2018 MIA
« on: December 28, 2018, 05:19:04 am »

Its inevitable that some things will fall through the cracks. But there are a few things from the 2018 catalog that I am disappointed did not make it out this year.

The "Crap I want to finish out a collection" category
Tom & Rattlesnake - I really just want Tom.
Luisa & Demolisher - No real reason, i just want it.

The "Am I the only person who doesn't have it" Category
Mercenary Headquarters - Is there a more useful 4 point model in the game than Emma.

The "Damn that looks cool" Category.
Object 47 - 4 treads, 4.
PT-47c - A rocket for you, and a rocket for you, and a rocket for you.


All said, they hit a lot of cool things this year. Those were just some highlight I wish had made the cut.

Hmm... Looks like two of the Dual Field Lasers, standard König front dual MG (just noticed, it's a single front arc MG under the chin), and two turreted MGs. If that render ends up being what we get, I'll be happy; mostly because defending against Infantry with just the front MGs of the Sturm-/-luther is a quick loss of a pricy König.

Whatta ya think? Low- to mid-30s AP cost?

It looks like 4 field lasers were welded to a large walker chassis.
My favorite large walker for the axis, in terms of looks, is the kongislother.
I was hoping for either something like that, with a massive battery smaller lasers. Or 2 mega lasers. I also feel like the back looks bland. All the laser "heat sinks "or whatever the cylinders are on them, should be supervised and put on the back and there should be tubes running from the guns to them.
At least that was what I was imagining.

May be bigger is better but I´d rather field 4 Hermann Tropical instead of that Monster . It´s too expensive and you can  attack only one target with your heavy guns but that´s only my personal opinion .

I'm in with Mechaholic there: 4 activations > 1 activation.

Still, if they release the model in Cerberus/Zverograd pattern I'm definitely buying it! :)

I don´t know the exact costs but it should be about 35 - 40 points for that kind of Lasermonster ( Range + Damage + LASER + Vehicle 7 and 10 + X Hitpoints )
