“The Cylde system is loyal to the throne and to the Council of Aeddans too. True it is a strange place of local customs and traits that you will not see elsewhere but it is a fine addition to the loyal systems. Primary population centres are on Cylde IV and this planet was the main focus of the Canlastrian League's recent attempt to seize the region for themselves. Up to that point the Prydian Army strength in the Cylde system was small, no more than some thirty thousand troops and knights, with the bulk of the forces being the Clydian Army locally raised and trained. During the siege the orbital dock works of Clyde IV saw a lot of action and the ships fabricated there were fought over at close range. When the siege was raised by the arrival of our fleet there was a tense few weeks when we are sure that they assumed we would occupy their cities ourselves. But it was not our intention and in fact we have since then incorporated just over one million soldiers of the Clydian Army into our ranks as Muster Regiments and a great many Retained too. They are superb fighters and have proved their mettle already. Mention must also be made of the ruling class of the Cylde system who have sworn their oaths to the throne almost without exception. Especially the pair who defended the portable castle Sawlande from Canlastrian Assaulters and brought its weapons to bear on the foe despite their damaged state. The Lady Arachne and her aide the Knight Errant Giliam have been given command of a hundred strong Banner in the 9th Retained Regiment.”

IAF063 Arachne and Giliam
After their successful defence and taking the fight to the Canlastrians with the portable castle Sawlande during the siege of Cylde IV the Lady Arachne and Knight Errant Giliam have seen a lot more battles with the Prydian Army. Giliam had been, as is fitting for a Knight Errant, wandering the systems looking for a cause and his arrival in Cylde space in the weeks before the invasion gave it to him. The Lady Arachne is a fierce commander who values Giliams technical skills and he her tactics in war. They make a fine pair and command a Banner (4 Lances) in the 9th Retained Regiment. Arachne is dressed in personalised Alwite powered armour and carries an Octo powered sword while Giliam wears Alwite powered armour and carries a Valerin Laser Rifle and a Data pad making use of specialised googles and helm displays.

The month is now underway and as we promised it is an infantry focused period of time. Last week we released the fantastic all female IAF059 Muster 2nd Squad and we would like to thank you all for your interest and support in these lady soldiers. We are looking at characters this week as we release this new two figure pack and the next two weeks will be firstly a preview of our next big release (we have no Early Supporter Offer this month) and then a week later its release with an offer. What will this be...well no details for now aside from to say that we are up-gunning our infantry once more with some codes that go well with the fire support a Battlesuit can bring but its not a vehicle.
