Disclaimer: this picture was found on this blog post by a friend. I fell in love with it and asked a friend who makes miniatures if she could ask on some forums if anybody knows where it came from. Sadly nobody came forward, so I cannot give due credit. So if you made this or know who did, please email me so I can give credit.
I decided to write for it anyway as it inspired me so much, so I hope you approve.

"Second Pike battalion to f6," boomed Tyrant. A servant moved a piece on the board before them.
Tyrant looked down at his hand, adorned with a metal bracelet, a large chariot and driver standing up from it, reins leading to four rings, each with a raise horse head. He slammed his hand down onto a peak on the board, a perfect replica of one valley in the kingdom.

Ash looked up, dread settling in his stomach. A troop of Chariots moved into the biggest open gap. He couldn't get Aire to safety now. He couldn't protect her now.
