Hello!  Thanks for dropping by and visiting us here at The Ion Age.

The Ion Age is a brand of Alector Ltd which includes Alternative Armies and is dedicated to providing wargamers and hobbyists with a unique setting for all of their gaming experiences.  Since its creation in the early 1990's the Ion Age has supplied white metal miniatures to many thousands of customers all across the world.  This new vision of the Ion Age aims to continue and expand on all of Alternative Armies previous work.

It is our aim to bring you the highest quality white metal (28mm and 15mm scales) miniatures and resin vehicles and larger miniatures along with great print and electronic game systems and articles all set in our space opera wargame universe.

We are a part of a small and professional company based at Girvan, Ayrshire in Scotland and this is only one of several online presences we have and brands we operate.  Others can be found by searching for Alternative Armies and formally 15mm.co.uk.  We have been in this business for more than two decades and enjoy a great reputation in our market places.

There are a number of people in our team but the ones you will hear most about online and in emails and blog posts from The Ion Age are:
