Great. Now I want playthroughing W2 again. Just fucking great. From the very fucking beginning. Fuck.

How is that even a bad thing ? Do NG+ and improve the skills of your current squad !

I don't have squad, I didn't touch it quite long time and apparently have some hunger for it, just haven't noticed until now or rather until a hot nun with a minigun

Anyway I would love to see a couple in the church of leopold's society level
But since there are no gatlings in the game would be a common rifle good enough? Or a flamethrower, maybe along with a squad of hunters with Bach in the final level?

Is it possible to make nun outfit from something since you can't just insert it into game for the well known reason?

A squad would've been nice, specially for that final battle with Bach.

Nuns with flamethrowers though ? I like to think Bloodlines is a bit more controlled than that.

So would these nuns actually fit into Wasteland? Or are they just used for some movie poster or similar?

Oh no, they fit in quite beautifully... and gruesomly.

They are part of a post-apocalyptic raider group that is guaranteed to tear you a new one... if you ever play Wasteland 2 that is.

Wow! I never knew that. Seems as if this wasn't concept art for Bloodlines after all...

I think it's an unused concept for bloodlines reworked and used later in wasteland 2.
If you think it suit well, like in the church before the cave, I can make a nun NPC (which I bet she can be armed also with Steig Augs or Jaegerspases) :vampwink:

I doubt this for several reasons:
- The Society of Leopold does not wear church uniforms.
- There is no hint whatsoever that a chaingun was planned for Bloodlines.
- All Bloodlines concept art is listed with copyright Activion on that page, but the nun is not.

Would this fit into Arcanum? I never played that game. Or maybe it was intended for the Fallout 3 prototype that Troika did before closing down. Which would fit very well into the later Wasteland 2 game, because as I understand it, Fallout is Wasteland only they needed another name...

Nah, couldn't have fit in Arcanum since that was a tolkienesque fantasy game. If it was ever meant for anything it was most likely Fallout.

- maybe a real nun?
- maybe only on the very early concepts?
- that actually answers it XD my bad, I'll fix the title of the topic as soon as I can
- nope, in arcanum (a game set in a fantasy world) the only religious persons are from pagan cults and their members wears only monkish robes
- plus the art style was more like bloodlines but since you hinted troika's fallout 3 aka Mystary! (how I forgot about that I will never know....) it's possible he just mantained the art style
- as far as I got it fallout was in the beginning a late spin off of the very first wasteland, then curiously fallout gave the name to the whole series, and they picked the name wasteland as a sort of tribute
