  1. Yeah, but you don't do construction in Vaudeville... that's not dirt, it's "dirt"...
  2. From looking at their KS page, it appears all U.S. shipments will be bulked to Warsenal, who will then assemble backers' orders and ship them from the U.S.
  3. It's because they're connected to their armor, and the soldier is connected to the military's command system. And Ariandan HI, at their best, is only as mobile (based of the PH ability to Dodge) as the worst of the powers' HI (Wu Ming). The connectedness lets the powers' HI react faster and better. Beyond that, it's not how CB has written their own universe. HI is connected and Hackable, and the HI that isn't, has lower performance.
  4. The soldier is constantly connected to the military command systems, and the armor is constantly connected to the soldier, hence the ability to use skills like Kinematika, Hyperdynamics, etc. Breaking it out into different parts means, again, that you get an Ariadna-style system, which the powers have decided to move beyond. That's the point of them being so advanced, to have systems that take them beyond what normal people can do.
  5. But when the mobility systems are connected to the wearer themselves (commlogs, etc) to provide instantaneous reactions and feedback, how do you then isolate the wearer from web? It's all an interconnected system, and in order to do it, you'd go back to Ariadnan levels of technology, and the powers prefer the speed the advances provide, and accept the risks.
  6. Might there be a level for some of the stretch goals only? While I find all of the products interesting, the only one I'm currently interested (and able) to think about purchasing is the soon-to-be-unlocked Ajax.
  7. And Bostria mentioned on an FB thread that it's not JUST a scaled up Ajax, but a NEW exclusive Ajax sculpt to match the Paradiso artwork, i.e. shouting, holding his hammer across body. So, not JUST upscaled, but exclusive sculpts as well for LUXUMBRA!!!
  8. And Bostria just stated on a FB thread that it's not simply a scaled up Ajax, but rather an Ajax that matches the Paradiso artwork...
  9. OK, 90mm Ajax has my attention...
  10. ¡Santa Maria de los Buenos Aires, ya comenzará!
  11. Well, it DOES go to the Locked state... beyond that, it's a giant metal robot in the future... looking at the Squalo Series, it looks (with a little bit of handwavium) feasible.
  12. A FLGS in the States was quoting $16.50, which the retailer stated was 20% off retail.
  13. Well, the threads are started by whomever starts them, and if one person starts it, then they get to run it...
  14. I think something out of the box for PanO would be interesting, perhaps a TAG? After all, that's sort of the iconic thing for PanO...
  15. Until there's a PanO bust available, no dice for me... or perhaps an ALEPH one...
  16. Well, now that they've clarified (within less than a quarter of a day) that this will be an exclusive with a general to follow on (like the Krakot, and Max->ABH, etc.), can we move on? Or will we now have the monthly 5+ pages of invective back and forth? I vote for moving on!
  17. Well, without the invective, let's think a moment... it's been mentioned several times as a regular release, it's a necessary model, and it's entirely possible, some would even say probable, that this is simply advertising for it, and that it will be available normally... or, we could lose our minds.
  18. Likely. Don't forget, she's been Resurrected multiple times, so that stress likely shows, regardless of body/Lhost...
  19. Well, that's assuming she has the same "uniform" she did as a bootleg...
  20. For anything outside of Limited Insertion, no. If you got to a full ITS tourney, and you bring your single combat group, you're explicitly accepting the risk of getting a command token slammed on you.
  21. Save for nothing has a "fixed" cost, it has a cost according to how it fits the troop, the generic army, any sectorials it might belong to, and the flavor wanted...
  22. PanO and Smoke, outside of the GdA, don' mix. It is what it is. Adding it in when we have such ready access to MSV would be outside of what CB wants. They have a distinct vision of what each faction is, and keep them within those lines...
  23. Not my army, don't have to care, think the outfit makes sense considering what CB has said about the conditions inside a Manned TAG, and will now watch the +/- 5 pages of flame wars.
  24. Something new, that the forums have never lusted after: FAT WULVER!!!
  25. Because then what will the forum clamour for?
