Post-Apocalyptic Themed Army. The year is 2089. A nuclear explosion has gone off in most major cities. One of the remaining groups is Captain JAM's crew. A crew of survivors... some have mutations from all the radiation, but no one holds it against them. This crew is a very tight crew, they focus on speed and heavy fire power to take out enemies when defending territory or on supply runs. Tactically however, its just a "I smash you before you smash me" kinda style. Captain JAM leads them although he has no previous experience of any kind... his title of "Captain" is self imposed, he was just the toughest. They mainly try to live as peacefully as they can... sort of. Feuding among members of the crew is common, the number two man is currently up in the air, lots of contenders but Captain JAM doesn't figure he'll ever die so doesn't give it any thought whatsoever.

Thanks. Just got a bunch of weapons and armour from BrickWarriors. Great quality and great fit... everything is amazing. Captain JAM has the demon armour which having two clips in the back makes for crazy versatility.

Yeah I would love some BrickWarriors armour but the UK suppliers don't do mail order. BrickArms do some wonderful weapons and minifigforlife.com sells them mail order in the UK, so... this explains why I buy BrickArms stuff.

If I could set up in business doing BrickWarrior stuff mail order for the UK, I would.

Just realized I forgot to take a picture of Domina Trixie. Captain JAM's on and off again girlfriend... and while I'm thinking about it, the serious contenders for second in command are: Domina Trixie (Zub and Zeb would be loyal to her) Jonah Hex (Tyrone and Joe would be loyal to him) Boris n' Bruno (McSstabby and Jeg would be loyal to them) Tik (obviously Tevin and Thomas would be loyal to him) and Zarko (has no one loyal to him due to his shifty nature, but is dangerous nonetheless - would be able to summon/conjurer allies) the rest of the crew don't really give a shit, they just don't want to die and basically hope a new leader wouldn't lead them straight to their deaths.

Domina Trixie: Badass survivor chick. Armoured and dual wields two snub nose revolvers. Flirtatious personality and attractive.
Jonah Hex: In addition to being Captain JAM's great great (x20) grand father, he's incredible with 6 shooters and when those fail, has a cutlass which serves him well. Manages to get out of a lot of hairy situations. Luck seems to be on his side.
Boris n' Bruno: Basically a sad case, two random dudes merged together due to mass amounts of radiation, though, one positive is how incredibly badass they turned out. Wield an impaler rifle and crude sword. Armoured.  While both are blood thirsty and menacing, Boris (in helmet) is a little more reserved and a bit more careful than Bruno. They often argue but usually Bruno ends up listening to Boris.
Tik: He and his two sons had their hair turn purple due to all the radiation. He is smart and can motivate his sons to perform incredible feats. Armoured. Wields a katana and a bolt gun. He's in his late 30's and his sons are 16 and 17... had them really young.
Zarko: A total mystery, just showed up one day offering his help in return for some protection. Spell casting takes a lot out of him. Deals in Death Magik. Able to res-erect corpses as bone minions and give friendly allies a +1 to damage rolls within 6"

I am currently entertaining the thought of doing a five way battle royal for the second in command position, and doing a full report for it. We'll see. Also... thoughts? Comments? Ideas? Suggestions? And who do you think would win the fight for second in command based on overall appearance and my descriptions?

Update! Not sure what to call this thing yet. It's very loosely based on the Millennium Falcon, but to be more of a hover ship/troop transport. Lots of frontal assault weapons, but none on the rear, because that is unBrikWars. This ship won't be retreating. Basically full throttle, hit 'em hard, hopefully the ship can take lots of damage and the passengers live long enough to jump out and do more damage. Also fits into my colour scheme fairly nicely. OT and black. Oh and yes the domes will open (two gunners) of course the shark head (whatever it is) opens for the pilot, and the back hatch with the bar part opens and can probably fit in 4 minifigs in reserve.

This is the "Come at me bro!" view.

I like the broad chunky look. Everything about that ship says "Come at me bro".

Heh. I have a troop transport that's almost the exact same shape, just with different colored windows, side-mounted engines, and troop exits out the rear instead of the top. My variant also has a top-mounted turret and a rear-gunner, but only because there are doors there. It got a lot funner once I attached a winch & tow cable.

You definitely need moar gunz. How about a mounted gunner wherever the troops deploy? or some more of those bottom-mounted turrets?

I think it would be cool if instead of gunners, the two domes revealed mortars. I can picture it making a couple of passes over a landing zone, firing off shells to clear the area as it passes over, and then lowering the troops down. It could also give you some defence against aircraft coming in from above. I definitely agree it needs a turret on the bottom, though.

There seems to be space on the top for a big gun.

That looks awesome! Needs more dakka for sure, and maybe larger troop area.
