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 :D

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.
Hail Cuntoff!

I think thet they addressed that to an extent - being incarceratedin a dreadnought either drives you insane (Chaos dreadnoughts) or the pilots go into "hibernation" for longer and longer periods of time; having your Chapter led by a load of mechanical narcoleptics isn't much use.

Having said that, there are references to some Chapters who keep Dreadnoughts on as senior officers, at least for a time after their initial incarceration.

:D If Gw had fluff where the dreadnoughts fell asleep during a briefing I would buy more of their stuff.
