    ...curses! I keep forgetting they have changed that. Carry on as before.

    I like throw a Hafza in the link too, either a FO for button pushing or a HRL for that nasty surprise in ARO etc. Personally I would sub out the Spitfire for that, slightly more SWC by cheaper in points..
  3. I give you a +1 purely for the term "combat wedges". I am looking forward to the Wotan Campaign for the Sekban. Before the manga came out I didnt realise their neck things were for Zero-G maneuvers.
  4. Hinges are definitely on the list (along with a couple of light options) but that is definitely something to work on in time. I want to get some practice with what I learn with the Chain Rifle before I get too ahead of myself.
  5. Cheers for that dossier and video @Mob of Blondes Much appreciated.
  6. Thanks to all of you, @BaleWolf, @phototoxin and @jherazob (not sure why not tagging everyone...) I will give Evil Ted a spin as it is something I have never heard of before. As for the @Yashia stuff, I was reading and liking her Specialists Sgt thread earlier today. I am actually liking the idea of the weight for the chainrifle, give it some heft and physical presence. But that might change once I actually have to carry it everywhere
  7. Hey there Infinity peeps, I have recently decided to start a project to make a Yuan Yuan Cosplay suit, as they are my favourite unit in my beloved QK. I fully expect this to taker me a year or so at the least but I want to see it to the end as a great building and learning experience. I am breaking it down into 3 steps as follows Step 1: Chainrifle Step 2: Drop Pack Step 3: Drop Suit This thread will help me document my progress and show off my works. Feel free to provide feedback so I can make it better. Step 1 is currently in the planning/design stage. I am currently trying to design a Chainrifle that I can assemble out of MDF as it has a solid amount of straight lines and a solid look. Basing it on the more modern incarnations (ie Fat Yuan Yuan) I am assuming the Chainrifle to be approximately 60cm long. Does anyone have any more solid info on sizing, I can't seem to find it from any of the books I have, and while I would like to wait for the official gear books to be out from the Kickstarter but also want to get something started to encourage this project and not just let it founder.
  8. Can someone sell me on these Khawarijs? I just can't see myself working them right. I have been spoilt with Ghulams too much to be really wanting to pay 27+ points for a bit of a BS bump and some maneuverability. I could understand if they had Dogged or NWI to represent their super soldier serum and bridge the gap between Regular Soldier and Tarik but as is they seem pretty darn squishy. Please help me understand their place as I really want to find a place for them.
  9. Yes they are.
  10. I am hoping her future flavour text implies that it could be a Hassassin trick to sneak an agent into the ISS.

    I was going to say that is a crazy idea @Agorapocalypse but then reread the rules and thought about it...and I am definitely not against it if only for this part: Sensor also grants its user, automatically and without making Rolls or spending Orders, a +6 MOD to WIP when declaring Discover against Camouflage or TO Camouflage Markers. This combines nicely withh a dose of Triangulated Fire: Allows the user to declare a BS Attack with one of his BS Weapons against a target within LoF by making a BS-3 Roll, ignoring all other applicable MODs (Range, Cover, Special Skills such as Camouflage, TO, ODD...). Makes it that we need to spend orders to discover, but it is a lot easier to make it happen and then take advantage of that Camo model. Doesn't help us for Smoke or Mimitism etc but possibly we could have an MSV2+ alternative, even if it is only at a low AVA.
  12. I think I got a few boxes of 3 models for $6-$8 US from Miniature Market when they were having a sale. Originally were going to be the base of some 40k Centurion conversions that never got started. Honestly still got a bunch left over I will pass on to others who like the concept in my local area.

    Oh I am not leaving QK, it would just be if I decide to expand into the Ramah or not. I have gotten an entire "set" of QK (excepting a Feubach Azzy, some day!) and am only 8 models away from having them all painted up. No way I am forgetting them. Just gotta wait if there is enough to tempt me into going too RTF as well is all. Need something interesting or else I take the plunge and actually paint my USAriadna.

    Did we get any news on the giant bio-engineered troops starting with "N" that will put Ajax to shame? I am currently on a knife edge to increase my QK into RTF as well but I think it will all balance on if they look good (and I guess if they have cool rules too)
  15. Here is a group shot with my Sniper Variants as well.
