Repair and Operate: This skill is given free to all suitable Drones and to Vehicle Crew, Mechanics and Techs in your force. Field repairs and if required subsequent operation during a battle is no easy task and only the brave of the machine attempts it. If your Troop Element possessing the skill is within 1cm of a Vehicle (any kind of Vehicle including Infantry Sized Vehicles) they may attempt to repair it. This cannot take the unit beyond its original maximum DMR rating. This cannot be carried out upon destroyed or killed units but it can be upon damaged and disabled units. This requires one action to be used per attempt with no maximum attempts per turn. Only one Troop Element may attempt repairs per turn. Roll 1D8 and on a 6+ add 1 DMR to the chosen vehicle for Repair Drones and 7+ for Humans for the same result. Any Human Crew or Pilots who are Vehicle crew may use this skill to automatically be able to capture, start and operate another Vehicle or Portable Weapon at a cost of one action. Included in the cost of allowable Drones and Humans including Battlesuit pilots.
Taken from Callsign Taranis a forthcoming publication from The Ion Age in the Advanced Rules special skills section. An Expansion to Patrol Angis
Welcome to April at The Ion Age. This month sees our 'Salute Season' which begins on 4th April with two weeks (until 18th April) of free worldwide postage on all orders over 10.00GBP (you still get the free miniature and Reward Points in every order as normal) plus new releases into the Shia Khan Empire 15mm range. These releases will be made on the 5th April meaning you can get right in and serve the Khanate straight away.
There is now also a promotion on all Adder Combat Lifter vehicles which lasts all month at twenty five percent off normal price. We will talk about all of this soon but at this moment we are all about IMP32 Hand of the Duxis our free female battlesuit tech in every order during April. You can use this miniature with the above rules snippet taken from the forthcoming expansion to Patrol Angis titled Callsign Taranis which deals with vehicles and much more in the game.
IMP32 Hand of the Duxis
For the whole of April 2016 this 15mm scale Human female battlesuit tech 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 It can also be bought in any amount on the monthly IMP page of the website for this month only too before being withdrawn on the first of next month. Dressed in specially modified Alwite powered armour fitted with specialised tools and resting her arm on the massive severed hand of a Duxis Battlesuit she is a character miniature for any sci-fi setting.The miniature is one piece in white metal and stands approx 16mm tall.
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.
The Duxis Battlesuit is the graceful but lethal large infantry of the Retained serving in the Prydian Army and in the ranks of the Marcher Barons too. The model comes in posable parts which assembled stands about 30mm tall. There are eight different variants. Five with ranged weapons HERE and three close combat variants HERE with Sword, Spear or Fists. We also have a Fallen Duxis HERE a resin scenic item, casualty or scenario objective for your games.
In our first article of a month we look back at what was going on at this point last year and in our first year too. Each of these previous months in years had its own monthly free miniature plus releases and events which you might have missed. In April 2015 we had IMP20 Female Legion Officer and in April 2014 it was IMP08 Muster Girl. Roll over the links to visit that month on our blog. You can find these formally free miniatures in the Year One and Year Two Collections on their page of our website HERE. Time flies and its good to look over your shoulder and see what was going on!
Thanks for reading.
