    I think the smoke point holds water but I think the LGL makes it even more likely. I think indirect artillery is supposed to be part of DBS identity between the hunzakut lgl, druze em lgl, clipper that can be put in a link, and our targeting strata. A big face punchy toolboxy vetran dude just kinda... fits.

    We're 10 profiles short of Ikari Company and I've heard musings of more suprises for DBS. I could be wrong about the fasid but I'd be shocked if we didnt get something, especially considering Ikari gets both druze and brawlers and thats... well, the majority of our identity currently

    At Rumble there will be a video presentation done by Carlos. There was an ask the question thread and mine was "will DBS get more units?" and that was before the Uprising reveal and the question became much more relevant, so hopefully Tom approves my question and Carlos answers.

    I would love to see a unit pic, like we did for Ikari and Starco, for DBS.

    Druze work for/form a variety of mercenary companies, of which Druze Bayram Security is one of them. In theory, we might see Druze Solutions, Inc. or The Blues Druze Find the Clues Cruise Crew...

    Beyhan Resources is one of the main employers of Kaplan, though I think we'll also find them in other mercenary companies.

    You can see the Beyhan Resources logo here:

    Presented to illustrate the current unit disparity in DBS to the newly revealed Merc Sectorials.

    I don't know what I'd prefer; DBS keeping the current - limited, I agree - lineup, or getting new stuff.

    It's the most cohesive PMC right now.

    As someone who's committed, I would like to see a few more units. :)

    I do agree that they risk losing some identity of they went up to the unit counts of the other NA2.

    If I got to pick I would love to see the Al Fasid (like @Q.A.I. stated), a Krakot, and Sforza.

    It would be complete for me.

    I dont think were getting 10 extra profiles to put us on par with the other NA2, but a few extra would be nice. I think mixed links is gonna be one of the hallmarks of DBS so each profile is going to be considered carefully.

    One thing I'm hoping for is increased AVA for brawlers instead of extra profiles.

    With the Daiyokai getting a harris with 2 Domaru I can imagine a druze harris with a Fasid. I haven't seen anyone actually use a druze harris yet besides when I was experimenting with Arslan

    Harris in DBS is dubious with the prevalence of Duo. Especially with the Druze harris profile being such crap. Even the Brawler harris doesn't make a lot of sense to me in my lists.

    I agree, forgot to include the tail end of my statement suggesting that that may acually give the harris profile some use.

    Using a full 5 man fireteam has caused a lot of my lists to feel same-y because of the point costs. I'm hoping for some cheap profiles or a really potent harris to crack open my listbuilding. Duo swarm seems dubious without a strong beatstick to hold the center of the board

    At first I was annoyed with the Ikari list, but overall, I'm still loving the Druze lineup. Druze may lack the HI heavy hitters of Ikari, but instead we have great objective scoring units. I'd also be worried that adding more units to Druze means you'd see even less Druze in the lists! Really, right now, I'm not sure what I'd even want to cut from my lists to get the units that Ikari has access to. Maybe at best give us some bulleteers?

    hmm...having nice camo specs and panoc remotes- why not to play acontimento then? I'd love to see some Up for druze...like veteran L2 :) Because now, the less druze in druze list the more powerful it is.... ;(...

    I really like the current squad of Bayram, but to be honest, I'd also like to see some new units in Druze.
    I'd be glad if Bayram got some cheaper regular LI, even with limited AVA, or some Krakots (really miss them here). Something like Yuans would be great because of smoke, but I can understand the reasons why they're not here.
    Still it's a bit unfair that both of these units are in Ikari Company, and even with cheap LI.

    But don't give us more PanO stuff, no Buleteers please :P PainMakers are better and have more character ;)

    I'd like to be able to use my Kaplan, but they would need a bit of tweaking if that's our missing 10 profiles.

    DBS needs the following
    • Another 2-3 Lt profiles
    • a more robust AD unit with Combat jump
    • Another HD profile other than Gromoz
    • Better Doctors/Engineers. Brawlers are too basic, and Someone like Cordilia without Scarface.... Like the Kaplan.
    So if the tweaked Kaplan get HD and LT profiles, that just leaves an AD unit. The Akalis or Ragik covers the last bit.

    I can tell you why I'd like them in DBS.

    Firstly, it just feels to me like it would fit the Druze theme to use expendable, merciless, and berserk alien mercs that probably work for cheap in their forces. When I saw they were not included, I was surprised and chalked it up to xenophobia but with Le Meut that doesn't make sense.

    Yeah they are cheap Rambos in a force that doesn't have many options in that department. The forward deployment gels with what DBS already does well, it would give us one other DTW option that is inexpensive and disposable. Metachem gives us random movement shenanigans or abilities we don't have access to. Also one truly impetuous unit would be nice to up overall order counts especially in single battlegroup lists.

    Avicenna has zero sense fluff-wise in DBS. Druze are nasty. That's why she's in StarCo.

    Some kind of warband (yuan yuans fit perfectly) would be pretty useful bc 5-man MI Fireteams are too unwieldy to push forward. I can see Al'Fassids in too. Djanbazans have some reputation as soldiers doing freelance shady jobs from time to time, but I prefer them to stay just in QK: we need no more MI who contests Druze Shock troops place.
