Its our second year by gad! That means that its time for the first free monthly miniature of the second year so lets have something a little bit to the side of the Prydian Army to get us into the swing of it. The Alouten. What is that and what will it be? Well the Alouten are mentioned in passing in the fiction of The Ion Age and are a plan for much further in the future. They are the beginning stage for all Retained Knights. Alouten are in training from young boys and girls into teenagers and then for their testing and acceptance into the lowest ranks of the Retained as an Esquire. But who does the training, it must be over seen by experienced knights for it to be effective. So an Alouten Veteran is a knight of a great amount of combat experience who has chosen to bring on the next generation rather than choose the path of a Knight Errant for instance. He would therefore be of an age that gives greying hair and perhaps more defined features too so lets have his helmet off to be able to see them. I think that wargamers who enjoy the Retained will enjoy this free miniature.
The IMP13 Alouten Veteran September 2014's free miniature which is automatically put into every order at the rate of one per order of any value. It can also be bought in any amount too on the monthly IMP page of the website. Wearing MkV Alwite armour and carrying a Carnwennan Pistol the veteran is minus his helmet and stands some 16mm tall in one piece. A real character. This miniature is a fine addition to any 15mm science fiction collection for any game system.
Of course you earn reward points on all orders too through your account. We realise that some of you may wish to purchase the currently free miniature to get multiples of it without placing a lot of orders so you can do just that. Visit this page on the website for the miniature at a fair price for a special miniature. There is a growing page on the Ion Age website where the current and all former IMP series free miniatures are shown so that you can see what came before. Enjoy and go HERE.

From this month onwards when we unveil the new free miniature for the month we will also be looking back at what the monthly free miniature was a year ago at this time. In September 2013 the free miniature was IMP01 Kneeling Retained Knight in cloak. It was our very first miniature to be given out free and to this day its still the rarest of all the IMP series. You can find this miniature in the Year One Collection if you are lacking it.
I do wonder what the Year Two Collection will look like....Its going to be awesome to find out across the next twelve months!
Thanks for reading.
