Ateks yes compared to entire ethnic groups (Yu Jing) or Wulvers and Dog Faces on Ariadna. What's your point?

So instead of being racist PanO is classist. Still not egalitarian. Not to mention the being so genocidal they provoked a species of bloody tunas into terrorism.

And yes, while every release does have a built in opportunity cost, there's no reason why CB can't devote some release time to a female Knight, especially when there are several Knight profiles that need models. As you point out, CB does have limited resources, but they still manage to average around 50 releases a year. There's plenty of room in there for one or two female knights.

 

 

Bullshit.  That would eat into the biker schedule.

I kid.

But I seriously never want to see female knights.

However....and I did mention this a year or so ago I think...  I wouldn't mind a self-contained A-Team style female knight unit proving themselves on their own with some alternate weapon loadouts, like a heavy shotgun, a rocket launcher, etc.  Have them all be named characters too.

No LT model. 

But, give one of them a CoC option to show that while they aren't in charge, they can take charge when/if the need arises.

 

One of them must just be a plain Specialist.  Because I want to see that skill more spreadout.

 

Maybe some kind of female Deathstroke the Terminator....

Much more Pan O style added in.  But NO combat heels (I know, how will you know it's a girl????).  Maybe still have some hair showing.

 

Anyways.

 

Trying to be positive.

Whatever they'll look like, after the Azra'il we can be positively sure they'll be awesome. The question is: when will the Sultanate troops start to arrive? I guess CB will want to introduce more of them at least a few month before Acheron's Fall, so anybody wanting to play the sectorial can do it from the begining. Most likely those will be singular releases, instead of SWC boxes, but you never know. Maghariba, Khawarij, Zhayedan with Breaker Rifle and maybe Halqa SWC box are most likely. There might be some new HI introduced, too.

edit: Moment of revelation about Sultanate starter: 3x Rifle Halqas, Khawarij with Spitfire, new HI, new Camo or AD trooper.

Has it been confirmed anywhere that the Halqa will be in the Sultanate? Because the Mech Deployment, fast reaction force flavour makes them sound very Khanate to me.

I think Stiope made a mistake, because I remember that Bostria said Halqas will be Khanate line infantery. Sultanate will probably use Ghulams and Naffatuns as line infantery.

So...steering this thing back on target, anyone heard anything about Mayacast getting the May release schedule? Don't they normally announce it in the first week or two of the month?

I would actually like some gender reversed bootlegs.

Male Uxia

Female Phoenix

Scarface & Co. swapped

"Raiden" Male Kitsune

Female Tarik

Zoe & PiWell swapped.

Those things would be cool... I think anyways.

That's a neat idea! I would definitely get some genderswapped 'count as' models, but before that I still want a dismounted Asuka, Penny, Zamira, and Zuleyka.

Hey, so I know this isn't exactly about may releases, but since im a bit new here, can anyone point me to where I may find more info on the unreleased Haqq sectorials? Khanate, Caliphate, and Sultanate. Just so I could get an idea of what is to come out soon for them.

You can ask the Haqqislam specific board. But just a quick recap. Gabqar(spelling?) Khanate are the Kum Bikers and other outlaws. And from what I understand, the Al Medinat Caliphate is the real standing army of Haqqislam with super soldiers like Tarik Mansiri and the Khawarji. Also I'm pretty sure the Sultanate runs the Qapu Khalqi.

Again for more detail the Haqqislam Board can help you. Also the Haqqislam section on Data-sphere.net has good chunk of background and lore.

From what I understand the Khanate will get the Halqa as their linkable line infantry, with Kum bikers also confirmed. There was talk about CB playtesting some kind of bike unit with superjump, which started rumours of a hoverbike unit.

The Caliphate will presumably get Ghulams as their basic line infantry, with Khawarijs and Zheyadans part of the sectorial. We've also heard tell of two "supersoldier" units called the Numair and the Mukhtar, but no real details on what they are beyond "making Ajax look like a clumsy ape.".

There is a bit of discussion over which sectorial the Ahl Fassed and Naffatuns will go into. Based on the names, some think the caliphate but based on the fluff, others think the khanate.

I Want peace on Earth to men of good will ...

Surely we want the peace to go to the men without good will

 

I mean, all the people with good will tend to be pretty peaceful already, it's the men of ill will that tend to be the belligerent warlike buggers...

 

On the whole female-knight debate, I would say that the knightly orders are the most likely units fluff-wise to be gender segregated (what with millennia of tradition of doing so), also, I would say that they would be more likely to have armour that doesn't differ between the genders (much like putting a woman in space marine armour).

 

As for wild wishlisting for May, resculpted Riot Grrls, because for one, I would love some boob-armour, not because I feel the need to have equal gender representation depicted through a magnificent pair of metal-clad mamma-jammas, but because it would be nice if my ferocious feminist's funbags we actually protected from gunshots, what with them being in the same general area as the heart and lungs and whatnot

I want all May releases to be sculpts of new units toting combi/rifles. You know, so we have a good proxy straight up for the Zhanying/Govad/Whatever.

And the remaining Pan O TAGs. All of them.

I don't even play the blue faction and I desperately want to see them all released. Firstly because they will look the shiz. Secondly because it is a bit of a farce.

I'd pay for some of those. Scarface being a large, loud, hot-tempered woman with a teenage nerd brother who constantly has to fix the tech she broke in another drunken rage XD

That Scarface story you got there has a lot of merit. I think it would be badass.
