First things first, a portrait of Rosie Lugosi
yep, there's a vaudeville-or-something performer of that name IRL. "Striking, but not conventionally good-looking", as a friend described her. I'm afraid I didn't quite get the proportions right, and not as a consequence of stylization. Drats, she looks too close to the UV. But anyway, practice.
So yeah, Rosie Lugosi
. She's a Warlord of the SG, promoted from their knight-class unit, the Hazmat Trooper
). Hazzies use a variety of abilities to shock, poison and disrupt bonuses like Dance fighting, which is very useful since the Steam Gentlemen Do Not Dance. (Only thing about them is the way they walk).Rosie
, as you may guess from the outfit, has a similar set of interests as Wanda, only without the Mary Sue issue of the world revolving around her
She's more fun to be around as she's not fatalistic or dour, but does not suffer fools gladly. Sharp tongued and sharp witted.
Right back to thread stuff-

Thank you, I try.
the Commie Devils need more representation!

Yep they need more rep and allies! (Are they Royal?)
Anyway, I'd disagree with that last assessment. Historically, the USSR provided subsidies for various satellites (like Cuba). To claim that the USSR economy, such as it was, was based on tributes is a bit unfair.
Possibly incomplete is the assessment that they relied entirely on cheap mass production of military gear. The Soviets did have some interesting high tech kit, for example supercavitating torpedoes and closed circuit rocket engines (the latter they dumped in a warehouse in a fit of sore loserdom), and while it's clear who has the best air fighters (US) it's also clear who has the best fliers (USS- uhm, now Russia).
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.
