Mortis ex Machina the Metaborg Proauctor by Aris Kolehmainen

From the era of the Ban of Prejudice and before that the long vanished Resource Wars it is my delight to present a historical document for use with Patrol Angis.  A Khanate terror machine used in ancient times which has appeared once more in the Second Khanate War in 4330 IC.  Written by Aris Kolehmainen this article gives introduction and rules for the Metaborg which you can get HERE on the website and stands 60mm tall (HOF16 and HOF17).  Pictured with the 15mm scale Psycoborg to the left and a Warlord to the right and in front 15mm scale Legionary and Pioneer (16mm tall) from the author's own Medusa Legion.  Enjoy!  GBS


Mortis ex Machina
the Metaborg Proauctor

With the honor and glory of the spearhead of the invasion having been granted to the Styx Legion, other legions were charged with establishing a forward base in the ruins of Camarthen IV. It would be the Medusa Legion that first discovered the long hibernating Metaborg Proauctors, having been charged to seek out any resources that might still be useful to the Shia Khan. Pertinax crews got to work, quickly waking the ancient AIs form their millennial slumber to reestablish themselves to their role as lords of death and terror on the battlefield. While many of these AI had become corrupted or had simply ceased to function, many were able to be awoken and distributed among the Legions by the time of the Prydian counter attack. 

The Proauctors proved to be more fragile than their current counterparts, however, they made up for that fragility with long forgotten experimental technology known as “Drivers”. Drivers are, at their most base level, AI enhancers. They allow the Metaborg to make tactical decisions much faster and more efficiently than even the current Metaborg variants, however, these come with frustrating drawbacks. On the battlefield, Perfects often complain that the Proactors will move out of position or overload their weapons when they are not instructed to do so, sometimes resulting in the loss of battlefield assets. Off the field, many whisper about what the enhancements to the AI might have done, especially over such a long period of time. 

Rumors have begun amongst the Maligs, that some of their ilk have gone missing when hanging around the repair cradles of the Proauctors. Though laughed at by Legionnaires and Pioneers as the deranged thoughts of weaker minds, they were also apt to notice that the Beotan make a warding gesture in the presence of a Proauctor, and that Pertinax crews never seem to work on one in groups less than three. They, themselves, often find they are walking a little quicker around a resting Proauctor, and the feeling of being watched by its gigantic, eyeless visage isn’t spoken of, but felt by all…


Metaborg Proauctor - Dysforia Variant

Weapons:  Triple Jupiter Plasma 46mm Mount (U), Banshee 120Kw Atomic Destabiliser (U)
Movement Rate:  22cm
Armour Type (Rating): Ganus Segmentum Plating (4)
Properties: No Crew Robot, Walker, Chameleon circuit, Ablative Shell, Humascare, Krakos Mk.I
DMR: 10
Points:  923

Metaborg Proauctor - Nekros Variant

Weapons:   Hydra 14mw Laser Swarm Cannon (U), Metaborg Impact Gauntlet
Movement Rate: 22cm
Armour Type (Rating): Ganus Segmentum Plating (4)
Properties: No Crew Robot, Walker, Chameleon circuit, Ablative Shell, Humascare, Telos Mk.I (a)
DMR: 10
Points: 764


Special Rules:

Krakos Mk.I Energy Overkill Driver
The weapons of the Proauctor Dysforia are enhanced by a complex and once experimental power boosting system. When the Dysforia AI finds it appropriate, it can over charge its energy weapons, enabling it to utilize a much more powerful attack. However, these systems were not designed to handle such raw power, and the weapons must spend time in a period of “cool down” to prevent the weapon itself from melting.

When you attack, any roll of 8 grants that hit +4 strength. However, this forces the system to go into “cool down” mode at the end of combat. One activation must be spent to bring the weapon back online before it can fire again.

Note: If both of the weapons are in cool down mode, you need to use one activation for EACH weapon to use it again. You CAN choose to only reactivate one weapon and leave the other shut down if you wish, but you MUST spend an activation to bring it back online.


Telos Mk.I (a) Reaper Collateral Driver
The Proauctor Nekros are enhanced with a special AI driver that reviews target data from three independent drivers before cycling though to the decision cortex of the Nekros AI. The result of this is that the Nekros tends to spread it’s damage much more efficiently, at the cost of sometimes moving itself out of position to ensure the kill.

