New Ikwen animals and weapons 15mm releases from Loud Ninja Games

Back in November a new pack of 15mm Ikwen Hardened Fighters were released by Loud Ninja Games and now these are backed up with three more packs for the Ikwen world of Kwiell sculpted by Eli Arndt.  A weapons sprue for conversions and to add to scenics plus two packs of native animal life which are great for any 15mm scale system. Go HERE or read on for more.  All of the releases from Alternative Armies this week!


"The Ikwen are one side of an asymmetric war against a higher tech, invading enemy. They fight in a less organized, militia style, utilizing acquired weapons, not of their of own manufacture."


RAP039 Silt Pigs of Kwiell
Aliens invaded the primitive world of Kwiell for its resources and got into several wars with the native Ikwen.  One of the prime animal sources of food for the Ikwen are the Silt Pigs and aliens favour them too.  Heavy and ponderous they are dangerous if taken on unarmed with clawed feet and spines upon their backs. This pack contains three miniatures which are a rearing up adult Silt Pig (1), a walking Silt Pig (2) and a base of Silt Piglets (3) in 15mm scale white metal.  These go excellently with Ikwen infantry and scenery codes.  All miniatures are supplied unpainted and without bases.  You can also select singles from this page on the page. 2.50GBP.


RAP040 Small Animals of Kwiell
Aliens invaded the primitive world of Kwiell for its resources and got into several wars with the native Ikwen.  There are scavengers and other animals which pry on Silt Pigs as well as unwary Ikwen and even alien invaders. This pack contains three miniatures which are Thrask which is a fast running ambusher (1), two different Rock Crawlers, one with a shorter shell (2) and a longer shell (3) all in 15mm scale white metal.  These go excellently with Ikwen infantry and scenery codes.  All miniatures are supplied unpainted and without bases.  You can also select singles from this page on the page. 1.00GBP.


RAP040 Ikwen Weapons Sprue
The desert world fighters of the Ikwen are hardy aliens who are fighting to free their world from invaders from outerspace.  They do this with a mix of weapons made by themselves or bought from off world.  This 15mm white metal sprue contains the typical weapons of the Ikwen miniatures (RAP016,RAP017,RAP018 and RAP037) we have.  Add them to your Ikwen fighters or use them for conversions or scenic items.  They are from left to right: Rocket Launcher, Long Melee Weapon, Light Machine Gun, Assault Rifle and Melee Weapon.  Five pieces supplied unpainted and unassembled.  1.00GBP. 

Miniatures manufactured and sold in agreement with Loud Ninja Games. For all of these new codes go HERE to the website.  If you missed the last Ikwen releases then you can see them on the LNG page of the website or below.  Also check out the Ikwen Platoon saver pack and the terrain of Kwiell packs too.


RAP037 Ikwen Hardened Fighters
Over a generation ago, the planet Kwiell was set upon by aliens bent on exploiting the natural resources of the planet. The planet’s native population, the Ikwen, found themselves suddenly enslaved and their society rocked as they were enslaved, put to work and in many cases hunted and killed. The Ikwen have spent decades in frustrated servitude to these invading overlords. We see them as very much freedom-fighting indigenous life forms, use them as alien invaders, allies, mercenaries or even lower tech indigenous forces for more organized warfare. This pack contains (6) six different 15mm scale white metal miniatures armed with a mix of blades and pistols.  Excellent melee soldiers and Ikwen leaders.


RAP038 Zthruk 
This pack contains one 15mm scale white metal miniature. This beast stands 20mm tall to the head and can be used as a creature for any alien world or as an ally of the Ikwen. The Zthruk is a very powerful animal with a vicious temper which are hunted by the Ikwen while a few of the most noble Ikwen ride them into battle.
