A. French Infantryman (1914)
during the second Franco-Prussian war the French army was rather unimpressive, they were too slow to take on the newly discovered fields in technology and magick, and when they did incorporate new firearms, tanks, and trained soldiers in the arcane arts, their commanders had little to no idea how to put them into play properly. they'd put their combat mages right in with all the other gun-toting soldiers and machine gun crews, often times ending in catastrophic results. a mage would cast a spell, bust since he just so happened to be around a squad of riflemen or next to a machine gun crew, spells would malfunction or backfire, guns would jam or outright explode in their user's hands. French high command's ignorance to the laws of magick and technology cost them dearly, and ultimately lost them the war.
B. Imperial French Automaton "Automatic Guardsman" (1918)
under Napoleon Bonaparte's rule France stands strong once more, after its crushing defeat at the hands of the German empire back in 1915. from 1916-17 France speeds its way into the world of the technological, creating marvels the world has never seen, especially so in France's armed forces. starting late 1917 the French army was put under extreme reforms as it was getting more and more automated, mass produced simple combat automatons start replacing infantrymen by the month, and advances in automata create even more specialized automaton variants such as the elite "Automatic Guardsmen", and the colossal "Emperor Class Terminator". by 1918 automatons make up the bread and butter on the French army. regiments of flesh and blood soldier are disbanded, and prominent military conservatives step down, as Automatons take up all the general purpose combat roles. the only real soldiers that were kept in service were the lucky few who were crack veterans or specialists who were then pressed into the new French special forces, the scalpel of the French army. whereas the automatons now take up the role of the hammer.
C. British Long Service Regular
shaved heads and large mustaches were the trademark look of Britain's veteran soldiers who served in the Great War, known as Long Service Regulars these were men who either chose a life career in the Royal Army or were already hardened by fighting in some of Britain's many colonial wars and imperial frontier conflicts, some of these men trace their first combat experience as far back as the Boxer rebellion and the second Boer war.
D. German Stormtrooper
crack troops made up of men from proud military upbringing just short of that of the officer elite. special equipment and discipline's the name of their game.
E. Reichsheer Alchemist
basically our average German grunt all of them are trained and equipped to use Germany's famous alchemical tonics to give them an edge in the changing combat situation.
F. United States Marine
during the second American civil war and up to today the Union state's army elites are mostly composed of the United States Marine corps. whereas the southern confederate states mostly utilize rangers.
G. Red Army Soldier
despite the Soviet Union being a technologically advanced power, due to the Red army's size they just can't equip everyone with the best stuff, instead they just train all of them in the use of their technology. so that if ever a unit is headed for battle they can just redirect all the equipment and resources needed.
