So how man years to we need to wait (again) until another Shang Ji comes out?
My heart can't take much more of that.
Just after the Taquel and Sakiel box I reckon :P
I'm sure they're in April 2020 release. March 2020 just needs to end first.
I just want that terrain set to be released.
I bought 4 sets of the new Kaldstrøm-type terrain and have been waiting for months to buy two sets of the expansion terrain set.
They were set to be released in November, then they kept pushing the date ever since. -_-
Honestly the release I'm most anticipating as well.
I've only got 2 sets of the Kaldstrom (plus a Wildfire), but yeah I've been waiting for the addon terrain too. I believe the November date was just the core terrain pack though, not a firm date for the addon.
I figured it'd be a couple light months leading up to an April Operation, but I guess that always depends on what armies you play.
Any idea when we'll find out the contents of the booster packs? Really looking forward to them!
I'd guess we'll find out in either a Christmas/new years news bulletin or in January at some point. The Jan releases still have to go out and so that's what marketing would be focusing on rather than building up hype for February releases.
February releases are still over two months away as CB tends to release things in the last week of the month, we'll probably find out when renders/painted models are ready for everything.
O-12 Booster pack Beta
Combined Army Booster pack Beta
List for March
* Cassandra Kusanagi (Spitfire)
* Yu Jing Booster Pack Beta
* PanOceania Booster Pack Beta
* Nyoka Assault Troops
* Monstruckers (Boarding Shotgun)
* Kaldstron Scenery Expansion Pack
Uxia is a must have. Nourkias' sword is weird and is that FTO KoDali? Aida is a complete miss, very happy I have the limited one.
Lol, is she stepping on a mine or something?
Also the scenery expansion.
It could be one of her own Viral mines, not activated yet, I guess? Tactical mines, yeah.
Well, it would be the largest mine in the whole Infinity.
Mines were so far depicted as round objects about hand-length (or maybe slightly more) in diameter.
Got to see the 'IMG's via a different device. Is that Hippolyta in the O-12 pack beta ? I kinda like Aida's model here, face is a little squished compared to what I'm used to seeing but I'll take that as her charm (her knee cop will get rounded off though as it's way too angular). Not convinced on Uxia though.
I'm trying hard not to notice 'tactical rocks' on models to save my mental state of mind (like the 7 rocks over 9 models kindly pictured in @Nuada Airgetlam post above). Darnit, now I've noticed... having said that, the Combined rock pose is at least different - would like to see more angles of that!
You can see the images on the CB store under the coming soon section too (link at bottom of the store page) O-12 beta has Crusher SMG, Hyppolita, and Ensign Cho.
Uxia is actually carrying her BSG, and it's one of the fancy new box magazine fed ones we've seen in Kosmoflot concept art.
@colbrook Many thanks (I spotted something right hehe)! Uxia's definitely kitted out for her role. Is Aida's cloak solid folds of mass?
There's a couple of alternate angles on the site, I'm getting the feeling she'll be one of those models that looks good in person/on the table but is hard to photograph.
That said, I'll already have two versions of her when Defiance arrives, so it's not a model I'll be picking up regardless.
I always wanted an Aida, and now have one with Defiance, which I think is a better pose than this one. This whole reveal is a bit mixed due to Defiance really. I'd like (but don't need, really) a Nourkias since I didn't get the Betrayal pack (because I had Ko Dali and Adil and don't care about the driver), but don't need/ want another Messer or Ko Dali. I guess Ko Dali is nice to see with the wings folded?
Likewise, I have a Hippolyta already and will be getting a Cho. This Cho and Hippo do look cool though, so... maybe? I dunno.
Defiance also gives us Uxia and Cassandra, and this Uxia doesn't look super special or anything. Granted, Defiance' Uxia is on a crate, but eh.
Dunno, some of this stuff I may get at some point, but definitely not a pre-order need to have.
Also amusing, I just noticed they have the transparent Aristeia! dice from the Defiance campaign on there. Guess they made plenty. :)
