Crescent Combat Cache

"Forbidden Flavours of Destruction. The Crescent Combat Cache locked away the most potent weapons of each class. Power developed for the sake of power, resources poured in with reckless disregard. Previously unseen testaments of technology's darkest hour, weapons hidden in the Cache should have seen their last moment of daylight eons ago.

Surfacing one by one, the mark of the Crescent can save those who find it. How many lives must be sacrificed in return, can only be a direct function of the discoverer's discipline. The power of the Cache can be tempting, the few who do resist it use their new weapon to wipe out its brethren.
"


Weapons for Transformers, released on Shapeways. The Crescent Combat Cache will feature a variety of weapons, updating as more are discovered. Each weapon has its relevant specs listed beneath its description, including what handle it uses and the size of the weapon, among other things. More photographs of each weapon can be found in its Photobucket Gallery and each weapon can be purchased at its Shapeways Page, linked at the end of the weapon's entry.


Renders of forthcoming weapons can be found at the Crescent Combat Cache Fan Art thread

---------------------------------------

Autostrike Blaster

Image
ImageImage

"Point-and-shoot. The Autostrike Blaster fires continuously, only needing its trigger held down. Its large body contains a plentiful energy supply, sustaining its lethal spray of shots. 6 barrels channel energy into small shots. The small barrel diameter created high-density projectiles which didn't break apart on impact, being worn down gradually as they ripped through enemy internals. Battlefield testing reported a long-lasting weapon with a high rate of fire and significant damage output, held back only by small entry wounds and relative inaccuracy."

Specs:

-5mm Handle
-8.3mm free space in front of Handle
-5.25cm long

Crash Cannon

Image
ImageImage

"Callous power. The Crash Cannon fires large energy bolts which explode on impact for extra damage. The weapon's bulk is devoted to accelerating energy projectiles, leaving concentrated and condensed energy supplies visible along the Crash Cannon's body. Twin blades mounted on the front of the Crash Cannon compensate for its high energy consumption. In a pinch, the weapon can stab enemies, resulting in a deep gash and a chance for a point-blank shot. Battlefield testing reported high levels of power, though a reliance on limited supplies of condensed, concentrated energy made it impractical for long campaigns."

Specs:

-5mm Handle
-7.8mm free space in front of Handle
-Up to 11.5mm free space in front of Handle (width of 4.3mm)
-4.3cm long (Cannon Body)
-5.4cm long (to tips of Blades)

Diva Blaster

Image
ImageImage

"Swift destruction. The Diva Blaster fires alternating shots from its two barrels, painting arcs of bolts. Used for rapid-fire, this weapon's exposed cables transferred energy throughout its body at any angle, perfect for shooting on the go. Fast, accurate shooting required minimal weight. The Diva Blaster packed only two bladed pieces of armour, along with an obligatory hand guard. Battlefield testing reported a weapon which could cope with fast, agile users, though its bladed armour was more for show than actual warfare."

Specs:

-5mm Handle
-8.5mm free space in front of Handle
-5.2cm long

Diva Pistols

Image
ImageImage

"Twins to die for. The Diva Pistols fire independent bursts in rapid succession. Each shot left a trail in mid-air, hiding the next. Used together, the Diva Pistols could match the Diva Blaster's rate of fire. Their smaller designs kept energy supplies accessible to the firing mechanisms at any angle without exposed cables. The trade-off was for weaker shots than the Diva Blaster, conserving energy supplies and giving each shot its signature trail. The Diva Pistols came with three armour spikes for close-range engagements. Battlefield testing reported flexibility beyond the norm for ranged weapons and a successful three-clawed strike at close range, though the shorter barrels sacrificed the accuracy of the already limited shots."

Specs:

-5mm Handle
-6.3mm free space in front of Handle
-3.85cm long (to end of Barrel)
-4.3cm long (to tip of upper Spike)

Kestrel Cleanser

Image
ImageImage

"Defined divinity. The Kestral Cleanser fired single blasts of condensed energy through its tapered barrel with lethal force. Each blast's density provided significant knockback upon impact, adding to the damage from each hit. Behind the tapered barrel, the weapon's entire bulk was devoted to storing energy with minimal weight to sustain its high energy blasts. The Kestral Cleanser carried almost no armour beyond its structural shell, relying on the weapon's power and moderate rate of fire to repel enemies. Battlefield testing reported a weapon that could neutralise enemies in one shot, though its moderate rate of fire left it vulnerable to swarm tactics."

Specs:

-5mm Handle
-6.1mm free space in front of handle
-5.67cm long
-3mm bar (under Barrel, front)

Additional Features:

-3x Handles (Left, Right, Top) for HG 1/144 Gundam Kits
-Adapter (XComponent, socket)

Kestrel Talons

Image
ImageImage

"Defined divinity, made sharper. The Kestral Talons fired up with energy, leaving a burning trail with each blade. Each slash seared metal around its wound, burning cables on its way through the victim. Behind the three blades resides the weapon's energy reserves, disguised as a hand guard. The Kestral Talons carried no armour beyond the hand guard, relying on its blades to block enemy attacks. Battlefield testing reported a weapon whose energy supplies provided remarkable cutting ability, though its small energy reserves left it dependent on a Kestrel Cleanser for refueling."

Specs:

-5mm Handle
-5.6mm free space in front of handle
-5.58mm long (handle to tip of blade)
-3mm clip

Additional Features:

-Handle for HG 1/144 Gundam Kits
-Adapter (X Component, jack)

Neutron Breaker

Image
ImageImage

"Precision demolition. The Neutron Blaster fires uncharged energy for targeted destruction. Each shot remained solid upon impact, aiming to strike internals and compromise structural integrity. The weapon's own structure served to counter itself, containing a heavily contorted firing mechanism. The supposed barrel of the weapon contained nothing, only the muzzle was real. The rest of the Neutron Blaster's bulk was comprised of armour over its actual firing mechanism, further disguised as secondary firearms on the weapon's side. Battlefield testing reported a long-lasting weapon with excellent demolition capabilities, though its weight and slow rate of fire left it more effective against slow-moving opponents."

Specs:

-5mm Handle
-7.6mm free space in front of handle
-4.8cm long
-3mm bar (horizontal, above and behind barrel)

Additional Features:

-Interchangeable Handle for HG 1/144 Gundam Kits
-Can attach to HG 1/144 AGE-2's chest

Shock Fangs

Image
ImageImage

"Dangerous conduct. The Shock Fangs fire nothing but electricity, conjuring orbs at distance and burning wires up close. Conjured orbs have a medium range, discharging on impact through the victim's frame; close range stabbing delivered the shock directly. The weapon's own frame consisted of 4 highly conductive blades concealing another blade in the center. The epitome of offense used as defense, the Shock Fangs packs only 4 thin armour plates, reducing weight at all costs. Battlefield testing reported a cruel medium range weapon that only became merciless up close, though the slow speed of its conjured orbs left the weapon considerably weakened at long range."

Specs:

-5mm Handle
-11.1mm free space in front of handle
-5.94mm long

Additional Features:

-2x Handles (Left, Right) for HG 1/144 Gundam Kits
-4x Adapter (X Component, jack)

Heh, thanks. Normal Vehicon is doing the photoshoot for the weapons of the Crescent Combat Cache. Other figures can be seen wielding weapons in their respective Photobucket Galleries and Facebook Albums, including FOC Kickback and AM Frenzy, among others.
