DH14 Dwarf Blunderbusses at Alternative Armies

“Those Dwarfs who choose to take up the exotic weapons of the runesmiths known as 'Blunderbusses' are viewed with some suspicion by other Dwarf warriors. While they are not avoided like the beserkers are or stood back from like the pig riders they are given a healthy distance due to their choice of armament. Few know the secrets of the magic infused powder that is the fuel of the Blunderbuss and while they see an echo of the mighty bombard in the little balls that are rammed into the mouth of the weapon it is sorcery and the axe is to be preferred. In battle these Dwarfs form a great line and wait for the enemy to draw near and this can give even a Giant Troll cause for concern. Standing still with their 'sticks' these Dwarfs seem frozen in fear. But they are not. As one they touch fire to their pans and with booming retorts the blunderbuss’s fire. As if a nest of iron hornets is raised in anger the foe is decimated by these exotic weapons.” 


This code contains six different 25mm/28mm white metal miniatures approx 24mm average height. Great quality, great choice and great value too. Go HERE

Poses in this code are as follows: 

DH14-01: Dwarf loading Blunderbuss in cloak and helmet.

DH13 Dwarf Beserkers at Alternative Armies

“Some Dwarfs are different, some are odd balls and some are just plain crazy and while those who use Blunderbusses fall into the realm of strange the Beserkers are most definitely in the realm of madness. Some come from birth marked for the war paint and great swords and axes of the beserker while others are grief stricken by loss or battle before knotting their beards down to their knees. A race apart the beserkers are not part of the Dwarven Host in war and instead act on their own ranged ahead or behind the host dealing out spittle flecked doom. Respected even by the mightiest of the Black Orcs and the savage Orcs of the plains beserkers give and ask for no quarter; preferring instead to match blows with much bigger foes. In fact when not fighting these Dwarfs can be found mindlessly drunk on ale or showing off their bare arses to maidens!” 


This code contains six different 25mm/28mm white metal miniatures approx 24mm average height. Great quality, great choice and great value too. Go HERE

Poses in this code are as follows: 

DH13-01: Dwarf beserker with Axe and Club.

DH12 Dwarf Knight on Pig at Alternative Armies

“The Derschwine Knights are the pride of the Dwarfs who rule the plains at the foot of the mountains. Clad in the thickest armour and riding an animal known for its vicious temper and fantastic taste they are almost unique among the Dwarfs. Dwarfs are not known for cavalry and this has taken Orcish raiders by horrid surprise more than once. Thinking themselves safe in fleeing the short and stocky warriors that pursued them the Orcs slowed and even turned to mock. This cost them their lives as the knights rode them down in a torrent of pink flesh and stomping trotters. Rumours persist of the Derschwine pigs eating the dead of the battlefield. Dwarfs do not deny this after all the pigs that die in combat are used in the same fashion. Riding a pig has some advantages!” 


This code contains three identical 25mm/28mm white metal and resin cavalry miniatures (Rider is white metal, Mount is resin). Great quality, great choice and great value too. Go HERE

Poses in this code are as follows:

DH11 Dwarf Command at Alternative Armies

“If the host of battle is the body then the Dwarfs who command troops are the brains. To them the glory and to them the decisions of life and death. With the warlord giving of his experience and the officers taking the word to the ranks actions are put in motion. With the banners raised high the eyes of the Dwarfs are steeled with courage and the sound of the horns in their ears they are stirred to succeed. The body flexes its muscles and with armoured Dwarfs as its fists it smashes the enemy. But without the brain without command, all of the strength of the body, of the host, is for naught.” 


This code contains five different 25mm/28mm white metal miniatures approx 24mm average height. Great quality, great choice and great value too. Go HERE

Poses in this code are as follows:

DH8 Dwarf Shield Wall at Alternative Armies

“We are strongest at our core and that core is the shield wall. Shoulder to shoulder and shields facing the enemy the shield wall is the centre of any Dwarf army. Standing like rocks in the howling wind of battle, the shield wall takes the charge of wolf riders, the arrows of archers and the flung spears of Orcs all in its stride. With shafts brushed from their shields the line moves forward and then grounds itself once more to endure another assault. We are strongest at our core, in our heart, the shield wall. Watch the sun cross the sky and watch the shield wall go ever forward. As the sun goes down the field belongs to us. Our hearts beat in rhythm with the impact of sword and club upon our wooden rampart. We are the core; the Shield Wall.”

