    We're giving away a XBLA redeemable code for Toy Soldiers to one lucky gamer! I've been playing it recently and can vouch for it's awesomeness, taking out the Tsar tank which was shown in the demo was highly satisfying. I'll also be posting up a review soon to let you know my final thoughts on it.
    [​IMG]

    Getting back to the contest, to earn an entry just state which historic military figure you think would make a cool guest appearance in the game and a brief explanation as to why (no racist/offensive remarks).

    The winner will be selected via a randomizer. Also, to reward our active members, whoever has at least 50 posts and has been a member of the forum for at least 2 months will have their entry count twice.

    The code should be redeemable wherever the game's trial is available. For more information about the game go HERE.

    Rules & regulations:
    - In order to enter this contest you must have at least 5 non-spam posts excluding the reply made in this thread (the entry itself).
    - All entries must be submitted by the deadline which is: April 1, 2010 11:59 PM US EST.
    - The winner will be contacted via PM and will have 48 hours to respond to that message in order to redeem their prize. If the prize is not redeemed on time, another participant will be awarded the prize. The next participant is subject to the same terms.
    - Cheating attempts will result in not only disqualification but a permanent ban, so no dup. accounts etc.
    - The deadline along with other details may be adjusted at our sole discretion.

    If you don't win, remember that you can grab it off the marketplace for 1200 MSP. Special thanks to the XBLA community manager for making this possible.

    Erwin Rommel. Awesome general and from what I have read if he hadnt gotten sick and had been supplied properly africa would have belonged to germany straight up.

    Genghis Khan. Do you really have to ask why he would be cool in this game? He had the largest contiguous empire in history. Maybe the wrong time period but it would be fun to shoot at his troops with a heavy machine gun. =)

    Napoleon was the first person that came into my mind. Being a great military leader, it seems perfect for this game. He could even be a boss, who knows?

    Can I count the 300 Spartan warriors? Because that would be awesome.

    I had a civil war class and I always thought that this dude had the coolest name, the only reason he didn't go further in military was that he didn't attack a retreating confederate force. He was one of the greatest organizers of the civil war and since has been called the reason the union army was as strong as they were.
    His name... Don Carlos Buell

    I would love to see Ulysses S Grant , due to his extrodinary intelligance in combat , and also his skill is warfare. He would be an extremely powerful and intelligent military officer and one hell of a threat to whoever goes aganist him.

    @ Izod517, while you have enough posts to enter the contest, you need to state which historic military figure you'd like to see and why in order to get an entry. Once you've done that, you'll have a shot at winning Toy Soldiers.

    Going to go a bit old school here, but Julius Caesar would make a great guest, he could have a special chariot unit with a spear man at each side. I've been studying up on him recently on my humanities class, and he seemed to be quite a great military commander.

    He defeated many armies, including the one at Gaul (present day France) and eventually took complete power of Rome for himself, with the roman people naming him dictator for life (of course, he was assassinated later, but it doesn't disqualify his achievements).

    He is famous for uttering "I came, I saw, I conquered", or "veni, vidi, vici" in the original language.

    This is a cool little line from an article I was reading "In 56 B.C., Caesar crossed the English Channel and invaded Britain with a fleet of eight hundred ships. Not until nearly two thousand years later at the height of World War II, would such a large armada again be assembled in the Channel. "

    @ Raikoh, the entry itself is fine but you need 5 additional posts for it to count as stated by the requirements.

    @ firecloud134, read what I said to Izod517.

    My vote is for Genghis Khan. Doesn't fit with the time period, but he'd still be a fun historical figure to play as in Toy Soliders!

    Maybe they'll make some DLC? :p

    Well you can just pick any and put something simple like "they're cool etc." it doesn't have to be long or anything as your entry won't be judged on that...Just Google a list of historic military figures, could even pick someone like George Washington lol.

    I'm going to choose William Tecumseh Sherman, general in the Union Army during the Civil War. I'm choosing him because he was a total badass and he had the policy of Total warfare, his army lead a path of destruction into the south. They looted towns for supplies then destroyed anything that "directly supported the war effort or the institution of slavery", they even bent railway rails around trees.

    While I think Grant is one of the more interesting ones put forth so far, I have to say I'm surprised no one has said Alexander the Great... the man who cried when he had nothing left to conquer! So I think he gets my vote for rather obvious reasons.

    Might as well enter for a chance, thanks. :)

    Can't believe he hasn't been mentioned yet, having to manage strategies to take down Adolf Hitler would feel like a great accomplishment.

    George S. Patton

    It would be funny to see him slapping the plastic soldiers around, and he was also a tank genius (outclassed Rommel in Africa).

    Fail Izzy Fail! - I'd like to meet Hannibal - one of the few people to actually take a formidable stand against the Romans - that and using elephants is AWESOME.
