Favourite Imperial Faction!
Posted 19 October 2010 - 08:08 PM
but the old one are hardly original , because copied the bluecoats , and most of the new ones could be made it in cheap plastic , that is not a trouble at all , but the hands with the yellow/lime green isn't great
the bluecoats could be nostalgic, but if you look closely, you could see the first clone army of TLG, many years before Star Wars
We should recognize to the bluecoats the introduction of the Flintlock Musket , the eppaulettes , the shakos and the backpacks , but they stay short with the expressions of their faces .
the old redcoats, don't introduced nothing new at all , and the new ones, despite having new faces (with pupils on his eyes) and a new design on their backs and in their shakos, doesn't have backpacks , and still been practicaly the same design
But the Armada... the smallest and bravest faction .
Like the islanders:kahuka:, The Armada seems that doesn't had the full support of TLG, a few colections in a few years, but with the Armada, TLG introduce the morrion helmet, symbol of conquest and expansion:pir-sad2:, but also of exploration and adventure ; bearded faces , with all the taste 16th century fashion, the shiny plate, that reminds me the movie The Mission (1986) (If you don't see it yet, I recomend it) and the colorfull ship, that before being built seems meaningless , but in the end is one of the most beatifull ship made from TLG
I can bet now that you know for wich faction I'll vote?
Larga vida a la Armada!

think about it...
redcoats are british right? ya they are
so when napoleon threatened to invade britain, the brits fought back -against the french AND the spanish- and won the napoleonic wars!
