    Spiral Corps was created with the mission of hunting down the Shasvastii, so really what kind of sense does a Tohaa/Shasvastii box make?

    Sure, just like in the case of MRRF, eh? Models aren't available locally because of the prolonged lack of support / releases, the TwoHaa drops in 4-6 weeks, are you sure you can still order these SKUs from CB? I've made a quick purchase in a local store and was very lucky, but few other people will be.

    Where is the certainty about resculpts coming from? We know CB will not touch MRRF for years, Caledonians are also frozen "as is". It very much seem vanilla Tohaa is in the same bag, now there will be new Spiral profiles and models for them, even though there are many missing variants of old sculpts (listed below your post).

    So the complaints have shifted from "No models for over a year...I want to buy new stuff" to "I don't have all of the models yet and they will be going away!" Lamenting the loss of something you've had the ability to buy but didn't and now maybe won't be able to is strange to me. CB has been releasing armies at a hefty clip recently. I don't think there is any problem with being optimistic in the thread about _optimism_ .

    Well if the box is set before/during the gate falling and the forming of the Corps is a reaction to that afterwards it could fit.

    But they even stop producing and providing a Tohaa Starter. With this, CB is nearly deleting the faction from the awareness of new players. I don't think that this will end up in resculpts...

    But you're right:
    Sorry for all that negative spirit. I really like most of the new sculpts.
    But will i really trust CB in buying the new "experimental" stuff again, after never having my first faction incompleted? (Codename Taquel)

    As a new player, my awareness of Tohaa (and my willingness to buy them) has a only grown with today’s news.

    Thank you for your concern for us noobs, but your concern is misplaced on my behalf.

    I was being sarcastic about my skepticism about the battle box containing those two. It makes perfect sense, and means CB can cover both the factions that currently do not have a split box without having to double up on any of the other factions.

    Don't let the white knights and fanbois bully you into silence. If you're dissatisfied, speak up!

    Or that's what Tohaa say. Too bad they are Triumvirate members...

    Hey, they will have to do it from time to time just to keep up appearances.

    ATM the overall SKU is reduced of the cost of the Tohaa. We had never a problem with the targeted SKU per faction for them. The store counts atm 29 SKU for Tohaa, who will be reduced to 15 with the new Box. If we get a new release every two month like bevor the sabbatical 1 1/2 year, we will be at 19 at the end of the year.
    We will see what will happen.

    There are a couple of threads doing just that. This one was trying to look at the positives and he politely stepped away for that reason.

    Optimistic that the 2 player box will be a vanilla tohaa starter or a different tohaa sectoral force. Tohaa Vs sygma or something could be interesting

    If we get a Shas starter before then that could be a possibility. Sygmaa being sent into Paradiso by the EI specifically to tempt marooned Tohaa over?

    More like to exterminate them. Sygmaa is highly motivated to eliminate the armed forces of a government they view as tyrannical.

    That said, I doubt we shall get that. I'm expecting a Tohaa (spiral corps) vs Shas box set.

    Everything will be fine.

    I don’t understand why they discontinue some new miniatures like Sukeuls(I hope they do repack that girls. :) ) but still, I believe they will makes some resculpt for Tohaa. As you know, discontined miniatures mostly old sculpts. Like Tohaa Starter Pack. Damn old.

    Am I too naive? XD I don’t know.

    Not sure where my complaints "shifted" as I never said a thing about Tohaa before. You've just set up a classic strawman and started bashing on it. Calling a legitimate complaint "lamenting" and trying to cast me as an overtly emotional, unreasonable whiner is also another golden classic. You don't come across as someone replying in good faith, you know?

    The main point is that up unti l today I was able to delay any Tohaa purchases indefinitely. Today's news have forced me to buy all the sculpts I liked on the chopping block, because they are literally evaporating as we watch - even though I haven't managed to do any sort of reasonable research into how they played until now and though we have no idea of the changes to profiles and synergies coming in two weeks in the next large Army update.

    If that's not something to complain about...

    Hi all!
    First of all I’m happy to see new army box of Tohaa. At least it contains 2 must have profiles. And 10(11) awesome models. So I’m happy with it!

    Second, I think that we will gain new force in new box set and that would be Triumvirate can Shavasti. That would be like time to reveal triumvirate themselves to save Tohaa from the Shavasti and CA and they have to do this. So Tohaa would take new box and some new profiles. After this in N3 most of the Tohaas die at the big war with CA/or Daedalus Gate closed for foreign and we would have some rebalance of the faction with Ava, cost, weapons.

    So be optimistic!

    They discontinued the whole Tohaa faction, except for the ones that will be in Spiral corps. Sukeul, Sakiel, Makaul won't be there, which sucks, because these were top tier Tohaa troops.
    If CB just wanted to reduce SKU, they could start packing stuff together, most of the troops were single blisters, at least they started this with some. There (were) still Sukeul, Kosuil, Kotail, Gao tarsos, there are some sculpts, where one is in the starter, another comes in a separate blister like Ectros, Sakiel, Clipsos.
    It's odd call this year of the Tohaa, then squash the Tohaa, but whatever, CB has odd squashing policies (like all the Nomads are still active, but nobody cares about nomads, Steel Phalanx is entirely of old sculpts and pretty complete sectorial, NCA is mostly old and complete, Scotts are just old, MO is a failure again).
