    It's really weird that people think Sval and White Banner will come out soon.

    Yeah I don't understand it, there haven't been any hints in what I've seen. Moving the storyline up on Sval is surely the next arc, after 3O and the Shasvastii incursion stuff we're expecting this year.

    Do we even have an idea what units would show up in them both beyond the few that still haven't got sectorials? Nisse and Jotums for Sval, Hac Tao, Guilang and Daofei for WB?

    I really doubt and wonder why people think Corregidor will be discontinued. Too many crucial and high sales units like the Intruder. There are other sectorials that are better candidates.

    For me, I wasn't sure what would happen to Corregidor. You are right with the unit analyse, but the player base of that sectorial is very low

    I think with the new rules it will get a high boost. I see Tunguska being more problematic outside of LI events.

    Love the Patsy model! Hot take, is the tactical slope becoming the new tactical rock/garbage? ;-)

    Thumps up for Corregidor. But for NCA and QK (I assume, QH in the screen shot should read QK) I want to point out, that FRRM also got an update as a farwell gift.

    DF box with Knauf & Arslan is no good info. That means no Patsy/Tai Box :-( and it´s not well done with the LE Knauf, becaue all outrage-buyers have to buy him twice, if the want Arslan :-( that would be not customer friendly. Lucky I have Knauf already and don´t start a druze army soon.

    Maybe because people want this sectorials? Pure wishful thinking, but if you ask I would liked Svarlaheima before Varuna and Banner before IA.

    Does this mean Tunguska is being discontinued @Bostria :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Maybe this means an update to both profiles? I would maybe take them more often, if this were the case.

    Then maybe people should stop saying things like "when Sval and White Banner come out next year".

    We are 50/50 for updated armies getting shelved or not. MO and Morats are still in production. MRRF and Acon at out. Not exactly a solid trend to follow for speculating

    What was really strange was the circumstance that Acon had mostly new models and was shelved. I would have bet on MO when they hadn't released new boxes for them last year. But it seems to sell to well. Imo the overhaul was a downgrade to them cause I liked the Hospitaller Magister link.
    Luckily I didn't buy them last year.

    Military Orders are a favorite with the staff at CB, purportedly. Shock Army didn't seem to have that extra layer of protection.

    Shame because Shock Army are way more interesting than yet another Space Knights army.

    So if QK is getting a retirement update in ARMY, it might be the appropriate time to propose updates to lift it to tournament tier considering how bland and sucky they are right now.

    Step 1) Hafza is a completely unrestricted wildcard, that includes going back to merc links.

    Step 2) Haris profiles for everything, with the skill on useful models. Haris used to be their thing. EVERYTHING. Even the mercs. ESPECIALLY THE MERCS.

    Step 3) Djans count as ghulams for for for fireteam composition and Ghulams count as Djans for fireteam composition

    Step 4) NCO on suckban.

    Step 5) Azrail can form haris with two Hafza

    Step 6) Odalisque specialist, ideally hacker. White noise upgrade if you want to go crazy.

    Ah, thanks. I'd forgotten about that.



    No more than we knew about models for IA 9 months ago, though you can add Zanshi, Tigers, and Shaolin to the list for WB.
