The Navy of the Celestian Empire is the brainchild of Empress Shinzua, who as Speaker of the fleets quickly moved to control all aspects of nautical warfare in addition to her originally more prosaic areas of responsibility. The Empire is considered a global naval power, especially after their victories at Tsushima and Myeongnyang during the Anglo-Russian Korean Expedition. All of the coastal nations of the Empire design, build and crew their own sea-going vessels, but all ultimately serve the Blazing Sun. Warships are a source of great pride within the Empire, and the expansion of their borders necessitates deploying them more visibly, something that has been welcomed by the Empire's Admiralty.

The Imperium war machine is built upon a single concept - efficiency. Having the right weaponry for an engagement is often the key to victory and having access to all manner of different ship configurations allows an Admiral access to what she needs, when she needs it. With widespread rail networks extending from Prussia to the other Germanic nations of the Imperium, the navy (known as the Kaiserliche Marine) decided to equip a new generation of warships and support vessels with compatible gauge rails to allow weaponry and goods to be easily changed in short order. This allows the Imperium to be responsive to the needs of the operation at hand without having to go to the cost or lengthy construction times of creating specific ships to fill those requirements. Should a vessel be needed to bombard an enemy shore battery, then a Blucher cruiser can be modified to create an Augustus Bombardment Cruiser in less than a day. At the Wilhelmshaven Imperial Shipyard, the record stands for the refitting of the warship Stralsund. The cruiser had arrived fresh from hunting corsairs off the coast of Heligoland three hours earlier. In those few hours the yard crew removed her (still steaming) Volt Gun Batteries and installed a Gustav Heavy Bombard in their place.

Drum of the Nautilus

The Drum of the Nautilus is sure to find its way to the Wrath of the Nautilus Detachment - some players will be certain it was meant to be. Whether you’re planning on playing a game of Wild West Exodus, or preparing for Lost World Exodus, this highly detailed resin miniature will be your right-hand Drum on the tabletop.

Pre-order now from Wayland Games or from your FLGS.

Lost World Exodus: Drum of the Nautilus Box

Drum of the Nautilus A   Drum of the Nautilus B

Drum is naturally very resilient, having a 'skin' of thick brass and copper and its strength is that of ten men. While seemingly a gentle giant where the crew of the Nautilus are concerned, he has no compunction in enthusiastically defending himself or his allies in combat. Drum can often be found stationary on the bridge of the Nautilus in an unending vigil, though if the word is given he is happy to venture off the vessel and join the crew in their adventures on land or as part of a boarding party. The Captain's favourite trick is to have Drum walk along the seabed to the far side of a ship while the ship's Chowkidar marines begin boarding actions, only for Drum to ascend on the far side of the enemy deck and cause havoc from this unexpected quarter.
