    With the upcoming Pavel, strelock shotgun and Rosy Releases we are approaching the completion of TAK!


    Possible releases

    RATNIK 2 Molotoks, 2 Panzerfausts / Heavy Pistol, Trench-hammer, Knife. (2 | 54)
    VETERAN KAZAK (X Visor) T2 Rifle, Light Flamethrower / Heavy Pistol, Knife. (0 | 38)
    VETERAN KAZAK (Fireteam: Duo) Mk12, Light Flamethrower / Heavy Pistol, Knife. (0 | 42)
    VETERAN KAZAK Boarding Shotgun / Heavy Pistol, Knife. (0 | 35)
    TM KURYER (Total Reaction) Uragan MRL, Antipersonnel Mines / Electric Pulse. (1 | 21)
    TM KURYER Katyusha MRL, Antipersonnel Mines / Electric Pulse. (1 | 14)
    TRAKTOR MUL (Total Reaction) Uragan MRL / Electric Pulse. (1 | 18)
    TRAKTOR MUL Katyusha MRL / Electric Pulse. (1 | 11)
    LINE KAZAK (Infinity Spec-Ops) (0 XP) Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 10)
    TANKHUNTER Missile Launcher / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 29)

    The molotok ratnik must happen at some point, it's probably the reason why the shotgun one was in cold front. And probably a desired miniature for most TAK players, I hope the sculpt turns out well enough.
    With one blister and one profile in cold front I fear veterans are heading the grenzer route, but I really hope we see at the very least one more blister. A 3 miniature box is the best case scenario to be able to play with the 5 man pain train core. (PLEASE no anorexic female version with high heels, we had enough with the ugly HMG ammunition belt)
    Traktor muls and kuryers are probably going to share one single box, maybe they did't had time to design the kuryer because the picture of them in the books is just the regular mul with a different logo.
    Considering the success of tak it's likely to see a spec ops and a dire foes at some point. I'm hoping for a miniature with gas mask like the original intel.
    The missile launcher tank hunter feels unlikely, but who knows it could happen.


    Unlikely releases

    TANKHUNTER Portable Autocannon, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 34)
    DYNAMO Paramedic (MediKit) Boarding Shotgun / Pistol, CC Weapon. (0.5 | 29)
    DYNAMO (Forward Observer) Rifle / Assault Pistol, CC Weapon. (0.5 | 29)
    SPETSNAZ (CH: Mimetism, AD: Parachutist) Rifle, Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW, Knife. (0 | 31)
    VASSILY Lieutenant (Forward Observer) T2 Sniper, D-Charges / Heavy Pistol, Knife. (1 | 35)
    IRMANDINHO Rifle, D-Charges, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW. (0 | 14)

    The tank hunter autocannon is trapped in a blister with the hmg one, so he is likely going to remain there for a couple of years sadly.
    The bikers usually don't get more than 2 miniatures so dynamos are out.
    Bostria commented once that the spetsnaz with rifle was not going to happen or at least very unlikely, Also they already have the repack.
    Vassily sniper could happen at some point but I don't think it's going to be any time soon.
    With 2 irmandinho blisters the rifle one is highly unlikely (unless the meta changes radically and warbands with rifles are the best thing in the world with N4)


    To be resculpted

    112 Light Shotgun / Pistol, CCW. (0 | 12)
    SCOUT Ojotnik, D-Charges, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 29)
    DOZER Rifle, Akrylat-Kanone / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 14)

    The 112 is awesome but at the same time it's a pain to ensemble and transport.
    The scout ojotnik needs to happen as he is the default profile for them and an iconic troop profile.
    I guess at some point the akrilat dozer will pop out but not any time soon.

    What do you think?

    Don't put the Molotok on male Dynamo back and you have "universal proxy" for all Dynamo profiles. Besides, let's be honest, I'd rather have my Molotok anywhere but on that biker.

    Mul's I think are a no-no, there's already a box that's holding up quite good.

    Shame that AC Tankhunter got packed with HMG. We'll be stuck with fugly model for almost eternity.

    Hopefully Veterans will go Janissary route - three men box + HMG blister. That plus another Ratnik will make my collection complete.

