The Emerian Empire and United Colonies

An intro to the Emerians. (Please read the intro if you want to better understand my faction)
Spoiler: show
To start off, the Emerians are a deeply traditional people. They resemble Europe during the 14th century, and fiercely believe in honor and Chivalry, but in an fashion that strongly resemble how Vikings or Samurai viewed these principles: glory and honor through bloodshed and battle. Furthering this, these people look on battle as the British did during World War II: Thousands of men armed with rifles, zerg rushing into an enemy fortress, overwhelming it with their enormous numbers. past engagements with Peaches, whom they despise even more than the Assyrian Empire ever could, have taught them to preserve their numbers, adapting to modern warfare, while keeping to their tradition, changing it where it needed to change. However, the Emerians never had to fight tanks before the Veil broke, they strongly believe the thought of hiding in a giant chunk of metal is a very, very, cowardly action, despite realizing the advantages. They have only recently begun to realize and adapt to the Universe around them.

Now, because of their traditions, the Emerians still believe in thousands, millions, and now billions of troops being deployed onto the field at any one given time, making the Emerians very valuable to factions relying on nearly endless amounts of Cannon fodder. The Emerians swap their numbers for technology. Despite their traditions, the Emerians desire to be on an equal footing with other factions in the universe. They just two things: To destroy all peaches in the universe, and a faction to show them the way, and lead them to glory. They believe that this faction is the Assyrian Star Empire, whom they annoy by following their actions like a lost dog, following their defeat on a planet called Atlantia.


Okay. Time for my army.

Infantry
Standards (Hoplites)
Spoiler: show
Image
These are Pre 2013 Hoplites. They have not been lucky enough to receive they new equipment issued to the army in G.R. 2013.
Image
These are the Hoplites mentioned above. After engagements with the AN, they have been tougher armor and a new attachment to their weapon: an electric axe bayonet designed specifically designed for killing androids and the sort. They can used all around, to kill things other than robots.
Image
The troops all together. The guy in black is their commander.
Image
This is Major Romano. He is the Emperor's bodyguard and top general, as well one of my sigfigs. I plan at least three of them.


Vehicles
Spoiler: show
Image
This is my ATV. While playing Halo:Reach, I was inspired to build this small, lightweight vehicle. Despite my intents though, as soon as I started playing Planetside 2, I was startled to realize that was actually the Flash from PS 2. Huh.
Image
Awww! Look at the smile! A fast vehicle and a big gun should satisfy any need he should have. (I didn't get the duo of rocket troops in a pic)

:tiger:

They look good. They definitely don't look sharpied. One tip of advice I would give you would be to use the horizontal shot rather than the vertical one. This prevents half the image from being a desk or a wall or a bed and allows you to get closer to the group as a whole. Other than that, keep it up!

An extra for you guys

Postby Vami IV » Thu Aug 01, 2013 3:22 am

EXTRA
Beware:
In this spoiler lies Emeria's most deadly, terrifying, destructive weapon yet. It is capable of knocking over even the biggest hunk of ABS plastic, biting OTCs, and totaling any battlefield in just one turn.
Spoiler: show
BEHOLD!
Project: Luna. Otherwise known as the result of a team of scientists fucking around with cult DNA, enlarging it dramatically and transmogrifying plastic to flesh, fur, and fangs! Yes... sharp little kitten fangs to render even the most hardened mini fig catatonic...
Image
However, we have no means of containment or control. As demonstrated in the photo below, as she rips apart the lineup I was working on like Bonn-o-Tron.
Image


Anyway, the new kitten, third feline in our home, was playing with the set up I had, and when I removed the legos from the impromptu stand I was using, she flopped all over it. Thought you guys might like it.
She was chewing on the wire leading to the mouse I was using while I was typing this.

hm, never thought of doing that. I've got a totem of peach heads that aren't being used.

Never thought of marking them up because I tried it years ago and it jus wouldn't stay on like Bonn-o-Tron.
Hell I just spraypainted a bunch of amalgamation minifigs yesterday and made their bodies and legs all black. but heads requires a little more finesse.

Okay, update time. Still working on my mech.

Weapons
Spoiler: show
First is my rifle, the RSBR-12
Image
A cheap but effective weapon, it fires a powerful three round burst, making it a deadly accurate weapon. Thus, it is Emeria's most common weapon fielded.
Image
Here is the SLMG-41. It is currently Emeria's only LMG, and is most likely their cheapest weapon, as it fires metal ball bearings ranging from iron to lead, making the weapon that gives them the biggest bang for their flora (Emerian Currency).
Image
This is the Type MRL-22 weapon platform. It is a WIP weapon that was quickly commission by Vixen Inc. and the Emperor himself after enormous losses to other nations such as the AN and peaches, hiding in their rock solid ABS tanks, Armored cars, and APCs. It fires an OT rocket, and experiments are being held by Vixen, to enable the weapon to fire an OT laser.

NEW UPDATE IS HERE

I apologize in advance for the blurry photo quality.

New Units

Image
From Left to Right: Post 2013 Ranger (Subject to Edit), Mechanic (Technician, Engineer, etc.), and some Grease Monkeys

The VAMI AI. From Left to Right, the Respentaz Major Romano (Military),Briggs (Economy), Roselyne (Science), and Nicolis (Foreign). They provide advice directly to the emperor, and act on his behalf
Image
Wargvalry, both Imperial and Law Enforcement, they are trained only in New Helsinki, overrun by Emerian forces 20 years ago. Blue designates Imperial, red designates Law Enforcement. Imperial is used on the battle field.
Image
The Cyclopes Power Armor is an intimidating suit of armor developed during the Atlantian War with the Assyrians. It was first used at the Battle of Sekigara and the Siege of Tunsia. It has been employed since, and earned it's name from Peaches, Emerians, Rebels, and Assyrians alike.


Edit Units

Medic to the Left, edited Colonel to the right. Colonel's arms were switched to blue, for further pattern. The Medic is a unit I have been working on for a while.


New Stuff

The two to the sides you know, but what about that Machine Gun, Hmm?
Image
The gun and operator (mechanic) by themselves.
Image
And here's a handy-dandy breakdown.

The new Mecha, an edited Raptor design, complete with a OT spinning death blade (WILL EDIT) and machine gun
Here's some side shots:
Image
Image
That arm...Me no Gusta. It will be edited in time, though.


Old Stuff
Spoiler: show
Image
Same old Flash/Mongoose thing. Name ideas, anyone.


I'll making stats soon, so if I could get help with that, I would be happy.
