Struggle for the corpse prize

Above- Forces of the Adeptus mechanicus and the Dark Mechanicus clash in the streets of Volgagrad trying to claim the wreckage of a shot down Heldrake.  The bitter combat between these two factions was heightened not only by centuries of utter hatred and loathing but also by the richness of such prizes that could be obtained along with the subsequent knowledge.

Imperial probe on the Canberra Front

Above-  Imperial forces in the Canberra River Valley on Vexus Prime probe the Stygian forward defensive lines during the horrific trench warfare that was the hallmark of the Canberra Front.  The Probe is by soldiers of the 33rd Anglican infantry regiment and backed with limited artillery support and that of a lone armored sentinel.  Unfortunately for the Imperials the Stygians was well dug in and have been able to drop defensive artillery of their own down upon the Imperial probe.

Stygian Baneblade

Baneblades were found in use by Stygian forces throughout the Stygian Wars.  Produced either by the Dark Mechanicus or salvaged from captured Imperial wrecks they provided a hard hitting superheavy vehicle capable of wrecking havoc.  The appearance of a baneblade often signaled Stygian intent in a theatre of operations, as these vehicles were committed to only the most important of operations.

Masters of Insurgency

Above-  Alpha Legion champion Tybalt of the 7th Hydra Grand Company accompanied by a squad of Alpha Legion marines and a combat familiar on Smarkad III.  The Alpha Legion was hands down the premiere experts on insurgency and often directed Stygian units in active insurgency operations increasing their effectiveness by a magnitude far out of proportion to their numbers.

Anglican Basalisk 1

Throughout the Stygian Wars Anglican regiments made heavy use out of Artillery.  The Basalisk was a favorite support vehicle for Anglican infantry and armored regiments.  As a result they were widely deployed across all fronts in the Stygian Wars where Anglican regiments were in action.

Dark mechanicus outpost 547

Above-  A Fairly typical Dark mechanicus outpost facility as encountered in the Stygian Wars.  Note that this is only an outpost facility and is thus not as large as the standard Dark mechanicus facilities.
