Devo Ranks, Cyberist, in Cyberpunk Dystopia


Recommended Posts

It would be nice to think about cyberpunk utopias, but somehow those just don't grip the popular imagination. Instead it's always overcast or raining, the sky is brocced, corporations own everything and everyone and surveillance is ubiquitous. There's money to be had, but barely enough to buy noodles unless you're connected...or willing to ignore corporate law.


Devo Ranks eats the *fancy* noodles every day. They have Skillz.


Click for more angles.








Hacking into a Public Service Panopticon? CHILD'S PLAY. 





If you need muscle? Devo Knows A Guy. Or lady, really.



Don't worry, Dez! Those cameras are showing nothing but innocuous looped footage now.




No one pays the cleaners enough in the cyberpunk dystopian future. 




I won't pretend to understand what kind of cyber-heist these three are conducting. 





But you can be sure they have made Powerful Enemies, as well as enough credits to afford the FANCY noodles for the rest of the year!



Devo is a fun one. Gender-ambiguous and tech-savvy. Because cyberpunk is inextricable from the late 80s and early 90s, I gave Devo the most day-glo Nickelodeon counterculture wardrobe I could think of. Dez from Bombshell we have seen before, in the post-apocalyptic Radlands, as well as the little sniper from Crooked Dice. 


The Public Service Panopticonnouncer was made from  SD card placeholders and chunks of expired credit card, along with I think a vape component. The text, like much of the signage on the building, comes from a beer can label artfully chopped into pieces and rearranged into vaguely menacing advertisements. Also some sprue and all the camera-looking Bitz and Gunz in my Bitz Box. 


I don't have any cyberpunk setting or games planned, but I can feel the itch growing. C&C welcome.

Yet again a great setting - love those colors!

My inspiration was partly the disastrous Schumacher Batman & Robin, partly Nickelodeon, and partly Watchmen. I don't know why the Reagan era associated crime with day-glo and neon, but they sure did.

I really love those little illustrated stories!

Great job on the minis and the scenery!

AWESOME stuff man!!!!! Been a massive fan of the genre since seeing Blade Runner as a kid in the early 80's then reading Neuromancer in high school (late 80's). You've done a top notch job here!!!

Many thanks! I think it's the beer can label cuttings providing a lot of the flavor, but I'm glad to be on the right track. I'll have more stories once I pick up and paint that new motorcycle punk. By the bye, the Bones USA was just a delight to paint, no mold lines or flaws to speak of.
