IMP39 Grim Reaperbot free for all November 2016!

Welcome to the spooky month at The Ion Age and this is also the month of...shudder...scream...Black Friday Weekend...so it is an epic month to get with us in 15mm space opera wargaming.  November is here and that means a new free monthly special miniature.  Ladies and Ghouls I present to you the Grim Reaperbot!

“Happy Burger does not often put a foot wrong when it comes to marketing their food.  Well, there was that incident with the rocket powered skates on the drive through dinastations but that was a...fairly...isolated incident.  However they did put both feet and indeed their legs in the wrong place with the Grim Reaperbot campaign.  It was a nice idea.  I mean who does not love having a custom bot cut the top from a promotional Happy Burger meat tube held by the customer with the chance to win a prize in the process.  Sadly the titanium scythes the Reaperbots were fitted with were a bit long for the job and often they overshot the tube held up by the customer.  More than fifty thousand dead in one morning across the Precinct.  So many lawsuits and then quickly hiding the bots. After the Gurtan Activation the bots were taken out of mothball and scrapped but some were never put in storage and had simply wandered off into the cities.  Shame...it was a real tasty meat tube that year.”

Each November we release a spooky themed monthly miniature and now the thirty ninth month sees IMP39 Grim Reaperbot come to the series.  It is our forth November monthly and is a 15mm white metal miniature which is free in every order every time all month before being retired. This miniature is automatically put into every order at the rate of one per order regardless of order value. It can also be bought in any amount on the monthly IMP page of the website for this month only too before being withdrawn on the first of next month. We are into Year Four now and if you missed it you can see the Year Three Collection on the website. 

This month's miniature is a superb character robot by Sam Croes.  Standing 16mm to the eye line it is a titanium skeleton with cloak and scythe. 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 looking at what came before. Above you can see the now online IMPS02 Spooky Set which has all four Halloween themed miniatures in one code.

We ask you to sign up for a website account with us on your first order. Why? For one reason only. Not to send you emails (we never will. If you want our emails sign up for our Mailchimp list on the right top of the blog home page) or to pester you; but only to keep track of the Reward Points that all orders with us earn. Reward Points through our online partner Sloyalty which can be used once accumulated to get discounts or free stuff at any point in the future. Learn more about this HERE. Every order earns Reward Points! Yes free extra value. Part of our promise to keep the fun in wargaming. 

Information Burst! 
This is our first burst for the month and here are the facts to joy you up!  November 2016 will see a great new release with the final code from the Patrol Angis army lists the Retained Grav Bike pack! We will also have a brand new artwork poster which gives you the 'Robo Cola' campaign from Happy Burger!  We will also have an article with a fright theme about a Prydian Precinct faction plus the last Friday of November will see us join up with Alternative Armies and 15mm.co.uk to make our four day Black Friday offer.  This is a super offer and we will tell all one week before it goes live.   Lastly we have a new monthly special...this time on our great Duxis Battlesuit favoured by Retained Knights.  25% off all variants of this modular battlesuit including five different ranged weapons and three melee versions.  The offer is now live and you can read more about the Duxis on our blog HERE

As always if you are reading this bulletin later in the month or further into the future please do have a look at our blog and use it as a time machine to read all the excellent content that is there going right back to our start. Try way back  in November 2013 for instance! 

Thanks for your support and for enjoying The Ion Age! 



  1. The Halloween group is slowly growing and is looking really good, I'm really digging the Witch in the group.

    1. Thanks. Yes. We have a Happy Burger group and now a Spooky Group and each will grow. The Witch Knight is a lovely figure.
