Monolith Battleplates Faction Index

Post by Kastrenzo » Thu Jan 31, 2019 11:44 pm

In observance of Ragnablok 2019, I "reset" my old kanon, and remade a few factions, Physically many are the same, but with some thematic changes.

Below you will find an index of all of my own armies and other groups. Each post will have at least 1 picture of assembled minifigs and vehicles. It may also have a faction insignia, and/or a Wiki article. All descriptions and details will be found only on the wiki articles.

Pictures themselves will simply have short descriptions telling what is in each picture.
If you want to see what's what, and don't want to look at the wiki page. Click on the link to go to flickr, I have marked out what each unit or group of units is.

Major
The largest, most developed, and most featured armies, Having well around 100 Minifigs, or otherwise backed up by significant amounts of vehicles and war machines
Monolith Imperiya
Bratva


Signifigant
Medium sized, lesser developed but still somewhat significant Armies. Usually hovering around the 40 Minifig mark
Armata Alliance
Vorhut Order
Black Legion
The Syndicate


Lesser
Smaller Factions that are less developed and just don't make the cut, usually revolving around a specific style or theme, and under 40 Minifigs
Svoboda Clan
Echelon
Insurgent Crew
Coalition Navy


Minor
The smallest organized factions, Usually consisting of a small unique design comprising no more than 15 minifigs.
Razor PMC
Digger Clan

Imperiya

Image
http://brikwars.com/wiki/index.php?title=Imperiya

Imperiya is a superpower of a faction, Revolving around the principles of making other minifigs calm and orderly. Advocating "Security, Law and Order*, concepts that are all but heretical to some Minifigs. Their oppressive ways are backed up by Tidal waves of soldiers, Elite troops, heavy war machines, and dozens of officers, commanders, and heroes. Their way of life is often a raison d'être for many other groups. Whether to fight against them, or to take advantage of the power they wield and use as an advantage to their own agendas.

Led by the co-commanders Varone and Sergachev, They hold dominion over dozens if not hundreds of plates, And are one of the few powers in the area capable of maintaining a presence on the Omega Realm, the legendary infinite underworld dimension of the battleplates

This picture was taken in 2017-2018. The army is Currentley too big to fit on the tables I have available at the moment, but it's remained mostly the same, individual pics of the 2019 appearance is below , eventually once it's working again, I'll spoiler it

Vehicles

Moskit
Image20190410_002423 by Charon, on Flickr
The Moskit is a lightly armored fire support drone. Often used in urban battles to haul gear, casualties, or to sacrifice in battle rather than risking a live trooper.

D1 Pionka
Image20190410_002413 by Charon, on Flickr
The Pionka is the Monolith Imperiya's primary howitzer model. Designed to be towed, but light enough that a bunch of strong Minifigs could move it. It lobs shells at great distance for some amusing fireworks

ImageHusky Truck by Charon, on Flickr
The Husky is a light work and service truck used mostly by base patrols, engineers and other non combat units.

Samoyed
ImageSamoyed by Charon, on Flickr

Dozor
ImageDozor by Charon, on Flickr
The Dozor is the closest thing the Monolith Imperiya has to a wheeled APC. Although it's not as heavily armored as one should be, It sports big wheels, a powerful drive, and a big machinegun. The Vehicle isn't used as much since the whole model was more or less made obsolete by replacements in other fields.

Yeger
Image2019-04-10_12-22-22 by Charon, on Flickr
The Yeger is a new vehicle introduced in R2019 that it's designers planned to have it compete with the Dozor, or Pandur. So far it's really done nothing but add more confusion to the faction's wheeled APC problem. Sporting heavier armor but still carrying Stupidly obvious weak points in the cockpit. Imperiya engineers seem to be obsessed with making their vehicles a big truck first, and a fighting vehicle second.

Bryusa
ImageCondor by Charon, on Flickr
The Bryusa IFV is Monolith Imperiya's primary frontline transport. Armored like a tank and bristling with anti-infantry weapons. It's suspension leaves something to be desired. But overall the vehicle has been solid for their Army for a long time.

ImageBmaster by Charon, on Flickr
The Malka is a "Seige Tank" which is a designation for a heavy tank that is designed for both artillery firing, and attacking hardened structures. It's slow, extremely heavy, and moderately armored. But the "Molotok" Gun it carries is powerful enough to flip an APC or small tank just with the explosive force alone.

Ogre
ImageSamson by Charon, on Flickr
The Ogre is a Super Heavy Tank that acts as both a mobile command post as well as a twin barreled death monster. Bristling with OT guns, Flamethrowers, Machineguns, and even some big stupid ram blades on the front, The Ogre is Imperiya's Signature vehicle, until something dumber gets dreamed up in an R/D lab.


Aircraft/Spacecraft

Berkut
ImageBerkut by Charon, on Flickr
The Berkut is a Gunship-Transport hybrid, a flying tank with armor busting cannons, rockets, and a cargo bay large enough to carry several minifigs. It's VTOL engines are loud and powerful.

