The Great War: Union States Updated: August 10th 2019

Post by bann154 » Tue Aug 30, 2016 8:43 pm

The union states is a group of 7 states that form up into a single government that exists south of the Common Wealth. Each state is entrusted to raise and maintain their own troops and vehicles thus resulting in many different variations of uniforms and vehicles but there are a few vehicle designs that are commonly produced everywhere. However they owe no allegiance to the Common Wealth but are friendly towards them. Currently they have not yet decided to join them as allies due to them currently having other threats to deal with at their own southern borders. This army is made for The Great War world.

Image
Overwatch. This army was kind of a change for me because it violates almost every single army building guideline that i normally adhere to. Currently the army has 20 Infantry from the 1st states 2nd battalion as well as 20 infantry from the 5th sates 1st battalion as well as 8 Black Guards 4 artillery crewmen 4 pilots and two heroes.

Image
Standard infantry from the 1st states 2nd battalion are stoic soldiers armed with rifles and a the burning heart of a patriot.

Image
Standard infantry from the 5th states 1st battalion are some of the newest recruits fresh and eager to join the front lines.

Image
don't be fooled by the Black Guard's smiling faces they are each a stone cold close combat murder machine each uses a revolver and a saber for trench fighting.

Image
Due to his recent failures to repel the Sovak Union and Ethias Lucas Grimm received a demotion to a captain of the black guard.

Image
Since Grimms demotion a new general was needed to lead the Union States armies and organize a counter attack as such Robert Miller a highly decorated military officer with multiple tours in Afria has been sent to lead the troops.

Image
Field Guns are important for trench warfare that rages across the world as they can be used as artillery or they can be used to punch holes in the armor of tanks attempting to cross no mans land.

Image
The Ogre mark 2 was commissioned after the initial invasion of the Sovak Union for the mark 1 was deemed under armed and under armored as such the mark 2 was equipped with 4 prototype missiles on one arm and either a pair of pom pom cannons that fire a high explosive shell at a very high rate or a 45mm cannon to punch holes through enemy armor.

Image
Finally the newest addition to the armories of the Union States is the tortoise quad walker. It is armed with a 75mm cannon as well as two turret mounted machineguns.

Decals used for this army are from the Minifig Customisation Index

The dudes with the black hats remind me of the Iron Brigade.

Another Necro, awesome work on this faction, What about it broke your building rules?

I'm excited to see the US's response to the SU's aggressive push towards Vrock!

Thanks! Well i really don't like groups of 4 for some reason they just seem to small to really be a squad in my opinion i prefer squads of 5-6.

That makes some sense. Lose 1 dude out of 4 and your one misshap from half strength. Lose 1 dude of 5 or 6 you jane some breathing room, with out making it bloated with figs

Oh indeed you can lose and entire squad if the enemy hits well enough it also makes it harder to have sarges and weapon specialists in a squad of 4.
