    New forum, new opportunity to wish and wonder what will come to be in the future...

    Vanilla: I actually really like Vanilla CA at the moment. For me there's a great balance of units and optimised profiles, BIT & KISS have only made our faction go from good to great. I'd love to see CoC make it in somewhere, an Umbra Legate seems a sensible option as the representative of the EI when an Aspect isn't around.

    Onyx: I've been playing this sectorial to death ever since it's release and I've struggled to get bored with it. One of the only gaps that bugs me is when I play the Spec Ops Extra, Onyx has been left behind so far as we still haven't got a Spec Ops that can link. During ITS 8 there was a marker as part of the pack that was for a Nexus Spec Ops... I can only hope they get around to it before the next book! There's also a distinct lack of characters, will we ever see a profile for Nourkias?

    MAF: Not a sectorial I've played before but I draw plenty of units from it when playing vanilla or Onyx. I'd love to get a Rodok with a Combi that isn't paying for Shotguns too!

    Shas: I have great hopes for Shas, I love the idea of them, and how they're supposed to operate, but their update is long overdue. The Speculo Killer, Noctifer, Sphinx and Malignos are just superb and I'm glad that the latter 3 got ported into HS:N3.
    Things I'd like to see: Morpho-Scan, Protheion, Bioimmunity, completely reworked Seed rules. A thought that pops up in my head every now and then is some sort of rule that involves a large seed or unit that explodes scattering a number of units via dispersion. I do love a bit of chaos.

    I'm still wating to Ur sectorial... By the time just playing onix ( aka vanilla 2.0). But its true that shas need a huge rework and with some things fixed, it could be a great and funny sectorial. Now is funny but too much tryhard xd

    well, my wishlist is simple, as I only play Vanilla and MAF:

    Vanilla: Make Skiavoros an HI, give all EI aspects structure instead of wounds. Perhaps make it so that Mnemonica also confers remote presence, but I'm not sure if this is really useful or necessary.

    MAF: Bump Suryat PH to 14, Make vanguards MI with Arm3 and leave the rest of the stats as is. Maybe add a cheap HI or rambo style MI or LI lieutenant model so we can go nuts with the morat rule. I'd love to see daturazis get haris too.

    This is a NEED.

    We also need a couple of haris in Onyx in form of Umbra + Rodok / Unidron. Also this sectorial army need a lot of love. Is the MOST boring army I ever used. The lists are always with the same things. We need a real versatile one to shine.

    The most mandatory profile that EI need, is Phneumarch Warcor-like profile.

    Pneumarch could be a cheapo source of G:Mnemonica (and Strategos pls cb) into Onyx, helping patch that dreadful Lt weakness.

    I'd love more Sygmaa, maybe a Warband unit but I'm not sure we need another one. Or more Urkherit profiles unless they are really only Nexus Operatives.

    Dat Character to give them Haris kinda like Senor Massacre would be neat.

    Also all Aspects gaining STR would be fluffy and cool. Do it.

    I think that we all must initiate a Campaign like the "Fat Yuan Yuan Now" for the Pneumarch Rules and/or STR on all Aspects

    I'm confused, why would we want the Skaivoros to be HI?

    Seems like it adds a lot of vulnerabilities for no benefit.

    So what you really want is for the stats to increase?

    That would probably drive up the cost of the unit, so no thanks, it's not something I want.

    The Skiavoro is fine as is, just probably needs an updated model if anything.

    Something not as edgy and without a black-red colour scheme for shasvastii is what I want the most for CA, but it seems highly unlikely that CB won't get Shas to fit the current CA aesthetics.

    They don't really need to fit, the Morats fit but are visually distinct with their own design trends and weapons so I imagine they'll go the same route for Shasvastii (as they have with the Sygmaa).

    Yeah. Each section of the CA is consistent within themselves, but the whole range is hardly homogenised. The Aspect/Unidron stuff is still distinct from the Morats, from the Umbra, from the Sygmaa. Plus we know some of the Shasvastii models aren’t changing (Sphinx, Noctifers) so they won’t be changing toooo much.

    I want a "fat Samaritan" to be honest. One who's eaten waaaay too many Fusiliers. He just can't stop... what a fatass.

    Onyx (and to a lesser extent Shas) needs some sort of solution to the Lt issue. If Umbra had Mnemonica, we might actually run Umbra lieutenants (which seems to be fluffy with the sectorial.)

    Actually, Skiavoros is, like all Umbra profiles, overpriced for its stats.
    Perhaps -5 points will make it correct, or a little upgrade in movement. (6-2?)

    A H+ Liutenant 0.5 option for Skiavoros might be quite interesting.

    Umbra Legates, is overpriced too, cuz is just a quite better Deva with +20 point costs for a good CC and mimetism.
    With -4 point or Shock Immunity, will be cool. Or, at least Chain of Command.

    Umbra Samaritan is cool, but I personally though that with -3 point can be a good profile, or just adding him Mimetism.

    These are highly outdated profiles that seems obsolete for the current metagame. Anyone is using them with good rentability.

    In the other hand, I want to see more types of Aspects, Sygmaa and Drones.

    1) Sygmaa: a 2X point WB with Fire and Trasmutation will be quite interesting, or a Veteran profile with Transmutation and any cool rule that we don't already have (mind on Holo for example, or Biometric Visor or X Visor)

    2) Aspect: I would love to see a Jumper troop (we have Imetron...). Perhaps a MI with Mimetism and Mk12 with any cool rule? The other one could be a infiltrator with limited camo and plasma carabine with Specialist and D-Charges? Mind on BS 12 and NWI and more expensive than Aleph Proxys.

    3) Drone: please, we need anything that prevent us to lose Imetron at Ariadna Traktor Mul... haha.
    Also I would love to see a Advance Deployment Drone with a profile close to Unidron one and some interesting rule (Perhaps our version of Garuda with Dogged? Perhaps just a A.Deployment Plasma Carabine with dogged and Chain Colt?)
    And, also I just need to play a Synchronized Drone (mind on anything like Kiss without adhesive and repeater and with Pulzar) in any troop (Nexus perhaps?)

    Sorry for my bad English, I'm just a Spanish freak of CA who have loads of ideas hahaha

    The reason why I want it is mostly to justify its price tag. Right now it's kinda too expensive, even if it is very good and has shock immunity. I'd rather it was a bit more beefy, even if that does come with an extra weakness

    I wouldn't argue if CB lowered the Skiavoros' cost, but I don't think it's necessary.

    I think he justifies his cost with his deceiving durability, a plasma rifle, strategos, g: mnemonica, and a Sep+.

    Him lacking HI vulnerabilities while having the durability of a typical HI from most other factions is a big part of why he works. He doesn't have two wounds or 5 armor, but being MI with mimetism, 3 ARM, structure plus NWI, and a suppression fire weapon with an impact template that forces two saves per hit are no joke; especially in suppression fire.

    If I could change anything on his profile it would be the 4-2 movement.

    Onyx get more Haris options than MO, and as many as NCA or USARF!

    Don't know they were born some factions!
