New Druze Shock Teams?

73 posts in this topic

Hello!

So it looks like we're getting new Druzes and with new guns!

Marksman Rifle, HMG... Maybe even Viral Pistol (?)

I wonder if those are bonus options for those existing. And if they get some changes in their profiles.

I just put together my old Druze minis and even converted some and would be a bit unhappy to see them going to waste. Maybe the new ones are going to be the line infantry of Mercenary Army?

What do you think? Or what do you know? ;)

The Haqq HMG is so much nicer than the Nomad one...

the dude holding the chaincolt and aiming down the sights seems really counter intuitive and even looks awkward... it fires a cloud of flechettes or whatever... not something you aim down sights for surely

The guy on the right? I thought it would be a pistol rather than a chain colt. Viral pistol the profile states...

Yeah the guy on the right. If you look at the dossier and then the pistol the guy is holding, it looks identical to the chain colt in the dossier

Nomad HMG a sign that Druze are Nomad/Haqq based?

Perhaps we'll see them in Tunguska.

I would hope not.

 

Nomads don't like Druze. Druze are commonly in the employ of MagnaObra, the company that basically incited the Helicon Riots.

In any regards, if you look at the guns?

-Nomad HMG

-Haqq Shock Marksman Rifle

-Haqq Viral Pistol

-Nomad Chain Colt

-Ariadnan Panzerfaust(we just recently saw it revealed with the Grunt SpecOps)

That's two factions that actively go after Druze(Nomads and Ariadnans both--PanO and YJ both employ Druze mercenaries on Dawn as a provocation method towards the Ariadnans) having their guns there...and we know Druze aren't above scrounging the battlefield dead, fluffwise.

They're nasty folk and have no qualms about taking trophies.

 

I would hope, however, that this means we'll see YJ and PanO able to take Druze.

That's the same Panzerfaust as Nomads (take a look at a Jaguar). So it's a mix of Haqq and Nomad equipment (TBH I think PzrFausts are faction independent like Chain Rifles).

I'd have no issues about allowing AVA2 Druze (with Duo) in both Vanilla PanO and YJ. Keep the core for QK. On the whole I think expanding access to Mercs is a good thing.

I'd like to see AVA2/4 Druze (w/ Duo) in Tunguska. Because they're nasty folk, and Tunguska is run by nasty folk who have no qualms about doing dirty shit. If anything the fact that Druze have an ambiguous history with Nomads is a plus in selling this vibe (Business is business and sometimes we're in the business of war crimes: that's why we keep contacts with the Druze).

OTOH I agree that it doesn't fit Vanilla Nomads (I get the impression that the Corregidor elements are more likely to kill them to send a message 'don't fuck with us' than work with them).

If anything, I think that expanding access to Mercs is a good thing...but Kaplan need a bit more limitations. I think taking Druze or Scarface should immediately remove the KTS from your choices.

I wouldn't. I'd rather see KTS available there, since again...Nomads hate the Druze.

 

Or you know, Van Orton Military Contracts units...

Does this new dossier suggest that we'll be losing the LGL+X-Visor profile?

As I've written earlier, I think that those are bonus options - it's definitely not like completely new set that deletes the old ones - there's no normal combi for example (which the hacker seems to have). I hope that we will still have the LGL + Combi and the Spitfire options.

And the guy in the right has Chain Colt. Viral pistols are a bit different, you can compare the Ayyar Viral Pistols with old Sekban with Chain Colt:

I don't really like the new models. They're very dull poses and the chain colt guy looks really awkward. New weapon options are cool though.

I've been waiting for new Druze, but the two guys on either end are looking really awkward. Hopefully it's just the angle ...

Has the hacker got a combi or a nomad boarding shotgun? Hard to tell. It's definitely none of the weapons on the dossier, I'm guessing the dossier is just there to show new options they're getting.

I'd bet on the BSG, current Nomad combi looks a bit different I think.

Still, seems interesting. ...damn, the last of the old Druze is sitting in the WIP box since January waiting for an Aleph BSG bit to come around...

The nubs on the top of his gun look like a pitcher to me...

Man they look awesome.

If Bostria said they want Druze to work like in the manga I'm all over them. As soon as I finished reading it I wanted modern sculpts of them.

The Ltd Ed one that came with HSN3 is probably my favourite infinity mini, a full force of them would be amazing. Especially with a non-Scarface light TAG. even a resculpt of Scarface would do, it's weird we've got 4(?) pilot sculpts now and almost everyone can take him but it's still the old sculpt.

New Druze profiles in the Outrage mission pack. If those become official then Druze are my new favorite link team.

Far from it. These profiles are what Bolts would like to be :-D

 

I'm still not sure if these profiles will remain the new official Druze.

The new profile was posted on the Haqq FB group from Outrage and it is absolutely brutal if these are the changes going live. Hackers have Pitchers, HMG can be in a haris to have B5 DMG 16 HMG, Veteran L1, Fatality L1, Paramedic option, Light Grenade Launcher with E/M ammo, LT option, Viral Pistols and Chain Colts everywhere! I am absolutly giddy to give the new Druze a try.

"We are bad people, but we can be worse." has never sounded so true.

The Boarding Shotgun / EM Grenades profile is gone, though.

Now, I'd say I believe the loadouts will be there. Otherwise we wouldn't be seeing the renders of a new Druze box (with the HMG, Marksman Rifle, Hacker and ChainColt). Thank you lucky stars I didn't managed to get that conversion bit for a shotgunner then. 

Whether we'll get the exact equipment loadouts as for the Outrage missions, and whether the Druze are going to get Veteran L1 & Fatality L1, I don't really know. Surely the QK would love to get some boost, but I believe we don't really need it.

Though a Specialist Operative Bashi Bazouk is a nice idea :)
