Kast's Faction Index - 2021

Post by Kastrenzo » Thu Jan 31, 2019 11:44 pm

In observance of Ragnablok 2019, I "reset" my old kanon, and remade a few factions, Physically many are the same, but with some thematic changes.

Below you will find an index of all of my own armies and other groups. Each post will have at least 1 picture of assembled minifigs and vehicles. It may also have a faction insignia, and/or a Wiki article.

The categorization of Main, Major and Minor does not necessarily reflect each Empire/Country/Faction's place within the world, lore wise. It usually does, but there are a few small armies I created that are supposed to be Major, faraway entities, that simply wont be grown in briks because I don't feel like building 5 more enormous armies. They're just worldbuilding fluff

World Map
Mir is presented as a terrestrial world, in an alternate dimension. Travel to and from this realm is restricted to a limited number of portals. divided into 5 continents. The Serican Isles, Xindra, Kraiena, Vaenia, and Slavonica, the mainland.
All personal content takes place on the mainland. The rest of the world is just fluff, with various groups made to represent their inhabitants.

The Realm itself can best be described as a Fantasy world that's had sci-fi and post apocalypse tech and tropes injected into it. With elements from many fictional worlds like Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Tiberian CnC, STALKER, Kenshi, Ace Combat and 40K all mixed together in an amalgamation of nonsense.

Ordo Omega

Image Image
https://brikwars.com/wiki/Ordo_Omega

The Ordo Omega is a Religious Order bordering Psuedo-State founded by a rogue clan of the Serican Empire, They largely advocate for the destruction of all things deemed to be "Evil" which primarily means the forces of Ruin like the Black Legion, but due to ideological differences over the free use of Magik, has also brought them into contention with their other neighbors, even the Slavonik Imperiya. They are one of the few powers on Mir with their own extradimensional portal. Allowing them to maintain relations and membership within the Rubrum Crucesignatis Alliance.

Image20200620_001855 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

Insurgents
ImageOrdo Insurgents by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
An Unofficial, but huge contribitor to the Ordo Omega's fighting capability are the numerous armed fifth-columnists, radicals, rebels, sympathizers and ideologues who support their cause against both the forces of Evil and the pragmatic bureaucrats in rival neighboring governments. Often inserted into Imperial or Armata cities to cause destruction as they are often indistinguishable from the civilian population save for their red masks and scarves

Fanatics
ImageFanatics by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
While also not an official role within the castes of the Order, Insurgents are known to use suicide bombers against the enemy, particularly against vehicles.

Order Warriors
ImageWarriors by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Basic footsoldiers with equipment on par with most regular armies, Although their training may consist of more ideological fanaticism and religious dogma than traditional tactics. They are not however, the primary fighting force of the Order, they are meant to augment the higher ranked, heavily armed Paladins as followers.

Order Paladins
ImagePaladins by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Elite frontline crusaders of the Order, wearing heavy armor, brandishing automatic SMGs, light machineguns, Shotguns, and beamswords.

Acolytes
ImageAcolytes by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Acolytes are the dedicated battle mages of the Order. Some using a magik staff, others risking life and limb practicing magik without. They perform a variety of offensive and support abilities on the field. They also fill the role of a traditional combat medik.

Order Vicars
ImageVicars by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Vicars are the field officers of the Order, They are best described as Commisars, spending just as much time shouting battle cries and propaganda, as they do beating their own troops and killing the enemy.

Zealot Suit
ImageZealot Suit by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Zealot Suits are a light mech frame piloted by a Vicar, Utilizing a giant overcompensating beamsword, flamethrowers, and an obnoxiously big shield.

Paragon APC

Invictus Heavy Tank
ImageInvicta Heavy Tank by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

They maintain a respectable military force for their own defense, and are allied with the neighboring First Echelon Corporation. Much of their military is built around Hover and Walker tek.

Svoboda Clan

Image
http://brikwars.com/wiki/index.php?title=Svoboda

Svoboda, translation meaning "Freedom" is a Rebel movement that rose up in response to the rise of several Imperialist groups on the Mainland. In a region where safe, habitable land is scarce, and refugees are refused entry into many of the safe havens. Svoboda is a group of activists and anarchists who dedicate themselves to messing with authority, whether it be the Imperiya, the League, the Order, or anyone else. They are the Chaotic Good of the Realm.

They consist of Cultists, Terrorists, Mentally Unhinged Psychopaths, Edgelords, Monsters, Dark Magik Users, Corrupt Cyborgs and so many more worse things. Their Dark God is the entity known as Chernobog

Their main army is known as the Black Legion, however other smaller warbands usually devoted to other, lesser dark gods also exist within the Dominion.

Marauders
ImageMarauders by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Skilled converts and experienced veterans. Corrupted by the forces of Ruin they are the most iconic and arguably most dangerous troops of the Black Legion. They Carry big guns, and are much more skilled than regular troops (D8 Skills, Stronger guns)

The Metal Militia are a smaller warband within the dominion, in addition to Chernobog, they follow a strange worship of all things Mechanical, they are often implanted with cybernetics, and functionally, they could be considered Engineers of the Dominion.

Purge Corruptors
Image20200909_205945 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Purge is a smaller warband within the dominion, their Deity of choice is unknown, but it involves the development of brutal chemical and biological weapons, Most members of the purge are deathly sick with extremely dangerous and contagious disease, but some dark power keeps them going and able to sustain unreal amounts of punishment. Some of their fighters could be mistaken for walking corpses.

Berzerkers
Image20200909_205646 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Berzerkers are a sect of warriors so obsessed with battle and killing, they have completely lost their minds. They charge into battle completely carefree, driven only by their addiction to bloodletting, they are effectively a form of vanguard within the Dominion's forces, that is if they don't start fighting each other, or the Black Legion troops behind them.

Union State of Vaenia

Image
The USV is a large Capitalist country located on the Northwestern continent of Vaenia which it shares only with its peaceful neighbor, Grindzlow. The USV is largely uninterested in the affairs of Mir. They control one of only 3 extradimensional portals on Mir, and are primarily concerned with trade and exploration with offworld entities. As such, they do control a considerable amount of trading and commercial power within Mir, acting as a largely neutral Trade zone as opposed to the other two Mainland powers with such portals, The Slavonik Imperiya and Ordo Omega.

Kingdom of Grindzlow
Image

Grindzlow is a large, but somewhat backwards Constitutional Monarchy from the continent of Vaenia on Mir, They largely keep to themselves. But have been known to engage and interact with a few factions on Slavonica, sometimes sending small expeditions of peacekeepers or guards alongside any visits their Royal Family may make.

Grindzlovian Troops
ImageGrindzlovian Troopers by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Grindzlovian Army is relatively unremarkable other than the fact that they are often confused for troops of 3 or 4 other factions on any given day..

Kriegir
Image
The Krigir Clans are a nomadic, sometimes raiding - sometimes trading group from the Northern regions of Slavonica, as likely to kill you as they are to sit down and drink with you. As such they are considered a bandit group, although much more diplomatic than the common Scavvers or Fiends of Ruin.

Clan Raiders
ImageKriegir Raiders by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Krigir Soldiers fight with both guns, and melee weapons. Whatever they feel like really.

Federation of Kraiena
Image

The Federation of Kraiena, usually just called "The Federation" is a large state of multiple peoples joined together on the Kraienan Continent in the north of Mir. Known across the realm as a bastion of culture and arts. However rarely seen outside of their home region, locked in conflict with their neighbors, Red Kraiena and Verklund, they spend very little time or effort interacting with any of the groups on the mainland, except occasional peacekeeping or trade missions.
