Danish Mandalorian special forces

Postby Maverick » Wed Dec 11, 2013 10:06 am

These are my Danish Mandalorian special forces. I used a lot of Brickarms, some Brickforge and some Brickwarriors custom parts.
I've never tried posting an army before so i really hope this works.
Image
The entire squad without special Guys.
Image
My hero/officer. I haven't come up with a name for him yet. He uses an electrical guitar and a MP40
Image
Showing of MP40. Germans make fine weapons.
Image
Shotgun guy. He hasn't got a jetpack like the others, but he has heavyer armor.
Image
Here's the entire squad plus hero and gunner.
Image
One unit (I've got two).
Image
Heavy gunner. He uses a M60.
That's all, folks.

The hero is a bit...generic. He can't really differentiate himself from the rest of the units. The pauldrons, skirt and guitar somewhat work, but it needs more. Now he just seems like a mere special unit. The heavy gunner somehow manages to look more like a hero because he looks different, he lacks the helmet, he dares to show his face.
Remember that the in most works of fiction (blatantly assuming), mooks are often faceless, or have generic faces. They are not important or interesting, you are not supposed to remember them as they only serve to decorate the surroundings. The hero has a face, and shows it. The hero is important.

That guitar is a mighty fine weapon by the way.

Thank you for your feedback. The hero wasn't actually my original hero, but i need to order some more stuff before i could finish him. That guy is just an officer. I was going to give the gunner a bare torso and a bandoiler, but my supplier ran out. :? And i liked the guitar as well. I was thinking about some special rules for it, like pushing all the enemys away with some Metal or something. Anyways i am going to try out some stuff for my hero and hopefully will get Pictures out soon.

I agree that the hero could use a little tweaking, but other than you troops look OK. Though you might want to swap the heads around for some that aren't quite so horrifying, if you're planning on having them run around without helmets.

I like the idea of armor to differentiate mandos; which is not an easy thing to do if you wanna keep them more or less in their original state (though you might wanna try and get some of those sick new deco ones that came in the mandalorian speeder for officers/spec ops).
Best way to make your hero more heroic is to slap a cape on its back. Capes are always cool.

I would switch helmets personally... for a start. I must say though, good call on BrickWarriors. Their shit is incredible. I'm a big fan. I have a bunch of their stuff.

Cape+Jetpack=Flaming disaster, but maybe i could use that as a weapon. I agree though, capes are cool.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I like it too. The only problem is that my swedish retailer doesn't carry that much. And what do you mean switch helmets?

Just wondering, where are you getting your mandos from, as I am in dire need of some.

That's unfortunate. I suppose Bricklink and ebay are my only options.
