Brikwars Faction IFF Sheet

Postby Kastrenzo » Wed Dec 28, 2016 8:05 pm

I was kind of intrigued by how in the 1600s until the 1900s. most militaries used more or less the same style uniform,  and just alternated colors by country. These were called "Facing colors"
It often gets a lot more intricate in the composition of those uniforms,  like Infantry had white trim, artillery wore blue trim, whatever.  but the general basis was things like "Russians wear green, French wear white, later blue.  British wear red.  etc"

I've made -something- of that sort for several BW factions,  I added all of the Superpowers,  and every major power or active I could think of plus a few just put in there to fill the gaps.  

This would be seen as something like an idiot's guide to the galaxy... If you see a minifig wearing armor in this pattern,  they're proooobably from this faction.  But not always.

For the most part I've kept it to the most basic pattern available.  usually for grunt infantry.
As this goes along, What I might start doing for some of the factions, is if they have -enough- of them, I can add alternates too.  Right now the only one that has alternates is the USSSR,  because Zipp's differs from Duerer's.  and I also have my own too *I added pretty much all of my current factions spare for 1 or 2 shitty unfinished ones*

Also, I apologize if the Demonym for your empire is incorrect.  

If you'd like another added, just tell me what you need.  I'll add them once I have enough to fill a full row.
* Magikstrate,  Poland and Galacia are considered the "primary factions" of the Magenta, Purple and Gold Sectors respectively.  These sectors are known to have multiple factions within them, big and small

The most common colours I see here are white, black and grey. Why do you guys think that is?

This is awesome!

If this is based on general infantry, I would say house fang has light grey legs, but that is just being nit-picky.

This is what standard Monet (that'd be the right demonym) soldiers look like, whereas you depicted the marines which are supposed to be elite soldiers.

Btw, Lietuvan is written with just one "i" and my Soviets have neon green visors atm.
Aside that, this is a neat little chart you made there.

And the iteration of purple sector Soviets are the same as magenta so you could add that as well

Ok

The mistakes were because I was pulling pictures off the wiki, not searching for forum posts.

the monet for example, I didnt see that pic on the wiki .

This is actually super handy for someone trying to make a space faction. I'll keep a tab on this for later.  :wink:

Lots of pieces come in those colours, and they go with pretty much anything. Buy a few star wars kits and you can be set for ages in grey bricks.

This is pretty impressive, just two minor things.
One, I don't see the Vol on here Two, those Immortals are from Silent's legion, Warhead's own Terrorkhan, who are the most commonly used Immortal troops in forum battles (despite the fact that they are the elites) are all black (pretty simple to do lol).

Other than that, great job!

Volse are VoL.

I was under the impression "Volse" was a play on Norse.  as Vol are like vikings
