Good Stuff as always, and I like the workshop background, personally. If it's for a formal sort of thing, then I think lightbox and white background would be better, but for simple armory threads (where it doesn't get it's own thread) the workshop works better imo

What was that middle part again?

Woah I can actually make some of these guys for a coherent cameo army

Ever thought of joining the Magikalennik War? I know I started it a while back but then went afk for about a year, and I'm trying to get it started back up again. You can easily still do your space repair garage (I really like that, btw), since everything for this is in another galaxy. Also, it would be nice to have another pretty active person to make soaps and stuff for the opposing side of the war. :studgod: you can see the stuff for the 'DRKNS Alliance' in my sig but Omega Prime's declaration of war and other stuff might be a good reference point to go off of if you want to do it. :mrgreen:

I honestly love your army tho

Interesting... the C500 is technically in talks with the RC which includes Space Austria. I think that puts on your side of the war? :mystery: to me You may consider the Grand Galactic Empire a superior foe.

I would always appreciate more factions on my side, however, I merely suggested you join the other side due to current lack of active opponents (Omega Prime hasn't done much recently, and Praetoria has always been my cameos as a sort of 'yeah you can use my guys to fight against' from him). As long as there are enough soaps that involve DRKNS losses, joining my alliance is :excellent:

So apparently the Council of 500 has a real-world historical analogue from ancient Athens. Definitely going to borrow some ideas from this.

Current Overwatch (2/26/2018):

Image

69 soldiers
1 Wampa
2 1" Drones
156" 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 magic, and heavy ground assaults supported by an agile navy.

Shown here is the president's yacht, Counciliar One (the black space submarine), and a standard expeditionary battlegroup. The ground forces typically include a large number of infantry regulars, ninja bikers, a variety of specialists, and commando teams, supported by a variety of support vehicles and mobile artillery. Air support is provided by a Sky Shark corvette, a combat freighter, a light frigate, and a M ako Interceptor (WIP).

Army Wishlist:
- Duplicates of the Light Frigateand M ako Interceptor
- A dedicated troop transport or dropship
- More ground infantryand more troop customization
- Some more light trucks
- More ground artillery and emplacements
- A mech or hardsuit

Current Overwatch (4/23/2020):

~150 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
