Royal Imperium (NEW UNITS ADDED 7/31)

Post by gaunt » Tue Jul 12, 2016 5:10 pm

The main enemies of the Sarmatians, the Royal Imperium is a powerful but declining galactic empire. Heavily influenced by feudal knights, they field some heavily armored troops.

NEW OVERWATCH (7/17):
Image

The ground forces are led by infantry generals (no names for them yet). They wield swords and blaster pistols. Behind them is a vox-trooper, who relays communications.
Image
The mainstay of Imperial armies are Space Knights. They are equipped with advanced breathing systems, power armor, supply packs, and blaster carbines.

UPDATE 7/17: Got new swords for these guys. They are in two squads, one of 4 with a champion, another of 5 with a Hero (guy with mace).

Image

Image



Image

Basic infantry in the Imperium are known as men-at-arms. These troops are clad in heavy armor and blast helmets. They carry assault rifles or an MG as well as a shield.

Image

Beamsword Guards are utilized as base or palace guards in non-combat situations. They are equipped with kite shields for protection.
Image

Ok, now it's time for some vehicles. (Beware of shitty pics):

Assault helicopter- armed only with two missile racks so far.
Image

The back can open up and there is enough room for a stretcher to med-evac 1-2 troopers.

Image

Image

Here's a really mediocre fighter, not too happy with it but these guys needed air support:
Image
There's a gatling gun on the bottom and 2 cannons on each wing.

Hardsuit (looks better in person, I swear):

Image

Equipped with a big cannon, shoulder blasters and a chainsaw hand.

Image

(My hand makes an appearance after I fired the missile.)


NEW UNITS as of 7/16, here's an overwatch:

Image

Imperial Light Infantry, known as Auxilas:

Image

Equipped with blast-steel mail, pulse rifles (credit to someone on the forums for those) and the same helmets as men-at-arms. Here they are in action:

Image

A deadly close-combat force, the Chainsword Guards are melee shock troops.

Image

Bonus shot, showing that the assault helicopter can be accessed from the back, and that there is some room in there:

Image

Long live the Royal Imperium!

New shit (7/31):

Piston Armored Car

Image

In service of the Royal Foreign Militia forces, this archaic armored car is still put to good use. Armed with a short bore tank cannon and a heavy stubber (like a machine gun) this vehicle is used mostly in an infantry support role.

Image

The Royal Imperium prefers to relegate old and otherwise useless vehicles to the Foreign Militia, which are collectives of militia troops in service by colonial governments.

The odd design of the Piston lies in it's command turret at the back. The car commander sits in this raised section, and he is in charge of communications as well as firing the stubber. Here is an above view of the command section.

Image

The gunner and driver sit in the midsection.

Image

Here is the commander firing the stubber.

The Piston is also equipped with very sharp spikes on the front to gouge enemies. Here it is attacking a group of Iron Ashigaru (a mini-faction I have made):

Image


Bonus:

Mk 86 Field Gun

Image

An old but serviceable design, this field gun is used by the Foreign Militia regiments.

Here it is in use:

Loving the new units, cool car.


I am also very interested in that mini faction, they look very cool.

Keep this up, your making some really good quality stuff.

Here are some pics of the Foreign Militia platoon:

Image

Image

The platoon consists of two 5-man squads, a colonial officer, a machine gun team and an artillery crew, as well as the armored car and its crew.

Image

One of the squads is led by a native tracker, who acts as a scout and sniper for the unit:
Image




And as requested, here are the Iron Ashigaru:

Image

They are very small and currently made up of 4 troops and 3 heroes.

Here are just the troops:

I love the concept and execution for the militia and I like the sound of "Iron Ashigaru" You should give the Ashigaru Jingasa helmets!Image
