To me it is a lot like the Chandra specops, but well, the SMG was a bet based on recent trends XD
The SMG seems to be the only Aleph weapon with the magazine pointing to the front though (like in the silhouette) so maybe it is an upgraded SMG.
Phalanx myrmidon with odd and martial arts and assault hacking and smokes and chain rifle and shotgun.
Is it so much to ask?!

Maybe I'm just thick, but are the other playable characters members of specific units (e.g., Devas, Dactyls, etc.) or are they more one-off spec-ops? My impression was that they're latter, but I could be wrong.
Related: depending on the success of this KS, I would not be at all surprised to see the roster of PCs grow beyond 1 per faction.
Picture reminds me of Cherno Alpha from Pacific Rim. Or the evil guy from Green Lantern (Hector Hammond). The head/helmet is way too big.
Nomads AHD Bandida Character ... That would be the ideal character for a mission like this. Skillset for every situation and with scavenger perfect for operating without supplies
Basically the same thing than all their past products. So there is a different reason or the situation has changed deeply.
You're aware of the difference in magnitudes of cost involved, right?
Plastic model, needing a steel mould: People have a Kickstarter to pay to produce a single steel mold for a model.
Metal model, needing resin mould: The time consuming and expensive step at the beginning is sculpting the masters, and producing enough of them to get the first run of moulds produced. "How many spin machines* do you have, so I know how many molds to make to get you started?"
Resin moulds wear out, and get replaced, during production. They used to complain about the Caskuda model that the parts were difficult to produce and the various pieces would tear the moulds. The result was that they made less money on the model, and it took longer to produce, because the mould refreshes happened more often.
To be frank, it would be really interesting to listen to a discussion from the production guys concerning the trade offs between printing and cleaning multiple masters, vs. the hand sculpted sequence of
Sculptor makes model
Production people dismember the model into pieces
Produce the first mold, and the first generation of copies
Take the first generation of copies, and produce the mass production molds
In other words, throwing away a resin mould is throwing away hours of labor that would have worn out and needed replacing eventually. That's why people can do limited edition metal figures at the drop of a hat.
* There's probably a fancy term for the machines they put the moulds in.
It's a bat isn't it? Large ears, big eyes, fangs, wings attached to arms, seems pretty batty to me.
Possibly a flying squirrel/sugar glider too.
Like I said, CatRabbitFish! ;)
Since Nomads are clever like foxes, it's a fox. Oh and the picture was already shown in the "Adopt a Bot" Blog-entry on the homepage (yeah, it was pretty long and obviously noone scrolled to the end of the page)
(CatRabbitFish ... Mwahahahahaha )
Bad Dragonstriker!!! *baps with a rolled-up newspaper*
Don't give CB ideas!!!
Would be interesting as a Hassassin, but I'd really say Haqq's 'thing' in-universe is the best biotech/medicine/healing.
I could see that, and I think that works better than the other ideas. Wonder what they're going to call this guy, though. Odysseus is dead, Perseus is in hiding in Nomads.
So they say...
They are, after all, going onto a journey into the unknown to face monsters.
They were quite firm about Odysseus being dead, and it's Perseus who was MIA for years before coming back (only to discover he'd been declared dead and had to hide with the Nomads)
Quoted because I had but one Like to give.
Woulnd't that one stir some revolt? I can envision him as an IMPersonator for Aleph, getting inside of enemy groups and making them break from the inside...
I'd say it's a vedic character, by the silhouette we have seen, so... Sarasvati, a sophist? :p
So they say...
I think they will go for the boring support character either if it's Aleph or Haqqis. A bit like the Parvati.
Soooo, in the new article: https://www.infinitythegame.com/blog/item/758-narrative-in-infinity-defiance
"New Characters, born to become part of the Infinity Universe, will join our heroes during their odyssey. This is the case for “Cuervo” Goldstein, the liaison officer; or Katherine Cho, the ensign from O-12 that coordinates the operation and passes down orders from Bureau Aegis on to “Cuervo”."
Cool, a Korean character! Been waiting for one!
