Hey Brothers, odd request: 

 

Would anybody be able to snip the few descriptions of Jaya D'Arcus' second(third/fourth)hand Knight Castigator during her scenes in Master of Mankind? I only have an audio copy and trying to scrub that vs. pages seems maddening.

 

I recall its cobbled together with patchwork and bare metal but anymore specifics i cant remember. Any time saver would be appreciated but I'll just reread it if necessary since its a great book! biggrin.png

Had a quick glance over the book and there doesn't seem to be any further details given. The first description of her Castigator is:

"Torolec looked at the towering war machine in all its bleak glory. Where proud and bright house colours should show, only bare and scratched metal met the eye. Where war banners should hang, depicting the Knight's own deeds and the honourable service of is scion pilot, there was nothing at all. Soon they would march to war in these cast-offs amd jury-rigged exiles from still-living houses, amd do battle for the first time without Vrridion's pennants marching in the wind."

Hope this helps.

Wonderful thank you! I knew it wasn’t much to go on but didn’t want to miss out on any interesting details.

Thanks a ton Brother!

It does mention that all the suits they were given were battered and dented also.

They were repainted before the march to the gate:

Not long after Zephon joined this lobo-chipped convoy, they were joined by the tall and striding forms of House Vyridion. The great Knights shook the stone chambers and corridors with their thunderous march, and Zephon felt his bleak heart stir at the sight of Jaya and her war court. Gone was the gunmetal grey and bare steel of the unpainted dregs-machines donated and begged from other houses. Zephon might have expected the blue-green of their former heraldry, but this too was absent. Vyridion’s armour plates had turned black and gold, and while they lacked the banners of their past deeds, they once more showed a sigil on their tilting shields: the Imperial aquila symbolising the unity of Terra and Mars. The simplest, purest symbol they could have chosen.
Looking at the monstrous form of Baroness Jaya as she strode over and ahead of him, Zephon kindled a shared vox-link.
‘Vyridion marches,’ he said with a faint smile.
‘Vyridion marches,’ came the crackling reply.
The lead Knight turned, a great bronze aquila hanging on chains from its bolt cannon swaying with the motion, and sounded its alarm horn through the stone hallways. It was answered by the horns and klaxons of every other Knight in the procession as House Vyridion celebrated its march.
