Correction: Sockeye Pike should be Walleye Pike, but I'm too lazy to open the PS file and fix it. The character is one of the background pirates from Muppet's Treasure Island. I love them Henson puppets. ^^

Anyways.

In the category of things not fanart, the six-limbed iguana monster is Nicholas, an OC of mine. Also, I'm always saying that Thomas is a cyborg despite the fact that he looks like normal guy wearing a headset, so I took some time to draw his robotic body, and failed, but there you go. Benjamin sleeps on his couch so he doesn't have to make his bed in the mornings, lazy bugger.

In the category of fanart: holy pirate spew. I was going to do a group picture with about a dozen of my favorite pirates, but winter break ends this weekend and, frankly, even if I had the time I've lost the steam, and so it probably won't get started again.

The Bazikstan-Drman war was an armed conflict between Bazikstan against Degoland and their allies of the JPM.

After the fall of the Tork Empire of Cretor, after the anglasecuarnian wars (first world war of Aiers, 3139-3155), the territories of the former empire where divided in several protectorades and independent nations under the area of influence of other nations.

Among them was Bazikstan: the land of the Baziks, originally a poor mountain and desert land, inhabited by the fierce bazik tribes of the Montaiqas, there the hostile tribes and poor nation made the Gastronomical Empire -who had Bazikstan under they area of influence- neglect it: and this was used by many former cretorian empire army officers of bazik ethnicity, who planned to rebuild the old empire, but as a Bazik nation: for this, they had to unify the tribes, modernize the armed forces... and to expulse of Bazikstan the foreign powers.

Between the 3157-3178, the baziks will fight a serie of wars against many enemies, with mostly adverse luck: the disorganized armies of Bazikstan, poorly equiped, poorly trained, with corrupt officers and low moral, where defeated one after other time. As well, they couldn't break the tribal organization of warriors, identified to their clans and families rather than bazikstan, and each general of Bazikstan, rather than member of the armed forces, was an independent warlord, who acted as a prince and used their soldiers as personal armies, often clashing between them in skirmishes, doing coup d'etat against the weak central government, or even making diplomacy on their own, doing alliances and wars without authorization of an inexistent central authority.

But in the later decade of the 70's, began a process of centralization of Bazikstan, with a reorganization of the bureaucracy and government, that will have consecuences in the economy of Bazikstan. As well, with the expansion of the education system, the concept of a nation of the baziks, Bazikstan, was spreading: and while most of the baziks will still consider themselves for long first as part of a clan or tribe, they began to think to themselves as well, as inhabitants of Bazikstan.

With this period of consolidation, in the 80's the Bazik government thought will be needed for further development of Bazikstan, a process of industrialization: And in the Degolandic protectorade of Shynnia, the degolandians had builded one of the largest industrial complex of Zarhuy in that time: the RDUC.

As a former territory of Cretor, Bazikstan had a claim over this province for long, but previously they had suffered military defeats against the degolendos.

However, due the recent Ignacian-Degolendian war, the Baziks used the conjucture to sign a new treaty with Degoland: Shynnia will become instead a protectorade of Bazikstan -rather than of Degoland-, as long the Baziks comprommised themselves to respect the economical interests of Degoland in Shynnia, the private property of degolendos citizen and the state of Degoland, and the monopoly of the RDUC.

The transfer of power was done in the 3281, but soon problems arised: As originally intented, soon the Baziks proclaimed the annexion of the Protectorade of Shynnia into Bazikstan. And only two months later, despise the protests of Degoland, the industries with foreign capitols in former Shynnia where nationalized -A legislation done with the RDUC heavy industries on sight-.

Still fighting the war against the Gastronomical Empire, Degoland only issued diplomatic notes and complains to Bazikstan. But they will not forget.

