In the mid 2800s the planet Jericho VII is in turmoil: companies wage war on each other, crime is rampant, and the government was crushed some time ago. In these trying times, citizens hire soldiers to protect or help them. These mercenaries could be from F.I.’s elite army, or the cheater (maybe better) alternative, Bounty Hunters from their Guild. While most contracts didn’t focus on just one individual to collect credits on, the name just stuck at the start of the organization.
At this time, the super-industrial empire Fatius Industries sits at the top of the corporate food chain. No company is brave enough to combat them, so F.I. is the only industrial company. There was one, in the 2820s, that could hold their own. That company was Fountain Co., a weapons manufacturer. Unfortunately, they were crushed in a great war by FI. Their weapons and soldiers were eventually overcame by FI’s seemingly endless supply of forces; worse, was their use of Cyborg super-soldiers.
Now, an Earth based industrial company, Trebuchet Tech, has arrived in system. Their aim: defeat FI and rise to the top. Whether this is for better or worse is unclear, Earth didn’t exactly help when Jericho fell to anarchy. Trebuchet has yet to touch ground in force, they are currently using covert tactics to hurt FI enough they will be weak in an invasion. But their forces aren’t exactly trained in Special Warfare, that’s where the Bounty Hunter’s Guild comes in.
(Sorry about the novel, but my theme needs some serious history.)
Trebuchet Tech contracted the Guild’s best squad, Epsilon Team, to steal some FI troop arrangement intelligence. The plan is to infiltrate one of their corporate HQs, download as much intel as possible, and get out (probably with force). The contract has been designated Operation Blackeye and this is phase I.
The team has four members: Rachael Kingston, ‘Snake’, Shaun Tremp, and Matthew Hawk. After arriving via Pereguin
, the team split up. Rachael and Shaun dropped the others on a landing pad, then parked on top of an office tower. Rachael, the Guilds best marksman, took position on the roof.
After knocking out the FI guard.
…rappelled down. The team is ready for the next phase.==Fourth Wall Commentary==
The full tower section, it only took an hour to build. The next phases will be a bit of time away, as I have a project to work on and the MocAthalon is coming.
This is my favourite section, it reinforces my desire to become an architect.
Kinda blurry, but it shows the side.
The figs: Shaun, Rachael, and the FI Merc who was beaten up by a girl.
The vig started as a way to display a pose I found. It works well for marksman and snipers, but most of my weapons don’t work well enough for it (you’ll se what I mean if you try it out).
I also took this opportunity to change my icon to something a bit more fitting to my nature.
