WWII-Modern Units

Postby Coriolanus » Sat Feb 15, 2014 6:54 pm

These are most of my WWII-modern era units, although some of them could be used in a space era battle as well. (I don't have any full, fleshed out factions, at least not yet, just individual units I can swap around to make armies for different battles.)

Right now I only have two vehicles in this era, the first is the Wirbelwind.
Image

Modeled after the German Wirbelwind (Wirlwind) mobile anti-aircraft gun from WWII. (I don't have any tank tracks so I just have sprockets and roadwheels and call it close enough.)

Image

A slightly fuzzy view from the front.

Image

Top view showing the distinctive turret shape that was such a pain to imitate.

Image

Rear view.

Image

Another front view. The quad-mounted auto-guns are devastating against infantry squads.

Image

Close-up of the front hull. I kind of like how the front vision block turned out.

Image

Close-up of the turret. The angles took a really long time to get right.

Armored Car. I modeled this loosely off the M8

Image

It is armed with a main gun, an auto-gun on the ring mount, and a bow-mounted flamethrower.

Image

Front view.

Image

Top view. The ring mount is a flexible tube from an old Technic set.

Image

Rear.

Image

With commander.

Image

This is an updated machine gun from the previous pictures. I got the ammo drum idea from someone on this forum, I'm not sure who.

Infantry

Image

Winston Churchill with Tommies

Image

Young Churchill. (Boer War)

Image

Elite urban infantry. Brickarms weapons, Brickforge helmets and armor. (These are an expensive eight figs)

Image

Basic infantry

Image

Somali gunmen

Mafia

Led by the God-Grandfather

Image

Heavy machine gun, modeled elegantly by a mercenary.

Image

He looks excited.

Image

Aussies

Image

Rangers. The berets, armor, and most of the weapons are Brickforge.

Image

Marine heavies with size 2 M1919 machine guns.

Image

Brickforge backpack and helmet, Brickarms M1919.

Image

Ski troops.

Image

The A-Team!

Image

Front view of B.A.'s van.

Law enforcement

Image

SWAT team with Brickwarriors riot shields, Brickforge helmets and armor, and Brickarms weapons.

Image

Without riot shields.

Image

Texas Rangers

Image

And some normal cops.

Impressive. I really like the Tommies, I've been planning on building a squad or two of similar figs for my army.

At first I thought the turret looked odd, but then I looked up the actual thing.

Image

You did really good with the modeling.

Also the infantry is all very nice. Must have been very expensive.

Everything about these units is awesome. Love the use of President Business's head on that merc, by the way.