The Telos Mk.I (a) adds +1 to the Nekros AOE and Impact Gauntlet hits, however sometimes the driver compels the Metaborg out of position to attain a better shot, or to move into close combat. After you declare your intent to fire a weapon, roll a D8. On an 8, the Nekros moves 11cm in a direct line towards the closest enemy unit, (taking into account difficult and impassible terrain as if it had made a regular movement action). If this brings it into base contact with that unit, it is considered to have changed and may initiate close combat as per normal.



Relic of the Past

Metaborg Proauctors are ancient in the extreme, and while expressly deadly, are also prone to failure due to their age and rushed repair.  If a Proauctor takes 6 damage or more in a single round of combat (ranged or close combat), roll a D8. On an 8, there is a critical system failure and the Metaborg goes completely offline. Treat this unit as destroyed.

Marcher Barons, Nobles and Diodine Sparrow 15mm packs released

It is my great delight to make the official release announcement for our April 2018 new codes here at The Ion Age.  We are still in the March to War event (until 16th April and see details HERE of free shipping and free miniatures) and now you can see these nine new 15mm awesome sculpts by Sam Croes.  Go HERE or read on for more.


The Council of Addans and Marcher Barons
The worlds and systems of the Prydian Precinct were organised into a loose alliance overseen by the Council of Addans, all with the desire for peace and prosperity at the end of the thousand years of dark times. In the year 4001 IC in the star system of New Glastonbury, the council was established. It was here that the Ancep Drive was developed, and this helped make it a natural choice, but New Glastonbury prime is also the place where the Tor is located. The Tor is a huge artificial satellite or moonlet that hangs above the planet, a place of truly ancient age and fashioned not by the hand of man. New Glastonbury and the Tor are the focal point of the Prydian Precinct.

For more than two centuries the Addans oversaw the pacification and then flourishing of the fifty nearest star systems, leaving the outer reaches much to their own devices. Members of the Council of Addans are always Marcher Barons whose local power in the ownership of planets or moons gives them great say in the massive council chamber located on the Tor. Matters which affected the whole Precinct are the remit of the Addans, such as trade and the building of starships, while matters within the domain of each Marcher Baron on the council is their own concern. In times of war, the Barons contributed their own troops to the cause under the leadership of a Knight General appointed by the Addans. At the top of the structure is the throne for the Prydian Precinct it has a royal family and always a king or queen upon that throne with whom ultimate authority resides.

A delicate arrangement of balances which became unspun with the death of King Cyon leading to the Prydian Civil War. Now Princess Daphne Cyon now leads the Prydian Army against the Leagues of Yordan and Canlaster and other rebelling Marcher Barons. A delicate balance of power based on the Throne and the Marcher Barons has unravelled leading to a Civil War.
Taken from IAB01 Patrol Angis – What is The Ion Age?

As you can see from the extract taken from Patrol Angis the notion of nobility is central to life in the Prydian Precinct.  To be in the Retained a small degree of nobility is needed (if differs from world to world) such as by birth or by extended family or noble deed or the ownership of property or significant assets.  Those without join the Muster and hope to advance into the Retained.  Above the typical Retained are the Nobles themselves ranging from the lowest who commands only a few knights to those who lead lances and then entire regiments.  Those at the apex are the Marcher Barons who oversee whole Condot companies, nations and even planets.  There are several thousand Marcher Barons and they wield colossal power.  Now you can add such nobles to your Prydian Army or League or Condot collections.


IAF156 Marcher Barons of Prydia
This pack contains three different 15mm very high ranking nobles of the Precinct ideal to command your forces in war all wearing elaborate Alwite powered armour decorated with seals and badges of livery.  A Marcher Baron aiming a Carnwennan Pistol with plumed helm.  A Marcher Baron with Octa Powered Sword raised and weapon slung.  A Marcher Baron firing Carnwennan Pistol and plumed helm.  Ideal for characters in the Prydian Army or any other force which uses Retained Knights such as the League of Yordan or League of Canlaster. Just choose your uniform.  You have the option of purchasing a pack or three packs saving 10% or single poses from the pack for your collection.  Price 3.00GBP per pack. Go HERE.


IAF157 Nobles of Prydia
This pack contains three different 15mm nobles of the Precinct ideal to command your lances all wearing elaborate Alwite powered armour and carrying a mix of energy melee weapons and Carnwennan Pistol.  A Noble leaning forward with decorate helm and Carnwennan Pistol.  A Noble preparing Carnwennan Pistol.  A Noble running with Carnwennan Pistol and plumed helm.  Ideal for characters in the Prydian Army or any other force which uses Retained Knights such as the League of Yordan or League of Canlaster.

