The Ion Age now at Alternative Armies

It was a mad busy month of May for me.  Alongside my normal work and all the wargaming fun (The Regimenta Sanna Annie and the Asgard Barbarians were a blast) I had the task of migrating the entire Ion Age website over to its new home at Alternative Armies in four weeks.  I managed it with a few days to spare and also managed to upload all of the free content folders and update the images of the 28mm miniature range too.  In celebration of this we are offering 10% off every miniatures in all scales along with all terrain, posters and books in print and digital download in the WHOLE Ion Age until 9am GMT 10th June 2019.  The discount is on screen and applied to all items including bundles and game packs (on top of the buy three save 10% too) so just add to cart plus now of course if you want something else from the site you can do that too.  Go HERE and look to the top right end of the ranges bar on the home screen or read on.There are now FIVE collections on Alternative Armie

The Ion Age returns to Alternative Armies

Please read this major announcement from The Ion Age.  Thank you.'This galaxy has decided to gorge upon itself, to consume its vitality once more in pointless slaughter that will see those left afterwards little more than mono-planet atom burners.  Well, its not going to happen, not again.  My father, your king, died for the dream that Prydia held dear and in two decades of civil war we here also have nearly lost that promise of freedom we hold equally dear.  We will all have that freedom again mark me, the Barons will pay and those beings not of mankind that are even now forcing open the doors will be thrown back to the Anwnn where they came from.  Prydia will rise once more and I will, with the aid of the Starvaulters, make it happen.'Princess Daphe Cyon address to the Council of Aeddans 4330ICBack in July 2013 I was given the chance to take what existed of the space opera setting of The Ion Age and develop it as a free standing entity apart from Alternative Armies.

Skylark Patrol Flyer MkII at The Ion Age

Since before the outbreak of the Prydian Civil War the various marks of the Type 41 Skylark Patrol Flyers have been part of the Muster regiments of the Precinct. Based on a designed from the era of the Ban of Prejudice the Type 41 was put into renewed mass production on seven worlds before the Battle of Fenway Prime. While the Adder Combat Car fulfils the needed role of a multi propulsion ground transport for Muster Platoons there was a need for an armed transport that could move in three dimensions. The Skylark fulfils this role well with the objective of moving troops from a staging area to the combat zone with no intervening stages. Capable of dramatic bursts of speed with its four jet engines the howl of an incoming Skylark is common to the ears of friend and foe alike. The Type 41 was given the name Skylark during its testing on New Glastonbury with a hint of humour. That species of ancient Terran bird was brought to New Glastonbury during its long ago original colonisation and its swooping
