I'm fleshing out ground weaponry for both of my main factions, the C500 and GGE, and their allies in preparation for a big final battle to conclude the Enter the Ninja_verse saga.
Image

The GGE gets new and updated ground support. A MBT, updates to the jeeps to make them a little more battle-worthy, small artillery guns. The similarities between the M-Throne Curris and the GGE Jeep inspired the addition of a mounted gun.
Image
Image

The C500 has always had more and better ground support than the Empire to make up for their naval weaknesses, but they've recently lagged behind. Some sketch work for trucks and a dropship to make up for the gap:
Image
Image

Progress on the jeep-style truck so far:
Image

The C500 is also getting some politicians at Kaplan's request.
Image

The Space Repair Garage got some sweet bikes to go with the main repair truck. Also have a heavy fighter in progress. The rear end has me stumped at the moment (the tail here is just a placeholder) and some of the engine greebles still elude me.
Image
Image

Here's an early look at the T.L.A. Pericles which is a hero ship that's been mentioned a couple times in the Austin's Box story line and hopefully will be getting a bigger role in the next part of the Ragnablok story. Heavily inspired by theblackdog's style, of course, as well as the Nebulon Ranger from the comic series Tales of The Jedi.
Image

This is a doodle more than anything else, but I think if the ducks have a hero it would have to be Trogdor the Burninator. Based heavily on the works of those that came before.

And I'll leave with this, the famous Brootal Brew coffee stand:

Broobucks?
Caribroo Coffee?
Dunkin Brootalz? (Dunkin Broonuts is a bad name)
Broo and Bizmarks?
Regardless of the name for the Brootal coffee shop chain, awesome build! :D

Only one question - where did the head of your coffee shop employee come from? I don't remember that head print.

Trying some experiments in Microspace. See how many you recognize. These are in 1:10 scale, which I think is a bit bigger than Blackdog scale, but smaller than Warhead scale.

It never ceases to amaze me how much detail you can get into such tiny builds... :tiger:

I've got updates to my microspace stuff. Again, these are scaled to 1:10 of minifig scale, so 100-studs becomes 10-studs. Seems to be a perfect scale to shrink SHIPs and large starfighters. I started to create some new ships as well, mostly trying to imagine what a real-life SHIP might look like for some of these factions. Who knows, maybe one day I will have the bricks to make some of these in full scale.

These are great. I love the mini W.U.N.D.E.R., and the Britannian heavy and fighters are also really well done.