DH7 Dwarf Cavern Fighters at Alternative Armies

“Running in the darkness. Fighting in the tunnels. Water dripping and mixing with the blood of the cavern floor. Not all the battles of the Dwarfs are fought under the sun and the moons. Some are fought deep down in the labyrinth under the mountains where the wealth of ages is kept at all costs. Goblins and Orcs desire the wealth and open tunnels into the caverns before rushing in and slaughtering all they find. If this occurs or the desire to reclaim places underground lost to the Dwarfs comes to the fore then it is the task of the Cavern Fighters to make the will of the lords come to fruition. Verminous Coblynau destroy all the torches and oil pits so Cavern Fighters take their own candles and torches into the darkness. With axes and spiked gauntlets they endure the tight spaces and root out the goblinoids before sealing the intruding passages. Only the bravest step forward to join the ranks of the Cavern Fighters.”

DH6 Dwarf Missile Troops at Alternative Armies

“The Orcish savages think of us only with axe and blade while they have the bow to strike at us from afar. True we Dwarfs like to come close and bloody our mail with the spilt vitality of our foes but we are not without our own long reach. There are those among the Dwarfs who give up the their axes and instead take up the crossbow and the fire globes. They take pride in laying low those who laugh at our slower advance on the grass of the top soil world. Stronger than Men our Dwarfs load their bolts quickly and shoot with deadly accuracy and without the need to draw a bow. Golden chains held in hand allow the spinning of a globe filled with burning oil that when hurled can bring down an Ogre with clawing, sticking fire. By my beard none can stand against us!”

DH4 High Dwarfs at Alternative Armies

“Those who are born on high are fit to lead and those who are born on low are fit to be led. That is the way it is for all Dwarfs from the early times of Gurgenhammer until the now times. Under the mountains and under the sky we serve those who are our lords. Clad in armour forged by the master smithers our lords are our betters. Their blades sharper and their senses keener. When the hosts are assembled and the banners raised our high born are to the fore with their beards flowing in the wind and crested helms under their arms. It is with a word that they send us forward to meet the Orcish savages. It is with a word that they send us to battle. It is with a word that they say the prayers for the fallen afterwards.

54050 Valon Civilians by Christian Cello released!


Flintloque players went slightly bonkers over Mr Cuello's last miniature 56131 Ludwig Von Barkhoven in 2014 with hundreds of castings of it winging around the world when it released and way more when it went out free as an offer too.  After that success five more civilians for use with Flintloque were created and now they are on general release.  Five diverse characters with a lot of potential uses which could be fitting in to any number of collections and scenarios.  I can see them being many things and I think this was Mr Cuello's idea as well.  There are some civilians in our range but certainly there is room for many more too. Go HERE.

From the left, in the line across images, these 28mm white metal miniatures are:

Hanz Stammerhunde
A Dogman in civilian costume with Tricorne Hat and Blunderbuss which stands 30mm tall.  A brave fellow Hanz Stammerhunde used to be a country gentledog until the war with Pudigrochumberg rolled across his small estate and ruined it.  Now Hanz has no choice but to be a highway robber and rascal and while he attempts to be harm innocents he is no stanger to danger. At home in Ostaria or the Confederation of Finklestein.

Bernurd Mucksorc
An Orc in civilian costume with buttoned up coat and Tricorne Hat which stands 30mm tall.  A shady chap Bernurd Muscksorc is a wanted Orc.  He used to work in the stamping works of the Banke of Albion until the lure of coin took his mind.  Making off with two sacks of groats he is now in hiding from the Bone Streete Rumblers.  His presentable appearance is his best asset but how long will he avoid the noose? Many uses both urban and rural but in Londinium or Wheeling-Turns Camp in Catalucia you could use him. 

Alf Graxley
An Orc in civilian costume with the look of a miner or other manual worker which stands 28mm tall. Alf Graxley wears a flat cap and has a knife in hand and he is an honest Orc.  He used to be a thug and leg breaker in Skarkills Trade Onion but now he has gone back to work in the barrel cellar of the Pixie's Rear a pub in Cheapestsides in Londinium.  His accent often gets him into scrapes as he is from Yorcshire but he holds his own.  Many uses in scenarios.

