3rd Regular Army Deserters

Post by Quadruple.Digits » Tue Jan 28, 2014 12:34 am

I may be a newcomer, but at least I came prepared...

I call these guys: The 3rd Regular Army Deserters

Command:
Image
(Note the guy with the cape isn't my hero. He just orders around the troops.)


Troops: (AKA cannon-fodder. They never do anything except die. Which is the point, I suppose.)
Image
I'm mostly using Ep. 3 and Clone Wars troopers. Thinking of expanding to something not so blatantly Star Wars.


Scouts:
Image


Grenadiers: (AKA marines. Lego blatantly ripped off 40K with these guys)
Image
These guys usually hitch a ride in the Cheeseboard (see below).


Melee specialists:
Image
This lot jump on the back of the Flamin' Halftrack (again, see below).


Hero #1 - Cyrus, the syntactic non-conformist
Image
He's my main hero. The other two are replacements.

Hero #2 - Archie, the long denigrator
Image

Hero #3 - Fumbles, the ninja guy
Image
Just don't ask about the titles.

*The building visible as backdrop in some photos is a semi-ruined outpost I've made. Pics may follow.


AND NOW... THE VEHICLES
Starting with the air force:

The Cheeseboard
Image
The flagship. She's a swanky bird.

Capacity - 13 figs, including pilot

The Dragonfly

And a *thwoosh* shot, because the other one just doesn't cut it. Don't mind the hand.
Image


The Tablespoon
Image
And it's counterpart, The Steak-Knife
Image


And finally, the esteemed Fork brothers
Image


Ground vehicles (Currently working on these)

Mechsuits
Image
Ellie on the left, Midge on the right. They support the foot-sloggers.


And... The Flamin' Halftrack
Image
Has a capacity of 8 figs in the back.

So... yeah. That's what I've got completed so far. Other additions may follow.

Soon.

-----EDIT-----
Minor reinforcements, consisting of, and not exceeding, one (1) battle tank.
Image
The Land Shark. My new anti-everything tank.

Also, I've developed a new mounted machine-gun.

Not that anyone's going to be using it up there.

You did a great job of making a clone army unique. The vehicles are great btw. The Cheeseknife is great, my favorite, reminds me I should spend tomorrow making my transport.

I am not a fan of Clone/Stormtrooper armies but the melee specialists look cool!

The Halftrack is the best here. It's so whacky in a Brikwars way.

You did indeed come prepared. The vehicles are very nice, and so are the more unique clones. I would say mostly move away from clones as regulars, those melee specialists are pretty cool.
Ask now what I'm doing, even for me :mystery:

Wow, these guys are amazing. You did a great job adding flavor to your clone minifigs, and you built some pretty awesome vehicles -- especially that mothership.

Hey! It's not a ripoff, it's an homage.

The armor itself is based on Lex Luthor's power armor rather than 40k, although I don't think we ended up giving it to him except in the video games. But you know how it goes - as long as we had the design anyway, why not release it in ultramarine color for the fanboys?

I'm pretty sure the Galaxy Patrol guys were originally all going to get this armor in all different colors, but they got scaled back for some reason.

Possibly because GW demonstrated its willingness to sue anyone who uses "space" and "marine" in the same sentence.

Nah, I don't think LEGO would even blink. I'd pay to watch GW's legal team try to step to the guys LEGO keeps on retainer.

I'd like to think that too, but I suspect that confrontation has already happened. The "Space Troopers" cuusoo theme was originally called "Space Marines", until someone requested they cease using the name because it coincided with a trademark owned by another company. I think we can guess which company that was.

This a a really interesting use of a clone army, I like it a lot. The vehicles are great, and the dragonfly is probably my favorite. Continue to find little ways to modify the clones and differentiate them from the originals, like you did with the melee troops. You could change some of the arms, legs and helmets for instance.

As said before the clones look great, but if you want to customize them further you really don't have to do much. Swap out a few helmets or leg bits and you'll have a mean looking custom army - the clonesuits make a really good base for the rest of a uniform to follow up on. For example, your melee dudes may only have a cape and a sword, but that's still enough to make them not look like blatant star-wars ripoffs.
