Shia Khan Empire in Patrol Angis free PDF download


A thousand years ago the Ban of Prejudice was lifted when in the climactic battle for Aldan IV the accursed Templars detonated the Aldan Crucible and in doing so created a both a dark age and the end of the Great Khanate War. Their matter gateway in the Aldan system destroyed the Shia Khan Empire had no easy way to reach the worlds that became the Prydian Precinct as their empire lay so far away that no Dragon Ship could navigate to that region of space without immense difficulty. Gradually the Shia Khan became a memory and then a legend held by folk as a tale and nothing more. Had it not been for the occasional wreak and discovery of artefacts they would have remained that way. Had it not been for Hugo Sevaris the Khanate would have faded away. But Sevaris became the most notorious traitor in human history when he used arcane knowledge to activate the matter gateway in the Camarthen star system.

Despite a desperate action in the deep Belkus Labyrinth the Camarthen Planetary Militia with the aid of the few hundred Retained Knights of Prydia on the planet could not stem a tide of Shia Khan troops which emerged from the purple light of the matter gateway. A civilian fusion reactor taken from a nearby city was detonated and the Belkus Labyrinth destroyed burying the gateway and those coming from it under hundreds of feet of stone and earth. A message was sent to New Glastonbury at the fastest possible speed.

"A matter gateway is active on Camarthen IV. Losses are mounting, send everything; everyone. Send them now. The Khanate have returned."

It did not take long for the Legions of the Shia Khan Empire to dig their way to the surface and begin once more their determined drive to conquer mankind.

Here we are today is the day and seventeen pages of free awesome are yours for the download. Thanks to everyone who has registered their interest in this free resource PDF for Patrol Angis we have already emailed the download link to you all first thing today.  The Ion Age is delighted to present to you The Shia Khan Empire in Patrol Angis as a seventeen page PDF which contains fiction, statistics, tables, rank structure and optional test rules along with some photos of our play testing of the rules using the miniatures.  You will need the Patrol Angis book but aside from that all you need is in the PDF.

You can download the free PDF from our Dropbox account by clicking on this link HERE. Enjoy!


There will be a very large expansion to the Khanate when the time comes that their book is ready but this is in the future so for now you have all you need for infantry skirmish using the 15mm scale range as it is right now in Patrol Angis.  Your choice of different troop types be it Legionaries, power armoured Nox, huge Warlords or space goblin Maligs.  There are already more than one hundred and fifteen different Khanate miniatures in 15mm scale and you can see them HERE.

I hope you enjoy this PDF and if you have questions or feedback please do make contact with us.


Now the month will be ending soon which means you have only got a few days to place your monthly order to get everything we have released since the start of July.  I also suggest you sign up for our Mailchimp mailing list (link on right top of blog) for the monthly special email only offer. You will get the immensely popular IMP23 Vending Bot free automatically in your order plus you can also purchase more of it if you wish.  We have shipped out more of the Vending Bot than any other IMP miniature since last year!  


If you are a fan of the Prydian Army of Marcher Barons then you will be keen on our new IAFP02 Retained Lance platoon pack which contains all you need for a force in Patrol Angis and a unique extra free miniature (Retained Strategist) as well.  


In Patrol Angis we outline troop elements and the movement trays you can use with them so this month we released not only eight different sizes with IAF077 Troop Element Trays but also two different sizes of round bases used by Infantry, Battlesuits, Bikes and Portable Weapons with IAF078 20mm Round Bases and IAF079 30mm Round Bases.  We also first looked the coming Retained Female Banneret and Year Two Collection both of which are coming in August.  Finally 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 and the free monthly miniature too.  These points can be used any time to get free products and discounts on orders.

    1. Thanks Chris. We are a small company, friendly and fun. We need to make a living and we do but we are not mean or grasping. Seventeen pages is the length and the result so be it!

  2. A couple of quick questions - should the Pioneer Assault Tesseran listed in the example Legionary Ordos be a Pioneer Rifle Tesseran? Second - what is the extra cost of a Comms figure or Medic ?

    1. Hello Andrew. Thanks for your questions. In answer, yes, its a typo it should be Pioneer Rifle Tesseran. In all cases where points values are not given you should use your Patrol Angis book with costings for in Advanced Rules for things like Comms and Medic skills. The free PDF is a half way house for players at this time. Enjoy and if you have more questions just email me or post here. GBS
