I'm probably going to pass on this one.  I have such a horrendous backlog of figures as it is and I haven't painted consistently in years.

I'm totally in love with the Horus and the Eagle!

...the Enforcer reads as an assault Battlemech, with an aesthetic that doesn't match other Adon models at all.

 

 

Gotta second that - the Enforcer looks like a big brother to the Imperator: Similar MACs, exposed struts in the "neck," chicken-walker...the rockets look fairly Adonese (similar to, say, the Sultan's), and the shoulders look a bit like those of a chancellor or challenger.   

 

I'm not sure if I mind all *that* much: now that there are more than two manufacturers per empire, and we know that UCORs have a lot of wiggle room to trade and operate extra-legally: there are RMI elements to the Enforcer, but maybe that's coincidental and this is an Iber'dro Kosmik design, and they for their part were stealing blueprints from both RMI and Taurant Wa-Sik.  Or maybe Iber'dro is a subsidiary or partner of Tuarant...just my $.02, and probably not worth half that!

That is a very nice pile of tanks. 

 

Any idea if either AEC or ritter are more likely than the other to have a larger proportion of tanks?

Oooh, Lynxes... :wub:

 

Is that a resculpt on the Challenger? I won't deny it needed one, but the version shown looks a little...flat. Could use a little detailing around the shoulders IMO.

 

The Javelin...sadly does nothing for me. Just doesn't feel like a CAV.

 

Very excited to see the missile trucks making an appearance, they make great objective markers! Will we be seeing in-flight cruise missiles later on??

They both have a fairly large selection of vehicles. I would guess we'll see more tanks on the Adon side (Chieftain, Scarab, Dragoon, Hornet) but heavier ones for Ritter (Wolverine, Manticore).

Hmm...I see the Dragonfly has been scaled up and redesigned as well. I suppose it looks more hover-capable in this incarnation, but the original was actually to scale--it was basically a weaponized glider--so I'm not sure if I'm thrilled with the new size (assuming I'm reading the scale relative to the base correctly).

 

The Armadillo looks great!
