    I like the look of all those mags. I wish it was replicated across more PanO units.

    If he’s a Snake Eater and Indigo, makes sense.

    Yeah, but that kills his "LOL IT'S NOT A LIBERAL" joke. Don't go using your logic!

    That's a PanO Marksmanrifle alright. 3rd time's the charm, might actually be decent.

    Since we're PanO he's gonna be kinda meh with only BS12 and no mods next to Kamau/Fusilier HMGs. Lacks a helmet so probably no Visor and doesn't look like Mimetism (then again who does these days... looking at you Megalodron). The extra magazines could actually end up being Full Auto L1 (L2 would be really weird), otherwise there's always hope for Marksmanship L2/LX (or Fatality, yay...not).

    A lot of room left from there, Dire Foes tend to hit at least the low 20s, I wonder what's going to compliment his kit.
    We're likely to be in for a surprise or two... ARM2, WIP13, MMR, Specialist Operative clocks in just 16 points. There's room for a 6-11 points of extra stuff here (and I hope it's not the usual Assaultpistol surprise). BS13 and or Gunnery Skill seems likely, a piece of utility equipment or Skill would be preferable to Engineer or another gun.

    On the visual level seems pretty uninspired next to the Chaincolt wielding Nomad gal and her fancy coat.

    @Teslarod
    You get me. Pretty much what you said. I don't find VIRD to be too heavily crunched on SWC, so it'll be interesting to see what (if anything) will set the Dire Foe apart from just taking a Kamau SWC weapon (in particular, that HRL is so appealing as a really versatile platform for multiple ammo types.)

    I'm hoping that he'll either be ultra bare-bones. If his cost was in the teens, with very few frills except for the MMR and Specialist, I'd gladly take him as a slightly more expensive alternative to a basic Fusilier FO.

    Since he'll likely cost more though, he'll need to bring some unique utility.

    A more open pose would have been nice, to show off the mags on his chest. But I like that those components are now in CB's sculpting repertoire, and hopefully they'll get added to more PanO minis in the future.

    I wonder if he'll have two roles: solo profile and FTO profile.

    Maybe he'll be NCA exclusive, and he's Australian? :P

    Well...
    An MMR with Mimetism would actually be pretty useful for an NCA Fusilier link. It's one place where Mimetism in a mixed link team hasn't been done already :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Regulars also have ribbed pants in the crotch section. Most assuredly not a Regular.

    For me, though, another Business HVT is a good thing.

    I hope whatever specialist he ends up being is decent, I'm sick of the PanO usual specialist op

    Maybe worthwhile CoC?
    engineer?

    basic fusilier profile without fireteam options and Full auto L2 + Fat L2 would be actually quite fun and balanced xD

    Doesn't the magazine capacity limitation mean that multiple magazines would be required? I think it makes the guy MORE likely to be a Californian.

    For all we know, the use of micro-munitions in the Infinityverse might make those magazines hi-capacity.

    Whatever the case, I'm good to move on with this one. He's got mags, I think it's a good look for PanO.

    Interesting that you choose to launch a personal attack right off the bat and the person who liked it.

    Maybe have better jokes in the future?
