Kuragin Republic Update

Postby Ben-Jammin » Tue Nov 08, 2011 4:19 pm

Since I posted my new Calvarian Empire, I figured their arch-nemesis the ISRK (Inter-Stellar Republic of Kuragin) should have an update as well. So, here they are!

Image

(I have no idea how that pic got turned sideways. Oh well...)

As usual, the infantry are first:

Image

Standard infantry, the run-of-the-mill, dime-a-dozen grunts. They are pretty much equal to their Calvarian counterparts. Hopefully these pics will be better than the Calvarian ones...

Image

Medics. These guys are one of the few advantages that Kuragin forces have over Calvarian ones. They carry SMGs, but generally spend more time running around the battlefield attempting to revive fallen comrades.

Image

Snipers.

Image

Heavies. Most of the weapons used by the ISRK were inspired by those of Magnus Lauglo (or however you say it) on Flickr.

Image

Officers.

Image

Spec ops troops. They are the Kuragin equivalent of the Calvarian commandos, but they have far fewer numbers. I hope to change that soon, but so far this one squad is all I have. The gun drone on the right is often used to provide additional fire support, and is armed with a minigun.

Image

And here are a wide variety of pilots.

Image

Scout jeeps. I know, they seriously need some improvements seeing as how they're just the typical army man jeep, but whatevs...

Image

Remember when I said that other nations had copied the Tempest design? Well, here you go, Kuragin Tempests.

Image

The Bishop APC. Fast, adaptable, and armed with an autocannon and a pair of ATGMs. Inspired by the LAV-45 design I saw on the Brickarms forums.

Image

The Crusader main battle tank. Each is armed with a pair of heavy machine guns (one hull-mounted, the other coaxial) and a 100mm HVC. The access hatch is in the rear for easy access, although the two observation hatches in the front can open wider to allow for an additional escape route if necessary.

Image

The Paladin heavy tank. Inspired by the Pantera on Brickshelf. This beast is a nightmare on the battlefield. Reactive armor keeps it same from anything short of a heavy-duty missile launcher, while the 120mm gun is larger than most spam weapons. The heavy machine gun and rocket launchers can destroy other targets. It also has working suspention.

Image

The Seraphim gunship. Heavily armed, most of its space is dedicated to weapons, so it has little armor. Two rocket pods, two cruise missiles, a pair of HMGs and a .50 cal minigun make it capable of easily defeating most targets.

Image

And finally, the Archangel dropship. Heavily armored, it can transport two infantry squads and their weapons straight into a combat zone. It's only standard armament is a 25mm chaingun mounted below the nose.

Image

The (rather bare) interior.

Nice army, if a bit... traditional? Anyway it's still good, once on the field squaring off against the Calvarians no one will care about that (hint, hint!).

The only problem I see with this is that it's too similiar to the Calvarian Empire. This is one of the problems with most armies though.

These guys are badass, especially the heavy armor and air support. I love the guns too.

Sorry about that. I like to make my armies with a modern, yet still somewhat WWII-ish, feel. My dream is to build an army that mirrors something like the Death Korps of Krieg from WH40k or something like that, although those types of uniforms may be difficult to achieve with lego.

Thanks. I want to make a dropship for the Calvarians too. The Archangel was (obviously) based off of the Pelican from Halo, but I would like for a Calvarian dropship that looked like either the Helghast dropship from the Killzone games or the ones from BF2142.

The Hammersmith Storm Trooper is very similar to the Death Korp, which is purely coincidental.

I love the sniper rifles. I don't recognize the part that you're using for the scope.
The bishop is great, and the Paladin is :666:.

Actually I think I saw another guy use the idea for a gun on a hardsuit once.

And which is your army Swordsalmon?
