It is! Kind of.

I’m in the process of expanding the battlefield to a monstrous 192x128 studs so, though technically still open, it’s all on hold.

Peach stormtroopers are going to be a challenge because all trooper figs belong to the Skion and there are no peaches in Skion. I can do peaches with another theme, however.

Big update. It's very close to being finished. I need to add the wall on the backside and then it's all about barbed wire and sandbags.

After that just shoring up the numbers of fighters and we can get it rolling.

I have returned for an update.

It's messy. There have been some significant frustrations with the scale of this project and, more recently, the length of Lego chains.

I've learned the size is too much. I'm over building it and want to move on.

I'm going to finish it as cheaply as possible, with many missing features, but it'll make me happier. I'm also moving this month which means the entire thing may be destroyed by accident.

I'm still planning on running this battle, though the format may change. I would like to get some input. Would you rather:

Command a single trooper in defense of the trenches until all is lost? [potential for some RPG elements as well]
or
Command a single sergeant and give orders to a squad in defense of the trenches until all is lost?

Thanks for following along with this madness. I still want to deliver something awesome even if it's taken almost two years.

Sergeant would be fun.
The most dangerous enemy you can fight is a man with nothing left to lose

Can I be a secret faction. It would be nice if they could be techy in some way, other than that I am fine with anything.
