AT-43 Upcoming Releases: Anuman, Jindo-Un and MedTec

Hey everyone,

Rackham has just released what I am guessing will be the final pics for the Saint Anuman/Jindo-Un boxed set and the MedTec boxed set. First up is Anuman in all his Jammer n' ZZ cannon glory...

And here is the blurb about him.

""Let those who seek peace prepare for war."– Anuman

Saint Anuman is an officer and a hero of the Karman army. He comes on foot and aboard his armored fighting vehicle Jindo-Un. As a soldier, Saint Anuman can be played leading any type 1 unit (KARE). Aboard his flying vehicle, he is a unit of his own. Saint Anuman is the best officer of the Karman army and a fearsome armored fighting vehicle hunter. This heroic pilot can override the controls of enemy vehicles with his nova jammers!"

Personally, I am not looking forward to facing him. The thought having my Golgoths turn around and open fire on my troops... Nope, doesn't work for me. Might be time to consider the all-infantry Therian army.

The next is the MedTec, which you can see here...

What is interesting about this is the blurb...

"A new protagonist in the war stepped into the light when Operation: Elysée began: MedTec is originally a U.N. interstellar company and a subsidiary of ONI Technologies.

This company sells its cutting edge medical services to all sides involved. Everything that can preserve the existence of a fighter is available: Therian nanotechnology, experimental Red Blok cloning treatment, Karman relaxation techniques, etc. All it takes is payment, with money for those who know of the concept, more often in resources of all sorts.MedTec is not a neutral power and no one will hesitate to shoot at a medical container being used by the enemy. The nurses and doctors working for this company are greatly rewarded for the risks they take.

General staffs on every side can only speculate when they discuss the deals they suspect MedTec has sealed with their enemies. The U.N.A. and the Karmans have an immediate interest: ONI Tech has access to collectivist cloning techniques and to some extent Therian technologies. Neither the Red Blok nor the Therians had any reason to accept a neutrality deal at first. It wouldn´t have been particularly favourable to them since it made their advantages available to their enemies."

Now wait a minute. They sell their services to all sides involved? Sounds like the Therians might be getting access to Medics from this but that just seems really wierd. I have always thought that the Golems and Goliaths are more mechanical than organic. How is a doctor supposed to "heal" a robot? Hmmm... It will be interesting to get some more information about this one.

Well, that's all for now but until next time, may all of your dice come up Dragons!
