    Just that !
    Daoying is top notch, and i really like de Yadus : no stupidly stretch poses, no cloth floating around like they are in gale force 9 (so far loup garou is the only minis to really succeed in rendering strong wind impression). The are synthetics and look so !

    I don't know...It's the dorsal protection and the left arm's triceps. The sculpture looks (almost) perfectly with the Yan Huo dossier... maybe the MHMG.
    I do not think it is Shang ji, the dossier has been updated but the design remains the same.

    Even the original Tigers (combi+LFT) had a different front-end to the shotgun.

    Single barrel and a large fore-grip on the combi.

    thin foregrip and dual barrels.

    But yes, the big drum mag is generally more usable as your identifier if you're not a gun nerd like I am. I don't actually pay attention to what magazine you have loaded in there, because they make drums for M16s (well, M27s), drums for RPKs, etc, and those exact same weapons will take standard sticks.

    Pay attention to the two on the right.
    Luckily, they are arranged in the same order as on Infinity's store page (I accidentally lied), but if you can't remember which order they are in, can you tell which one is a Combi and which one is a BSG without looking it up?

    (This might be a trick question :p )
    Edit: and when I look at them closer I notice that the BSG and Combi has been flipped compared to the stock art.

    Better example pic for your case, but yes, I can tell them apart instantly without looking them up (I'm actually having a hard time IDing the second from the left, pretty sure that's a Contender, but it took until I was writing this sentence to remember that).

    BSG has two same-sized barrels, combi+LSG has two different sized barrels.

    Also has a very differently-shaped fore-end, BSG is rounded and fairly slender, combi is wider and cut back at an angle.

    Which isn't obvious to me when playing, and I don't think anyone around my meta would be able to tell that either of those are a shotgun.

    The new one is distinct in a way that makes it scream "SHOTGUN" (or, as I've been told was the case for months during early development cycle of Battlefield 3 before someone noticed it "shoutgun")

    The second is a Contender, yes, and I think that's the only Contender ever devised as an actual full sized gun for Yu Jing. The others have been wrist-cannons or attachments I think.

    I know what you're thinking. "Did he load a banana mag, or a drum one?" To tell the truth, in all the excitement I've kind of lost track myself. But since this might be a boarding shotgun with damage 14, whose impact template would blow your buddies' heads clean off... you've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?"

    Well, do you, punk?

    The Haqq one is a separate one too, but it depends on whether you classify an SMG with an anal dildo on its barrel as a full-sized gun.

    He never was Yu Jing, but you're right, he's carrying the same (Yu Jing?) design, which honestly looks more like an assault rifle than a civilian grade competition gun.

    I know a lot of people who shoot AR15s in competitions. Or some accuracy-improved variant thereof. Only difference between an AR platform and the M16 series is the select-fire parts.

    2 male Yadu poses are pretty nice.

    Female HMG isn't bad pose, but I hope that HMG isn't as tiny as it looks...

    On the other hand, Posthuman Yadu HRL is just facepalm

    The best part is, they obviously didn't just copy the pose, they remade the pose for Yadu. XD Well, half-assed profiles, half-assed minis?

    The AR15 is such a weird weapon to be civilian legal, but with the Contender there's a bit more differences that I'd expect a Contender to be a bolt-action rifle or look like a bolt-action rifle. Preferably with a whole bunch of ergonomic attachments and modifications.
