IAF015 Top Mounts (Sentry Turret, Comms Spire, Hurwent Generator) Released!

Can you see them yet?”

The nervous voice of the young Muster Private had repeated the question for the best part of an hour. Wearily his Sarj scanned the horizon once again and prepared to reply no to the private, but he hesitated. Upon the rise above the small cluster of Seorc Habitation Domes dark shapes had appeared. It was an atrocious night. Wet and with high winds too. Luckily the Sarj's platoon were out of the weather; holed up in the domes. While most of the domes were the typical five person sleep and live models three were not. The settlement had a comms spire for reporting to the district command and it had the small 'bubbler' type Hurwent Generator that put a hazy field over all of the domes and it had one sentry dome with a Moth 88 Rotary Cannon in a turret mount. It was this turret's visual system that the Sarj was using to scan the horizon.

Yeah. I see them. Looks like at least two platoons of Yordists.'

The small figures up on the rise had arrayed themselves with their weapons pointing toward the fizzing and hazy field extended over the cluster of domes. The Hurwent Field generated by the dome was nothing like that of even a small town. Those fields could halt any form of attack and could withstand so much that ground assault was often the only option. This Hurwent Field was much weaker and while it could and would stop incoming fire and play havoc with powered armour that got near it eventually it would burn out its micro fusion generator and collapse. The Sarj knew it and the Yordists knew it. Anvil 888 rounds boomed out from the rise and exploded against and then within the Hurwent Field. For four minutes the rounds impacted and exploded and the Muster within the domes readied themselves as best they could.

Get the ammo cans for the cannon ready. Gonna be any time now.”

His voice was steadier than he felt on the platoon channel but the Sarj needed his raw Prydian Platoon to be calm now. The Hurwent Shield was going to blaze out any moment and then only the Moth cannon would be able to slow the Yordists. Without the rain the shield would have lasted longer but those were the breaks. Back up was an hour out so it was the cannon and then the rifle once again. Hopefully the rebels would be put off closing in by five long barrels of fun.

In a sudden shock of white light the Hurwent Shield blazed out and by the time the first rain drops were hitting the rubbacrete of the domes the Moth 88 Rotary Cannon was firing long bursts of explosive shells at the rise and the Yordists were dying. The weight of their Anvil fire had dropped the shield and now the killing began.

Are we ok Sarj? The Moth 'ill stop the Yordies won't it?”

In the green glow of the turret's visual system the Sarj trained the cannon across the rise and watched the Yordists die. An Anvil round struck the outside of the dome but failed to crack it. The Sarj gritted his teeth and continued to shoot.

Be ready with that ammo kid. Can't fab any more now. Just be ready.”

It's the last week of October 2013 and you have only TODAY to get your IMP02 Retained Knight Bionic Fist free in any order before its retired permanently. What a month its been for The Ion Age. We hope that you enjoyed both the release of the Hab Dome and also these brand new top mounts for it. We meant what we said, the Hab Dome is the bottom of the mountain for our scenics range. There will be much more for it and beyond. Personally I am going to use my own IAF15C Hurwent Generator mount on its own as a part of my playtesting of Patrol Angis. Here's to the end of a big month for The Ion Age!

    1. Thanks for the kind words! They are rather nice and all three work as separate entities on their own right on the wargame table or as part of other structures too.

    1. Hello Zac,

      There will be another terrain release in a few weeks time but I will not say what it is (they will hunt me down!). There will be a tower module in the future yes. Be on the blog on Friday morning to see IMP03.
