Report article RSS Feed Preview : the Variags of Khand

The charging horsemen, the mounted archers... The Hordes of Khand have come! Like a cracking whip, the horsemen of Khand have thundered into the West, smashing through all obstacles, decimating and destroying, burning and pillaging. We are the Variags and we do not bow before anyone.

The Variags of Khand

Our land is one of grasses, wind and the open sky. We measure our lands by the distance of days, or weeks, and the passing of seasons. Long days pass by, and we sing around our camp fires at night, love and laugh together; for what is the use of passing through to the earth without experiencing it to the fullest? I have missed one of the greatest things in life, a thing we do well, and we love as much as our women and children: We love one thing more than this Earth and sky; we love War! We love it deeply, and we are good at it.

Only in battle are you truly alive. To feel the apprehension before, to delight in wetting the earth in an hour more times than in one day’s passing, then of the swift clash of arms, the tiredness, the splash of bright blood and the feeling of armour parting under a swift strike. What more is there than the sight of the surprise as you rip your axe free, to bury it deep in another blow, a finishing strike that sees another life leaving quickly dimming eyes.

To be alive after, to sing victory, to drink yourself to a stupor, and pass out with the realisation you did not die, you passed the test of arms, and that your body will not rot or burn with the ones that failed the test of war. In the winning, you absorb more, you take the women, and slay the men if they do not give themselves over to you and your own. For this is how we grow strong; we defeat utterly, kill many, then give servitude to those who accept it, making us stronger as a whole. For, amongst the steppes, there are many tribes of Khand, many Variags, and we seek to consolidate, to gather to our banners the greatest force.

Looking great! :) Although perhaps there could be a bit of difference between the Khand Elite Lancers and the Variag Nobles? :)

Sorry for this. It was a bit late and I take two times the same pictures. Nothing really important. It is changed now.
