The bumper Prang Army month is now over and The Ion Age gives a big shout out to all those who took up on the big and bulky aliens all across the world. If you missed them then see them here (we have placed the Prang Ambassador on the page as a purchasable miniature outside of the Year Four Collection). October is here and we have some fun in 15mm space opera for you! Lots to know and here we go!
“What else goes on outside of the Prydian Civil War and the warring armies? Well while its not the focus of The Ion Age to look beyond the military we do have a place for speculation and that is in the monthly free miniature. Someone who takes no nonsense and can manage to make a living out of a fast draw and seeing the angle that makes the difference. A Male Adventurer in the grand tradition of space opera. So here he is! A unique looking miniature in 15mm scale that can be put in almost any scenario. He has no name...no need for one. I am sure all of you will give him an identity that suits just fine."
Back in 2014 (go HERE to read about it or HERE to purchase it) we released a Female Adventurer as the free monthly miniature and now we welcome the thirty eighth miniature in the series with IMP38 Male Adventurer. A 15mm human character which is free in every order every time all month before being retired. 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 It can also be bought in any amount on the monthly IMP page of the website for this month only too before being withdrawn on the first of next month. We are into Year Four now and if you missed it you can see the Year Three Collection on the website.
IMP38 Male Adventurer is a very versatile character who fits into any setting as a bounty hunter, a mercenary, a guard or anything else you would like. Standing 16mm tall and wearing rigid body armour while holding a large calibre semi-automatic Tumbler machine pistol and a sword he is a capable fellow. 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 looking at what came before. Above you can see the Adventurer standing next to a vehicle which suits him very well the IAF054 Hazelwurm Patrol Car.
We ask you to sign up for a website account with us on your first order. Why? For one reason only. Not to send you emails (we never will. If you want our emails sign up for our Mailchimp list on the right top of the blog) or to pester you; but only to keep track of the Reward Points that all orders with us earn. Reward Points through our online partner Sloyalty which can be used once accumulated to get discounts or free stuff at any point in the future. Learn more about this HERE. Every order earns Reward Points! Yes free extra value. Part of our promise to keep the fun in wargaming.
This is our first bulletin of the new month and as such I want to fact you all up on what to expect in October 2016. We will be releasing shortly a whole Shia Khan Empire platoon pack, our third following on to the Maligs and the Legionaries, code IAFP08 Nox Ordos! There will be full details upon release but I want to tell you now that the platoon pack will contain sixteen miniatures one of which is a unique extra free one; an officer. Now I know many of you already own our 15mm Nox and because of that there is an offer this month where when you place an order for any products if you wish to get the unique Nox Officer from the platoon pack INSTEAD of your free IMP38 Male Adventurer you can! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org title it with your order number and then 'please give me Nox Officer rather than IMP38' and we will do the rest. Excellent!
Later on in October we will be releasing another pack of miniatures by Dave Foley into the Ion Age Universe Range a pack of characters who deal with alien contact. We will be having a second entry in the Prydian Precinct articles this time written by Aris Kolehmainen all about the The Rheged Company taken from the Uniforms Poster we have. We also have a Patrol Angis after action report in the works as well which features a daring Khamel Bike raid upon the Yordists. A big event will happen in the middle of the month with the release of Patrol Angis and Callsign Taranis as paid for PDF download books on our website! Full news on this at the time.
Lastly we have a new monthly special...this time on one of the supporting packs for our mighty Taranis tanks..drones...we have 25% off the IAF082 Taranis Repulsar Drones for the whole month. The offer is now live and you can read more about these human sized robots on our blog HERE.
As always if you are reading this bulletin later in the month or further into the future please do have a look at our blog and use it as a time machine to read all the excellent content that is there going right back to our start. Try October 2014 for instance!
Thanks for your support and for enjoying The Ion Age!