Go HERE.


PIA003 Uniforms of the Prydian Precinct
If you want to learn more about the largest military forces in the Prydian Precinct then you need Uniforms of the Prydian Precinct which shows you the top thirty armies, baronies and mercenaries who field Retained Knights led by Nobles.  Their uniforms for Retained, Desteria and Muster.  See it HERE and you can get it either as a lovely A3 print on high quality paper for your wall or now as a paid digital download in hi-rez A3 format at just 2.00GBP.  Created by Aris Kolehmainen.


PIA007 Prydian Precinct Star Map
A thousand years before the outbreak of the civil war that would pull Prydian space apart the last Khanate war forced the detonation of a universal potent bomb. This bomb called the 'Aldan Crucible' ended the Shia Khan incursion in this part of the galaxy by destroying not only their Matter Gateway but also the entire Aldan stellar system. In the dark centuries that followed the detonation savage and exotic Dolorous Clouds formed across Prydian space which hid entire star systems and made travel in or near them very dangerous indeed. This star map shows more than one hundred stellar systems as spoken of in our titles as well as the regions held by the League of Canlaster and the League of Yordan in the pivotal year of 4330 IC. Great for your wall and for planning your campaigns in The Ion Age. By our lead designer Sam Croes this is an A3 poster print. You can purchase one poster print at a great price or three of the same one and automatically save 10% on screen. You can also get the poster print signed by the artist.

Celesta Lament an umpire driven Patrol Angis scenario by Vic Dobson

It is my delight to present a Patrol Angis scenario for free download written by Vic Dobson.  It is called Celesta Lament and it is rather unusual as it is our first published umpire driven scenario featuring a Prydian Player and a Khanate Player alongside a third to oversee.  The free PDF is hosted on our website and in its pages it is split into three parts and each of the players should only look at their own relevant part to keep the adventure fresh.  


Celesta Lament
In this Ion Age scenario, a Prydian Noble, newly arrived on Camarthen Prime, is assigned to command a powerful force of Prydian Precinct troops who are preparing to conduct a rearguard action against the overwhelming might of the invading Khanate Empire. But such is the state of chaos and dislocation in the Prydian headquarters that things are not as they seem, and so even as the our heroic Noble travels to his new command, at the front line the situation has already begun to disintegrate…

You will need all three of the Patrol Angis books in order to play this tense scenario.  Click HERE to download the five page PDF.  Well done Vic!


Get yourself some Mullo Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFV) or Mullo Armoured Personnel Carriers (AFV) the medium vehicle between the Adder and the mighty Taranis.  Designed by Sam Croes these vehicles come in wheeled or tracked or repulsar (anti-gravity) variants with the choice of single or buy three save 10% plus an Early Supporter on until the 23rd March.  See them HERE.  Read the full article about the Mullo on our blog HERE.


All this month we have a 25% off normal price offer for you.  It is a mecha good offer on the IAF128 Afara Strider on all three variants of this light class war walker.  Easy to assemble with a degree of pose of its resin parts the Afara stands 55mm tall when built.  See it HERE.  Rules for the Afara are in Callsign Taranis the expansion to Patrol Angis. Offer ends 1st April 2018.


Lastly our stock of printed copies of IAB01 Patrol Angis are sold out!  We thank you and we have ordered up a new print run which we hope to have in next week so until that time the game pack and book and bundle are not online.  Go to our 15mm Publications page to see all of the Patrol Angis series books in print and as digital downloads as well as free resources.

Thanks for Reading,

Mullo AFV and APC Tracked, Wheeled and AntiGrav 15mm vehicles released

The big release for March 2018 is now online at The Ion Age!  Six different variants of the 15mm Mullo with wheels, tracks and repulsar (anti-gravity) propulsions as Armoured Fighting Vehicle (AFV) and Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC).  Easy to assemble and on average 45mm wide, 80mm long and 30mm tall with resin and white metal parts.  Go HERE for them.  Thanks for your support and read on for more information  plus a free download with the rules for these vehicles in Patrol Angis. Awesome!



