Playing Prang in Patrol Angis a new free booklet

Earlier this month The Ion Age made all of its releases for the month with two new packs and a platoon pack of Prang Army.  These fantastic 15mm scale alien soldiers created by Eli Arndt are firm favourites among the 15mm science fiction community around the world.  We now present the updated free nine page booklet for using the Prang in your games of Patrol Angis.  Get it on the website from our dropbox HERE or read on and download it in this article.

The updated Prang booklet contains fiction, background and more as well as statistic tables for infantry, infantry sized vehicles and larger vehicles too.  It is an evolving play testing document and introduces vehicles which we will create in the future for this force in the game.  You will need a copy of Patrol Angis to make use of this free booklet and for the larger vehicles we recommend the expansion Callisign Taranis.  Download the Prang Army in Patrol Angis free PDF from our dropbox by clicking HERE.  Thanks and enjoy!

Now on the website are two more packs of Prang Army to add to your collection and a platoon pack containing one of every pose and an additional miniature only found in the platoon.  Go HERE for their page on the website.  Additionally if you missed previous related articles you can read them HERE and HERE on our blog including a tale of Prang and Human war against the Shia Khan Empire and a lot of pictures.

Have you tried Patrol Angis?  The Ion Age's 15mm scale skirmish system.  There are three books in the series so far and they can be had in print or as cheaper digital downloads as well as value bundles and a game pack too.  All HERE.  For skirmish you need only the Patrol Angis book, to add larger vehicles and more then get the expansion Callsign Taranis and to fight the alien Shia Khan Empire you need the first army book called The Khanate Return.

Patrol Angis
15mm Scale Skirmish Wargaming
Wargame rules for use with 15mm miniatures and models. An enjoyable playing experience in a space opera setting unlike any other. Tactically challenging but not complex, these rules reward players for their playing and not by the use of endless charts, tables and over powered characters. Once familiar with the game rules, in a single hour you can play a full game with another person or several or on your own in solo play. The rules will not take long to learn and are suitable for wargamers of all ages from novice to veteran. They are fun and can be expanded into other titles in the series.  Patrol Angis is a skirmish level of wargame which means it typically has between a dozen and about forty 15mm scale miniatures a side in play during a game. It works well with more but those amounts are ideal. Most games have one Platoon sized force per player and have one or two or maybe even three players. A Platoon or Lance which contains typically twenty two (22) miniatures. In Patrol Angis you play either as the Prydian Army in its quest to reclaim worlds lost to the Marcher Barons during the Civil War or you can play in the employ of Canlaster or Yordist or any of the other dozen smaller array of Marcher Barons. This includes playing as a “Conda”' or paid professional mercenary for any side.

This is low intensity warfare title where troops mainly on foot, root each other out over small objectives. It’s not massive, not often glamorous, but it’s pure adventure, it’s the stuff of heroes and it’s skirmishing at its best! Easy to get into and to build upon. It’s the starting point for your wargaming in The Ion Age!

A4 Book, 64 Pages.  All the mechanics you need to play plus more is in the book.  Here is a short list of the contents of the book and if you can look at example pages.  All pages are packed with content.

Still to come this month is an updated and expanded free booklet for the Xin Trade Fleet and remember our monthly deal is 25% off the core pack of Xin Rifles.  You can see these far future Chinese soldiers on our website HERE.

Thanks for Reading,
