  1. No, Kazaks are coming beofre MRRF and Kazaks are actually almost done, if not already done. MRRF is...not, sadly, to put it as nicely as I can. MRRF have been slated for the next book, so hopefully they get the work that they deserve for being postponed this long.
  2. All of the GenCon products there already have the "pre-order" models, so don't worry about that I'll be at GenCon too, so I'll see you there, comrade!
  3. tactica

    Yeah, I really doubt we'll see any major changes to anything Ramah (that's currently out) or Hassassins related for a while.
  4. Aye, from first edition, but was mentioned to have X-visors. Not sure where the Zero-G came from Shown in a little comic, the one on the first page here, but that's all. They're a complete secret otherwise. Then again, that was first edition and when they were only S2, so who knows?
  5. Here's my entry on them from my Kazak tactica Hopefully it helps some! Standard (25, 0): Comes with an adhesive launcher, an AP rifle and d-charges; a classic kit for wreaking havoc. Glue down what you can’t kill with the rifle, run up and then plant d-charges. Sure, it's only 4-2 and can easily be overshadowed by the heavier options, but it's still a great tool kit for getting missions accomplished and defending an area. This is a terrific loadout for its price and something any enemy of the Kazaks should fear. AP HMG (35, 1.5): Probably one of the best choice for an AP HMG and even an affordable version, especially when compared to the Veteran Kazak and the. Plus, the Tankhunter has Surprise Shot Lv. 1, which the Veteran Kazak does not have the pleasure of using. It’s an excellent and powerful choice for any list if you need more HMG, d-charges, and AP ammo or don't want to pay for a Veteran. Really this option shines in Nimbus zone when the Autocannon isn't going to be much help or whenever else you know you're going to be doing some armor hunting, but you need some burst rather than power. One thing to note, though, is that for 3 points more you can get a Spetsnaz HMG which is far superior to the Tankhunter AP HMG, until you’re shooting against ARM 5 +. If you know you’re going up against quite a bit of heavy armor and aren’t already packing anti-armor somewhere else, then this is the option for you! Portable Autocannon (34, 1.5): A unique weapon in Infinity that’s a beautiful mistress of destruction. If you know you need some heavy armor demolished, then take this option and I promise you won’t regret it. Burst two, AP + EXP ammo types for a potential 6 wounds on whatever with half of its armor and heavy penalties to react back, thanks to camouflage. Someone thinks they're going to sneak up your flank and there's a lonely camo marker, they probably think, "Oh, it's just some cheap whatever, it can't do anything to my armored behemoth". You reveal this beautiful gun and watch as terror consumes your opponent's face. Definitely stopped a few flank attacks myself with this piece and destroyed a few T.A.G.s, too. However, it is worth noting that the AP HMG is the superior Active Turn piece and the Missile Launcher is the superior ARO piece, but the autocannon is the nice middleman between them. Missile Launcher (29, 1.5): A cheap and effective missile launcher option. This is probably one of the best places to put the missile launcher with the Tankhunters incredible ability to stay alive and stay cool under fire; however, this loadout is the only one that doesn’t have d-charges sadly. This is one of TAK’s BEST ARO pieces and even one of Vanilla Ariadna’s best ARO pieces too. It’s even good on the offensive, if you don’t mind risking a single shot, but it’s got a bit longer rangeband than a HMG and the like, so you can easily outrange targets. It’s still got the AP + EXP, DAM 15 shot of the autocannon in ARO, or you can swap out for the EXP template, DAM 14 shot to really mess with any clusters of opponents that come around. I used to see the autocannon as one of the best ARO pieces, since it was burst 2, when needed, but nope. ML is definitely better. You just can’t beat a weapon that can easily outrange the typical HMG rangeband and that can alternate firing modes on the fly, given your target. It’s also a great option for taking out TR bots and any friends it has hiding behind it. Lieutenant (25, 1): The same as the standard loadout, but it’s a Lt. and costs one SWC. This is actually one of the best Kazak Lt. options. They can make short work out of any rascals who are trying to stomp around in your Deployment Zone, or blow up any d-charges your troops have deployed, all with your Lt. Order. Laugh at my 4-2 lieutenant, I'll laugh at your TAG when it's glued down, after you failed an assassination run! The 1 SWC is a bit of a steep price to pay, but it can definitely be worth it, at times.
  6. I've done this and revealed a few ninjas and Oniwabans; it s was great. Then I proceeded to eat them with the Antipodes (just kidding the Ninja killed two members of the pack by its self and then remained engage with the third one that was Immobilized). They were not pleased when they found out Antipodes could do that. I was very pleased
  7. Why would they hide something new for Haqq, while PanO gets reworked profiles and Nomads get an entirely new troop? If they didn't hide them, I doubt they'd hide whatever Haqq is getting. Plus, what other 50+ point thing would we be getting instead of Tarik? It weird to be weird to have a picture of Tarik up there with a Hassassin motto, so I bet they just subbed in some other Hassassin silhouette to distract us and fit the theme. If you look, it appears almost as though the right-most one is from the Muyib dossier.
  8. Good to know Laz and I aren't the only ones who think this is possible Sounds like we need to get in touch with the TO for GenCon and see how they'll rule it, as there's no consistent ruling yet.
  9. OOC: I knooooow! He did a really great job on the flag, I totally thought it was a real thing made by CB, until I realized it wasn't, ha ha.
  10. It breaks my heart to see one of my most trusted comrade go rogue like this. You were like a brother to me, Jandrus, but I do not fault you for your actions. You do what you believe is best, just like a true Ariadnan. We will not pursue you nor attempt to quarantine you, but we are saddened by your actions and words. Fly free, comrade. I wish you and your brothers the best of luck. May you bring down the CA when all others have failed. (OOC: Oh man, this is so freaking cool! Good on you for doing something unique and cool, Jandrus. Hopefully CB makes mention of it in the fluff and I hope others take up your mantle. Also, that's such a great movie)
  11. All in all, it goes to show that no one really knows what's going on with these points right now, ha ha. I'll see if I can get a clear answer out of BoW or Carlos, but I doubt it.
  12. As an aside, I did a kind of rough estimate on calculating campaign points and this is how I did it: You get one point for each zone you own in the end of each Phase and you get one point for each objective you've completed (Bostria informed me that secret objectives were worth the same as controlling zones, as I am the faction liaison and asked him). Since no one has completed their own objectives, this is how I counted up the points: PanO - 4Nomads - 3Ariadna - 3Haqqislam - 3Yu Jing - 2Tohaa - 1ALEPH - 0Combined Army - 0 I asked Bostria to confirm this a day ago and still haven't heard back from him. In fact, the campaign is still anyone's game. No need for defeatism yet
  13. *shrug* I'm not really a fan of Twinkies. I personally really enjoy those Cosmic Brownies, those are great!
  14. I guess you all understand why we're attacking PanO now, eh?
  15. As faction liaison for Ariadna and one of five High Commanders of our forces within Wotan, I would like to provide my support to Vanther; a true comrade and ally. The Combined Army is a threat, but with allies like him and the Tohaa, humanity will stand a chance. Thank you for your service, comrade. All of Ariadna wishes you the best as we go forward.
