The Space Dudes

Edited for rules compliance. Also, I put this in the proper forum.
Edit 5/31/12: background revision. Promises of more pictures.


I've been wanting to do a faction for a while, and here is its humble beginnings (complete with a staggering one blurry picture!)

The Space Dudes occupy a deep-space station known as The House. From here they launch strategic raids on deep-space convenience stores, pawn shops and the last remaining Blockbuster to kill the time. When fighting on their own terms they are very fooldhardy and bold, so much so that "Watch this!" could be construed to be their battle cry. As allies, the Space Dudes are notoriously flaky, often taking smoke breaks or simply wandering off mid-battle if something fascinates them.

The Space Dudes are very loosely organized into a few groups based on combat role and a given Dude's theme. The current groups are shown below:

Engineer's Union 508
This is where the creative minds gather and keep the Space Dudes' equipment and vehicles running. It is headed by Lefty (the one-armed foreman), although in battle they are lead by the mad scientist Igor Strauss (pictured below).

(Igor Strauss sports a converted deep sea life support module. All of the life-supporty stuff was stripped out and replaced with gun-supporty stuff to mount his OT Cannon and golden sword arm).

Demolitionist's Union 508b
Technically, all of the DU508b members are EU508 members, but they really like having their own business cards. People belonging to this leaderless group of louts really enjoy blowing things to Kingdom Come. And they're not bad at it, either.

Space Marine 6th Division
This is the largest group of Space Dudes. To be a space marine, one must be willing to fight in space and look fairly space-marine-ish. The silver-armored Power Miners guys, and the Alien Conquest ADU guys make up the bulk of this section, as well as some delusional motocross guy with a ninja sword who insists he is a time-traveling space ninja (nobody's had the heart to tell him otherwise). One can also find the actual space ninja Slash and his pyromaniac business partner Burn here, as well as the section's newest and shiniest leader, Battle Brother Brick Simmons.

Cyborg Arm Squad
This consists of exactly two guys: a Blacktron pirate and some flat-topped spy villain. Both sport high-tech prosthetic arms, and their guns even kind of match. They insist that the Cyborg Arm Squad is, in fact, quite straight and their partnership is entirely platonic. It is unknown whether any of the other Space Dudes believes this.

Those cyborg arms are way too fun - I love cramming all kinds of weapons in their.

I vote you give him a vibrating "massage" attachment for their nefarious purposes.

It is. Specifically, that's a screenshot from somewhere on the Brikwars forum. So I blame whoever has the animated Conan signature.

Heh hehe, hey Conan, where's ya sword?