And soon after peace was signed with the Gastronomical Empire (IG), Degoland (DR) and their allies of Juanpableiro (JPM) will land their armed forces in former Shynnia, without a declaration of war: Instead, a ultimatum was send to the Bazik government: to abandone Shynnia in 48 hours, as the actions of Bazikstan (annexion of Shynnia and nationalization of the RDUC) had rendered the former treaties void.

The Baziks, rather than to accept the ultimatum, sended reinforces to their forces in former-Shynnia.

And so, will begin the Bazikstan-Drman war, that will last from 3182 to the 3187 a.a.H: five years of fierce war, which will end in the defeat of Degoland. Because of their defeat, Degoland will have to renounce not only to Shynnia, but as well other provinces they had in the former empire of Cretor.

For Bazikstan, winning this war will mean the incorporation of extense territories, and specially, to add the industrial might of the RDUC to their cause: And this industrial complex will be key to the military might and expansion of bazikstan in the decade of the 90's of the XXXII century.



Old drawing from the 2004 to the 2005, showing a Drman-JPM artillery possition in the desert of Shynnia about to be overruned by bazik armored forces.

the baziks are equiped there with tanks of the Ka-Boom serie. The orange uniform, that later will be recogniced as a trademark of the bazik armed forces of Bazikstan (and later, the RFB) where used for the first time in this war.

Battle of Sozhon, Kleineng War, 3128 a.a.H.

Battle of the fortified city of Sozhon, Klauseng, between the Red Banners of Klauseng, a modernized unit of the Klauseng New Army commanded by foreigner aelian officers hired by the Klauseng government, and a Kleineng invading army.

In Sozhon, fought a 600 strong Klauseng Red Banner regiment –along with some 200 to 300 irregulars- against a 12.000 strong army of the Kleining.

The aelian officers, hired by the government of Klauseng, rather than defend the walled city, trusting their artillery and firepower, tried to do an offensive movement and defeat the Kleineng before the walls of Sozhon, remembering maybe their own previous campaigns against the binese, where small, modernized colonial aelian army units defeated larger binese armies with technological adventage, discipline and firepower.

While in the first skirmishes against the advanced units of the Kleineng where successful, this strategy will proof catastrophic to the Red Banner regiment, who where flanked by the Kleineng, forcing them to retreat, abandoning an artillery battery and much equipment: equipment that will be used by the Kleineng in the siege of Sozhon, city which fell in one night, as the aelian hired officers deserted it, soon followed by their men.





The Kleineng War was an armed conflict fought in Hieyoks at the 3128 a.a.H, between Kleineng against Klauseng, Robgorov, Joaquintopia, Bina and Jamon.

The state of Kleineng was founded only about a decade before the war, at the 3121 a.a.H, in continental Hieyoks, by members of the traditional feudal and military aristocracy of Jamon, who rejected the concessions given by the Emperor to Aelian powers in regard to the aperture of ports to foreign trade, presence of missionaries and other concessions given to foreigners since the 3108 a.a.H, that where seen as an insult to the honor of Jamon. As well, this feudal, traditional aristocratic and military class rejected the attempts of centralization of the Imperial dynasty at the archipelago, and the modernization in several points of their society that menaced their privileges –such as the modernization of the agrarian world and armed forces of Jamon.

The presence of Jamonese settlers in mainland Hieyoks wasn’t something new at all, and have existed since centuries settlements of Jamonese in several points, that while the Binese Empire was powerful, where considered vassals of that foreign power.

But with the decay of the Binese empire, due religious strife and foreign aelian powers, the chaotic opportunity was seen as an opportunity to the malcontent members of Jamon:

An at 3121 a.a.H, landed the armies of several feudal lords of Jamon on continental Hieyoks, in the region of Kleineng –a region mostly populated by Jamonese settlers and fishermen-, proclaiming the creation of an independent state of Kleineng, independent of both the Binese Empire and Jamon.

Quickly in this state, the malcontent feudal lords of Jamon replicated their traditional institutions, as this state was done precisely to keep safe their traditions, being seen by foreign Aelian press this new state as barbaric and ludite, as they rejected modernization in all aspects, wanting a revitalization of traditional values, moral and culture of Jamon, even if in other state.

