The RAG and the Rise of Tunasailor Update:2 13th of may

Post by tunasailor » Sat Apr 30, 2011 1:24 pm

I finally found a name for my faction, other than just PMC, and I name it
the RAG (or the Republic Alliance of Gimlé-solarsystem) And a Back story!

It started out as a PMC (private military company) It had no political opinions and worked for those who payed the highest. It started to grow bigger because of high registrations of soldiers,
and there for it needed a main base instead of being scattered around the galaxy.
So they colonized one of the planets in the Gimlé-solarsystem, Ferri, That was a metal rich planet, but very little life because of bad living conditions. There they started to build the foundation of their new nation.
They merged with the other planets around which were settled by a little nation and other military corporation, much smaller than the PMC, along with a space pirate port.
And then they took up the name RAG, which increases rapidly in population growth.

I just finished building my army as it was buried deep in Lego boxes, but it has no vehicles... yet.
I was thinking about making a forum battle, but I currently have no place to have it.
So I will build a SHIP instead(hopefully) and I have already sorted my whole collection to make it easier.

Here is the army of RAG:

Image

Updated picture of the army:
Image

The ground troops:

Image
Armed with rocketlaunchers, Shotguns, Assaultrifles and Sniper rifles.
The Commander has a special assaultrifle with grenadelauncher(he is not a cyborg, I use it as a face mask with visors)


The space marines:

Image
Use compact rifles for advantage inside spaceships and suits that makes them able to survive in space.(not a big oxygen tank)
A blue officer controls them.

Special squad of the space marines:

Image
Flamethrower, grenade launcher, LMG and anti-material rifle. Red officer controls them.

Assassins:

Image
Use katana and silent smg's, they also have red multi-vision goggles. The leader has a sniper instead of an smg.

The heavies:

Image
Close-combat guys use Turbo spears and shields, and the gunners have heavy machineguns with grenadelaunchers and bayonet.
The officer wields a minigun and golden katana. (shoulder pad idea from Warhead)

Engineers and medics:

Image
Engineers will be in the SHIP and maybe the tools are a little copy from Bricksyd.
The medics all have a syringe gun for ranged healing if soldiers have bruises and are feeling pain.

General and his bodyguards:

Image
These are elite soldiers with compact rifles and swords. The General is one of the highest ranked people with in the RAG.

The fighter pilots:

Image
Craziest and best pilots around, often formerly spacepirates, one flight bot that acts like r2-d2 and the main pilot.

And here is the Captain of the SHIP I'll be making:

Image
One lady pilot and two co-pilots, one of them formerly a pirate captain and uhm... the coastguard.

~UPDATE~
Army consists of:
10 Space marines
3 officers
12 ground troops
1 commander
5 heavy troopers
3 assassins
3 medics
7 pilots
3 engineers
1 general
4 elite bodyguards
1 mayor/captain
=53 men, not that big army

And now for the Vehicles:

Armored cars, yes I made two of them now!
Image

One with auto cannon
Image

And the second with AA guns and missiles
Image

Next up is the RAG light dropship:
Image
Armed with two rockets and gatlingun to clear the landing zone

It even has a cargo hold:
Image

Takes up to four passengers:
Image

And the last but not the least...

The brand new Rhino Armored Personnel carrier(APC)

Image

Image

It sacrifices weapons for heavier armor and speed

Image

Working hatch:

Image

It fits six soldiers plus one driver:

Image

Armed with autocanon and two missiles:

Image

here is a fig for scale:

Image

These are all the vehicles for now, but more are to come

~UPDATE~

The Gunship is ready!

First I wanted to make it like a futuristic Hind
so I made the cockpit similar to my old Hind here.
Image


I made the cockpit first, but then I had no idea of how I should make the body,
so I googled "gunship" and found some nice warhammer gunship(valkyrie) with a cockpit that looked a lot like mine,
so there I got a lot of ideas how to make a futuristic gunship.

And now I present the RAG Gunship(no name yet)

Image

It is a heavily armed and armored VTOL gunship that that boasts a number of weapons and explosives

Image

Chin-mounted canon, two light machineguns ideal for air to air combat,
and varieties of missiles under the wings

Image


Image

The RAG use the gunship for close-airsupport against ground units and armor,
it can also deploy troops and equipment into hot-zones and support and clear landing-zones thanks to the VTOL engines.
It can take up four troops at once in the back.

Image

One pilot and gunner are needed to fly it:
Image


I'm currently trying to build a tank, but I only have these shitty treads:
Image
Way to bulky, I might just build them out of bricks.


Things I will build next, hopefully
Tank
Mecha
artillery canon
more stuff...


That's all I have for now, Thanks for looking!

I'm a little suspicious here: Your infantry officer uses one of my troops' standard helmets almost exactly, and what happened to your SHIP the Nidhoggur?
Awesome army though

Thanks! Yeah, the nidhoggur kind of got taken apart while ago, but that is why I'm making a new one.

Is that, which one? And can I get a link to yours? I want to see :D

A good force, and a game wise too. I like how you did every squad different and unique with their characteful officers.
Good luck on the ship!

Those are some good weapons.

This is the best I can do without actually taking more pictures(and I'm too lazy to do that.), some/most of the guys in the jeep have my old standard helmet, the one you used.
And your assassins look pretty close to my sigfig(in my avatar)

there are only so many parts to work with to begin with....... so duplicates are kinda expected....



anyway, niceish army. though it seems more like 3 or four different armies who are collaborating together more than a single unified force at this point.

The fluff/backstory explains why that is. What amazes me is that with the same pool of parts and bits to draw on is just how unique everyone's army manages to be. Good work btw, - I really like seeing forum members' minifigs on parade.

Thanks for the comments people!
I have a question: can anyone put the RAG on the wiki for me? I'm terrible in english and I would be very thank full.
And my SHIP will hopefully be ready before the weekend!
