Gorvoslov's Minor Factions

Post by Gorvoslov » Sun May 17, 2020 8:14 pm

I was sorting my minifigs and had them all out anyways, so figured I’d do pictures of all my side factions while I’m at it. Some of these have definite holes, missing equipment, that sort of thing, or will be absorbed/split apart with other factions. Main goal was to give myself a good idea of what I actually have. These will have some of my thoughts about what I might do with these troops or a silly one liner description. A lot of the small factions are likely to be used as either minor nobles and their retainers or mercenaries.

Might as well put all the links to my major factions with their lore here:

Castle stuff


Undead - I haven’t decided how I’m going to split these out yet, Mummies will likely be turned into some sort of dead servants of their king similar to Skyrim Draugr feeding and serving their Dragonpriests, if anyone ever bothered reading the book in game on the lore on those that is.
(Left to right columns: Zombies, Mummies, Vampire Cult, Demons, Golems, Spectral stuff, Skellies)

Scorpions - Giant is missing armour slope pieces, more banners to be added, going to add scorpion swarms. Might change heroes a bit.

Image


Greeks (left-ish) and their myths (right-ish) - Unsure if this’ll be split in two or not yet.

Image


Senātus Populusque Rōmānus - Aquila to be built, flaming pigs to be added

Image


The Wolves - Humans and werewolves and wargs working together in bloody harmony. Likely adding some dogs.

Image


Hog mercenaries - Will also probably get flaming pigs.

Image


Islanders - I kept finding bits of them after taking this photo. Expecting to add a few.

Image


Mammoth hunters - I may just give these guys mammoths.

Image


Kobolds - Yes, I was so lazy that I didn’t even bother opening the sets with half the army in them.

Image


Crowned Lions - The third son of the recently deceased king basically going “Well if both my brothers are going to raise armies to fight for the crown, I’m totally gonna try to steal the crown for myself”.

Image


Highlanders - Needs a William Wallace type hero still

Image


Totally-not-just-Rohan - Probably mercenaries.

Image


Barbarians - It amuses me to no end that all it took to make the WWE style wrestler Collectible Minifig into a convincing Barbarian was replacing the mullet with a helmet and giving him a hammer.

Image


Tribesmen - Weapon re-work likely.

Image


Egyptians (Living) - Probably going to get the mummies.

Image


Happy-go-lucky-halflings-and-dwarven-friends - Those are halflings with pebbles, nothing can stop them.

Image


Peasant Mob - Honnestly just going to be fun. They seem to have their first stake burning going on…

Image

Image

The Brownpants - A mercenary company who insist on everyone but their leader wearing brown pants to avoid “embarassment” in battle.

Image


Bear Warriors - Pikemen have bear printed platemail to be added, need to actually add their cannon fodder spearmen. And maybe some actual bears, but that might be too similar to The Wolves getting actual wolves.

Image


4 Random archers - I have no idea where they’re going.

Image


Yellow Dragons - Some now with pants.

Image


Battle Angels - Something about Flash Gordon approaching?

Image


The Haircut Aficionados - They like swords, and a specific matching haircut. Planning to add a barber hero.

Image


Yuan-Tis - There’s some more of them in unopened sets still, and need to take a dremmel to the not quite fully broken off keychain rings for some of them.

Image


Antiquated Castle Forces - Unsure what I’ll do with them, but it was cool to realise how many I had slowly acquired.

Image


Samurai - The Samurai themselves I’m pretty happy with. The robes and kanabo guys I’m not entirely sold on. The polearm wielding footment I’m really not sold on. Might add some early firearms and/or archers on foot as well. I like the heavy diversity of Samurai since that's how they were.

Image


Furbeasts - I thought I had more Ewoks than this. I keep thinking I should get more wookies and then I never do.

Image



Minotaurs - In this world, there's a large group of minotaurs living to the far north in some sort of monastery setup around the north pole. In general, when they interact with the outside world it causes extreme fear because it usually means an existential threat is present. They have some humans that get accepted into their ranks (Will be an entire squad after a Bricklink order arrives)

Pirate stuff

Redcoats - I’m expecting massive growth in their numbers (40+ additional regulars).

Image


Bluecoats - Expecting some growth in their numbers, but nowhere near the extremes of the redcoats. (Maybe 10?)

Image


Pirates - Expecting the numbers to more than double.

Image





Futuristic Nonsense


Military - Might build a comically green tank eventually. Commanding officer apparently used to be a Chemistry teacher.

Image


Space Conflicts dump - Missing a couple Scouts and Pilotes

Image


Classic Space Revival - I only have a couple of actual original classic space, everything else is a re-issues of some sort.

Image


Mad Scientists and their wretched experiments - Left to right: Medical Science Monstrosities, Botanist Humanoid Monstrosities, Animal Humanoid Monstrosities

Image





“I will probably use these for something but thinking it through is to much effort right now and I just want to be done sorting minifigs already” - Front row is more or less determined (left to right): Probably going to be a redeemed demon since I like the idea of Fallen Angel vs. Ascended Demon, Death (I’m gonna kill you now form), Fred (The god of Freedom, Time, and Crippling Alcoholism), Death (The you know what, you can negotiate for your life form)
