Specifically it sounds like its once again the bottle-neck at the design end that's causing delays. Bostria said that at this point they should be doing design work for the Kazaks, but they're still working on the Caledonians. It makes me wonder if any of the other factions are having similar problems.

Yeah he mentioned it as a general issue. Hopefully the new concept artist they had a job ad for not too long ago helps speed things up a bit.

I'm loving the new Caledonia starter.

Caledonia really needed some new sculpts, especially the Mormaer. I actually laughed the first time I saw the old sculpt due to how tiny and delicate he was compared to the current lineup. 

The old Mormaer (well the AP HMG anyway) is a great sculpt but yeah, it's so, so small.

The female Airborne is fantastic. She's what they should aspire to in female models; looking as close as possible to the male variant rather than emphasizing the "BOOBS!" like they did with the female Maverick and Grunts.

This. The hype is real for new USARF stuff! I love the female models so much (for scots too) and will def be picking up the Minutemen and the new Ranger.Need to get my backlog of painting done before this stuff comes out though...

Also Gen Con talk, you all think they will do another USARF model for the limited edition release, as they have the past 2 years? What would it be this year???

I would cry if that was the case. Or ask one of you to pick me one up.

I am so impressed by all of them. The drop trooper with molotok is fantastic.

I just love that Airborne Ranger with the Molotok but damn is she a lot of points! Is there any part of her profile I am missing that puts her on the level of the equally priced Tiger Spitfire?

Well, Molotoks are better than Spitfires against anything with arm greater than 3, and only worse than Spitfires vs arm of 2 or 1(which will still be murdered very fast).

If you want to get a Spitfire up the field with minimal order investment, its a good choice.

The AP on the molotok is pretty forgettable, until you start taking on TAGs the mimetism of the tiger is better, and even then against ARM 6 tags the tiger has better odds of inflicting at least 1 wound.

And access to a profile that's 11 points less, still has AP, can also use shock, and is a specialist kinda undermines the value of the molotok as an AP weapon.

Really it's the CC and the fact 4-2 nets MI a slight discount.

Only worse than the Spitfire against ARM 0 or 1, and against that sort of target DAM 13 burst 4 should be plenty, the Molotok is much better against TAGs which is something USARF can struggle with. One of the best all around weapons in the game IMO.

If you could, would you trade that for mimetism, better BS, Better ARM, Better WIP and 2 levels of better AD? Like I get that it's in the context of the whole faction and so on, but that is a very high buy in and the Tiger is clearly a better use of 32 points. Have you used the profile?

No but thats not an option is it. And like saod above for pasting mi hi and tags the motolok just gets better and better the more valuable the target is. Thats what your really paying for.

Stealth can be very handy when you're locked into a drop zone, CC22 with MA2 is also very very competent.

Obviously I'd usually prefer to have a Tiger Soldier but almost all factions would prefer them, I'd also like to have Nisses, Ikadron Batroids, Makaul, Irmandinos, Noctifers, Ghazi, Netrods, and Spetsnaz, but they're not an option for USARF.

Enough about the points. Look at the shinies! Do we have release dates?

Not yet, but everything shown as a render should be out this year, with a good chance for most of it by Gencon. 

Of course this is subject to Bostriolling.
