Things are still going incredibly well in the campaign, and we are closing in on the $140K stretch goal that will see Baker Zosa back in the game. I was really sorry to see him cut in the first place - but we only had room for three characters, Captain Kara Back was a must - as was having a medic when there are Strain infections to deal with - so we had to have Morgan Vade. Then it came down to a choice between Barker and Operator Akosha Nama - Sniper rifle vs Fusion Cannon... We decided to go with precision instead of brute force, but it was a hard call.
I'm delighted to see he's nearly back in the game though - hopefully we can reach that stretch goal and confirm it soon!
One of the new miniatures that is going in the game in one of the Elite Samaritan troopers -
An interlaced electron beam acts as a guidance system for the plume of superhot plasma fired by the Azriel class fusion lance. The highly intense beam of energy is the equivalent of a controlled solar flare, capable of burning holes through Meridian class hull-plating.
Designed as a man portable, close combat, anti-materiel weapon platform the Azriel is deployed with a Technician class Samaritan specialist designated as Lancer. Serving dual purposes as a breach expert and an anti-personnel sweeper, the Samaritan Lancer is ideal for on point for incursions into hostile facilities and hard point extraction missions.
Here are pictures of the painted miniature -
