    Maybe we'll get O12 as a whole faction and the first sectorial to unlock is the "Bureau Aegis"

    *EDIT: It will be actually really interesting to see if O12 gets a vanilla faction and will be very telling where the game is headed.

    Aegis, Noir, and Toth all seem ripe for Sectorialisation, as overt, covert, and mixed with Aleph respectively for character.

    Isn't Bureau Aegis basically Bureau Double Action? DA Pistol as standard issue.

    Yay O-12! Can't wait to see the minis and if I'll want any!

    For those interested, in the RPG, you usually play Bureau Noir agents. They are the only bureau allowed to recruit from anywhere in the Human Sphere and they get a lot of leniency due to the range of operations they take part of. If anything, I think a Bureau Noir Sectorial might have rules to allow to use basically any unit. As a sort of "make you own team" type of gameplay.

    So basically, it would be cashgrabby garbage?

    Yeah. No thanks on Bureau Noir if that's the case. If anything, it would be a SpecOps. You can't make any real case for them to exist as anything but as an "agent".

    When I hear Bureau Aegis, I have an image of 40k Grey Knights in suits with ties, can't help it.

    Yeah I'm not sure about being able to take any unit – I can't imagine that would be easy to balance.

    If we were to theoretically get a bureau noir, I would imagine it would a lot of intelligence units we haven't seen yet. maybe some aleph too.

    The Bureau Noir is probably what the Defiance crew is.

    O-12 gets a Wildcard Troop for use in every faction! Now that would totally screw all speculations here.

    I would imagine, at least for a start, only Bureau Aegis, specifically Section Spatha forces, just for simplicity's sake. Maybe a Noir agent or two as Infiltrators/Skirmishers, but likely mostly the forces that lock down conflicts.

    That's pretty much what it is. It's not just intelligence unit or spies. It's teams geared for the job. It can be full HI, even TAGs or a team of hackers and anything.

    Exactly this.

    And as a few others have said, against an alien invader all bets are off and 'illegal/war crime' weapons would not be held back and probably used en mass by the what is the 'official' military of the human sphere. I'm expecting to see alot of EM weapons from them.

    I think its suppose to be a multi pistol but DA rounds are probably the highlight of that.

    Really got my fingers crossed for these guys to look awesome.

    I'm thinking if the Combined are the main threat, then O-12 would have lots of E/M! Mainly for stopping thing like Mnemonica. High BTS too in case of Sepsitor.

    Red Veil YJ starter would work for White Banner.


    Better toys than the Marut has.

    PanO doesn't deploy them because the Zetas are too expensive for the numbers PanO needs.


    Please, don't give CB any ideas!

    The Guijia really needs some interesting stats/equipment/abilities to go along with the awesome model.


    I've seen it before, but don't have a copy of the list saved on this computer. It's a pretty damn impressive list of 'banned' items, and a very short list of allowed weapons.

    Correction, PanO doesn't field them because reasons that don't really actually matter given the justifications.

    We could have seen them for ages now as AVA1 units in NCA, being an elite unit of TAGs.

    Why is everyone so sure the super TAG is coming right now? If it is the pic, I think it is a S5 figure not a TAG.

    Will love to see the reveal of any O-12 miniatures, just not sure the TAG’s day has come.
