Brittanian Envoy

Some foreshadowing on my imminent Prussian campaign, enjoy.

The inevitable had finally happened. During an expedition into unknown space, the Brittanian navy encountered the young Empire of New Prussia, which recognized their vessel as a Brittanian one and for once chose not to attack.


Brittania's forces were preoccupied with modernization at the time and already stretched quite thin (As stated by Warhead). Thus, the Brittanians chose to send a small envoy to the planet to obtain and maintain a trade agreement over conquest.


Brittanian Heavies, as designed by Silent Sigfig.


"The Scotsman", leader of the envoy, is somewhere in between an officer and a diplomat.


While agreeing to the mutually beneficial trade agreement, Der Kaiser stressed his wishes for his Reich to remain completely neutral in military terms and wished to see no Brittanian soldiers on his planet save for the small symbolic force led by the Scotsman. To further relations, the Scotsman has offered to use his soldiers to aid the Prussians in the exploration of the still much undiscovered planet.


The All-Rounders are cricket players (something Brittania has an abundance of) mobilized into the army and fitted with cybernetic implants to become faster, stronger, and overall more mean. Research on them has been going on for a while but now they have been perfected and finalized and are highly effective shock troops. Sir Bragallot, the Prussian inventor, has taken a great interest in these cyborgs. It is rumoured he is the one who ordered the Sky Marshal to call off the attack when the Brittanians first entered Prussian space, but since little is known of him even by the Prussian populace itself no one can be really sure.

Oooooooo your Prussians look like my Royal Space Marines NCOs.  Those old firemen torsos are great for Steampunk uniforms.

On the map I've drawn up of the Britannian League I'd marked out an area for the Prussian Hegemony due to there being Germanic interest in the Lost Valley on Dinoreich.  It all seems to fit very nicely doesn't it?  :D


Edit:  Absolutely love the All-Rounders btw.  :D

Yeah those Prussian soldiers were quite recently put together because I scrapped some other designs I had going that weren't working out and thus freed up some parts. They're the Jaegers, something of an Imperial Guard, and I like how they turned out. I have a larger number of different uniforms than I ever thought I'd make in one army but the main bulk of the Prussian soldiers will be more like these:


@ Silva: the Prussians wish to remain neutral under all circumstances for now but since this will eventually put them at odds with the Immortals they'll likely be forced to join the alliance at some point, just not yet ;)

@ White Nun: Those troops look excellent! Austrians? 8)

If you're interested the Jaegers were equipped with stuff that was first meant to make some Brittanian Redcoat/Grenadier types but I thought they didn't work out too well.

That said, those troops don't look alike at all Warhead, you must be hallucinating! ;)

Yes they're Austrians.  The helmets are meant to be WW1 style issue rather than WW2 helmets, only I chickened out when it came to heat deforming the brim into the WW1 shape.  The shirts are repainted Indiana Jones Russian army shirts and the guys in Winter kit are based on Mega Bloks torsos and legs & etc.
