The Kingdom of Talarius

Created by The_Lions_Tower's Avatar The_Lions_Tower

The Kingdom of Talarius - a fully pre-supported 32mm scale army for use in your favorite fantasy tabletop games.

Created over a period of time, The Kingdom of Talarius was initially a faction for another game that never made it to print. I modelled the armour for the Kingsguard after the personal avatar I sculpted for myself during my first Kickstarter back in 2016.  Having released a few models to my Patreon, they proved pretty popular, so I expanded the range to include mounted versions. Next, the riflemen got added, and the range grew and grew - partly to meet my patrons' needs and because I wanted an army to use for Kings of War and other tabletop wargames. 

The Kingdom of Talarius is a diverse one where all races coexist, ruled over by King Garamond. Citizens drafted in for military service at the age of 18 forms the core military force of the Talarian army. Those who become professional soldiers may join the Scouts, one of the Knightly orders, or even the Royal bodyguard regiment called "the Kingsguard".

The truth of our tale was the Barghest was the high lord of a hoard of feral goblins, hobgoblins, bugbears and trolls.  While Cedric spent the Winter with the Order of the Golden Lotus, his enemy had returned, licking his wounds to his mountain home where he first planned and then initiated an offensive at Oakesgate, sat at the foot of the Drakespine mountains.  Barghests feed on the souls of their victims to grow in power. Therefore his plan was a simple one to devour enough souls to be elevated to a demi-god after his assault.   

With the first signs of Spring, the green horde, whipped into an absolute frenzy by their monstrous leader, descended the steep paths out of the uplands, their numbers turning the mountainside green. Then, still groggy with Winter, the warning signals of Oakesgate were sounded slowly, the massive horns first initiating the alarm followed by the lighting of substantial signal fires indicating for its people outside to come to the city to seek protection inside its walls. 

The goblins mindlessly cut their way through the border villages and smaller towns, killing all those before them who react too slowly to the warnings.  With only small garrisons of the Talarian army located outside the city gates, the Talarians initially suffers hefty losses as they found themselves underprepared for the onslaught.  

Eventually, in time, the entire army mustered on the field of battle to launch a counter attack against the  goblin horde.  The goblin numbers are massive, outnumbering the Talarian force vastly.  With a concern of becoming overwhelmed, Lydia steps up with a small detachment of Kingsguard to defend her.  Bowing her head, she begins to chant.   At first, a runic circle of red light appears on the ground around her feet, beams of light shooting up around her, magical runes forming in the light, changing shape and then disappearing.   The ground in front of her feet begins to crack.  the crack spreads out rapidly toward the oncoming horde and magma starts to pour out of the crack.  Suddenly, the ground erupts, and a fountain of molten fire engulfs the closest goblins.  From out of the centre of the explosion, a giant creature forms into the mighty Therion, Ifrit the Lord of Fire!

Straight away, the Therion's flaming claws are swiping at the goblins, incinerating them with its touch alone, sending their burning bodies flying this way and that into their ranks.  Ifrit smashes them, throws them, eats a few and ultimately leaps into the air, creating a giant fireball in his hands, hurling it into the centre of the goblin mass. 

Realising the summoner is behind the fire demons appearance, a unit of goblins make a beeline for her, driving through the enemy, determined to reach their target.  Physically drained by summoning the mighty Therion, Lydia first begins to sway on her feet and then begins to lose consciousness.  As this happens, two guards catch her carrying the exhausted caller to safety whilst her Shield Guard using instinct alone, formed a wall of shields in front of her to enable her an unhindered retreat.   With the rest of her bodyguard closing in to receive their attackers, the goblins realise their brave assault is now futile and flee.  As her consciousness fades, the power keeping Ifrit on the mortal plane wanes and the link is severed, sending the Theriion back to his home on the aether plane. But not before the almighty Fire Lord has caused enough damage to the enemy to turn the tide of the battle.

