Da Ming Guo

Postby Semaj Nagirrac » Thu Sep 06, 2012 7:48 pm

In a far off galaxy lived a race of minifig known as the Han. They were a proud people and delighted in expanding their borders to introduce culture to the barbarian hordes that surrounded them. As their culture flourished, they were granted an elixir of everlasting life, so that their kingdom would always be ruled just emperors. But one day, that all changed when the Immortals defeated the grand army and subjugated their race to what would seem eternal enslavement.

As had happened before, the Immortals grew bored with their pets and simply moved on, leaving centuries of devastation and despair in their wake. With their oppressors gone, various warlords arose to unite the kingdom. Many claimed it was their birthright to rule, but only one man succeeded. After rebuilding his kingdom and the army, he organized his forces and sought out the Immortals.

He followed them to the Brikverse.

Emperor Tai Zu of the Great Ming Empire. He has drank the elixir of everlasting life and can not die.

Jian Wen, a young general and adviser to the emperor. He too has immortality.

Hong Wu, brother to the emperor. After defeating a barbarian horde on his own, Tai Zu allowed him to drink the elixir of everlasting life.

The leaders of the Grand Army.

Image
Although all soldiers are trained to use every type of weapon, the foot soldiers have arrived with their spears.

Image
Imperial Riflemen have come and are just as capable as the foot soldiers in melee. In fact, the foot soldiers and riflemen are the same when it comes to ability.

Image
Brave warriors of the Great Ming Empire!

Emperor Tai Zu: Warhead! We have not forgotten your tyranny. We have come to destroy you! My blade shall pierce your heart!

A scout bike with front facing twin cannons. This is how the Ming will scout new worlds for colonization.

Image
JingWei Fighters. The mainstay of the imperial fleet. Very fast, very deadly.

Image
Image
ShangYang Fighters. Secondary fighters from another era. Capable of travelling great distances.


This faction is a work in progress, so I will be adding more to it soon. I expect to make a lot of mechs, hover tanks, artillery and more for them.

Cool army. I really like it. It's about time that an ancient Chinese styled faction was created.

Those are some awesome armour/giant swords. Bricktw? It's also nice to see a medieval space faction that looks the part for both ways.

Perhaps they'll meet the menggu in combat.

Immortal elixir of life? Siri is definitely going to be dealing with this faction at some point.

Really great faction- but did you scrap the Avalonians to make these guys?

Yes, those are BrickTW pieces. As soon as I get Chinese script available on my computer I'll make some good soap opera episodes.

The Avalonians are not scrapped, just recycled like all of my pieces are. For the past year I've only really used about 5% of the LEGOs that I own. I've decided that with the Ming Empire the more pieces I use, the better they will look.

These guys look awesome, the new armor and swords work really well even in a sci-fi army. The vehicles are pretty cool too -- the JingWei fighter has definitely improved since the first time you posted it.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

The names for the heroes are based off the first emperors of the Ming Dynasty. The ships are based off birds from Chinese myth.

I didn't even cosider the monkey king...

I know it's going by Ming dynasty, but any chance of Lu Bu? He's pretty much a Brikwar hero In real life, so it couldn't be too hard to fit him in.

Lu Bu will be incorporated as well as the three brothers, Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, along with many others. Most heroes are going to be from different Dynasties. As for Lu Bu's weapon, I think I'm going to have to make it a custom piece. I'm looking up how to make molds and which plastics to use for casting.
