So, back in 1994, when I created my Academy of Super-Heroes setting, I decided that one reaction to the near apocalypse of 1998 would be the formation of super-states. The European Union took in Japan and a few other countries to become the Eurasian Union, China gobbled up most of Southeast Asia and chunks of Russia, and most of the Western Hemisphere ended up in...the North American Combine. At the time, I had forgotten that this was the name of one of the factions in the OGRE wargame setting, ah well.
Fast forward a few decades, and I went in on the OGRE Miniatures Kickstarter. The minis sat in their box for a while because I'd kinda gone in on too many Kickstarters my first couple years in Amarillo, but with the SECOND OGRE minis KS due to ship, I decided I should actually paint at least some of my first set. I decided to go with the colors of my North American Combine, the flag of which is wedges of red, green, and blue merging into a white circle (combining colors of light, if you will).
Now there's all the Paneuropan units to do. It would probably be easy to do them as Eurasian Union, since that flag is blue with yellow ring around a yellow star, and the minis are already blue. But it's masochistically tempting to make them be from the "bad guy country" of Khadam...whose flag is yellow with white and green.
Edit: Image tags broke at some point in the last couple years.
