Yuatse River Battle, Kleineng War, 3128 a.a.H.

Sir Johann Chelshire, officer of the Joaquintopian Empire, was tasked during the Kleineng War to land along with some Royal Infantry of Marine soldiers in the Yuatse river, near the Binese-Kleineng border, to protect the Joaquintopian interests in north-eastern Bina, as the advance of the Kleineng warlords menaced the construction of the Railway by McTonish & McTonish Company, a Joaquintopian railway company that was building the railways between Shuanzi and the Binese Imperial capitol.

As the Joaquintopian gunboats, who had been a key “diplomatic” assets of the Joaquintopian Empire in east Hieyoks landed a 120 men strong infantry of marine unit and 6 guns in the Yuatse River.

Lord Chelshire, despise the reports of an army of 14.000 Kleineng soldiers marching to the Yuatse river, and rather than to expect reinforcements of the Imperial Binese Army –that he despised due racial prejudgments and previous Binese-Joaquintopian wars-, he advanced his small detachment to the north bank of the Yuatse river, to settle a defensive perimeter.

When the advanced forces of the Kleineng arrived –some 1.500 men-, they rolled over Chelshire and his men, completely defeating the Joaquintopian force, and killing his commander.

The only thing that delayed the Kleineng in invading north western Bina was that the same Joaquintopian gunboats had to destroy the railway bridges built by McTonish & McTonish, while the Imperial Binese Army massed their forces.

The Kleineng wouldn’t be able to cross the Yuatse due the Joaquintopian control of the river with their gunships, but they did use the captured Joaquintopian and Klauseng artillery units in several artillery duels with the Joaquintopian gunships.

Back in Joaquintopia, the death of Sir Chelshire –due his own incompetence- would instead be praised as martyrdom, and used this uproar to prepare a new expeditionary force to be send to East Hieyoks.

An expeditionary force that will arrive too late, at the 3130 a.a.H, when the Kleineng War already finished, being used these soldiers instead to force their Binese allies in the war to more unequal treaties.





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-.

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 Ignacian Wars where a serie of armed conflicts that spawned for over almost 70 years, between the Gastronomic Empire -which was known as IG, under the rule of the three successive emperors, Ignacio I, Ignacio II and Ignacio III –the Ignacios- being the Ignacian wars a serie of otherwise unrelated conflicts, except in that they where fought by –or against- the Ignacian, being made several alliances to face the IG.

The wars will be fought in Aels, Zarhuy and Hieyoks.

One of the more persistent and permanent enemies of the IG; who will always take part of the anti-Ignacian alliances, will be Bazikstan, who will be ones to carry the most of the burden in these wars.

During most of the Ignacian wars –the first 50 years- the bazik army was badly trained, worse equipped, outdated and severly outclassed by their foes, with bad discipline, corrupt and incompetent offuiers, divided command, shattered by tribal and national rivalries and low moral, meeting one defeat after other. It was said, the only quality of the bazik armies of that age, was their quantity.



Old, old, ooooold drawing of 2000!! Wow, how time flies XD
I was in my 5th year of school back then!

Here, a Bazik cavalry charge against an armored column of the Ignacian. After many slaughters of cavalry units, who couldn’t do anything against the Ignacian tanks with their spears and sabers, they where equipped as well with grenades and improvised demolition charges, that they where to use, riding behind the enemy tanks –or flanking them- to try to destroy them.

wooden toy horses are wooden toy horses. XD

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.

This Ivy for the one, the only :iconshiroikai: . Ive been friends with her for like two years now, ive only drawn three pics for her including this one, i really need to draw more pics for her. This is her trademark character known as Ivy, the half demon, half robot, all awesome character that she is well known for. I designed a new outfit for her, her outfit changes so frequently i thought i should make up my own too. Being that she shares her name with Namco's iconic SoulCalibur character, i figured why not give her an outfit that is real similar. I liked giving her a little bit more midieval touch in her fashion and armor as well. I really hope you like it kai, i really enjoy drawing your characters and being friends with you.

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

This is a for a prerendered isometric online game. The image on the left shows my initial loose concept design (removed per client request... sorry), and the image on the right shows my final 3D modeled, shaded and lit set (created in Autodesk Maya 8.5, rendered with MentalRay). This one had a ton of changes to the design during production, mainly the lighting direction and color and the addition of the new building on the bottom left.

This is a replica of an original 16th century German Tapulbrust harness and a 16th century Raven's Beak Pollax. This armor is made from wax castings off of original pieces, utilizing original armor smithing techniques. It is made of mild steel and is custom fit to the owner.

From top to bottom we have the Close Helm (head), Pauldrons (shoulders), Brassards (arms), Gauntlets (hands), Cuirrass (breastplate and backplate), Tassets (upper thigh), Cuisses (thigh), Poleyns (knees), Greaves (calves), and Sabatons (feet).

This is a replica of an original 15th century War of the Roses harness and a 15th century pollax. The armor style is German Gothic. This armor is made from wax castings off of original pieces, utilizing original armor smithing techniques. The only differences are that the steel in this armor is stainless as oppose to mild and it is custom fit to the owner.

From top to bottom we have the Sallet (top of head), Bevor (chin), Spalders (shoulders), Besigeus (flower shaped armpit protection), Cuirrass (breasplate and backplate), Brassards (arms), Gaunlets (hands), Tassets (plates on the upper hip, near his hands), Cuisses (thighs), Poleyns (knees), Greaves (calves), and Sabatons (feet).
