"While part of the military ranks of the Prydian Army the honoured role of a Knight Errant is often aloof from the mainstay of its ranks. There have been many text written on the reasons for taking up the sword and armour of the Knight Errant discussing why a man or a woman who has served many campaigns in the Retained feels the urge to leave their fellows and begin the Quest. The quest is among the most daring exploit that a Knight can undertake an it takes many forms. Reasons given are personal valour, personal loyalty, personal betrayal as well as love and adventure. This can cause Regiments a staffing problem but it is generally looked upon favourably by commanders who will, once the quest is proven, aid the Knight in its starting stages of undertaking. While many Knight Errants will leave the front lines and travel alone or in small groups some remain and continue to lead Lances and Banners in battle while the goal of their quest is in conjunction with the goal of the Regiment. Knight Errants have typical combat gear and armour but often are more experienced in the arts of war and are certainly more driven by their desire to complete their quest. It is not unknown for Knight Errants to be found on remote worlds and colonies aiding local Planetary Militia troops with their own conflicts while upon the quest. A few Knight Errants of exceptional bravery and fame will be invited to join the ranks of the Starvaulters and to take part in their Great Quests. The auto-trainer series has many thousands of recorded quests which the student can access upon request.”

The summer is here...well in Scotland the rain is now warm which is the same thing. The Ion Age continues its journey this month with a superb female knight errant for free and also two fantastic releases later in the month which will bring the weight to your Khanate armoured platoons in Patrol Angis. Working up to the Year Four Collection the tenth miniature of the year (ending in August 2017) IMP46 is one of the best looking female miniatures I personally have ever seen. Our special offer for the month is 25% off the pack of Knight Errants of Prydia along with a new image of this much favoured pack. The releases will be the Pugnus Light Tank and the Mannus APC which face off against Adders and Mullos in the ranks of the Prydian Army. Both these alien vehicles are featured in IAB03 The Khanate Return and indeed if you are fortunate enough to own a copy of the book you will have already seen these weird Khanate wheeled vehicles in its pages.
Free in every order, every time, all 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. You can see the Year Three Collection on the website. The Year Four Collection will be released in August and will mark the end of the monthly free programme at that time.
Standing 17mm tall and bare headed with her long hair falling across her Alwite powered armour the knight errant is armed with a Valerin Laser Rifle and wears a cloak. She is great for a character or leader of a lance. The painted example is a character called Briona Sullivan of the Barony of Messena (see it as Number 19 on the Uniforms of Prydia poster) who has an interesting story which will become clear later in June. 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. This miniature is worth 1.00GBP.
This month we have 25% off the great pack IAF057 Knight Errants of Prydia. This offer ends on 1st July. Just add to cart and it is the pack plus single poses from it to which the discount has been applied.
