    “The VIACONS are a long lived race of techno-organic beings that reside on the sentient world of VIACON 1. Recently emerging from a millennia long war that decimated much of their population and leveled their once great cities-the Viacons seek to rebuild their Empire and restore it to its former glory. During the Great Viaconian Wars, much of their population were scattered across the quadrant, existing in small pockets of lawless outposts throughout the system. In the new order, the Viacon Republic and its Senate, have sought to reunite all Viaconians back into the fold. However, an ancient enemy, long thought extinct and only spoken of in myth, has made a silent return. Cloaked in secrecy, the Tecrom have infiltrated parts of the Senate and have begun undermining the foundation of its rule. The few who are aware of the threat have formed a clandestine resistance-systematically recruiting into their ranks, those who posses unique qualities that will aid them in their struggle to expose and ultimately drive out the Tecrom."

    Hi Everyone,

    I just wanted to stop by and show off a new character I dreamt up by the name of Tempest. The first of several characters I created, she's part of a universe I developed which revolves around a techno organic world that’s been infected by a sentient virus. However in the spirit of not boring people to death-below is a short bio.

    NAME: Tempest
    AFFLILIATION: Viacon Resistance
    POSITION: Femacon Clandestine Operative

    [​IMG]
    TEMPEST BIO:
    Tempest is a savvy seductress of the Viacon resistance. She is a charter member of an elite counter-intelligence group known as the "Femacons." As a deep cover clandestine operative, she is charged with the task of attaining vital information from the Tecrom inner circle by "any" means necessary. Her motto, "I always get what I want and sometimes I leave them wanting more."

    I'm a big fan of Fembots and wanted a female lead in my story and since I dabble in some digital modeling I thought, hey what the heck, lets build one. As I'm not well versed in designing non-organic characters I really wanted to know what you guys think, so if you don't mind sharing your thoughts, please comment or take the small poll I've set up above. As you can see, she's a nod to another character, but I always design characters that stand alone. Hope you guys like her. Thanks!!

    BTW I apologize for the lack of paint. I'm not a painter, so if any of you customizers want to paint the print, hit me up maybe we can meet if your local to So. Cal. Orange County. You can see a digital walk around of her on shapeways via the link below. Cheers!!

    I dig it, it has that G1 Chromia flavor which works for me on that mold.

    Hey Tecrom, does the blaster peg into the ports? Also can you make a two blaster version?

    Nice! Kinda hard to see the detail of the print though. maybe if you give it a light grey spray to bring out the details

    Looks good from what I can see, but it is hard to make out details from that print.

    I really like how the head looks. It's reminiscent of Kup, which gives her instant gravitas.

    Looks nice. I think you should look at printing some smaller wings for her to differentiate her from the Prime Arcee, really make her a new character.

    I wish I had the skills to pull off something like that.

    Love the idea. :)  I'm really starting to get a Chromia vibe in this. I may get an extra RID Arcee and do this while giving her a different paint job.

    So is she an Autobot or Decepticon?

    The guns were only design to fit her hands and subseqently the peg in her forearms. Here's a link to a double blaster version

    Tempest Full Set for RID by TecromDesigns on Shapeways

    I'll try to get to it.

    Thats a really cool idea, but I think I'll have to leave it up to the customizers to take care of that. Digital work takes alot of time and effort. There's tons of trial and error to get the right fit, as I have to rely on measurents to translate them digitally. I wanted to create entirely new bodies for them, but that'd be next to impossible for me right now. Besides, my focus is on getting the story out and these models are for folks- hopefully like yourself, to become excited about. But if you just like the heads and accessories for what they are, thats fine too-just so that there's something for everyone. BTW I'll be posting new models here on the Radicons section AND on the Fan Art Section under "Tecrom Designs Shapeways thread"

    It looks very good. Perfect for the extra Arcee I have that inadvertently lost her head after I gave her blade to my first Arcee.
