Well, I just got my Brickarms order and one of my bricklink orders so I fiddled around with them a little bit and eventually issued them to my army. Some of them even had the same rifles from the Nyphilin days so they obviously needed a revamp.
The infantry get the longer of the two Star Wars rifles now along with trans-blue axe blade bayonets
for all the grunts. I always thought it would be cool to give everyone rifles with trans-blue axe blades so now they have a CC weapon too.
The brickarms was for the delta-force-esque forces to make them feel more elite. All the troops with ARC rifles will get underslung OTCs once they arrive.
My mystery pack featured a bad helmet, which I thought was useless until I saw my poor, head-protectionless medic lying around waiting to get shot. After the pic he also got a bad Post-Apoc SMG for defense.
There’s been a change in leadership of the Trattorian army. The General Yadlin, realizing that his military post was distracting his efforts with women, recently resigned as Chairman of the Trattorian Joint Chiefs of Staff. Coincidentally, that was when a little known Admiral Fleur in the Office of Naval Intelligence uncovered the most elaborate and undercover plot ever conducted by the immortals to retrieve the antimmortallium involving hundreds of government and military officials and single-handedly put an end to it. Consequently, she was hailed as a hero and elected on impulse to the position of Chairman. And to also serve as a model for my new chrome space magnum!
Everybody in my army is going to get OTCs except heavy-weapons and support roles once that shipment comes in.
