PM Drill Sergeant free miniature for May 2015!

The IMP20 Planetary Militia Drill Sergeant is May 2015's free 15mm scale miniature for the month! This miniature is automatically put into every order at the rate of one per order regardless of order value.  It can also be bought in any amount on the monthly IMP page of the website for this month only too before being withdrawn on the first of next month.  It will be one of the twelve in the 'Year Two Collection' on our second anniversary this summer.

It is the task of the Planetary Militia's or Planetary Defence Forces of Prydian space to defend their home worlds against attack.  This attack could be from a rival Marcher Baron or Mercenaries or even Aliens.  But who readies the men and women of the defence forces for this job?  Why, its the role of the 'Primary Allied Instructor Teams' the Drill Sergeants or just the plain old 'PAIN guys'.  While some drill sergeants are locally raised it is often a soldier from the ranks of the Muster or even the Retained who is drafted in.  They are very good at their work and in many cases will fight on the front lines in times of the world's need.  This miniature is in one piece and stands 18mm tall with arms folded and a stern look on its face.  A Charlatan IV Launcher, a heavy infantry weapon, is slung over his back.  If you are interested in the rest of the Planetary Militia range of infantry, battlesuits and vehicles you can see them all HERE and HERE.

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.

As it is our second year we look back at this time last year and see what the free miniature was at that time.  In May 2015 the free miniature was IMP09 Retained Sniper Prone. It was our ninth miniature to be given out free.  You can find this miniature in the Year One Collection if you are lacking it.

April was manic for us and a very busy month.  We want to thank you for that.  It was also a sad month as Patrol Angis was delayed but do not worry we will put that right during May 2015.  I want to leave you with an image of one of the most popular models of the last four weeks the IAF072 Steornade Battlesuit with twin Moth Cannons standing next to the Drill Sergeant.  Any Marcher Baron would think twice before messing with these two! 

Thanks for reading.



  1. How did you do the banner for planetary militia command unit?

    1. Thanks for your comment. The banner on the PM Banner Bearer in the platoon pack and command pack codes is made from paper. Cut paper pre-painted by hand, then attached with super glue and hardened with more glue into place. The work was done by the sculptor of the miniatures Sam Croes. GBS
