Republic of Transsrbija (or how to use these useless 4+figs)

Post by Duerer » Fri Feb 27, 2015 6:41 am

For a long time I had these 4+ figs flying around and thought about a way, to use them somehow in Brikwars, so I tried to write a background story for them. However, these figs are hard to customize due to the lack of playability of them.

Background:
The Autonomous Republic of Transsrbija is a quite small nation, that controls one single star system, mostly being inhabitated by these giants. According to their culture, "giants" live in a constant state state of artificial peace and pedestrianism, where everyone is forced to do everyday jobs like being a policeman, firefighter or mechanic. Intolerant as they are, they even forces the ordinary minifig populatiuon to do the same.

Overwatch:

Image
Here we have the main ground forces, with a 5 man squad, armed with rifles and an autocannon and a 3 man close quarter squad with heavy pistols and chainswords. The elite soldier in orange wields a mighty plasma gun and even has the authority to wield an OTC, that is a pretty scarce item in Transsrbija.

Image
Support infantry includes drivers and mechanics (tho I lack any vehicles right now), local law enforcement patrols, in order to keep "peace" inside the cities, a medic with a circular bonesaw and stimpaks and one of the dreaded Kommisars.

Image
Kommisars are probably the most brutal individuals in the Transsrbijan army, as they are notorous for having shot more of their own men than enemy soldiers, in order to keep up the already low morale of the army.

Image
Image
However, one man has had it with the anorakism of the local authourities and established a local branch of the Space Mafia to spread as much chaos and disarray in that small nation as possible. Before you stands "Al Strapone" accompained by his trusty fellows Igor (the strong dude) and Boris (who's quite good with knifes).

I almost have enough of these to make my own division, this is a brilliant idea, Duerer.

I wonder they'd be good for repaints, like the Friends figures.

Some time ago I bought these figures. I thought maybe I could customize them.

They look like "tall minifigures". The problem is that their parts could not be seperated and spray painting is therefor impossible. Brush painting with high precision is hard to archive on LEGO pieces.

That's unfortunate. Have you considered printing decals?

I have multiple different cheeses in my fridge at all times. The amount of different cheeses usually range from 4-7.

I also have many different alcohols at all times. That number varies a lot more, but my guess would be around 10-15 different alcohols.

I will give it a try to customize one of the figures. Using both paint and stickers. I will share the result here.

On the other hand the uniforms of my figures from rescue sub-theme are already "militaristic" looking in my opinion and they could be used soldiers directly without any additional customization.

Blame photobucket, they cut my bandwidth. Changed to imgur, for now.
