  1. With Varuna we could see a nice amount of new loadouts/new troops, and Helots seem like an interesting platform that could add something unique to PanO... maybe something similar to Kuang Shi? Or to Chaksa but with unprecedented loadouts for PanO? We never saw anything about helots, am I correct? No illustration, no sketch, no phisical description?
  2. If dossiers are a hint on future releases, we already know what to expect in the next months: -Hospitallier box -Jean -Bagh-Mari HMG -Orcs (maybe not, as together with the Kamau their dossiers may be shown just to tease Varuna, so are not due for a while) -Trauma Doc is long ovedue, her dossier was one of the first to be shown in the early N3 era if I'm not mistaken, so a double blister of Machinist-Trauma Doc or a new support box is to be expected, imo, soon™. - Locust (dossier in the works, apparently) - Guarda de Assalto resculpt seems to be upon us, even without a proper dossier shown So... while Auxilia are no doubt a unit in need of a makeover, I'm not expecting them to be remade in this year... maybe at some point in the next.
  3. I can understand Viral ammo being a no-no for PanO... but K1 and Mono are both already in Aleph, so I don't really see any reason they should not appear on SINGULAR, peculiar PanO profiles... I mean, I would love to see a unit in charge of field-testing new or exotic weapons, maybe snatched from alien hands in Paradiso, maybe retro-engineered... I'm thinking AVA 1-2 max in sectorial, but that adds a bit of flavor for the right price... Actually... being Bolts veterans but also well-known daredevils... A Bolt character that has scavanged an alien weapon and added it to his personal arsenal wouldn't be a bad idea... at least for me. That would also be an impicit boost to Bolts. Such possibilities are one of the reasons why I'm enjoing my CSUs in Neoterra, metachemistry, that is...
  4. Actually, I don't really like Aleph presence being so pervasive in sectorials. Devas and Garudas fit nicely with the Neoterra concept, while Nagas, Scylla and Teucer, in my opinion, are a bit of a stretch, even more so if you consider that Nagas are the only proper infiltrating/camo unit in the guerrilla-themed army of Acon, and Teucer is the only MSV2 unit (...not to mention Feuerbach and K1 sniper, where all the other units seem to lack anti-armor capability) in a sub- faction that revolves around good tech to minimize threats. I understand that it represents, in game design, PanO's complete symbiosis and dependance with the AI as it's described in the fluff... but whe in crucial roles such as board control Aleph units are really our only choice... well, it kinda leaves a bad taste in my mouth. In NCA, somehow, this is less evident and better balanced.
  5. Quoted for truth. Besides, I was under the impression that the real missed opportunity for a HI Engineer was the Santiago, that together with the Teutons is just screaming for an utility upgrade of any kind. I see the FK as an assault piece first and foremost, capable of taking punishment and leading from the front line, possibly in Coordinated Order. As such, a ML option would rarely be taken as a solo rampaging hulk and I feel is wasted on ARO duty, but can offer nice synergies with, for instance, Nimbus Grenades, expecially against a linkteam, forcing some hard ARO decisions on your foe.
  6. Oh, I know, but shouldn't they come in pairs? If was just some silly wishful thinking on my part
  7. Is it wrong for me to hope they will look like this?
  8. So the stairs and platforms under the objective room are probably something that we'll see in the future? Sweet, I fell in love with them and I really want to get a set of those.
  9. I guess Hexas could fit in that role, fluff-wise.
  10. That... or it's just the Hac-Tao hacker Killing some time in the wait...
  11. Wow, a Croc with BS, I did not see THAT coming... Check out those sweet tattoos!
