Alternative Armies: Free Shipping, Miniature Deals and Goody Bags

Posted on March 30th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Alternative Armies: From today until the 1st of May 2015 Alternative Armies is having its spring offers period. We are not attending any conventions in person this spring but this does not mean we are not making our annual offers from now and during the whole of April to our worldwide customer base as they have come to expect from us. We will be having new releases and more during this period but the offers here apply to each and every one of them all the same. These can all be found on our Deals and Offers Page. So while you will not see us at Salute 2015 in London this April here is what we are offering you: 
Free Worldwide Shipping on all Orders over 10.00GBP Value! 
If you live in the UK or Europe, the USA or anywhere else on this blue marble we call home we are giving you free shipping worldwide on all orders over 10.00GBP in product value. This has been applied to our website so all you need to do is to add items to your cart as normal moving then through to the shipping page where the offer is located. We use airmail and courier services as required and you may still choose to add a ‘signed for element’ to your order. Orders of less than 10.00GBP will attract our normal flat 5.00GBP shipping charge worldwide. We have placed this minimum on free shipping due to a very small percentage of customers previously who thought it correct to place extremely small orders for delivery. We do have to make a living and we think that is fair. 

Free “Goody Bag” in all Orders worth 10% of your Order! 

When you place an order of any size or value with us until 1st May we will automatically place a Goody Bag into your package to the value of approx 10% of the order. The items in this free bag will be related to what you have purchased but will be our choice. So if you order Flintloque Orcs you will get other Flintloque Orcs and an order for High Fantasy Dwarves will gain you other High Fantasy Dwarves or a Monster. A lovely surprise for you and great for your collections. And yes if you do order two Slaughterloo Divisions we will, with 10% of the order value, add in an entire Slaughterloo unit for free as you earned it! 
These two offers run over the top of all our coming releases for the next month which you can all check on the Alternative Armies blog. Lots of interesting deals here so certainly worth taking a look.

Pendraken Miniatures: Enter the Realm of Fantasy with the Warband Rules

Posted on March 30th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Pendraken Miniatures: Warband provides all the rules you need to bring great battles between fantasy armies to your tabletop.
Using miniature figures and terrain, you can fight battles from the glorious sword and sorcery epics you’ve read about. You can play games against your friends or competitive battles against worthy opponents. Whilst the rules have been written with the 10mm Pendraken Miniatures ranges in mind, there’s no reason why you can’t use other scales as well!
Warband is designed to be simple to learn and difficult to master, and so it uses a single consistent task resolution method throughout the rules. Whether you’re trying to get a unit of warriors to move, seeing how effective it’s shooting or fighting is, or how well it has defended itself, you’ll be using the same dice pool mechanism. You determine the number of dice to roll and each result of 4+ is a success. The more successes you roll, the better your units will do, and the more likely you are to win. Simple!
Of course fighting a good tactical battle, getting your units into advantageous situations, and making effective command decisions will mean you’ll be far more likely to win. Coming up with effective tactics for your chosen army to defeat your opponents is what will take you time to master.
So with Warband’s intuitive rules you’ll be fighting the battle not the rulebook, and hopefully having a lot of fun into the bargain! You’ll be able to decide which of the fantastic races you’d like to command and then construct your force from the lists provided. Warband includes complete army lists for twelve armies, with abilities, options, spell lists, and descriptions including; Barbarian men, Dark elves, Dragon men, Eldritch vampires, Goblins, High elves, Hill dwarves, Lizardmen, Samurai apes, Taurians, Undead, and Wood elves.
Army composition and optional upgrades are highly flexible, allowing you to build the force that best fits your style of play. If you’d like to command a horde of bison riding barbarians, rampaging minotaurs, skirmishing ghouls, or serried ranks of deadly elven archers then you’ll find something to suit you in the Warband rules.
Grab your Warband Fantasy Rules now here!

Breaking War: Wargame Magazine Breaking War Introduction by Editor Quino Ruiz

Posted on March 26th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

Here’s a nice introduction to the Spanish wargame magazine Breaking War by the editor Quino Ruiz: BreakingWar is a three-monthly periodical wargame publication with a focus for historical wargames. At the moment this magazine is only published in Spanish. Although the magazine focuses on the Spanish wargame scene and companies it’s also interesting for non-Spanish wargamers as it reveals lots of interesting ideas, reviews, companies and tutorials.
BreakingWAR es una publicación periódica (actualmente se publica cada tres meses), centrada en los wargames de ambientación histórica. Por ahora se publica únicamente en español, y está centrada en los intereses del público de España, aunque en gran medida se corresponden con los intereses de cualquier aficionado a los wargames.

The magazine has several fixed sections including but not limited to News, Future Events and Tournaments, Event Chronicles, Painting corner with different levels,… Also each issue has a historical event as a central topic. There are reviews of rulesets and expansions, recommendations about miniatures and scenery to representate that historical event in all the possible scales but also supplementary material for the player and other relevant information about the era.
La revista tiene secciones fijas, que van desde las noticias del sector, la programación de torneos y eventos, las crónicas de los eventos sucedidos en el periodo anterior, crítica de cine bélico, entrevistas a personajes relevantes o clubes de jugadores, humor gráfico, secciones de pintura en diferentes niveles (en Taller de Pintura se pinta a un nivel medio, mientras que en la sección Flis-Flas: Pintura Express se pinta de forma rápida y sencilla), secciones de escenografía en diferentes niveles también (Cola y Arena es nuestra sección de escenografía al uso, y Dedos Pegajosos es nuestra sección de escenografía “para dummies”).

Of course, each number includes useful battle plans. There’s also content about several games, from small skirmishes to big battles and even full-scale campaign games including: World War Two, Napoleonic, Modern Warfare, Antiquity, etc. And more important: we cover well-known but also less known wargames, to allow you to discover new games!
Además, cada número se centra en un hecho histórico, y hay análisis de reglamentos y suplementos, recomendaciones sobre miniaturas para representar ese periodo en todas las escalas de juego, escenarios de juego, material complementario para el jugador y mucha información sobre el periodo histórico en el que sucedió ese hecho. 

Finally we also offer our subscribers lots of nice gifts including from exclusive rulesets, commercial and exclusive miniatures, interesting scenery elements and a lot of more. We are also looking to publish Breaking War in English with the better articles and translated content from our Spanish magazine!

Y por supuesto, lo que más valoran nuestros lectores, en todos los números hay Planes de Batalla, que son escenarios de juego, desde pequeñas escaramuzas a grandes batallas e incluso campañas de juego, para todas las épocas: Segunda Guerra Mundial, Napoleónicos, Guerra Actual, Antigüedad, etc. Y lo más importante, utilizando tanto los juegos más conocidos, como aquellos que nos parecen interesantes aunque no sean mayoritarios, lo que permite al jugador conocer otros productos, y tal vez descubrir nuevas pasiones.

Para finalizar, complementamos nuestra oferta ofreciendo a los suscriptores muchos regalos: desde reglamentos de juegos exclusivos nuestros, hasta miniaturas comerciales y exclusivas, elementos de escenografía, complementos o ayudas para juegos, y mucho más. 

Esperamos muy pronto poder ofrecer a todos los wargamers, en inglés, el resumen de los mejores artículos y contenidos de nuestra revista, a través de especiales que publicaremos bajo la marca PaintingWAR Battles, aunque por ahora, sea sólo un proyecto.
