    Xenonauts Posters

    Hello all,

    This is a follow in from this thread:
    http://www.goldhawkinteractive.com/f...purposes/page5

    Basically looking to see if anyone can come up with some nice, period specific, posters or art that might help tell the story of an impending alien invasion. See the original thread for some ideas!

    Happy posting!

    Here are a few cold war era posters from the interwebz that the artistically minded of us could have a play with

    What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about?

    Good one to photoshop a UFO into

    Some older ones as well to give ideas. WW1 I think.

    Bit of rewording needed but close enough.

    There is a selection here that look pretty good, not cold war but good inspiration.

    Here are a bunch.

    I like "For all time", "make love not war", "resist", and "Solidaridad".

    "do not let them escape" is perfect, crashed craft and everything. With just a change in weapons and the soldier outline to be a bit more alien this basically describes a normal x-com crash recovery mission. It's a shame this isn't for a TFTD remake, I think that pilot has flippers on.

    "Build a Regular Modern Army to Protect the Socialist State" is very similar to some of the designs bouncing around in the logo/mascot thread.


    I really like Solidaridad's image of the people weaving their efforts together (the basket) to stop the bomb, but having a hard time translating that into something that would apply to an alien invasion.

    Join the armed forces, travel to places, see the aliens, blow them up!

    Or alternative last line; get the probe!

    Xenonauts: We Keep What We Kill.
    Common wisdom proposes that at minimum 60% of the field of engagement should be rubble and/or on fire. As such the munitions budget has been increased 50%. Operations debriefs have shown that 15% is insufficient for current combat requirements.
