This is my second faction, the other being the Patriarchy
. Battle reports between the two are planned. Enjoy !Some Kanon
Led by President Derrida and his Prime Minister Foucault from their impregnable fortress of Abraxas, the Postmodern Relativist Republic
(often shortened to Postmodern Republic or simply PMRR) is a non-oppressive totalitarian state whose ultimate goal is the Dekonstruction of the entire Brikverse, merging all its parts into the Safe Space known as the Great Plastic Bin, where male and female minifigs, peaches and yellow, genuine and CLOan briks will be assimilated into a dark magma known as the Unsorted Matter
Although it was during some time the dominant power in its corner of the Brikverse, the Postmodern Relativistic Republic suffered heavy losses against its neighbor the Scientific Realism Federation during the conflicts known as the Science Wars. Defeated, it was forced to hand over all of its weaponized Scientific Artifacts by a humiliating peace treaty, crippling its military strength. In order to regain its former glory, the Postmodern Republic is planning to invade one of its oldest enemies : the Patriarchy. President Derrida, using the dark power of the Dekonstruction, seduced and corrupted one of the Patriarchy's opposing rebel group, the De Beauvoir's Avengers
, into swearing allegiance to the Postmodern Relativist Republic. Fanatically dedicated to the Dekonstruction of the Patriarchy, and equipped with the most Postmodern equipment available, it is now known as the 1st Postmodern Mechanized Corps
.The 1st Postmodern Mechanized Corps
The 1st Postmodern Mechanized Corps is a nearly entirely female combined arm unit, due to its past as a rebel feminist group. It incorporates a peach squad where some male minifigs are tolerated as cannon fodder for the sake of intersectionality, but they are not expected to last very long in battle, either because of forced suicide missions or unlucky stray bullets from their comrades.
The Type 64
is the newest Postmodern main battle tank. Its reactive armor and high-velocity gun are unmatched by any vehicles currently in use by the PMRR's enemies. However, its high level of sophistication makes it a very costly vehicle, only issued to some elite units of the Postmodern army. The 1st Postmodern Mechanized Corps was lucky to secure one.
The Type 55
have been the standard Postmodern medium tank for several decades. Before alvailable in nearly limitless quantities, the Science Wars have severely reduced the inventory and the Type 55 is now a much rarer vehicle. Despite its age, its armor and 4-inch gun still packs the punch on the battlefied, especially against the lighter machines that the Patriarchy uses.
An AA/IFV version equipped with twin heavy machineguns and an ATGM launcher exists, but is rarely used on the field.

is the standard Postmodern APC. It can be used for ligh infantry support thanks to its low pressure gun or twin machinegun mount. As the Type 55, it's an old vehicle that is still very efficient.
The BTR-20 can seat a full armed squad, although quite uncomfortably. It will however nicely sit 8 unarmed minifigs.
The anti-armor squad
uses a mix of HE and AP rounds to destroy enemy tanks with its two spigot rocket launchers.
The Black Commando squad
is made up of the most radical members of the De Beauvoir's Avengers who even refused to adopt the Postmodern uniform, and kept their old guerilla battledress instead (Some says that the fourth member of the squad kept “her” balaclava for a whole other reason but whatever). They'll perform spec ops missions and serve overall as an elite force for the Corps.
The two light infantry squads
perform exactly the same tasks as motorized infantry but have to walk or hich a ride on tanks to get to the battlefield. On the second row, the peach male cannon fodders form the Peach squad, always voluntary to throw themselves under enemy's tank tracks or fall on incoming grenades.
The two motorized infantry squads
are led by Colonel Anita Sarkeesian
, because why the fuck not (with the Internet Feminist Cliche). They're the one riding in BTR-20.
And that's it ! The vehicles LDDs come from here
, although I had to internally redesign both the Type 64 and 55 because the original builds were very flimsy.
