The Trattorian Empire (ORIGINAL CONTENT DO NOT STEAL)

The Trattorian Empire, known for it's high testing scores and scientific aptitude has an army of conscripts. Those who do not do well enough in school are conscripted, or made into test subjects.

Image

In the military, there is a small class of Trattorians who become students of warfare. They treat battles with the same zeal and enthusiasm that other Trattorians reserve for physics and math, using wit and skill to defeat their opponents. Siri does not worry about this faction killing her and installing a new dictator, because they have small numbers, a high amount of patriotism and care about fighting more than politics. The Lieutenant is a Warfare-Student, as we can see from his stubble and sunglasses.


Image

This is an RPG guy and a SMG guy. They're in the Special Operations Squad.

Image

Minigunner and CQ trooper.

Image

And the flamethrower (or acidthrower, I haven't decided yet).

Image

Each officer has a jetpack, an upgraded rifle and a squad of five troopers.

Image

Here is a hacker and the hero, Captain Misha (WAHAHA). Hackers have a supernatural dice pool they can use to manipulate teknology. Captain Misha has a miniturized beam cannon.

Image

Here is Captain Misha's squad, four heavy lasers.

Image

And this is the mekanix, with his improvised killbot.

Kinda boring force, could use a bit more variety, but otherwise great.

You probably depleted Bricklink's reserves of space police minifigs meaning I won't be able to expand my own force. *grumbles*

I only ordered from one store, so you should be able to pick up squads and odd figs here and there. There are also tons of European stores if you're willing to pay shipping.

Yeah, I'm not really a fan of it either. I'll probably stumble onto a better design later.

Can the gun aim upwards? Because on mine, it keeps flopping down and it's a bit annoying.

Depends. When you say "let me go on bricklink" do you mean "let me visit the site" or "let me buy a bunch of legos from bricklink"?

Also, I think this question belongs in general discussion.

Nice army silver!

Silva is still using the old Nyphilian design without the armor or axeblades.

For reference this is what Trattorians should look like right now:

It looks a little to dull to be an acidthrower. It needs some big green tanks or something to really have that look.

I mean, I guess.  That would make it look better, for sure.

Imagination is fine, too.

I agree with Battlegrinder that the weapon looks like a flamethrower more than an acid thrower (something I plan to remedy later on with different colours or a whole new backpack), but Colette is very fond of acid and it fits with the army's attitude. It's much more sciencey to use a compound to break down a person with acid instead of fire.
