Description

Missionary Mk II

Praetorians are advanced arcane powered mechanical suits of armour. The arcane core housed in each Praetorian greatly reduces its weight and multiplies the strength of the pilot inside, allowing a pilot to operate the massive suit of mechanical armor to devastating effect on the battlefield. The Kingdom of Celesia prevailed in the Dragon War in large part thanks to these suits, and they remain central to the Kingdom’s military doctrine. An attack from a Praetorian weapon will all but obliterate anything on the battlefield besides another Praetorian. As a result, Praetorians have gone on to become critical tools of war for every nation, as little else but a Praetorian can engage hostile Praetorians.

The Missionary MK II Praetorian is the most widely used medium Praetorian by the Kingdom of Celesia. The Missionary MKII has proven to be reliable, easy to produce, and can be found in great numbers throughout the Kingdom. Distributed throughout the Kingdom to garrison forces, it is the first Praetorian Celesian Pilots learn to use. This versatility means that regardless of where a Missionary is stationed, any Celesian pilot will be well trained in its use.

The MK II Missionary was developed based on the early MK I Missionary that was used in the Dragon War. The MK I was slightly faster due to its lighter armour, however after the conclusion of the Dragon War Celesian military doctrine began to favour defence. As such, a redesign of the Missionary was commissioned that incorporated thicker armour and a larger shield. Missionary MKII’s are by default armed with a Praetorian Sword and Kite Shield, but many other armaments combinations exist to allow this basic Praetorian to be outfitted to complement the fighting style of its Pilot.

Limited Edition Bonus: The first 50 Missionary MK II’s will contain a limited edition Missionary MK I Unit Statistics Card that allows them to be used as Missionary MK I’s in Kingdom & Empire.

The Missionary MK II stands at 77mm (3.03 inches) tall when assembled, translating to approximately 12 feet tall in Kingdom & Empire game scale.

Celesian Praetorian Pilot

Celesian Pilots are trained directly by the Celesian Military Academy to pilot the advanced arcane suits of armour called Praetorians. Due to their key role in enabling the Kingdom of Celesia to prevail in the Dragon War, Praetorians have become a core element of the Kingdom’s military doctrine.

The requirements to qualify for Praetorian pilot training are rigorous. Applicants must complete the Academy’s basic military training and then obtain specializations in several advanced fighting disciplines as well as tactical and basic command training before they can apply. Those accepted to train as Praetorian pilots are typically members of the nobility: Not only is the training itself expensive, but the maintenance and upkeep on a Praetorian are even more so.

While Praetorians are certainly intimidating sights on the battlefield, ultimately it is the the fighting skills and battle tactics of each Praetorian pilot that determine their combat effectiveness. Each pilot is trained one or more Praetorian model, and their particular skills are best put to use on the Praetorian(s) they are trained on. While a pilot can typically make basic use of any Praetorian, even enemy Praetorians, they will not be familiar with the intricacies of how they work and thus their combat abilities will be hampered.

The Celesian Pilot stands at just under 40mm (1.57 inches) tall when assembled, translating to approximately 6 feet tall in Kingdom & Empire game scale.

The Missionary MK II & Celesian Praetorian Pilot bundle includes:

  • 14(+) part multi-pose Missionary MK II resin model kit with selected weapon and shield option(s)
  • 4(+) part multi-pose Celesian Pilot miniature in hand-cast resin with selected weapon and shield option(s)
  • 60mm plastic base
  • 32mm plastic base
  • Custom stamped box (omitted if the cheapest shipping option is selected)

Note: Our white hand cast resin miniature parts come ready to prime and do not need to be washed first. Also, please take extra care in trimming resin parts. These are very finely detailed miniatures and patience and care in trimming will help prevent accidentally damaging parts. We recommend trimming such that you leave some material on the edges to be removed by sandpaper or emery board to minimize the risk of accidentally damaging a part.

Note: Our grey 3D printed resin parts require little to no trimming and sanding by the end user, making them much easier and faster to work with than traditionally hand-cast resin parts.