Almost as soon Kleineng became an independent state, there where problems: the imperialist Aelian powers saw their own plans for Kleineng to be abruptly cut down by these independent feudal lords, and they demanded both to Bina and Jamon to put an end to this new state: but Bina, divided in civil war, couldn’t send their imperial armies, and neither Jamon was in the moment capable of sending their own forces across the sea, as their fleet was in process of reconstruction.

The war that was brewing, will finally explode at the 3128 a.a.H, when the aristocracy of Kleineng wanted to expand their sphere of influence beyond this small state on the shores of northern Bina, but beyond, aiming to Klauseng.

Klauseng, an historic small vassal of the Binese Empire, was granted independence by the Binese Empire only due the pressure of colonial Aelian powers –in this case, specifically, from Joaquintopia-, who using the nationalist desire of the Klausen minority, created a Joaquintopian protectorate with a puppet Klauseng government.

Kleineng, with a larger army, invaded their southern neighbor at the 3128 a.a.H, which will be the sparkle that will begin the Kleineng War.
While the small Klauseng army, partially modernized and with aelian military advisors, tried to resist the Kleineng armies, they where soon defeated and all Klauseng, occupied.

Being a protectorate of Joaquintopia, immediately Joaquintopia declared war to Kleineng, and their diplomats in Bina and Jamon ordered them to do the same –Bina, as Kleineng was formerly a province of Bina, seen then as a rebel province of the Empire, and Jamon, as the Kleineng warlords where subjects of the Jamonese crown.-

The declaration of war of Jamon to Kleineng, triggered the rebellion in the same Jamonese archipielago, where more of the members of the traditional aristocracy remained, often related with the warlords of Kleining, being then a spark of civil war. As well, as Joaquintopia, a mighty aelian colonial power, was the most dangerous of the enemies of Kleineng, they where on the other side of the world, and they only had some small colonial garrisons near: garrisons that where insufficient to launch an offensive: and the Binese Empire armies, fighting their own civil war, only could send minor forces against the Kleineng:

And so, Kleineng keep for a time the initiative, advancing over Bina, and with rebels in Jamon who claimed their allegiance to Kleineng. While the Joaquintopian gunboats where able to control the seas and rivers, the colonial garrisons they gathered only where enough to be send to defend bina –or specifically, the Joaquintopian interests in Bina-.

And while in Joaquintopia –in Aels- King Joachim prepared an armed expedition against Kleineng, the northern neighbor of Kleineng entered in the war: the Principality of Robgorov –an independent principalty founded by trutsian traders at the 2845 a.a.H, with close relations to the Trutsian Empire-.

Direct neighbors of Kleineng, the Robgorov advanced over Kleineng: and while there was a bloody campaign, the Robgorov –supported by Trutsia- finally defeated the Kleineng warlords at the 3129 a.a.H –meanwhile in Jamon, the rebels where defeated by the modernized Jamonese army.-

Robgorov didn’t stopped at Kleineng, but they occupied as well Klauseng, and soon almost a new war began, this time between the Trutsian Empire –supporting Robgorov- and the Empire of Joaquintopia –who protested for the independence of their protectorade-.

To avoid a conflict between to main Aelian powers –and the sparkle of that great war between the colonial powers of Aels, that was since some time looming in the horizon- finally there was a peace treaty: Klauseng returned to the Binese Empire as a province of Bina –with the Joaquintopian economic interests intact-, and Kleineng was annexed by the Principalty of Robgorov.

In such way, Kleineng disappeared as an independent state at the 3130 a.a.H. However, this will be only the beginning of more tensions late for this province with an ethnically mayority of Jamonese population, claimed by Jamon, Bina and the Trutsian Empire –using their vassal, Robgorov-.

Sovodoroy Battle, Kleineng War, 3129 a.a.H.