Battered and beaten by the Talarians, with their numbers beginning to break, the goblins are sent scuttling back to the mountains.  The Ranger Corps set up stationed watch towers all across the Drakespine to ensure that they receive sufficient warning of a significant surprise attack in the future.  The reason for this? Unfortunately for the victors, the Barghest survived the battle, strategically withdrawing from the conflict to fight another day.

"Garmond decreed that all citizens over the age of 18 must go through mandatory military training and a period of 5 years military service.  During a 6 week basic training period, all soldiers are assessed to determine their key proficiencies and where they can best serve. 

Those showing an aptitude for ranged weapons are initially drafted into the yeomen and spend their time at the target range practicing with their long bows. 

Those that show an aptitude for Melee combat (or even just no real aptitude at all!) are usually enrolled in the Light Infantry as men at arms.  Then there are those that occasionally appear that have something a little more special to offer...

Once their period of mandatory service was over, the citizens of Talarius are given 2 options – return to their home lives and continue with their family trades whilst continuing to maintain their combat training (albeit in a less active manner) and remaining on standby in case of a national emergency; or continue their service as professional soldiers.  A large number obviously are always desperate to get out of harms way and return to civilian life, raise a family and so on.

Those that choose to remain have a number of paths open to them.  There are officer roles commanding units, detachments or even legions.  There are specilaised roles within the Light Infantry and Light Cavalry that require someone with both grit and experience.  And then there are the Knightly orders that will always be on the lookout for talented individuals"

Feeling there was an opportunity needed to create a tactical advantage in a battle, Abel began searching for ways that he could strike hard and fast at the enemy where they least expected it.  King Garmond agreed, and Abel was granted a small unit of loyal Kingsguard that he hand picked for their tenacity and fearlessness.

It was during a drinking session with Chief Engineer Sidney that Abel had a moment of inspiration – those air ships! They were fast and agile thanks to Cid’s sheer technical genius! The enemy would expect a frontal attack, they may even be somewhat prepared to deal with flanking and rear attacks, but could they possibly expect an attack from the air?! They set to developing their shock tactics, training and refining them until they had them perfected. They favoured heavy bladed polearms such as spears and lances and would leap from the deck of the airships to descend on their enemies from above, using their own velocity and fiercely sharp spears to turn themselves into living projectiles! It is a dangerous tactic as if they were to miss their target their chance of surviving the impact was low, but if they hit their target after reaching terminal velocity, they could skewer even the toughest and most heavily armoured targets!

From within the depths of the enemy ranks, these elite and agile soldiers are able to sow panic and dissent amongst the enemy ranks before leaping from combat to strike another target. Their fearlessness and ferocity, as well as their Captain’s love and fascination with dragons earned them the name “The Order of the Dragon”.

Only the most fearless of soldiers are permitted entry to join the Order of the Dragon, and even then only after they have completed their induction ritual. They are sent into the Drakespine mountains armed with nothing but a spear and must hunt and slay a wind drake and capture its essence in an Esper Crystal. The pelt of the slain beast is worn as a mantle to both as a public display of their prowess, but also to remind them what it takes to be part of the regiment.

Talarius is a melting pot of races, with Humans, Orcs, Elves, Demonkin and catfolk all commonplace. Dwarves are less common but are seen occasionally, and then there are Ogres. Ogres are not monsters, but are enormous sentient humanoid creatures. They are not known for having the sharpest of intellects, but what they lack in brains they make up for in strength. In civilian life you will find Ogres working as doormen in taverns, labouring at the forges and on farms, and assisting in warehouse operations. They are commonly recruited as mercenaries because they are simply a fearsome sight on the battlefield and few people will want to stand toe to toe with even a single one of them!

Ogres are drafted into the military service like any other citizen of Talarius, and those that choose to remain on as professional soldiers often have developed a love of a good fight. Civilian life will almost certainly lead to disastrous consequences for them, but King Garmond saw another way to make good use and also keep them out of trouble. He spoke at length to Artun of Fer’air, one of the first Ogres that had ever been recruited into the Kingsguard. This of course meant he was incredibly disciplined and loyal, but more than that, Artun was particularly intelligent for an Ogre and had a keen mind for tactics. Garmond asked Artun to take these combat enthusiastic Ogres under his wing and instill in them discipline, learn about their abilities and design some special tactics that would make the best possible use of them.

