    I think it's much more probable that Aleph will get a second sectorial, than both PanO and Ariadna will get a fourth one.

    No to mention that unit-wise OSS is almost done.

    Are the people calling for Shasvastii in the know that bostria said no Shasvastii on the calendar? Like hes flat out said they are not currently planned. The earliest we would see them i 2019. RTF, Varuna, Tunguska, and Invincibles are actively getting models and reworks now, so I believe those are almost 100% this year. Vedic is getting some work but not as much, but I do believe we will see them late this year. Kazaks have been getting some mention, but I have also not kept up on them.

    My predictions are:
    Varuna
    Tunguska
    Invincible
    Ramah
    Vedic/Kazak (I could see either at the end of the year BUT USARF just came out last year, and besides Tohaa, Aleph only has one Sectorial compared to the normal 2)

    Tohaa are in a good place. Right now they just need models to fill out their roster and maybe a unit or two (a good normal camo infil would go a long ways). Tohaa rank well in the ITS's they join, and they reported good win percentage in the global campaign. They have low numbers more than likely due to their small unit selection, and almost predictable play style.

    Also of note is that the Mercs book coming out will have a handful of "Sectorials" that do not count towards this number.

    So in any case, regardless of what we get 2018 will end with more choice than we can shake a stick at, with a around 8-10 new sectorial armies, we will have 50% more options going into 2019 (counting all 24 current faction options).

    If icestorm is being replaced, then I can see the idea of swapping it out for a sectorial Vs sectorial version of itself as a possible solution.

    Varuna and Tunguska in a battlebox.
    Ramah and invincibles in a 300 point box each, because depending on how you do that, it's either all existing models or very few new ones.
    TAK as an army box, because honestly we know that Ariadna won't get a 300 box because those boxes have 10 models, which Ariadna can do, but more as an exception than the rule...

    The Tohaa box was also all existing models, and I don't think many of the existing TAK models will be around much longer either, so unless CB want to do it as stock clearance...

    Plus I think there was something about the 300pt boxes not including the starter set in future, so that new players can buy both and have options without doubling up on models, and the Ariadna starter is definitely showing its age...

    That said, if the starter is in the 300, it's the right settup, and it comes with a 4 model box of veterans to make the core team:

    That's kinda pie in the sky to me though, and more likely we'll see the starter, a scout, an irmandino, and an excellent pre order bonus(Laika pls), then the veterans come later...

    I wonder if we will get boxes for some old factions something alongside 300 pts boxes...

    I'm not saying that they almost look like wanting to make MO 300 pts box....

    Although 4 of those models are just glorified tokens, not troopers.

    So, 14. The point was more that there isn't a hard 10 model limit to the 300pt boxes ;)

    It seems very likely Vedic is actually coming because in the Cancon video when Bostria was answering this question with essentially a maybe, the word "yes" flashed up on the screen in text in the same style as the other text in the video very briefly....

    That's either a strong hint or a mean troll...

    In terms of production and packaging that doesn't matter.

    There is also the pricing question. The boxes are sold for 80 € with around 100€ of model inside. Last boxes didn't includes starter pack.

    With that, I imagine a kazak box with a new veteran box (based on recent box, I would guess : a paramedic, 2 special weapon (BS and T2) and an heavy (HMG)), the antipode (iconic, not old), the scout (need a lieutenant) and the new ihrmandino or a new unit to complete. Cost should be good, we reach 300pts, have more than 10 models and the scuplt are recent

    This being said, I would be surprise if we receive an ariadna or aleph box as they both already have one. A yu-Jing or Haqqislam box seem more likely.

    @colbrook if you are refering to this picture of MO miniatures then this list is not legal and doesn't follow CB trend of "use models as they are":

    The Tohaa box had some fudging of Makaul profiles.

    Drop the hacker to a standard Sarge, or the Crusader bro to a combi we're much closer.

    Mobile Brigada LT profile was created just to make 300 pts box playable. Maybe CB will also tweak some profiles for MO?

    Well yes, dropping expensive loadout of Crusader from 31 to regular combi would make it work, but again that's against previous "philosophy" which they desidng boxes around (not saying that they can't break it, its CB rule and they can break anything they want ;P).

    And actually you want hacker for Fairy Dust and assisted jump, you also really want additional MR in a link team.

    And in normal games there's almost no reason to take Order Sergeant Hacker instead of Fusilier ;P
