I make lord of the rings and military inspired models. I am a semi purist builder but i do use the occasional brickarms. I hope you all have a great time looking at my mocs. I mostly build military models based around a backstory I have dreamed up. So without further ado I present the backstory of U.N.E.M. (it may not be finished by the time you read this so stay tuned for more updates. Enjoy!)
In the year 2020 an economic decline between Russia and Europe left Russians mad and poor. They staged a revolution and took over its capitol. The leader of Russia Andrei Vladimir, as he was known was instated as leader. He was a bloodthirsty man and vowed to return Russia to what it once was. He invaded Ukraine half a year later taking Kiev and adding it to the new Russian empire. Trade with the U.S and most other nations had ceased in July when Vladimir took power, but new trade was opened with Russia. Gun running, terrorism, drug running, and industrial espionage to name a few became key resources to the now criminal Russian empire. This allowed Vladimir to stay in power by using the money from these enterprises to make life better for his people and they continued to allow him to remain in office without a problem. In 2021 Russia began to take over parts of the Middle East including Kazakhstan. By this point countries bordering Russia were beginning to fear for their lives and so began to band together. Iceland, Norway, Finland, Sweden and Denmark banded together. The coalition was known as U.N.E.C or United Northern European Coalition and the later formed U.N.E.M or United Northern European Militia, was created to protect them. In 2022 their alliance paid off, when Russia, who was fighting in Asia, the Middle East, and now Europe attacked the Finish border. It was the first U.N.E.M border war and it started November 14th 2022. A large convoy of Russian Military Vehicles attacked Lieska a border town to Russia. The town was unprepared and was easily taken over but on July 16th, two days after the first attack U.N.E.C president Aleksander gave the U.N.E.M weapons free orders allowing them to fight and attack the Russian Federation. U.N.E.M forces were deployed to strengthen Finland’s borders and retake Lieska. On July 17th U.N.E.M team 31 was deployed into Lieska and were able to destroy a Russian anti-aircraft cannon, allowing U.N.E.M to deploy over 200 paratroopers to clear the town. After sustaining casualties the city was again announced to be part of Finland once again. More troops were put into other Russia bordering countries both Finland and Sweden. By now Russia had taken over more than half of Mongolia and had already taken a quarter of Turkey and Kazakhstan. More Russian troops poured into Finland’s Borders, and on November 28th U.N.E.C officially declared war on the Russian Federation and the first Border war had officially begun, though it really started back in November 14th when Russia invaded Finland. The first border war officially lasted from November 28th 2022 to February 5, 2023. After the first border war Russia had gained about 50 miles into Finland on its southern side, but Finland had gained about 70 miles into Russia on the Northern side. The First Border war then ended and for 7 years there would be peace and stability throughout the Nordic Region but in 2030 on September 23rd Russia would again be back. Russia struck in air raids across the Northern part of Sweden, and the raids were quickly followed by an invasion. However this tactic proved to be less effective due to increased military intelligence by U.N.E.M forces. The Invasion was quickly stopped only 20 miles past the Swedish border when U.N.E.M forces who had known were the Russians were going to strike had prepared anti-personnel and anti-vehicular landmines, as well as artillery emplacements, barbed wire and sandbag trenches and many sniper positions. The initial Russian raiding party was destroyed by landmines and snipers and the remaining Russian forces pulled back to the Swedish border. Russia then pulled troops from Sweden and several positions in Finland and instead sent parts of its navy at Iceland. Swedish naval boats were deployed and on November 3rd 2030 the Russians landed on the beaches of Iceland. Iceland had had very little time to prepare and its defenses were easily overwhelmed by a far superior Russian assault. The Swedish Navy arrived two days after the landing and were quickly pushed back from Iceland by the Russian Navy. By November 12th half of Iceland had already fallen and Russia was continuing to push forward. Then U.N.E.M sent out Team 31 to clear two Russian Destroyers. The team was brought in by helicopter convoy and landed on Keflavik and were able to destroy the first destroyer but lost a man in the process. The Icelandic air corps had Team 31 destroy 4 anti-aircraft Cannons placed around the second destroyer and after two bombing runs the second destroyer was destroyed. Russia had now taken most of Mongolia, Turkey, and had completely taken Kazakhstan. On December 14 2030 Russia lost contact with a large Russian military prison. Russia sent in several special ops teams to investigate the loss of contact. Upon landing at the base the Russian spec ops team declared most of the prison staff, MIA, but 14 of the 36 were declared KIA. Upon inspection of the prison the team found an underground scientific facility that, according to Russian Military records had been destroyed in 1972 after several failed biological super soldier experiments that had begun in 1953 and lasted until 1967 when the facility was closed down due to constant scientific setbacks. However the base had not been destroyed and was acting as a weapons development and testing center for the S.S.D or Soviet Science Division. When the spec ops team found the underground test facility they found all experiment rooms empty. They took the hard drive from the security camera feed and upon reviewing the feed, back in Moscow, they found that experiment 46 as “it” had been labeled was a test of five different Russian POWs injected with serum 46 a deadly combination of narcotics and other elements. The experiment was meant to remove the barrier in the human brain that restricted over exertion of muscles in order to make a stronger and more powerful soldier. However the serum actually hijacked the subject’s brain and created a need to spread the serum. The serum can only be spread by liquid on broken skin, and because the subjects’ whose brains had been hijacked by this virus, as it was now called, had uncontrollable urges to bite other people and so spread the disease. This breakthrough happened in 1964. The remaining three years the S.S.D searched continually for a cure to the virus. Leonid Brezhnev (the head of the Soviet Union at the time) had the idea to create more of these “mutants” to create an unstoppable army. He knew that he could not stay in power forever, and that future opposition to the creation of this army may appear so he publically closed the S.S.D but had several underground bases built, under prisons mostly, to continue the making of the zombie army he had in mind. The S.S.D continued to attempt to make the zombies but lost their funding after Leonid Brezhnev’s death. Due to the wealth of Maxim Vishnekhev a soviet scientist who had an incredibly popular cough medicine bringing in a large income.
Wow! if you read all that Great Job! if you just skipped right to the bottom like I know everyone will, go back and read it you cheater! or just go like my MOCs or something. Thanks for checking out my story as well as my MOCs. Enjoy!
