The Skion

The Skion, named after the planet from which they hail, spent the majority of their history living in a utopian society. They built great structures high into the air on their home planet and its twin moons, Eelia and Eylea. They eradicated war, strife, and disease. They built and they built, their booming population living comfortably in mega structures. They mastered magic and science and quietly closed off their armouries and repurposed their factories.

The Great Peace lasted until the Enemy came.

In great hives of living, throbbing masses, monsters of hate and horror landed on Skion. They tore into the populace with teeth and tusk, blood running thick in the streets of a utopia that had forgotten how to fight.

As the screams echoed in the dark, the Skion remembered how to make war.

The armouries were broken open and the factories restarted. The Skion waged total war on their brooding foe until, at last, the Enemy broke and died in a hail of gunfire and flame.

Now the Skion remember their bloodlust and look to the stars, blood and thunder in their eyes as they launch their newly built warships into the sky.

Infantry
Image
Image

The backbone of the Skion war machine is their infantry. Equipment varies wildly from soldier to soldier. Preference is honored over all.

Heavy Weapon Support
Image

The infantry is supported by both energy and projectile based heavy weapons.

Officers
Image

Officers help hold the line. Like the soldiers they command, equipment is unique to each officer.

Medics
Image

Medics provide healing and medical services on the battlefield. They carry shotguns for times when they must end lives before they can save any.

Heavy Troopers
Image

Heavy Troopers carry special weapons too devastating for a soldier without special training, including the coveted repeating rocket launcher.

Eagles
Image
Image
Image

"Eagle" Sniper squads sing death from afar. Special chassis on the shooter's armour takes the weight of the large weapon allowing it to be used more effectively.

Image

War Mages use their all encompassing knowledge of strange magiks to change the very fabric of the battlefield. They carry energy weapons of their own design.

Devastator Strike Troopers: Into Their Teeth with Bloody Fists
Image
Image
Image

Devastators are masters of melee combat. They revel in the cleaving of axe against flesh. They're armour is slow and heavy so they fly into the foe with short-range jump packs.

Tactical Squads

Gray Wolves: To Bite and Break
Image
Image
Image

Wolf squads carry shotguns and melee weapons. Their support carries armour piercing rounds. Wolf officers mount bayonets on their shotguns. They fight the enemy in close quarters environments like trenches and suburbs.

Orange Phoenix: Flame and Fire Make All Things New
Image
Image
Image

Sometimes one support unit is not enough. Phoenix troopers go into battle with a flamethrower and incendiary rockets. The officer has a shotgun mounted underneath her rifle.

Black Wyvern: Terror and Venom in the Night
Image
Image
Image

Stealth troopers shrouded in secrecy. Only their officers are entrusted with OTC weapons. Their support uses corrosive tipped explosives.

Heros

Skulna
Image

Skulna is the War Queen of Skion. She leads the Valkyrie into battle. Her wings are broad and her rage unending.

Valkyrie
Image

Valkyrie shred the skies as a close support unit for their Queen.

Eldon, Saw of the Army
Image
Image

Eldon was at one time a regular infantryman. In battle he rigged his own battle-staff and shredded the foe into legend. His armour he crafted from fallen Devastators. He carries a heavy laser weapon of his own devising as well.

His Serenity, Ruler of All Skion
Image
Image

The Ruler of Skion wields a devastating staff in battle. His armour is thicker and stronger than any other manufactured on Skion. He wields dual pistols when necessary, stored securely on his jump pack.

Mechanized Warfare

Engineers
Image

When a vehicle needs piloting or a weapon needs fixed, the engineers step into the light. Their work is dusty and dark.

Sentinels
Image
Image

Sentinels are guard platforms. They hold the line when little else can.

Champions: The Rock on Which the Enemy Breaks
Image
Image

Champions are combat platforms with endless uses. They bear rifles and power swords.

Fury Class Artillery
Image
Image

Skion artillery is built to be easy to maneuver but with a heavy punch. Fury Class weapons fire two primary rounds: super-high explosive rounds and a "grapeshot" round that drops it's payload progressively towards the target.

All Purpose Truck/Transport (APT/T)
Image
Image

If something needs to be carried from A to B, you can bet a engineer drove it there in an APT/T.

Thunder Templar Heavy Tank
Image
Image
Image
Image

The Thunder Templar is a veteran of a thousand fields in a hundred campaigns. It's armour is thick and weapons strong. One main cannon, four side guns, a flamethrower, and a coaxial machine gun. On the rear is mounted two magical countermeasure systems to prevent enemy ordinance from striking.

Crusader Mech: Lords of War
Image
Image
Image

When Champions cannot turn the tide, the Skion turn to the Crusader. A walking monstrosity of hatred and fire, it bears a battle-cannon, power sword, and missile pod launchers. Some pilots also mount a shield.

Image

The Skion march into the sky, eyes burning for war.

For being quite stormie/SW-heavy, these infantry designs are dope. Well done!
I also dig the goofy proportions of the Thunder Templar and the overloaded Crusader mech.

Thanks guys, been wanting to get these posted for a long time now and I'm glad you like what you see.

Thank goodness for the myriad of clones/stormtroopers that have been produced, too bad they're all so expensive.

The Thunder Templar is my best work, I think. I'm glad I stopped trying to build realistic tanks (that I have no talent or eye for) and just had fun with it.

This is great. The giant guns you gave everything look like they could take on a tank! Honestly, great job. :666: Continue with your Ossumness.
