Para Bellum Reveals the Centaur Avatara for Conquest

A massive humanoid torso crowns the baroque, armored equine monstrosity of the Centaur Avatara, bristling with arms each carrying a deadly blade. Scoffing at the notion of partnership with another being, but keenly aware of the advantages of cavalry upon the field, Spires created the Centaur iterations of the Avatara to mimic the original knights, the companions and equites of the Old Dominion.

To date, these have been reserved for only the eldest and most powerful elders of the Lineages. Their recent presence on the western battlefield can only bode ill for the Hundred Kingdoms as these hoary monsters shed millennia of ennui and rekindle their bloodlust and interest in battle.

Para Bellum Reveals New Founder’s Exclusives!

Para Bellum has revealed three new Founder’s Exclusive model kits for 2021. See what you can get and pre-order them so you don’t miss out!

Founder’s Exclusive 2021 Spires: The Legacies of the Ark

Sculpted by Michael Kontraros, our Spire Founder’s Exclusive – The Legacies of the Ark – depicts a Lineage Highborn Elder in all his twisted glory. His Avatar projection, already a masterpiece of biomantic expertise, has been enhanced by its rider with proprietary knowledge available only to his Lineage, resulting in an inhumanly efficient killing machine that mirrors the twisted psyche of its owner.

This Founder’s Exclusive depicts a Lineage Highborn, his complex and ornate Avatara Projection clearly signaling his Elder Status. This model can thus be fielded as a Lineage Highborn, and is especially appropriate to represent an Elder of his lineage gifted with the Legacies of the Ark Supremacy Ability.

Sculpted by the Para Bellum team, our Dweghom Founder’s Exclusive – The Mountain Stands – depicts a Hold Raegh Warlord leading his Combat Retinue vested in the full panoply and glory of his hold.
