Infantry Update 1

Hello once again, and welcome to another DI update. This update is all something that I've been trying to avoid for as long as possible due to it being a total pain in the ass to do: New Infantry Models! W00t! So without further ado, let's get on with the update!


WEA Legionaire

Named in reference to the members of the feared ancient Roman legions as well as due to their intensive training with the Foreign Legion, the Legionnaires hold up to their name. They are the basic infantry of the WEA and are most commonly armed with light machine guns linked to their integrated HUD systems (hailing from past European combat systems such as the FÉLIN), which they can effortlessly wield due to their armoured exo-suit. Additionally, in urban battles and when their commander sees fit, Legionnaires can be issued grenade launchers with incendiary grenades to effectively damage and clear buildings. Additionally they are equipped state of the art military grade laptops, that allow them to hack into and capture enemy structures.

WEA Phalanx

WEA Railgun technology has seen many breakthroughs in recent years, and their most recent breakthrough places this technology directly in the hands of their infantry. When WEA High Command demanded updated dedicated anti-tank weaponry, many came to showcase their designs, but ZTech took the cake with their portable rail-rifle concept. After refining the railgun to be as light and cheap as possible, the so-called "Railrifle X-4" was introduced to the grunts of the WEA AT division in 2043, and thus the Phalanx was born. The technology advancements of the Phalanx don't just stop at their weapon, their battlesuits are an advanced project by the Cynopolies Nano-Engineering division, developed as an alternative to exosuits. Equipped with special nano-fibers capable of augmenting the trooper's physical strength, it allows them to carry the still relatively heavy railrifle, without the bothersome feeling normally associated with wearing an exosuit. In addition, the Nano-fiber cape they wear is designed to act as a shield against shell explosions and shrapnel, giving Phalanxes a far greater survivability against tank gun fire then regular grunts. While their hooded appearance and long rifles makes them look like snipers, Phalanx soldiers lack the marksmanship training making them ineffective against infantry and aircraft.

WEA Lancer

As aircraft become more and more advanced, so do the weapons built to eliminate these "pests of the sky". The Lancer Missile System is the latest "man-portable sam site" developed by the WEA. After going through a few failed prototypes, including AA photon cannons, Ztech enginners stuck with a design made up of an oversized missile fired from a simple shoulder mounted launcher coupled with an advanced miniature radar and targeting system worn like a backpack. As usual, WEA infantry exo-suits allow the "Lancers", as they've been called, to carry these monsters and their ammunition with ease, and the explosives packed into one Lancer missile offer quite an explosive punch against aircraft.

Well that's all we have for this update.

Very nice infantry models, even though the missile looks a tad bit too big for the Lancer, but awesome nonetheless! Oh and something minor; IIRC "Legionnaires" are specifically part of the Foreign Legion, while the proper term for an ancient Roman soldier would be "Legionary".

And I'm also wondering, how much do you guys think is left for the first release because I'm itching to use these boys! ...Not in a that sort of way. But I'm also itching to see what you guys have in store for the other factions.

The Phalanx's Face needs some quality but still it's awesome

Also little Question:
Is the Pretorian Guard capable of hitting aircraft?

You won't need that much of quality, its great enough to see as it is, since you'll be playing 'not in super close to the feet combat' zooming schit. Not trying meant it in bad way tho smile.gif

And still, its great to see those infantry model tho Zeke.

I thought about that too, however most of the Phalanx, especially his face, is covered by his cape majority of the time, so adding any more details would be pointless.

The helmet from the Legionnaires and the Lancer Looks similar to the ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper) helmet

Nice but I don't think the Phalanx is a suitable name for that sniper; I think that name would be more attributable for a defensive unit (though most Phalanxes were used surprisingly aggressively historically).

Just because the geniuses in murica's army decided to name a defensive oriented weapon as phalanx doesn't mean everyone has to be that stupid as well. The Greek phalanx was what won Alexander his empire. The fact that our Phalanx uses a large rail rifle to IMPALE his targets makes it a good name choice.

I was interested to see how you guys would tackle the infantry and what sort of style you would go for. Certainly didn't disappoint and I love the visors especially, nice work smile.gif

That's the Macedonian Phalanx, not the Greek Phalanx, which is primarily a Shield Wall of heavy infantry, and yes, a defensive formation.

FYI, the Macedonian Phalanx involves bigger spears and smaller shields, and it wasn't Alexander's trump card, that would be the Companion Cavalry, so that more or less ruins your whole arguement.

On the grounds of whether the name "Fits" for an anti-tank infantry using railguns, I'd have to say it's still a yes, even if it's not the same kind of phalanx.

Alexander. Never thought he would enter our forums. Yeah it was the companion cavalry that won him his empire but he also learned the lessons of the phalanx from his father before he was assassinated.

Here phalanx sounds very suitable.
