Is that Azure color still in circulation? That one was kind of rad.

I think this is the particular shade I'm talking about

Yeah, azure is readily available and part of the current palette. You're mixing it up with teal, which got discontinued around 2008ish.

Minifigs

Leaders and Heroes: Captain Cheeto, President Peachamir Putin, and William Two-Face Tecumseh Sherman.
Spoiler
Show
Cheeto, Super-Soldier:

*Flexes Menacingly*

Peachamir Putin, "Democratically Elected" President

Once A KGB thug, always a KGB thug.

Sherman, High General:

It's a coin toss whether he'll hit you with the ShotGun or a fist first. General William Two-Face Tecumseh Sherman likes things up close and personal - face to face to face.
Image

Two officers flanked by Spetznaz soldiers.
Spoiler
Show
Officer:

"When you reach rank of officer, you get paid in more than just vodka."

Spetznaz:

Highly trained and heavily conditioned, Spetznaz are recruited from the ranks of veteran infantry. They function as a mobile reserve and shock force, rolled in to blunt major enemy offensives and reinforce crumbling lines.
Image

Specialists: A Sniper, a Medic, and a Mechanic.
Spoiler
Show
Sniper:

Skills honed on the splintered skulls of Chechyan separatists.

Medic:

"Step 1: Liberally Apply Vodka as painkiller. Step 2: Pray."

Mechanic:

"Step 1: Liberally apply force to malfunctioning system. Step 2: Pray."

Image

Normal troopers armed with machine guns and a launcher.

Image

Troopers with carbines. I think the ones on the left would be VDV, or something.
Spoiler
Show
Hot meals, warm beds, and the promise of violence are what keeps the ranks of the 45th Union Ground Forces filled with fresh recruits.
Vehicles

VDV Buggy

Image
Spoiler
Show
The primary Fast Attack Vehicle of 45th Union Paratroopers.
Image

It's more or less the old Rat jeep with some added bits.

Image

Image

Not gonna lie, the rollcage was a real bitch to get right.

Image

"Why do we have windshield wipers with no glass?"

Vodnik

Image
Spoiler
Show
This dependable 4x4 was introduced to replace the aging ASV.
It appears I forgot the proper 3/4 shot...

Image

Image

Image

I'm pretty proud of the doors.

Image

t does fit a small engine.

Image

Image

Seats around 4.

BTR-14

Image
Spoiler
Show
The Speed and Armor on this transport does not mean it sacrifices offensive capabilities.
Image

I added snorkels, a bulkier turret, and some more little its and bobs.

Image

Image

Image

Fits a good deal of soldiers, if they lay low.

Image

Driver and gunner's seats.

BMD-15

Image
Spoiler
Show
A standard turret on a heavily modified BMP chassis, the BMD sacrafices transport capabilities for offensive power.
Image

Can you see the periscopes?

Image

Image

I really like the rear of this tank.

Image

Image

Fits around 5 if you cram.

Image

Driver and gunner.

Gladiator Main Battle Tank

Image
Spoiler
Show
The GA-35/C is an improved version of what was already one of the most powerful tanks in the Galaxy.
Image

The first thing I did in this redesign was add those orange light-things that are on real T90 turrets.

Image

Then I threw some headlights in.

Image

I made the back sexier, made the fuel tanks sturdier, and added turn signals.

Image

And added some stuff to the turret.

Image

The Driver now has a periscope and hatch.

Image

The hatch can only open when the turret is like this though.

Image

The main additions to the turret were smoke grenade launchers, radar, and the bar on the back.

Image

Image

Naturally the main gun can elevate, the mortar can elevate, and both the main turret and the MG can rotate 360 degrees. The hatch on the turret can close too.

Image

Image

The engine can be removed.

Image

As can the turret.

Image

Image

The Gunner has his own little pit.

Image

Image

Image

Join the 45th today!

Iron Maiden

Image
Spoiler
Show
This walking tank is the most feared weapon in the 45th Union's arsenal.
Image

The actual mech is mostly the same as before. Only the legs have really been modified.

Image

I really like the emblem on it's arm.

Image

Engine.

Image

Image

Image

The Pilot has his own little screen on the hatch roof.

Image

Image

The Maiden's Battle Rifle has been much improved.

Image

Hellion VTOL

Image
Spoiler
Show
A small VTOL perfect for insertions and extractions. Comfortably Seats four.
Image

Image

Image

Insanely ugly and likely to be replaced.

The KA-7 "Horsefly" VTOL

Image
Spoiler
Show
A new utility and transport VTOL is entering service to replace the aging Hellion. Slight modifications to the passenger cab make the Horsefly capable of exoatmospheric flight.
Image

The original plan was to have a chin-mounted chaihttp://brikwars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=13937ngun, but there wasn't enough clearance.

Image

Image

Image

Uncomfortably seats six, and seven is a definite possibility.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Thrusters can rotate for both hover and flight modes.

Image

"Hip" MI-9A Assault VTOl

Image
Spoiler
Show
This nimble attack VTOl packs quite the punch.
Image

Image

The main modification i made to this is that the autogun was removed from the tail and one was added above each missile cluster.

Image

Image

instead the tail now holds a wheel.

Image

Which can be retracted.

Image

Also the pilot now has a joystick.

Falcon Interceptor

Image
Spoiler
Show
The new principal fighter craft of the 45th Union requires less pilots than it's predecessor, and is much faster than contemporary fighters
Image

Image

The main modification was this sticker, and general smoothing of rough edges.

Image

Image

And the missile holders are more stable now.

Possibly, it could interfere with the arc of the wheel to either prevent it from folding out or folding flush...

You know, I was going to do that but It completely slipped my mind. I put some plates on, and it looks a bit better now. In fact, since you reminded me, now I'll do

A favorite of Emerian Solados, the Compensator is bigger than anything you'll ever need. Rumors that this vehicle was designed for Trattoria are categorically denied by military spokespersonados.

Hot damn, you've got 12 major factions so far with squads and vehicles apiece. It's like you have your own little slice of the brikverse in your room.
