The Ion Age has released Desteria Demi Beta - the companion pack for the Prydian Army's heavy power armor.
Demi Beta contains five Desteria Knights - each armed with an Impact Fist for smashing through armored infantry, creatures, vehicles and bulkheads. For ranged combat, they are armed with a mix of Hermit Plasma Rifles, Urgan dual-bore shotguns, and a Valerin Laser Rifle. A couple of these poses were in the sample pack sent to me by Gavin (see here for the review and comparisons), and I'm going to order plenty more of these for the highest echelons of my space opera factions.

When The Ion Age's new website was launched, one of the first things everyone noticed was this piece of Sam Croes artwork - depicting a female Retained Knight.
Unfortunately, no matching sculpts existed for the 15mm Retained Knights. Gavin received numerous requests for some female Retained poses - and the Ion Age crew has the project well underway.
Take a look over at The Ion Age Blog for more details - it's one of the most enthusiastic responses I've seen to feedback from the 15mm community.
That's a great figure! I'm sure it will really resonate with those that like the Sisters of Battle imagery. I also always like seeing female figures that aren't over-sexualized or in ridiculous armor.ReplyDelete
Hello Mr Harold,Delete
Thanks. I will tell Sam Croes. In the posting on the Ion Age blog I talk about the styling and how to make her a lady but without making her...well too female as it were.
p.s. Best of fortune with the Helldivers pre-order run!
She will make a nice looking character or heroin type figure, what a great looking sculpt.... While i am very pleased to see some female knight figures being produced for the Ion age i would like to know if there are any plans to produce a few more male knights with cloaks in the same style as the first give away miniature as i can picture a squad of them being used as a personal retinue or body guard for a baron, the cloak could be a additional status symbol worn by knights who are hand picked for this honorable duty..ReplyDelete
I have addressed your comment over on the Ion Age blog at more length.
Just what I've been waiting for - 15mm Sisters of Battle proxies :)ReplyDelete
Thanks also to the growing number on IonFans who have made IAF010 the best selling new release so far. People do love the super heavy armour or perhaps it was your pictures of size comparisons. More news next week.
