Nine months in! Yes the ninth of twelve brand-new free 28mm scale mascot Alternias is here. Every package sent out from here in Scotland will have ALT009 Alternia Steampunk included for free. Place your order, as many as you wish, and she will automatically be included. Any size of order, the only exception is no digital-only orders – as long as it is shipped, it gets the free miniature. Ends 1st October 2022 for ALT009. See our mascot Alternia range on our website.

Note that our Summer Mega Event 2022 ends shortly at 9PM GMT, 5th September. 20% off all placed orders and 30 new releases. Read all about it on our blog, and you will now get Alternia Steampunk free in the package!

Alternia Steampunk

This month, our lady of Alternative Armies was inspired by a genre of miniatures we have not really touched upon, but we felt was rather fitting. Ladies can lug around giant wrenches just as well as any man can, so in an alternate history which features boilers and vessels, mechanical marvels and rivets, here she is! Supplied in one-piece metal, Alternia wears an open military-style great coat and a stovepipe hat complete with goggles. She holds an open pocket-watch and an arrow-headed staff or tool. A great miniature for collecting, painting or using in a 19th Century Imaginations game.

This ninth incarnation joins the previous, which are on the website for purchase as single miniatures. The Highlander, the Landsknecht, the Erin Lady, the Easter Girl, the Future Warrior, Knight of The Ion Age, Black Powder, and Beach Huntress. There are now a total of ten, including the very first original high-fantasy pose.

Taking an eyeglass to our ranges, we thought that the AS003 Cyborg Enslaver could easily fit into a Steampunk setting as a mechanical servant or bodyguard. From the Reluctant Brigands pack, FL26-01 makes a fine henchman or robber. Lastly, the mighty HOF142 Mecha X1 with its humanoid head (rather than the saucer-shaped one which suits Space Opera) suits a 90mm tall creation of iron and coal.

Alternative Armies News for September 2022

There is a lot happening this month, and it comes in several areas. We will have three lots of remastered and returned Asgard 28mm miniatures in the FM fantasy range, which will see us well into the FM30s. This work is continuing well, and we hope to get more re-releases each month until year's end. The HOT 15mm fantasy range will see a resumption of the Savage Lizardmen army and its growth. U.S.E.M.E. series will get another complete starter set of miniatures, booklet, scenarios and so forth with a saving too, look out for Compound Interest. Lastly, the World of Valon shall see swords (and pistols), raised in formal style as our publications arm once more commences new titles! We will send our news of each of these occurrences during the month, so keep an eye open.

As always, our greatest value codes are to be found on our Deals and Offers pages for 5% to 50% off on products, some of which change every month, plus all the big value sets for our game systems are all held there.

As always, if you have any questions or would like to make a suggestion, or ask if we can restore or release something you are looking for, then contact us on sales@alternative-armies.com and we will do our best to assist you.

Thanks for Reading!
