Playing Xin in Patrol Angis a new free booklet

The Xin updated free booklet for using in Patrol Angis is here!  The Prang have had their new releases and updated free booklet but now it is the turn for the Trade Fleet of the Xin Hegemony to get their update.  These fantastic 15mm scale space opera Chinese inspired soldiers are well liked by 15mm sci-fi players the globe over.  We now present the updated free six page booklet for using the Sanbao 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 Xin 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 Xin in Patrol Angis free PDF from our dropbox by clicking HERE. Thanks and enjoy!

If you like the idea of a trading space fleet which does ply the stars buying and selling and fighting then perhaps the Xin are for you.  See their page on our website HERE.

During July we have an offer on the core pack of Xin Rifle Infantry too.

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 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.

Thanks for Reading,



  1. This and the Prang are great expansions. Thanks for the hard work. Now to bother you with a request. Could we see some concept art for the upcoming walkers and vehicles? Excited to see what you have in mind after the awesome Khanate vehicles...


    1. Thanks man. Appreciate it. Often feeling I am howling into the void. August for more on the massive expansion of the Shia Khan that is coming. Concepts a plenty and frothing fun! I will pass on the kind words about the Pugnus and Manus. GBS
