Elkossian New Republik - Reinforcements & group pic

Postby Kastrenzo » Fri Sep 06, 2013 10:57 pm

This doesn't really belong in bricks, and while I've already got an umbrella *albeit unfinished* thread for all my armies. I wanted to show the revamps and massive additions that were made to my second largest faction. the ENR.

Supposed to fill the role as cheif enemy of my sizeable Elkoss Dominion army, the New Republik before was an unorganized rabble. it had little to no uniformity,and It really had little work put into it at all. The overall theme of my armies was supposed to be kind of a post apocalypse style, but not the scavenger ramshackle type. If you still don't understand look at one of the TLDR articles or one that is linked to it Elkoss

This is a picture from about a month ago.
Image


This is them now. This picture was just the soldiers and some UGVs, but showcasing the infantry revamp
Image


Deployment of RDF Guardsmen, Basic rifle Infantry, there are now 40 in total. for every 4 Guardsmen there is a Veteran, an NCO to lead them, so 10 teams of 5 = 50 basic troops
Image

High command, the Military leadership of the NR, inspecting the troops, I quite liked the Krpytonian minifigs even if I'm not a fan of Superman, the center fig was given an Alpha Team Ogel chestplate and solid black helmet though
Image
No, they're not peaches anymore
Image

Guardsmen recieving their equipment, Instead of training specialists. Each squad is given access to a rocket launcher and a heavy rifle to bring with them and use as needed, All of their weapons are pre-war designs that the NR has developed the capacity to produce
Image

Support Gunners restocking ammo at a Supply UGV, Their Machine guns are a NR design of converting a heavy rifle into an automatic support weapon.
Image


The Dominion have recieved a signifigant update too, mostly just to the grunt riflemen, I've done away with -most- of the Snowtrooper heads. But I'm going to keep them so that the troops can alternate between.

I'll be updating my main thread too. Just wanted to show the new stuff.
Also. The new NR soldiers were made from the black police uniforms off pick a brick, but I cut out electrical tape and covered them since I don't want to put the brasso on them right now *Seriously there are 40 of them and it takes up to 10 minutes to get all the decals off them*,

Excellent army you have constructed. The Basic rifle Infantry armor looks quite a bit like riot gear, which is really cool. I also love the heavy rifle design.

:alot: of my figs use just basic bodies without decals,

I've been using the plain black guys for over 10 years back when I used to just play with Lego as a toy, They're not flashy or fancy, but they're simple and easy to produce. and while I doubt I'll be ordering any more myself, they're something that was made 90% from Pick a brick. the only things that didn't come from PAB were the black hands which I had stockpiled from digging in buckets.

I'm going to take half an hour before I go to bed, and try to get a single screenshot of all of my minifigs, I must have 3 or 4 hundred now. Just to show the diversity of my armies

SHAMELESS LATE EDIT - Also those weapons in the last pick were supposed to be machine guns, the "Heavy Rifles" you can't really see, they are in the two crates to the left on the equipment room picture.
Megaphones with these for barrels , the weapons just sitting on the ground are normal rifles.

Love these guys. Really wanna get my hands on some of those Evil Supermen.

Your pics are passable but could you try for some better lighting? I can't make out the details clearly enough.

It's my camera, it doesn't have very many Mpixels, and the room that my computer *where these photos were taken* has half the lights burnt out

Will have better lighting in the aforementioned "large group picture", since I'm in my spare room there,

Here's a preview, also a note on the white mostly SW army, the "Snowtroopers" are the most numerous of that bunch, but like I mentioned I have new heads/helmets for all of them except two, I honestley don't mind the blandness of the Stock SW figures. Just those damned Orange Cloans and those ATAT Pilots are rather awkward. These are my "Main" 5 Factions. Dominion, New Republik, Techon Sovereignty, MOTA and the Great Triangle Society
Image


And I've still got these left to place, I'm going to bed though so I'll have to finish it later. Too tired
Image

I know this total number of figs doesn't have anything on those of say, Kaplan or maybe Natalya * I really don't know who has what anymore*, But I don't even wan't to think about counting them right now.

I'd estimate my total number of armed and armoured minifigs to be between 300 and 500. almost every fig has a gun, My Vehicle count is dreadfully low in ratio comparison though, and some factions barley have any at all. White Black and Red have a decent amount, Blue is plagued with stock lego sets and abononations of modified stock sets *Their only car is a hilarious up-armorued Harry potter car from the chamber of secrets series from years ago*

I just always preferred to have a lot of men, And for someone who doesn't actually play Brikwars because he's too picky and fucking lazy to re-learn the rules. I think I've got too many now even for a hobby.

going to post this in my main thread, but I'll put it here too.

this thread was just supposed to show the new additions/revamp to the black army. I won't derail it any further.

Image
Elkoss Dominion - 136
Elkossian New Republic - 84
Techon Soverignty - 37
MOTA - 44
Great Triangle Society - 32
Peach Remnant Scum - 19
Brotherhood - 12
Desert Nomads - 16
The Visitors - 63
Civilians - 55

Total 490-500
Funny it doesn't feel like 500, Feels closer to 300, but I counted them over many times.

Your Elkosian Army looks amazing. I think you need to take better quality photos. ;) (with plain backround etc.)

I'll try putting a sheet of paper behind it or something,

When I'm taking pictures I'm usually at my desk and there isn't a lot of room, nor is there good lighting in here.
My Sony camera is also not very good, although I might have a Canon that I can use if I can find it's cable

Right now I'm using this peice of crap, OK for normal pictures, but not good for detailed closeups

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=11143

I would like to update the picture when you upload a more cleaner version.

I'll get you a group picture with vehicles added as well.

EDIT - Here, Best I can do with my current camera, and I don't have a lot of space right now. If I can find the cables for my Canon I can try again if this one is no good. If you'd rather something different then don't even add it to your thread and I'll just make another one, I'll have to do it on the floor or something.
Image

Double Edit - Okay, seriously, Photobucket is fucking with the image quality.

I don't mean to necro an old thread, but I was looking over this again and I realized that if I wanted to build an army like this today, I couldn't

I don't really do the post war theme anymore but regardless, I can't just order a shipment of all black figs anymore because Lego severley reduced the number of parts available on pick a brick, which is very annoying. the bodies of these guys were the old 2005-2012 police bodies with electrical tape *lol* on their chests, which have been entirley discontinued

Not just minifig parts either, but a lot of accessories, and most annoyingly, plants. I have very few trees outside of those ugly things that come in some of the starwars battle sets, and I was planning on ordering a lot of the large spruce and spherical trees. they are discontinued and only the small spruce are on pick a brick now.

You could just order them from bricklink. They're quite cheap.
