The droppod is great because it only looks easy to put together after it's been put together.

The drop pod is the best thing methinks.

Changed the layout, added the Defender Sentry Turret, and added some stat cards (made with my GIMP Template).

Oh man... I've been thinking about building a drop pod for awhile. This is just freakishly awesome. And I'm loving the sentry turret. The fighter is cool, but I'm not fond of the shuttle much... maybe if the wings were attached nearer the top and angled down?
I fully intend to steal your ideas. Just... awesome.

From Nyphilis's point of view, drop pods are stupid for normal operations. They're hard to build, expensive, and must be built in mass numbers to be effective. We however think that for really 31337 operations, such as say, dropping pedonuker onto an immortal stronghold to wreak havoc, drop pods have a use. We fully plan on stealing your drop-pod idea, it's simple, beautiful, and effective.

Too much guns? Drop pod.
Rough terrain? Drop pod.
Need to get there quick but keep fighting in space? DROP POD!

They're more useful than one might think.

Not to mention this is Brikwars.... logistical concerns are ignored. As far as we are concerned, our armies don't eat, sleep, or need supply chains(unless those supply chains are being attacked!).

Drop pods are good for having units wherever you need em to.I have a similar thing going with some of my special forces, 2 of em have that Endor battle camo, so I rule that they can jump out of the trees and appear suddenly anywhere that has a green baseplate.

A drop pod is unstoppable and, with some jamming and distraction from the mothership, nearly undetectable, especially compared to a big :boxy: Thunderbird.

Or even a big, sleek Thunderbird Mk. II, hint, hint...

I've built just about everything I wanted to build, and taken pictures of it all. Have a look at the main post!

while i disagree with anything being able to done the hatredcopter, i do love your designs. like everyone else, i dig the drop pod. i also like the fury gunship, something about being able to fight your way in, drop your cargo or passengers and then fight your way out again, thats always awesome, and you made it look good. i am also liking the hardsuit/mantank you have going on like Bonn-o-Tron. that could definitely cause some trouble for anyone in your way. keep it up man, one day i am sure we will meet on the field of battle, maybe as allies, maybe as foes. only time will tell.

I just tried out the red arms -- they contrasted very nicely, and made the officers and NCOs stand out. Red legs look okay, but the SF's primary color is blue, and I feel that everything SF should have some blue on it; since swapping legs is a pain, I'm leaving them blue (as is).

Also, something I didn't mention; all of the SF faces are unique and visible! I made very sure that I never repeated a face, and avoided opaque visors (repeated and hidden faces are for cannon fodder; that will come with a different faction).

I'm glad you all like the bunker and vehicles!

Great stuff! The drop pod, the Tunderbird Mk II, and the bunker are my favorites.