    Veteran Kazak box and Ratnik would be great.

    Maybe Tankhunter box? With new ML, AC and current HMG.

    I really like MULs. Only thing I dislike are those bags on them.

    Box of Vets would be good, maybe even just three in a box with another Strelok or something in it to go to 4 models.
    the other Ratnik can't happen soon enough but will most likely be in its own box
    a new Ojotnik scout wouldn't go amiss either.
    Muls are probably here to stay for a while, other peoples REMs need love way more than they do.

    The current muls are going to be resculpted at some point, even if it's just for ease of assemble.

    The bags are ok for baggage, mi gripe is that they have a turret like articulation but are unable to move properly due the big size of the guns, it's not a great design.
    In the infinity art book 1 you can find several discarded versions of them.

    After seeing the sculpt for Pavel holding an ojotnik. I feel were not gonna see an ojotnik scout any time soon (much like the rifle Airborne and the special edition van zant)

    I still feel not having the tank hunter from ice storm have an autocannon was a crime. It's such an iconic profile I feel it really deserved a redo to join the majority of kazak releases.

    I'm still holding out hope for a vet Kazak box. I think they could do a box of four. Boarding Shotgun, T2 Rifle, Mk12, Paramedic(since the love to hand out Paramedic in box sets) I reall dont want them to get the orc treatment and be scattered all over

    The rifle ranger is rarey used and just one of the 4 weapon options.
    The scout ojotnik is used for 5 of the 7 scout profiles.

    Rarely used but a real gem. But your point about the number of profiles is very true. I'm still just worried they'll still see it as an excuse to hold off on making one. I would like to see a proper model of a scout aiming his ojotnik.

    Well, I'd like to see a 3/4 models box but I believe we can expect only another blister, I like Vet Kazak but I really doubt i'll be able to play more than 2 or 3 of them.

    I would only ever take the boarding shotgun Vet Kazak in a full link. And I really want to see the MK12 and T2 rifle versions more that the Shotgun.

    Gameplay-wise I think the T2 X-visor is the star of the show, but I appreciate the shotgun a lot even in a haris. If you want the a shotgun in a haris you have to chose between the vet and Boronin. If you don't want to deal with the big base and have some extra points to spare the vet shotgun is a good option staking mods with R 3.
    BS 13 +6 = 19 with R 3 while having cover and mimetism. He is an excellent corner cleaner.

    Usually the assault pistols and flamers are going to be enough to deal with short range engagements but the shotgun is definitely a solid option.

    Just starting to look at TAK, which vet kazak profiles are most useful beyond the HMG profile for Harris or in a special fire team with Frontoviks? It seems like HMG, T-2 and BSG are all decent options, but want to confirm for buying/conversion purposes.

    Thanks!

    It depends on the mission you're playing.

    I love the paramedic profile as well, he's a baller specialist as well as being a HI model for missions that give bonuses for those sorts of things.

    I take a Vet in every list I plan, which profile depends entirely on what I want him to do that game.

    +1 for Ratnik.

    I love the HRL miniature but its outclassed by merit of its poor burst.

    I would like some new scout miniatures. Saying that, Sniper rifle scout is crap and the old Ojotnik miniature is still great.

    Carmen is out next month. Biker chick with werewolf is pretty awesome.

    I really cant complain. TAK has had a pretty solid release schedule and is nearly finished. The Frontovik box and Beyond Coldfront are superb additions.

    I also dislike the scout sniper, that hand between the trigger and the magazine and the super tiny rifle stock make my eyes roll back.

    To me some frontoviks have small heads XD, or at the very least the helmets are paper thinn but even then.

    Good job its not got the SA-80 style Marksman rifle. If its anything like the first version real world rifle the magazine falls out to a soft breath!

    Vassiliy Plushenko was a nice quick release. He is an absolute beast. The Dynamo bikers were fantastic (regular bikers without impetuous!!!). They have done me well so far in the board control department. What really annoys me off about those miniatures is its obvious they just copy/pasted the USAriadna bike. This would be fine but as the son of a military biker, having Russians using American KLR's triggers me!
