The Hodgpodgian force, is one to be reckoned with. Possesing powerful interstellar craft, these vehicles have seen many a battle, and thier scared hides mix matched plating hull painting and smorgasborg of weapopns show this. Thier Civilization was based out of a lost colony ship, sent to find new deposites of ABS in the far reaches of the Bloody eye nebula. Upon reaching the nebula they promptly lost communication with the ISNCA (Interstellar space navigation and communication array). COntinuing deeper into the nebula the started to run afoul of huge conglomerations of material the scanners came back, confirming rich fields of ABS. Upon coming upon the nearest Large debri field, mining crews were dispatched but what they found whas not huge ABS ore ladent asteroids, or dust fields but ancient wrecks, after years of investigation, and gathering it was concluded by the fleets science officers that these where no odd affect of congruent gravity waves washing up chance debri. This was a an entire galactic sector that had seen much fighting. After a few more years the fleet finally found a suitable planet to settle the more permament sites needed for a large scale salvage operation. Little did they know that peoples still inhabited the nebula that had not yet known the word peace. Out of the sky on large planetary landers and assault shuttles, came the forces of the VOL and the RoCC. Many battles have ensued since, turning the exploration fleet into conquerors. though in the rush to get the most fighting units to the field the Hodgepodgians build in a maner emphasizing utility, carrying capacity, and compactness. It was here the the Flagship Hodgepodge was developed, and Here that the swarmer was developed, having large amounts of forces to draw on if not the refined and battleready troops of other forces.
Weapons and tactics, by in large Hodgepodgian forces, come to battle with a large array of weapons, usually based around tactical needs, and wants. The forces are highly segregated, first in base by thier pants color, black for starfaring forces, brown for the officer core, green for the assasins, gray for the snipers, tan for the techs, and white for the laborers and civilians (including mercs) Most Hodgepodgian combat forces have a light body armor, while others have unifornms based on needs. Of note are seargents seargents can regularly picked out by thier sunglasses, and usually dual wield pistols, and sometimes carbines. Officers are kitted out in a vast array of differing weapons, but in general have some sort of flamethrower attachment to thier weapons.
The grand leader of the Hodgepodgians is the great Salmagond, one of the rare farce users and wielder of two blades, he is always accompanied by a set of redshirts, armed with axe and IABS(instant astro binding substance) to help prevent damage to thier lord, the IABS comes in a can and can make a small wall or used with several cans a small structure, akin to a bunker. Also accompanying the grand leader, is Two body gaurds, marked with the 'x' these loyal henchmen are experts at either CC, or longrange sniping.

Officers with thier various weapons.
The hodgpodgian assasins, in thier black armor and green pants, wield chainswords, and are always accompanied by a quick growing plant that help conceal thier otherwise brash nature, pearing out from behind dark goggles, so they don't get blood in thier eyes
the Science corps, wielding thier trusty bone saws, all have a basic medical knowledge though they know more about rocket science than the biology of the standard lego man, that doesn't mean they don't ry to help though generally thier distracted by shiny new and slightly explosive equipment.
Samuek the one handed starpilot leads thwe Hodgepodgian forces fighter craft into the frey, but being a civilian he has some alarming tendencie to flee the fight to get his precious starship nebba repaired
Space man Olio is always coming into battle overequiped, but then all he has is put to good use, one of the other Farce users in this force
Ships Crew, its just what they are watched over by the overseer cracking his two whips to spur them onward to ever more exacting standards
