This is my custom army. As you can see, it is WIP at the moment. However, I had enough that I figured it was worth posting them. So far, my army contains:

2 Motorcycle troopers
1 Bismarck Armored Jeep
1 Archibald Battle Tank
2 EON-72 Fighters

As you can see, the regular soldier's heads are yellow smilies. After school gets out next week I'll be putting in a Bricklink order for about a platoon worth of these guys along with a small squad and pieces for a bomber and a second Armored Jeep. Once that arrives I'll update this with new pictures.

And yes, I do plan on having a forum battle with these guys.

Awww, I thought you were having a space forum battle...
Oh well, this will still be fun.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

I will, this one is going to happen probably late summer, while my space battle will hopefully happen sometime soon.

In the meantime though, well, lets just say I have something special planned . . .

More like a post-apoc group actually, with the idea being that after the Apocalypse a group found the remains of some WWII craft and modeled their new army after it.

nice stripes, by the way. The tank especially has a very unique design.

And yes, I double checked before calling it a "tank" for all you tank snobs out there.

Thanks, I had a lot of fun making it, especially the treads and the interior. As for the stripes they originally started as something to make the tank look a little less bland, but then I decided to use it as their "banner" and put it on the jeep and the planes.

Let's see how this army expands.
