What's a Karkata and when did the Marut get one? is this a mistake? I mean if not then Marut has a mini specialist following it. which means it can do objectives and with WIP 15 there's a good chance of that happening. Alos means possibly a new model? (damn I just got the current model).

if this been mentioned before just point me at the right chat.

I just caught up with tag line. Never mind. Still, what do people think? does this make the Marut more viable to you?

Marut was perfectly viable before, kept taking it regularly. :) So this just makes it sweeter :D

I looked up Karkata because I was curious about the name, and it's the 4th sign in Indian astrology, equivalent to Cancer in the Zodiac. Thought that was quite funny what with the Crabbot in Pan-O.

Thanks for sharing!  I love when they do clever things like that.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the model looks like. I figure like normal ALEPH REM but Silhouette: 1 cute?

Probably similar to a yudbot I imagine

The Yudbot is already a chibi version of the Marut :P

My god, it's going to be glorious. If it is, I'm getting multiple to use as Flamers for my Neoterra when I use Devas 8D

I wonder if they're going to release a model or if it's going to just be there until at some point in the far, far, far future they again look at non-Phalanx ALEPH... :(

As an aside I really want a blister/special/bootleg release with every single chibi mini out there :D

We'll probably have to see the success of TAGLINE, and in particular the sales of the other pilots, to see if we get a special Karkata. But until then a Yudbot will do the job.

I don't think so. We already know that CB will release soon another batch of pilots (Gorgos, Gecko pilots) and we also saw sniper shot of something that looks like REM.

This one:

So I personally expect to see Karkata and Staldron soon, because they will be last two missing pilots models (I hope we will see them in April).

Perhaps they will do a Dire Foe style "vs" pack with the Karkata and the Staldron battling it out for a new HVT mini.

Perhaps a Tohaa HVT... killing three birds with the one release.

They put out 3 pilots in February and 2 more in March.  It seems likely they'll keep it up and put out the last few soonish.

Marut has always been viable as Aleph is fast, and has a LOT of good Infil Specialists. You could use most orders on the Marut first turn and still be able to get a specialist on an objective if you really wanted to. It is an interesting addition, but I got a Naga, or Dasyu, or Mk2 whose already at the objective. The marut is put to better use suppressing with MSV2, or eliminating key threats.

Sure, it's a nice addition, but not needed for the Marut. However the Geckos and other 'bad' TAGs suddenly got a lot more viable with these changes.

I'd say in N2 they were certainly over-costed, but the N3 version is pretty good.
