And the fuerbach isn't really a good proxy for anything. Which is weird because it's a relatively new model.

OK, stupid question incoming:

I'm looking at the N4 rulebook now, and it seems to be two books labelled "Core Book" and "Rulebook". What exactly does that mean? Does the N4 book include the rules for CodeOne, or do I need to buy the CodeOne book separately if I want a dead tree version of the rules?

Sorry if the answer is obvious but the book description on their webstore does not include these details.

You would need to buy a printed version of Code One separately. The Core Book contains fluff for the background, the factions and troop types. Rule Book contains the rules for the normal Infinity game.

As is CB. Apparently the ship has not left the port in China.

It seems CB is planning a Christmas themed LE mini in December.

Four TAGs. presented as gifs because that's what I found

Blue Wolf- Awesome TAG


Cutter a nice TAG, but not Blue Wolf nice.


Sphinx


Zeta


My dislike for the 0-12 faction aesthetic continues.

Is that the Zeta rear?

Marvelous minis except the Zeta.
Blue Wolf is sublime, Cutter is not much behind, the Sphinx is nice although the design it's too similar to other Shasvastii.
IMO the Zeta is a complete miss, too much mass in the upper body, hexagon shoulders and hand HRMC is just strange and
not fitting.

Yeah the Zeta is the only one I’m disappointed with. Parts of the design are good but the overall result and the pose are strange.

Is the blue wolf remote or piloted?

Piloted, you can tell by the little human arms poking out of its chest.

Durp, thanks! I didn't see that on mobile and should have zoomed in more. Also, my eyes were naturally drawn to the claw, lol.

I don't know. Saying that the Blue Wolf, with it's oversized novelty wolf head and mascot costume sized torso, looks okay but the Zeta's too bulky just seems weird.

Right behind you.

The Zeta is too bulky.

But we've known that would be the case. Zeta looks like it's something concepted for Overwatch or a MOBA styled game, to be frank. It's not helped by the paint scheme one bit either--especially the toy-ish look of the blue on the 'minigun'.

The Blue Wolf might be a bit big but it's also piloted rather than Remote Presence like the other three.

Personal picks:
Cutter & Sphinx are the top two of the TAG bunch. Cutter ekes it out a bit over the Sphinx being a fairly nice redesign of the aging sculpt.

The blue yiff is too goofy to be taken seriously. The cutter and sphinx are fantastic.
Zeta skipped leg day something awful, almost looks Khadoran in proportions.

The combat fur-suit is a bit goofy but it comes together perfectly and works.

The Cutter is a practical but ultimately common humanoid robot.

The Sphinx isn’t any better than the Cutter for concept (giant shasvastii gwailos/heavy infantry) but the non-human start point makes it unique and interesting by comparison. That said I hope I can leave the back mounted... gun? Off.

The Zeta needed shoulders that actually fit with the rest of the design and either much shorter barrels, the gun replacing the hand, or a standard rifle grip for the gun. The greave mount it has just doesn’t buy it anything.

Personally I think it is just an issue with the posing of the Zeta.

I am hoping there is enough pieces that I can do some reposing.

It’s a sword on the Sphinxes’ back.

The Blue Wolf works for me but it's a close line to being silly and I don't know if it's the paintjob that elevated it or if it the sculoptor and concept artist managed to actually pull it off. Probably a little of both.

The Zeta looked way better from behind. But I've really disliked the O12 designs so far.

Right behind you.

The Blue Wolf works because the 'animal' parts aren't just jammed on there. The headplate looks like it could just be painted a matte color and no big issue is to be had--but the 'wolfhead' details are just paint. It's something that you can take or leave as you see fit.

The least effective part of the Blue Wolf is the triple 'lightning claw' going on.

I think I agree. The claw is what my brain was stuck on as not working. It feels like it was just "jammed" on the model.

I will say that I feel the claw works better than a sword would have.

Given CB's propensity for impractical and unique poses it looks really bland to have all 4 in basically the same pose.

Well... TheJotum is the hockey goalie TAG. To me, it's a nice tie-in to have the other TAG from Svalarheim have a few hockey goalie elements. The wolf head, especially the way it is shaped, reminds me of a goalie's mask, at least a certain style of one. And we all know goalies customize their masks with interesting paint schemes.

It feels kind of shamanic/totemic for me, personally.

I do wish they had gone for a quadruped personally. Maghariba cannot remain the only item with a specific silhouette. It's just wasteful.
