I'd love to see more of this sort of stuff. I'd also like a view of a horribly mutilated 'victim' with lots of life support kit.
Dark Age has a model a bit like that.
I suppose my influence on the surgical aspect is the Cybermen.
That concept is used by GW in their 40K Dreadnoughts as well. I wish Princess Cuntoff was too
Speaking of the 40K Dreadnoughts, I always thought that it was a missed opportunity (unless they've already done it and I missed it) that since Dreadnought pilots are not altered or conditioned in the same way as Cybermen but are effectively, the same person with their original personality wired up to the machine, to have a character who was a general that suffered horrific injuries but survived and was encased in the Dreadnought but still lead from the front as a general as he had previously done.
Some of the hero characters have pretty over the top stats so it shouldn't really be a problem to have one who was a Dreadnought general (although I suppose there's someone somewhere who would say this fucks with the established fluff too much.)
In the meantime though, Princess Cuntoff sweeps through the Universe, ravaging it like a zombie strap-on hooker on bath salts.
