GRNP03 Oggborg Squad (10)
This code is supplied without bases and is supplied unpainted.
The Oggborgs (also known as Cybogs) are battle worn veterans of serious conflict. When an Oggum trooper survives grievous injury, they are sometimes fixed and augmented with crude cybernetic technology of Oggum design. Although this surgery is mostly voluntary, it's usually forced upon the wounded by their warlord's unwillingness to let their favourite lackeys from leaving his retinue. Once an Oggum undergoes such an experiment, most will experience severe psychological changes, even possibly suffering partial or full lobotomisation in the process. Usually these subjects are then reprogrammed solely for battle, wiping out their previous personality for good.
An Ogbot is such an oggborg who has undergone so much cybernetic enhancement that all remnants of their previous life has gone, and are now little more than a machine with a few organic parts, but it is not uncommon for ogbots to have full conscious thought if a fresh undamaged brain was first transplanted into a suitable host machine. Still, not all conversions serve so willingly, and many will resist against control software to enjoy a semi normal existence. Those who have become so mentally damaged may reject everything and turn to the life of a wanderer and all the trappings of freedom. These might find the employ of other warlords, pirates and mercenaries or other groups of outcasts, so an oggborg may be found anywhere in alliance with anyone.
This technology is widely used by most factions, such as the Santyr cult of the Iron legion, or the mighty Og-mech of the golden Imperialists. Even the Okvan scholars and scientists create their brainwashed minions using this tech. The Scrofa tend to shun such things as is not natural, but even oggborg renegades and converts can be found in their number. Even with the erratic malfunctions and glitches inherent in oggum technology, these grizzled warriors are legendary in combat, and should be engaged in battle with great caution.
