Zin Envoy - IMP06 Free Miniature for February 2014

IMP06 The Xin Envoy
"A diplomat sent from the mysterious and far away Xin Precinct to establish trade between the two realms, carrying a digi-chart of Xin space to present to Prydian officials. However this distinguished envoy is not entirely defenceless, hiding a high grade Xin-manufactured laser pistol in a shoulder holster under his opulent cloak. This miniature would make a good mission objective, or an interesting addition to an army's command section." - Sam Croes

It's a brand new month and more than that its the Chinese New Year too.  That means a new free monthly miniature and in the spirit of 2014 being the Year of the Horse its on that theme.  Above is a quote from Ion Age lead designer Sam Croes introducing the IMP06 Xin Envoy.

The Zin Envoy is the white metal 15mm miniature in the above image and until 1st March 2013 he is FREE in each and every order placed with us at the rate of one per order placed.  After that date he will be retired and replaced by the next free miniature and of course you earn reward points on all orders too.  We realise that some of you may wish to purchase the current free miniature to get multiples of it without placing a lot of orders so you can do just that.  Visit this page on the website for the miniature at a fair price.

There is a growing page on the Ion Age website where the current and all former IMP series free miniatures are shown so that you can see what came before.  Enjoy and go HERE.

Those IonFans who know the background of the Ion Age universe will be scratching your heads just now thinking 'Who are the Zin?'.  Well not a lot on it just now but it is my intention to add more factions to the Ion Age in the second half of this year and one of those is the Zin.  This is a little taste, the first miniature and its free.  Ark Ships from Earth came not only from Europe and North America in fact many were sent by Asian powers to a star cluster relatively near what would become the Prydian Precinct.  After the detonation of the Aldan Crucible that created the Dolo Clouds these stars were cut off and devastated by not only the disaster created by the fanatical Templars but also the trapped remnants of a Khanate Dragon Fleet.

    1. Thanks Zac. It is a lovely and very different miniature. There will be more information on The Zin after Salute season is over. It is a new race, its a new force. When they come those with this miniature will be happy they got in early I think.
