Ikwen Rock Village WIP - Part Two

For folks following this project, here is my second video commenting on the process of this build.

New Month, New Free Mini!

Well here we are in April (already!) and the fine folks at The Ion Age are treating us to another of their wonderful, character-full, unique character miniatures.

This month we see an enigmatic Female Shia Khan Legion Officer. Cape and all, she advances forward, weapon in hand and defiance in her eyes, making her presence known among her troops.

April's unique miniatures will come free with any purchase through the month of April. It can also be purchased separately for those wanting just the figure or multiples of the figure.

For full details on this and other Ion Age news go - HERE 

For those who are new to The Ion Age or who may have missed the special miniatures last year, take a look at the Year One Collection (above). This set of miniatures collects all twelve unique figures from 2014 and makes them available for purchase as a set.

Salute and Spring Season Sale Offers Deals and Discounts

From the mouth of Gavin,

We had a massive uptake on the first set pre-orders of the 15mm Human Fantasy Buildings and that combined with the shipping of the Yandrassi Kickstarter for Loud Ninja Games and also other work on Alternative Armies and The Ion Age has meant a crazy couple of weeks for us. But we are now back with superb news. Our annual spring offer month is now live!

We have a code for 15% off all orders and the offer of a Goody Bag free in every order too. On top of that we have today released the HOB01 Buildings onto the website and in the linked blog post we tell you the releases for the next month. So you can plan your orders and work out when and what you want.

Read on for more information and we would like to thank all of you for your continued support. Its our aim to bring you the best in generic 15mm scale wargaming for Fantasy, Historical and Science Fiction. Enjoy the offers and if you have questions please do feel free to email me.

We are not attending any conventions in person this spring but this does not mean we are not making our annual offers during April to our worldwide customer base as they have come to expect from us. We will be having new releases and more during this period but the offers here apply to each and every one of them all the same. So while you will not see us at Salute 2015 in London this April on Alternative Armies trade stand here is what we are offering you:
