1920s Soldier by ramida-r 1920s Soldier by ramida-r
1920s Soldier

I don't think I've ever painted so fast before in my life…I need a short break before I do the other classes. Phew! But thanks to all the favs and kind comments I have been getting for Scout, it's helped spur me on.

Since rocket launchers didn't come around until the Second World War, I had to kinda make one up based on cannons from WWI, so historians and gun enthusiasts please don't skin my hide.

This one goes out to my friend ~Dizuni-san who has completed a lifetime achievement of sending a certain someone we know to respawn with the stroke of his riding crop and sending me a video of it for my amusement.

For other 1920s class(es):
Scout: [link]
Engineer: [link]
Sniper: [link]

Heavy: [link]
Medic: [link]

You could'v used a mortar, particularly, a hand-mounted version of the french "Mortier de 58 mm type 2", or "Crapuillot", as they called it:

What makes it even worse is that Soldiers always forget about us, and so we're always being stranded in contested area while the Soldier safely flies away.

It's good, although it would make sense more if he had a Entrenching tool- if this is set after/during WWI, Soldier would carry a shovel because they were very, very effective melee weapons in the trenches.

Beautiful and well done collection. I apparently really enjoy wardrobes from the 1920's. :faint:
It hurts me to favorite just one but I hate being a +fav spammer.
Keep up the amazing work!

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight!

"Sun Tzu said that! And I'd say he knows a little more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it! And then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor!

"Then he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on Earth! And then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one!

[chuckle] "And from that day forward, any time a bunch of animals are together in one place, it's called a 'tzu' 'zoo'!

"...Unless it's a farm!"

This running idea of doing them in the 1920s is very interesting, and quite original. :D I like the brown and orange look you give them all, as it gives it that typical 1920s feel to it.

I absolutely love Solly to death, and I am loving this picture. The expression of his face is just spot on, and I love all of the little details. It makes me think of a quote from a TF2 fancomic on here that I like, "Why is the Disciplinary Action a thing??" I can't wait to see the other classes. =D
