    So today it came out a video on the CB channel about the new BoW campaign and Bostria spoke about one of the missions.
    New rule, "Dockland": MOV +1´ to aquatic terrain
    There are only 4 units with this rule in all Infinity, 3 of them are PanO, 2 are Varuna..... (Bagh Mari, Kamau, Cutter & Devil Dogs)

    I know that anyone with multiterrain can take advantage, but they have being insisting a lot about the thematic nature of the campaign and it sure looks like a great way to present the sectorial.
    Can this be the way they release Varuna?
    I know that the healthy thing is to keep expectations down, but, what if?

    What do you guys think ?

    The release slot for Varuna is probably the one in october, as it is around the same time that "We blow up Acontecimento" was in the road map, and with the Merovingia precedent may be an indication that they are just putting the Acon moulds in a cupboard to release Varuna.


    So I'm gonna bet that you get Varuna in October and I don't get that Acon Regular Hacker LGL with Panda.

    I mean, I would have probably kept using Emily, but an alternate PanO FastPanda woudl have been cool.

    At least I got all the acon minis I could possibly need.

    Acon just got a new starter a new TAG and new Aleph units, not to mention the 2 Akals. Doubt they are going anywhere.

    If its not Acon then its gonna be NCA.

    They've been running pretty dry lately, haven't they?

    actually...

    Between the
    Bagh mari
    Akals
    Dragoe
    Tikbalang
    Rao
    Signh (the eldest)
    Starter
    Naga
    Scylla
    Drakios
    Tuecer

    The only units that are out of date for ASA are the non SWC regulars....a few montessa profiles and the Guarda

    its going to be none of them....

    NCA has
    Bolts
    Aquila HMG
    Uhlan
    Swiss HMG
    Fusiliers
    Locust
    Friar
    Garuda

    Lots of solo blisters, but the guts of the secotrial are up to date in the fusiliers and hte bolts

    its easier to make a list of non-updated PanO profiles than updated ones really. particularly now MO is getting love

    Lets list models where none of the models have at least 1 updated sculpt then,
    Auxilia
    Hexa
    The support box (and weve already seen teh trauma doc dossier)
    the rems (not that theyve aged poorly, they are still the best)
    Tuetons
    Sepulchre
    Santiago (maybe)
    Guarda
    Cutter

    even taking into account the actual profiles theres not a significant chunk of PanO that isnt a modern sculpt

    I think the big news is that dockland is +1 move for aquatic and not -2 for everyone else, a subtle yet significant design shift.

    It was the same in Wotan with 0-G terrain and nothing came of it afterwards,so no big shift that i´m aware of

    I agree that we probably won't see Varuna in time for the campaign, but this rule is still a nice nod to Kamau, Bagh Mari and the Cutter. Playing around with Kamau and the Cutter in Vanilla is a nice way to get excited for the full Varuna release.

    They Buffed the Ninja KHD with +1 mov and +3 to the HD, and you have to be playing against JSA..... so as to play the mission i think is going to be boring
    Either 1- you make a list which focus is to deal with 3 buffed up KHD ninjas or 2- you play Nomads or 3-you play JSA yourself or 4- you get steamrolled

    I would expect other missions to have similar bonuses/buffs.

    Yeah you could AD Geckos in the last one, it was crazy-town. PanO as TAG faction supreme? Not in that campaign, Geckos dropping in and storming directly into your opponent's DZ was where it was at.

    "Blow up Acontecimento" is just one big pile of drek. As far as I remember the picture, there were events like "Spaceship Lost" and "We Kill Don Peyote", which haven't happened yet (and I don't expect that they'll ever happen, taking aside that it doesn't look like a serious stuff). Nothing about Backdoor Crisis, nothing about Merovingia, nothing about Japanese secession... just this pile of nonsenses. I wouldn't took that seriously therefore...

    So we got PanO's video



    One mission has AD1 Mountain Terrain troops (Jotumms, also Volunteers and Briscards but who cares). That's fine and balanced.

    The other one has +1SWC, which is also nice.




    It's CB we're talking about. Efficient and rational are not their trademarks.


    In October we'll see wether I'm a crazy paranoid or a crazy paranoid that was right al allong.

    Did our Crocman jost got to shoot 120 cm out without negative modifiers?

    Also, we have to learn if Multiterrain can be used to take advantage of all the terrain rules

    Yes, evil croc is evil and murderous.

    If Wotan is a precedent, the answer is only Jotumm gets to Helicopter into battle.



    But AD1 Jotumm is so trolltastic. Because Cutter is a thing, so your rival wont know what it is until it kills him with bullets. Lots of bullets.

    I love trolltastic things.
