The Alternative Armies classic high fantasy range dates from the period of the early 1990's through to the end of that decade. Designed by leading names in the wargaming industry and highly successful in its day this range has been on hiatus. Alternative Armies, under the name 'Project Darkhelm' is dedicated to re-mastering, re-molding and re-releasing this entire range back onto the market. We will be doing this work at a measured pace and a weekly rate maintaining high quality and excellent pricing. During and beyond this process Project Darkhelm will see the range continue to be expanded in the mediums of white metal and high grade resin using top industry designers in new releases. Every pose in each pack is unique with no duplicates making them perfect for skirmish wargaming, roleplaying and unit building for any battle system.
“The whip and creak of leathery wings and that wicked screeching cackle assures that the Pteradon will never leave your darkest nightmares once heard. Watch to the shadows in the sky as warning is slight before the swoop and grasp of the wicked claws. Or worse the snapping of that razor beak upon your neck. Impossibly saddled upon the beast's back is a creature that even the ancient bird fears as it will not crane its neck to see its rider. A glowing magical mace in its hand and a cloak that thankfully covers a countenance which could freeze the marrow in living bones. Skeletons, Zombies and even Vampyres yes but save me from the Wraith, from the death in the skies.”
