So i figure i’d start with something special, and a bit out there…..
The Fluff (back story):
Introducing a Vengeance Queen; a Free Blade relic knight from Xandath Mon.
The pilot is Princess Amirah Serphuhi Isabella Mitras.
Xandath Mon is a small inhabited moon orbiting a gas giant on the outer rim. Settled by accident; when a mechanicum expedition was unable to leave due to an accident with their space craft. Explorers became settlers. They had some early knight prototypes - kinda a techno steampunk syle (yeh i was just having a bit of fun and wanted a knight that was steampunkish - caught me). These knights were used for collecting samples in harsh environment, general construction, etc.
The BAs discovered the small 'kingdom' and offered the usual ultimatum - Turn back into the Emporers light….yadah, yada or face his wrath. The Ruling house of which Ami was heir, planned to submit, however, techery saw her father killed by the Lords of the other houses, and defiance of the BA request resulted in swift retribution.
Ami was out for vengeance. She manned her relic Knight and set out to reek havoc on her fathers murderers. In the process she saved a squad of BAs from an ambush and then lead a counter-attach with the BAs resulting in a massive slaughter of all the other knights. With the defeat of the settlements main form of defence and the swift execution of all the rogue lords. Ami, being the sole survivor of the ruling elite, agreed to submit to the BA commander.
Disheatened by the death of her father, she did not wish to stay and rule; So she joined the BAs as an Asset. And so ....
WORK in progress - part undercoat. Originally thinking of this being an assault knight.
A wee bit further along. Decided the gatling cannon was a bit more BA orientated.
