Astronaut Colonists, led by Commander Qol, left Earth to colonize the Asteroid Belt with a group of drone miners to help them find the precious minerals they would need to survive.  One day, on the Asteroid Colony known as 7-9J, something went wrong with the drone's AI, and they attacked their masters' base . . .

The drone miners and their mecha.

Image

The Astronaut Colonists and The Dune Hound.

Image

The drones move into position.

Image

The mecha fires off two missiles into the Astronauts' trench to test their defenses.

Image

While one of the Astronauts jumps out of the way, another is not so lucky.

Image

A medic runs over to the unfortunate Astronaut and tries to revive him.

Image

He ends up removing the Astronaut's helmet; instantly killing him.

Image

One of the Astronauts fires a rocket at a drone.

Image

But the drone is able to the rocket in midair.

Image

This causes the explosion to hit both the Astronaut and the drone.

Image

Meanwhile, Commander Qol opens the hanger bay doors.

Image

The Dune Hound flies into the battle.

Image

With the hanger bay doors open, an Astronaut is able to snipe one of the drones.

Image

Finally, Commander Qol and two other Astronauts head toward the battle.

Image

An overall shot of the battle.

Image

More to come . . .

It appears thers a hollow slot in the doorway, that the doors can be pushed into.

Correct

Here's part two of the battle (I split it up so that you guys don't have to look at 40+ pictures at one time).

The drones move up.

Image

A drone tries to zap his comrade back into action.

Image

While the high voltage zap does cause the drone to reboot, it also has a few unwanted side-effects.

Image

The mecha fires off four more missiles into the Astronaut base to deal with the reinforcements.

Image

Ka-Boom!

Image

The medic tries to revive the other Astronaut.

Image

This time he's successful, well, 95% successful anyway.

Image

The Astronaut who survived the missiles earlier recovers and lunges at the mecha.

Image

"Take that, you son of a motherboard!"

Image

Commander Qol charges toward the battlefield.

Image

An Astronaut takes aim at a drone.

Image

And scores a direct hit.

Image

The Dune Hound gets into attack position.

Image

An overall shot of the battle.

Image

More to come . . .

Sweet hangar! I must say the drones seem a little outnumbered. That mecha better be dead hard, otherwise it's no fair...

Thanks!  The base is actually my Echo Base MOC, but it works great as an asteroid colony too!

As for the drones, well they're supposed to be outnumbered.  The point is that even though they are outnumbered, they have shields, heavy armor, can all work as medics, and can all use their staffs as guns.  Then there's the mecha who can fire off a payload of twelve missiles whenever it wants to.  

Anyway, here's the final part of the battle:

With his one arm, a drone fires an energy blast from his beam staff.

Image

The Astronaut never knew what hit him.

Image

Realizing that the Dune Hound would be in range in moments, the mecha fired off it's last remaining missiles.

Image

And nails the shuttle right in the engines!

Image

"We're going down!"

Image

Ka-boom!

Image

Down but not out, the legless Astronaut puts his jetpack to good use and fires off a missile.

Image

"Massive failure detected."

Image

"New order received. 10, 9, 8."

Image

"Oh what's he gonna' do, count us to death?"

Image

"7, 69, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1."

Image

An overall shot of the battle.

Image

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed the battle!

I agree, very cool.

I like small skirmishes. I don't ever use medics for some reason. I like things that are dead to stay dead.

What about cyborg heroes activating back-up power supplies and coming back alive?

Yea, that makes sense. I haven't used many robots.
