I'm very happy to announce a partnership with Cigar Box Battle Inc. makers of the wonderful "Battle Mats."
If you're not familiar with these guys, they produce (among other things) lovely detailed terrain cloths in various sizes and a number of different themes, from modern to rustic, to Sci-Fi. These mats come with a variety of terrain already printed, and several mats are geomorphic so that they match the edges of other mats.
This is a wonderful partnership for anyone who wants to play Blücher with the unit cards. You can set up a big battle in ten minutes, and carry everything you need to a game in your briefcase!
I've included some photos of the unit cards in action on one of the "European" Battle Mats. For more information about Battle Mats, go HERE

No sooner than we've unpacked from the Crisis show then we're getting ready to put all the stock back in the van for our annual jaunt down to Reading for Warfare. Such are the demands of the UK wargames Autumn show circuit. We'll have all the usual goodies with us including the very popular Great War ranges and Great War Spearhead II rules onna stick. I'm also working very hard to get a few more of our Napoleonic French codes ahead of general release.
The next group of releases will follow the trend set recently and concentrate on the French Guard - in this case the cavalry. IF, and I do mean
all goes to plan, then you'll be able to bolster your Grand Armee with the new Grenadiers a Cheval, Guard Lancers and the ever so splendid Carabiniers
And for those of you interested, we are on the very final stage of this project but we are saving a couple of very nice packs till the very end, so stay tuned.
On other fronts, we are working on releasing a lot of Great War codes across all arms and including supporting weapons before the end of the year. These will take the armies on the Western Front forward to mid-war, but more of that anon.
You have got until Wednesday 12th November to get any collect orders to us for Warfare, so please get in touch with us as soon as you can.
It is the beginning of more releases for the awesome 28mm scale fantasy black powder range for Flintloque and Slaughterloo. Alternative Armies presents to you two brand new packs and a unit code for the Ferach Empire. The Lergo Jagers!
