Alliance Slugger by jflaxman Alliance Slugger by jflaxman
While the Wasteland Alliance began its campaign with large stockpiles of small arms, heavier support weapons were initially in short supply. With their usual resourcefulness, militia bosses issued squads with whatever substitutes they could scavenge, steal or improvise. The resulting firearms take considerable strength and courage to use, even by the standards of troops who possess both traits in abundance. As their operators tend to draw a lot of fire in return they wear heavy armour for protection. They are best used in conjunction with more lightly equipped infantry who can quickly seize positions or outflank the enemy while the Sluggers provide covering fire.

Might we one day, perhaps, see a scene of battle between any of the three armies?

I've got a lot of character/vehicle concepts, but it's time for some epic action scenes. I'll hopefully have some early next year.

And the post has been made. Hopefully, the tumblr is alright. Should they be posted in order, most recent to oldest? Or backwards? Well, reviewing this picture. Things get far, far more detailed the closer you get. Just look at that gun. A couple things on the gun specifically; James is the kind of artist who wouldn't forget that over-extended use causes the barrel to go red hot. Second, the gun itself. I see it's been crafted into a Minigun, but it looks like only half of it is an original minigun. Maybe a light version, or somehow the Militia Bosses were somehow able to meld them with submachine guns? Sadly, I'm not a gun expert, so this might actually be a completely accurate real life heavy support weapon.

His armor, lets look at that. Amazing, when you think heavy weapons guy and armor in the same thought, you usually think ramshackle rusting armor, all metal, painted and resembling something like an Ork from Warhammer 40K. Apologies, it's a reference. But in this case, it shows the Wasteland Alliance is being serious about itself.

His armor is obviously made from scavenged parts, but it's put together well, professionally. It's leather armor, which is much more realistic if you want your heavy support unit to move himself outside of some sort of vehicle. See the difference in his boots? The Militia Bosses aren't letting their boys run around in rags and scrap, but logistics of the Alliance must be a nightmare, so matching boots must not be a concern, yes? I like the Wasteland Alliance symbol you've come up with, nice but simple. And the metal harness that keeps the ammo on his back is both extremely imaginative and quite unique.

And the mask, the mask is wonderful. Especially the bullet dings on his mask's forehead, paired with his blank eyes. It gives a statement- I am the most targeted man of my platoon, yet I don't care. I will continue to soullessly scythe you down like wheat before the harvest, until I either fall myself, or can live and rest in peace.

How was the review?
