    And just so we're clear:

    The reason I say this isn't because I don't want more female figures or whatever strawman argument someone might attempt to make. It's because I'm personally concerned that they're starting to go down the road of "Snipers always have to be female models, because that's a thing from movies and video games".

    It might be confirmation bias on my part, but I can't think of a non-character male sniper figure that has come out recently or is slated to come out. I'd be happy to be proven wrong though.

    You've actually made me go check the Nisse.
    He's male and IIRC replaced a female sniper.
    (plus Marauder sniper is a man)

    I actually have an issue with a Feuerbach shaped as a light weapon.
    As per its description it is a heavy support weapon that fires rockets. As per its other models mags on Aleph and Haqq versions clearly show the size of those projectiles, and it really looks like a smaller caliber ML.

    Why make it combi-rifle shaped? Pano sells a low-tech cumbersome version to Aleph? Not believing. The low tech and cumbersome version is the Haqq one, it looks much more massive in comparison, but the barrel is the same.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for "mistake" or "mk12-ish ORC". :cold_sweat:

    @kanluwen: Croc Man and Nisse snipers are still male ;)

    As for the Feuerbach: I'm a fan of Haqq FB design and I hope ours will be at least massive and distinct enough to sell the idea of what the weapon is, but I really need to wait and see a better quality pic.

    If it won't be to my satisfaction there's always the possibility of converting one. I'm sure there's quite a few old Azra'ils around...

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not arguing with the render, I just hope the description was wrong (or a wrong render under a correct description).

    I would suggest accepting that our feuerbach looks like a big mega rifle

    No, it’s the Feuerbach, just a different looking one. However, still looks to be much the same size as Teucer’s.

    I see it being about the same as the HMG most likely.

    It’ll depend on what options are around him, but likely yes.

    Depends on whether you can get a 5-man core with cheap fillers rather than all Orcs, or if it comes with a secondary weapon making it worth taking/running solo.

    hmm I suppose it does depend on the options/link options. But imho for active turn purposes I think the HMG is the way to go.

    Something like this might be expected:

    2.5 SWC | 91 Points

    see I'd rather have the HMG if this is going to be my Harris attackers. I'd rather rock the Kamau MSR for ARO purposes. I think the ORC F-bach has some stiff competition

    If you check on the Securitate, FB is one point above HMG. So, 45 points.

    I actually really like the Feuerbach look. I mean i love the Aleph/Haqq one, I love it so much I mounted it on my Uhlan undertaking beneath the HMG.

    But I love the high tech look of this thing and I cannot wait to see the HQ render. Gimme 2 pls.

    Though on the Thorakite it's exactly the same cost as the HMG.
    Frankly, the Securitate look like they under-pay for their stats, so I'm inclined to think that point is rounding up rather than an indication that the HMG is cheaper.

    (while the Azra'il it's 1 point more than an HMG and SWC discounted...joy)

    Yeah, but I asked for recent ones. ;)

    Also I hate this new quote system.
