Now on our website and by popular request The Ion Age is delighted to announce that you can now purchase the mighty Patrol Angis and its expansion title Callsign Taranis as paid for download books. Both 15mm wargame books on their own and a discounted bundle of the two of them together saving ten percent. The download books are twenty percent cheaper than the print books which we think is fair. We want to point out too that if you do not order a physical product (any order you pay shipping upon) you will not get the monthly free miniature sorry. But you do still get your Reward Points and you can use your points against these new digital downloads. Excellent. Go HERE.
There are three options for you to get into our 15mm space opera wargame rule system digitally and these match up to the same options you have in print (except for the game pack). The print books are now into their deep second run and are all over the world. If you were waiting for a download version to try them out now is your time.
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! 64 Page Book, Separate Book Covers as PDF's. Go HERE. 10.00GBP
Patrol Angis is a skirmish level wargame and with Callsign Taranis you can move from the low intensity infantry focused warfare of the core game which was your starting point in this universe to something a bit larger and multi faceted too. Make use of vehicles from the humble Adder to the supporting Mullo and of course the mighty Taranis super heavy main battle tank. Introduce flying vehicles, hurwent energy shields, buildings, drones and mecha too. Play solo or with two or more players with games featuring one Platoon (22 Miniatures or several vehicles) a side up to four or even six Platoons a side (100 or more miniatures or a dozen vehicles) with smaller games taking less than an hour to play out. In Callsign Taranis you still choose to play as either the Prydian Army or in the employ of Canlaster or Yordan or any number of lesser rebel Marcher Barons all vying for the throne. This includes playing as a “Conda” or professional mercenary too for any side. Callsign Taranis contains all the rules you need to make use of vehicles and structures in other titles in the series.