Artun took 5 of these Ogres from their mandatory service and took them out beyond the Drakespine mountain range and onto the Plains. They disappeared for 3 years.

One day there was uproar in Oakesgate! Garmond looked out of the window of the palace and saw civilians running around the streets screaming. The screams suddenly stopped and turned to cheering. What was going on?! Garmond took a detachment of Kingsguard with him and rode out into town. In the town square, they were greeted by a group of feral looking ogres accompanied by a massive Behemoth! The horned and spined creature was immense in its size and strength and terrifying to behold, but amazingly it stood there calmly and did not appear to be a threat.   Artun and his retinue had returned.

Artun greeted Garmond and explained to him that this Behemoth was him, and he was it. It had been his tactical inspiration. When he had first seen the magnificent creature, it had been attacked by a hoard of feral goblins and trolls that had tried collectively to bring it down. It had charged at them using its massive horns to rend the unfortunate creatures in its path. It had swiped out with its huge limbs and spike tail and wiped out scores of goblins, and even in the face of overwhelming numbers had refused to go on the defensive and had instead relied on its enormous mass and had gone into a wild rage, attacking relentlessly. Seeing the total obliteration of their kin, the remaining trolls and kobolds had simply scattered and run away.

The Ogres adopted this combat technique and sought out challenges to refine it. The best Defence was a berserk Offence! Let the attackers in and then show them true might and fury!

When they finally approached the Behemoth, there was no fear, there was no apprehension and there was no aggression on either side. The Ogres and the behemoth were on the same level and the behemoth understood Artun implicitly. They had created a soul bond - a magical connection where both spirits were united and each is spiritually a part of the other. From this moment on, Garmond named Artun and his Ogre Berserkers the Order of the Behemoth. Of course first on his list to do was to visit the smithy and get them fitted out with some strong armour! if they weren’t going to practice defence, Garmond still wanted his soldiers protected!!

"Cedric’s eyes opened slowly, his vision blurred.  He blinked a few times and rubbed his eyes, and as his focus returned to him, he realised he was in a simple but warm and inviting building.  His last memory had been of falling through the glacier – he had thought himself dead, though evidently he had (thankfully) been wrong. 

A soft voice came from across the room “Ah, he is awake!  Quick, fetch Master Kang and inform him our guest is awake”

A man walked across the room to meet him.  He was an elf, with his hair tied up on top of his head.  He was wearing a dark blue robe with golden yellow coloured garments visible beneath the robes.  The prayer beads he wore in abundance on his person let Cedric know he was in the presence of one of the Warrior Monks of the Order of the Golden Lotus.  He had met many monks in his years living in Oakesgate, where they frequently visited the markets to stock up on provisions.  It was well known that they lived in isolation in the Drakespine Mountains in their fortified monastery.  Is this where he was now?  Had the Monks rescued him from certain death?

“Did you bring me here?” He attempted to sit up and pain wracked his body – clearly he had not escaped his fall unscathed!

The Monk jumped to his aid immediately, helping Cedric to sit up on the edge of his bed.  “You were left at the gate of our monastery sir.  We had thought you near death, but it would seem the Dragon King Bahamut smiles upon you as you not only continue to draw breath, but have now regained your consciousness”.

“How long have I been here?” asked Cedric

“You arrived here 3 days ago”.

“Who brought me here?  My last memory was falling from the Ice bridge on the Glacier”

“That is some miles from here.  Clearly someone must have found you and helped you here, but it was not one of our own.”

“Thank you for providing me aid and for saving my life good sir” Cedric said finally.  Then he sat and pondered for a few minutes.  The Barghest he had fought would have killed him if it had too survived the fall, and it was the only other living being up there with him to his knowledge.  Who had Saved his life? 

Then he remembered, his fading vision….the Dragon!"
