I'm (very slowly) working on a small Karist force. I have a small stylistic question: are all Karists bald? Do they all have a religious mandate to shave their heads, or is it just Kaddar Novas losing their hair from channeling Cybel energy?

Ongoing exposure to na-cybel energy initially causes muscle and bone growth (which is why Shadow Walkers and Tempest Elites are physically larger than regular Troopers, and Novas larger again) but over time also resulting in hair loss and eventually starts wasting their bodies, leaves them looking gaunt and emaciated.

So lower level Karists could potentially have hair, but as they progress through the ranks it would generally either have fallen out or been removed for convenience.

Having said that, while rocking the bald would likely be considered something of a status symbol by Karists at large, there's no reason individual adherents or even entire cells couldn't choose to wear wigs, particularly given Karists' general habit of infiltrating communities on the sly.

With the past year's challenges wreaking havoc with our schedule, it's been a while between releases. We're getting the ball rolling again with something a little different!









This fantastic gun carriage model was made by PDC Gaming for a Kickstarter campaign some years ago. It's a multipart plastic kit, that comes with options for a turreted or fixed-mount weapon, and a range of different weapons that slot into place on either variant.









Although not being sold as a part of the core Maelstrom's Edge range, this kit is useful for those looking for a plastic track unit for conversions, or wanting to add some heavier firepower to their games. For the latter, you can find an unofficial rules card for the Epirian 'Thunderbolt' sentry drone in our Force Lists section here, or included in the PDF download in the Rules section here.









The gun carriage is available from the Maelstrom's Edge webstore now!



And stay tuned for an upcoming conversion article from Iain, using one of these carriages and parts from the Epirian Hunter war mech to build an all-plastic Epirian Automated Uplink Relay.

Did you guys buy up old stock or have a new batch produced?

I thought those were long gone.

They're actually still around, quietly selling these in a 6-pack on their eBay store. I came across them by accident, and thought they would be really, really handy for conversions, and so reached out to them. The price on the MEdge store works out fairly similar to their eBay price per unit, but without having to them in bundles of 6!

Me too! Although I had only just got around to putting my Kickstarter one together a few weeks back, to use as a Rapier for old-Necromunda.

Nice! Very useful as heavy weapons or security drones (for a very, very aggressive security posture).

$8.50 is a good price for them too. Maybe after the backlog has shrunk a bit more.

I recalled they had some useful looking gun sprues as well, any chance of those appearing?

I had just had a conversation recently with some other members about those very guns, and how we all lamented not seeing any more from them.

Good to see them again.

Didn't know they were on eBay either. Hmmmm.....

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

They have two gun sprues - a sprue of multi-option heavy weapons, and a sprue of not-bolters and combi-bolters. The heavy weapons in particular could be potentially useful for MEdge, so we're looking at them as a possibility if the gun carriages do well.

Within the Epirian Foundation, many Contractor militia units make use of specialised bots for some extra firepower or to fill battlefield support roles. We introduced the resin weapon drones to boost your Contractor teams on the table a while back, and this week we're adding to your options with a new support drone kit!









This resin kit is comprised of a Support Drone chassis, and optional parts to equip it to join any of three different Contractor unit types. The Recon Package is the standard gear for support drones utilised by Contractor Scout units. Contractor Engineers make use of tool-equipped drones to effect repairs on other damaged bots, while medical drones in Contractor Medic units patch up the force's less hardy human elements.

The support drone is available now from the Maelstrom's Edge Webstore!








Also, don't forget to check out our upcoming StackaRack paint rack Kickstarter - You can find the details here.

I’m tempted to get one to use as a futuristic MALP for a homebrew SG team for Shadows of Brimstone.
