Warhammer Assault!

Hello all,

This time we see the CGL Warhammer blazing away at a poor Thunderbolt!

I’ve had the discussion with Tex several times about reconciling the many different versions of a mech. The basic idea we came up with is the ‘local contractors” concept. These chassis see non-stop combat for hundreds of years over thousands of warzones. Logic would assume that there’d be various military contractors vying for maintenance contracts. Thus, a contractor would do refits, restorations, maintenance, and overhauls from parts they could source locally; and this doesn’t take into account battlefield and merc tech fiddling. In this way a Warhammer traveling with a mercenary outfit might look completely different from one used for a planetary garrison. Disregarding a mech of Theseus situation, the Warhammers might have only a few surviving components in common. 

I think this is a tidy excuse for using whatever art we see fit for an episode; and I can play with all the designs. 

More Warhammer coming soon!

Dream Pod 9 gets technical with the Druid golem.

Hello all,

Dream Pod 9 released the 3D model for the Druid golem today. This is New Eden’s technical golem. It can bash stuff with that big claw or repair its allies with an extensive array of tools.

Check out the original article here! https://www.dp9.com/2022/04/19/druid-golem-3d-model-preview/

I don’t know which reveal is next. We’ll find out together.

All the best,

DP9 shows off the Warlock Gold 3d model.

Hello all,

Dream Pod 9 has released the 3D model teaser for the Warlock electronic warfare golem. Honestly, I wasn’t sold on the dish head during the development. But, admittedly, I like it now. It really pulls off the Buddhist monk look; espeically with that silly staff.

You can read the original article here.

I think the Druid golem will be the next reveal. We will see.

All the best,
