All Bow before the might of my army!

Postby ace121 » Thu Jul 17, 2008 8:08 pm

Bow. Do it. What do you mean, "I have to see your army before I surrender"? Okay, fine.

Well, after a long search today, I finally found the USB port for my camera, so I naturally had to show you how an army should be structured. A good place to start is actually having any structure whatsoever, but, whatever...

Firstly, some organized squaddies of evil. First row is light firarms squad; second is assault squad, and 3rd is heavy assault squad. The guy in the back is the captain of the platoon.

Then, as everyone knows, the modern battlefield is only under control if you have power AND mobility. Here's my 102nd Paratrooper squad. Oh yes, and the second one is a female, so don't say I'm sexist.

Don't get me wrong- black is the epitome of badassery, but something about the jungle makes green a more camoflaged colour. Here is the 201st Jungle Ops team.

Here's the bloke you'll be doing the bowing to. The guy in front is Grand High Emperor/Admiral of the Grand Fleet Ace XXI. The other fascist dude is General Max Lazerclaw, scurge of all farce weilding idiots. The guy behind both of them is Ace's private body guard, trained in the ways of jumping in front of bullets.

Oh yeah and, yes, that is a cult. Every evil genius needs one.

Sometimes stealth is needed and the fascist police aren't around. For such times, I have the Spec Ops.

And... Just to show up Doc X, I have a couple of aircraft :D . Firstly, the V-2 Valkyrie (Based off of robotech, and following instructions not by me :cry: )
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ace121/Brikwars/Valkyrie/img_2729.jpg
Does it transform? Duh...
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ace121/Brikwars/Valkyrie/img_2724.jpg

Last but not least, an aircraft of my own design: the T-1 Transgressor; the V/STOL drop ship to end all V/STOL drop ships. Shock, horror; it uses tiltrotor technology to transition between the two modes of flight.
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ace121/Brikwars/Transgressor/img_2714.jpg
The grey compartment and side mounted boxes can be removed on the ground or jetissoned in flight in case of emergency, leaving the T-1 looking somewhat like this:

Questions? Comments? Concerns?

PS: This is the point at which you surrender ;)

AWESOMESAUCE. I love how it's so organized, into platoons and stuff. Also that's a nice futuristic dropship, I like how it matches the color scheme of the V-2. My favorite squad is the evil black one at the top.

The only squads I have in my army are Green Squad, Brown Squad, Skeleton Squad, Stormtrooper Squad, and Specail Ops Squad. The rest is just a HUGE jumble of random assorted minfigs, some in pairs but most just normal people with huge weapons. Just wait until the next installment in my series of MOC-strings...

Also, ya think you could give me a link to the instructions for the Valkyrie Robotech? I had them once but I lost the bookmark for some reason...

Ah yeah, glad you like them. The instructions for the veritech can be found here:

And, yeah, I have to have coordination. If it doesn't look like an army of identical psychos, it doesn't pass the test ;)

You did a good job creating troops in different themes, and they had some pretty interesting weapons too. Does the dropship carry your paratrooper team?
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

Too organised, my apprentice. Don't we all prefer anarchism in BrikWars???

Wait...that's what dimmies are for.

Er... No, the drop ship carries my Spec Ops dudes. My paratroopers are forced to use my 7893 Passenenger Jet Plane. It's not that bad... It matches the colour scheme perfectly :oops: . They just don't fit in the drop ship with those bulky back packs and gear.

Before I argue that point, I'd like to point out that there is no such thing as anarchism. Secondly, I'm afraid it's hard to be a fascist mega-empire when there is anarchy ;)

EDIT: My Brickshelf account is public (I think). There's an entire army I forgot to mention in this post :oops:

This is a very interesting statement and I'd like to hear about it in further detail. There's no such thing as anarchism?

You believe there is anarchy but no such thing as anarchism, well here's some words for you!
dictionary.com wrote:Anarchism

noun-

1. a doctrine urging the abolition of government or governmental restraint as the indispensable condition for full social and political liberty.

2. the methods or practices of anarchists, as the use of violence to undermine government.


There you go, one of the two most reliable dictionaries in the WORLD.

Okay... I stand corrected... There is such a thing as anarchism. It's been a while since I digested my government text books :roll:

Still, I maintain that I'm right as such; anarchism does not exist in a fascist empire, as that would be a contradiction of terms. Therefore, in order to prevent anarchism, my glorious leader has deleted all reference to the word and all derivitives, and thusly, no layman knows of such a word.

Fascism wins, regardless :twisted:

PS: What took you so long to point that one out? Usually people derive pleasure from correcting me, and making me feel stupid.

I don't find joy in proving you wrong, it's just being firstborn, it's an instinct.

Waah waah waah, if anyone else had said the same thing I would have pointed it out on exactly the same schedule. Anyway this is BrikWars, making mistakes isn't exactly a crime around here, so quit taking it so seriously.

I still don't think you pointed it out in a good measure of time. Correct me faster next time.