The Battle of Sovodoroy, fought at the 3129 a.a.H, was one of the opening moves of the final campaign of the Kleineng War.

While in the south, the advance over northern Bina was stopped at the Yuatse river, in Jamon the rebellion of the traditional military class –as well allied with the Kleineng warlords, if not often direct familiars- was as well meeting defeat, the Principalty of Robgorov entering in the war in the north, meant a new front for the Kleineng.

Robgorov was a trutsian principalty, vassal of the Trutsian empire, having been founded around a trading city in east Hieyoks at the 2845 a.a.H: and while the Trutsian Empire remained neutral in the Kleineng War –to avoid tensions for zones of influence with other Aelian powers- they supported their vassal.

The Principalty of Robgorov raised a 22.000 strong army, and as they declared the war to Kleineng, as they marched to the south, to the territories controlled by the Kleineng warlords. However, due several problems of organization and logistics, the advance of the Robgorovian army was very slow.

For this campaign, the Kleineng gathered their forces in continental Hieyoks –around some 60.000 men-, and quickly marched to the north, to Robgorov, to avoid to fight in their own territory.

Finally both armies will meet in the plains of Sovodoroy, and will begin a battle that will last for seven days, being very bloody: finally, the Kleineng will be forced to retreat, with the Robgorov army slowly following them.

Several other battles will be fought between Kleineng and Robgorov, being the Robgorovian advance rather slow as they laid siege to each walled city, being one of the reasons why the war ended sooner, the rebellion of the ethnic binese population of Kleineng against the jamonese ruling minority.

Defeated on all fronts, Kleineng will be defeated at the 3130 a.a.H and will disappear as an independent state for more than a century.

Levente gave me an "assignment"; a speed concept with three guide lines 1) a high speed car chase, 2)cloudy 3) extreme angle. While it didn't turn out the way I wanted it was a good practice and I learned that using 3d as a plate can be quite useful. 3,5h, made in school

I wanted to design a relatively light mecha type vehicle that was thin and agile, armed with weapons that would allow it to effectively fight infantry, light vehicles, other mecha of around its size, and low atltitude VTOL craft.

The pilot rides in a detachable armored pod that is attached to the back.

The right pod has an armored missle launcher holding 3 missles ready and 12 more in reserve. The launcher is able to fire multiple types of missles depending on what it was loaded with prior to deployment

on the nose pod is a 25mm vulcan cannon and a drum of 2600 caseless rounds. In case of a fall or collision, the nose pod and some of the more sensitive sensor gear will retract, sliding backwards under the protuding fusilage.

on the left pod is an 85mm autocannon with 120 rounds

The long spindly arms are normally kept folded at the sides when not in combat. Their main use is prop up the rest of the mech in case of a fall, to prevent a fall, to pick up important objects, or for heavy lifting.

The legs are a unique in that they have two modes of operation. The midlegs can be locked under the thighs for a shorter profile and more stability at the cost of speed (as is evident in the picture) or they can be unfolded for greater agility and speed, but creating a taller target and causing less stability.

The entire setup is controlled by a mixture of artificial intelligences, pilot neural impulses, and manual controls.

another redesign from the logan's run project. Since the movie is called logan's run i of course had to redesign logan. In this case i gave him a more yellow/orangish suit color pattern to go better with the fact that within the movie's setting he is called a sandman. I gave him some more armor, a different face, and some "tacticool" gear.

The largest wingspan of any creature in our world. This particular specimen is about 200-300 years old, as it takes an incredible length of time for one to grow this big. There are only around 5 that are this size. The largest one ever known was said to destroy cities with a single wing beat.

This is a concept for what falx's face will look like. Falx is holding one of the stones(working title) that commands the power of an army. This stone ampliflies Falx's strength a great deal and also is one of the keyes to the ruination of existence. Still not sure on a weapon for him, but i did try a sword out. In case that i forgot to mention itm Falx is Arvalis' brother and is also a deus vox.

