Warlords and Pioneers start of the Khanate pt8 Ion Age 28mm overhauling

Huzzah!  With the Prydian part of the 28mm Ion Age Range now completely updated we are moving onto the Shia Khan Empire.  While this part of the range is rather smaller than the other it will still take some time.  Today we begin with the largest of the Khanate soldiers the Warlords and also their heavier armoured Legionaries the Pioneers.

On the website you can browse the range page by page or look to the 'filter by' option above the first line of products.  Click on it and select what interests you. In this case 'Warlord' or 'Pioneer' or 'Value Pack' or 'Shia Khan' to narrow the shown codes.

IB36 Khanate Warlords (Value Pack)

IA136 Warlord with Mars 20mm Chain Cannon

IA137 Warlord with Juno 18Kw Laser Cannon

It was the appearance of Warlords among the ranks of the Khanate that led to the development of the Duxis and other marks of Battlesuits. Battlesuits are fashioned to be giant humanoids to wage war against actual giant humanoids. A nightmare of giants who could lift a man from the ground and smash him to pieces with ease. The Warlords are flesh and blood but hulking creatures much like a Human in form though standing twice or more the height of a man. They are commonly referred to as ‘Ogres’ and are another Khanate slave race. Warlords are often under the command of Legionaries and are used as the infantry hammer to smash into tough areas for the Khanate. They carry the largest of infantry and support type weapons such as the Mars 20mm Chain Cannon. Not possessed of a great deal of intelligence they are, despite this, the most dangerous soldier yet encountered by the Prydian Army.

IB38 Legion Pioneers (Value Pack)

IA141 Legion Pioneer with Flora Grenade Gun

IA142 Legion Pioneer with Maia 9.6mm Mpi

IA143 Legion Pioneer with Flora Grenade Gun 

IA144 Legion Pioneer with Plutus Carbine

Shia Khan Legion Pioneers. The Pioneers are also Legionaries who wear the same reactive glimmer suit and carry the same weapons but they are marked out as superior by their additional armour. They wear the Virtus Plating nonpowered upper body armour across head, chest and shoulders. Given tasks of greater danger, they are often found in urban battlefields. They use the same formations to the platoon level as other Legionaries. Tougher than their regular counterparts.

Example new single miniature pictures.

As with previous overhaul updates the images are all new and you save on the value packs plus every miniature is now a single code too.  IB packs are made up of IA singles and save you 5% on their singles.

Next up are the worst of the worst...those Humans who turned against their own...the Betrayers.  More on them soon...

Thanks for Reading,
