Allies AA gun has wrong unit picture

Postby AquaAbyss » Fri May 19, 2017 7:59 pm

The allies/USA's AA gun, the Bofors 40, looks more like an artillery gun in the units picture because it has two wheels and doesn't have a rotating turret. A real AA gun in WWII should have 4 wheels and a turret that rotates otherwise it seems historically inaccurate to have an AA gun looking like and artillery gun. Also if you search the Bofors 40 on the internet it has 4 wheels an a turret that can rotate so I would advise to change the units picture.

A (Plastic model of) German captured AA, but it has the best angle I could find. ;)

Maybe there is some way we can collaborate on this one to finish it faster and with good quality? :)

Also unit sizes are 64 x 64 right :?:

How far are you in finishing the AA gun? Don't rush it if your not close just wandering.

I started from the wheels, and went on to platform, but it may be too 2D-ish

My 2nd try is starting to look more 3D.

I think I'm getting better at this. :)

How far have you gone though?
