Kitton a new 28mm range of Fantasy Catmen begins!

Alternative Armies is delighted to bring to you a new expansion to the World of Valon.  Kitton!
See all articles for this range on our blog by clicking HERE.


Far from Urop and beyond the Mordredian Wars away from the battle between the Ferach Empire and the alliances against it is a land almost sealed off from the rest of Valon. Sealed by fate and by the tumult caused by the shattering of the bonds of Wylde Magicke.  This land is called Kitton home of the Kitoka.  The Kitoka lived in harmony with the mountainous land around them and under the sway of the strange creatures which inhabited its forests, streams and fields but that was before the great war. Started by the shattering of the laws of Wylde Magicke this war brought chaos to Kitton and great tumult in nature.  This war ended with the titanic battle of Sekimeowara which saw the Kitoka victorious against arrayed magicke creatures.  The war resulted in the rule of the Tiddlesgawa Shogunate.  The feline Kitota live in a rigid society topped by the Daimyo lords then the Samurai warriors, the Ashigaru soldiers below them then the merchants and peasants and the outcast Ronin most lowly of all.  Skirmishes between Daimyo are common as are bandit raids and attacks by monstrous yokai too.  Welcome to Kitton!


We introduce to you the latest expansion in the World of Valon.  It is rather different in flavour for though it occurs at the same time as the rest of the 4th Age of Valon it is distant to the Power Ring and science.  We begin with two packs of Kitoka Ronin.  Outcast former Samurai who are perfect core for your building band of characters.  Highly detailed metal 28mm scale miniatures depicting Japanese inspired Catmen sculpted by our lead designer Sam Croes.  From these two packs totalling eight miniatures we will be releasing more codes each month as we populate the islands of Kitton. Go HERE. These are the new miniatures!



In much the same manner as Flintloque itself came into being we will be growing the Kitton range before we release a beginners set similar to 5024 Escape the Dark Czar.  It is our intent to get to the beginners set and then beyond it with soldiers, civilians, female miniatures and monsters too.  Skirmish gaming is the aim.  I know what you are thinking next...mass battle and yes we have factored in units to lead to a 5030 Slaughterloo level of play.  It is a long term project but much like our first Contender GNAT 15mm mech which is a first with more to follow and new game books such as Doom Squad with titles to come Alternative Armies is committed to tabletop gaming!


Kitton has its own new page on our website where all miniatures, articles, links and so forth will appear.  Visit it HERE.


Lastly as you may know Alternative Armies offers pro-painted and based miniatures ready to ship on our website. Our talented team of ladies here in Scotland add codes to their pages on the site weekly and right now they have limited stock of these two new Kitton packs just released. If you want your figures ready to use out of the box at a great price see HERE.

  1. Very tempting! I've no use for them yet, but I'll think about them.

    ...especially as, with a French play on words, they could be called "chat-mouraïs chat-ponais"...

    1. Thank you. I hope you consider them in the future.

      Ha! Yes in French that is very good.

    1. Thanks for your comment Kim. Yes that is the plan to do a separate but same engine Flintloque version called 'Kitton'. It was one of the projects halted due to the pandemic alongside Erin, En Garde, USEME and others. There are more miniatures coming and the rules will feature all aspects of the setting. We will announce on the blog when movement begins. GBS

  3. Interesting range.
    I can’t believe it, but Kiton and Sengoku make me interested in medieval fantasy Japan.
    Waiting for rules and a begginers set or a shilling starter set for Kiton (and Sengoku too).

    1. Thank you. Yes it is a very interesting period and mythology even without the fantasy Catmen. We are working on a book for Kitton but it is delayed. There is no starter set for Sengoku but I recommend all you need for a small game is Sengoku Set 1 and the Guild Hunters, for a larger game add Sengoku Set 2. GBS
