New 15mm Malig Space Goblins (more than fifty poses total) added to The Ion Age

The Legions of the Shia Khan Empire are the main fighting force of the Empire and the expendable cannon fodder of the Legions are the Space Goblins or Maligs as they are known.  Drawn from endless slave worlds in great hordes the Maligs are treated roughly and given weapons beyond their understanding. Commanded by all and in command of nothing.  Shoved into Tesserans (8 Troops) and Ordos (32 Troops) the Maligs don't last long in combat but they perform a valuable role; they kill Humans.  Crass, brutal and often savage the word Malig is hated by all.  

Welcome to the first new release into the 15mm Ion Age range since the return of the ranges to Alternative Armies.  This is our only Ion Age release this month and we have taken the chance to not only put out eight new Maligs but also to highlight the now more than fifty poses of Space Goblin which we have.  Click HERE for the whole 15mm range.  Remember to use the 'filter' option on the page to narrow down the packs which appear.  As always you can purchase a pack, three packs with a saving or single poses from any pack.  Great in any 15mm game system including Patrol Angis.

IAF166 Malig 5th Tesseran – Maia Mpi
This is the new Malig 5th Tesseran which is eight miniatures dressed in unpowered armour.  Created by request from IonFans as they felt they were missing from the choice of Space Goblins.  An officer (pose 1) with a Maia and Cupid Pistol along with seven poses of trooper (privates) armed with Maia 9.2mm Mpi's. Great for skirmishing and then combining with other Khanate codes for larger formations and battles.Go HERE.

Here is a list of all the Space Goblin codes we have in 15mm scale from infantry to bike, to vehicle, riding beasts and characters.  They are linked to make them easy to find on the website.

IAF047 Malig 1st Tesseran – Juno Rifles
IAF048 Malig 2nd Tesseran – Support Weapons
IAF049 Malig 3rd Tesseran – Grenadiers
IAFP01 Malig Ordos – Platoon Pack (includes Senga character with Frying Pan)

A 15mm scale vehicle kit.

IMP10 Malig Tank Ace (One Character)
IMP22 Malig Campaigner (One Character)
IMP31 Padraig O'Malig (One Character)
IMP44 Malig Egg Thief (One Character)

So many verminous outer space little buggers!  But who are their masters?

IAB03 The Khanate Return
An Army Book for the Patrol Angis game system.  You need Patrol Angis and Callsign Taranis to make full use of this expansion title.  This Army Book brings you to the Camarthen star system for a desperate campaign for possession of a planet upon which sits an alien Matter Gateway. Now that it is switched on the gateway has brought a mythical enemy of Humanity back to reality from far across the galaxy; The Shia Khan Empire. Making use of the Patrol Angis rule book for skirmishes and the Callsign Taranis expansion book for larger games you can now add the Khanate Empire and also Planetary Defence Forces to your games. Read all about the tragic fate of Camarthen Prime and the start of the second Khanate War as a world burns. You can then create and assemble your own Tesserans and Ordos (platoons) along with vehicles and more for the Khanate with armoury and army lists. Then consult army lists for the Planetary Militias to do the same with Troop Types, Armour, Weapons and platoon composition guides. There are also advanced rules for both new armies covering Nebula Charges, Humascare,and Robotic Infantry among other skills and equipment. The book ends with three small scenarios of varying complexity for new and experienced players. This Army Book joins up with other titles expanding the forces and the universe of The Ion Age. Put forces from a half dozen miniatures to more than a hundred including vehicles into play. Fight for victory on Camarthen Prime or take your fight elsewhere in the Prydian Precinct.  See the Ion Age Publications page for all these titles in print and as digital downloads.

Free Ion Age Downloads
We have a page on the website HERE where you can download nine folders of free content for our space opera setting which tie right into these miniatures and the Patrol Angis game system.  There are full scenarios which include the Maligs.  You can also have a dig through the Ion Age Blog but keep in mind that any free files mentioned are now on this new page and that all links to the other website are deactivated.  That said it is a massive free resource of fiction and images.  Use the search box on the Alternative Armies site if you see codes you like the look of.

Thanks for Reading,
