  1. ChoK - I don't recall seeing a reply regarding the latest Ayyar in the Haqq Starter box, Is there a price and a waiting list I could consider please?
  2. Hey Cho, how much are you doing the new Haqq Starter's Ayyar please?
  3. The balance looks skewed from my viewpoint. I'd like to see that shoulder mounted monstrosity moved elsewhere, like under the left arm, stored on the pack board, or just dropped onto the base as wreckage. Why didn't they do the mounting point somewhat further up the body of the rifle to give it counterbalance? I think an SMG unit on both arms would go a little way in helping balance out the model.
  4. First I've seen of this update! I have to be honest, I need to go find in the original thread who's supposed to be the Riot Grrl because I can't see it - even the moderator male has more armour than the rest put together! I'm happily surprised that despite the copy-paste dossier they decided to go for two very different poses with the Morlock and Sin Eater - well done! Shame they then duplicated two styles of pose across the other four. Hopefully a better image will do them justice.
  5. If you dislike the Moran models like many, just proxy with a Nomad Spec Ops guy who can temporarily double up for any other sculpt you might be missing during list creation.
  6. With regards to the Druze duo additional model (not the Ltd Ed female Hacker), might I recommend getting the Haqqislam Spec Ops guy instead of one of the Druze models ? He comes with a few additional weapons which you can use for customising any other miniature in the future, plus the model itself is sold with the idea that it can be used as a proxy. I sorta hope they will re-make the Druze on par with the female hacker sculpt and using the Spec Ops for now might be safer if they were to do so.
  7. From my inexperience, I recommend re-reading all the rules to go with your camo troops. You need to make sure that you're aware of all their potential for deployment, movement, modifiers for discovery and shooting etc, and re-camo'ing. Last thing you want is to deploy at your starting zone only to read half way through the game that you had infiltration! If you wanted more information on Van "Z"ant, then there's plenty of stuff via the search option Good luck!
  8. Devil Dogs have AVA of 3 in USARF and AVA of only 1 in Vanilla.
  9. So the new starter box for SAA has me very intrigued. There's a fair bit to be said about the SWC content for a starter box so this thread could probably use suggestions for both proxy options and the wysiwyg approach. My question to the PanO players is, with keeping 'buying efficiency' at its best, where could we be looking to expand upon this particular starter box please?
  10. If they had given the Anaconda to USARF, I'd have one on my order list Probably a lot of opportunities missed if they truly wanted to sell old TAG's.
  11. Read around the forum - it's part of the TAGLINE event thing that's going on for Season 8 ITS It's not just Haqq Vanilla who get Scarface!
  12. Yeah, painting the TAG's tabard white would help to blend it in more for sure. I would also say something around the wrist area wouldn't go amiss to break up the large dark areas (from that rear shot of back/legs/arms). If you didn't want to do that, perhaps a few more highlights around the weapon's handle area to show the wear from being used etc, maybe the feet too if you plan to put them on a dark floor. I really like how you've done your fusiliers with a nice soft blend of colours and that popping beret, great job painting the whites - tough colour to make smooth and solid
  13. I wish there were places in the UK who did 40% off stuff - that would be a miracle in and of itself ! Mind if I ask if that's an online retailer or some local store ?
  14. Now that's a good looking (and efficient) use of the starter pack and additions - thank you! The Spec Ops is definitely a valid inclusion for purchases - I'd think that with the Auxbot from the Peacemaker you could easily re-use them together for the Guarda De Assalto as an example.
