    Fair point :P

    Does anyone know what's more expensive formula-wise out of Regeneration on one hand and Automedikit + Shock Immunity on the other?

    You know MSV is a war crime in Shas culture, right?

    I was talking with some friends about what they might do to the Shas rule - perhaps make it like a 1 point discount but instead of its old effect its just "always fails Guts rolls."

    TBH i would not be surprised if lack of MSV2 continued to be a thing, but some MSV1 would be nice.
    However, I think Shas should get access to Sensor on a few of their units.

    Do you think Shas will get passed over this con since Triumverate is the big release?

    I reckon they'll be like Invincibles were. Fluff and sectorial info in the book, but with models a few months later.

    What do we think the silhouette is? My initial thought was a Sphinx but I'm not too sure.

    Good call, didn't think of those. The wings/spines on the back could definitely be a jump pack.

    My initial thought was a cadmus, but it does look rather sphinxy

    It does, but Sphinx is still one awesome looking TAG. I'd rather see rest of the sectorial redesigned to resemble it more closely...

    The spiky thing on the on the back of the sphinx is more of a central dorsal fin. This thing has it's fins sticking out more to the side. Also the sphinx has more of a hunch back posture than this thing. It's head sits lower. I think that this is something else Possibly a jump trooper and possibly more heavily armoured than a regular shasvastii.

    Perhaps I have too much phantasy, but I see a TAG like the Caskuda.

    Great Idea! A soldier that is able to adjust to the requirements of the mission at hand:

    METACHEMISTRY LEVEL X
    • Immediately after placing the first trooper with MetaChemistry LX on the table for deployment, the player may choose one extra MOD or Special Skill from the Metachemistry Level X Table. This choice counts for all troopers with MetaChemistry LX in this army list during this mission.
    • MetaChemistry LX cannot be combined with other Levels of Metachemistry.
    1. Regeneration
    2. Bioimmunity
    3. Natural Born Warrior
    4. Multiterrain
    5. Climbing Plus
    6. Superjump
    7. Superior Mobility (MOV: 6-4)
    8. Reinforced Biotech (+6 BTS)
    9. Reinforced Physique (+3 PH)
    10. V: NWI

    I as well see something heavier. The bulky torso with the slim hands fits more for a big mini, would be a bit weird looking as a S2 mini.

    Well, they are redoing the models. Presumably they wanted them to stop looking like skinny dudes in wetsuits.

    I'm really interested to see the new design. I was never a fan of the skinny dudes.
