Welcome to the DecembAR update! New soldiers join our roster!
Note: Click images for big.
Out with the old GDI Soldier placeholder, in with the new and complete Allied GI! Modeled, textured, and finally in-game, the Allied GI is ready for some action! Created by One Winged Angel and Romanov together, the GI makes up the core of the Allied infantry. For close quarters combat, GIs are armed with the MPK5. Taking a more defensive position, GIs may also deploy a protective ring of sandbags around them and open fire with the FN Minimi Para.
The Allied GI marks another completion to the RA2:AR infantry roster, as well as a huge milestone for the team. It feels great in-game, it's fitting of the Red Alert 2 style, and just looks badass.
Hailing from Soviet-aligned Iraq, the infamous Desolator makes his appearance! Equipped with the dangerous rad-cannon and protected by his radiation suit, the Desolator is a potent anti-infantry unit. Firing a concentrated beam of radiation from the shoulder-mounted rad-cannon, the Desolator can melt away enemy personnel and wipe out entire squads. Additionally, the Desolator can deploy his rad-cannon and make a toxic environment for the enemy. While having to be immobile to do so, a deployed Desolator offers area-of-denial, forcing the enemy to rethink their advances.
Desolator model and rad-cannon model created by Romanov.
New Team Member
True to our word of always hiring new team members, devilslayersbane has recently been hired onto our staff. Given the task to produce a new Portable Flak Cannon, devilslayersbane set out to do just that and presented our Soviet Flak Trooper with a new toy. Project Leads One Winged Angel and moonsense715 were thoroughly impressed and had to show us internally for opinions and thoughts. Needless to say, we absolutely approved of it and welcomed him aboard with open arms.
Official joining as a Modeler, devilslayersbane will be a valuable addition to the Apocalypse Rising team and to our W3D Hub staff.
