Updated army details. Photos are a little dark, sorry about that. Better ones next time!

Before anyone mentions that it's too star-warsy, let me just say I don't really care that much - the backstories for all the characters at this point are divorced enough from Star Wars, and no one else is running as vanilla an army as I am, that it shouldn't be a problem.

Army Details
Imperial Regulars (22): The GGE's infantry is well-equipped as an expeditionary force, each member fully self-sufficient and equipped with a low-maintenance heavy rifle.
Image

Imperial Specialists (6): The Regulars are reinforced with medics (left) and scouts (right). The scouts are armed with repeater rifles. Center left is Luke Skywalker 23, commanding officer of ground troops. His assistant, Jyn Erso, provides field support as a Commander.
Image

Imperial Rangers (7): General Leia Organa's Rangers are fierce fighters, armed with a variety of weapons and specialties. Of note are the two heavies in this group, one with an RPG and the other with a minigun.
Image

Imperial Space Marines (4): Space Marines are experts at breaching enemy fortifications and vessels. Marines are armed with a low-oxygen variant of the standard Imperial rifle and riot shields.
Image

Imperial Naval Officers (12): The Navy has a variety of specialists and crewmen, including Tek officers (left) and Helmsmen (right). There are two commanding ranks, Captain (center left) and Admiral (center right). Shown here are Captain Mamoru Kodai of the North Wind and Admiral Oswald Lyons of the Western Coast Fleet.
Image

Naval Doctors (3): Ship's doctors are another fixture within the Imperial Navy.
Image

Valkyrie Squad (15): Admiral Lyons' fighter wing, Valkyrie Squadron, is equally at home in space as they are running spec ops on the ground. From left to right: Shuttle Pilot, Experimental Pilot, Captain Wedge Antilles, Flight Instructor Hera Syndulla, Ground Coordinator Chewbacca.
Image

The Golden Emperor (1): The Emperor is an ancient, metal-based being who has ruled the GGE from its inception. It is believed that the Emperor is immortal (but it is not clear if he's Capital-I Immortal.) He is seen here with his trusted advisor, Secretary Snape.
Image

Laser Masters (10): The Emperor's honor guard, the Laser Masters, rides into battle alongside him. They are led by Luke Skywalker Zero-Zero.

Nice gold monochrome, I still have yet to get one. :roll:
That would be cool for my storyline since I use a few monochromes as 'evolved DSMs.' Maybe you could fit it in. :warhead:

Current Overwatch (added troop line up 8/18/18):

Image
Image

79 soldiers
11 horses
106" total construction

The Grand Galactic Empire was founded in B.R. 2009 with the express goal of building an awesome blue-white SHIP. The titular head of the empire is the immortal Golden Emperor, who often rides into battle flanked by his Jedi Cavalry. Law and order is maintained by the Imperial Navy, consisting of five regional fleets: Western Coast, Mon Stella, Core Alpha, Core Omega, and Exploratory. The Western Coast Fleet patrols and protects the border between the Empire and the Council of 500.

Shown here is the WC Fleet Command Group, commanded by Admiral Oswald Lyons. His fleet flagship is the Katana-class destroyer/carrier Artemis. The remaining units in the Imperial Navy's standard battlegroup are: 2 Chickadee interceptors, 2 Valkyrie I space superiority fighters, a Valkyrie II heavy fighter, a Seagull support shuttle, and several ground support vehicles. Lyons is a war hawk whose aggressive attitude has often led to tense diplomatic situations, but has also effectively prevented incursions by Counciliar forces. His fleet boasts the most skilled pilots and tactical officers in the entire navy and joint operations are usually commanded from the Artemis's CIC.

Army Wishlist:
- A light corvette, something around 80 studs long. (In progress)
- A bomber
- More ground troops and ground artillery (added some more troops and dropped a couple)
- More dakka on the Artemis (AA batteries were added)