Vira and Zill are very very different
a color scheme is all they have in common.
Zill has dragon in him from both sides of his family, but both dragons that contributed to his parent's creation were not even remotely as vibrantly colored as him, or Vira

just so we are clear

Part one - 4 AM





Bomilkar

Bomilkar son of Hanno made his way through the outskirts of the Punic camp, a torch in his hand, muttering under his breath. The sky was still the deep indigo of the summer night; to his right, a strip of paler blue was creeping up on the horizon, heralding the dawn. The day would be hot, just like that last, and the one before that. It was an early morning in August, the third year of the campaign. The Roman army was encaped ten stades from the Punic. Battle was in the air, had been for days; and Bomilkar, chief of Hannibal’s bodyguard, was searching for the general.

“ ‘Wake me an hour before dawn,’ ” he muttered to himself. “Would have been nice to know where, exactly.” Hannibal was not in his tent, and the guard outside had told Bomilkar that he hadn’t slept there at all, but had left for the outer guard posts an hour after midnight. This was hardly new behaviour, but Bomilkar wished he didn’t do this on a day where battle was likely. Sometimes, he wondered whether the general was doing this on purpose, just to keep him on his feet. As if he ever wasn’t. He could pride himself on having got Hannibal mostly unscathed through alpine ambushes, and two battles as well as several skirmishes against Roman armies.

He hadn’t gone far before a few Gaetulans waved him over and directed him to a watchfire further on, telling him, in broken Punic, that Hannibal was there. They were grinning. Yes, Bomilkar decided, he was doing this on purpose.

He found the general asleep at the fire, covered with his cloak, his back propped against a pile of baggage. The guards at this fire were Balearic slingers, for which Bomilkar was grateful. Those people had absolutely no sense of humour, and so they didn’t break out in mirth at the sight of the chief guard tracking down his charge. The men were cooking porridge, and Bomilkar remembered that he hadn’t eaten yet.

He bent down to lightly shake Hannibal’s shoulder. “The sun will come up soon.” He didn’t quite manage to keep the reproach out of his voice. “Have you been out here all night?”

Hannibal started slightly, twisting around. “I told you not to creep up on my right. – No, I haven’t. The first half of the night, I’ve been a good boy and stayed in my tent.” He gave Bomilkar a twisted grin, rubbing his dead right eye. “Anything stirring over there yet?”

Bomilkar followed the general’s gaze to the fires burning further north along the river Aufidus. The Roman army was so large that it was accommodated in two camps – a larger one on this side of the river, and a smaller on the opposite bank. “They’ve sounded the trumpets, but other than that, all quiet,” the guard replied. He eyed Hannibal. “Will they fight today?”

“Yes,” Hannibal said simply. He got to his feet in a seamless motion, stifling a yawn. “Paullus didn’t want to fight yesterday, but there’s no way Varro won’t today. He won’t risk his soldiers thinking him a coward, even less than Paullus.” He nodded his thanks to one of the men, who handed him a wooden bowl with porridge. Bomilkar smelled olive oil and salt fish, and his stomach gave a distinct rumble.

Hannibal turned to the Balearics. “Give the poor man something to eat,” he said in Iberian. “It’s just like him to have everything covered, except his stomach.”

Bomilkar gratefully accepted a second bowl, and they ate. Rations were short, but Hannibal always made sure that everyone ate properly the morning before battle. The difficulty, recently, had been to determine when exactly “the morning before battle” was.

Hannibal had already deployed his army on the left bank the day before, but Paullus, one of the two Roman consuls commanding the behemoth of an army 86,000 strong, had declined to come out to meet him. Today, it would be his colleague’s day of command. Despite their marked lack of enthusiasm on the previous day, everyone knew that the consuls had come here to fight. The days of Fabius the Delayer were over.

