Gentlemen,

We are furthering development of the Royal Empire and require assistance.

We have at the moment the Marcovian (Polish based) and Zho (Chinese based) Kingdoms, the Hellenic (Greek) Kingdom was absorbed by the rebellious Guild in the Exodus Wars - which leaves 10 slots remaining.

The Stygians (Eqyptian) are the next to be developed due to a prior arrangement with L4.

I'd quite like to see a load of gas masked conscripts in berets for the Angles (English) supported by Knightly chaps in powered armour for the assault infantry.

What do you guys want? The idea of an African kingdom deeply appeals but we have a whole world of history to explore and bring into the Sci-fi world.

The idea is that ultimately each Kingdom will have at minimum it's own Behemoth heads, and hopefully a few other custom widgets too.

Each Kingdom will have it's own range of conscripts, heavy weapons and guard (powered armour) infantry.

What I am looking for is the following:

Kingdom Name:
Kingdom Inspiration:
What do the conscripts look like?
What do the guards look like?
What is their unique unit?

EG:
Kingdom Name: Angles
Kingdom Inspiration: English
What do the conscripts look like? Gasmasks and Berets - officer with a cup of tea is essential.
What do the guards look like? Knightly, powered armour based around the hundred years war.
What is their unique unit? A rover for the land, light vehicle carrying a light slug gun OR transporting one stand.

If you come up with the idea first and get credited with it, then not only will you be awarded with your name on the website and newsletter but will get free samples of the whole range for the Kingdom.

Sounds good - any ideas on how to make the conscripts look different from the Zho ones? Or would you reuse them?

I'd have the peasants with visible hair with topknots?
And trailing headbands if detail permits?

I like the idea of a crazy dichotomy - low tech peasants, and high tech robots.

Perhaps the Japai humans built Robots, who immediately enslaved the humans, and now the Japai Robot overlord herds his human peasants into battle like semi-disposable cattle?

Or are all EW human factions supposed to be, y'know, human-led? :-)

They are all human lead - but I could easily see the nobles having Mecha guards as elites, where as the conscripts are the bulk of the Japai army.

The Nobles already have Behemoths, so the Robot / Mecha guards should be within their budget.

how about

Kingdom Name: Caer
Kingdom Inspiration: Highland scout/light infantry force with power-loader style clan leaders
What do the conscripts look like? cloaks and rifles, snipers and flamethrowers
What do the guards look like? aliens style power loaders with broadswords
What is their unique unit? elite scout/hunter squads

obviously this is based on my desire for miniatures suitable to make my Tanith epic list, so the elite and conscripts would follow that aesthetic, but i do kinda like the idea of a generally lower tech power armour that is larger and more exposed, but has a big honkin sword for carving dudes up. (unique behemoth bits? big honking sword!
