    Given that we know that there is a USARF rework coming down around then it wouldn't surprised if they do a 300pt box and replace the army pack.

    if it were to be Foreign Company, I would bet this list:
    Foreign Company

    AVICENNA Combi Rifle, Flash Pulse / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 27)

    6 SWC | 298 Points

    Open in Infinity Army

    Avicenna, Akhalis hacker (part of a starter, the blister was with Spitfire), the 4 heroes, the 4 bolts (if NCA gets discontinued, the Bolts would be only in FO, I think), and 2 servants for Avicenna.

    That being said, I'm not sure about Avicenna + 2 Zondbots, but I don't know which profile with 35pts could fit.

    Another option would be Kaplan box + Kaplan blister, Bolts box, Akhali hacker, and 1-3 regular bolts (since the starter would be discontinued), totaling more than 300 pts, but the Bolts have AVA 4... I say this one because the only Lts in FO are heroes, Kriza, Securitate or bolts... and with AVA Total I'm not sure how to fit them there (since the Tunguska starter already has a Kriza HMG and 3 securitate).

    They very much wasted the USARF Army Pack as a concept. They could have made the Maverick in that set get a second set of arms, same with the Devil Dog.

    Regarding the army pack coming: I don't expect to see Hannibal and Friends. That new set isn't out yet, they're not going to give you a discounted way to get it.

    All new sculpts.
    Like finally the Securitate Feuerbach, and a Chimera and Clockmaker rescuplt, etc...

    An Orc for the Special Fireteam Core might be better to make it playable.

    Pure speculation:

    O-12 hasn't had any separate releases, it would certainly be an interesting way of releasing figurines for them...

    That would be cool, unfortunately we know it's NA2 from the Q&A.

    Going on past histories and CB commentary the 300pt boxes are:

    - Collections of existing SKUs sold at a discount.
    - No exclusive or special miniatures.
    - No split boxes
    - Produced on a temporary basis, with only 2 being in production at a time
    - Will not contain a starter pack

    Sirius unit is a separate O-12 release.

    It's just not available outside of the Advance Pack yet.

    What if it's just NA2 and a collection of models used in multiple armies?

    Like Brawler, Druze, Yuan Yuan, Bashi, Hunzakuts, Bounty Hunters and several Special Characters like Valerya and Avicenna? You can make a Druze 300pts Pack of it (Druze, Brawler, Hunzakut, Bashi, Valerya, Bounty Hunters).

    So no resculpts... :sweat:

    If it turns out to be Foreign Company,
    they'd have to add in the 3 Orcs or the 4 Bolts,
    as you need at least 1 Orc or Bolt to build that Special Core.
    My bet is on Bolts, as you then can have a Bolt Haris as well.
    That'd be like 230 to 240 points for 8 models.
    Then add something like Avicenna and a CorcMan and your done.

    On the other hand, no resculpts held hostage in an expensive box that might not be for a faction you're interested in or contain models you already own.

    The 300pt boxes are essentially just special offer bundles. They're also SKU neutral as they only keep two in production.

    Yeah, and we still don't know if they might include something that isn't even available yet, like the A-Team box.

    While I think it will be Foreign Company with the Aristea characters. I too wish they did a Druze/Ikari/Dahshat/QK box.

    Brawlers
    Hunzakut/Al Hawwa
    Druze
    Yuan Yuan
    Bash Bazouks
    Bounty Hunters
    Krakot
    Liberto

    Here's my guess:

    Brawler HRL
    Brawler MULTI Sniper
    Brawler Doctor
    Brawler LT

    Druze HMG
    Druze Killer Hacker
    Druze Shock Marksman
    Druze Combi Rifle/Chain Colt

    Scarface & Cordelia

    Pathfinder Dronbot

    Fugazi Dronbot

    Bashi Bazouk w/Boarding Shotgun

    Four complete boxes + 1 Blister. 299 points, 6SWC

    ==========Edit=============

    Also, without even meaning to, I covered all the specialist bases. Noice.

    Considering I've recently bought a bunch of standins for Dahshat, I bet it's going to be a box filled with Brawlers and Bounty Hunters...

    I'm less certain about a ForCo box, at least one with the SoF heroes. Most of the boxes so far have been more to breathe life into stuff that isn't selling as well (Tohaa and Onyx are the outliers, but a lot has changed about the formatting since them too). It doesn't make a lot of sense to me to release a small box and then follow it up two months later with a big box that has the same small box inside it.

    A more vanilla NA2 box, even if it is base focused towards one specific intially, makes a bit more sense really. Fill it with units that can jump between a few groups easily and you have a nice base anyone can work off of to different aims. Scarface and Cordelia perhaps and the could pull double duty as an Anaconda to cover over half. Brawlers are pretty ubiquitous and ABH hit a number of them too.

    I think @Ceilican just got it right. With that box you could run druze or Ikari (just adding the tanko). Or the TAG could be an Anaconda ... not as sexy but could work.

    But what if we get a new NA2 faction. The mercenarie forces are based on old and some new models. I find it likely that we get a whole new faction. Something like USARF meets may be Yu Jing. Like Shanghigh Noon. Think about Wild Bill. This could fit. So we can get ab box of old models and may be one or two new models. Of course this is not what was said about 300 boxes but CB surprised us with new things. Think about O12 comes out of nowhere. Why not a new faction in Wild West style?

    The Remotes are kind of the problem here. The only two NA2 lists that use the same remotes are Druze and Foreign Company. I haven't yet seen CB sell something as only a proxy.

    By that same token, though, Fugazi and Pathfinder are impossible to build out of the same box. Both of them require the repeater bit, and you only get one. But changing any of them to another Remote or changing Scarface to an Anaconda takes you over on SWC. IIRC, the force is supposed to be playable right out of the box.

    Remotes are not much of a problem with the proxy rules. Most of the remotes are exactly the same. FO bot, 8pt flash pulse, TR HMG.

    I think a Druze box could be the “NA2” box. Druze alone allows me to play Druze, Ikari, QK and even vanilla Haqq if I tried. The Anaconda is in Druze, Spiral, Star Co. Brawlers are in almost everything, same with ABH.
