Like any armed force, Troopers are the core of the Dominion Military. Armed with advanced plasma weapons, equipped with the latest ultimium-composite body armour, and exhibiting high physical and mental fitness, they are renowned as the best soldiers in the local star system. This is a point of pride for the Dominion, and has gone as far to require all school-leavers to complete one year of military service as Trooper recruits, before they retrieve their citizenship.

Troopers are divided into three categories: Defenders, Specialists and Tacticians. Defenders are the basic Troopers called on for all frontline duties, and are typically equipped with Vindicator rifles. Specialists are equipped with advanced equipment and weaponry, such as Avenger rocket launchers or Seeker rifles, that are employed against specific targets. Tacticians are lightly armed, but have sophisticated communications and tracking equipment that allows them to co-ordinate multiple teams of Troopers simultaneously during missions.

For those interested, the Brickforge part breakdown per minifig is:

1x SM Armour (modified)
2x Ammo Pouch
2x Rounded Pauldrons
1x Neck Armour (modified)
1x Military Helmet
Also, one Trooper has a modified Backpack. Each minifig also has half of a Brickarms U-clip for attaching weapons

Cool, I especially like the defenders. It's also pretty cool how you did the avenger rocket launcher.

But when will we learn what this Dominion is? Until further notice I will assume it is a caste based society where unicorns and bungie cords are the government while humans do the menial work and the main diety is the lollipopkinz, who is worshiped by the gumdrop priests of the lollipop guild, and they fight the knights who eat lollipops, for they eat the children of god!

Don't forget the sugar coated soldiers and their quest for world domination in the name of the adorably evil queen of the ice cream blobs.

... Here's the description from my Flickr collection. I don't know what to do with them apart from showing off MOCs, so that's why there aren't any 'formal introductions.' I've been thinking along the lines of Napolean's works, but I don't have a solid story for them either.

My Flickr wrote:
The Parsadoran Dominion is the nation of the planet Parsador. A militaristic and isolationist society, the Dominion prides itself on its self-dependence and endurance, but this also makes them xenophobic and easy to antagonise. These tend to be points of conflict between the Dominion and other nations, most notably during the Portal War. With their large military investments, and as the highest mineral exporter, the Parsadoran Dominion is considered one of the greater powers of the local star system.

Parsador forms a binary system with Telsar, which are both orbited by three satellites: Kadron, Perseus and Tyral. Though stable, even slight gravitational disturbances to the system can lead to severe earthquakes to both planets. Due to the common struggles, the peoples of Parsador share technologies with the Telsar Territories that aim to mitigate the damage caused by such geological disasters; a relationship that is not shared with any other nation on the same or greater level.

Excellent troops!!

If you do decide to go the storyline way be sure to have your creations 'act out' parts of the story, similar to what Oreo did with his famous Brichstopian minfigs and MOCs.

These are seriously awesome! The modding you did is extremely clean.
