Hey everybody! This is my first time building an army for Brikwars. It's based on The Great War thread which is dieselpunk/ww1. Keep in mind that the faction is still WIP and that I'll be adding commando and hero units as well as more machinery. The Duchy of Wesselheim is an island nation with Germanic cultural roots.

Image
This is the flag of the Duchy of Wesselheim. It represents the three aspects of Wesselheimian culture. The Eagle is the national animal and represents the sovereignty and might of the nation. The red represents the nation's ability to wage war and come out victorious. The red represents the purity and spirit of its people and the yellow represents its extreme wealth. Now let's get to the troops!

Image
This is the leader of the nation, Chancellor Otto Von Bricksmark. A brilliant politician and diplomat, he is endowed with the power over foreign and domestic policy. To his left is an elite Wesselheimian soldier, though I am unsure of whether he is a Royal Guard, Commando or Marine.

Image
The Habsburg infantry divisions make up the bulk of the Wesselheimian army. Despite being a basic infantry unit, they receive good equipment and training, making them efficient fighters. They are usually equipped with standard rifles. Each squad of 5 is led by a single Lieutenant, equipped with a revolver and cutlass.

Image
These men belong to the Colonial Guard, recruited from Wesselheim's possession of South Afria. Despite not being natural-born Wesselheimians, the locals are mostly loyal to Wesselheim and see the Colonial Guard as an opportunity to make money and go on adventures. This squad has a soldier equipped with an Anderson Repeating Rifle, which has a similar fire rate to an Ak-47 in slow motion. The Lieutenant of the squad is equipped with a revolver and a cutlass and is affectionately known by his Wesselheimian counterparts as: "Big Sahib".

Image
This picture features all of the auxiliary members of the Wesselheimian military. From left to right, we have a HMG unit, two combat engineers, two pilots and a radioman.

Lastly, we have the beast of the Wesselhemian ground forces. The Chaplain MK 1 tank is a force to be reckoned with. Its bulky sides offer protection while the main gun does all the talking. There is an access ramp in the back which can fit around 2 soldiers within the tank.

Bravo, I quite enjoy the industrial-army-red-shirt look. Something about Bricksmarks guard, I think the police helmet fits his look quite nicely
