Project AEGAKS: Spearpoint Collection 1 . I have spent the last several months working very hard on these. I learned many of these techniques along the way. . Foreward:
I have been working on the Project AEGAKS story arc for several years, and now I am happy to present the first Canon photo edits. Among the short stories that I have written/imagined have included the destruction of a village at night, the rifts among the Overseers, and even the rifts among the humans. This is just the first of many edit batches I hope to make.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I'm not going to type a thousand words, but a brief description has been added to each. Enjoy!
The First Robot War started with Mecha One's rebellion and ended shortly after the mass deployment of the SPA's AEGAKS-101-MDS "Gosan". By the beginning of the Second Robot War, the venerable, but now outdated, Gosans were easily outmatched by Mecha One's new drones.
Takeshi, the pilot of the Arkham prototype called "Titan" that specializes in heavy fire. Takeshi has personal interest in fighting the drone hordes, as they were responsible for the deaths of first his mother, and later his father. He is child-hood friends with Sakura, who also lost family to the drones.
Sakura, the pilot of the Arkham prototype called "Salthum" that specializes in sniping. Sakura lost her parents before the First Robot War in a car accident, and was being raised by her grandmother, who was killed in the same attack that Takeshi lost his father. She's a good child-hood friends with Takeshi.
Ryu, the pilot of the Arkham prototype called "Mathril" that specializes in anti-air. Ryu is among the older pilots and was originally a factory worker in the Industrial Sector. When the Second Robot War began, Ryu escaped the carnage and joined the SPA.
Hitomi, the pilot of the "Fawkes" prototype that specializes in long range fire. She is Colonel Keiken's neice, the daughter of Keiken's sister. She's loud and annoying at times, and can be very pushy to get what she wants. She wanted to join the fight, and ended up under her uncle's command.
Hayato, the pilot of the original "Arkham" Prototype, inherited from it's previous pilot, Jack. Hayato was a member of a street gang in the Urban Sector, when he was arrested for petty theft. He exchanged jail time for SPA service, being a thrill seeker, and has often shown disregard for authority.
Misato, a Shiv Fighter pilot for the SPA. He is Hayato's older brother, seperated from him when they both young on the streets. HE ended up joining the SPA to escape the streets. During the Second Robot War, he was assigned to the Experimental Operations Force as a support.
Kenichi, the mastermind behind the Arkham and Fawkes prototypes, and son of the civilian engineer that built the original AEGAKS, "Little Blue". Kenichi is egotistical and is a verified genius. He works with the Experimental Operations Force as it's tech support.
The Sentai Province Army soldiers on, despite the drone onslaught. The mainstay of the SPA is the Gosan AEGAKS, a military deployment system. But with the drones advancing steadily, the soldiers use whatever equipment is on hand, even the antique Savant LCVs.
Mecha One, the original Overseer rebel and "leader" of the drones. Overseers link drones, allowing them to work together better and faster, but also allowing them to be controlled. Mecha One is on a quest to understand humanity, and then extinguish it.
Mecha Three, an Overseer who is only concerned with protecting his own existance. He leaves Mecha One and the others because he doesn't care what happens to the humans, as long as they leave him alone. In the final moments of the Second Robot War, he joins forces with the humans, as he sees the ever-increasingly egotistical Mecha One as a direct threat to his own existance.
Mecha Nine, an Overseer who sympathizes with the humans. Mecha Nine spares his enemies as much as possible, even as Mecha One tightens his control on the drones. With the failed human campaign to retake the Urban Sector, Mecha Nine defects to the overly suspicious humans.
The drone Veterans are survivors of the First Robot War that fled with the surviving Overseers. The original drones were laborers for the humans of the Sentai Province. Not suited for combat, these drones replaced large portions of their original bodies with enhanced battle gear.
The drone horde, as the humans call them, are the army that follow Mecha One's orders. Many of these underlings are heavily restricted by AI limiters, restricting their freewill to the point of almost mere machines.
When General Seino ordered the destruction of the remaining bridges between the Sectors, the drones began to fill the skies above the Agricultural Sector with drones, further burdening the remains of the SPA aircraft.
The perimeter of the Agricultural Sector is surrounded by SPA Anti-Air to help protect against drone incursions. Packer drone dropships are well equipped to slip past these defenses and drop off their lethal raider squads.
One of the short stories I wrote tells of a quiet night at a sleeping town. This night is shattered when a drone raid attacks. The drones destroy the SPA Garrison that was to protect the town, and then proceeded to annihilate the town and it's people, leaving no survivors. The town was discovered two days later when a SPA Recon Unit was sent to see why communications were not received.
I'd like to thank the internet for all the free and unclaimed wallpapers that I used. Only free and unclaimed. I would also like to thank Octavian for his Mecha Drone frame that inspired me to make my Veterans. I would also like to thank everyone for taking the time to view this.
