By the time Terra Nova was inventing and testing cybernetic limbs the Sar had already put it to some use in areas like construction. Eventually the military was given free use of the technology, and after an engineer designed limbs specifically for military use all soldiers were required to have some of their limbs replaced. Some even had their entire bodies replaced, but that's for another page.
I've had these done for awhile, but I just now felt like I was ready to post them. They're still not completely done, but I don't mind.
Commandos are the standard shock trooper of the Sar. Their arms are replaced by cybernetic replacements. They're trained in mid and close range combat, being equipped with a wrist laser, energy shield, 4 wrist rockets, and 4 implosion grenades.
Their armor is an alloy of two metals found in abundance in the Sar system, especially Sar III. It can withstand both bullet and laser shots up to a point at which its alloy is broken and the entire piece needs to be reforged.
Pilots are trained in vehicular combat and specialized combat medication (although all soldiers are trained some in medication). Their legs and lower spine are replaced by cybernetic replacements designed to limit damage that a pilot can face with long hours standing or sitting at a vehicle's controls.
All soldiers are trained in the use of the standard Sar hybrid rifle, but the pilots are the ones that use it most. It has a bayonet, folding stock and optional various scopes and underslung grenade launchers.
Their sniper is designed only to fire laser rounds, though solid variants exist, especially as anti-material rifles. The scope is mounted on the side to easily allow aiming with a helmet on and to make a smaller profile when aiming over cover.
Officers are given different colored pauldrons depending on their rank; yellow, red, or green. Lower ranking officers command the troops themselves while pauldroned troops either command from the rear or take off their pauldrons in order not to be specifically targeted.
Artem: The top of a minifig's hand is the same size as a regular LEGO stud. You just turn the hand sideways and stick the dish on there. Knightly Nik: Erm... did you check the credits for my Nova Refuge comics? If you will do so, you'll see that those characters were originally his. Anyway, Artyr, nice job! I don't believe I've seen the whole set together before. Nice decal gradients. They actually seem like they fit better in Nova Refuge to me now somehow, though that's one expensive army with cyborg limbs on everyone. Anyway, nice job! They look schweet.
