training camp

Grenada Reconquest- Iberian campaign- Iberia-  A Stygian training camp for militia is seen above.  Regular Stygian guardsmen along with an officer conduct training for militia forces that will serve as a local pdf against invading imperial forces.  Such bases and camps were common throughout the Stygian Empire.  They allowed for the quick and effective raising of new cadres into the Empire and greatly increased the pool of trained manpower the Stygian Empire could draw from.  Furthermore when Alpha Legion overseers oversaw the training, huge quantities of highly trained insurgent forces could be mustered and then deployed elsewhere to forment and undertake revolutions on Imperial worlds.
