So for every faction I have, I'll post all the figs and vehicles with descriptions of the builds themselves, as well as little blurbs(hidden in spoiler tags) that add a bit more to the lore of the build. If you guys like this, I can do a post like this for all my factions.

All looks great! I'd love more blurbs of other factions.

For the Dragon Lance Assault Walker, I think if the toes of the feet were a little longer, it would balance out the long and slender legs. Everything else on it looks really great!

It's a funny thing, the vehicles each look kind of weird photographed by themselves, but the proportions and color logic look like they have their own kind of internal consistency across the faction. I bet if you photoed them all together in context, rather than individually, the style would lock up real nicely.

Great detail on the mech body, and the colour scheme does well to straddle the gap between "token coloured tiles on a dark grey homogenous blob" and the :j+b: effect. I think this helps the effect of consistency Stubby was hinting at.

I like these a lot. Would've done something similar with the space Japan faction I had in mind for a while were not for budget constraints (and the lack of cool ninjago prints at the time).

Glad you guys like this. I'll have another faction up soon.

Hey, what is the name of that rubber tank track on the APCv2? What is the name on Bricklink?
And they look so lovely by the way.

I can kind of see what you meant about the APC looking too realistic now. It looks really good on its own, but doesn't fit too well with the rest. I think changing the gun to something with weirder proportions might help (maybe a stubby cannon [no not that stubby] instead of long and thin?). It also has a lot less colour on it than the other two. Personally I'd replace the red and yellow curved parts on the Dragon Lance's legs, it might tie it together more.

What heads did you use for the conscripts, by the way?

Good call. I added some more colors and made the cannons more fitting.

I love the legs on that walker, they look weirdly organic.
