A wee idea that we had at Alternative Armies back in the summer of this year has now reached its fruition with the release of ‘Project 18th Garvey’ as it was called internally. For use with Flintloque and Slaughterloo the Al-Garvey 18th Regiment of Foot Goblins plus a pack of that regiment’s casualties as well. These add to the infantry, cavalry, artillery and command this nation allied to Greate Britorcn already has to offer.
Go HERE for them or read on for details of the new miniatures as well as this project plus a free download with game rules and a note on a scenario featuring these Goblins. Our Winter Mega Offer 2019 is on until 11th December with free shipping, 10% off in cart plus many deals see our BLOG for details.
53513 18th A-Garvey Foot
The 18th Regiment of Foot is composed of three solid line battalions which have served alongside the Army of Greate Britorcn against the Ferach Empire since Wheeling-Turn began his advance through Al-Garvey and into Catalucia. They are armed with Muskets and are classed as Infantry. Each Goblin is a one piece miniature and stands 23mm to the eyeline. The poses are an officer bare headed with pistol and sword, a standard bearer with ball topped pole and slung musket, musician with drum and sergeant with halberd. Trooper poses are four different Goblins with muskets; loading (with awesome moustache), advancing, cradling and firing. As with other Valon codes you can choose from a skirmish pack with ten miniatures (all eight plus two random further troopers), a unit of twenty miniatures (the skirmish pack with ten further mixed troopers) and a booster with a single trooper. All options can also be taken as pro-painted and based for immediate play by selecting on the page. Miniatures are supplied with our resin cartouche style square bases. Go HERE.

Project 18th Garvey
As alluded to at the beginning these new miniatures are a result of a small project which Alternative Armies undertook to push an often overlooked existing pack of miniatures in the World of Valon range. Back in the 1990’s pack 53002 was released containing four poses of Goblin with musket (the four troopers now in 53514) and this was never expanded upon. For more than a decade this pack was relegated to the memory store and not listed on our website. It needed..nay it demanded to be taken seriously as a full force and that mean it needed a command set and even some dead troopers. Sam Croes our lead designer used 53002 as a basis to sculpt six new poses which you can see now released. There are many codes in the range which could benefit from re-mastering and expanding. We may well do it again and indeed if there is a pack from the World of Valon which you would like to see expanded please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about it; we welcome your input.
Flintloque Scenario: A Longer Rod than Yours
War rages in Catalucia and ahead of the manoeuvring armies are the screens of the light infantry. A company of the 18th Al-Garvey Foot are getting ready to make camp after a hard march having found the abandoned possessions of a previous fleeing populace when they are set upon by the 1o Condottierie. While the Goblins outnumber the elite Wild Elves they are out gunned. Can they hold the barricades for ten turns without losing too many troops? Find out in this Flintloque scenario for two players or one solo player. Find it on our BLOG from 3rd December 2019 for free download.
