At the moment, they're just Clone Troopers, but like I said before, as soon as I can figure out how, I'm gonna change them.

I looked them up and I can definitely see the similiarities. Also thanks.

Update:

Image

I have decided the APC is ugly and I should make a battle tub.

Image

It can hold up to five or six soldiers. For now it only has my mechanized troops.

Image

Image

The cockpit is able to detach. This is useful when the front of the battletub is reduced to molten slag. It's a steel horse with two size one guns.

Image

Engine.

Image

Image

A shitty panzer I built without the knowledge or skill of building a good lego tank. I'll probably build a better one when I've got the time.

Image

Image

I just realized I forgot to take pics of the interior. Oh well.

Image

I've noticed that most armies are lacking some sort of artillery. Though I think the Dutch or the Tredorians have light ones. Anyways this baby has a crew of four. Two shovel brigadiers, one soldier and a pilot. All four of them reload the guns. The soldier is used to give the gun some extra protection and the pilot is the one who aims and fires the gun. The shovel brigadiers get to push it.

Image

It has a payload of four size one explosives (the studs). It also happens to be a size four payload launcher.

Image

It has two hooks on the back to hold pistols. This way the crew aren't completely helpless.

The Trovians have light artillery and are getting larger ones soon enough.

I like the detaching steel horse on your battle tub, good for continuing with carnage  :twisted:

I like the battle tub and artillery, but yeah, the tank could use some work.   :protip: use SNOT to cover up the sides of the treads.  

My Britannian army is going to have crew-served artillery as opposed to heavy weapons integrated into their infantry squads.

Is there like a guide for SNOT? Or is it something you need to figure out for yourself?

Also thanks guys.

You really just start out with any pieces that have studs on the sides,and build outward from there.

I would recommend that the turret be expanded to fit a minifigure, otherwise it looks more like an IFV to me. Also,

:protip: When you run out of/lack treads make a hover tank.

I'm sorry, but treads turn the brutality to maximum levels. I'd build a gunship or something before that, cause then I could at least use it in space battles. Plus it's good practice for when I build an execution tank.

Nice artillery. Mind if I use some inspiration from your artillery for my own artillery? Keep it up and I like your army, very nice!

Der Verloren Hoop

Image

Lost Hope squads are vital to the Bavarian Ground Forces. They are usually made up of veteran troops with a few fresh recruits that replace the dead squad members.

Image

The Lost Hope doesn't rely on the Stg Vampyrs like other squads, instead they use Mondragon Rifles because they're more accurate and require less maintenance at the cost of having a lower rate of fire.

Image

Lost Hope Officers are usually very tough, experienced and courageous. They are expected to charge into minefields, break heavily armoured formations, destroy barbed wire with their boots and do whatever is beyond expected.

Image

They are also given bier to distract them from their grievous wounds or if they want to take a break.
