    Now that the kappa, sniper hacker, an HMG are in the starmada box, so we get the missing missle launcher in a blister?
    And what is with people like me who aren't that inclined to get starmada and want to play vanilla? I really hopes for something different. Not so many new toys but fireteams for the existing ones. Kappa, dakini and betatrooper cores maybe mixed as special, omega Haris, gamma duo, cyberghosts as wildcard, linkable REMs something along this lines.
    But back to topic: What do you guys think are the chances of a kappa SWC box?

    Fifty-fifty.

    More likely than not, you're in a situation where it's best to say fuck it and just buy the Starmada box. Everything in there is for vanilla too, and Corvus Belli just wants their dollah dollah bills y'all.

    IMO, pretty much zero, I'm afraid. CB almost never release elements from within an existing box separately, only a handful of exceptions exist. And besides, some of the new toys MIGHT be good for Vanilla and they're still all O-12.

    Euro bills actually because Spain :stuck_out_tongue:

    Fireteams in Vanilla? Did I miss something? As much as I would like it, I haven't heard anything like this, so I guess my tapas kappas will be just for proxying for some more time.

    On a side note, which mini would you like to see next (for vanilla)? I'm hoping for Varangians, cyberghosts, and PsiCops

    No, I didn't mean fireteams in vanilla. But a sectorial with these units instead of bringing new ones.
    And to answer your question: all profiles without model but the one I want the most are the lynx!
    And minis completing the missing loadouts. So more omegas, betatroopers etc. Before releasing new stuff.

    If you want Varangian Guard, just go buy Scots. The Varangian Guard are legitimately a Caledonian mercenary outfit that O-12 hires.

    Wonder why the hell Varangian Guard are Scottish when they should be Norse or Rus

    Founder wanted a historic reference and PanOceania's norse were too civilised to fit the "barbarian mercenary" theme.

    you get the bike from starmada box!

    I think next box for 012 will be Varangians because they are options for many armies now. Next blister probably Razor?

    Rus takes their name from Roslagen, a coastal area just north of Stockholm, though the ones who formed the Varangians seem to be slavic (Kiev). But yeah, even the Anglo-Saxons recruited to the Varangian Guard seem to have been drafted from tribes conquered or heavily influenced by Vikings and if Varangians were to be characterized by an area more accurate to history it should rightfully be Scandinavian.

    I think the name is more fitting their position than their culture. The Original Varangian Guard were an elite unit composed of 'Barbarian' foreigners (vikings) that fought for and protected the Byzantine Emperor and his household.

    The new Varangian Guard is a Veteran Mercenary Unit composed of 'Barbarian' foreigners (Ariadnan Scots) that work contracts almost exclusively for the chief government of the Human Sphere. (O-12)

    That makes a lot of sense.
