Latest AT43 Faction Info


Recently Rackham have released some information about upcoming releases for AT43 first off they have announced the next race will be the Cogs.

 

Rackham have some initial art work and the describe the Cogs as.

 

The civilization designated by this name has not developed as a coherent whole. It is not held together by an sense of belonging. The Cogs do not feel they belong to the same species, race or any other word used by more primative life forms. The Cogs are a relatively loose alliance of four genetic bloodlines. The best and more advanced lineages their original species ever gave birth to. Each bloodline is considered a civilization of its own. They are the closest to what non-cogs generally qualify as a species.”

Slightly reminds me of the Covenant from the Halo Universe where you had multiple races (Grunts Elites etc) forming the Covenant.

    They seem a little bit cephalopodish to me, which is kind of cool. I like the tentacle look as it has not really been done much before and should make them pretty unique. Of course it remains to be seen how well the sculptors can carry off this odd look, but if anyone can do it the Rachkam guys can. They still seem to have the best sculpting team in the industry.

    I don’t see that much of a resemblance to the covenant but then I was never much of a halo fan so it may be lost on me.
