Huzzah! With the Prydian part of the 28mm Ion Age range now completely updated, we are moving onto the Shia Khan Empire. While this part of the range is rather smaller than the other, it will still take some time. Today, we begin with the largest of the Khanate soldiers – the Warlords and also their heavier armored Legionaries, the Pioneers.

Warlords and Pioneers

On the website, you can browse the range page by page or look to the 'filter by' option above the first line of products. Click on it and select what interests you (in this case, 'Warlord' or 'Pioneer' or 'Value Pack' or 'Shia Khan' to narrow the shown codes).

It was the appearance of Warlords among the ranks of the Khanate that led to the development of the Duxis and other marks of Battlesuits. Battlesuits are fashioned to be giant humanoids to wage war against actual giant humanoids. A nightmare of giants who could lift a man from the ground and smash him to pieces with ease. The Warlords are flesh and blood, but hulking creatures much like a Human in form, though standing twice or more the height of a man. They are commonly referred to as 'Ogres' and are another Khanate slave race. Warlords are often under the command of Legionaries, and are used as the infantry hammer to smash into tough areas for the Khanate. They carry the largest of infantry and support-type weapons, such as the Mars 20mm Chain Cannon. Not possessed of a great deal of intelligence, they are, despite this, the most dangerous soldier yet encountered by the Prydian Army.

IB38 – Legion Pioneers

Legion Pioneers

Value pack.

IA141 – Legion Pioneer with Flora Grenade Gun
IA142 – Legion Pioneer with Maia 9.6mm Mpi
IA143 – Legion Pioneer with Flora Grenade Gun
IA144 – Legion Pioneer with Plutus Carbine

Shia Khan Legion Pioneers are also Legionaries who wear the same reactive glimmer suit and carry the same weapons, but they are marked out as superior by their additional armor. They wear the Virtus Plating non-powered upper body armor across the head, chest and shoulders. Given tasks of greater danger, they are often found in urban battlefields. They use the same formations to the platoon level as other Legionaries. Tougher than their regular counterparts.

As with previous overhaul updates, the images are all new, and you save on the value packs plus every miniature is now a single code too. IB packs are made up of IA singles and save you 5% on their singles.

Next up are the worst of the worst… those Humans who turned against their own… the Betrayers. More on them soon…

Thanks for Reading!
