CBL (China Buffet Legion)

The China Buffet Legion was formed once China bought the rest of Asia and a lot of the sea floor for no apparent reason other than to cover it with China Buffets. And then they bought the Moon, which they turned into a really big China Buffet. Anyway, they gradually accrued a large amount of fairly useless space, which they also turned into a bunch of China Buffets. And also a powerful military empire.

Not half bad at all, I like - but I would like to see some more creative torso usage - I am not a fan of cloan torsos.

Other than that I like all of them - I also love the fact the demolitions soldiers cannot see a damn thing, so they have some kind of one-way vision black mask? Or are they completely blind and you just strap bombs to them and point them at the direction of the enemy and then tell them to run?

:omnom:

That'd be hilarious. I'm also very interested in the origin of this armies backstory. Also, great army! :D

Cool army. An idea that came to my mind is that you should make a platoon of Battle Cooks for this China Buffet army.

I absolutely love this back story, and I don't even like Chinese food.

So the word "china" was used so much and their armor is white I was thinking that the armor is made of china, like white ceramic dinner plates.

It's a good army, anything Star Wars based is cool. I mean, the armour is functional looking so they look right. Gives you a good uniform look as well. Plus, I'm speaking from experience when I say it's easier to make a uniformed army when you already have a bunch of one particular lego theme. I unfortunately stopped playing with lego before any Star Wars lego was being sold... but obviously started again.

I'm glad the leader of China has a Japanese Gairaigo name...

Otherwise I like how you improved upon the clone torsos. Some back story would be appreciated.

I really find funny the fact that you mixed asian-style of heads with occidental-style of heads in a Chinese army ;) More seriously I think you really did a good job on these little guys, they look really cool. Need some vehicules though :/ ^_^
