Aaah, me too.
But we have to make do ;)
Yes, QK don't care if mercs they employ are good guys, bad guys or worse, but I'm not sure they like mercs who drop them during the defense of one of their major asset on Paradiso (not that would have made a big difference at the end).
And don't forget all the Silk lors ready to employ mercs (or even Djanbazans) to fullfil their own agenda.
It's more a question of reliability here and the impact it would have on the relations between QK and Druze.
Is the Sultan still seing Druze as professional now?
Anyway, it's just a little blurb of fluff I found funny to read more than once and I agree it may not have impact on Druze being in QK.
Well, before the N4 release but after all those crazy mish-mashed fireteams in WB I imagined myself an updated Azrails upgraded with Duo and Heavy Pistols and a new profile: Haris, Tinbot A, Mk12, 0.5 SWC and of course cheaper in points than two existing. Maybe with DTW of a kind.
Now, when we know CB had embedded the haris rule it has less sense and Janissaries having the rule even less... But 0 SWC Mk12 HFT still could be funny though not sport-oriented. And thematic: expelled from elite corps because the new Sultan does not trust them and cube-enabled after the exile, geared with cluncky out-of-date heavy armour with pointing system also dusty (thus BS13) but still deadly and frightening :)
But we're back to the problem: it'd warrant a new model. And as long as QK is in the freezer, I am strongli convinced we shouldn't expect new models.
I'm fairly sure its an 'As Is' update. I'm not expecting any real changes to AVA, just a couple unit updates (Djanbzan & Sekban) and new fireteam options. We MAY get new guys if other Haqq sectorals get a them (ex Ranham & Wildbill). I'm hoping Scarface and Cordialia can Duo, but not expecting it.
I think we might expect new profiles for existing units, but ones that would not warrant new sculpts. I.e. new skills, absolutely. New ammo types, sure. New equipment, well, that's tricky. New weapons - not likely, really.
Of course, we had the HRL Hafza in N3, who never had a model. So there's that...
Dude. I'm supposed to be the downer. :)
Sorry, that role is already occupied :P
Seriously though - I'm trying to apply a dose of realism here :)
Like a faint breath near the oasis...
The djinn laughing...
Is there an exact date QK is to release?
Still "Late November"
The most plausible target date I've heard suggested is the 20th, because that's when the new ITS box goes on sale.
Well, sounds reasonable.
Notable stuff in new QK
- New Azra’il. No link options outside of a duo with a bot, but BS attack +1 damage and Continuous damage with the same weapon load outs at slight cost increase. Better CC and 4-4 move too. Slightly more expensive now.
- Sekban get NCO
- Djan get regen on a PH 13. 4 pt increase for the shock marksman :( lower costs for the HMG and hacker.
- Wild Bill counts as a Jannissary, and can be part of a Kaplan link.
- Hafza FO and HRL got 1 point cheaper??
I really wonder if Continuous damage is a mistake or not, because that's insane!
Extra burst on the FB profile is all I hoped for, the extra damage is a nice surprise.
Djanbazan sniper has changed his regular sniper rifle for an AP sniper rifle and gets shock with it, that's nice to have.
Other interesting observation, burst 2 chain colts for Sekbans and Alguaciles count as Ghulams.
It isn't a mistake.
I'm only dissapointed with hafza profile. For troops trained in military academy, I expected some rules related with leadership, like number 2 or NCO.
Odaliscas are wildcard, like other sectorials.
our wilcard can link with Azrail, like bots (something expected seen al fasid).
No hortlak janni :(.
Yuan Yuan only ava 3, los 1 ava if my memory serves well. His combat jump is now reduced to 11.
I don't know how usefull will be alguaciles in ghulam teams, but is good to have.
In general i'm happy how KQ looks, except for hafza.
Yeah was hoping for maybe even counter intelligence on Hafzas, but oh well.
Sweet! The Feuerbach profile is gonna see a lot of use in my lists.
