The starter pack Maverick can't be a FO (no shotgun FO option) if you say that about the binoculars neither of the Marauders that sport them can be FOs, the foxtrot might be but he just has the radio that basically all other ariadna models sport on their bacpack

Read that bit again:
The Dismounted Maverick.

She didn't have a shotgun, she just has binoculars. The binoculars that she has are different to the ones the Marauders are rocking(which are supposed to be their MSV).
When the USARF Army Pack was showcased, Bostria explicitly called out the Ranger as "the first FO model".
The dismounted Maverick as well was mentioned to be chosen so that "players could have a second FO Foxtrot if they wanted".

Ahm.... "Bostria said" "Bostria said".
Lately, every time I read a forum and someone defends his point he uses the "Bostria said" card.



May I ask for a link to the video where Bostria specifically says that the Pre-order USARF Maverick figure dismounts the bike, thows away the shotgun and magically becomes the Forward Observer option, please?

I think it is a misunderstanding of a few things back then, discussing that Maveriks had the profile to be FO and do fast objectives even enter the objective room when dismounted, that the box had a maveric model in and that the preorder had a dismounted maverik model as a bonus that could be used for the dismounted profile and by extension for the FO option.

That way,then left

While I appreciate you guys agreeing with me, I think that arguing with Kan is ... Precarious.
It seems natural that the dismounted mini that comes in the box with a mounted mini is supposed to represent that same profile, but it's not as clear apparently

This is part of the amateurish way CB does it's marketing. Nothing is ever written anywhere, you have to dig through some unknown podcasts, forum posts or youtube videos.

As usual, this thread devolves into complaining about the delivery of news, and CB’s business model.

Can we get images of new releases? Bunch of new renders came out this week.
Puppet master & troupe. Zondnautica. Speculo Killer. More Aleph guys with robots.

Not too enthusiastic about new Shas so far

What’s the story with Kit Kokram?
Will that be a new profile for IA?

Description says he is an engineer.

No, they operate independently. Don't have rules handy, pretty sure they become G: Sync.

This is the Hacker profile, only. Weird that they gave the rider the Chain Rifle as it's part of the bike, not a weapon for the rider. Rider has a Boarding Shotgun as it's meant to be the Hacker.

Who is Krit Kokram? He’s a combat engineer, specialist, and a leader always at the vanguard of the Zúyŏng Invincibles. This is what his military record says. But, apart from this record, little to no information can be found on him. This is Krit Kokram nowadays, a Zúyŏng specialist who shares with a dead man the fascination with big guns and the thuggish demeanor of the Thai gangsters from Batta Racha.


And correct he is a new profile for IA and Yu Jing in general profile will be available with the miniatures release.

Correct they are G:Synchronised the chainrifle is part of the bike so when together the Zontnaut can use it, the Zontnaut illustrated is the spitfire version, not the hacker.

I was super confused when I first saw the mini without the name. No reason it couldn’t be Tai Sheng with the two pistols.
Except I’m pretty sure I read Tai Sheng is going to be a woman?

Tai Sheng is a woman, yes. There’s a theory that Krit exists because the sculptor didn’t get the memo about Tai being female, which is plausible based on previous sculpting guffaws.

I wonder how that rumour happened? in any case krit was just not ready in time for the army profiles, the sculpt already has his 3 pistols.

‘Rumour’ as in speculation that is plausible. He has the same pistols as Tai, just an extra heavy one (which wouldn’t be hard to add).

I wouldn’t believe it if we hadn’t had things like the Seraph being changed from S6 to S7 because it was sculpted too big...

Thanks. I didn't notice until reading your quote that autocorrect really went to town on zondnautica.
