RedRover's Factions

Somewhat stealing Silent Sigfig’s idea, I have decided to restructure my factions page. One faction will be featured per post, but I may lump some of the smaller groups into a single post. Please feel free to comment and critique, criticism is welcomed. If any of the factions interest you in use for soaps and forum battles, let me know (I love cameos!). If you also want me to take more pictures of certain things, I can do that as well. Hope you guys enjoy!

Fun Fact: All my factions are standing, meaning, they all exist together at the same time! I do not have to take some apart to make others.

Their house sigil is a snake, representing elegance and power. The house is most famous for leading the coalition against the Uasciri Empire.

Conrad's Condors (Updated 5.24.16)

Conrad Wyatt use to serve in the Grand Uasciri Army as a lieutenant. At the last battle on the Capital Planet, he fought off coalition forces and saved the city of Trago. After the Fall of the Empire, he made a deal with Dimitri Fang that the city of Trago could become a refugee city to house those that were left of the Uasciri. Trago has since then become a melting pot of many different types of minifigs from all across the galaxy. Conrad's days of serving as the active military protector of Trago are over, but he, and a small band of soldiers, formed Conrad's Condors in order to defend those who cannot defend themselves. They are considered an ally of the Imperial Magikstrate.

My favorites so far are probably the Undead Spacemen, probably because of the sweet Skellymech.

Republic of Sheodar

During the reign of the Grand Uasciri Empire, the cluster of systems known as Sheodar housed the empire's advanced robitics research laboratories and manufacturing plants. The people of these systems always felt slighted by the Uasciri as they were under-compensated for the contributions their robotics industry made to the Empire. When opposition to the Uasciri rose, they were among the first to join becoming one of the founding members of the Anti Uasciri Coalition. After the Coalition's victory, they reforged their systems into a small Republic. The systems broke off into multiple corporations which all competed to be the top robotic developers and manufacturers in the sector. Prisma Industries eventually rose to the top and absorbed all of the other corporations, uniting both the industry and the government under one roof. The Republic of Sheodar and Prisma industries are one in the same and continued to build their robotics industry to amass great wealth. This caught the eye of Trattoria's Sun Engineering Corp who bought out Prisma Industries to run as a subsidiary within the Magenta sector.

Sheodar / Prisma's military is 70% robotic, 30% organic, and 100% privatized


PI:01 Assault Drone

The assault drone is the soldier of the future. Cheap to make and easily programable, any well-to-do individual can purchase their own army.

PI:02 Robotic Soldier
Image
The robotic soldier is a couple steps up from the assault drone. Each is built with the Prism AI system giving it the abilities and competencies of a highly trained soldier.

PI:02.03 Robotic Heavy

One of the variations of robotic soldier frame, this one is suited to use heavy weapons

PI:03.00 Vindicator Mech

Armed with LBT claws and heavy machine guns, the Vindicator can break through the ranks of many enemies

PI:06.00 Hover Tank

A small, fast, robotic tank with its own AI.

Infantry

The infantry act as fodder to recover more valuable robotic wreckage, or for combat engineers to get to fix'in

Combat Engineers

Combat engineers are trained in war-zone survival and advanced robotic engineering. Someone needs to fix the robots.

Commandos

Commandos are the best the sheodar has to offer, outside of robots.

I love everything in this thread. Color-themed armies have always held a special place in my heart.

That's the only way to do it! There are more colors to come!

Brickforge! They have a 30 for 30 sale where they put 30 items or so on sale for under $0.30 every 2 weeks. The helmets came on one time for about 15 cents each so I bought a bunch and then just created a faction around them. I was originally using them for an Assyrian spinoff faction, but they didn't really fit. I instead created a spinoff that is more close to Natayla's original design and made these guys. But to just answer your original question, they are from Brickforge but the price has gone back up to a dollar or so each. Gotta watch the sales!

While all of these factions are great, I gotta admit, that the Undead Spacemen are my favourites, so far.

Jeez man you're making me spend far too much time writing compliments for this stuff!

Undead spacemen have a great vibe, the blue clone outfits and space regalia are really cool with a hint of undead space marine. The other colour coded guys are fun too, but Stubby beat me to that one. The yellow tank is an interesting one; the turret is great and there are plenty of nice things worked into it -it definitely has potential- however ground clearance is a tad scarce for what looks like a faster tank, and the areas between the tracks & wheels are a bit bare, perhaps use the holes in those technic bricks to attach some greebles? Or maybe go for sideskirts but IMO those are harder to pull off. The gun also looks a bit thin for it's length, and the front beak sticks out a little from the hull.

Don't be fooled by my nitpicking though, all the stuff here is really well done and your stuff has a nice, "clean" feel to it. I'm criticising 'cause I'm kinda excited to see what you'll build if you keep on improving.

I added the Protectors to Conrad's Condors as well as updated Conrad's look.

More importantly I revamped the tank!
