Ideas for Troops
Join to comment
I hope this is okay for discussion. I have made some troops that I will post tomorrow and I realized something, we all have our own variants for troops, and I was wondering if you have any ideas for automated troops? And yes, I have seen Awesome-o's robot and Gus' robot too, but I am talking about simple robot that can be made with a quick manufacture.

I am working on a two legged design with the gun built right in. Think of if you ever played the megaman series drone, and it is kind of like that.

Interesting. Well, I'm off now to make a copy of the Warhammer 40k Dreadnaught for the COP, and see how good I can make it without scrapping anything.

I return! I got the front of the body, the second hardest part done, but I still need to figure out the legs and arms. Those will be hard... for clarification, a Dreadnaught in this sense is like the ultimate battle armor. Except once you go in, you never come out...

Yea, sure, why not. COP goverment forces are the light grey ones it seems, everything else is local controlled, thus exempt from light grey.

Yes, preferably light grey for the armor and hull and everything, and dark grey for the detailing.

I just want to get one thing straight. There are two different uniforms for the COP. ONe is the Clone/Storm Trooper armor with any color helmet sleeve variations. And the other is the classic Rebel snowtrooper with dark grey sleeves or any color variation and helmet. Am I correct?

Not like that. I was saying for basic. You can make any type you want. It could be green it could be blue it could be rainbow with a tad of pink for all it matters.

FYI, there is no official MOC for the CF units. I would just see them in Haywire or War Stories. I didn't want to make a whole MOC for them because they are such rip offs.

I know that part. I made a couple of basic sentry drones that a little, different. I do like the CF units.

I have a new idea for COP naval forces. We hire pirates. Before you wave your objections, just read on real quick. Hiring pirates has been a staple of naval warfare since it's inception. They work on the grounds of whatever they get, they keep. With hiring in place, they get assured money from a fixed area making them more inclined to help. Being basically citizens, enemy garrisons and fleets won't know until they are hit from the wrong side. I will be posting something like that sometime this month or next. I am working on a sort of attack gunship that they can all ride in. I may have the minifigures up very soon, like next week.

There are many barbarian forces outside the COP that have not seen the light of the Emperor. Perhaps, they can be bought to fight for us. Maybe even converted...

Barbarians could act as mercs, we have more then enough money to hire them, and while they fight for us we teach them to follow the light of the great emperor!!

You can't push that once you get them under your wing, otherwise they would push away. However, once you get a simple report with them, then you can try to convert. I will post it sometime this week.
