Cernovich by Oscar Falk, on Flickr

Cybernetic implants enhance their users' abilities with anything from x-ray vision and heightened reflexes, to immense strength and increased cognitive functioning. Lobot gear, on the other hand, use a living brain to achieve enhanced computing power, leaving the subject reduced to a mindless automaton.

What kind of advantage does a lobot have to a conventional computer? Some say that lobots are more creative when solving problems, others that lobots have an edge considering emotional aspects when analyzing data. Lobots are seen as extremely safe, since they are impervious to hacking (but also fragile, since data recovery is impossible if the lobot ceases to live).

The lobot known as Cernovich worked for Far Trader Molox Blot, following her wherever she went, attending every meeting she held, always subtly consulting her. Rumour said that Cernovich was the true architect behind Molox Blot's massive financial gains. Earlier, Blot had been a low level trader, close to financial ruin. Soon after 'aquiring' Cernovich, she had made a string of good deals, landing her enough credits to pay for a Far Trader charter. Ever since, Molox Blot had been synonymous with 'great business'.

Cernovich and Molox Blot worked together for the rest of her (prolonged) life. After Blot's unexpected demise, every single heir flocked to her asteroid estate, only to find Cernovich and Blot's fortune missing. Where Cernovich has gone, no-one knows - but Blot's stellar yatch 'Ray of Light' was found abandoned at Perelandra Starport. Records show that a massive cargo hauler, 'The Salvation of Io', left for Golgotha Prime shortly after the 'Ray of Light' docked, carrying Crusty refugees and an unidentified human passenger with extensive cybernetic gear...

Awwwww yeah! Does this mean the move went well? Or are these the pre-move pictures that had not been posted? Either way, good to have you back!

Thanks, friends! Your kind words warm my hobbyist heart!

I'm not back yet, we're moving in ten days. There's a lot of packing going on, but I had (almost) the entire story written back in March and took some photos back in November.

If I find time, there might be more stories coming!

It's a command figure from Ground Zero Games Islamic Federation range, Dan!

Happy to help, Dan!

Thank you, Skully!

I love bright colours, and these two weren't meant to be a pair, but they have a common palette (snakebite leather, heavy goldbrown, shadow grey).

Super work my friend.
Thanks for showing us your latest work.

Dan
If you're after a " Lawrence of Arabia" vibe, then you should look at the other IF packs as they're all
great especially the bearded ones.

He also doubles as a not Dengar on my 15mm Star Wars board.
