Hey, wow really detailed build. great job. One suggestion is just to add more pictures to break up the walls of text. +1
It can be kind of hilarious at times, as well. After clearing out Roadside Pines Motel, I pacified the last remaining Psycho, armed with a tire iron, and sent him into the adjacent compound to take on the deathclaw.
You know, I have never considered not joining the Minutemen. That opens up a lot of options for some of the more evil concepts I have running through my head for role playing builds.
Ah the elusive explosive assault rifle...I know this search well :)
All in all a pretty nice first build bud. As Ajani mentioned, some sweet screen grabs or other pictures I think would really tighten up the presentation. It's hard for most people to commit to reading a lot of text when it's all bunched together.
I do appreciate the evil raider vibe. The spiked and/or buttressed raider armor is a true aesthetic gem, so I'm glad to see a home for it here. Did you use Raider Power Armor? I've always loved the helmet on that set anyway.
Let us know if you want some help with artwork or pictures. I could even do a screenshot or two with an older character of mine who has the right look if you want.
Also - I'm going to fix your tags :)
Ladies and Gentlemen we have pictures!
This is fantastic! I was actually considering a similar build but with one notable difference:
Use your position as General of the Minutemen to use their image to bring more people into the fold of your power and influence but don’t cover your settlements in blue flags and run around singing the praise of their cause. They are a tool to you and nothing more.
That was essentially going to be my character. He become General of the Minutemen but only pay lip service to their ideals, preferring instead to use them as his own personal army. He would destroy the Institute and the Brotherhood of Steel with them and then go destroy the Railroad personally (who would be hostile to him because he obviously wouldn't issue the evacuation order during The Nuclear Option). On top of that, he would destroy any other major threats to his power, such as Raider or Gunner bases of operation, so by endgame he would be in control of the Commonwealth, with nothing anywhere close to being strong enough to stop his army of Minutemen.
