I don't think I'll do that, mainly because an even remotely decent train needs lots of parts I have, and because I've already put plenty of effort into making the current design feasible. I may try it, but it's not looking very likely. I suppose if I did go for a train, it would have to be the kind that does not go on any tracks and just has wheels. Not to mention I have no idea what a good size would be. Maybe I'll try a few things, since it gives me a good way to kill time.
As for unit cohesion, The vehicles probably won't fit much of a theme, but I'll try and make the soldiers and such have a central concept.
EDIT:Tried out a train shape, and while interesting, it would require a complete overhall, going from a mobile base to more of a large, moving platform. It would still make for an interesting setup, but I'm going to have to stew on the idea for a bit. I think I might actually end up going with the train, if only because I could ignore some features one would expect on a base. Stewing on it.
