I was going to say, "Those remind me of something by Theblackdog," but then I noticed that you were in fact the OP. You have a certain cool style that is easy to notice.

President Bob the Unbuilder often brings his cabinet with him when he charges into battle. Coincidentally, all of them are also old friends from his days as a contractor.

Image
The Secretary of Defense typically arms himself with a chainsaw, and carries a massive shield made of solid steel.

Image
The Secretary of Offense carries a mighty Chainstaff.

The Director of Homeland Security, armed with a pneumatic nail gun, which he fires EVERY POINT FIVE SECONDS.

The Secretary of Education, armed with a power saw and a massive stick of dynamite. Don't fuck with him.

Just a few minor updates:
Image
Image
Testing out a conventional cockpit on the FLASH. It adds room for a missile bay in the back of the hull where the old cockpit was, which is nice, but I just don't think it looks as good as the old version. Maybe I'll try again with a different canopy sometime.

Image
I reworked the 'wings' of the SPLAT, to see if I could solve some of its structural problems, and it worked out way better than I expected. I also redesigned its autocannon batteries, and they ended up looking way better.

Image
Moar dakka, bitchez.

Image
I did a careful count of my minifigs and decided that I've got just enough to give the T.L.A. two fairly coherent five-man infantry squads. The problem is I haven't had time to choose helmets for them all. I'm taking a small selection of bricks back with me to college and may have time to work on some microspace, but in all likelihood this is the last thing I'll be able to post in a while. Thanks again for your comments and keep on building.

At an ancient Deadly SpaceMan outpost, the T.L.A. found the weapon that could liberate their world from the Britannian invaders -- but inadvertently revealed the location of their last redoubt to Admiral Blackdog. Both sides are hurtling towards a battle that will decide the fate of the planet Refuge -- and the T.L.A. will not be found lacking in firepower.

Image
The Ballistic Attack Long-Range Launching System (B.A.L.L.S.) is the T.L.A.'s newest and most powerful armored vehicle. First tested at the DSM outpost, it is armed with a massive railgun powerful enough to punch through Landship hull plating, a secondary anti-aircraft Gauss cannon identical to that used on the S.T.U.D.S., and two anti-infantry plasma cannon in sponson mounts. But these are only its secondary weapons...

Image
Its main payload consists of two quad-MKII missile launchers, each capable of delivering a devastating salvo against infantry or armor alike. Extra ammo stored within the hull allows it to keep up a high rate of fire, overwhelming enemy units at range.

Image
Image
Multiple lifting turbines supplement the standard plasma-cushion hover system, allowing the tank to move its enormous bulk at unusually high speeds.

Image
The B.A.L.L.S. has relatively little interior space compared to more conventional SDTs, but it still has enough room for a squad of Assault Commandos in the back. Given the height of the exit hatch, they could probably be considered paratroopers rather than mechanized infantry.

Image
The Omega-class fast-attack cruiser was rushed into production after the prototype destroyed a Britannian ship during its shakedown cruise. Two heavy missile batteries and an enormous rail gun allow this ship to annihilate enemy capital vessels.

Image
It is an advanced but fairly conventional T.L.A. design, with large fuel tanks and a single massive sublight drive torch. Excess mass has been eliminated wherever possible to give it acceleration and maneuverability on par with most frigates.

Image
I'm especially proud of the maneuvering thrusters.

Image
The nose section took me weeks to figure out... until I realized that I had forgotten about hinge bricks entirely.

Image
FWOOSH. Note, only the gray piece is an engine nozzle, the yellow cylinders are fuel tanks.

Image
I quite like how the big rail gun came out.

Image
The F.L.A.S.H. interceptor has been upgraded again, mostly with new weapons but with some aesthetic improvements as well.

Image

Image
Side on like Bonn-o-Tron. I took off the clunky fixed guns on either side of the nose, you'll be hearing more about the replacements later.

Image
Underside, showing the Assyrian pattern rotary gauss cannon pod (inspired by the Vanquisher SDT's sponson mounts, naturally).

Image
With the gear down, the pod barely clears the ground.

Image
Short-range IR guided dogfight missiles. Almost every FLASH pilot knows not to leave home without a pair of these mounted above the wings. They are primarily designed for atmospheric use but thrust-vectoring nozzles allow them to be used for close-in dogfights in space.

Image
T.L.A. standard MKII missile pods. These are the same type of missile carried in the B.A.L.L.S.' launchers. Designed for range, compact size, and economy, they can be loaded with a pre-programmed trajectory before launch or home in on a target marked by a laser designator.

Image
VDM-141 Volume Denial Missiles substitute blast radius for fine tracking ability, and are typically launched from long range at the start of a ship-to-ship battle in space. Experiments in using these weapons for air support in surface engagements would have found them to be 'overkill' if such a thing existed.

Image
RGB-9001 free-fall bombs. What's the difference between a poorly designed reactor and a well designed bomb? One makes everything in a thousand-meter radius safe for democracy, while the other just explodes messily.

Image
Interchangeable gun pods. The rotary Gauss cannon (upper left) is used for short-range atmospheric combat, while the larger single-barrel high velocity Gauss cannon is used in space.

Image
Space-combat configuration with high velocity Gauss cannon, Volume Denial Missiles, and short-range IR missiles.

Image
Aerial Bombardment configuration with RGB-9001s and short range IR missiles. Rarely used, as ground force commanders tend to be annoyed when the entire battlefield suddenly becomes concave. You can't really see the underside, but it's carrying a Rotary Gauss Cannon.

Image
Finally, the reason why I made all these weapons. I haven't done one of these loadout shots in ages.

I'm tempted to donate all of my sloped and wedged pieces to you, just so you can make more stuff like this.

It's impressive that you can keep such a beautiful design and yet still have a lot of dakka
