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.

Ground Zero Games releases NEW 15mm MERCENARY/IRREGULAR TROOPS and more!

Jon at Ground Zero Games has announced some great new releases:


The first packs are now available in an extensive new range of figures that can serve many purposes within your army - with a wide variety of uniforms and headgear, and carrying a mix of various low- to mid-tech weaponry, we’ve called them “Mercs”, but these troops can represent individualistic but highly trained Mercenary units, Special Forces teams or PMCs (Private Military Contractors), or equally be irregular militia, resistance fighters or almost anything else that you want them to be! There is a good mix of male and female troops within the range, and hopefully almost everyone will be able to find a role for a group of these attached to their army, or even as a complete force in their own right.

Every different figure sculpt in this range is highly individual in style, and they also lend themselves perfectly to further customisation with some simple head swaps using our SG15-XH1 and XH2 “head packs”.

AVAILABLE NOW: ALL PACKS £3.00 each (inc VAT) or £2.50 ex VAT for non-EU customers.

SG15-M01    Mercs rifles pack A - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: 3 male figures and 1 female figure, all with various rifles and headgear (beret, field caps, bareheaded).
SG15-M02    Mercs rifles pack B - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: all female figures, with various rifles, all bareheaded.
SG15-M03    Mercs rifles pack C - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: all male figures, with various rifles, all bareheaded.
SG15-M04    Mercs squad support pack with SAWs/LMGs - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: male and female figures advancing, male and female figures prone firing.

COMING SOON: further support packs with RPGs and rocket launchers, marksmen (and women) with sniping rifles, command groups and “character” leader figures, groundmount heavy weapons and crews, gunners and weapons for the backs of trucks and pickups (ideal to make the “technicals” so commonly used by irregular forces) and more!


Other NEW RELEASES available NOW: (All £3.00 per pack inc VAT, 2.50 ex VAT):
For the CDF (Colonial Defence Force) range:

SG15-C22    CDF mounted scouts in field caps (2 horses, 2 riders in different poses).
For the FSE Colonial Legion troops:
SG15-F24    FSE Colonial Legion troops in KEPI - Command and Comms pack (8 figures, 2 each of 4 different sculpts).
SG15-F25    FSE Colonial Legion troops in KEPI - RAM Mortars pack (2 weapon teams each of mortar, base mount and 2 crew figures).

More new items to follow soon in several of our most popular 15mm ranges!


Another awesome set of releases from GZG, and those mercs are going to be very useful for all genres and forces!

Kickstarter Alert! Marine Tactical Unit - 15mm Scale Miniatures by White Dragon Miniatures

Back the Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1393708645/marine-tactical-unit-15mm-scale-miniatures


Here is a size comparison picture, they really look on the mark!

White Dragon Miniatures is running their kick starter to get their awesome 15mm infantry into production:

Welcome to our kickstarter for the 15mm Marine Tactical Unit. Taken from within our Shattered Void Universe that we have spent 3 years developing and building on. While we are working on Shattered Void, a fast-paced space dog fighting game, We wanted to explore some other areas of the universe and with what better way but some ground forces? So your first question comes to mind.....

The Marine Tactical Unit are the frontline soldiers of the Earth Exploration Fleet in the Shattered Void universe which we at White Dragon Miniatures are currently creating.
The Marines are the true boots on the ground, working with modern tech and trained in advance warfare for FIBUA (fighting in built up areas) and ship boarding actions. They operate in small teams of 6 men per section, and 18 men in a multiple. They are able to quickly improvise, adapt and overcome whatever the task issued.  

Each Multiple of marines are assigned an Armadillo Support Bot, able to carry heavy equipment without effort and also carrying one of 3 support guns (Chain cannon, Grenade Launcher and Missile Launcher). It also features a large armoured plate on one side, able to protect soldiers using it as cover in exposed areas. The armoured plate features a reactive armour shield while the Armadillo provides the squad much needed covering fire with their choice of weapon turret and finally as a resupply and communications hub.  

Finally the Proteus Frontline Battle Mech is one of the main spearhead unit available to the MTU forces. Carrying huge calibre weapons in its arms and thick armour that can with stand some severe punishment, they march across the battlefield bringing destruction and ruin to their opposition.

Along with the awesome infantry, they have a very cool mech and support unit:

It's always nice to see a new, unique, range of 15mm soldiers on the road to production and these look very nicely designed!

The Kickstarter ends on  Sun, Jun 14 2015, so check it out today!

New Month in The Ion Age

Hey all,

Here we are, June already and that means another awesome special miniature available from The Ion Age. This month brings us the IMP22 Malig Campaigner.

The Malig Campaigner represents a veteran space goblin, festooned with all the material he has accumulated in his long fight. It looks like this chap has everything but the kitchen sink and I'm sure he has the field equivalent in there someplace.

IMP22 Malig Campaigner is available free with any order from The Ion Age and can be purchased for those who wish to order it separately or want to receive more than one with their order. This figure will be available through the month of June, 2015.

With the release of the Ion Age rules, "Patrol Angis" this is the perfect time to pick up rules, miniatures and special figures alike. For full info on this and other releases, head over - HERE

Take care and have fun!
