Corporate Octan Occupying Knights [C.O.O.K.s]

The Octan Corporation. The long-standing energy company of far-past Earth. What started out as a simple Oil producer, now stands as the galaxy's premier source of alternative fuels, supplying many factions with the energy they need to wage war across the universe.

Sometimes, an unknown source of power comes to their attention in the distant, unexplored reaches of the cosmos. This is where the C.O.O.K.s come in.

Image

Using tech both bought from the factions they supply, alongside ones proprietary to themselves, the Expeditionary Forces have the strength to take and hold whatever power that might come their way.

This is the 2nd Unit, a group made up of both remnants of the 1st, alongside their best recruits.

Image

On the front lines are the Melee Forces: The OctaKnights (Phalanx), Pit Crew (Skirmishers), and their Crew Chief (Size 2 Phalanx)

Image

Supporting from afar are the OctRangers of Green and Red Squads. Green Squad arms themselves against Heavily Armored targets(2x AP Pistols), while Red Squad focuses on long range support (Marksmen). Their Squad Leaders are armed with miniaturized heavy weapon and grenade launching tech (1d6 & 1d10 SN dice). The lead Ranger, Octavian Fett, is a deadly generalist, able to fit in with either squad flawlessly (2d6 & 1d10 SN Dice)

Image

The OctaMech provides medium-weight support and intimidation. Its large stature belies its true Size 3 nature, but its true purpose is to use its Size 2 Gun and Size 3 Melee weapons make mulch of enemy infantry.

Image

Development on this class of Mech are ongoing. It's rumored that Mechanix are working to give it Flight capabilities, but have yet to integrate the system fully.

Image

Octan-1, the pride of the former 1st Unit, and currently the heavy of the 2nd. It acts as a carrier and resupply for a single Octan Starfighter, but it's truly a weapon in it's own right.

Image

The massive cargo doors serve as Size 5 Melee Weapons that only the Hero of the 2nd Unit can properly use.

Image

Vason, former Commander of the 1st Unit, now serves as Hero for the 2nd.

Image

During his time with the 1st Unit, Vason suffered a string of losses. Time and again, even though his armies would win more often than not, he personally would fall. He constantly upgraded his arms and armor, using everything from teleportation caps, to Supernatural Dice, to an ORANGE TRANSPARENT NOVA SWORD AND HELMET. After his last failure in battle, however, he was stripped of the honor of OT, and went back to his original helmet; truly, if even the might of OT tech couldn't save him, perhaps nothing could.

Now, he eschews even the helmet. Going back to the roots of what it means to be a Hero, he has let his hair grow long and his beard go grizzled, and picked up a simple set of beam sabers in his company's colors. As a reminder of his failures, he carries his old Nova Sword's OT CRYSTAL, hoping that perhaps this time, things will be different.

Thanks! While I'm not nearly as talented at making MOCs as most others on this site, I do enjoy making modifications and remixes. Octan-1 is something I like quite a bit: After using a base 60025 to great effect in a BrikWar, I figured buying a second and mixing them together would be even better.

NICE mech, did you design that or is it based off of something else?

The mech is the LEGO Ideas Exo-Suit: https://shop.lego.com/en-US/Exo-Suit-21109

I gave it a few cosmetic changes for Octan colors, but the suit is surprisingly difficult to modify. There are very few outward studs available to attach things to, and much of the mech is made via pin connections anyway, rather than studs.
