New weapons and what not, for the Hodgepodgeians

Post by Strana » Wed Dec 16, 2009 7:53 pm

well to my astonishment my order came early so ill be able to have 2 howitzers on the field along with 2 MLRS launchers, to accompany that i also built a few new Vans and am such numbering around5 now hopefully ill have a sixth still to make.

but without further adu

a forest its not yet done (more rocks and trees long grass will be added, and river/pond)
Image
2 ruined buildings not yet complete either perfect areas for infantry to hole up and snipers to get in aggreeable sniper positions
Image
MLRS (remotely operated Multi launch rocket system)
Image
one of the new strana vans it'll be hauling an artillery peice
Image
one of the other strana vans it will be hauling an artillery peice
Image
command van with drone hauler probably has the funkiest rules of any of the stana vans, mainly there for boosting infantry moral (and firing solutions) and the tri-drones can be quite pesky
Image
heres one of the 2 artillery peices theyll be approx the same

Nicely done, I like the Command version of the StranaVan with the Tri-Drones best.

amazing, but since you have so many peices, may you could start making them all uniform/millitary like. their great designs though.

I like the designs of your army, but the colors seem random.

The Hodgepodgians are known adherents of Rainbowism.

see its quite simpal if everything is a topsy turvey spectrum of color its harder for an enemy to target said thing since he is mesmerized by the clashing colors these affects are even more profound if

Yea, but it's also hard as hell to tell what's going on in pictures. You have mass amounts of color everywhere, it's really hard to make out details that way.

It's called "Aggressive Camouflage" and it disorients other players, making their dice rolls suck.

Woah, that's a lot of stuff :shock:
However, I must agree that you should rebuild you forces and make it a little more colorized.
