Liberty City.

Liberty city was formed in the year of the end. Surviving people and cops fled the ruined Nu Manhattan. On the Northern bank of the river they met another group of survivors which had more cops, some SWAT members and a few military reservists. The groups joined and moved to a good location to build a place to live. This was to become in time - Liberty City. 

The city treats everyone as equal. Mutants or Norms. It is ruled fairly, which is unusual. The city forbids Slaves and Slavers are imprisoned. It is this that has attracted many to the city. Liberty City is the worlds largest city which is some going as it hasn't come from a bunker (pop approx 10,000). 

However Liberty city has had some hard times of late. They have received a kicking trying to "liberate" Nu Manhattan ruins from the gangs. Their old enemies New Sodom City had attacked them and the Bandits and Raiders of the Badlands also attacked at the same time. 

Inside the City's walls horns sound. The cities people move towards Liberty Square as something is happening. 

Onto the podium strides Lord Snipe. A lord who dealt with the cities admin and was rumoured to be a trained assassin. 

Lord Snipe is a resin mini from the Ramshackle's Society of intrepid explorers.

Clearing his throat he addresses the city. 

"My fine people I am the bearer of sad tidings. President Meers died this morning tragically and brutally stabbing herself in the stomach with a poisoned knife whilst eating her breakfast!" 

"It would seem that General Motors, the Commander of our armed forces also suffered an accident. He savagely hacked his own head off whilst shaving! So with a heavy heart I take control of the city. President Meers ran the city to the ground fighting fruitless wars."

"I have recalled all our flagging warriors to the city. We shall regroup and take stock. We are in desperate times. We shall stop invading the Nu Manhattan ruins, they are not ours. We will seek the gangs friendship and offer aid in their struggles against New Sodom City. In time we will make the badlands safer by taking out the raider and bandit gangs, thus giving us better trade to the North. As for New Sodom City we will of course step back but hold our own against them until we can take them. Slavery is still abolished and slavers will be shot on sight in our territories."   

"As for the manpower crisis, I will not be forming a militia just yet. I am allowing the hiring of Freelancers and Mercenaries to beef up our lines. Meers was a fool as she didnt allow mutants into our ranks of warriors. She thought that you would be hard to control. I do not. Any mutant who wishes to stand and fight for Liberty may now join up!" 

"Lieutenant Venom is out most senior surviving officer. He has served the city for 30 years. He is now promoted to Commander of our armies!. Venom has been given the power armour of office!"  
Commander Venom is a plastic Viridian with a Westwind USA WWW2 head. 

"Staff Sergeant Turnip is now promoted to Captain of the City!" 

Captain Turnip is a plastic Viridian with a Westwind USA WWW2 head. 

"Sergeant Luna is now promoted to Lieutenant and will head up the cities Special Operations units"

Lt Luna is a Warzone mini. 

"Sergeant Junko is now promoted to Lieutenant and will head up the cities internal policing units"

Lt Junko is a EM4 cop.

"Sergeant Walker is now promoted to Lieutenant and will head up the cities external policing & combat units"

Lt Walker is a clix mini.

Random Liberty City Watchmen. Left 2 EM4 Cops, Guy on the right EM4 plastic Combat Zone mini. 

Liberty city Watchman medic. EM4 plastic combat zone trooper. 

The first mutant to sign up for Liberty City's equal opportunities program (to die for the city!).....Sargent D. 

People who ask what the "D" stands for get belted with that nasty looking club. Sargent D laughs at the bloody mess and grunts "Death!". 

Sarge D is also equipped with a fearsome triple barrelled cannon loaded with grapeshot (or any small metal items he can find). He forms the backbone of the city's Security force. Often the sight of the triple barrelled weapon being pointed in your direction makes most hostiles either run or become anxious to talk. Commander Venom had banned D from firing the weapon indoors as it often makes buildings collapse.  

Sarge D's other duties include training up recruits to the cities forces. Many would happily go and face death just to escape D's shouting and yelling. 

The mini is a modified GW Ogre Bull. 

Here come the new recruits to patrol the mean streets of Liberty City! Norms and mutants working together for a better future! Or that is the statement Lord Snipe has issued. 

L-R - Pvt Meat Head (Warzone), Sgt Kolon (rear - EM4 Cop), Corporal Nobhead (rear - EM4 Cop), Sgt Grimli (Front Right - Hasslefree Grymn) Merry (Front left- Hasslefree Grymn) and Erik (Front Centre - Hasslefree Grymn)

Pvt Meat Head sports a support weapon. He is a bit thick, hence his nick-name. 

Sgt Kolon and Corp Nobhead are old school Watchmen and will not get directly involved unless they absolutely have too. They also take bribes and run small scale rackets. Commander Venom is planning on slinging them behind desks. 

Sgt Grimli is friends with Sarge D, despite D trying to eat Grimli the first time they met. These two mutants have each others backs and if you insult one - you usually insult the other. Sarge D has killed folks who made the mistake of calling Grimli a "lawn Ornament" or other heightist comments! 

Merry is the first lady mutant (dont say Stuntie...D is within hearing!) to join the Liberty security forces (Watch). She is scientifically minded and is setting up a basic forensics lab. Are you listening scavenger? Find any good lab kit and this girl will pay handsomely. 

Erik is a typical warrior and his skills make him a useful chap in the Watch. This faction will be getting more recruits with time as I have more ideas.
