Nexus dossier

21 posts in this topic

Yep, Nexus is lovely. I really like how they combined elements of Unidrons/Ikadrons design with elements of Umbra design.

It is shame that he is only thing he show us for CA. I hope he hide something CA for Adepticon seminar (for example Nexus render).

I like how they combined the elements as well. The combi rifle looks great with the jaw like barrel.

I'll be picking one up just because it does look like an evil Chaksa.

Hm I was hoping for something more unique... I always thought Nexus were another race but that looks very samey to me. Bit of a mix over existing elements, seems a little lazy to me tbh.

I like that the face kind of looks like a jack-o-lantern.

 

Fingers crossed we get the "Dire Foes" thing that was joked about with the USARF Grunt SpecOps v. Nexus Operative SpecOps.

Are the nexus supposed to be biomechanical or whatever like unidron and xeodron etc?

I don't think so, at least not to the same extent.  They have wounds instead of structure, have a cube, and don't have a Ghost skill.

Perhaps they are the race that the TAG and REM models were engineered after?  Then again, I only just started playing and have no clue about most of the fluff.

Maybe.  But dr. Worm is sort of in that area of fuzziness too. He's classed a LI has Wounds not Structure.

Good point.  I wonder what the fluff has to say about the Doc.  I guess the Nexus could be similar then.  Has Dr. Worm had a resculpt yet?  If not, I wonder what they would change.

Well i just went and found the fluff books because it was bugging me haha

The Nexus are like more sophisticated Chaksa: they are a 'tool-species' of the Ur and on their primitive planet, they take young capable individuals and indoctrinate them into expeditionary units.

So, not like Medtechs or unidron haha

Looks like a Rodok helmet to me, I'm guessing they're taking aethetic influence from a range of units!

This nexus is looking great! Can't wait to see the renders and the minis :)

I'll finally stop using my Legate as a proxy... Any idea of when the Nexus could be available? I'm quite new at Corvus Belli and I really don't know how this company works.

Thanks

Soon, CB said that most of the stuff they showed us this weekend will be released before Gencon and Gencon is in the August.

I'm hoping we get the 'washouts' from the Nexus training as some sort of Kuang Shi-like unit in the future. It's implied their training to change them from peace-loving Nexus to hardened military operatives is super brutal. 

As far as the Medchanoids go, I assume that, while they are cloned living tissue with cybernetic parts like the drons, I assume they have more intelligence and a greater latitude for independent thought (while also being completely alien, even moreso than the other Combined races). They take over as your Lt if the first one goes down, after all (which I'll often do if they're well-protected and I find myself in that situation). It makes sense, considering they are highly technically skilled specialists; they'd need more than animal-level intelligence.

I don't think Onyx will get a cheap Kuang Shi like unit in the future. I don't even expect to see a warband in the Onyx. But another Nexus unit would be good addition (I would prefer unit costing between 20-30 points, because Onyx don't have many relatively cheap, but at the same time effective units. Bonus points for fireteam core). 

At least there should be Dire Foe character for Onyx based on the Nexus.

Maybe they aren't super cheap, but an infiltrator with Biolocator would be the shit.
