Dismounted Orc Heavy Dragoons new packs and unit for Flintloque

The new releases this month for Flintloque and Slaughterloo from Alternative Armies introduces the counterpoint second half of a whole new regiment into the Army of Albion.  These are the dis-mounted versions and more to go with 54523 2nd Heavy Dragoons mounted Orcs. These Dragoons consists of one classic now re-mastered code as well as six brand new poses for a total nine different big 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 full unit (with discount) with single trooper option as well as packs with single pose purchase options within them for full customisation of your section.  There are many more images on each page; click to scroll through them.  Each Orc is about 30mm tall and are beefy fellows!


54524 2nd Heavy Dragoons Dismounted
This code contains twelve 28mm scale metal larger Orcs on foot with a total of nine different poses.  An Officer with sword and bandaged arm, a Standard Bearer  with pole and raised sword, a Musician with bugle, Trooper loading carbine, Trooper with arms out and sword raised, Trooper in greatcoat clutching a sword, Trooper carbine pointing down looking, Trooper firing carbine and lastly a Trooper or Coronet aiming pistol.  All are in dragoon uniform with bicorne. All models are single piece and this code is supplied with our resin cartouche bases.  You can also select a full twelve miniature unit with a saving which has all poses and four more randomly selected troopers added.  Miniatures are from packs 54013,54054 and 54055.  Go HERE

These Orcs are the on foot counterparts to the mounted Orcs meaning you can field this force on horse and off the horses too.  Did you see the mounted Dragoons?

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.




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 (above in pictures).  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.
