I have managed to scrape up all the blue minifigs I could find, and have made them into my feces:
Image
Some of the stuff is the same, some is new.
Image
The basic infantry, armed with laser rifles and the two in the back have loaded rocket stiks.
Image
The scouts.
Image
Ship crew and two mechaniks in the back, you can't see them too well, it's the fig with the penis tail and the guy to her right.
Image
Melee toops and a heavy.
Image
Cold Troopers, same old.
Image
Commandos, I just couldn't get rid of them :D
Image
Commander Falk, with admiral and general.

More to come.

Looks like you are going to have to reformat the picture displays or make your MOC album public so we can link there :D

Backstory:

The Hussite fed. is an alliance of 10 or so countries, the most prominent being the Empire of Luchardsko (the blue and grey guys) and Benjaminian Republik (will post later). Luchardsko, being the largest in the alliance (roughly 10 systems) is trying to stay neutral in the Immortal war, while Benjaminia (about 7 systems) is leaning in the favor of the Immortals. This makes for some interesting discussions in the senate :) . Luchardsko is the main producer of capital ships, fighter craft, tanks and mecha, while Benjaminia's ground troops are the best that money can buy in the HF. Benjaminia is also tolerant towards peaches, even letting some of them become members of their armed feces.

Luchardsko vehicles:

Image
This is a troop transport, it has a crew of a pilot and two gunners.
Image
Recon and patrol speeders.
Image
The Blue Knight and a hardsuit.
Image
A heavy tank.
Image
Artillery cannon/anti-tank cannon
Image
Mediks and a cook.
Image
Lightfoot mecha.
Image
Drednut.
Image
A troop carrier ship.
Image
It has a radar dish and two AA cannons on the roof.
Image
And two anti capital/bombardment cannons underneath the bridge, two cannons on the sides and two railguns.
Image
The back has a landing bay for a fighter or a patrol speeder.
Image
The speeder fits quite nicely in there.
Image
The bridge has two crew members at the gunnery computers, a pilot and the captain of the ship (in this case the admiral) stand on the command post.
Image
The left side of the ship has weapons and munitions stored in it.
Image
And the right has the crew cabin and bozes of food.
Image
There's a ladder down to the engine room and the debarkation ramps.
Image
The engine room with a mechanik.
Image
The troops can get off through the ramps.

I dunno...the openings above the ramps seem awfully small...

They're 4 studs tall, guess I could make them a bit bigger.

I quite like the missile pack for the dreadnut. Very class and fills the role the otherwise vacant size 2 weapons (which is important, especially when the dreadnut eventually takes two points of damage...those size 3 weapons become essentially useless)...

Why would that be? Have I missed a rule somwhere?

Size damage influences the effective size of weapons a creation is able to use. Recall that a creation can only fire up to 2x it's size in weapons on a given turn. The dreadnut is 3" in size. Until destruction, each point of damage would reduce its effective size by one. So if an arm is a Size 3 weapon, it would be usable at 0 and 1 point of size damage. With 2 points of size damage, the Dreadnut's effective size is 1"; you would have to "save up" power over a full turn before firing again.

I've certainly never played like that. I think of damage being less like reducing size and more like losing an arm or leg.
That never stopped this guy

You certainly don't HAVE to play it that way, but that is how the rules are set up (Ch. 7-8). The idea is less ABOUT size but more in terms of power capacity. A fully operational robot has all the power necessary to be efficient. But if you start blowing off limbs and taking chunks out of a vehicle, its overall power and efficiency is compromised (maybe in terms of electrical connections, etc). But even to take the example of a real human, blow off a GI's arm, and there is no chance in hell that he'll use the AR 15 with the same accuracy and deadly aim that he would have had if he was completely intact. Damage vehicles typically cannot go as far, run as fast, handle as sharply; try driving with a blown tire, or a door scraping the pavement. It's those sorts of things that "Size Damage" and "Effective Size" are trying to convey.
