The Ion Age is delighted to make all of its miniature releases for April 2017, and to announce the Salute Week Promotion is now live as well, as to make the pre-orders open for the next Patrol Angis book, The Khanate Return.

You can now pre-order your copy of the next Patrol Angis book, The Khanate Return, which will ship in early May, as well as getting the new print-run of the other books which will ship with it. Learn more about this new book from previous articles on our blog. Full details to follow or go here, straight to the website main page for the whole show.

When the promotion period ends, all normal orders will be sent out as usual, and all orders containing the new book, and the new print runs of the other two books, will be sent out on or just before 8th May, 2017, when general release of them at normal price occurs, and the digital download edition of IAB03 The Khanate Return is released too.

IAB03 – The Khanate Return
IAB03 – The Khanate Return – Save 10% Pre-Order
The third book in the Patrol Angis series is a new setting and forces title, with statistics and rules for use with 15mm miniatures and models from The Ion Age. This Army Book brings you to the Camarthen star system for a desperate campaign for possession of a planet upon which sits an alien Matter Gateway. Now that it is switched on, the gateway has brought a mythical enemy of Humanity back to reality from far across the galaxy; The Shia Khan Empire. Making use of the Patrol Angis rulebook for skirmishes and the Callsign Taranis expansion book for larger games, you can now add the Khanate Empire and also Planetary Defense Forces to your games. Read all about the tragic fate of Camarthen Prime and the start of the second Khanate War as a world burns. You can then create and assemble your own Tesserans and Ordos (platoons) along with vehicles and more for the Khanate with armory and army lists. Then consult army lists for the Planetary Militias to do the same with Troop Types, Armour, Weapons and platoon composition guides. There are also advanced rules for both new armies, covering Nebula Charges, Humascare, and Robotic Infantry, among other skills and equipment. The book ends with three small scenarios of varying complexity for new and experienced players. This Army Book joins up with other titles expanding the forces and the universe of The Ion Age. Put forces from a half dozen miniatures to more than a hundred, including vehicles, into play. Fight for victory on Camarthen Prime or take your fight elsewhere in the Prydian Precinct. You require Patrol Angis and Callsign Taranis to make full use of this book. The book will ship 8th May, 2017.

Providing a great core of infantry poses to your Khanate platoons of verminous Maligs, this pack is excellent. The discount is online, and all you need to do is add to cart, reward points are as normal, and can be used on this offer too. Offer ends 1st May.

IMP44 – Malig Egg Thief
IMP44 – Malig Egg Thief
Free in Every Order this month, and it can also be purchased in any amount too. We present our little Goblin thief. Standing 12mm to the eye-line – the Malig Egg Thief labors under the weight of a Skrak Terror Bird egg that he has liberated, and is heading for any giant frying pan he can find (perhaps Senga can lend him one). Dressed in typical Malig fashion, this is a unique 15mm miniature.

Please enjoy the promotion and the pre-order of the new book. You make my living in a great industry, and I really appreciate that.

Thanks for Reading!
