IAF172 Lord Pompous in Desteria Armour released

“PRESENTING HIS ILLUSTRIOUS MAJESTY” The little man was now pointing the megaphone directly at her, “THE KNIGHT OF ALL COLORS, LORD HIGH OF THE CHINTZ GATES, PROTECTOR OF THE FREE PEOPLES OF PRYDIA, KEEPER OF THE KEY TO BOLDARITY, KNOWER OF NO FEAR, MASTER OF HIS COMMAND, AND NOTED WELL DRESSER: LORD GAUD D. POMPOUS.”


Back in September last year it was my pleasure to present to all the IonFans out there the tale of a new hero in an article by our good friend Aris Kolehmainen.  After this article was put online it was downloads some three thousand times and momentum grew for its titular character to be made into a miniature in his own right.  Gathering support resulted in an agreement from us and now Baron Pompous is released in all his splendour!  Our only release for this month is now out! Go HERE or read on for more.  


IAF172 Lord Pompous
This code contains one 15mm scale white metal miniature in kit form composed of a body with two separate heads.  Dressed in customised and adorned Noblesse super heavy powered armour and cloak Lord Pompous is armed with a Moth Type 12 Multi Launcher.  Heads are supplied in helm (as shown) and bare headed giving a choice of build.  Refer to the free article for   Not supplied with a base (shown on a 20mm round base) and supplied unassembled and unpainted.  2.00GBP Go HERE.


Enjoy a tale set in The Ion Age a free article by our good friend Aris Kolehmainen.  An interview with a hero of the Desteria Knights who is not quite what he seems.  A fine read and it is followed by game statistics for using the character of Lord Pompous in your games. Click HERE to download this free four page article from our website.  The Interview contains a first person story as well as game rules.


The Desteria Knights are the super heavy infantry of the Prydian Army and of the Marcher Barons and the mercenary Condots.  Used to crack the hardest targets they carry the fire power of several Retained Knights and can withstand punishment which would destroy any lesser soldier.  We have a great value platoon pack of Desteria Knights which contains an additional free miniature unique to that code.  We also have two trooper packs and a command pack of these mighty soldiers which can all be seen on our website HERE.

We hope you like this new miniature and if you would like to make suggestions for future releases or characters please do tell us on info@theionage.com.

There will be further new releases next month and our month long offer in January is detailed HERE and is a discount on all Desteria Knight packs.

Thanks for Reading,

A Pompous Heavy January 2019 at The Ion Age

A new year is here! Welcome to the last annum of the decade and it will be a grand one for The Ion Age. We continue to grow and to expand the range as well as the game systems. This month we are all about the Desteria the heaviest knights of the Prydian Precinct. All this month we have taken twenty percent off every pack code (not the platoon nor singles) belonging to the Desteria. A great offer and in theme with this month's new release which will be coming middle of January when Lord Pompous becomes a 15mm reality! At that time we will update his free rules download along with the release. Desteria prices are already changed on screen and you can use your Reward Points as normal in orders. 


“MkII Noblesse Powered Armour. Stopping short of actually building armour that must be piloted rather than worn the awesome Noblesse pattern is worn by Desteria Knights into the thick of battle. Fully sealed titanium alloy with an average of 27mm thickness across the body Noblesse makes use of the Chameleon Circuit and also uses the Celo 9 ultra thin layer of insta-nate ablative shell designed to shatter when impacted by enemy fire. This additional layer of protection along with paldrons of re-enforced titanium makes Noblesse three times more protective than MkV Alwite. Some Desteria fit the large Delver X jump jets to their armour while others opt for the cabled generator cells for on board energy based weapons such as the Valerin laser. All Noblesse armour features the flexible manipulator Impact Fist which can perform delicate tasks as well as smashing up to one foot of rubbacrete. Noblesse carries a built in primary weapon on one arm with large sealed ammunition reserves.” Academy Auto-Trainer Series 21, New Glastonbury, 4321IC 


Desteria miniatures are bigger than normal and are 24mm in height on average compared to a Retained at 18mm tall.
