Ignacian Wars, Cavalry Charge by Shabazik Ignacian Wars, Cavalry Charge by Shabazik


The Ignacian Wars where a serie of armed conflicts that spawned for over almost 70 years, between the Gastronomic Empire -which was known as IG, under the rule of the three successive emperors, Ignacio I, Ignacio II and Ignacio III –the Ignacios- being the Ignacian wars a serie of otherwise unrelated conflicts, except in that they where fought by –or against- the Ignacian, being made several alliances to face the IG.

The wars will be fought in Aels, Zarhuy and Hieyoks.

One of the more persistent and permanent enemies of the IG; who will always take part of the anti-Ignacian alliances, will be Bazikstan, who will be ones to carry the most of the burden in these wars.

During most of the Ignacian wars –the first 50 years- the bazik army was badly trained, worse equipped, outdated and severly outclassed by their foes, with bad discipline, corrupt and incompetent offuiers, divided command, shattered by tribal and national rivalries and low moral, meeting one defeat after other. It was said, the only quality of the bazik armies of that age, was their quantity.



Old, old, ooooold drawing of 2000!! Wow, how time flies XD
I was in my 5th year of school back then!

Here, a Bazik cavalry charge against an armored column of the Ignacian. After many slaughters of cavalry units, who couldn’t do anything against the Ignacian tanks with their spears and sabers, they where equipped as well with grenades and improvised demolition charges, that they where to use, riding behind the enemy tanks –or flanking them- to try to destroy them.

wooden toy horses are wooden toy horses. XD

It's a rather small tank. They were carrying bags full of grenades/explosives. A "field solution" to face the Ignacian tanks!

These last two pics are strong--STRONG evidence that your skill with drawing horses has improved greatly!

 

Little tanks like these might well be vulnerable--but even some older tanks in the real world could be pretty fast!  That would be hard to flank, hard to draw a bead on.  Tanks are so useful, but are also expensive!  But raising and training a horse and rider isn't easy either...

Indeed, horse and rider isn't easy to train either!

I like how you drew the little horsies :D But too bad for those riders, they don't seem well prepared for a modern war.
