    I think the older kaplan sculpts hold up really well. They are still some of my favourites in the entire range. That said, I would definitely buy another box of them, and I can see why someone might not want to purchase older sculpts if possible.

    @colbrook where could I find a description of the Tensho? Is it in Daedalus' Fall?
    I looked in the Army and saw that it had a different profile: are you thinking a Keisotsu + Kempeitai/securitate + grenzer type box?

    @HotFreshTofu I am a new player(first infinity model in may 2019, first game .... ) and would like to have the collection as homogenous as possible and since there have been several "waves" of scale/proportion I don't know where N3 standard starts and I believe the Kaplans were from the shifting period...(?)

    Indeed
    Yep, it's a counts as Nox for Fireteams, only has one loadout, and would perfectly complement a hacker+sniper+HMG box.

    LGLs seem to be rare in SWC boxes for whatever reason, and paramedic/FO don't need their own sculpt (we've been doing perfectly well without them for the past decade+) so HMG+sniper+hacker+Tensho is my "ideal" Nox Box.

    Thank you for your sacrifice :D

    I can confirm that the list is:

    • Zencha (SMG)
    • Namurr (Spitfire)
    • Kaplan box (new sculpts!)
    • Nox box

    Now that I think about it, new Kaplans might be good proxies for bounty hunters in my OSS...

    Hmm. Namurr is going to be one of those minis that I'd love to add to the list, but would fail to find a compelling reason to take over other choices..

    Depending on sculpts this could be really cheap for me. Or very expensive XD

    Exactly how I feel about them. Really well rounded and robust profile on paper, but only ends up taking advantage of a small portion of it's kit in any given game. Then again, there is something to be said about in always being able to make use of SOME part of your kit, no matter the scenario.

    I think the Namurr is a really strong solo attack piece. But I think the spitfire one also really shines in a Janissary link. Provides a great template E/M attack to handle targets weak to that. Covers the mid range great and a back up to the HMG, provides another specialist, can reliably clear out mines and perimeter weapons, adds D-charges and can also help engage exotic ammo types.

    No kidding. I'm so happy I didn't try and convert one from a 2nd bsg. Here's hoping the arms won't be a pain to varry the pose of.
