Flash Dune Armies by Norsehound Flash Dune Armies by Norsehound
More stuff for the Flash Dune PnP game I'm working on. The only faction missing is the Bene Tleilax, but I have something special in mind for them.

Care to guess who represents what faction? :)

The Spacing Guilt navigator looks like Dr. Zoidberg.

Nice ^^ I've only read the first two books though, so I'm not familiar with all the factions (unless I missed something...) The spacing guild is an absolute no brainer, you can't miss it if you've read only even one of the books ^^

Herbert's books cover three distinct periods of DUNE history. The first three books are within the reign of Paul Muad'dib. The Forth book is set at the end of the reign of Paul's son, Leto, nearly a thousand years later. The fifth and sixth books are set another thousand years in advance. There's tons of rooms for many factions :)

The Spacing Guild and the Bene Geserit order are the two powers mentioned to some degree, though the Bene Geserit has a main character in every book. So are mentats, but not house Tleilaxu specifically.

Okay, I'm a huge Dune fan boy. I think I can do this.

Top from left to right:
-Bene Gesserit
-House Harkonnen
-House Atreides
-Spacing Guild

Middle from left to right:
-Sardaukar
-Fremen
-Ixian Confederacy
-Landsraad(?)

Bottom from left to right:
-Fish Speakers
-Honored Matres

I'm not completely sure, but hopefully I got it. Did I? This doesn't include those shitty prequels, sequels, and inbettween books made by his dipshit son and friend, do they? The ones with Terminator in space, the dumb House Vernius, and the insulting Paul of Dune shit. I also don't that green guy's for House Ordos from the games. They looked more freakishly Ix-Tleilaxu mixed looking. Honestly I'm not a fan to anything of Dune outside of the original six books. Those things are gold.

Really? I didn't look at the comments, actually.

Oh trust me. You're not missing anything, except maybe a head ache.

It would be more impressive if I hadn't revealed the answers already some posts up :) But you are correct.

I've played some of the games, but when it comes to books I'm not going outside the original six. I feel I'd be too disappointed.

Fish speakers and Honoured Matres at the bottom. I don't know who the green guy in the middle row is. Ixians? CHOAM?

Which one's the fish speaker and which one's the Honored matres? :)

Ixians should be obvious. He isn't CHOAM and Ordos is not represented.

Well, I would assume the blue is the Fish Speaker and the orange the Honoured Matre (orange/yellow outfits with dragons seemed to be their thing).

I'm actually working on making some Dune-based flags and banners, so I'm curious if there's a specific reason you chose that cross symbol for the Ixians? I've been having a tough time coming up with a good banner for them.

(You can see my House Atreides and House Harkonnen banners in my gallery.)

Ok, you got the Fish Speakers and Honored matres correct, so I'll give you the last ones. Ix is the grey guy with the big gun, but the teal guy with the maltese cross on his cap is a Landsraad representative. The Landsraad was one of the three optional factions in the 1978 Dune, so I wanted to include them for this rapid play version.

Oh jeez, for some reason, I thought the grey guy was another Sardaukar (my brain didn't register for some reason that it was odd that there were apparently two Sardaukars)... It actually looks a lot like one of the Sardaukar concepts for the Alexandro Jodorowsky version of Dune.

I decided to go with the Lynch version of the Sardaukar (while changing his suit color to purple to match the house), because there's a Dune calendar art piece with fully-suited Sardaukar as well.

If Ix deployed troops I can see them equipping them with technologically superior gear. You can presume they'd be invading Arrakis to secure Spice for themselves and grow their monopoly into other markets.

I've always liked Lynch's Sardaukar (I have the action figure on my desk! ;)). I know the art you're talking about... John Shoenherr, I believe was the artist. I have an illustrated copy of Dune that uses those pieces, and the Sardaukar one is one of my favourites.

Definitely, the outfit for the Ixian soldier is very fitting. I can totally imagine them having special heavy shock troops with armour like that grafted to them or something.

Soooooooooo adorable! The Navigator and his entourage are my favorites out of this group. Now I want to go watch the miniseries again.

The bottom row looks like Chani and Alia, but I don't know what sort of factions they'd represent...

(boo Lynch-movie designs!) :(

Middle: Sardaukar/Corrino, Fremen, IX, Ordos
Bottom: not a clue

Ordos is not included because they technically aren't canon.

Really I'd only expect people not to get the bottom ones and the two on the right of the middle column. It's because they didn't really come into prominence in any of the TV series/Lynch movie and the only way you'd recognize them is if you read the books.