Bratva


Image
http://brikwars.com/wiki/index.php?title=Bratva

Bratva is the sister faction to Imperiya, When the "Old Alliance" of Civil Defenders broke apart because of plots employed by the Black Legion, About half of it's leaders formed the Bratva, or "Brotherhood" An alliance of military trained groups dedicated to protecting the "Free Cities" of the plates. Bratva touts itself as the Free and Just alternative to the Imperiya, but both are similar in many ways.

Bratva military units Comprise of both professional troops as well as sympathetic mercenaries. They also weild considerable numbers of light and heavy war machines, and Elite units.

Infantry

Grunts

Svoboda Clan

Image
http://brikwars.com/wiki/index.php?title=Svoboda

Svoboda, translation meaning "Freedom" is a smaller Clan that rose up in response to the Vorhut Order, an organization of Anarchists and Shit Disturbers who like nothing more than to disrupt the serious business hard-asses of Powers like Vorhut and Imperiya, Their small size limits them primarily to guerilla tactics, But they prove a constant thorn in the side of factions much larger than them. Svoboda troops generally do not follow any standard uniform or equipment theme, Everyone simply gathering more equipment as they continue to be successful.

Black Legion
"Let the Universe Burn!"

Image

A Legion of the Damned, brought on by the events of Ragnablok. The Black legion is the cancer of the Battleplates, a warband of Dark Magik users and Demonic worshippers who raid, pillage and burn across the known world. Appearing out of nowhere and vanishing just as quickly, the Warband of the Black Legion has declared war against the rest of the Brikverse, Their patron god "Chernobog" implores them to engage in an endless war, and bring death and destruction to all forces of Order and Peace.

The Black Legion's forces primarily consist of heavily armed and armored, battle hardened mentally unstable fiends who relish the chance to Slaughter, and be slaughtered in Chernobog's honor. They cannot be reasoned with, and they are one of the few groups to openly use Dark Energy weapons, a banned tek across the battleplates as it can permanetley kill off a minifig from the Battleplates, effectively capable of killing Immortal beings and upsetting the natural order of the Plates.

Image20190127_172621 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Chaos Marines
Image20190409_003420 by Charon, on Flickr
The corrupted, twisted and insane footsoldiers of the Legion, Chaos Marines come from all walks of life, and when they join the service of the Dark God, they typically fashion their own tainted, edgy armor. They use mostly the same weapon, a Slug firing automatic rifle

Hell Knights
Image20190409_003956 by Charon, on Flickr
Hell Knights are the heavily armored veterans of the legion, utilizing heavy cannons more suited for use in a tank than a footsoldier.. some also weild huge melee weapons like swords, axes and hammers. They are feared on the battlefield and known for leading groups of lesser minions.

Devastators
Image20190409_004704 by Charon, on Flickr

Sorcerers
Image20190409_004110 by Charon, on Flickr

Shades
Image20190409_004338 by Charon, on Flickr
While the Legion is the very definition of a lack of subtlety, Shades are nonetheless Legion agents who practice cloak and dagger techniques, Swords in the back, or a sniper slug in the face... When the Legion needs to do something unexpected.




Basilisk Tank
ImageBlack Legion Basilisk Tank by Charon, on Flickr

The Basilisk is the Legion's primary model of battle tank. Comparable to Imperiya Bratva and Vorhut tanks. It is heavily armored with gruesome spikes and haphazardly applied extra protection. And bristling with weapons

The Syndikat

http://brikwars.com/wiki/index.php?title=Syndikat

The Syndikat (or Syndicate) is a secretive alliance of corporations that's militarized assets stalk the battleplates in an endless war to sabotage rivals, and steal their treasures or secrets. The group's leader is not known, as it's led by a "Shadow Council", Syndikat's forces are all about stealth. Striking from the shadows and even going as far as using cloaking tek. They are almost as despised as the Black Legion due to their tendancy to attack pretty much everyone.

Syndikate Operatives are elite troopers with weapons and armored copied and improved on from other rival factions, and their vehicles all employ some kind of stealth technology, whether hiding themselves from radars and detectors, to outright cloaking to the naked eye.

The Razor PMC is a small group of tryhards that advertise themselves as guns for hire... Allying with other groups all over... for a price. Their services are typically only sought after by other smaller groups in their wars against each other.

Insurgent

The Insurgent Crew is a small Battle clan who carry an affinity for getting involved in the middle of other group's fights. They love to destroy towns and cities in the intense fighting their urban warfare style brings. They exclusively recruit Peach minifigs.
They don't have a home base, as they are constantly on the move, but they do hold influence in the Tau and Upsilon clusters, both already noted for being contested between other factions.

Image20190127_162348 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Insurgent Crew doesn't have any uniform or standard equipment. Smaller groups within the faction may wear distinct styles, but the majority will just throw together the most efficient gear for the job from what they can find.

Krieger

The Krieger Clan is a smaller group known for high quality equipment and their distinctive yellow patterned armor. However being one of the smallest groups in the fray, their spiffy equipment is mostly an afterthought. Krieger is notorious for allying itself with other groups in larger wars, and developed a reputation for being turncoats.

Image20190127_174157 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Krieger Clan has developed it's own basic armor and weapons. And they are one of the only minor groups to have their own vehicles. Namely their "Blitz" APC. The design and performance was so good that Imperiya Engineers tried to talk them into selling it to them
