    Army packs are all new sculpts rather than existing miniatures. They're also a permanent SKU whilst 300pt boxes are temporary with at most 2 in producion at any one time.

    I believe that was added to address an oversight. The models included couldn't be assembled for 300pts with the existing Brigada Lt option, so they were forced to add a cheaper one to make the box work, after it was already announced. I wouldn't expect it to happen again.

    and what about the MO 300-point where hospitallers got a 2-point decrease to accommodate the box?

    I stand corrected. I wasn't aware of that one.

    As noted, JSA was an Army Box, not a 300pt box. The JSA Army pack makes about 225pts WYSIWYG.

    My bad, I tend to conflate the two kinds of big boxes.

    Showing up as Dahshat on Gamenerdz as a preorder now. I think that could be a decent base for a more generic use one too.

    How can we get 300pts in ten models (excluding Nasmats) out of them?

    Unless there's a Maggie in there. But surely not...

    Considering they are AVA2, I wouldn't be surprised to see a Maggie in the box. But honestly I don't understand your first sentiment either. It's very easy to make an LI Dahshat list with all the Heavy Infantry in the sectorial. It might make it a little too similar to IA but they also don't necessarily have to limit it to Limited Insertion.

    Finding an LT and keeping the SWC down from existing items is the trouble, unless a new LT option pops up like with Corrigedor.
    Maybe not, Tohaa wasn't iirc.

    Hm, so, since this is a Merc army, I think we'll see a box of Brawlers in there at least. I got to 295 with JwBgHAPgzCIRBWApARgCwoExIZ4wkBCZdLHGEIkjbBGKK1G8kNIlA9TANnIUsIom4HJgDsYdsMm4xDQdNFiBQ9CNlDCmbFwJ0EbAAIoGXSnSgFBptJnNQ0Au03F9NbUkNzBshw0A so maybe smrtr peeps can get the even 300 and stay at 15ish orders to cover that new limited insertion type thing that allows 15 orders?

    Oh, maybe a warcor will be in the box given ITS11?

    Cool spreadsheet, it will be useful for figuring out which NA2 to go into next. One note, ForCo only have AVA 1 on brawlers... not that I'm bitter or anything...

    I'm finding it pretty easy while building it freely, especially if you do things like make the Zuyong HMG the LT (SWC discount), but the problem I'm having is making it with existing SKUs. I doubt they will be cherry picking Zuyongs out of the IA box to put into the Dahshat box.

    The HMG is a loose SKU itself but after that, you're out of luck for Zuyongs. The Ghulam HMG gets a discount too, but a box of Ghulams brings in a fair chunk of SWC themselves and pretty much cancels it all out - and making the hacker be the LT as a general rifleman might not meet the way these boxes have generally been WYSIWYG for the most part AND also doesn't save any SWC overall.

    Of course, if something else gets an LT option to fill a gap, this is all academical :stuck_out_tongue:
