The Council of 500

Post by ninja_bait » Mon Jan 29, 2018 2:49 pm

Current Overwatch (4/23/2020):

Image
Image

~180 soldiers
~100" total construction

500 systems seceded from the Grand Galactic Empire in B.R. 2010 to form a confederacy ruled by the Council of 500. After a devastating invasion from an extra-galactic force, the Council of 500 responded with a rapid militarization, eventually building a navy rivaling the Empire's. The current leader is President Vader, who has been on a campaign to integrate more systems into his government through democratic principles, dark side farce magic, and heavy ground assaults supported by an agile navy.

After the Ninja_verse integrated into the mainline Brikverse, the Council of 500 elected to join the RC alliance and dedicate its forces to protecting the citizens of the new Konvergence Brikverse from threats such as the Immortals and Brootalz.

Army Wishlist:
- Duplicates of the Light Frigateand M.ako Interceptor
- A dedicated troop transport or dropship
- More ground infantry and more troop customization
- Some more light trucks
- More ground artillery and emplacements
- A mech or hardsuit (back on the list! :lol: )

The Conciliar Navy augments its small starfighter corp with its Light Frigate. The frigate is able to take out small starfighters and punch holes in capital ships while providing protection for juicy targets like the corvette and freighter class vessels.

ca. BR 2,018
44 studs long
Crew: Pilot and gunner, up to three passengers
4x2 two-inch Red Vorp cannons, including one chin turret and one rear deck turret
12 one-inch rockets

Surely reminds me off the Aggressor-class destroyer from Star Wars: Forces of Corruption. Looking pretty sick

Conciliar Fast Attack Tank:
Image

The Fast Attack Tank provides forward support for infantry forces, by gunning down enemy defenses and shredding air support with its laser gatling cannon. It sacrifices heavy armor for the speed necessary to keep up with airborne targets.

ca. BR 2,014
35 studs long
Crew: Single driver with computer-assisted weapons targeting
1 four-inch, six-barreled laser gatling cannon
1 three-inch, 2-barreled forward cannon

I'd love to see some animations to your creations! Especially that mini gun.

Some minifigures. There are a lot of Star Wars figures in my collection so my armies have that look. I'm slowly introducing more character and variety through cool guns and some mix-and-match.

Within the Council of 500, naval officers are often referred to as "cavalry officers" because that sounds cooler.

Cavalry Officers: Some have hats, some have guns. They command support vessels (both ground and space) and crew warships.
Image

Cavalry Technicians: Enlisted men and droids who maintain vessels. The bolt gun also allows them to do basic security work.
Image

Command Crew: The guys on the left are pilots for the corvette vessels, the two on the right are commanding officers.
Image

Other, from left to right: 2 starfighter/frigate pilots, frigate gunner, tank driver
Image

Paratroopers: Most often deployed from space-borne vessels to infiltrate and lay waste to enemy lines.

Conciliar Combat Freighter:
Image

The Conciliar Combat Freighter is an all-purpose craft. Configurations include cargo and personnel transport, electronic warfare, and combat support. It is popular with pirates for its large usable area and combat worthiness.

ca. BR 2,017
80 studs long
Crew: Pilot, Co-pilot, 2 Technicians (typ.)
8 two-inch Red Vorp cannons (two forward mounted on each side, one 2x2 turret on top)

ribbing and boxyness give it a very cool utilitarian look

Really, the navy (Cavalry?) here is great. Corvette, Light Frigate, Combat Freighter. Interesting shapes and coherent look. I'd love to see them in a battle report!
