B)

This is the sequel to A Nation Divided. Originally it was going to be A Nation Divided 2, but I decided to expand my horizons beyond the USA and CSA. This story is set in 1908 and will cover the war between Colorado and Deseret. This story will have tanks, "aero planes," and cars, all developed slightly earlier than in real history, but only by a few years.

I found an alternate history site that had soldier templates: http://www.alternatehistory.com/discuss ... 852&page=2

Using them, I made this for A Nation Divided:

B) He matches the description of the Presidential Guards perfectly.

Here are some more modern ones from The Western War(1908):

Next addition coming today!

Wait... you're from Colorado? You might have been in the cities that will be mentioned in the story! :D

I bet that there will be areas like Grand Junction and Telluride in the story, will there? I live in the Denver Metro area, but I have been a lot of places in the state. Also, are you going to make a map? There are so many small countries now ;)

Yep, those areas will appear in the story.

And yep, maps are comin'. I have about 5 maps saved on my computer and I'm going through them and making changes. There will also be a teaser map for what things will look like in the Cold War era. Although, Russia will NOT turn to Communism. As a matter of fact, Communism will not take off in my story, although fascism will.

Here are troopers from The Western War. No, despite the file name "Uniforms:1871" below them, they are 1908. I just forgot to rename the file. :}

I decided to postpone the story update. Instead, so everyone can envision this alternate world, I am going to have a fully-customized map of the entire WORLD. *epic lighting behind "WORLD" and the Hallelujah chorus plays* :D

Awesome, I can't wait to see the map! What do the words next to the Colorado flag mean on your website?

I'm developing a color coding system for US uniforms. So far? Red = Pennsylvania, light blue = Indiana, and green = Ohio.
