XCOM: The Pink Squad by SirTiefling XCOM: The Pink Squad by SirTiefling
The XCOM's elite all-girl "Pink Squad" has just eliminated its 1st Sectoid alien! Every dude has always been KIA in their first mission, so that makes this lady commando team "the Elite".

UFO: Enemy Unknown (also known as X-COM: UFO Defense) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UFO:_Ene… was the BESTEST game EVEEERR!!! How's the Firaxis remake/reboot en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XCOM:_En… going to survive against the legacy? We'll see....

Tools: Mouse, Paint Shop Pro 7

PS. I wonder what happens when the girl squad meets a Chryssalid. :)

PPS. Okay, I've finished the XCOM. Buggy but nice. The Pink Squad is KIA. Except the sniper. She never appeared (the game doesn't allow me to choose the character class - stupid).

PPPS. www.youtube.com/user/SaberEmpe… < If you wish to see what happens to the pink squad, go and check the youtube "let's play" in that link. :) (Sadly, I don't think the gameplay is on ironman impossible, so they may actually survive the war...)

They very much remind me Unreal Tournament as well. Cool stuff. Will follow you, two clicks on your gallery and I find two of my favourites - XCom and Thief.

Both are great classics and now that I've also fan-artized Ultima and BG, I probably should do a Planescape Torment picture too. :)

Things can get dangerous in that game on Classic or Impossible, so I prefer to to include two ordinary men. You know... plasma cannon fodder is needed. :)

It's a good game, but you should try the Long War mod. The Long War mod makes it excellent. :)

I just started playing this game. For me I already know who will be in my squad. Jose Guzman, my heavy gunner, Erica Hart, my support, Bessie Hill the assault, and Leah Schneider, my Israeli sniper. No one can beat them!

And your ladies look awesome too :) .

I'm just gonna say based on my experience, when you have a chick as a sniper, you've got a friggin badass on your hands.

Seriously I have two female snipers right now and I'm at a point where I'm not even impressed with them anymore. Fish swim, birds fly, and those two snipers kick ass!!!

I just reloaded the save whenever a person died. I know, I am very ashamed of myself. Still had fun though.

I'll never never never reload! If a Great Guy is KIA, the Great Guy will remain KIA. I didn't even reload when my best PSI soldier, a support guy named Masanori "Magic" Tanaka died in a stupid freak accident THREE days before the Temple Ship Assault and the Volunteer had to be a less capable replacement. :(

But then, in the temple ship, when every X-Ray was eliminated EXCEPT the Über Ethereal, the main boss just disappeared. I couldn't find it anywhere! So I had to reload and re-fight the them all again. Goddamn bugs... That's why I never play real ironman.

Never reload, that's my man. Lost a whole bunch of good men to some nasty bugs, and I don't mean the chrysalids.

I reload every time, lol. I probably do this because there was this one completely disastrous mission I underwent early on.

I had just lost my favourite Argentinian heavy mustachioed muscle-man, and my only other worth while people were injured. While they were nursing their wounds and grieving for their lost brother, a difficult abduction mission came up. I went in, pairing my only reasonably skilled person I had left (a Chinese medic) with three other Rookies. Like I said, that was early on, so that mission happened to be my first encounter with Floaters.

I got absolutely owned.

So I went back to the previous mission and did a better job, and from then on every time I lost a person I would just be like "Well fuck that" and reload.

My playthrough was by no means perfect though. For example, I didn't research the thing that unlocks the foundry until about three quarters of the game in. I didn't play for about a month I was so pissed off, and this wasn't a problem I could reload.

My biggest OGOODGODWHATTHEHECK moment was when my stupid new rookie accidentally stirred every alien group in the map at once. 12 Floaters. Impossible difficulty. My guys had one Sergeant-level fellow, the others were much less pro. Basic starting equipment except few scopes and vests. I thought, this is it. Yet the Floater tactics are moronic and they all had really bad aim that day. This particular abduction map is probably the easiest, the demolition site that offers so many flanking possibilities, so it was on my side. Result: 12 dead Floaters; my heavy WIA, no one KIA.

But I still can't believe it went so well!

Of course, then I had a Council mission to save that whiny politician from the Thin Man rain. Why did my damn sniper miss so many 94% shots? Why did my heavies misfire their rockets? 4 dead vets, 2 WIA survivors, one dead politician, no longer Australia, China, Japan.

It's a fun game. :)

For almost half of my enemy unknown game, I had an all female squad. Only the sniper of the group has survived so far. She's been in three missions where she has been the only survivor.

The snipers are survivors. Thanks, squad sight.

I've been off-art now playing XCOM again, but now with Marathon Impossible. Actually a modded one: much tougher late game enemies! But in the same time my guys have two item slots and the satellites are much cheaper. Self-imposed iron man. It's... really chilling and thrilling. :)

have my own all gal squad for the remake - 2 Heavys, 1 Support, 1 Sniper and 2 Assaults, all Colonel rank. The really freaky part? None are from the USA. LOL

As for how it held up to the legacy - I think it does it justice, as it makes the X-COM universe more accessable to those not used to strategy games. However, the original is still the best.

Awesome art buddy - more like it please!

BTW the one on the left, with the beret - the post battle cigarette is a nice touch :P

I've been playing the original recently. Big shame how easily my guys go down - even a power suit can't block heavy plasma blasts. I've been using a fireteam style (point man, marksman, heavy, support) and it works well... until the aforementioned heavy plasma blasts. The Pink Squad was in the game. The big gal in the background, Mary "Kitchen" Baker (though she is a support in my game, not a heavy) is the only one who has survived. So far.
