    I really agree with this thinking. I expect Defiance to provide all the 'missing' Shas sculpts.



    The Karakuri are some of the last hand-sculpted models in the entire range, let alone in JSA. So new geishabots would not surprise me at all.

    This is one of those things that is infuriatingly facepalmworthy.

    It's like...seriously? We needed someone to tell them this?

    Yeah, sometimes I swear that CB doesn't play the same game the rest of us do, because they do not value the same profiles we do at all!

    Looking at my current conversions in progress, I would not be surprised about a Monstrucker and some Mukthar.

    Yeah - chances are high, that it will take a while :smirk: so maybe not for January.

    (I am afraid CB misses the opportunity here to put an extra arm set in the blister):worried:

    It's weird, because there was that parroted claim about "they can view your lists in Army and use it to decide what to release!".

    Anyways, there's enough missing Securitate and Grenzer profiles to fill multiple boxes--not blisters!

    Said it before, repeating for those in the back:
    The Repeater is now modeled. It's on the Boarding Shotgun Securitate in the Securitate box...so a Combi Rifle Repeater is kinda necessary.
    FOs are getting models, so again.
    Biometric Visors are modeled as well...so that's another one.

    Between all of us here, CB's missed a huge opportunity for having a 'path' for players to follow when starting a faction and cutting down on SKUs.
    Imagine if you will...
    A $100 'faction starter' army pack, containing an item that would be roughly equivalent to the faction's 6 model starter, a 'Big Tasty' model(S6 TAG, biker, something of this nature), and a unit with low AVA and limited number of options.
    -Remove 'faction starters' from the available range.
    Replace the SKU with a 'faction booster' instead. Same 6 model setup as the starter sets, just not needing to be a 'starting point'.
    Could you guys imagine if they'd done Tunguska that way?

    I have to admit, thats not a bad idea. The big starter boxes already exist. JSA for example. I wonder when (or if) they will extract the regular starterbox out of this, the release was some month ago. They did it with USA though this was already some years ago.

    Many models are only available via mixed boxes this days. So boxes that serves a faction or sektor seem a good idea. Some overlapping in a faction will not hurt much, as long you are not forced to buy a mini double.

    The only concern about this is the price. A 40.- € box is not a big obstacle, a 100 € box is ... especially for younger people.

    I don't really see Infinity having a "younger" crowd. Youngest I've seen has been mid to late teens, and it's not unfeasible for that to be doable.

    I believe it’s been said by CB that everything that shows up in Defiance will have a counterpart in Infinity. So, anything we see there, we’ll see in the “main” game as well.

    Pretty sure o12 were supposed to have a run of releases from Jan onwards for a few months. Def put them on the radar, they've got a lot of stuff to come out

    Doesn't seem to slow down GW, though that does change from an impulse buy to a deliberate choice.


    I'm not expecting anything more than profiles for all the stuff in Defiance.

    I’m expecting both Defiance and Infinity sculpts.

    yes, they missed a big one there. The most wanted nomad sectorial (one of the top sellers of the company), whitout its fluf, with not much hype, not much insight.... my impresion is that they thought TJC was gonna sell by itself, so they didn't need to work much to it (that's also what I think is the reason behind lots of the things that happened during that year), and because they think that if we want grenzers and securitates, we will pick more of the boxes and convert them, there ir no need for more. I cannot be possitive in regards TJC releases for this year
