Military Preferences: Realistic, or Futuristic?
Join to comment
 Group admin 
So, let's face it, there are quite a few ways to build a military MOC, either realistic, with different modern day weapons and the like. Or, futuristic, custom weapons vehicles etc etc. I prefer futuristic because I have the pieces for it, and it's fun to create the weapons and stuff. What's your opinion?

For me, it's something in between. I don't really like to build military battles from nowadays but futuristic is quite unreal (I like Star Wars fight, though). I prefer the era from 2030-2050 if we look at the prosperity of the western countries. Can you call that futuristic now?

Hey Noah! You're doing good things here! This is how every 'additional' admin in our branches should work!

Honestly, I haven't done any military builds (yet!). But I'd go more towards the futuristic style that's closer to star wars. :D

Thanks TX! Glad to hear I'm living up to expectations :D I sort of have experience in the whole admin/mod position, I was a moderator in SWLC (Star Wars Lego Creations), the third largest group on the pages ;)

Haha, futuristic is a lot of fun to build in, I don't do to much star wars though : all my stuff is custom and made up from my own imagination :) (it usually revovles around an oppressive "empire" and a rebelion :p)

I haven't done a whole lot of star wars either. But it would be similar. So for me it's futuristic!

Personally, i prefer modern (contemporary) builds, but i do often invent my own 'next generation' version of the build i am making - mostly out of lazyness to avoid the accuracy-issue when building vehicles similar to existing ones :-D

I prefer both modern and WW2 themed builds, realistic ofcourse.

And if you like battleships, check out this thread: http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/1981-the-world-of-warships-modern-battleship-design-commitee/

I like all military creations but my favorite are future and near future. Near future is basically modern with a few new realistic technologies. I have alot of this kind of MOC.

Since I started (and just finished) reading about WWII, it's fun to build B-17s and P-51s.

I love to build realistic, already excisting guns. I'm currently working on a massive M82A1, I'm just waiting for my parts to arrive.

I say Modern to futuristic. I have finished a aircraft carrier that looks like a ship on Ace Combat 6.

Yes, the Manta will be awesome. I perfer futuristic enough that I can bend modern tech but not super far fetched. You wont ever find me building Covanent stuff from Halo.
Call it Post-Modern if you want, thats essentially what it is.

For me it differs a bit but i stay within the modern range. Scale models, 'my take' versions or 'next versions'.

I do mostly modern or near future since some technologies that are only prototypes would be cool to have.
