The elite knights and bodyguards of his imperial Majesty are second- or third born sons of an old royal lineage who share strong bonds with the imperial family. Because of their strong beliefs it is their life’s duty to protect the worldly ruler chosen by God and to stand by his side during courtly events which certainly emphasises the general pomposity. Starting at a young age these boys receive a strictly religious upbringing and are instructed in courtly manners, common knowledge, math, music and horsemanship. At the age of twelve the lads are brought to the imperial court as pages to complete their education. Following the knightly tradition they learn how to tend to their armour and mounts and are briefed in the art of warfare. At the age of fourteen they are subordinated to an Eagle as knave and receive further education in competitive horse riding and the use of fire arms. At the approximate age of twenty-one their education is complete and they receive their proper armour and are dubbed knights. Their armour represents the imperial banner - the eagle - and has been masterfully forged in the style of the great Maximilan. The knightly longsword is a symbol for their strong belief as it is blessed and bestowed by the archbishop himself. Should the emperor be in danger, the warriors would resort to their modern 3-shot percussion gun and use their sword merely for self-defence

Thanks a lot Andy,

There is still a lot of technical stuff to solve on Tower, which Marco is just doing these days, but technically finishing the game will take some more months of devtime. Currently he is working on the online multiplayer, which already works, but still has a lot of bugs.

The graphics for the game are pretty far though, and only minor additions need to get done, as we go along.

I really like the dragon-ey claw feet. I feal like that small detail tells the most about the character. Love the work!

Your armor is always damn good, love it! I just think you put a bit to many details in the folds of the clothes. But excellent piece!

Die kleine Geschichte dazu ist auch nett zu lesen :)

Damn! Looks amazing! Although I find the right hand a wee bit awkward looking.
