Project: LEGION XTRO: THAFiE
« on: 07 August 2021, 17:14:35 »
Wow, look at how long it has taken for me to get to this point.  I started this journey off as just a lucky mercenary outfit that found a store houses of Royal grade equipment when the first TRO came out with those machines in it.  Then I changed things up and shifted to a full blown faction in a rewrite I did while on Deployment to Iraq to deal with ISIS.  I have been working on this since about 2014.  I took the plunge when Marauder648 convinced me to reach out to Matt Plog who designed some amazing vehicles and suits of armor for my project and Stefano Marinetti did an amazing job of the characters, uniforms and rank structure.  Some barrowed cannon art tossed in as place holders until I can get the last couple of designs redrawn with new non-cannon variants as I want them.  I got to barrow some amazing designs from Marauder648 and Maingunnery.  I want to thank Marauder648, Maingunnery, Wrangler, Red Pins, truetanker, David CGB and DOC_Argen for all of the motivational support, interest in my project and even design help with several pieces.  DOC_Argen designed the rifle on the light battle armor after just seeing the picture in the art thread and sent it to me.  It will be included in the updated version of this later when I figure out how to write it up and format it lol. 

[EDIT] Also I can't believe I forgot but also would like to thank Cannonshop and DragonCat. Love their work it's always a great break from the grind of writing.

Thank You everyone and Please enjoy: XTRO: Terran Hegemony-in-Exile

[EDIT] NEW VERSION 2.0 LINK BELOW

It makes reference to a Field Manual Terran Hegemony. Is that still in progress, or is it already out?

Already out in text based.  Should be in the link in my bio.  However I will be working on a updated version in adobe InDesign like I did with this project.

For anyone looking here is the link to all of the other completed work.  Book three which is in the thread on my signature is still in process and won't be added until I finish it.

What I can read is really, really good.  I'd like to spend more time on it right away, but can't.  Well done!

As a quibble, I'd like to suggest more background in the book about the AU itself, though like I said I can't spend enough time on it to finish reading it cover to cover right now.

I'd also like to pout, and suggest you and Marauder648 need to do the layout on my next projects.  I can't help but wish I had the kind of time and effort available to you guys, but until I retire it seems unlikely.

Yeah the background is in all of the stories FM and little updates.  Link below.

I plan on redoing the FM to this standard as well.  It's in dire need of an update.  I might do a source book to overlay the era and relationships and such but not sure about my time..  the layout for this wasn't hard to do.  I narrowed from FM 3150 and tweaked a bit.  I used this project to teach me Adobe InDesign.

Thanks bud.  I was excited to work on this and I can't wait until I can release the version 2 or update or whatever it will be called with the rest of the cannon images replaced and some other planned additions.

Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you know that version 2.0 of XTRO: Terran Hegemony-in-Exile Armed Forces have been released and the link is updated.  Please feel free to download and comments are always welcomed.  This version has added 4 new designs and has replaced all of the Art for the Society OmniMechs with variants used exclusively by the HAF.  In addition, 2 new scenes have been added to the end in as a bonus but also B&W versions have been inserted as art.  The goal was to make one of them a cover piece but I was really bad about that.  Expect me to stop being bad and update it later.

Oh I am sure I will need another editing pass lol.  With the updates to Illustrator and how long its been since I worked on it last, I was having a hell of a time finding the options lol