  15. You could limit your collection requirements if you wanted to opt for a Limited Insertion style list (single group so approx 10 models). Best options here is to run a Vanilla list giving you access to almost everything - but would require you to run the slightly costlier models in terms of points. You could then pick up some of the nice individual purchases like the new Spetsnaz models, Tankhunter, Col Voronin, Van Zant, Unknown Ranger, Scout etc. Then later on choose whichever sectorial starter you want and add in models appropriately building your Vanilla options and your sectorial beginnings. I've ended up starting a USARF collection but really want to grab some Wulvers, Uxia and the Kazak's I've listed - so spoilt for choices I like that I'll end up mixing them together for a Vanilla list. The downside would be trying to learn the game the hard way with an elite list and limited options, maybe not so advisable
  16. @Stiopa I think you sorta hit the nail there. I appreciate fully where you're coming from and know that down the line my OCD in collecting will probably see me buying most things to allow flexibility. But since I'm already in the middle of that problem with other Sectorials, I've been trying hard to limit myself to minimum and 'wise' purchases Glad to hear that I wouldn't be too out of sorts if using the Father Knight as a proxy until a second Montesa is released. @Lazarus0909 Ah so the Dronbot box gets the better of the recommendations? I'll make a note of that cheers. I'm not a fan of Rem's at all in honesty, but if it pulls together the list, I'm a lot more open to suggestions. Do you guys find that it's quite acceptable to proxy one Rem / bot for another rather than buying every box option?
  17. Thanks for your replies so far @Stiopa When you say 'basic remotes' you mean the Mulebots or ? My concern when reviewing your 'essentials' list is that by the time you add it all up, most of the new starter pack becomes irrelevant. Think I must have over-calculated, but those essentials with a single starter add to around 450+ points... Maybe this is the first time a starter pack isn't the right place to start the sectorial? I'm wondering if a Father Knight might make for a good second Montesa proxy?

    @Audun54 Well done with the match! How did you get on with both of your Spetsnaz profiles in the game? I really like the Shotgun model itself and like to avoid repeating sculpts (so was looking to use as proxy for a second HMG), but it's great to see that this profile does still get use!
  19. I'm thinking the Druze female hacker for the lower half (might need to file all those straps down), and the Barid hacker for the top half, not forgetting the head in a hand from whatever model sports one. Yep, that's what that screams to me... For the one above that, I'd start with the Intruder holding gun vertically, but you'll need to add a lot of gribblies.
  20. On the flip side - I like the Anaconda model and it will be one of those things that draws me closer into the beginnings of a Caledonia collection. I already have my eyes on the Wulvers and Uxia, I own McMurrough and might just get the Anaconda (for a Scarface proxy), it's just a case of what stuff I'd need to fill out the list with for Limited Insertion size that have decent sculpts (ie won't be resculpted anytime soon).
  21. Aye, this was exactly my thought. I picked up Cordelia a while back to proxy for a Najjarun until I could afford the TAG. But I much prefer the Anaconda TAG - besides, it also comes with a good looking pilot model for use elsewhere. I know there's been the odd conversion of Scarface which drastically improved its visual appeal, I might look into these again at some point. I'd also be interested in hearing how welcomed players are in games/events etc whilst using any of the numerous TAG models out there to proxy as Scarface?
  22. Would love to hear how the list ran for you today ! This is totally the sort of list that would have me looking at Bakunin for my next diversion. Did you make it a Limited Insertion list for the rules of the game or just because you wanted to try out such a list for future reference etc?
  23. Having not yet ever looked at the ITS rules or information before, is it possible for someone to kindly link the correct PDF and page number with these rules in please? Would be great to have a valid excuse to purchase either of those TAGs! I understand the current ITS rules PDF for 2016 has a broken link at the moment which, if it's there, might well have contained said rules? Thanks!
  24. If the short term goal is an effective 300pt ITS list - it would help to find out what direction you want to take in terms of models. Since the suggestion of buying everything isn't currently on your plans (but would net you most any list you wanted short of the heavier stuff like Minutemen, Marauders and Blackjacks). Remember that the Army Box, Grunt SWC, a second Foxtrot, Hardcase, Airborne Ranger can get you straight up to 270 points and 5 SWC or so (running FO's and all SWC options). Do you want to purchase all the available bikes and go down that route, or more grunt and foxtrot spam etc, or would you like to run a 5-man fireteam of Marauders since the boxset is hopefully due out soon?
  25. Might have slightly missed reading this thread a bit - was sorta hoping for a hype train summary at some point But then I saw mention of a new TAG... Do we have any idea when the Event pack with the Ltd Ed Tik' TAG will be available for purchase at all please? Or am I still a bit early on such things!
