Alternative Armies releases new figures in their fantasy wargaming range.

Alternative Armies is best known for their Flintloque range of fantasy wargaming minatures and rules, and the boys in Scotland have just released their latest.

Here's the run-down on some of their newbies:

4 Beervarian Troopers
The nation of Beervaria is home to many Dwarves and Ogres that often fight side by side. Equipped with Mk II Dwarf muskets and in the infamous Krappenhelm, these are stout foes indeed.

L'Esprit Du Garde
A blister of two L'Esprit Du Garde mounted troopers in the 'attaque' pose. With a seperate sword arm these troopers can be posed striking down on exposed infantry or with the sword forward in attack pose. In full cuirass and with a heavy straight sword these cavalry Elves are death for the enemies of Mordred.

A Chance of Ruination
It had been a long two weeks in the far south of Aegypt. Two weeks of feints and lures that had been ignored by these Elves who were so far from their depots in Kairoh. Khamsin and his warriors had separated from Usak Manzarra in hopes of tracking down Demedotte after the Ferach Major had eluded them in the dunes of Hudaff ....

An A5 Flintloque Scenario Box set in the Desert.
Contains; 35 Infantry - 2 Camels and riders - all necessary bases. Background and rules supplied.

There's also some Maelstrome stuff (their 'straight' fantasy material), as well as Goblin archers and Toadec spawn in their 15mm wargame range.
