I think a lot of factions start as the stalest one-note riffs on overplayed cliches... and then by the time you're putting together your second vehicle you're magically coming up with funny twists that make it unique. There's something about digging in and working with dumb ideas that opens up the brain and makes better ideas start happening.

Dump a bunch of Legos out onto the floor then take some wheels and try to build a vehicle of some sort. Go from there.

Both are valid starting points. There is no one way to build a faction.

my favorite way of getting ideas is snorting lines off of the washboard abs of male models, really gets the creative juices flowing

A way I made my subfactions is I just threw together all my minifigs who looked similar and thought up why they hate other minifigs, that might also be Worth a try.
