King's Empire Image Previews

Recommended Posts

Edit: Wyrd has a much better organized viewing of all the renders at this link here:

10 units were introduced in The Other Side Allegiance Video. I like the infiltrator the most. Margaret Belle is neat but seems somewhat out of place in the army's aesthetic. Seems more fit in Arcanists. King's Empire remind me the most to the Guild aesthetic.

King's Hand (Titan)

I will say the infiltrators are the ones I like the least, too guildy in aesthetic for a force that's breaking away from them.  Love  Margaret Belle though and could get her irregardless of the faction I end up choosing.

I thought that "Belle" written in close proximity to "Bellerose" was just another cutesy name. I was wrong and I apologize. :) This is much more interesting!

Margaret Belle is awesome.

 

So is the King's Hand. I mean... t's not Tyrion Lannister, but I'll take it :D

 

Also finding the Infiltrators and Field Intelligence pieces interesting... wander what kind of special rules they might have about information gathering?

Looking at the pictures again, and noticing that the South Wales Borderers seem to be wearing some sort of powered exoskeleton. I know there are coal mines in Wales, could they be conscripted coal miners wearing their mining gear?

You almost have me, but the list needs some Scottish regulars with kilts and claymores done out as steampunk. THEN, this would be the coolest faction!

Judging from the card, Okoye seems to be dual-faction King and Abyss :o

 

Didn't know that that is a thing. But it is an awesome thing.

 

For the Scots, I'd prefer to have them throw logs that have explosives strapped to them :P

To be honest, I hope that is not the case. The South Wales Borderers were a regular infantry regiment, professionally trained and with a long and glorious history. If Wyrd want to make stuff up, that's fine, it's their world after all. If they are going to use actual historical figures and references, I hope they do so with respect to the men, women and organizations involved.

Working with the concept of the British Empire as a starting point, there are a lot of regiments, historical figures and themes for Wyrd to draw upon. Scots, Irish, Sikhs, Gurhkas and more served in the Empire, so Wyrd have no shortage of inspiration for the King's Empire forces.

Ah, my bad. I didn't think of them being based off a real-world military unit.

The british empire was very large and diverse, but wyrd may try to avoid all the unfortunate implications that came with the empire. Te negative effects are still felt today in many areas of the world, they were the original "west" in the modern world. And that sentiment has not really changed, just shifted targets from UK to USA. The only places that really look back somewhat nostalgically are Canada and Australia, and 1) those countries are now rules by whites, and 2) neither of those countries would ever wish to rejoin the empire. They are fine being part of the common wealth, but empire, no.

Of course it would kinda be cool seeing a large and diverse selection of units for the empire. Especially Canadians. I just reinforced my own point by accident didn't I...
