SPACEFUTURE: Moravecs 3, Robot Legion!! plus group shot

Recommended Posts

Hydra's Robot Legion is fantastic. These are considerably taller than 28mm scale, and are big even on a heroic-scale standard.

These 'bots are how we learned tinkering with the First Law is a bad idea. Older models popular for security applications came with rheostats that would adjust "how harmful does a thing have to be to be Harm" and "how human is Human, anyway?" This allowed them to rationalize the use of nonlethal force to protect Earth (and Company) interests.

Hoooo boy. THAT was a lesson Earth learned in short order. Half of the Kuiper Belt is under the Moravec sphere of influence now. 

Here is a Heavy Support Legionnaire on patrol with a Neural Inhibitor. Be prepared to prove you are, in fact, human. or it will shoot. Documents are not sufficient as proof.

And an Optio out with a Legionnaire on perimeter duty.

Their commanding officer, the Centurion (memetic viruses have become widespread on the outer settlements, and some of the robots have developed...eccentricities.)

And the entire hegemony under the literal iron fist of their gracious hierarch, Queen Mechanika.

Lovely bunch!

I like this retro stuff.

Another great group! Color choices are perfect, and you know how to pick just the right minis! Plus all the terrain additions and  background stuff!

You are a mad genius. They look great as a group and your terrain really sets the atmosphere. 


...or lack of atmosphere, as it were! ^_^

Thank you! The terrain piece with the caution tape on is a split-wafer ignition system I had to replace on an old car. It looked like a good Enigmatic Machine.
The little space rocket was a plastic toy I discovered under my fridge, left over from a previous renter. Painted it up in shiny colors. Found objects and junk are great! 
I love when minis from different sources form a coherent theme.

:lol::lol::lol: Quite so! 

And DNA tests aren't easy to do without breaching spacesuit integrity--and even then, hope you've stayed away from sources of radiation. 

It's probably simpler all around just to do a good ol' Reverse Turing Test, wherein *you* convince the *artificial intelligence* you are an organic robot and therefore not a threat.

What a great looking group of 'bots!

 

It looks like "I think, therefore I am" isn't going to help in this situation....

      I've had Garzuhl, the Mantis Man Ranger, painted up since 2015 or so, and just knew she was going to be the core of an insectile faction at some point. Then Nolzur's put out some Thri-Keen, and Reaper's Umber Hulk Burrowing Behemoth came out, and things fell into place. 

      From the sweltering hive-cities of Mercury Terminus to the windswept ice-plains of Ganymede, the Kithkthix (for that is as close to their name as we can pronounce without pheromone glands) dig in and build their mounds anywhere they can get a foothold. Their societies are termite-like, with castes for every position. Intensive artificial selection is used to form new castes as necessary--a barbaric practice to humans, but the communal Kithkthix identify as a collective rather than as individuals. The only pronoun in their language more specific than smaller than We[caste] is Queen. 

      Here are a few representatives of the hunter/gatherer caste (Nolzur Thri-Keen and a grab-bag D&D Thri-Keen), on the search for organic matter that can be used to grow the spores of the fungus that is their sole sustenance. 

       

      and a more mature member of the caste (03850, Garzuhl) with her domesticated seeker trilobites. 


      A member of the Warrior Caste, ready to rip and rend any threats to the colony: 

       
      And a member of the Excavator caste, earthmovers par excellence. This specimen appears to have sustained an injury--but what could cut through that zinc/iridium-reinforced carapace?



      Group shot: 


      BONUS: The Manna-mold contains all the amino acids, lipids, and vitamins needed for human survival, plus digestible carbohydrates. Nevertheless, it is not recommended for human consumption, especially not the ROYAL SOMA strain, as there can be adverse metabolic consequences:

      Diversity is important, and my Imperial forces and Venerians have been lacking. Well, I mean there's some ethnic diversity, but all the Venerians are ladies and all the Imperials are men. So here's a male Venerian (Hydra Valkeeri Mind Slave B if I recall). He looks like he should be played with minimal charisma by an actor named Brick Manjaw. Or Chet Chesthair, something of that nature.

      Him with the gals: 


      And likewise from the Valkeeri line, here's Empress Xenovia. But a) she's an Empress, and b) the outfit seems a bit more like the Imperials of Lord Zarek than the retrofuture vavoom Valkeeri. 



      And the whole crew:

      "Greetings. I hear tell. As some of you in this town. Fancy yourselves Tinkerers."

      Robots in hats are always great. And I've done enough shiny new 'bots for a while. So here's a rusty bucket-of-bolts in a battered bowler! Tried to make any remaining paint look battered and chipped.



      Also, here is M4R1A, clearly a Metropolis reference. But I got an idea in my head and made her into a clockwork angel with watch-part wings and a double halo of glory. 


      Guest appearances by 91002, Hellstromme, 80031, Decker Lugstampf, and 59009, Mad Scientist (Female), who have already gotten their own Weird West posts elsewhere.

      Just a simple pair of horrible spacebeasts frolicking in their native hellworld! 

      I'll have to gloss up the molten bits of the base at some point. Any tips on lava bases I should be aware of?


      In retrospect, I think the glowing mouths were inspired by the "gorilla-wolf motherbroccolers" from Attack the Block.
       
      I do not know if the designers intended this, but the pair of them are in a perfect pose for Magma Wrasslin.'
