2nd Heavy Dragoons new packs and unit for Flintloque

The releases this month for Flintloque and Slaughterloo from Alternative Armies introduces a whole new regiment into the Army of Albion.  The 2nd Heavy Dragoons are the mounted counterpart to the existing pack of dismounted Dragoons and make use of a classic now re-mastered code as well as brand new poses for a total of five riders and one deceased Orcs.  Go HERE for the Army of Greate Britorcn or read on for more.


The Dragoons of the Army of Albion are lightly armed Orcs who use their swords and carbines to scout and range ahead of the marching battalions. If they have to fight on foot or they lose their horses they will dismount otherwise they ride into the fray.


If you play in Catalucia or Al-Garvey then these Dragoons will give you added muscle against Elf Dragoons and other Ferach forces.  A skirmish pack which has a full unit option with discount as well as packs with single pose purchase options for full customisation of your section.

This code contains five different 28mm scale metal larger Orc riders on resin Horses.  An Officer with separate pistol arm, Standard Bearer with sword and pole, Musician with bugle and two different poses of trooper with sword and carbine.  Some assembly is required and this code is supplied with our resin cartouche bases.  You can also select a full ten miniature unit with a saving which has five more randomly selected troopers added.  Miniatures are from packs 54004, 54052 and 54053.  Go HERE

We are continuing our ongoing Flintloque project which you can read about in full on our blog using the FLINTLOQUE tab on the blog to get all these posts in a line up as they proceed.  This is a mix of classic codes with new molds as well as new poses expanding those codes and new poses in new codes. Black Blob Crowfoot, Orc Exploring Officer, Major of the 45th Regiment, Dismounted Dragoons, Dark Elf Inquisitor and more thus far.


If you wish to get started in Flintloque then there is no better way than with the excellent 5024 Escape from the Dark Czar beginners set.  It contains core rules, scenarios as well as ten resin 28mm miniatures plus dice and bases.  Allowing you to learn the game and then expand in any direction.  There is also a lot of free downloads and such on our Begin in Flintloque page.
