Community Highlights 47


Hello Soldiers!

It's me, you, from the future. You're going to be huge one day; the most successful artist and/or writer who ever graced the internet with their light. You'll start as most people do, with a driving passion for a game called Foxhole. They'll feature your stuff on a Community Highlights post, and all you did was post your work in the #creative-streamplug channel on discord. Then just like that, you're on your way. So don't wait. Get started on it and thank me later.

Artwork

By: Богди

The latest designs from Bogdan. If you guys haven't checked out his Artstation already, please do so. Give this guy some love. The work he does is absolutely stellar

By: Cmdr. Engi

Cmdr. Engi, you have been working on your models for Foxhole for a very, very long time. Your commitment to the game, and the art, is something that our team struggles to express, and this latest piece leaves the others behind. It's one thing for someone to put pen to paper, but to then see that come to life in the hands of another is truly humbling. Thank you.

By: Freerk

Some side-scroller action right here. This would be a cool game. Imagine a sidescroller where you could build defences and build battle lines and the enemy had to push across it... kind of like a hybrid tower-defence side-scroll action game. Get on it Freerk.

By: Freerk

And here are some sprites! By you! You're almost done!


By: Lercas

The art was done by our concept artist Julian, but the colour was added by lercas. This must have taken quite a while...


By: Insanity

I love this way more than you might think. I love the little foxhole ball scrapping in the middle, and the little vehicle balls. I'd love to see a whole map drawn out like this with little Foxball battle scenes drawn in like a Where's Waldo spread.

By: Big Mac Gaming

I'm actually most impressed by the fire and explosions you added in there. Those look really great

By: PsiroJohn

These are off-center because that was how they were saved. Don't look at me like that.


By: Rei

If you look very carefully at the sky, painted in the clouds in a slightly off-grey colour you can see the words, "traider".

Funny Stuff & Propaganda


By: Mike Object

Really love the logo. Complex in parts, but simple.


By: Padfoot

Another fine logo by our resident logosmith, this time for 82DK which looks great as always.


By: ПИҞАӋУ

This just about sums up my artillery experience as well.


By: Barrel Boi

Of course the officer leads from behind. The Colonial officer looks darned happy about it though.

By: TR_AtaOzd

Warden space program is a success. Tanks officially land on Mars. Here are also some other cute little Foxball comics.


By: Insanity

Stop them before they find the ice dragons and break through the wall!


By: OverArtDose

I'll pay 3 commends for one.


By: Pear120

It always astonishes me how many people just leave their trucks back at base for someone else to pick up. It really does go a long way and I have no idea who to commend for it...


By: Padfoot

So many zergs! So many.


By: TurtleAndRabbit

Point to where, exactly, the roof of the scrap can be found... I need to know.


By: Valiant Ghoul

And then the dude who has to transport the shells to the FOB, and then pull the shells form the FOB. Aahhh teamwork.


By: Valiant Ghoul

I sense a malcontent with our sulfur mechanics...

War Stories

War #10

Dew war stories today

Interrogation of a Colonial Soldier right before the orders of "No Quartering" had been given.


It was the Battle of FrostMarch Road. It was a bloodied and deadly battle. We had lacked supplies and had been outnumbered by Colonial Troops and Tanks. Thus we head our grounds between a broken wall and repeled the Colonial Attack long enough for support to arrive. The order given was "Not one step back!". Three people had been executed for attempting to retreat in the odds. All had the courage to fight and die than to run and be shot in the back.

By: Jeonsa Bak

"The Colonials often prattle on about their so-called 'freedoms'. But what do their 'freedoms' even amount to? The freedom for the rich to exploit the poor, the freedom for the wicked to torment the innocent, the freedom for the weak to oppress the strong? That doesn't sound like 'freedom' to me. That sounds much more like slavery, instead. Meanwhile, they claim that because we do not engage in the petty popularity contest that they call 'democracy', that we are the ones who are un-free. Look around you, brothers and sisters. Would you say that you are not free? Would you say that you are a slave to the Emperor, as the Colonials would claim? I wouldn't say so. I wouldn't say so at all. I would say that we are, in fact, more, far more free than the Colonials could ever pretend to be. Every man and every woman in the Warden Empire, every child of Callahan, is given the freedom to prove themselves, to prove their ability, their talent, and their merit. They are given the freedom to advance themselves in their life through their own skill, rather than because of how much wealth they have, or because of who their parents are, or because of who they've groveled on the ground in front of and ingratiated themselves towards. They are given the freedom to make of themselves whatever they could possibly dream. And I tell you now, brothers and sisters, that these freedoms not only make you more liberated than the weak and effete citizens of the Colonial Republic, but also make you stronger and greater than they could ever be. And these freedoms, these freedoms that have and continue to contribute to who we are, both as a nation of Wardens and as individuals, are what will win us this war against this so-called 'republic'. Now go, and bring their corrupt 'democracy' down! Bring it down and bring about a new age of honor and justice for every person living on Caoiva! Bring it down for the Emperor, and for Callahan!" -General Sean Murphy of the Warden's 7th Mooring County Division, on the eve of the Great Westgate Offensive.

