IAF045 Legate Vanya of the Styx Legion pack released!

Code labelled Legate Vanya, this is the little we know about the apparent commander of the Styx Legion. As you will all appreciate the Styx have been as a river of death to us flowing from that accursed gateway ever since the traitor Hugo Sevaris brought the Khanate back to the Precinct. The red and black glimmer suits of this legion are a constant to us here on Camarthan and in surrounding space and we are unsure of their total numbers. Their Legate can go weeks without being seen and then lead a charge into our positions in person. He is rare for a Legionary in that he shows his face, we are working on determining a species type from this and is in possession of technology which is beyond our current understanding. A personal energy robe emitter that is capable of blocking projectile and plasma rounds and so far we have not been able to penetrate on the field of war. Reports and visual feed have Vanya inspiring loyalty that borders on the insane from his Legionaries. This is the sum of our knowledge and we must expand it if we hope to make the Styx Legion a vanquished threat.”
Majoris Killian Jones, Camarthen Prime, 4331IC

IAF045 Legate Vanya of the Styx Legion
The Styx Legion is a veteran fighting force and its troops had the honour of being the first through the Matter Gateway on to Camarthan Prime. The legion has a complex and not fully understood command structure that the Prydian Army is still trying to piece together but what is known is that a Legion is led by at least one Legate. That is the human term for the officer that rules the Styx Legion and while the actual name of the officer is not known he is code named 'Vanya'. Legate Vanya is a living legend among his own and his enemy too. We are proud to present to you our first character miniatures for the Shia Khan Empire in 15mm scale.  It goes well with our first Prydian Army character pack IAF005 Balthazar and Jerome. This pack contains two white metal miniatures depicting Legate Vanya and his personal guard legionary. The guard is in a ceremonial glimmer suit and armed with a Juno 2.0Kw laser rifle while the Legate is bare headed standing above a fallen Retained Knight helmet arms crossed. Vanya wears an ultra rare personal energy robe emitter and has a Cupid 0.5Kw Laser Pistol secreted upon his person. This code can be bought as a pack of two miniatures or as single poses or three packs saving 10%. Price 1.20GBP per pack. Go HERE.

  1. Hi Gavin, I was just wondering if there's any news on "Patrol Angis"?
