We’ve got another awesome and exclusive preview for you this week thanks to Corvus Belli. Here we have the UMBRA Samaritans for Infinity and they are looking gooooood….
Here’s a bit of the background and fluff behind this deadly and mysterious addition to the Combined Army. I wouldn’t want to run into one of these on a dark night…
“SecLock Contingencies. Online Tactic Assessment. Customer number confirmed….
How can we help you? […] Are you saying that an Umbra Samaritan is following you? Can you please confirm this? Indeed. It’s not a Legate but an Umbra Samaritan. [...] Understood. Now, if you have an escape route, use it right away. [...]
Yes, this is your certified tactical advice. Our AI confirms this option offers you the greatest chances for survival. You don’t have a clear escape route? [...] Have you optimized your skills or personal equipment since you last updated your user profile? [...]
Do you have boosted muscle strength, better protection, enhanced reflexes, a precise high-speed targeting system, etc.? [...] No? [...] Then, I repeat, find an escape route. [...] Yes, sir. Your customer profile indicates that you come from a line of fighters that never backs down. [...] I insist that you follow the certified tactical advice. [...]
Obviously, you make the decision, but if you reject the tactical advice, the compensation bonuses will be canceled in case of death. [...] Okay, it’s your decision: you can follow your protocol as a private, professional contractor so that you can end up being a dead private, professional contractor.
Or, you can follow the certified tactical advice to live, possibly, and finish your contract another day. [...] No? You’re still rejecting the certified tactical advice? [...] Tell me, what do you have? What kinds of weapons do you have? [...] That’s not enough. [...]
No, that’s not enough to face an Umbra Samaritan. Our eyes in the sky confirm that one is coming close to your position… please, follow the escape route we marked through your optical visor and escape. [...]
No, don’t go after him! [...] Professional codes of honor! They’re always an obstacle… Supervision, I confirm the death of a client… Mark it with a “Cause of Death Unavoidable: Umbra Samaritan” Code…

Model-wise the figure is looking great. It has a definite spirit quality to it and looks like it would haunt you across the battlefield, trailing you waiting for the right moment to strike.
This creature stands taller than the average soldier and will no doubt be a dominating presence on the tabletop. Look out for your own Umbra Samaritan soon.
