    So Hollow Men are synchronized? Was this leaked before and I missed it?
    Neither Pi-Well and the Dakinis are synchronized, just bipedal REM. And Dakinis are sported in the Aleph Starter.

    Yeah, I also have assumed the hollow men will come in packs, much like the ├╝berfallkommando...
    But I think I'm wrong in my feelings here...

    Rumors I heard in my infinity group... it might not be the same unit...

    I would be so happy if we got any of this, minus CSU.

    Well, we know we'll be seeing Hollow Men, and Bostria confirmed at a seminar they have holoprojectors. We also know that there will be Tactical Puppets and NauticalZonds, whatever they are, and I think it was said two more troops on top?

    Add that to Securitate and that's a highly respectable selection of troops in addition to the REMs and presumably the Daktari/Clockmakers as line specialists. Takes us too... 21 by my count? Bakunin sized!

    GenCon last year, he was asked about then in the Q&A (I was there)

    He said that you shoot them and it just passes through, nothing there, holoprojector, hence Hollow Men.

    I'm quite new to the forums... Were the Tactical Puppets or the Nautical Zonds mentioned in a presentation as well? Or are they just vox populi?

    I really want some beasty Heavy REMs and some helpful support REM's, something that Links up with Szally and makes sure she is Ok and can do her job. And something all new than Nomad don't have now, new weapons and skills.

    Chain of command would be pretty nice.

    CSU AVA1-2 and Authorized Bounty Hunters AVA1-2 would also fit nicely into the Tunguskan fluff. Bodyguards of some shady Businessmen/Mobster plus Bountys placed on the heads of some unlucky guys.

    Make Securitate a SK profile and make authorized bounty hunters regular and core. Do it

    While burst 6 would be awesome it would be highly OP. And duo is just worthless.

    My idea is more like a TinBot X that does something to help. A small REM that an Engineer can engineer through that auto follow Szally, probably would be a tad OP though. =)

    my guess for our LI unit would be child soldiers like uhahu from the outrage manga, lets face it spekters, grenzers, interventors, are way to elite to serve as cheer leaders, and securitate will probably gets scraped or redesigned, which makes the use of child soldiers for that job as a great option and it is a great excuse to put them at relatively low cost much like the caledonian volunteers.

    I doubt they'll have the guts to make actual child soldiers (even more so for cheap meat shields). Still, it would be nice to have some age diversity on minis in a faction where you have to work since childhood to pay for air you breathe (would be funny if they made them S1). I can already see some maintenance duty kids from corregidor.

    Here is some wishlisting for Tunguska
    1) ability to possess enemy R.E.M.'s.
    2) attachable programmed tin bots. So you can attached it to a TAG/HIto give it some supportware for example. Maybe a very specific programs for that
    3) mixable links. Tsyklon in a link, lunokhod in a link. Maybe even TR bot
    4) Holoprojector/CoC
    5) a new skirmisher
