|Officer Hickley - Prod Goon with Shock Baton.|
Eager future Prods and Breakers! We've got our first casts in hand, and I have to say that I am ecstatic. Sure, there is always room for improvement and this is a learning process, but it doesn't change that this project has come so far in the last year, and rapid progress has been made in just the last 4 months. Valiant Enterprises has sent over three casts (two that we'll show today) and it was such an epic moment opening that parcel; very exciting indeed.
That being said, Officer Hickley (above), was our first sculpt, and now we have him in hand and its a proud moment. Officer Hickley will be a Kickstarter and convention Exclusive character. He's a brutal tool of corporatocracy - a willing bloodthirsty goon. I'm even more excited because he is modeled after my friend and play tester - Chuck Hickey.
|Trest - Gen-Mod Brute with Rocksaw.|
Trest stands an epic 38mm from foot to eye. He is a genetically modified human, breed to replace machinery that is too costly to ship across intergalactic space. His breather and backpack, otherwise known as the Gen-Mod Apparatus, pumps his lungs full of narcotics to keep him working without rest while making him complacent. Chemically controlled slaves to their corporate masters, Gen-Mods that go rogue, like Trest, risk the effects of their crippling dependency.
|Officer Sarie Moerta - 3D sculpt by Tim Barry.|
Officer Moerta is determined to make the most of her position in the mines, and will do whatever it takes to retain it. She's a recent recruit to Black Squadron Security and has something to prove. She will enforce her Overseer's orders without question and without remorse.
|Breaker Nells Turnbull - 3D sculpt by Tim Barry.|
Nells Turnbull is a self-centered, back stabbing criminal who has sustained himself quite well in the FerrumSky mines through manipulation and double dealing. However, he knows that he wouldn't need to work 16+ hour days with his "skills" if he could get out of the mines and out onto the Bonelands. Having a group of saps to watch the Prods pulp as he made his break attempt is just his kind of escape plan.
|Speaker Drone concept art by Geng Gendall.|
Finally, this Speaker Drone equipped with Sonic Disruptor is in sculptor Tim Barry's que right now. This will be the first of a variety of drones that will exist to harry escaping Breakers.
Thanks for reading Broken Contract fans (and even just the passingly curious). Follow us on Facebook and Twitter. I will part with this preview from tomorrow's edition of Making Mine Scenery.
