In the spirit of keeping a discussion going on these forums I would like to post the question of what is everyone's favorite unit in the AQOtMF game? This could be by design, or usefulness, or uniqueness? For me personally, it has to be the steamer tanks, particularly the Mark 2 and 3, I love World War One history and I love that this game breathed new life into these cool designs. I really love how the developer gave the appearance that a base model was improved upon and utilized for several weapons platforms, something many countries have done in the past and are continuing to do today.
I definitely agree on the original Assault Tripods. The British vehicles were a bit too sci-fi for me at first, but the great 'fluff' really helped explain the progressive tech that the BEF could field since they had captured Martian tech!
Steam tanks are a cool alternate history item. Unexpected precursor to the WW-1 tanks.. For the Martians, I agree that the Harvester tripod is the creepiest item. It makes the Martian use of humans for food more believable.
I agree about the harvester, truly terrifying to think it would just nab up people and process them like a crop. Only issue I ever had was that the model eventually destroyed itself. Mine is now a neat piece of terrain.
The Models are what got me interested in All Quiet. I sell my PaperTerrain models at HMGS conventions and when Ernie Baker announced the kickstarter, he was also selling stuff at those conventions and had the prototypes on display and I fell in love at first site.
But my favorites? Well, the tripods, of course. What’s not to like? And the models themselves are so open to modifications like putting in lights.
Or turning into wrecks.
Still, I think I like the humans’ stuff the best. I always like masses of infantry.
Or masses of tanks!
And who couldn’t like a huge, clanking land ironclad?
Still, my favorite modeling project was the Heavy Field Battery.
