Your creations really remind me of old RTS games like Red Alert. I imagine those soldiers are clearing the 'fog of war' right now.
That is amazing. I didn't think of this MOC that way, but I like that visualization. I used to love the old Command and Conquer RTS's (I probably spent way too much time playing RA2). I guess I am subconsciously influenced.

To everyone, thank you for the comments. To Areetsa: Agreed, if I had more bley, perhaps I could have done more of a landscape, alas, that is almost all of my bley plate collection. To Horatius: good thinking about the low gravity situation in which larger gear wouldn't be such a hindrance. Tis what I was going for!
Great work on the squad. I like the heavy gear that would be akward on full-gravity environments, and the suit that gives the picture of far off space with the terrain. The new tank color is also impressive, along with the setting.
