I think the ment the "first" new Nomad Spitfire from the Anaconda Pilot
I actually really like that the Nomads weaponry are variants of the same model. It reminds me of the XM8
Oh, what a wasted opportunity to make sniper as well with extra arm...
In my case, absolutely. The repeater alone in Tunguska is very handy for Mary or your Interventor to use, but IMO most fireteams should take a shotgun if they can. It's all about the +6 when something is pushing on you up close.
There's still three more profiles without models, so who knows what will happen!
Combi Rifle with Repeater, Paramedic, and MSR. Just for those playing from home. And if you want to argue about the Repeater, remember that the Boarding Shotgun with Repeater model actually has it modeled. It's the 'bump' on the back of her vest.
If we're lucky, we'll get something like the Shasvastii did where it includes a SpecOps model.
Now you want TWO securitate boxes while Grenzers have none??? That would be outrageous!
I don't think paramedic or repeater even needs a separate model, you'll never see these tiny bits while playing anyway. The weapon on the other hand is clearly visible, and it would be very easy to make a sniper out of this sculpt just by replacing a weapon in hands.
I hope we'll get another mixed SWC box grenzer & securitate, but can wait for now, well till N4 hits.
Who knows what will happen, grenzer are crap atm, I would not buy until they fix them.
Grenzer spitfire, Grenzer ML, Grenzer boarding shotgun and securitate MSR.
Surprisingly, it's pretty notable when one thing has it and another doesn't. While yeah, the part itself is 'tiny'--it sticks out like a hat on a dog.
Worth mentioning in any regards that Grenzers are missing 5 profiles, with 2 being duplicates beyond potential small tidbits.
-Boarding Shotgun with Biometric Visor L1
-Combi Rifle w/ LFT Sensor, FO profile
Given that Nomads are slated for 2021 to get the Code One treatment, it's possible we'll see some of the missing Securitate and Grenzer profiles addressed as part of that push.
We have the mini for this profile, It's in securitate SWC box.
Forward Observers now have a bit modeled on their weapons, so no we do not.
It's possible you've missed them since they have been putting them in the painting sets.
Additionally, "Sensor" seems to be a thing that is likely to be modeled as well.
Yes, we do, it's labeled in infinity store.
1x Securitate (HMG)
1x Securitate Hacker (Hacking Device) (HMG)
1x Securitate (Repeater) (Boarding Shotgun)
1x Grenzer (Forward Observer, Sensor) (Combi Rifle + Light Flamethrower)
Cool, so then we need a CR+LFT profile for the Grenzer rather than the FO, Sensor.
Additionally? I'm going to flatout say that it's another case of "mislabeled packaging" for that product info. Wouldn't be the first time, won't be the last. Grenzer has no FO bits modeled nor is the facemask different.
Don't we have CR+FLT Grenzer in Securitate box?
Another question is - how often we need most of Grenzer configurations? I think ML, BS and Spitfire are good candidates for box... On the other hand, how often you use Grenzers and in what configuration. I think only in Securitate link with ML or Sensor/FO.
Yes, this is literally the point being made:
Forward Observers have been, for most of the releases in 2019, getting modeled with a new gubbin on their rifle and some kind of 'eyepiece' that connects to it. Maybe people are unaware of it because they're locked away in paint sets(which is dumb but whatever), but it's a thing that's happening.
The claim was made that it's the Forward Observer just because the store bit says so--which ignores that there have been instances where the store and even the picture on the box are the wrong items.
If you check the release date on the paint set, the first time, ever, where FO was sculpted on a model, then you would see it was after the the release of the Securitate + Grenzer box.
It's weird as fuck to claim that CB has mislabelled their box, by saying they lack something that was released at a later date.
If you'd ask me what we will see in 2021 I'd say: Some Corregidor and some Bakunin (Nuns) models. Tunguska is up to date atm, but Bakunin and Corregidor is getting "old". So that would be my guess for 2021 C1.
Bakunin have all new designs. Maybe Corregidor needs some new models with new design weapons, but what we will se in 2021 will be new box of news Zond REMs. Current design is 12+ years old, just like standard REMs of YJ and PO.
My money is on a new CJC starter. Algs + Intruder + Hellcat + MB.
New Zonds, Meteor and Support Box.
New Wildcats and Morans.
Don't think so. Alguaciles just like Moderators, have new design with new modular weapons. There are new Intruders also. Maybe some Wildcats redesign. But Morans and Zonds are must. Very old, very popular and very ugly models.
As a counterpoint, I present Fusis and Zanshi.
It isn't that Algs need a resculpt it's that the Nomad starters need to be redesigned. By moving to CJC, BJC and TJC starters with no Vanilla you set up Nomads for Code One better. You get the same paradigm we're seeing with Sval and WB.
And the CJC starter is showing its age.