Otto Von Slacken
A Dwarf in civilian costume which stands 22mm tall.  Otto Von Slacken is a lumber jack (Wood Cutter) who carries an Axe and is wearing a fur trimmed cloak and sock cap.  In the rough and tumble of Kartoffelburg the daily trades continue despite the carnage and war in the region and this Dwarf fells trees and then sells fire wood as he travels around.  He has great knowledge of the region and is willing to act as a guide for those soldiers who lose their way..for a price.

Nico Ebayrisold
A Gnome in well fitted civilian costume wearing spectacles with his hand behind his back he stands 18mm tall.  Nico Ebayrisold is from the Swizzic Republique like the rest of his kind his passion is counting and banking.  With a mind that is as fast as Mr Babborcs Differecing Engine he is currently in Catalucia assisting Wheeling-Turn in the accounts for the Army of Albion.  He would make an excellent scenario objective or assistant to any Army or perhaps a wealthy merchant with a personal bodyguard. Our first Gnome of Zoorik in the miniature range.

54050 Valon Civilians
This pack contains five different 28mm white metal miniatures for use in Flintloque or any other fantasy system.  A Dogman armed with Blunderbuss, an Orc in Tricorne, an Orc with knife, a Dwarf carrying an Axe and a Gnome wearing spectacles.  Five civilians with many different scenario uses.  This code can be purchased as a pack or as single miniatures from the pack in a choice in the on page drop down menu.  You can also purchase the pack and singles pro-painted and based by selecting those options in the drop down menu.   Go HERE.



If you have not seen Barkhoven then you can go to our website HERE.  There is a free download character sheet for him too which is on these links.  Its a rock and roll period for fans of Alternative Armies and especially Flintloque and Slaughterloo with many new releases as well as offers and much excellence being put up on our Notables Yahoo Group.  Its well worth joining this Yahoo Group and while you must apply to join this is just a formality and I will sign you in where you can pull up a virtual armchair and talk about our games and miniatures.  Here is the link:  Notables Group.

Lastly remember that our Spring Season Offers are active and that means FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE on all orders over 10.00GBP and a Goody Bag free worth 10% of your order included automatically.  You need do nothing more than put items in your cart and the website plus our staff will do the rest.  Go HERE for full information.

KC1 Coblynau Lesser Goblins Released!

“Lice? Ticks? Vermin? All these words can be used for the Coblynau for that is what they are. The least of the Goblinoid races and the most numerous too. Aye, each on its own is nothing to be feared for a Dwarf in mail, but together...together they are more. Together they can bring a warrior to his knees and then with little blades and sharp teeth end his life. In greater numbers, as a seething mass they can overtake an Ogre and strip it to merest bone and rags. But when they travel in hordes they are as a plague, as a river, that will subsume entire towns if not defeated or driven away with fire or magic. Those learned Men far off call them Lesser Goblins. Our own call them Coblynau. I? Well I call them what they are... bloody dangerous!” 


Back by popular demand the first code in the 1990's classic 'Kev's Creatures' range at Alternative Armies. Lovely little Goblin terrors! 

This code contains eleven different 25mm/28mm white metal miniatures approx 13mm-16mm average height. Great quality, great choice and great value too. Go HERE

Poses in this code are as follows: 

KC1-Spears: Five Different Lesser Goblins with Spears. 
KC1-Swords: Six Different Lesser Goblins with Swords. 

These miniatures are not supplied with bases and are supplied unpainted. Select your choice from the drop down product menu. Choose from a pack, three packs with a 10% saving applied and two different sub-packs of miniatures. Total choice! Assembly is required with some white metal miniatures. 


The Alternative Armies classic high fantasy range dates from the period of the early 1990's through to the end of that decade. Designed by leading names in the wargaming industry and highly successful in its day this range has been on hiatus. Alternative Armies, under the name 'Project Darkhelm' is dedicated to re-mastering, re-molding and re-releasing this entire range back onto the market. We will be doing this work at a measured pace maintaining high quality and excellent pricing. During and beyond this process Project Darkhelm will see the range continue to be expanded in the mediums of white metal and high grade resin using top industry designers in new releases. Every pose in each pack is unique with no duplicates making them perfect for skirmish wargaming, roleplaying and unit building for any battle system. 

Thanks for Reading.
