BattleTactics TV posted several cool photos from GenCon!

Prinzluther. An axis heavy troop transport!

 

Sturmprinz

 

Matrioshka. Looks like a Fury of Ivan with more MG power.

 

Babushka. Now those are big machine guns!

 

Karl Marx tank. That's gotta hurt.

 

Heavy HEAVY Laser Grenadiers.

 

Jagdgrenadiere

 

The most normal vehicle in the game.

 

French and British Commandos!

 

 We can also glimpse several Red Guard squads: Assault, Antitank, Command…

 Oooooooooo. Those are nice. I'm assuming those are "Premium" prices and not the standard ones. Still really awesome walkers and I am thinking that there maybe some british commandos in my army's future.

Finally some weapons teams - I was hoping we'd see something like this.

I wonder if they're not allowed going through small doorways since their base won't fit through…

So are there really that few Allied units coming out, or are people just not taking pics of them?

From all of the pictures I've seen on their website, I still haven't seen any sign of the SSU's other heli's. It looks like they have everything else though.

Battletactics.TV has TONNES of pics on their FB page.
Unfortunately, it looks like virtually all the Allied Units on display are already released… I wonder why there's no love for the Allies this year.

Huge mistake only advertising the premium prices only on the tags, HUGE MISTAKE… they are going to turn off a lot of people who will see 100 bucks and just keep walking… And since everyone else shows painted models, they will not even assume that those prices are for painted models… they will just think, "this stuff costs even more than GW!"

 The walker formerly known as "Prinz"? …yeah, bad joke, but couldn't resist

OT: that axis walker looks like 1-chassis, 2-options?

 

BTW, thanks for the pic's.  Was gonna drive up to GenCon this weekend, but laziness and apathy kicked in.

Awsome!!!!, I especially like the Axis heavy weapons team. I saw two Allied units in the background, a French and British Kill team. I get to shoot the French Joy!!!

I don't like how the heavy weapon teams llok like. They could be sitting or lying down. Shooting from arm is possible with let's say mg 42 but using a gun that's bigger than the shooter?! On stand position?nahhh

Also i wonder if they will have to use an action to "ready up" the equipment.

They look ok  to me after all these are the guy's in heavy armour and the weapons although long, don't look overly heavy.  Doubt if DT will go into the extra detail of setting up, nothing to set up when shoulder mounted, no more so than your normal bazooka.

I guess being on a base of three no models will be removed until it sustains three hits?

 Shiny!

Heavy weapon team have a power armour, so can shoot from shoulders (minus eardrum maybe :) )

 Yes the units have hit points and they take them like the heroes. Once they are all gone then you remove the init. Thats info from GEN CON.

 The only allied previews I saw were a British Commando and French Foreign Legion Kill Teams.  They were each armor 3, armed pretty similarly with some sort of rifle (not phaser though)

Not long enough to be phasers unless they're a lighter watt phaser than what the Devils carry
