Alternative Armies has a new release out with the Rache Carabiniers Dogmen soldiers. These play on armies from the Napoleonic era set in a fantasy world that gives a new meaning to the term, “the world is going to the dogs!”
These are some very interesting miniatures and this game Flintloque has always interested me and has been on my watch list. These miniatures are described as such:
“This formation of Dogmen fight with the Burrovians in Kartoffelburg and its their aim to kill every Ostarian they can find along with any who are their allies. Experts in skirmishing the Rache can match anything the Grand Alliance can throw at them. The structure this Light Troop battalion is as follows.
One battalions composes the Regiment. One thousand Dogmen at full muster and ten companies. Each company has one hundred Dogs which are separated into two Platoons and a headquarters element totaling about fifty soldiers and officers.
A Section normally has ten to fifteen Dogs including an Officer, a lesser Officer, a Sergeant, a musician and standard bearer, the rest being Privates. They are armed with a Ferach Carbine and a Bayonet, Officers have a Sword. The uniform consists of a dark green tunic, grey breeches, a black shako with silver and an orange plume, black shoes.
Facing colours (cuffs, collars, etc.) are dark orange. Equipment is black with equipment straps being of white leather.”
I would love to hear other’s opinions on these miniatures as well as the game itself. I would like to know if this is something I should invest in.
What do you think of these characters?
