|Ylona of Prydia|
See the lovely lady above. Well she caused some amount of stir among fans of the Ion Age. So much stir in fact that we all got together here a couple of weeks ago and decided that we were going to get into the Art world. Now I do not mean galleries and the Tate Modern instead I mean to carry on the grand old tradition of science fiction Poster Prints!
Ylona of Prydia will be our first subject. Digitally drawn and coloured by Sam Croes she will be released as an A3 high grade Poster Print. Below you can see the actual work held by my good lady wife. Printed in deep rich inks on proper 200gsm poster paper with a white margin they are made locally in Scotland and are ideal for pinning to your wall or even framing. I intend to frame my own.
If this experiment works out, and I hope it does as it seems to me the artwork once held so dear in the 1980's and 1990's in wargaming books is slipping by the way now, we will consider a regular series of poster prints. Bringing the Ion Age closer to us all with awesome big pictures for our walls. Each poster print will be priced at a very reasonable 5.00GBP and packaged in purpose made poster tubes for mailing. We would like IonFans to benefit from the posters in relation to playing our games and as such we will not put a premium art price on them.
|IAF017 Retained Post Delta - 10 Female Knights|
So Poster Prints and Female 15mm Retained this week. Both big releases. I think I will put them both together here on the blog and the website but I will send them to forums and news websites as two separate items. Not for more impact, not for a 'look we sneezed and it's news' approach but more to see if the art rather than the metal gets more attention.
