The Council of 500

Postby ninja_bait » Mon Jan 29, 2018 2:49 pm

Current Overwatch (2/26/2018):

Image

69 soldiers
1 Wampa
2 1" Drones
156" total construction

500 systems seceded from the Grand Galactic Empire in B.R. 2010 to form a confederacy ruled by the Council of 500.  After a devastating invasion from an extra-galactic force, the Council of 500 responded with a rapid militarization, eventually building a navy rivaling the Empire's.  The current leader is President Vader, who has been on a campaign to integrate more systems into his government through democratic principles, dark side magic, and heavy ground assaults supported by an agile navy.

Shown here is the president's yacht, Counciliar One (the black space submarine), and a standard expeditionary battlegroup.  The ground forces typically include a large number of infantry regulars, ninja bikers, a variety of specialists, and commando teams, supported by a variety of support vehicles and mobile artillery.  Air support is provided by a Sky Shark corvette, a combat freighter, a light frigate, and a M ako Interceptor (WIP).

Army Wishlist:
- Duplicates of the Light Frigateand M ako Interceptor
- A dedicated troop transport or dropship
- More ground infantryand more troop customization
- Some more light trucks
- More ground artillery and emplacements
- A mech or hardsuit

Army Details
Spoiler: show
Counciliar Infantry (31): The Counciliar infantry is conscripted from young men who fail higher education.  They are colloquially known as the red caps.
Image

Rocketeers (12):  The army is led by General Lisbeth Govinder, who handpicks soldiers to join her elite Rocketeers.  Rocketeers are equipped with hard-G jumppacks and a size-2 grenade launcher.
Image

Stormtroopers (12):  For more sophisticated operations, the Council of 500 uses well-trained stormtroopers.  This band is led by Captain Devon Redbird.
Image

Corellian Guardsmen (10):  Guardsmen are deployed to protect high ranking officials and politicians.
Image

Counciliar Commandos (5):  Commandos are deployed into the toughest situations and operations.  They have multi-function weaponry and specialize in different kinds of destruction.

Image

Naval Crewmen (7):  These guys also drive ground vehicles.
Image

Surely reminds me off the Aggressor-class destroyer from Star Wars: Forces of Corruption. Looking pretty sick

ca. BR 2,014
35 studs long
Crew: Single driver with computer-assisted weapons targeting
1 four-inch, six-barreled laser gatling cannon
1 three-inch, 2-barreled forward cannon

Some minifigures.  There are a lot of Star Wars figures in my collection so my armies have that look.  I'm slowly introducing more character and variety through cool guns and some mix-and-match.

Within the Council of 500, naval officers are often referred to as "cavalry officers" because that sounds cooler.

Cavalry Officers: Some have hats, some have guns.  They command support vessels (both ground and space) and crew warships.
Image

Cavalry Technicians: Enlisted men and droids who maintain vessels.  The bolt gun also allows them to do basic security work.
Image

Command Crew: The guys on the left are pilots for the corvette vessels, the two on the right are commanding officers.
Image

Other, from left to right: 2 starfighter/frigate pilots, frigate gunner, tank driver
Image

Paratroopers: Most often deployed from space-borne vessels to infiltrate and lay waste to enemy lines.

Conciliar Combat Freighter:
Image

The Conciliar Combat Freighter is an all-purpose craft.  Configurations include cargo and personnel transport, electronic warfare, and combat support.  It is popular with pirates for its large usable area and combat worthiness.

Crew: Pilot, Co-pilot, 2 Technicians (typ.)
8 two-inch Red Vorp cannons (two forward mounted on each side, one 2x2 turret on top)

ribbing and boxyness give it a very cool utilitarian look

Really, the navy (Cavalry?) here is great. Corvette, Light Frigate, Combat Freighter. Interesting shapes and coherent look. I'd love to see them in a battle report!
