Retained Knights of Castella by Sam Croes

It is my pleasure to present to you pictures of the Knights of Castella miniatures in the collection of Alternative Armies very own lead designer and painter Sam Croes.  These Retained Knights along with Noblesse and Knight Errant are taken from the 28mm Ion Age Miniature Range on the website and include a customised Moth Type 12 carrying Knight.
 
The images which follow can be clicked upon to make them much larger and there is a helpful note with each to tell you a little more if you are keen on the miniatures.

Four Retained. Codes from IB022 and IB020 packs.

Four Rapid Assaulter Knights.  Codes from IB020 and IB022.

 A customised Moth Type 12 Retained based on IA085 miniature.

 Currently not in production Moth Type 88 Twin Barrel Cannon with Muster Gunner

 A Retained Noblesse and a Knight Errant both excellent characters. Both from IB32 pack.

 The whole force assembled and ready to fight for Castella!
Castella is a Barony in the Prydian Precinct which will be featured in the fourth book of the Patrol Angis series currently titled ‘Baron’.  You can play Patrol Angis in 28mm rather than 15mm simply by changing centimeters to inches and it works just fine.  Of course MOTH is our 28mm skirmish system and you can try out Firefight 2.0.
There are several hundred 28mm scale miniatures on the website as well as hundreds of codes of miniatures, vehicles, mecha, buildings and more in 15mm scale.  You can see above the menu on the website which has these ranges.  Here are direct links:
28mm Ion Age Range
15mm Ion Age Range
15mm Ion Age Terrain
Ion Age Game Systems
Free Ion Age Downloads
During the transition of The Ion Age website back into Alternative Armies back in May of this year there was a blog article published which also dealt with Castella but that time in 15mm scale.  Above you can see Sam Croes custom built Magog mecha (80mm tall).  Go HERE to read that article.

HOT23 Sitting Dragon returns among the 15mm Monsters

Among our new releases in our ranges Alternative Armies is also constantly re-molding existing models and bringing in print runs of existing titles.  Typically we do not tell you all about this as it is ongoing.  But every now and again a code will also be re-mastered (meaning its design is tweaked or tightened for easier casting or production) and it gets a new paint scheme or other improvement.  These we like to share and we put an offer on them too passing the saving on to wargamers.  This time it is the preening HOT23 Sitting Dragon in the HOT 15mm Fantasy range.
HOT23 Sitting Dragon
“She sits, she broods…she is the mother to the scaled horde.  The sitting, preening Dragon. Fire and death are to come…” This code contains one metal monster.  A finely detailed Dragon great for use in any game system in an interesting pose.  Dragons live for millennia and this one plots and schemes. Three pieces and assembled stands 35mm tall at the head.  Go HERE.
Winter Mega Event 2019 is now on! 
Until 11th December you get Free Worldwide Shipping over 20GBP, 10% off entire order discount applied in cart, Sixteen new releases, Up to Half Price bundles and offers, a free Vampire in every order shipped out. Read the article in full on our BLOG. Thanks. 
We have several 15mm scale ranges which are fantasy or suitable for fantasy use.  See our website or click through for the Tabletop 15mm Fantasy, HOB 15mm Buildings, HOTT 24AP Armies, Sengoku Japanese Fantasy and Medus 15mm Medieval plus Altuos 15mm Renaissance range.  Have a browse.
One of the favourite packs we have is HOT35 The Giant Hydra is one of more than two dozen monsters in the range and it is among the largest of the miniatures in the HOT Range too.  It has been reduced in price since its re-mastering process.
