Yeah, the Nomad list has the Szalamandra on it, which is a recent-ish and very cool release.
The nomad TAG will be the Szalamandra as a repack.
Think this says TAG for the Ariadna
If they should be TAGs, so should the Kriza and other S5 HI.
Also remember, TAGRaid is coming up and they might want to save the reveal of an Ariadna TAG till then.
When C1 launched, there were no TAGS and then they added them in later. They might add a TAG for Ariadna later, stats-wise I mean.
Have you seen the Swast or Kriza next to a Blackjack or Ratnik. Both of them are only barely bigger than most S2 HI, the Blackjack and Ratnik are pretty much the same size as the Gecko and pretty much fill out the entire S6 template.
They are also saddled with the TAG penalties of reduced dodge. So why not just lean in on the rest of the TAG design and a toss a few positives in there too
I recently found out that Hollowmen are actually taller than Krizas :P
Krizas are one of the smallest S5 miniatures.
I kind of think this is the answer, even if it's kind of disappointing. Looking at what we have in the list and what we already know is in the starter, beyond, beast box, support pack and dire foes, we're down to eight units left. That covers two three-model boosters, the hero and the tag. It's possible that the "Tag" box will be both blackjacks repacked into a single box. Hopefully for about the same cost as a tag.
Some interesting stuff...the 112 is S2, so unless they put the old fireman into the box, we'll probably get a new sculpt of him. Uxia may be a repack, or it may be the shotgun profile. Be nice if it was option B in a hero pack.
Lots of Coldfront repacks, though (Scout w/ BSG, Vet Kazak w/ Rifle, Tank Hunter w/ Rifle. Strelok from Beyond). That makes sense, though, those are new models. I've got mine, but I'd still like to see the Rifle Line Kazaks get repacked for general sale.
that could lead us to a 3 years wait for a general release...
The dodgepenalty and the size are there to emphasize the lowtec faction of ariadna.
That said, I don't think the blackjacks or Ratnik will be TAGs. I honestly have no firm opinion on a TAG for Ariadna. Depends on many things.
I expect it to be a general release version of the defiance exclusive mini, probably with a different head and/or the shotgun:
There's already a general release mini of her with shotgun.
I think he meant the version that has MSV1 instead of the Assault Pistols (which look to have become Heavy Pistols in C1)
Already exist, Uxia SAS Corporal w/ Boarding shotgun
Whoops, thought they'd both been discontinued when the new one came out! From her weapon it looks like a CAD sculpt too.
Most likely it'll be one of those two going in a booster then.
No, I mean the shotgun in her hands, maybe hood down with the beanie from the old one...
Yeah. C1 has a few weapons left out so they swap in "close enough" alternatives.
You mean like this one?
(which is a semi-recent release and 3D esculpted since you all seem to be so worried about that)
This one is actualy Classic (hand) sculpted. Probably oldest ariadna model currently in production.
I though this was the oldest one
