    I might be wrong but if I remember properly duty squads only exist in Corregidor.
    Not a word from them in the other motherships...

    So just asking a question for the friend who split the Ice Storm box with me. I know the firm answer is no one knows for sure so I'm asking for a speculative answer in a speculative thread: What is the likelihood of Tunguska getting released as one of the mystery 4 this year? I thought it was all but certain given the Borac, the Szalamandra and the Spektr repack. But it seems Bostria mentioned on the Rumble video that Nomad release schedule for the year was Bakunin updates? That doesn't bode well.

    They most likely will get a sectorial list, but maybe not that many actual minis, they might arrive in 2019 then.

    It was said they may release Tunguska by the end of the year but it was not sure, depending on release schedule (and they are already late with aristeia...). So maybe end of autumn 2018 but more likely winter 2019

    Is that some inside info or just a beautiful dream?

    Nomads are one of the top factions with the biggest number of players so IIRC they wanted to make a strong release for them. That led me to the assumption that Tunguska will probably be left for the last N of the year. Christmas?

    Bakunin is almost done, Zoe and Pi-Well, Kusanagi, Riot Spitfire and at some point the Lizard will come. They should be able to fit that in before the last N of the calendar. They probably won't replace all the models (e.g. I think that Bran may get the same treatment as the Moran, even though we're after the Corregidor 'era').

    Not quite: Bostria said they've been in Bakunin mode and will be shifting into Tunguska mode. In fact, that shift has already begun (see,e.g., Kriza Borac and Szally). I'm of the view that they'll be part of the sectorial releases in late summer/fall 2018 (probably via an army box ala JSA). I could be wrong, of course, but that's my sense of things.

    Kusanagi? Are you talking about a new one?
    Perhaps not, don't know when it came out but I'd really would like a new, not very found of the current one. =/

    Yeah we already got some sweet new stuff for Tunguska, and in Bakunin there's not much I expect to get redone. Maybe a Riot Spitfire blister and a Lizard, and maybe 1-2 things here and there, but we're definitely in that transition point between the two.

    I am hoping for an Army Box this year, myself, but even if they're not in 2018 I think that they will be in the Army Box format at some point.

    Basically there's RTF, Tunguska, Varuna, OSS, Kazaks and IA that people are waiting on as the obvious next Sectorals. Four of those will be this year, I think whatever is left will be next year myself.

    Incidentally I took the below list today against a quite flexible and balanced Onyx force, and it worked great. We played firefight, and I have to say that Spektrs and Kriza Boracs between them really can clear out most troops, finesse and firepower respectively, with Interventors a Clockmaker and a Daktari providing fantastic generally high WIP specialists, and a bunch of REMs to give support. The only thing I felt was slightly under-strength was the Grenzer Sniper, who felt pinned down for much of the game, but he didn't die and also I think when linked they will be seriously scary!

    I've tried "Tunguska-like" lists in the past and this is quite a good one. Of course, they're all underpowered because we don't have a sectorial yet...
    I would switch the Grenzer SR for a ML just to scare my oponent's fireteams a bit, and also buy the clockmacker a zondbot...

    I think that there will be an updated Ice Storm box with Tunguska and Varuna. This gets the two sectorial’s in one Big N release and lines up perfectly with the Beyond Ice Storm minis.

    That would be awesome, if it happens! I would love for a Tunguska/Varuna battlebox...

    Think hard who tonguska is than you will know why it is not past them to use child soldiers as cannon fodder, as for CB they already made the first child soldier model (Uhahu) in the outrage kit so they have already stepped over the line.

    Well technically Uhahu in that box is not a child soldier, she is manga character with rich dark background. Take notice there are no weapon sculpted on miniature. Applying straight up child soldiers miniatures box (with weapons and all the stuff) is completely different animal in eyes of public society.
    So far only theme where children with guns were present is zombie apocalypse one. But even there they are survivors, not soldiers.

    It has been officialy said that CB wasn't sure Tunguska will get out late 2018 or early 2019 so it's unlikely it will be in the next two player box. Kazak is more likely.

    it is stupid easy to add weapons to a model thanks to 3d sclupting which is what CB is using to make thier 3rd edition minis and it is far from uncommon for animes to have children with guns and other weapons on the front line and infinity is strongly anime inspired so yeh expect more cat/fox girls and children with guns or even piloting tags

    Of course I expect more cat/fox girls and children hackers/engineers/tag pilots, but I`ve just finished playing Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain and child soldiers ... it`s gross!
