IAF052 Nox Demos with Jupiter Plasma Rifles released!

The Shia Khan Empire favours energy based weapons over those using projectiles as ammunition for the majority of its Legions.  While other instructional vids will be dealing with the Maia and Juno classes of weapons our subject here is the designated Jupiter series of plasmatic weapons primarily the Jupiter 46mm Plasma Rifle.  The Jupiter Plasma Rifle is a heavy infantry weapon in the weight brand of some sixteen kilogrammes for the gun itself and another twenty kilogrammes for the linked power supply.  It has been observed in use by two alien soldiers with one manning the weapon and the other handling the power supply and ensuring function.  As such it is not the most mobile of infantry carried weapons.  However using dedicated power supplies within their Segmentum pattern armour along with enhanced strength Nox troopers can make use of the Jupiter on their own both wielding and charging it themselves.  Khanate plasmastic weapons use a similar technology to our own which we estimate is some century and a half more advanced with a superior discharge and kill potential in infantry sized deployments.  A chamber within the Jupiter Rifle with a spherical size of 46mm across is superheated and injected with a tiny amount of material which is then accelerated from the barrel using an array of linear magnets.  The resultant projected blast of plasma can be accurately aimed at moderate to long ranges superior to our Hermit class.  We have only estimates of usage duration that a typical power supply linked will allow for twenty shots before significant charging is required or supply switched.  Battlefield reports and vid feed show Jupiter shots penetrating Alwite Powered Armour with relative ease and survival rates from injury by Jupiter Plasma Rifles are very low.  Commanders in the field recommend the destruction of captured Khanate weapons and power packs as instances of booby trapping and remote overcharge and detonation are common.

IAF051 Nox Demos (Janus Blastguns)
Wearing powered and very tough Segmentum armour the Nox are the elite infantry of a Shia Khan Legion.  Given the toughest tasks and carrying weapons that are usually the duty of two Legionaries between them Nox are more than a match for Retained Knights and often pose a challenge to the mighty Desteria Knights too. This pack contains five white metal miniatures depicting Nox armed with Janus 47mm Grenade Blast Guns in various poses including a minor officer in command helmet.  Nox miniatures are about 18mm tall and broad across the shoulders.

Information Burst

We are a week into July and the reception to this month's free miniature IMP11 Female Adventurer has been great with emails coming to me that praise both the vital skill of Sam Croes design work but also her classic space opera posing and useful nature as a figure.  It does make me wonder what game systems she will end up in much like the Zin Envoy of a few months back.  I would like to thank all those who have taken us up on the latest ESO and there is a mighty stack of Adder Lifters on our shelves here ready for the 17th to arrive.  While the Nox grow as a force in the Ion Age with this new release I can now confirm that there will be another release in our terrain range in two weeks time in the form of a damaged Hab Dome.  We had so many requests for this after releasing the Cratered Hab Dome that we have put a lot of effort into getting it ready a blog post on it soon.  There is an article on posts made on the Lasers and Broadswords blog here showing one keen IonFan's collection of miniatures and terrain.  Lastly remember that by placing an order with us you will sign up for an account with the website and that means you get Reward Points in all purchases (plus a free miniature).  These points can be used any time to get free products and discounts on orders.

Thanks for Reading.
