A few Updates most of these are WIPs and i used a different scanner this time with less capability shall we say.Dpv.8 Zornhau:
The aircraft are named for the master strokes of German Longsword, Zornhau is the strike of wrath. The tail symbol is a stand in but I am pretty happy with the heraldry. Basically von Kliest has strong knightly traditions and those Orders saw the aerocraft as the heir to their warhorses and embraced the air service. Therefore heraldry is a standard part of their aircraft. The shield is split into three major parts. The top always will have the wolf head, which is the symbol of von Kliest itself. Behind it is the colours of the particular Duchy the unit hails from, von Kliest only recently coalesced from a bunch of semi independent (sometimes warring) duchies. In the bottom left is the Ritterorden or knightly order, which is analogous to the parent Air Group. Finally the bottom right panel is the Jasta or squadron number.Kingdom Gryphon Naval Flight Corps Pilots:
I modeled it loosely on World War 2 USAAF bomber gear. Flight cap and goggles, heavy turtleneck sweater, thick insulated pilot trousers, leather bomber jacket, insulated boots and gauntlets. Over that goes the harness for the shoulder armor, flight mask and parachute. Finally a gunbelt with a Model 58 revolver.Kingdom Royal Armory Model 58 Revolver:
Standard sidearm for Gryphon armed forces. Its a 44 caliber revolver with an underslung barrel. I basically mated two weapons I really like the look of, the Remington 1858 New Army and Mateba Autorevolver. The hammer might technically be a little out of place but it looked silly if I adjusted it. Knight:
Basically I got irritated with silly ass fantasy armor and decided to draw something a little more functional. It's still very WIP, and I'll get round to finishing her later. I'm considerin' drawing up some pictures of the various wards from Hans Talhoffer and I might use her as the model. As pictured she is in sort of a loose stance for half sword not sorta between plow and fools ward.
VIA inspired fighter:
Not particularly stoked with how it came out, but I drew it so I figured I should put it up.
