About this creation
Coming straight from the Roman Empire (with a little detour by several eras), this is the Testudo Class APC, inspired from the famous battle formation of the same name.



The back :


It opens and holds the 6 troopers AND the turret:




The crew:

From left to right and from past to future:

Centurion Caius, gunner and commander of the squad
Legionary Gaius, driver, both from first century B.C.
Sven, a young, fearless Viking from 8th century
Sir Gontran, a French knight from 11th century
Aliya, a left-handed Afghan assassin from 15th century
Jimmy, a scout of the U.S. Cavalry, from 19th century
Howard, an English sniper from 20th century
and Jane86, an elite soldier of the Blacktron Federation, from the 25th century

And now, the turret!

Quoting Sean Burns This is awesome! Love the design, love the colours, love the theme! I will miss your music themed nation, but this one is going to be cool!
Who knows, maybe it will get "up from the ashes" one day? I must say I miss General Malaise's extruded mad eyes! :D

Quoting Stuart Lucas I have to say I love this concept, you're going to have great fun with armies drawn from throughout history! The testudo is a great idea too, and the emerging turret tops it off perfectly. Super build!
Thank you much Stu! The main idea is indeed to have fun!

You are a GO for DA3 CAT4. Make sure its on your ORBAT correctly. Why did you include a hot chick in a black space suit? What are you really all about Remmy?

Quoting Pico van Grootveld Liking the concept, fresh take for sure. That opening hatch on top with the t-shirt launchers popping out is gold!

Quoting P. Andrei Best concept so far, this is simply brilliant.

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Very clever piece of Roman punk, Tomm! As for Mr. Rutherfford's question, just as foods are generally improved by either salt or chocolate (and sometimes both), MOCs are generally improved by a hot chick in a black space suit.
My thought exactly :-)

Quoting Zach Sweigart Awesome! I love the medieval feel and color to it.
Thanks Zach!

Quoting Zach Lucia Last I checked Rome fell, I don't think you should be basing your designs off of poor countries like that that accomplished nothing. You should base your designs of proper countries, like Zimbabwe! Great build!
I promise the next one will be based on Andorra army.

Quoting Mark B. Haha! Now that is pure awesomeness. You executed the theme perfectly, and the pop-up gun is a great "bonus" feature.
Thanks Mark! The whole idea also popped out of my mind at once!
