56599 Von Mohnblume Artillery Crew released for Flintloque

Not far from the great city of Prest near the Bonhundian border with the Ostarian Empire is the small Dutchy of Von Mohlblume. A collection of towns and villages ruled by the young Duke Kurz Nase Von Mohlblume a cousin of the Emperor Klaffenhund. The dutchy is in a rare position in that it exists within the Empire but has some autonomy as long as it contributes troops to the war against the Ferach Empire. This protected position, far from any enemies, has bred a race of Dogmen with no natural foes.

Standing chest high to an Ostarian the Mohlblume are the smallest of the Dogmen to be found in Urop. They make up for this with a pugnacious attitude and stocky strength. Though in long marches they can often be heard wheezing as they try to keep up with the other battalions. They are uniformed and armed by their own depots as they find typical Ostarian equipment too large. The Duke has led his regiments against Mordred’s marshals in several campaigns and also against the Confederation of Finklestein in the vicious Haarausfall War. Which, though only weeks in duration, saw great losses against the Legions de Nain. Confederation forces were defeated in the Battle of Kleine Beine but in the effort there was much slobbering and passing of gas in the Pug ranks.

Brand new miniatures for Flintloque and Slaughterloo with the release of the Pug Dogmen gun team and horses adding to the forces of Ostaria and the Confederation of Finklestein.  Above you see the new Von Mohnblume Artillery Crew using the 59527 Ferach Grand Howitzer as well as supported by troops of the Von Mohnblume Line.  Who are they firing upon?  That is up to you but perhaps it is the Dwarves of Krautia.

Our mega event March to War 2021 is on at Alternative Armies.  Until 3rd May automatically 20% off all orders at checkout, 24 new releases, free and cheaper shipping rates and more.  Read about this in full on our BLOG or visit NEW RELEASES.
