Minaglacia's pronunciation = Mine-ah-glay-she-ah
Progress for power!
Minaglacia was started in BR 2019 with the objective of getting money. Led by Captain Roach, the forces of Minaglacia were not yet fighting on the front lines, but were instead in caves, searching for precious gems and crystals that could power ships, and even whole fleets. This was effective for a while, before the natural instinct of the minifig came in: To fight. This had prompted Roach to find ways of getting into fights, and as if it was their destiny, Legotavia had reappeared from the storms of the lost sector, with lots of loot to be had.
After the reappearance of Legotavia, Minaglacia took it upon themselves to steal the treasures that Legotovia held within their capital. This failed by a long shot, with them barely getting close to it. Along with the failure of getting to Legotovia, Minaglacia had lost their leader Captain Roach, who was soon replaced by the emergency robot, Giles.
This dawned a new era for Minaglacia, and with this new era came a new foe; Blacktron. Fights had begun between this enemy for a long time, eventually leading to an end at the walls of the Legotovian city walls. Now with all of their forces mainly eliminated, Minaglacia needed to change their tactics, and arm up with some better equipment. This was a new age of higher tech.
Giles now leads the main forces of Minaglacia accompanied by three other individuals: Admiral 49143, Kevin, and Professor Gladawitch Herson.
3 ‘Wren’ Class Speeder Bikes
2 ‘Magpie’ Class Interceptors
1 ‘Starling’ Class Fighter
1 ‘Pigeon’ Class Gunship
1 ‘Turkey’ Class Tank
• Recon ship
• Artillery and more ground units
• Boarding team (In progress)

Regulars are the bulk force of Minaglacia, taking jobs from the mud soaked ground of a battlefield, to the pristine hallways of SHIPs and Space Stations. These troops get the most basic of training among Minaglacia, but that doesn't mean it's not hard. Most troops were originally miners, so harsh environments are the norm to them, but the newer recruits aren't used to this, so they are sometimes shipped off to high end planets being the wimps they are.
The weaponry each troop uses is an adaptable rifle, with a larger mag, scope, and barrel. Regulars don't usually get the chance to customize these, but if they show great potential, the weapon can be given additional attachments or some attachments taken away, depending on the preference.
Scouts aren't usually seen on the battlefield, and instead behind enemy lines, planning the next attack for incoming waves of regulars. Most are given a cloak and a wider choice of clothes. Usually they are lightly armored so escapes from enemy patrols is easier, and mostly equipped with shotguns, as the close range they are usually in, with overwhelming amount of enemies, requires an easy way to get rid of them quickly.
Although Minaglacia is trying to become more civilized with other factions, some troops always want there way. One of these troops is grenades, which are well known for wiping out both the enemy's forces and their own in the battle of Hemoriad. They are equipped with the adaptable rifle that regulars use, but modified to have a grenade magazine and a suitable barrel to fire out the grenades.
The snipers are a common troop among battles, being able to take out troops from a distance. Usually snipers are originally wimpy regulars who don't want to get shot, and instead stay as far back on the battlefield as possible.
They are equipped with a different type of rifle to the regulars, which can provide more power than a regulars rifle.
Flame troopers aren't the most common thing to see one the battlefield, but when you do see one, they're not friendly. Flame troopers are used to take out large groups of enemy troops at a time. Although most troops find it annoying when someone doesn't die, a flame trooper thinks otherwise, as it allows them to keep on burning things, which of course, is one of their more preferred activities.
The weapon is completely different from the regular weapon, as how are you going to shoot flames out of something for bullets? (This does not need to be answered. Please don't try this)
As Minaglacia is fond of robots, instead of the usual medik on the battlefield, a cybernetik would be there to upgrade the troops while the battle is going on. Even though this has not improved the troops in battle so far, as usually their heads are just stuck on the top of some hotdog cart, Giles insists that this will soon work.
The cybernetiks are usually equipped with a chainsaw, as it both doubles up as a great weapon, and something that you can use to cut off the useless parts of a patient, like the legs, arms, and other appendages that come in various sizes.
While the cybernetik is cutting off limbs of people, the Tea is usually telling them which parts to actually cut off, and sorting out the court cases that they get once the family of a now hotdog-carted soldier find out what's happened to their husband. The tea is usually looked over, and instead of them, all of the credit for a job is given to the cooler looking person.
Do not be deceived by their smiles, as the pilots are some of the most deadly of people in Minaglacia. They are known for crashing into larger ships (either from frustration or because they were trying to pull off some fancy stunt, but failed miserably), using the ejector seat then crashing their ship, or giving incorrect commands to other ships, so they crash their ship. Evidently, these guys love crashing their ship.
To be honest, there's nothing that's really special about gunners. They are usually picked from a random group of regulars, and thrown onto a ship. The job that gunners do is almost the same as what a normal troop would do; Shoot enemies. This makes Gunners one of the more easy to train troops, as any extra training is just making sure they don't throw up while in a ship.