“The Prydian Civil War saw the production of the Type 36 Mullo Armoured Fighting Vehicle increase six fold.  Though Retained regiments had made use of them since the Battle of Fenway Prime, the design of the Mullo was entirely new unlike those of the Skylark and Adder which dated from before the Ban of Prejudice.  Its original fabrication pattern was laid down on New Glastonbury to fill a need for a ground vehicle that could provide fire power in excess of that offered by battlesuits such as the Havelock but not that needed by a battle tank like the Taranis series.  Restricted to the ranks of the Retained, the Type 36 was made to accommodate powered armoured knights with larger hatches and linked controls along with internal space suited to knights.  As it stood Adders were cheaper and faster to make and could pack a punch but their size meant they were really the domain of the Muster and some lucky Planetary Militia.  The Type 36 was given its name by the Council of Addans who with a node to the mighty Taranis took another ancient Terrain deity of celtic origins and knowing it would be a work horse of a vehicle gave it a name thus.

This auto-trainer vid is centred on the Type 36W Mullo AFV marks.  Those with a wheeled mode of movement rather than the other commonly seen Type 36G repulsar marks of the Mullo which float off the ground.  Used on worlds and asteroids where the native magnetic fields make replusars impracticable or in urban combat where rubble and enemy action requires tires on the turf for security.  In this regard its six mighty wheels provide powerful motive abilities and are capable of shrugging off small arms fire and near misses from Anvil 888 rounds.  There are seven different current marks of Type 36W Mullo AFV's.  The more common ones are the 36WA, 36WB and 36WC in which the only differences are the twin load outs of the turret support grade weapons.  Twin Valerin 15MW Laser Cannons give the Type 36WA an energy based weapons platform good against armour and aircraft.  The twin Fretan  II Rail Guns give the Type 36WB a pure anti-vehicle role in the field and the Type 36WC is every effective against enemy infantry and battlesuits with twin Angis 25mm AP Cannons.  The other common mark is the Type 36D which is in the 'battle bus' configuration giving up its primary weapons for additional space and hatches as an Armoured Personnel Carrier.  Other marks include those designated 'super blue' which is a tank hunter and the 'long bow' mark which carries heavy Anda Missile Pods for artillery support.  These are rarer but present in many regiments.  

All marks of Mullo AFV's have a titanium composite hull making them rugged and durable and can be driven with a minimum of complex training. There has been a call for additional anti-personnel ball mounted micro turrets for Mullo's in action in urban warfare and these upgrades have been rolled out where possible.”
Academy Auto-Trainer Series 18, New Glastonbury, 4329 IC


The Mullo is the medium size of vehicle in our range in 15mm scale which is ideal for Retained Knights, Muster and Planetary Militia. Bigger than the Adder series of Combat Cars and smaller than the Taranis Main Battle Tank this is the wheeled AFV variant of the model. There are six different Mullo kits.  Three medium fighting vehicles and three medium personnel carriers.  Here are their details and on the page for each there are more images including scale and parts.  You can purchase one or three with a saving.


IAF042A Mullo AFV Wheeled
A Mullo is an Armoured Fighting Vehicle meaning that it fills a variety of roles from gunnery support to troop transport and strong point defence; tasks it is well suited to. Once assembled the Mullo AFV wheeled measures some 80mm in length with a width of 60mm and a height to top of turret of 30mm. It is easy to assemble with a one piece hull and pre-set bracketing points for the six wheels to be mounted. The Angis 12.5mm AP weapon on ball mount can be attached to the front of the hull or left off if chosen.  The pintle mounted Angis 22mm AP Rifle is white metal and can be left off or put on. The main turret is one piece with two mounting points for a pair of support grade weapons.  Supplied with three choices for the turret: Twin Valerin 15Mw Laser Cannons, Twin Angis 25mm AP Cannons and Twin Fretan Rail Guns.  Go HERE.  10.00GBP

IAF042B Mullo AFV Tracked

Lastly a note upon the nature of the new Mullo 2.0.  Those of you who have been with The Ion Age since 2014 and been playing Patrol Angis may well have a wheeled Mullo in your collection.  This is now the Mark One and is gone and out of production permanently so if you have it you are fortunate and have a piece of history on your table which is still perfectly useful in play.  The re-design of the Mullo for this Mark Two set of six variants was needed in order to give other means of propulsion and once we had done that we thought a new turret would suit better and then we wanted to give you all the weapon options included plus a pintle mount..so here we are.  At once the same and not the same.  The Mullo...workhorse of the Prydian Precinct.