I honoured my deal with the [DEV]il. We were to work for the Colonial Legions for their own benefit. So we went deep into Warden territory, and strike'd fear into their hearts. We took a truck that had ZERO supplies, and our Leader said "Let's take callahan's.... "sure bro why not" we said.

Penetrated Overlooking Hill, people started coming with Armoured Cars then helped us out in taking down Crumbling post. Then destroyed Latch, worked our way towards Lochan and finally, Solas.

This operation was not possible if it were not for Colonials who were willing to cooperate. All in all, it was a good Traid.

OCdt Kanex 6/31/18 Callahan's Passage - Crumbling post

Personal notes

Crumbling... now i get the name... now i know why they gave you that name... because you crumble... with every touch of a finger tip, you are crumbling, and the post guards have to defend you, at all cost, to prevent you from becoming a pile of ashes and dissolving into yourself.

Finally i was on my so long expected vacation, after all the fighting i could finally have a decent rest before returning to hell, clear my mind... as soon as i landed and got off the plane at the airport on my way home i started to notice everyone freezing slowly... looking at the monitors, some were by the payphones, pale, like they have seen a ghost. I knew something is not right, i rushed to the closest empty phone booth and made my call, i contacted my officers in my unit and they told me the news... "The collies have pushed towards Callahan... they took overlook hill...get here as soon as you can!" the next thing i remember i did was to rush as fast as i could to somewhat that appeared like a military pick up point, gathering zone, call it whatever you like, people started running, some were already in their uniforms, chaos took place all over, army vehicles started to show up on the runways, the airport allocated civilian airplanes to transport soldiers to the fronts.

I have found my plane, i have met some familiar faces, some which i fought with in the past, some of them i will never see again...

The flight was quite as we all knew what is coming and on the other hand we couldn't even imagine what would happen, where we are being dragged into.

As soon as we got to Callahan i teamed up with my unit, injured soldiers were all over, ammunition pulled out, medics running, officer shouting, fireteams boarding on trucks, pierced AC's in the hands of exhausted sweaty engineers and mechanics, this looked like that same old nightmare all over again, the war have started officially, the intensive fighting reached Callahan's passage once again, we can't let it fall.

The collie got deep into the heart of our home region, They took over the latch, the key, overlook hill and they were not going to stop.

We got into a tent with other units and their officers for a briefing, the situation didn't seem well but we had a plan and it was our only way to stop these filthy invaders and push them back.

After the briefing we all knew what we had to do, what our mission was.

My unit was tasked a special and crucial assignment as part of a bigger plan, and we got geared up and gone out on our way.

[C E N S O R E D] .

I finally arrived at the crumbling post, which was isolated and cutoff but standing still! so is whispering gulch, i've seen the proud and brave faces of the soldiers, they all have seen combat, some were even familiar, we quickly started to fortify evey corner we could, 360 degrees, massive barricades and fortifications, we had to get the job done and quickly. We knew we would be given the order to commence an attack and start pushing the enemy back but suddenly it became all quite... too quite, that kind of silence that... makes shivers go down you spine, and the orders stopped coming, total silence, we saw nothing at the distance and we heard nothing, hell's about to break loose, most of us knew that deep inside our minds.

And then... it began... the first howitzer shell, it fell right at the north gates of crumbling... taking out a friendly patrol of 3 soldiers, i was focusing on fortifying just a little bit south and then i heard it, i rushed to the new front and it was... hell... as expected...

