54508 Orc Artillery Crew – Flintloque 004

The Flintloque project for 2020 continues with the forth and so far largest freshened pack now updated and back on the website.  Read about this ongoing project in full on our BLOG.  See the FLINTLOQUE tab on the blog to get all these posts in a line up as they proceed.  Now on with the miniatures and there is a wee offer on these codes as well as a treat.


54508 Orc Artillery Crew
The Orcs of Albion are good with all manner of artillery. This code gives you an Orc gun crew with limber horses which go with any Grand Alliance cannon, howitzer, mortar or any other artillery piece.  An officer in bicorne with papers (1), gunner with ball (2) [note pose 2 is repeated in this code], gunner with rammer and bucket (3), gunner pulling holding on shako (4), gunner pulling looking around (5) plus limber horse with saddle (6) and limber horse with blinkers (7).   Find rules for artillery in 5027 Grapeshotte and 5030 Slaughterloo.  Supplied with resin cartouche bases and unpainted.  The average gunner is 28mm tall.  Go HERE.


We have added the choice with this code of purchasing one random gunner and also just a pair of limber horses.  As with all our 'single trooper' booster options you will get a random gunner but if you order several you will get a different one in rotation until all possible poses are used up.  Also if you wish a certain pose, for instance the officer, then all you need do is contact us on sales@alternative-armies.com with your order number and it will be so!


Most of the Army of Albion is in Catalucia. After the débâcle of the Retreat to Kooruna and then the victories in Al-Garvey such as at the massively fortified Lines of Tornandbleedasse turning the Ferach back the Orcs once more marched into Catalucia. The role of the artillery in this advance cannot be overestimated and in the dry scrub plains it does grand work.  

We have a number of artillery pieces which will work with the artillery crews.  Such as the 59528 Grand Alliance Howitzer featured here.  See them all on the website in our artillery park HERE.

This is our last Flintloque miniature news for the month.  There is a free article plus a Kitton release.  Remember our shipping and pricing structure will change from Monday 24th February. Read about this on our BLOG.

Thanks for Reading,

GBS
