    Pictures are worth a thousand words. Anybody have any thoughts or speculation on cost and layout for a biker doctor? How about uses? I know I'm looking forward to flying him up the board to shoot a medikit into a downed werewolves backside.

    My guess: 20 points, impetuous. Non linkable.
    My wish: 112 lose link option and doktor gains it.

    The Angel of Death will have a huge silhouette and will not be able to claim cover. Cool.

    Regular non-impetuous makes sense to me with the Dynamos being a thing.

    Even if the new profile just adds more speed for more points, I'm happy. A fast specialist is quite valuable in the late game. I'm going to buy this, but that motorcycle is going to need some mods; it is fugly. Overall, I rate this box quite poorly as far as aesthetics, in my opinion. Will definitely need some conversion work after purchase.

    I hope they change the Kazak Doctor profile because I just don't see how it fits in a normal list when compared to the 112.

    Personally I love the bigger, enduro-inspired BMW look to the bike over the Desperado's chopper or JSA's future bikes. The dozer too is a much more dynamic take on the old Traktor controller everyone needs one of.

    I like the dozer and Kazak Doctor, but I'm not too sure about the 112. In regards to the 112 when I first saw it I immediately started to think about the rules for it and impetuous came to my mind which imho wouldn't really suit this model....

    Agreed. I am not expecting this will have impetuous, but maybe he has been hanging out with Irmandinhos too much.

    So one thing I'm gonna say is, I think the bike will make the 112 much better, and make taking him for use as a doctor much more viable in Ariadna. That now being said. Please no more fucking bikes. I am getting so sick of seeing more and more bike troops piled into Ariadna. Or really just bikes in general, just about everytime I see them, they just feel so out of place. This only compounded by the fact we almost never get dismounted models of these units. (Yes I am aware that one exists for the 112 because he came out first. But the unreleased Dynamo's want to fight on foot after using their bikes to move up the board so they had better get a mounted and dismounted version in the box) now I'm gonna have to grab the old version of the 112 so I have a dismount for the new one.

    I really dig the Kazak Doctor. Hoping they'll get a chance to join links in TAK with the 112 change to a bike. If the bike becomes just a profile option for the 112 they almost might as well remove the kazak doc, as they'd only be waiting a unit slot in Ariadna. (Least she makes a sweet looking Line Kazak)

    Good lord do I love the new Dozer. A+ there CB. With that pose and quality update he almost looks like could have been a spec ops. Good to see a unit that has to be shared and taken across all the sectorals getting such a great look. ^w^

    As for the actual bike 112 model. Looks alright. I really dislike the box/lights on the back of his bike. But that will be easy to remove. I think the design of this bike will be a good indicator of what the Dynamo bikes will look like. (Fingers crossed they don't put stupid looking motorcycle helmets on them)

    I think the 112's profile won't change much. Probably just a flat upgrade to speed and also gain smoke launchers and kinematica on the bike. (Since it seems to be standard on bikes) Probably stay regular, and be about 16-18pts. I'm kinda expecting a little CC bump too.

    Is that supposed to be a light? I thought it was more of a high visibility medkit, like an AED pack.

    I though t that too at first glance. But why would you put you important medical supplies so tenuously attached to that back 2 inches of your bike frame. Lights made more sense once I thought about it. As typically he is a rescue service and not a black ops operative so emergency lights would be good to have on his typical service bike.

    I think they just attached the topcase frong on the Model. At least i will attach it more to the front.

    I am not sure about the Kazak Doc and i owe a Dozer already, but the 112 might be worth it.
    Maybe the Kazak Doc would be better if he had the option to link with Line Kazaks.

    I think the 112 model is OK aethestically

    But I'm wondering

    A) Will it have smoke?

    B) Will it be available to all the sectorials or just TAK and vanilla? .. My Caledonians would love a fast-moving specialist

    If the answer to these two questions is yes, i'll be pretty happy

    Personally, I'm expecting typical CB silliness so I would bank on an AP CCW and Martial arts L1 or 2 purely for the humor of it.

    Frankly speaking, all that matters is he is a fast specialist. Doctors seldom see use, even less so in cubeless factions

    I can see that some people may not like bikes in Infinity but in this case I actually think this is a clever solution for Ariadna's lack of G:Servants. :)

    Oh absolutely. It's a great solution. And will probably work fantastic in game. I just wish it was a solution we had before they crammed so many bikers down our throats.

    A. Every other dedicated biker unit in the game has either ODD/Mimetism or Smoke in some variety. Every other Ariadnan bike has smoke. So I'm gonna say it's pretty much a given the 112 will have smoke too.

    B. With the biker 112 being release in the general Ariadnan support box. I think it is also safe to assume that he is going to be getting the biker overhaul across the board in every sectoral. And his old profile is going to be replaced altogether. Only the Kazak Doctor is more or less exclusive to TAK and Vanilla. (Which has me feel that the ol Kazak Doctor will be picking up the 112's link duties as well). Giving them both very distinct roles from each other as the team doctor

    Martial arts would be awesome, a fast specialist with Stealth and a shotgun? Yes please.

    Most likely it'll just have the CCW and PH12 of the current profile.

    Oh, I meant with hims till retaining his CC of like 14, given that CB seems to forget "minor details" :D

    I hope they don't remove the dismounted profile, it would leave MRRF and Caledonia with only the biker. Sometimes a prone doctor hanging out with your core fire team is really useful.

    Don't forget USARF... if the 112 goes pure biker only TAK would have the option for a nice and cheap, no frills no thrills, doctor. We'd be down to paramedics, darts, and being swol.