The Gunners are also equipped with high end armour, so they can look different.
On the far right, there is a Gunship pilot. These are almost identical to a Gunner, but instead fly a big ship with guns.
Speeder bike pilots are some of the most chiseled and manly people in Minaglacia. This makes them perfect to drive around on fast bikes on the battlefield, and overall just looking awesome. They are some of the few troops that get to have more freedom in what they wear, and this usually ends with them wearing nothing.
Even though they're handsome, this does not mean they're smart, so this lot usually accidentally ram into their own team, and give such excuses as "he was in the way" or "I didn't think they were still alive"
These small bikes are some of the faster ships in Minaglacia, usually used on the ground to either scout ahead of their squadron, or distract the enemy. The main body is also used to contain the small plasma blasters inside, which allow the troops to pluck out smaller enemy craft, such as other speeders, or lightly armored tanks.
The open design of the speeder is one of its flaws, as it usually leaves the driver open to infantry fire. This usually isn't worried about, because once the enemy kills the driver, the speeder then becomes a small flying out of control torpedo, dealing significant damage to enemy lines.
The 'Turkey' Class Tank, otherwise known as the pew pew floating board by the troops, is one of the few tanks used in Minaglacia. Equipped with a heavy plasma cannon, the tank can take out larger enemy ships that the infantry cannot, making it used in battles where the enemy is usually using something that's bigger than a minifig. The tank's way of moving is by hovering, which usually makes its use more versatile, as unlike it's inferior track using brethren, this tank can be used in space, floating upon enemy SHIPs.
The 'Magpie' was given its name for it commonly stealing other peoples kills, as it isn't actually strong enough to do anything on its own. The small interceptor is used quite commonly as its cheap and lightly armored. This allows swarms of these to appear in battles for low costs, and swarm enemy lines, or gunships.
Another common technique the pilots use is called the 'crash' which consists of the pilot hitting a wrong button somewhere, and losing control for a temporary moment, causing it to crash to the ground. In other factions, this is considered a last resort, but in Minaglacia, this is usually one of the first ideas that comes to the pilots mind (or at least that's what they say. Other's think it's just the pilots poor ability to fly a ship).
The 'Starling' is one of the stand out ships in a battle. Equipped with 4 small missiles, 2 main guns, and 2 back guns, it is ready for battle, and to take on anything. It is usually one of the more expensive ships as it requires 2 pilots, but it is worth it in battle.
Pilots are usually trained not to crash this ship, as it is a valuable piece on the board, being able to take out anything from infantry to gunships, and even whole SHIPs if it has enough luck. Because of this, it usually isn't worth having any more than 3 at a time, as they can do a job fine in smaller groups, and even by themselves.
The back of the ship is also equipped with a gunner, allowing it to be able to take out ships on it's tail, or small infantry as it flies overhead.
The 'Pigeon' Class Gunship is a heavily armored box with enough space to store a squad or two of infantry. When this beast is seen on the battlefield, if the opponent doesn't have any big guns, they're screwed. It's only had one recording of actually being taken down, but that is said to be an anomaly that has no explanation to how it happened.
The main hangar of the ship also offers a vantage point for gunners, with spaces to put a wide variety of weapons to pick off at troops underneath it. If needed, the weapons can be taken out to grant more space for troops, but why would you do that when instead you can have more guns?
The ship is also equipped with 6 missiles on each side to annoy the opponent as they didn't know they existed. This allows for squadrons of enemies below it to be surprised that it existed, and then dead after being blasted to bits.
If everything is going wrong on the ground of the battle, the gunship can deploy its small robot that hides in the ridge
There is more to come of Minaglacia, including such things as a squadron of commando boarding troops, but this is it for now, so I hope you like what you see
Minaglacia is a faction of miners. Their goals are to get as much money as they can. Their army is made up of Gunships and drop ships, so they prefer big slow chunky vehicles. They're infantry aren't the best trained, but they know how to pull a trigger.
Giles, a pacifistic robot, governs over them in times of no other leaders. He, like any other leader, loves the joy of money, making him a suitable candidate for the leader of Minaglacia.
Ted and Colin are the specialists of Minaglacia, Ted focusing on stealth and Colin focusing on explosions.
The usual infantry are never uniform, usually going into war in their miners clothes and rusty old guns.
Chuck and Gibble are an unusual pair, preferring to cause mayhem then actually winning a fight.
Minaglacia usually use a tank that looks like this. They don't care if it has a technical name, it's just a tank.
The dropship is used as quick transport into battle, then after that, a portable bomb. It's used most frequently as it is one of the tougher ships of Minaglacia.
Lastly, the gunship. This badboy is one of the rarer ships that Minaglacia use, barely found in battles of low significance unlike the dropship. The ship has many modular guns depending on the situation, but most of the time, it's used as transport to places where it is unlikely for it to get bruised.
More shall come soon! Hope you've enjoyed it
