Super-Size It!

Happy Burger Gets a New Bot

Back in March, The Ion Age saw the introduction of another piece of its mythos - Happy Burger - in the form the Happy Burger Bot. The Happy Burger Bot was a great human form servant bot with a lot of use built into it. The new Vending Bot follows in the footsteps of it's predecessor's non-combat character greatness.

The cool thing about miniatures like this is that they really can be used for many things besides their intended use. Such a basic shape could easily be painted in other schemes besides a corporate vending bot. In medical colors it could be a medical droid. But some industrial colors on it and perhaps it is an space port diagnostic bot. Heck, throw it into your command group and this noncombatant robot can suddenly be a portable command console.

Like the other special monthly miniatures, the Vending Bot is available free with any order from The Ion Age as well as for purchase for those who want multiples or just the Vending Bot. This miniatures will be available through the end of July, 2015.

New Release From the Ion Age

Portable Support Weapons for the Planetary Militia

The Planetary Militia have been getting a lot of cool releases in the last few weeks and this week is no exception. This week we see the release of 6 variants of towed support weaponry to give your PM ground forces some heavy firepower. 

Each of the variants comes with a wheeled carriage and tow bar that will attach to any of the Ion Age vehicles (and I imagine others in your collections as well). The weapons mount in to a simple socket making assembly simple and straight forward. 

Also, in other news, The Ion Age has released movement trays suited to fit the bases and unit sizes for the Patrol Angis rules set. These make moving squads about the table simple and helps keep them in unit coherency. While designed for the Ion Age bases, they would work for any other similarly sized bases.

Marine Tactical Unit - 15mm Scale Miniatures (UPDATE)

Painted pics from White Dragon Miniatures new Kickstarter 

Mark Stone of White Dragon Miniatures posted this pic of a painted version of one of his Marine Tactical Unit infantry alongside the massive, amazing Proteus Frontline Battle Mech. The render images of these were incredible enough, but this superbly painted example of the machine really shows it as the business.

This mecha, along with the MTU troops and their support Armadillo Support bot are part of a run away Kickstarter that promises some delightful stretch goals including an alternate Proteus with a railgun.
