95th, Flintloques, and Muskets

Flintloque and Muskets a free supplement for 95th

It must be apparent to observant readers that my Napoleonic figures are a bit "off".

There is a very good reason for this.

Although I often use them as historical figures, my Napoleonics are actually "Napoleoniques" hailing from the fantasy world of Valon.

A world where all of the usual, as well as some rather less usual, fantasy races all seem to be trapped in episodes of "Sharpe's Rifles", with the orcs cast as British, and the elves as French.

And jolly good fun it is too!

Valon is the world of of Alternative Armies's Flintloque and Slaughterloo figure ranges, examples of which may be seen in practically all of the posts on my blog.

While I have written 95th, as well as Muskets and Shakos, as strictly historical games, I do like to use the figures for their intended purposes as well. Flintloque is a fine game, presented in a series of well written and entertaining books covering different theaters of war. I encourage those with an interest to check out the free version of the rules available here.

Getting back to the main subject of this post, in the past I had written a small supplement to allow players of THW games to use Flintloque figures with THW rules.

With the release of 95th, an updated version of that supplement Flintloques and Muskets, is now available on Craig Andrews' excellent web site, Orcs in the Webbe .

I thank Craig for hosting the supplement, as well as running a very entertaining website, and Gavin Syme of Alternative Armies for his tireless support of my madder ideas in this genre!

Hope you enjoy the game and don't forget to check out Flintloque when you have the time.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm sorry I can see nothing off with your Napoleonic figures they look perfectly normal to me.


  2. Congratulations on your new game Sir.

    1. Thank you Sir! I do hop the great gaming public enjoy it.

  3. Wait. Are you suggesting the english aren't actually orcs?

    1. Certainly not. I have been reliably informed they are Rosbifs or Poms whatever those are : )

  4. Great looking minis, love the colors...
    Phil...the elf!
