Before Patrol Angis and the titanic expansion of the 15mm Ion Age range, there was MOTH, the skirmish game system for the more than 300 poses in the 28mm Ion Age miniature range. MOTH has been out of printed stock for a long time, but upon customer request, we had a short new run made up! So you can get the book in print or paid digital download (20% less than print) now. MOTH was the starting point for the Prydian Civil War.


Three Prydian Retained in their typical white and red titanium plate. Every miniature can be had as a pack or within the pack as single poses. We also have value sets of whole platoons and lances which give you miniatures for free within them. Retained, Muster, Legion, Betrayers and Malig Goblins. Great for any 28mm game system in Space Opera style!


There is a free folder of useful files for MOTH, which is now on the page for the book with a link. It contains rosters, templates and a starter scenario which ties into the book too. Click below for the range.


MOTH lets you to play out anything from a small skirmish with half a dozen miniatures a side right up to a squad-level battle with more than a hundred miniatures in play if you so desire. Play with 28mm or 15mm miniatures from the Ion Age. This is a game that is fast to learn, fast to play, and great for younger novice players and experienced tacticians alike. MOTH has a clever central mechanic based around the D10 (ten-sided dice) and the adaptable Elan Rating system. This, when combined with fluid squad mechanic, allows players to add to and remove from their squads in play. Plus unique features such as Break Shots, Degrade Fire, two action choice, among many others makes the game flow excellently and combines tension with fun in battle. Use cover, avoid open ground, call on your fellows for support. Win the Prydian Civil War for your noble masters!

Thanks for Reading!
