or cover or just for interest.  Each measures 50mm in length, 20mm  deep and 25mm tall.  You can purchase with the buttons on screen one or get three with a saving or get it pro-painted and ready to use.  There are many more images from all angles on the page. Go HERE.


59533 Long Table Barricade
Home and hearths must give deep when the time of battle comes.  Families will give or it will be taken from them.  All manner of furniture and sacks piled with wooden planks and liberated sacks will stretch across a street allowing weapons to be loosed from behind it.  A solid wooden wall from once fine possessions which might be returned if victory is won!  This pack contains one high quality grey tone resin terrain piece. It measures 100mm in length, 20mm  deep and 25mm tall.  You can purchase with the buttons on screen one or get three with a saving or get it pro-painted and ready to use.  There are many more images from all angles on the page. Go HERE.




The barricade of crates goes really well with our 59524 Abandoned Goods Wagon while the barricade of barrels suits our 59523 Abandoned Beer Wagon down to the ground.  Put our 59525 Campaign Table behind the long table barricade for a fitting scene of command under fire.

We recently played a game of Flintloque with the new 51535 1o Condottierie Light Infantry and these terrain pieces up against 55508 Zombie Line and supported by the 51048 Elf Vivandiere supplying the Wild Elves alongside the 56116 Tap Room Ogre while 55507D Undead Casualties out in front of the barricades.  Check out the linked pages for free downloads too.  Enjoy these pictures from the game.





Here are three pictures of the unadorned resin castings of these terrain pieces.  As they are supplied if purchased unpainted.




If you would like to get into Flintloque you can with the Escape the Dark Czar beginners box set and free content HERE or check out the larger Shilling Starter Packs which contain more miniatures and a full game book each HERE.




We will return next month with more excellent World of Valon releases!  Thanks for Reading.
