Kast's Faction Index - 2020

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. All descriptions and details will be found only on the wiki articles.

Pictures themselves will simply have short descriptions telling what is in each picture.
If you want to see what's what, and don't want to look at the wiki page. Click on the link to go to flickr, I have marked out what each unit or group of units is.

Main
The largest, most developed, and most featured armies, Having well around 100 Minifigs, or otherwise backed up by significant amounts of vehicles and war machines. These armies form the base of the world of which everything else is designed around
Slavonik Imperiya
Stroiteliga Bratva
Black Legion


Major
Medium sized, lesser developed but still somewhat significant Armies. Usually hovering around the 40 Minifig mark
Armata Alliance
The First Echelon
Ordo Omega
Cordova Coalition
The Syndicate


Minor
Smaller Factions that are less developed and just don't make the cut, usually revolving around a specific style or theme, and under 40 Minifigs and The smallest organized factions, Usually consisting of a small unique design comprising no more than 15 minifigs.
Svoboda Clan
Bandits
Remnants of the First Alliance
Kriegir Clans
Phalanx Iota
Black Dragon Clan
Reaver Pirates
Sindrian Diktat
Musashi Clan


Cameo
Cameos of Other member's original factions. Of varying size

Anything else that doesn't fit into the other five categories

Misc Gangsters & Mercs

Svoboda Clan

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

Svoboda, translation meaning "Freedom" is a smaller Clan that rose up in response to the Vorhut Order, an organization of Anarchists and Shit Disturbers who like nothing more than to disrupt the serious business hard-asses of Powers like Vorhut and Imperiya, Their small size limits them primarily to guerilla tactics, But they prove a constant thorn in the side of factions much larger than them. Svoboda troops generally do not follow any standard uniform or equipment theme, Everyone simply gathering more equipment as they continue to be successful.

Raider Converts
ImageConverts by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
In mid R2020, The Legion focused much of it's efforts against the Stroiteliga Bratva. As the League began to fall, more and more were convinced to turncoat or die. They fulfil the same role and status as Raiders, albeit with Pilfered Stroiteliga Militia equipment.

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)

Champions
ImageBlack Champions by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Champions are the equivalent of Officers. Leading Marauders and Raiders into battle, and constantly competing against others to score the most kills on the battlefield

Black Hand

Small scout robots that are used for tracking, patrolling, and sometimes even kamikaze suicide bombing.

Roadcutters
ImageRoadcutters by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Roadcutters are not an individual model, but general classification of fast and violent attack vehicles. All hail the V8

Basilisk Tank
ImageBasilisk Tank by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

Warwagon Heavy APC
Image20200716_190937 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Warwagon is an Armored battering ram that happens to carry a troop compartment. It's pilots are as likely to go crashing headlong into enemy fire as they are to safely transport troops. But when the vehicle is the size of a Heavy Tank and covered in jagged metal. Why not?

The Syndikat

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

The Syndikat (or Syndicate) is a secretive alliance of corporations that's militarized assets stalk the battleplates in an endless war to sabotage rivals, and steal their treasures or secrets. The group's leader is not known, as it's led by a "Shadow Council", Syndikat's forces are all about stealth. Striking from the shadows and even going as far as using cloaking tek. They are almost as despised as the Black Legion due to their tendancy to attack pretty much everyone.

Syndikate Operatives are elite troopers with weapons and armored copied and improved on from other rival factions, and their vehicles all employ some kind of stealth technology, whether hiding themselves from radars and detectors, to outright cloaking to the naked eye.

The First Alliance

Image20190127_041716 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Remnants of the First Alliance, a loose military organization that acted as a police force for much of the central regions of the realm before recent events. They were eventually beaten by the Black Legion, and the vast majority of the group disbanded. Moving into other regions and founding new groups.

Their position as Peacekeepers was temporarily replaced by a group of Elders called the Anwar Council.. who also created a central police force called OSKOM. Their Creation outlived their creators as the Black Legion destroyed most of the Council too.

Today, the First Alliance still has a few holdouts across the realm, they reject the authority of other successor Factions like the Imperiya and Stroiteliga, but they are a shadow of their former selves, relegated to a minor power

This image isn't actually a full showcase, I didnt put all of the minifigs out at the time and didnt care to re-take the picture since it was just more of the same
The Musashi Clan is a minor faction associated with the Monolith Imperiya, hailing from the Nu plates, specifically the Musashi region. They were somehow managed to gain association status with the Imperiya and it's allies, and they provide regional security as well as special crystal mining resources.

Musashi troops utilizes a mixture of high and low tek weaponry. In addition to pulse and laser weapons, they are also known to brandish Katanas, Kanabos and other brutal close quarters weapons that they use to bum rush their foes with

Musashi Kyu-Maru Laser Tank

The Kyu-Maru (Eastern script for Type 90) is a smaller battle tank with an unordinary turret design. Featuring a laser cannon, pulse gun and optional missiles. Built on top of the same Alliance Template that the Imperiya, Bratva, Echelon and several other groups make their vehicles on. The Kyu-Maru is noticably lighter armored than the Imperiya or Sindrian Kodiaks that it fights alongside Featuring no side skirts and a tucked in crewless turret. Making it very similar to the Echelon's design.

Insurgent

The Insurgent Crew is a small Battle clan who carry an affinity for getting involved in the middle of other group's fights. They love to destroy towns and cities in the intense fighting their urban warfare style brings. They exclusively recruit Peach minifigs.
They don't have a home base, as they are constantly on the move, but they do hold influence in the Tau and Upsilon clusters, both already noted for being contested between other factions.

Insurgent Crew doesn't have any uniform or standard equipment. Smaller groups within the faction may wear distinct styles, but the majority will just throw together the most efficient gear for the job from what they can find.

Jungle Goons

Not really a concrete faction, just some generic jungle camo goons used as cannon fodder in soaps or battles

Kriegir

The Kriegir Clans are a smaller group known for high quality equipment and their distinctive yellow patterned armor. However being one of the smallest groups in the fray, their spiffy equipment is mostly an afterthought. Krieger is notorious for petty violence for the sake of it. They've developed a reputation of Sometimes trading-sometimes raiding. They aren't Quite Reavers. But they're a warlike, paganistic society that relishes combat nonetheless

Krieger Clan has developed it's own basic armor and weapons. And they are one of the only minor groups to have their own vehicles. Namely their "Blitz" APC. The design and performance was so good that Imperiya Engineers tried to talk them into selling it to them

Phalanx Clan

The Phalanx Clan is a minor faction led by Bruno, an egotistical tough guy. Phalanx often join wars alongside other factions and play a minor role in some of their flanks. Phalanx troops usually wear heavy armor and carry heavy weapons.
