Ouroboros: Zer0 Company

Postby Omniscient Frog » Mon Aug 20, 2018 8:34 pm

This is an idea I've been playing around with for a while now. Initially, First Company was meant to be my "ace group," the best of the best in the Simulacrum. But after building the whole squad and some other frames not currently in companies, most of First Company was starting to feel kind of lackluster. Most of their frames are very similar to one another, with only the squad leader having a "custom" frame.

Thus I present Zer0 Company, the true elite of the Simulacrum, their operations known only to the Masked Man himself. Its members are granted highly customized frames -- dubbed "Apeirogons"-- to suit their individual styles of combat.

Since I'm currently low on parts (specifically Travis bricks and ALL OF MY RED CLIPS), all I have to show for my efforts is a Stud.io render, bUT SOON. SOON THEY SHALL RISE.

Without further ado, I present the first Apeirogon of Zer0 Company: OBS-06.1 Apeirogon Magus!

The Magus is optimized for power redirection, overflowing with Infinity fuel ports, which can be channeled into massive energy blasts for long range offense or bursts of speed. Eventual loadout will be d6W d6W d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra d6G d6G

More frames to come, and hopefully actual bricks eventually.

Nice to see someone else using the 4 clips on a T-Piece trick. Can't wait to see it in the brick when you get the parts.

Thanks! I think I have an unhealthy obsession with red vertical clips :P

That trick is indeed very handy, it allows the two sets of arms to look very seamlessly integrated!

After some deliberating, I think I've figured out what loadouts I want in this company. With that decided, I've begun brainstorming more Aperiogons.

Introducing Zer0 Company's next member: OBS-06.2 Apeirogon Aegis

The Aegis is a combat support frame, sporting d6W d6W d6Y d6Y d6B d6B d8G to provide tactical advantages for the rest of its team. The Aegis is also loaded down with additional small Infinity fuel canisters, which can be administered to nearby allies in need of resupply (this doesn't do anything in-game, it's just fluff).

Nice use of tooth plates, they make such an interesting texture in this configuration!

Had a bit of a creative outburst today, so here's the results of that:

Keeping watch from on high, this frame glides across the battlefield, seeing all, and guiding its allies to a swift obliteration of the enemy. Introducing OBS-06.3 Apeirogon Sage!
ImageApeirogon Sage Render by Omniscient Frog, on Flickr

With a loadout of d6W d6W d6Y d6Y d6G d6G d8Rr d8Rr d8Rr d8G , the Sage is mostly a support frame, but it can get its hands dirty with its Single Shot Rockets if need be.
(I seem to have a habit of stacking all my rockets on one frame. huh.)


BONUS: Fresh from the factory, the OBS-06.1 Apeirogon Magus is fully equipped and ready for battle!
ImageApeirogon Magus Full Loadout by Omniscient Frog, on Flickr

I decided on some big glow-y railguns for its artillery weapons, and added some even glowier energy wings for a double movement system (each pair is 1 system). I picture them less as actual wings and more as just excess energy output from its thrusters (sort of like the Gundam 00 Raiser with its big particle streams).

That's all for now. Two more to go and I'll have the full team. Then there's just the matter of actually ordering all the bricks for them and... paying for said bricks :cry:

Apparently I should have waited until my daily creativity was actually done before posting those last two, because I went and cranked out another.

Heavily armed and heavily armored, odds are it'll cleave your frame in two before you can land a hit. Without ado, OBS-06.4 Apeirogon Pharaoh:
ImageApeirogon Pharaoh Render by Omniscient Frog, on Flickr

Loadout is d6W d6W d6Rh d6Rh d8Rh d6B d6B d8G , with the blue dice coming from its weird energy skirt/coat thingy and just general armored-ness. Whoever pilots this thing clearly has a bit of an ego, given all the flashy gold plating.

Ah well, four down, one to go!

Woah, those sweet Stud.io 2.0 renders, I'm still not used to them!

Great used of those CCBS parts as shields on the Pharaoh!

You are on such a spree of madness, its fantastic. Not since the Lockons by Vitor Faria and further back still Gattinggouf's Zeon inspired builds have I so wanted to face a particular company on the table top.

Oh I'm just waiting for a chance to unleash these guys.
That is, assuming I can get them bricked in any reasonable amount of time :P

...yeaaahhhhh, I don't think almost 11 months qualifies as a "reasonable amount of time" :lol:

But, without any further ado, I FINALLY got the parts to complete my first (zeroth?) proper MFZ company!

Now I just need to find a game happening anywhere remotely near southern Wisconsin :?
