Gathering Forces - The Red Dragons Company

Hi all, wow I haven't posted for awhile, been a busy year for me so far, haven't had much time for the hobby. I have been slowly working my way through my lead mountain, and with the release of the latest book in the Ion Age series The Khanate Return I thought I'd better start gathering forces to repel the invasion. I'm goning to start with my Retained Knights, there have been a few additions to show you, I've also written a background for them. This page is also to be found on my Projects page. Hope you enjoy!


The origins of the Red Dragon Company goes back to the war against Baron Reff. When Baron Bradshaw Reff, rebelled against King Cyon III and the Council of Addans in 4302 IC, Baron Culhwch of Caledfwlch answered the call to arms from the King. Personally leading the bulk of his army, comprising of both Retained and Muster, he left his home world in the care of his brother Bedwyr.

Culhwch and Bedwyr had never been close, while Culhwch was a natural leader, Bedwyr was selfish and cruel, this often caused tension and fighting between them as they grew up. When their father died he granted them joint rule over Caledfwlch in an attempt to bring them together. However, ultimately, this had the opposite effect. Resentment had been gnawing at Bedwyr's heart, he thought himself the only rightful ruler of Caledfwlch and no longer would he share with his brother.

When Baron Culhwch returned home after the death of the King he found much had changed in the years he had been away. Bedwyr had raised his own army and bolstered the fortifications around the planet. As his fleet approached Caledfwlch, without warning, the orbital defences opened fire. Unprepared, his fleet lost three frigates before they could raise their own defences, many other ships in his fleet had been badly damaged as well. After the initial shock of the assault abated, Culhwch, normally a quiet and reserved leader, flew into a wild rage. He vowed to crush his brother and all who served him, for this betrayal. Once awoken the fire-power of his remaining fleet made short work of the orbital defences. Then he unleashed all of his forces to the ground assault of the capitol, taking the battle straight to his brother.

The battle was short and bloody, campaign veterans against Bedwyr's untried Planetary Militia and Muster. Such was the rage of Culhwch and his forces that the Code Gallant was all but forgotten. Baron Culhwch, personally leading a lance, breached Bedwyr's castle defences, cutting down retreating Muster on his rush to face his brother. Bedwyr was found cowering in the reception hall, his bodyguards having deserted him. Culhwch strode up to him and cut his head from his body, he looked around shocked at what he had done, his armour, once yellow, was now red with the blood of his kinsmen, without a word he walked away.

Ashamed at the destruction that he and his brother had caused his homeworld, Culhwch left the planet, vowing never to step foot there again. He took his forces to a small mining planet, of Khartuum, that his family had owned and settled there. Renaming his company, The Red Dragons, after the flying beasts on Khartuum and repainting their armour red as a reminder of the day they broke the Code Gallant, they now hire themselves out as a Condot.
