Rahjka is considerd a paridise by quar all over Alwyd. It's lush jungles and astonishing beaches bring many quar from many diffrent regions and cultures. It is both an amazing vacation spot and trade center that almost rivals Zengi. It is safe to say that soldiers from this island look forward to going home more than most soldiers and that may be why they are so motivated to fight once they are on the front.

Here is a Yawdryl with his fire team:




The one crouching down is a medic. (What motivated me to become a faedyg? Well, I guess I wanted to see more of my friends come home with me.)


Here is the LMG

The crew seperates from the base of the gunner.




The Caertens and Syrnols have led many sucessful advances into the Islands of Inishcol and for that the soldiers and Alykinder are very thankful.









The cooks are the rhyflers most favored quar. Preparing dishes native to Rahjka they help remind the quar of what is waiting for them at the end of their service should they fight hard enough to see it (not that they need any reminder).






Here is the flag bearer,





and the sniper.





The 7th will most likely be on the front lines where ever they have been sent ("sentanced to for an unknown crime" as the rhyflers sometimes say) to. Some quar view the Rahjkan's as lazy only considering that much of their home land is vacation spot however once one fights alongside the Rahjkans most will have a new found sense of respect for them.

Very nice models.
I particularly like the LMG with the ammo belt.
Where did you get/buy this ammo belt/case?

I got it from the GW Imperial Gaurd heavy weapon team. I had to file an eagle off of it first. You won't see it in the picture but the model comes with multiple weapon options so it will be there.

Hi Austin. Is this the unit who battered my poor Royalists to pieces today?

Well done, buddy!

How did it end up? You had the Ailthean crippled and the rest of Alykinder's lapdogs on the run.

It ended with Austin's tractor with a stickybomb on it and my remaining three units falling back to cover.

Instead of ramming, my Cheesewheel flattened that bit of cover that was working *against* me and then backed up out of minimum shooting range and what I believed was the blast radius of the stickybomb. This seemed to be a good solution to the ramming question.

At this point I realized my parking meter had expired 18 minutes ago and not wanting to pay ANOTHER friggin' $60 parking ticket, Austin and I declared a Royalist victory (this time, and just barely as he was playing really well) and I ran out to the car.

Thanks for refereeing. Austin, thanks again for playing.

Across the street from EG, just to the left of the brewery (if you're facing it from the EG side of the street), there is a ramp that goes down below street level that has a bunch of parking that is free on Saturdays. That parking is first-come first-serve on Saturdays, so you can always park down for free on Saturdays. Just FYI.

Nice, Austin! I picked up a Royalist NCO but I think I need a lot more to stand against your Crusaders. Next time you won't be so gentle with my Blues....

I wonder if there is a Ranger school in Fidwog...?

Love the radio operator! Nice use of bits there, and he looks great on the large base with his little entrenchment.

They have snipers so I guess they do.

Caerten Aoos and his quar were in a tight spot. His command section and the rest of the Rahjkan 7th were pinned down by a pair of tractors and several crewed machineguns, and the enemy was advancing. To make matters worse, he had no way of calling for help.

No reliable way, anyways.

He glanced over his shoulder at the smoking hole that was all that remained of Milwer Hynn and his pykpyks. Aoos cursed the lucky Arnyaran sod who had dropped that particular mortar round on them. All he had left was Rhyfler Teh and the damned contraption GHQ had foisted upon him.

No more pykpyks! they’d said. No more pigeons! No more taking guns off the line! To hear those lucky so-and-so’s tell it, the wireless could beat the crownies singlehanded.

But they were safe in a tent someplace, and he was getting the stuffing knocked out of him. Half of first platoon were down, wounded or outright dead. Second was in little better shape, and the two Chyweethls were closing fast.

“Dammit,” he cursed. “Teh, get over here. Bring the brick.”

The rhyfler grumbled and added a few choice words of his own but rolled out of his nice, deep foxhole just the same. He reached back into the hole and lugged the huge wireless set up and over the rim. Teh crawled across the hardpan of the altiplano, dragging the radio behind him. Aoos didn’t trust the bloody thing, not one bit, but right now he had no choice.

Teh wound the crank on the side of the wireless and tossed the handpiece to his officer. He kept cranking while otherwise trying to keep as low a profile as possible.

“Nest One, Nest One, this is Blackbird,” Aoos felt stupid using the codewords, but the diminutive quar from the SBS had been very, very persuasive, and he didn’t fancy another ‘interview’ with him. “I’ve got two Chyweethls at Position Grand. I repeat, two Chyweethls at Position Grand. Request immediate response.”

The static emanating from the speaker changed tone and volume for a moment, but that was it. Aoos repeated the whole message just to be sure.

“We heard you the first time, Blackbird. Stop tying up the lines,” a bored voice crackled back eventually. The officer restrained the urge to turn his Gryfkis on the damned thing, but only barely.

“Don’t worry, lads! We’ve got help on the way!” Whether that help came as artillery, aeros, or a tractor of their own, Aoos didn’t really care. Not so long as GHQ did something while most of his quar were still alive to benefit.




Twenty minutes later, Caerten Aoos was still pinned down and absolutely livid. The royalist advance had stalled – one of the tractors looked to be hung up, and the other would not continue on alone, and the rhyflers wouldn’t budge without the armor – but the volume of fire passing mere inches above his head had not abated. Nor had the endless barrage of mortar rounds and light artillery slackened at all. Thankfully it was overshooting their position by about thirty feet, but it still cut off their retreat. There had been no sign of at all of any kind of relief. Aoos had made a half-dozen calls to GHQ, with no response. He was about to send Teh off with a written message when the rhyfler pointed at something moving behind them.

“Oh, thank the fathers,” Aoos whispered.

Whatever it was, it was moving fast. An Ailthean, maybe, or one of the local tractor-hunters they’d captured and refitted. It was kicking up a tremendous amount of dust. The driver careened right through the bombardment area and skidded to a halt next to the shredded remnants of Aoos’ command tent.

Bullets struck metal somewhere within the pall of dust. Aoos waited for a response – the main gun firing, a machinegun, anything.

Instead, he heard a quar shouting. He sounded shrill, almost panicked.

“Hey! Hey, who’s shooting? Quit it!”

A door slammed open and a fat, sweaty quar in overalls and a floppy hat fell out. He immediately rolled into Teh’s vacated hole.

“What the deuce is going on?” Aoos shouted at him.

“I don’t know,” the newcomer whined. “They told me you guys needed stuff out here, right away.”

“What’s in the truck?” Aoos howled, aghast. The dust had settled to show a simple panel truck, now riddled with bulletholes.

“Two cheesewheels and a canned ham.”
