I havent been around to post anything latley, I was visiting my mother yesterday who just had an operation, but I used my trip to the city as an opportunity to check out a dedicated toy store, got my 4 year old sister her own girls lego set, and I paced around the lego/megablox isles for about 15 minutes, Looking at the Star Wars and CITY sets, taking a particular interest in the Clone Turbo Tank, AT-AT, and Public Transport sets.
I ended up getting the AT-AT.. Because it's a motherf*cking AT-AT... and I always wanted one as a kid but could never find them in stores.
It dawned on me though that there are quite a few large starship sets out there that Ill probably end up buying one or two of, because right now my armies are entirley ground based when they're supposed to be space age factions.
anyway the AT-AT is put together but Im not really sure who's going to get it, Im thinking I should give it to the Caspians or Kamazians, since neither of them really have a large assault vehicle like the Volk do.
Here are the photos of the Protox Covenant, as promised. I've been getty a little uncreative and impractical with naming my factions, you would think this army is heavily alien influenced, but I'm really just going with what I can get of the top of my head
The Protox Covenant is an emergent empire that has grown between Kamazian and Caspian space, first appearing in G.R 2008 The Protox have become somewhat of a lesser, more local problem for the Kamazians, the Protox have remained on relativley good terms with their other neighbors, the caspians, going so far as to allowing Brik and ABS Mining on some of their fringe worlds. A small war broke out between the Protoxans and Kamazians around G.R 2009 when Protox marines accidentally landed on a Kamazian world, the Kamazians took it as a threat and a skirmish ensued, the war ended in a stalemate and the Caspian Federation stepped in to monitor the ceasefire. the Protoxans take pride in their independence, but value the Caspians as honorable allies.
Each of the "Minor or Lesser" Factions sees itself At war with one major faction, an ally or friend of another, and neutral with the last.Protox Covenant
is an ally of the Caspians
, and at War with the Kamazians
, Neutral with the VolkansLingshan Shogunate
is an Ally of the Volkans
, at war with the Caspians
and neutral with the KamaziansThe Larrian Systems Alliance

, and Neutral with the Caspians
All three Major powers are hostile to each other. Thus completing the Trifecta
Protox Covenant ground army
Currently the only vehicle I have in a blue color scheme with the exception of the "Blue Angel" AKA Thrasher starfighter, but that was given to the Caspians since Yellow was originally the identifying color of Caspians, since bad didnt always work, *Like I can't make bad text*
Zealot Attack Vehicle
The Zealot is the Covenant's only mass produced vehicle in it's military, the bulk of it's vehicles have been captured enemy vehicles that were repainted. it is armed with a roof mounted twin machine gun
Sorry that this update was moslty a TL;DR Text spam, Next up is the Lingshan Shogunate,
The Lingshan have quite a few vehicles but most of them are just stock star wars sets, dispite the name there are no samurai, sorry. It is a civiliation that chose to field a drone military instead of wasting it's own minifigs lives. This is the "Battle Droid" army. If I can get the time I'll have them up tommorow. I work tonight so.
