Many thanks for posting that guys, can't wait for this!

Any news on what retailers are going to be carrying the pre-order as they did for the N3 release?


Probably anywhere that stocks Infinity I'd imagine. Element probably will.

I'm not feeling the energy. We've already seen the Father Knight in that exact pose, everything else on that particular cover it seems as it went through Deus Ex/Mass Effect intro filter. However I think we had this discussion when N3 was first shown. I do like PanOceania will be on one of the covers of Human Sphere. I expected Aleph or Nomads.

I hope for some interesting additions to PanOceania. Otherwise it will continue to be terrible game experience, as my current meta continues to revolve around camo-msv2/smoke gimmicks.

... And you're having issues playing enough TO and msv2 in PanO? Now if it's MO specifically you're having issues with I could see the point.

Yeah, if you have issues to counter smoke / MSV2 combos with PanO you're doing something blatantly wrong. Especially if you know that your meta relies on these gimmicks.

I knew people are going to simply say MSV 2 magically solves problems (against Nomads/Aleph/Combined you'll have to be careful for white noise combo as well). If opponent is going to camp his MSV model it's going to be very hard to assassinate it on the first turn. For this reason I'm looking forward to Locust, they're going to be great at adding on the pressure and forcing my opponent to cover more angles, leaving potentially more room for an AD, Forward deployment, or infiltrating unit to remove it.

Going second normally means I need to deploy everything outside of a LoF of a MSV model as otherwise it's going to get removed. Although I must admit that the table is part of the problem, sparse table gives power to such combo. It's much easier to handle such combo with more terrain on it. Still, doesn't help when all tables are taken.

Anyway, PM or open a new topic, if you want to discuss it further.

Father Knight gets more skills.

LE is Druze/Merc with killer hacking device.

Ha, I knew when I saw the LE model on the table something would happen to it. I thought he was going to drop the N3 rulebook on it the way he was fumbling with it. At least he only dropped it a short distance.

I wonder if we're getting new Druze models? That's a significant redesign, and the base is entirely different.

I doubt it, the Druze look fine (awesome, actually) and as mercs a bit of individuality isn't too out of place. Plus I think her leg armour is exactly the same still (well, very similar).

Right behind you.

Courtesy of Cervantes screenshotting from the 2nd video:










They gave us a 'sampling' of new profiles for each Sectorial, not all with profiles. Bandits got stated to have a "Killer Hacking Device" profile, the Kanren got previewed for ISS, Tikbalang for ASA is stated to be April/May-ish and does come an Uhlan as well. That's kinda annoying--unless he was trying to say it's 2 models or builds 2 variants.

Stiopa hooked me up with a link, here's the Blackfriar Dossier:

The Bakunin Swast look really cool, I'm a huge fan of the big S5 HI. In fact, HI in general tend to be my favourite models, I like how a lot of the new stuff is heavy infantry.

Oh yeah, and take into account the AVA numbers on the profile pages are all for vanilla not their respective Sectorials.

AVA 1 becomes AVA2, AVA2 becomes 4 in most cases.
Tohaa and characters are naturally exempt from that.

New JSA HI, sound sweet. I like this new Duo rule.

The Guardian Rule is a cool addition.

New Bashi concept looks great.

So much hype!

Yeah the Shikami confused me for a half a second, AVA 1 but fire team duo, before it clicked it was the vanilla AVA (and then Bostria said as much haha).

Interesting profiles. I'm guessing Voronin is S4 due to his Antipode buddy. Weird that the Antipode doesn't get statted or mentioned though

I'm very curious about those Taskmasters. I'm guessing that they're going to be like the Azra'il with their heavy power armors. Can't wait to see them.

The Druze girl looks really good. Her design isn't actually that different from the existing Druze. She just has a jacket instead of the aemor over the arms. I guess CB are going to sucker me into preordering, because I really want that figure.

That's kind of what I figured. He'll probably be sort of like a Tinbot or something. I'm just surprised that it doesn't really affect his stats in any other way or even have its own. Hell, the dog doesn't even really count as a piece of equipment.

Well, this looks nice.



Although the profiles for black friars were leaked and many found them rather plain, I think they're going to be useful.

Hassassin Ayyars sound fun. I like the Shock Marksman profile a lot. I wonder why the sniper doesn't get Surprise Shot L2? It's got a Holoprojector. I wonder what Free Agent is?

It's sad that the prfile we're sneaked for Aleph is yet another Steel Phalanx character. Human Sphere introduced the entirety of Aleph, lets see some new Vedic units.

In the video Bostria said Free Agent allows that model to swap from one combat group to another without expending a Command token.

There isn't a profile there that doesn't make me want to start that army (except Aleph).
Not they they're super powerful, just neat, adding something new to their sectorals.
Looking forward to seeing all the new HI in particular (not that we'll get minis for all of this right away).
