Boom, headshot.
Strictly speaking, the average Exersus soldier is actually more highly trained than the average Imperial soldier. This comes about from a variety of factors, such as a history of combat due to personal predilections, having to survive pursuit by Imperial forces, and of course the in-house training of Exersus itself (a lot of which has been modeled off of the regime Enko instated for her special forces group).

However, the average palace guard is still more dangerous than the average Exersus soldier, and the Stradville forces have significantly superior numbers than the Exersus units outside the barrier.

  1. Fascinating skeletal anatomy on that third soldier.
    Or this guy has a really sharp sword.

    Also: Wha happen to the bodies?

  2. Rarely do small battles feel so realistic (besides the bodies thing). After reading a lot of webcomics, you get used to nobody taking a scratch. I really like the little things, like how the leader fired his fancy crossbow before getting behind the swordsmen.
    You really get the sense that he just COULDN’T RESIST that easy shot. XD

  3. Hard for me to follow the combat here; it’s just… confusing what is happening and who it’s happening to.

    If Excursus soldiers are better trained, but palace soldiers are more dangerous, is that because the palace soldiers just have better equipment, or is there some other factor that I’m missing?

  4. I think he meant normal Imperial soldiers aren’t as well-trained. Palace soldiers are the bestest of ‘em all.

  5. Gremlin, this is a fantasy story. The palace guards SUCK in fantasy stories. Especially the bad guys’.
