Something Wicked This Way Comes

 Ion Age Spooks
15 mm


I don't often pull together seasonal pieces in time, but here are two kooky and spooky figures from The Ion Age. Both were monthly freebies, from 2013 (Skeleton) and 2014 (Witch).  I replaced the Skeleton's head with a slightly better 15 mm skull from Alternative Armies, and added a festive jack-o-lantern (not hard to sculpt, as it turns out!) and another skull to give the Witch's base some flair.

Happy Halloween!

The Great Khanate

Shia Khan commander and troopers
15 mm

What's the price of a mile?



Grinding through the churning mud and choking fumes of the future battlefield, the Shia Khan face their enemies with blistering firepower and relentless mechanized advance.  With the help of clever tactics and a willingness to sacrifice, their seemingly crude weapons and vehicles can hold their own against sleeker foes...


I originally intended to do an orange/black version of the studio paint job on these Shia Khan from The Ion Age.  But then I had a look at their little gas masks, and so now they're my grimdark "World War I in space" faction... with no apologies to the Death Korps of Krieg etc.

"I have a plan, sir."
"Really, Baldrick? A cunning and subtle one?"
