Albion Orc Sailors released for Flintloque

The last release for Flintloque and Slaughterloo this month is now online at Alternative Armies.  Following up on the Abandoned Good Wagon we have a pack of four new poses of 28mm scale white metal Orcs in the service of the Royul Navye.  These can be added to your grand alliance forces and used at sea or in landing party scenarios.  Go HERE for the pack or read on for more information and images.  Sculpted by Elton Waters.

“The Royul Navye is the largest sea going fleet in the World of Valon.  Exploring and fighting all over the globe its hundreds of ships both large and small have crews that number in the hundreds of thousands.  From bustling ports such as Plymuff and Porcsmuff the ships of Kyng Gorge keep the armies of Mordred contained to mainland Urop and exchange broadsides with any who challenge Greate Britorcn.  Some vessels have one gun deck while most have two and some three with only the most massive having over one hundred cannon.  Each ship carries officers, gun crews, passengers, marines and of course sailors.  While not trained as soldiers the sailors are handy with a musket and able to give a good account of themselves both at sea and on land.  Currently, after the disaster of Kooruna, the Navye is conducting hit and run landings up and down the coasts of Nepolise.  This is forcing the Todoroni governors and Ferach Empire regiments to be pulled away from the war in Catalucia proper.  Some of these landings have involved hundreds of soldiers supported by as many armed sailors and have captured and carried away a vast amount of loot and supplies as well as notable prisoners such as that along the coast from Pondlerno.”

54051 Albion Orc Sailors
This pack contains four different poses of 28mm scale white metal miniatures.  Sailors of the Royul Navye these Orcs are bare footed and wearing straw hats along with short trousers and shirt.  Armed with bessie muskets as well as a Cutlass (sword), hand axe and long barrelled horse pistol they are excellent for inclusion in your Grand Alliance forces alongside Orcs, Ratmen and others.  They fit in excellently with the TRA naval packs.  This code is supplied unpainted and unassembled but with our cartouche style bases included.  You can purchase a pack or you can choose a pro-painted and based pack as well ready for immediate use in your gaming table.  Go HERE.  8.00GBP per pack.
