I kinda hate designing Alchemicals, it's a pain in the ass. So I tend to go the more-armored route.
This is sort of an in-between of Cog's two primary loadouts - one being very, very human (few visible charms), and one being extremely robotic.
I borrowed a bit from my original design of Adju, since that design didn't fit Adju at all. So Cog inherited his hair, visor, and facial markings. Probably body markings as well.
And yes, I DO have a love for spinal armor, thanks for asking.