“Why do you think they didn’t come out yesterday?” Bomilkar asked, his mouth full. He had spoken Punic; like most Libyan soldiers who had spent a decade or so in Spain, he understood Iberian, and most of the men in Hannibal’s army had a working knowledge of Punic, but conversations around the tents tended to be a curious mishmash of a dozen different languages; three dozen if you counted the mutually intelligible dialects. Compiling lists of more than fifty faecal words was a favourite pastime that never got old.

“Why? Perhaps they couldn’t pull the standards from the ground again. Or maybe the sacred chickens wouldn’t eat. If we keep beating them, they’ll be running out of lucky portents soon.” Hannibal had reverted to Iberian for the Balearics’ benefit; two of them grunted laughs, to Bomilkar’s amazement.

“Ah, Paullus is smart,” Hannibal went on to Bomilkar, again in Punic. “He doesn’t trust me. He must have been worried I had an ambush site prepared. Though where he thinks I’d find one in a wide open plain is anyone’s guess. He probably thinks I carry them around in the baggage train.”

“That would come in handy here,” said Bomilkar, his voice betraying slight apprehension.

“What, because of those eight legions?” Hannibal said. “Don’t worry. Three hundred Lakedaimonians were enough for a hundred thousand Persians at the battle of Thermopylai.”

“They had a narrow gorge.”

“Well, yes. But we have something better.”

Bomilkar looked over the wide open plains to his right, which were now slowly becoming visible, half-expecting ravines or woods to appear there by magic. Truth be told, there was little he would put past Hannibal’s miracle-working capacities. He had led them across the Alps, he had beaten the Romans repeatedly on their own soil, and he had made Balearics laugh. “What’s that?” he asked.

Hannibal clapped him on the back and grinned. “Me.”

He turned to the men around the campfire, handing his empty bowl back to one of them. “Watch out for any activity in the Roman camp. Whatever happens, I want to know immediately. Bomilkar, have the trumpets sounded; every man is to eat enough breakfast, fill water flasks, and arm himself. We have a long day ahead of us. Gather your men together and come to my command tent. I want the commanding officers there in half an hour. The inner circle plus Qarthalo, Monomachos, Gisgo.” He clapped his hands. “Let’s get to it.”

I have some plans with this, so I'm taking most of it down to revise and rework. Sorry for the inconvenience! 


Yes, I am quite mad. And having fun.

Got the idea from ~Toradh and the idea was way funnier than my ability to sketch digitally.

The fandom I picked was my Rhyddion Chronicles, of course.

1: The hardest part by Coldplay.
Aedan and Llelo awaiting the Saexon army. A pretty hard part.

2. Simple life by My Favorite Highway.
Aedan as a child with a completely botched up Maira.

3. Waiting for today to happen by The Lightning Seeds.
Ada is a pretty passive character in the story. I think. Her role still needs to be tweaked.

4. Hey there Delilah by Plain White T's.
Some monk. Probably Father Marcus. :lmao:

5. Don't think twice, it's all right by Peter, Paul & Mary.
I really like this one.

6. Let love be your energy by Robbie Williams.
Love plays a way larger role in pop music than it does in my story, so this isn't really that typical.
Now that I think of it, Rhys would have been the better choice here...

7. Nice guys finish last by Green Day.
Llelo. :D

8. Girl from Mars by Ash.
Yeah... umm.

9. She goes on by Crowded House.
Great song, nice idea, bad execution.

10 Driftwood by Travis.
Great song by an even greater band, and utterly bland sketch.

"But in the midst of the war a spirit of great strength and hardihood came to the aid of the Valar, hearing in the far heaven that there was a war in the Little Kingdom; and Arda was filled with the sound of his laughter. So came Tulkas the Strong, whose anger passes like a mightly wind, scattering clouds and darkness before it, and Melkor fled before his wrath and his laughter."

Commission for Lutxo, to put up in his gym ;) Thanks for the great cooperation! And thanks for being so patient.

Painter and Photoshop. And the next time I do a digital pic, I'll ink it. ;)
