A big expansion to the massive 28mm Ion Age miniature range with 16 new poses, a new faction, and taking us up to over 230 different poses. Wow!

Grima robotic infantry
The Planetary Militia are present on virtually every world of the Prydian Precinct, and while the bulk of its troops are Men and Women, there is another type of soldier who fights – the Grima Combat Robots. Under Human control at all times and incapable of independent thought, these machines selflessly serve using the same weapons and equipment that regular Planetary Militia do. Specialist operators control them, issuing programmed orders.
Grima concept

If you wish to read in depth into the Guran Activation in 4302IC and about the Grima, there is an article on our blog for you (it also includes scale photos).


Winter Mega Event 2023 is on until 6th December. 20% off all orders, auto at check-out, plus free new miniature, as well as 80 new codes and 100 deals and offers. See our blog for the entire event and all details. Not to be missed!

There are three packs of Grima Robots and a pack of PM Controllers. As always, a pack offers a wee saving over singles, and every miniature is a single in the range too. See all of the Grima Robots or the Planetary Militia on the website refined searches.

Painted examples

Here are four painted examples of typical uniforms of the Grima Combat Robot. Every planet has its own ideas on coloration, with some core worlds matching the robots to regiments of Muster or even Retained powered plate armor.

Currently in the works at Alternative Armies are playing drafts of Moth 2.0, and early work on a new edition of Firefight as well. These, among many other updates, will feature mechanics for the Grima Robots. More news on this in 2024.
