UDF Uniform Design Feedback

Post by Tarjei Einhornsson » Mon Feb 04, 2013 10:29 pm

I've been experimenting with designs for the UDF. Thus far, I've come up with the following and find it to be the most promising design:

Green for land forces, dark blue for naval and light grey-blue for the airforce. What does everyone think? Note this isn't the final design but it is what I have thus far.

What about officers and/or dress uniforms? Black?

Cool tho, I might play with this to make some Amokolian variants. ;)

As the UDF is a combined arms force where the naval and air components are corps of the army we would be within our rights to make the buggers wear green. Black uniforms for the general staff, the Prince and senators would do very nicely.

Still working on everything but this would be the basic starting uniform irregardless of rank. Officers would most likely have gold piping (as opposed to white) and scalloping on their cuffs. But the main cloth color would remain the same, as it denotes service branch.

As for territorial variants, the Normarksgarde has it's own uniform set completely. I think perhaps territory-based divisions could be a good source of patriotism and giving a sense of pride by contributing to the security of Elwynn. They will be making it into the OrBat as I (slowly) complete it. Should you wish, you could give me a name for the Amokolian division which would serve partially as your territorial gendarme (i.e. State Police since I know you're from the US) and partially as the territorial contribution towards something analogous to a National Guard within the primary UDF force. Which reminds me, I need to get the Normarksgarde uniforms up as well.

Then we'd use Corps patches a few inches up from the cuff-line to indicate this. While perhaps not as colorful, it is certainly simplifies supply issues.

Dunno about daily but I think parades on major national holidays (and most definitely on our day of independence) would be lovely.

I figured white would be a more sensible choice for UDF General Staff and/or the Prince, given that putting on the reich really isn't something I see Elwynn being good at.

I think the consensus is for black. White is bit 'colonial governor's tbh.

Will make it black with gold trim for General Staff. I imagine a Prince could choose his own attire as not everyone enjoys the junta wardrobe :P.

Latest development:

Specific service arm is designated by the color of the uniform's collar. Enlisted personnel feature the same color green as the uniform itself for piping, while officers' uniforms feature white piping and General Staff feature gold piping on black/dark charcoal uniforms.
  • Dark Blue - Naval Corps
  • Light Green - Border Guard Corps
  • Charcoal Grey - Crystal Cabal (internal security)
  • Purple - Gentlemen-at-Cudgels
  • Sky Blue - Air Corps
  • Red - Army
  • White - General Staff

Not exactly innovative, but it will do.

APPROVED.
