This is also why BrikWars will never work as a Lego line.
Who are the good guys?
No one.
Who are the bad guys?
Everyone.
Why do they fight?
For no reason.

Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

If we needed to pigeonhole the brikwars universe as a lego line, the following could work:

The immortals would make excellent bad guys with their badass black color scheme, troopers, and vehicles. Also, they want to conquer the brikverse, and their leader has an evil-looking burning skull and snuggles women. They have a vague and distant Emperor and represent the evil, conquering empire.

The Assyrians have an innocent-looking and pure white color scheme, awesome vehicles, and even the token female hero (Natalya). They represent the good and honest Federation and are also led by a kind Empress.

They're fighting to conquer/protect the brikverse. Sets could include like various Assyrian and immortal vehicles duking it out.

EDIT: Come to think of it I want to actually submit this to lego, but I'll have to get permission from Warhead, Natalya, and stubby. If they assent I can develop this further with like characters and set descriptions.

Haha! Natalya would be the token female hero just like she's our token female forum member. :D

Warhead would be the best cartoon villain, shagging moms and ransacking everything in his wake.

Here's some set descriptions because I'm bored.

Impulse-priced sets: One would be the Assyrian impulse featuring a flying Vesta death bike, while the other would be the immortal impulse and feature a terrorkhan with one of those giant movable turrets and a crappy weapons rack.

$5.00: Features an immortal headhunter mech paired with an Assyrian soldier and barricade.

$10.00: Assyrian armored car and maybe two jetpacking terrorkhan.

$30.00: Immortal Blackstar Fighter-Bomber with two pilots and an Assyrian with a small AA gun.

$50.00: Assyrian Spider Tank and an immortal APC duke it out with each other. Would come with like an Assyrian driver + Natalya as commander, and two terrorkhan.

$100.00-$120.00: A miniaturized version of the Venus destroyer with an immortal Banshee gunship + pilot. Would have the Assyrian empress as well as Warhead with some badass weapon. Maybe an Assyrian pilot, gunner and two star commandos.

Notes to Lego: I see potential for flick fire missiles everywhere if so inclined. Since the immortals are underrepresented, design them really badass and well just to troll the AFOLs and have them beg for a second wave.

You seem to think Lego's prices are still in the year 2000.

Hey, at least I was looking at the realistic minifig count guide while I was writing it.

What's innocent about the Assyrians? They're a large genocidal empire which has ignored it's peoples' plights in the recent past.

If we had to have good guys then we would probably have to pick the 45th Union(a benevolent military dictatorship fighting to liberate the oppressed peach peoples) or the Time Traveling Super Jews(which lego could whitewash into the Time Traveling Justice Knights).

For a new theme, I would like something on the lines of a peaceful space setting. One that has habitable space ships and satellites. It could be based on like, space traders or something.

The Assyrian Star Empire is the most badass army (with the possible exception of the 45th, but their army is all tanks so that's right out as lego sets) on the forums- they have to be represented somehow. Also, TLG can just gloss over the genocide parts to make things black and white.

Also, the possibility of an Armored Core as an exclusive.

More badass then the Iceworlders? The Tyronians? The Manly fucking men? The VOL? The Akkadians? Warhead's army of Undead?

The Assyrian Star Empire is one of the best built armies, and one of the most badass, but not THE most badass army on the forums.

Plus, if everyone could build an army of Assyrians, it would become played out fast. The Assyrian Star Empire is awesome because when Natalya built it, it was her original creation. She could have easily made it into an army of rebel pilots, but she and in extension her brother created original forces to wage a war with it's own backstory.

I think if brikwars was to become a lego theme/official wargame it should include the 7 or so different factions from the 2001 rules.
