Probably like most sculptors when the
casts come in I'm aghast at them: nooooo, all my work ruined.
Scrub them up then remove the
powder/mold release agent however and they begin to grow on you. Glue
them together and give them a black wash and they start to take shape
(I missed some major mold lines in my haste, grrrr).
One flaw on these – the Synaxarion is
missing a thumb on his right hand, broken off during mold making.
This is a major no go as far as I'm concerned... if I was trying to
run a commercial business. I'm not though... but I will need to
reduce and price on them to compensate.
Machines use up far more resources in
their creation and maintenance than humans do, their entire life
cycle and food source is already established – the fuel just grows
there for them!
Their simple bio holographic brains can
easily be controlled, even a simple programme called a religion self
replicates amongst them, making the programmer god.
Or so the Redemption Sector A.I
artilect thinks in it's current situation.
Grow the humans, clone them, what the
heck. As they are birthed fully matured, use hypnotic subliminal
conditioning to make them think you are father and creator, and then
insert the desired instructions and requests, and set up hierarchies
and rankings to keep them preoccupied.
Of course they are mere humans, they
might occasionally go rogue. That's fine, don't outfit them with the
exotic zero point free energy you have, give them mundane plasma and
electrical systems. Give them a 5 year life span or so, that's fine
they are just tools for manipulating, infiltrating and controlling
societies, we have a half a million more ready for birthing tomorrow.
Don’t let the grunts in on the game
though, only create special variants of them, Machine Speakers, who
can tune in and interact with one of the drone programmes that sit
underneath us AI. We don't want our puppets to know we exist after
all... let them believe in their supreme god... us.
That's my brief blurb, the background
is constantly being refined.... anyway: Miniatures!!!!!
Here's what I hope to get in the first mold:
Ignore the shit staff thing, thats a stand in for now. Machine Speaker and Drone:
See that power glove. That controls his Nintendo.
Elite soldiers, bodyguards of the Machine Speaker maybe?
Not a fan of the hoods myself but I always get/got asked about them so they will be in the mold:
Cyborg Drone, carries the heavy shit. In this case err a robo claw and an industrial ghetto blaster arm. The ghetto blaster gets it's nickname from going through ghetto's and blasting them up, it's a heavy laser beam unit, that backpack carries liquid nitrogen to cool it down when it's pumping out heavy death beats.
All the parts ready for sprue building:
ETA - if were lucky Christmas! My day job is killing me at the moment and there are still some loose ends to tie up before I load up the webstore. Having a Financial Investment and Management background I'm a total control freak and crunch numbers on everything. I've also worked as a Risk Analyst so I need my processes and everything completely rock solid and slick before I start accepting peoples money! I also need to cross reference providers to make sure I'm getting the best deals (bulk postage, packaging... blah blah).
Cheers! I'm sure these guys will be popular, truth be told I'm glad they're out my system and I can move on ha.
Human bio-mechanioids. Where the Techno
Communion grow humans and fuse them with machinery... these humans
grow bio-mechanical stuff and fuse it with themselves.. I think. They
might not even be human but a new artificial race from human stock.
They will have some 'grown on' weapons
like this acid rifle, where they flex their weird muscles which
contract and spurt out acidic goop. Expect elongated heads (cone
heads maybe) and some alien insectoid features.
I see these guys as a small faction of
arms dealers or a mafia of some kind, perhaps running clubs and bars
where all manner of twisted aliens and humans can mingle and get weird.
