    So for April we think: Big Box of some kind, Patsy, Knauf, Zondnautica?

    Most likely just the box & book if we look at the JSA/Uprising release last year. Patsy, Knauf, and ZN are likely further out, especially as only Knauf has had a sculpt shown.

    Would be happy to be wrong though.

    Dare we hope that an Orc SWC box is on the cards and Patsy is an arm/head swap option for the female body?
    (naturally the tinbot will fill out the 4th model just to make people fume)

    Was it 2 years ago they came out with was Outrage at Adepticon? So could be the new Manga they said they were doing. I don't think they will come out with another big background book so soon after Third Offensive.

    For a box I'm thinking Ramah. I'd love a dual box of Ramah and Shasvastii though.

    Bostria has already confirmed it will be the 3rd book wrapping up the story arc set in motion with Uprising. I am expecting it will launch Shasvastii, Ramah, Triumverate, and some other NA2. It will also contain the Tunguska background as that was missing from 3rd Offensive, (on that same note, I hope it has background for Morats, since 3rd Offensive already covered Shasvastii).

    As for the box, I am not expecting it will be Ramah.

    I anticipate this is exactly on-target.

    Hoping for Patsy too, though i wouldn't be surprised if she was further off.

    ORCs are a big question mark. I dunno if the data from Army really encourages building a box. Most VIRD lists I've seen use Patsy (getting her own mini) or a single ORC (of which there are quite a few existing sculpts, with people using the Fuerbach as an HMG.)

    Both the VIRD and IA NCOs are so useful to their Sectorials, part of me hopes they both get released ASAP. Even a Dire Foes style box would be welcome, if it gets them on the table (we did see a civvie render, though that could also the the limited edition mini for the Adepticon box too?)

    Yeah, I have heard the idea bandied about because both units have a Dire Foes Spec Ops feel to them, but the release of Patsy's Dossier without seeing Tai Sheng makes me wonder if they will be single blisters. Though there would be something amazing about a 2 heavy infantry Dire Foes Box.

    The previews getting parsed out across multiple cons makes it tricky to anticipate a full release schedule. Not seeing Tai Sheng could mean she's not developed... Or it could mean she's already designed, but we won't see her until the seminar video for the next big Satellite.

    Either way, I'm thrilled that Patsy's on the design radar. I was nervous she wasn't going to get attention for months and months.

    Patsy vs Tai Dire Foes would be a great box to hit two birds with one stone with story.

    Shasvastii I am betting are going to be a Operations Box with Tohaa at GenCon.

    As for the box release at Adepticon, we could see either Ramah, or another NA2 army. I could see either one, as it would let them release a new army box to release the new models for the new profiles in Ramah (as they still need a few). I do not believe it to be a 300 points box, just an army box like JSA.

    Given that it has been 2 years between each of the other 3 Operation boxes I'm expecting something different myself.
