Thanks all! I really appreciate the feedback! I should have their opposing force up some time later (PS, they are blue)
@Collette: Thanks for that nugget of wisdom, judging by their name I'd say that's exactly who would do such a thing
@ RunsWithLegos: I totally wouldn't mind! Shoot me a PM about them so i could include them accurately in future narrative
@Zuppon: Maybe the REPCONN could cut some kind of deal with ZMC to increase rock production AND lower it's personnel costs...for a nominal, no refundable fee or maybe access to some sort of tech that they might find useful.....
@ IVHorseman: I almost went the NCR route, but i couldn't justify the helmets!! If i find or purchase some more appropriate gear i will probably convert them.
