Gavin Syme GBS Sponsoring Member of TMP of Alternative Armies writes:

It is important to note that the creation of the Prydian Army actually contributed greatly to the rise of both Yordan and Canlaster. Before the formation of the Army, the Marcher Barons had little room for movement, they could hire mercenaries and police their own worlds but the Starvaulters kept them in check. Taking men and women from the planets of the barons and giving them so much training and weaponry only stoked the fires of civil war. Certainly the hundreds of new regiments put down the rebels for several years, but then they became rebels themselves as their loyalty was first to their baron and not the throne. Granted, not all of the regiments abandoned the throne. Those that stayed loyal have done an excellent job of fortifying the whole Glastonbury system, which has kept us safe from the war up to this point, but we have very much been the architects of our own demise. We were warned by many, but we chose to ignore them all. Kadj Dace got what he wanted; not by the means he planned, but by accident of design. Prydia is aflame, and none among us can stop it.

Alternia of the Iron Age

June marks the halfway point of the year! The sixth of a dozen (one each month all year) new Alternia miniatures is free in every package sent out from Scotland to customers. Place your order, as many as you wish, and she will automatically be included. Any size of order, the only exception is no digital-only orders; as long as it is shipped, it gets the free miniature. Ends 1st July 2022 for ALT006. See our mascot Alternia range on our website.

Alternia of the Iron Age

This month, our mascot is inspired by the mighty Ion Age 28mm range and setting. In the armor of a female Retained Knight, she fits right in with the hundreds of other Ion Age miniatures, suitable for any game system, including MOTH and Firefight 2.0. In two pieces (separate back jet-pack), she is armed with an Angis Rifle and a powered halberd. Her helm sits at her feet and her hair flows over her shoulders. Her pauldron is emblazoned with the AA arrowhead too. Use her in the Prydian Army or in the service of the Marcher Barons and Condot Mercenaries. She is painted up here as a Condot Mercenary.


If you missed any of the previous Alternias, they are, as promised, on the website for purchase as single miniatures. There are now a total of seven, including the original high-fantasy pose.
