[BB19] StarCorps - The Reconquering of Ikan Outpost

This is my entry for the 2,019 Blarney Build, category brik by brik

For maximum ossum, listen to this while scrolling through.

Field Report A1126.3
In response to the ongoing threats, StarCorps started a major offensive in the nearby planetary systems. Main objective is gaining ground and hence securing supplies for the StarCorp LLC Homeworlds.
One of the first military missions leads the StarCorps Troopers back to an outpost abandoned long ago on the Planet Ikan.
Back then regarded useless, the outpost could now become a strategic position for the upcoming war...
Image

The Troopers are brought to surface by the versatile Heron Dropships , and immediately start to fan out to the nearby lowlands
Image

this StarCorps Titan Walker shoots some of its missiles towards a nearby Red Faction LARV
Image

The Red Faction forces are taken by surprise of the overwhelming offensive, going full retreat. at least the ones who are fast enough to escape...
Image

Image

Image

Image

After making short work of their enemies, the victorious squads of the first batallion secure the surroundings for the next Heron Dropship, which brings in the second batallion and more supplies.
Image

Image

Image


...And here`s a view of the whole scene with smoother lighting:
Image

That`s all for now... oh wait- the boast! Well, this is by far the most protruding diorama I`ve built so far, although I put not even half of my GalaxyPatrol figures into it. After all, I wanna be able to raise the bar in the future...

Hope you like it, feedback always appreciated, and have a nice weekend! For prosperity!

I always like the multiples of the same vehicles in one army. I like the design of the ships it reminds me the drop ships from starship troopers

Most likely the resemblance is intentional :) great work

So my question will be :arrow: Is the intentions of the StarCorps in favor or against the Greater Good???

Multiple vehicles? Same here! If I like a unit`s design, I try to build as many of them as my brik pool can yield.
The StarCorps Units have numerous sources of inspiration. But Starship Troopers is one of the major influences -obviously :D
Especially the Dropship design, because ossum!

Is StarCorps` intentions in favor or against the Greater Good? :mystery:
But the High Leaders of StarCorps and the CEO of StarCorp. LLC are looking forward to welcome a delegation of the M-Throne Empire
in order to discuss the future course of diplomacy and economics!

Thanks, I wanted that dark blue scheme ever since the GalaxyPatrol fig was released. Hard and expensive back then, I worked mostly with regular blue and only dark blue details, but within the last months it has become a lot easier to build larger scale models without facing financial ruin. Just look at all the Rex Dangervest Sets from TLM2 that were released! So I can hopefully hold on that color scheme for a looong time. For Prosperity!

Oh my, those dropships! So clever, so functional. Colorscheming consistent across troops and vehicles. Also cleverly bruickbuilt special effects in the scene, noticed the "smoke" from the descending dropship. Love it all!

great color scheme.

dark blue is so underutilized.

Style-9.5
There's so much going on here and it's all totally ossum. There are few things as brikwarsy as introducing a brand new faction by showing them kicking ass and looking cool.

Substance-9
One of the coolest things about this scene are the multiples of the vehicles. It makes the faction look numerous and efficient.

Photography-8
The lighting in a lot of these pictures is a bit off, but the way you lit up the inside of the dropship troop bay is super neat.

Boast-8
Not a lot of people introduce new factions by building whole ass-kicking bignettes. Hopefully this is the start of a trend.

Cool faction, the galaxy warrior is one of my favorite figs. Do you have more pictures of the mecha?

There's nothing like crushing the enemy with total overkill and superior numbers! :) That dropship (?) especially looks badass!

Style: 10 - I was just going to give a 9 and then I turned on the music.
Substance: 10 - There's a lot of stuff here
Photography: 10 - Like the dramatic lighting and closeup shots
Boast: 9 - if what you say is true that this is only half the troops...
I make apocalypses and apocalypse accessories.

10 all around, but I will give the boasts an 11 because of the kick-ass practical effects!
