Here is one of my two main factions : The Patriarchy Enforcement Agency . I'll try to make an armoury post about the second one, The Vamis, as soon as possible. (I don't know who Vami is, but he ruined a good faction name. Goddammit.)The Patriarchy Enforcement Force
Patriarchy isn't just a social construct. It actually is a secret organization that maintains a full-scale armed force : the Patriarchy Enforcement Agency (aka PEA), which will enforce the Patriarchy Oppression and destroy any resistance in its path. Here's what will land within 20 inches from a minifig's position if he tries to mess with The Patriarchy, for example by opening a safe space in broad daylight or trying to pay his female employee more than 75% of the equivalent men's wage.
Overwatch pic (Sorry for the overall crappy quality, I don't have access to a good camera for now.)The Hetzer
is a tank destroyer whose small size has made it perfect for airborne deployment (Although it is the heaviest vehicle available to the PEA). It is overall lightly armored except for the frontal plate, that can withstand one AP rocket or two. It sports a decent size 4 gun/laucher, capable of firing both AP and HE rounds. The PEA can deploy two of these babies on the battlefield.
The ELC AMX
The Hetzer's internal layout, with the pilot at the front and the gunner at the back.
is a very light tank designed to operate in swarms to take out heavier foes ; it relies on speed and agility rather than armor forsurvival. This version here is automated, hence the HAL9000 style red eye.
The Panzer I
Mandatory "oh shit" pic
is the Patriarchy's infantry support armored vehicle. It's equipped with two machineguns and a flamethrower for maximum efficiency against enemy foot soldiers, especially if they're unarmed and fleeing for their lives. It also is an automated vehicle.
The Field Artillery Corps
is a major component of the PEA, bringing much-needed long range firepower. It is composed of four medium field howitzers, that can be deployed for direct fire (with the shield on) or high-angle fire (with the shield off). Each howitzer is operated by two gunners, easily recognizable with their black beret.
The anti-material squad

is equipped with anti-material rifles (duh), which have to be carried into position by two patriarchist grunts. Once in position, they'll rip through light vehicles and armored minifigs like a hot knife through butter. If needed, the squad can be turned into a regular infantry squad by issuing it standard rifles.
Each anti-tank squad
is organized around the rocketman (which actually uses a heavy recoilless rifle). 3 soldiers carry the rounds on their backs, one HE and two AP per squad. These round are designed to take out heavy armor, compensating for the PEA's lack of heavily armored vehicles.
The two close-combat squads
are the PEA's elite force, trained for brutal efficiency against enemy infantry using lightsabers and handguns. On the battlefield, they're always first in, last out.
The Claim Officers
act as the Patriarchy's Spec Ops team. They'll perform scouting and infiltration tasks, particularly high-value target assassinations.
Last but not least, Captain Hume and his squad leads the entire PEA force. His Brodyguard ensures his personal security and usually do the dirty job on the battlefied, because Captain Hume values his bodily integrity quite a lot more than his men's lives. (Path of Glory officer cliché).
The PEA is meant to be an airborne unit, i'll try to add an helicopter or two later on.
If you liked the vehicles and gun design, don't praise me. I used LDD files from here
(for the ELC AMX, the Panzer I and the Hetzer) and here
(for the howitzer) to build them.
