Field medical officer by spacegoblin Field medical officer by spacegoblin
Female medical orderly. Here are two different colour palettes. Although unarmed and lacking armour such units are still issued with gas masks. The different colour scheme marks them out from other troops and results in less casualties (enemy units will rarely target medical personell on purpose) when working in the field.

Wow I can see that you were inspired heavily by German\Wermarcht uniforms of World War 1. Its very elegant, actually all your concept for the fictional army is.

However I also get the feel that your designs for most of the drawings and illustrations are also heavily inspired by final fantasy 9. I may be wrong but its just something I noticed.

I am a big fan of that game so that could be true at some level, although it wasn't on purpose :) This army was a mix of ww1 (French and German) with a dash of Napoleonic and my own imagination.

Depending on the nature of the person or persons on the 'enemy' side I'm not so sure about them not targeting the medics. I suppose they might not in the hopes that if they were captured the medics might treat them based on their medical oaths and not be holding a grudge against them or some such, but some medics don't treat the enemy either way.

Personally, when I'm playing a video game, strategy or fps or rpg or whatever else, I take out anything that can heal or repair enemies so they CAN'T xD.

True-it can depend on how bitter the enemies are. Also on the nature of the medic. These ones are unarmed, so may be less likely to be deliberately targeted. In pure terms of effectivness it's best to take out the healers-and they often were killed in real life, but there are also many stories of soldiers on both sides following an unwritten rule that medics should not be targetted.

I'm the same in rpgs or the like-take out the healer first! ;)
