NWI Statesman Militia by Pyrosity NWI Statesman Militia by Pyrosity
This guy is an example of the civilian militia forces that fought to protect the NWI on it's home turf in the United States at the end of the Third War, and who conducted insurgent operations against the occupying AFM forces. Outfits were generally civilian clothing of the area with police-grade tactical gear.

The rifle next to him is a KCA M-12S (S for "short", which was more common than the "long" version), a civilian rifle usually issued by militia groups to their members.

Though the term "Statesman" technically may refer to any member of the NWI forces, it is most commonly applied to these troops.


I'm kind of annoyed by this drawing. The top half is alright but the bottom half (namely the legs and the rifle) are pissing me off, they don't look right. Oh well, it's a really small drawing in comparison to most and more of a study on what these guys are gonna look like.

Probably 7.62x51mm NATO or something very similar. It's comparable in function and purpose to an M-14.

good idea, great cartridge, however it all depends on when you set your art at. If its post 1955 then yeah good idea, before hand, it didn't even exist. I like what you are trying to do, and if its like some alternate WWII go for. However, I like it to be as realistic as possible to enhance the art/story. History major, it gets under my skin, the little things you know.

It works out; the fiction is an alternate history, but it branches at 1989. I usually do a decent amount of looking up to check things, as I like it to be fairly believable. I understand your reason for nitpicking ;)

hmm, neat looking outfit on this guy^^ I like the unique looking rifle he's carrying too =)

hmm so have you completly turned to drawing humans now or do you draw them to give these outfit drawings a standard norm to go after? (sorry for the hideously bad expaination =P)

Yeah, pretty much the fact that starting uniforms/outfits/gear on a human is much more adaptable.

Thanks! :)

I like this guy. He somehow says "I'm a civilian, but I can still kick your ass to hell and back."