The howitzers kept endlessly coming, one after another, a division of AC's was approaching, our spotter noticed a full on blitz on crumbling, we knew we might never get out of there but we stood... we knew no one is going to come, and that's how crumbling started to crumble, but eventually we kept the pieces together, no warden left the combat, we all stood side by side, shoulder to shoulder. We were outnumbered, we had minimal resources, we were cutoff, we had only basic weaponry and so little advanced ones, all we had were a few crates of grenades, a couple of launchers a few HE's, some shotguns and basically that's all, very low supply of shirts, low manpower, all the odds were against us but we stood, we didn't crumble! Callahan's spirit was burning in each and every one of us in our hearts, it was fight to death, escape and falling back wasn't an option, we stood united, Crumbling shield carriers, Callahan's grenadiers, the post watchers and the siege fighters!

All of our officers were killed or locked outside of crumbling so me and couple of other young officers had to take things under control, i started coordinating counter attacks at the flanks, keep information flowing and setup a communication line with higher ranks outside of crumbling figuring out when the cavalry is going to come... they were expected to come as soon as possible but we had no time... all of the soldiers knew this and kept fighting, they couldn't break our morale! the outside world couldn't assist us in any way at the time, we were all on our own, the reinforcement was delayed every 10-15 minutes... for about 3 hours...

I can't even start counting how many infantry we've dominated and the numerous AC's destroyed! we were outnumbered and managed to do the impossible, survive, don't let them dominate us, hold out and push the fuckers back from where they came from.

It was a bloodshed in which we lost good friends... the whole battlefield was covered in blood and combat gear, the freezing snow and the burning sun reflecting on it, howitzer shells were falling everywhere, an mg gunner in every corner you would go, grenades thrown at you out of nowhere, the defenses have fallen... the walls were breached yet they never entered into crumbling, we didn't let them, in the alleys, in the wrecked houses, we fought with our teeth, we fought to death and didn't stop until we managed to push them back. Eventually after a 3 hours long and exhausting siege they started to flee, but it wasn't good enough for us, we wanted them dead, so some of us started to chase them down, after they spilled so many resources on crumbling they had nothing left and that was our time to shine, each meter was followed by the warden footstep as the colonial retreated and their foxholes and defenses destroyed by our mighty rifle, they ran for their lives but they had no where to run, they had to deal with the consequences.

From there, we retrieved all of Callahan's passage back into our rightful hands, not giving any collie a chance for what they have done, some fought, some fled but we cleared our home of these pests! and i will make a promise, in Callahan i swear, you will never set a foot in here again.

I salute to everyone who fought and i salute to the valor of crumbling post and all 824 fallen comrades of Callahan's defensive forces during 7PM-2AM battles, you all held the pieces together, May Callahan be with you.

Fonzie and the Aussie boys 1st captured Gunboats from Oarkbreaker.

Story behind this picture:

2nd LT Fonzie was given two of the goofiest boys from Kukri. (Mini Australia on Oarbreaker), taking these lads he proceeded to bombard the entire warden coast, killing many infantry, supply trucks, and being a dickhead in general. Towards the Warden foe. Fonzie in a rush of petrol huffing madness, decided to rush the enemy docks before killing enemies preping gunboats of their own and stealing their ship. Fonzie and the Aussie boys then proceeded to rush out towards the sea, only to spot another Warden on a bit of rocks with an APC and a gunboat of his own. The boys proceeded to liberate his gunboat from him as well, introducing him to papa 14.5 while doing so. They took these two gunboats and APC which was filled to the brim with HEs. The boys returned to gallows to give their spoils to SIR Senfik as the result of a promise to give him more trophy vehicles.

left to right on the first picture.

CPL wackojacko, 2ndLT Fonzie, and PTE Nimdok. Let it be known, I'll take one Australian over five Americans any day.

This plays like a black and white war film from the 1950s


By: McBlair

I liked the part where they'd set the brracks up on the beach and were defending it from behind the sandbags. That looked like it would have been fun.


By: Varyag

This. In. Insaaaaaaaaane. Okay now community challenge: Make it bigger.


By: Lord Skrub Sauce

By: Sheepie

By: Invinsible

You one of those people into horror movies? Here's one. It's like Human Centipede crossed with Band of Brothers.


By: TheHoodiedThief Wow this is so excellently edited.... Bravo!


By: Sheepie

I love the music choices...... you nerd.

Thanks for all the great stuff guys! Especially the videos this week. There were a lot of really good videos in here that we wanted to show off during the devstream, but there were just too many. You guys are amazing. And for the love of golly-jeebs use the proper format for the War Reports. It took me ages trying to figure out which ones belonged in each war. Okay. So long!

Yours,

KrazyFlyinChicken
