just your basic British soldier. Britain wasn't able to participate much during the one year long first world war (otherwise known as the second Franco-Prussian war) so such troops who were sent off to the continent saw little action

"Otherwise known as the Second Franco-Prussian War"-man I hope that's a implication that it ended in another rapid and decisive Prussian victory: suck it France! The French robotics industry of this timeline has me pesmistic about Prussia's chances though.....

Cool stuff, I like the early WW1 peaked cap in place of a Brodie helmet, fits with the idea that Britain didn't participate in any extended warfare and thus didn't learn any important lessons.

yep it's another win for the Germans. remember this was before Napoleon took power and started the terminator projects. so the French army during the time wasn't really all the impressive. the Germans on the other hand had some pretty neat tricks up their sleeves already

that's also how Napoleon took power, using the embittered French people's emotions to his favor, kinda like what Hitler did.

hell, hardly anyone participated in extended warfare. plus i wanted to give everyone a very "early war" look so soft headgear is the norm whereas helmets are considered specialist gear

:iconawesomenessplz: :iconsaysplz: Deutschland uber alles! Speaking of Germans, I can't help but notice they are a bit under-represented in your alternate history works ;)

However, when you say Napoleon, are you refering to Bonaparte who I assume lived later on then he historically did? If so is France still a monarchy by the time of the Second Franco-Prussian War?

The "early war" theme is definitely represented here, especially when combined with that sketch of a Royal Marine you did still in the classic redcoat uniform-I just realised that also helps create an idea of traditionalist Britain against radical and revolutionary France with its robots.
