Infantry close up.
Former mercenary combat engineer, Slaughterday morning cartoon star, and President of the T.L.A., Bob the Unbuilder (left) has a near 100% approval rating among his citizens, and is re-elected every Rekonstruktion on his famous slogan, "FUCK YES WE CAN!" With the T.L.A.'s various legislatures operating in a state of permanent gridlock, he often takes matters into his own hands in politics and on the battlefield. In both arenas, his tool of choice is the Chain of Command, a combination hammer and flail forged from Hammerman's legendary cudgel and given to him by the Kaiser of Bavaria.
His Cabinet often accompanies him into battle. Left to right: the Director of Homeland Security, the Secretary of Offense, the Secretary of Defense, and the Secretary of Education.
During his first 100 days in office, President Bob cannibalized the Presidential limo to create a Hover Killdozer, which he and his cabinet ride into battles and, much more rarely, diplomatic meetings.
Cloned from an incomplete sample of Deadly SpaceMan DNA, Chrome is one of the T.L.A.'s most dangerous soldiers and was instrumental in repelling the Britannian invasion of Refuge. He wears a combination jetpack and life support system, and is armed with an experimental plasma gun.
Captain Fury is the T.L.A.'s ace pilot, and has flown 294 combat missions, scored 439 kills, and performed 183 landings. He carries a heavy gauss repeater in the cockpit of his aircraft in case he is shot down. Where it actually fits is anybody's guess.
After the Third Impact, the surface of Refuge is filled with marauding Angels and other, even more dangerous phenomena. Porters are used to carry supplies through areas too dangerous for vehicles to navigate, and the best of these is Sam Porter Bridges - the Man Who Delivers. After traveling throughout Refuge on several assignments for the President himself, Sam has headed off-world to gather intelligence on the current state of the Galaxy - and rumors of an upcoming apocalypse that might dwarf even the Third Impact.
Sam is armed with a prototype Positron Rifle, developed from autopsies of Ramiel-class Angels. Its firepower and ability to shoot through AT fields make it an excellent self-defense weapon on the LCL-soaked wastelands of Refuge.
With the T.L.A.'s population once again reduced to a fraction of its former size, most professional soldiers have joined the ranks of the elite Jump Trooper Commando Teams. Armed with heavy Rail Carbines with underslung grenade launchers, these troops specialize in fast hit-and-fade strikes and are often deployed to assassinate enemy elite squads and commanders.
As their name implies, Jump Trooper Fire Teams are teams of Jump Troopers specially trained and equipped to set everything on fire. Their flamethrowers can mow down infantry in large numbers, and their squad leader carries a Napalm Launcher that can set fire to large areas of the battlefield to block an enemy advance. Their heavier weaponry and fireproof suits make them somewhat less mobile than Commando Teams.
Although it was marketed towards kids, Bob the Unbuilder's Slaughterday morning cartoon show acquired a surprisingly large fandom of adults. Calling themselves Bobbies, the most enthusiastic of these fans often cosplay as construction workers and take to the battlefield in the hopes of imitating their heroes' feats or even meeting them in person. While they're often the butt of jokes among rival armies, those who actually fight against them soon learn that few forces in the world are more dangerous than adult fans of children's cartoons.
The Speedy Hovering Infantry Transport (S.H.I.T.) is the T.L.A.'s standard infantry fighting vehicle, with a six-troop carrying capacity and a pair of miniguns for fire support.
Troops embarked. This is really designed more for regular infantry - which I haven't built yet since I don't have the right torsos - so they should fit better than the elites do.
The Speedy Modular Armed Reconnaissance Tank (S.M.A.R.T.) is the T.L.A.'s standard light combat vehicle. Its standard configuration mounts a pair of mortar launchers that are effective against infantry and light to medium vehicles, but the T.L.A.'s weapons designers are hard at work on new weapons modules to increase its versatility.
This was the last thing I put together before publishing the Codex, and while I like what I have so far, it could definitely use some overall detail work in addition to the alternate loadouts.
Although it's starting to show its age, the T.L.A.'s heavy hovertank chassis is still a lethally effective platform when properly outfitted. The Battlefield Railgun Enemy Armor Destroyer (B.R.E.A.D.) is one of its most lethal forms yet, mounting a massive rail cannon to turn it into a tank destroyer. A battery of secondary autocannon allows it to finish off its targets at close range.
Bobbies often ride into battle on civilian hover trucks fitted with construction equipment as makeshift weapons. This one sports a battle grinder attached to an articulated arm.
Particularly well-equipped fans will ride into battle on Road Rollers. Since their slow movement speed often can't match their passengers' lust for battle, Bobbies compensate by dropping these massive vehicles from orbit, aiming to land directly atop enemy troops. Sirens attached to the Road Rollers' chassis emit a terrifying scream as they descend into the enemy ranks, crushing the unfortunate soldiers caught underneath.
