Huge news, everyone... a new age is upon us!
The Ion Age, the signature space opera setting from Alternative Armies and 15mm.Co.Uk, has been spun off into its own creation. TheIonAge.Com is now live - including the webstore, some background information about the universe, and featuring some of the finest space opera artwork you'll ever see on a miniature gaming site.
The 15mm section has opened by stealing the existing Ion Age miniatures from 15mm.Co.Uk's HOF section, but Gavin Syme has loads of new products just around the corner. A quick look at the menu reveals that we will soon see new publications, new vehicles, and terrain. As a taste for what's to come, The Ion Age has released Balthazar and Jerome - character figures depicting a Prydian Retained Knight and his loyal varlet.
To keep us informed of The Ion Age's progress, Gavin Syme has launched The Ion Age Blog. Gavin is renowned for his support of the miniature gaming world, and I have no doubt that he will quickly build a thriving community around The Ion Age. And as a long-time enthusiast of space opera settings, I am very eager to be part of that community!
Head on over to TheIonAge.Com to look around, and don't forget to follow The Ion Age Blog!
This could be the start of something quite beautiful...ReplyDelete
You are quite right Zac...more on Thursday of this week.Delete
Kind words indeed and very appreciated by me and the rest of the Ion Age team. Do please check out the blog DSH fans and read the posts for more on the Ion Age.
Love space opera sci-fi in 15mm...your gonna love The Ion Age.
I do too, Gavin. Quite frankly, the near future gamers have had it too well in 15mm.Delete
As a great mercenary once said... It's time for some thrilling heroics!
I am with you there Chris. Gritty near future is cool but it really does limit creative design elements unless you go alien.Delete
Are you going to sculpt non-Sister of Battle 15mm miniatures?
Please! yes, please!
Thanks for your praise!Delete
Do you mean female 15mm Retained Knights in powered armour Slorm? Drop me an email at info (at)theionage.com for a chat.
I seconded for female Retained KnightsDelete
Absolutely, female Retained Knights are a must. These are great, I look forward to learning more about the universe, and in pressganging some of these figures for 15mm Fading Suns mass battles.Delete
Always happy to see new 15mm options, but not a big fan of exclusive figs.ReplyDelete

Due to this new relaunch I am really hoping that TPTB involve the gaming community a bit more and request for some thoughts and ideas such as miniature figure and vehicle designs, and maybe posting the occasional competition and also posting up photos and articles that are sent in on the new website.ReplyDelete
A sa example with the release of the new exclusive retainer knight miniature i would like to see several more retainer knights miniature wearing cloaks which could be used as elite guards and their cloaks being their status symbol or even retainer knight scouts and the cloaks could be simply used as a camouflage aid, just a thought...

Hi Gavin big fan! how does this title play different from your use me line? Are there simillar mechanics? Would the bolt on solo rules work on this system? Also Will there be a bat rep to show it all of? lets see some dice roll!
