  1. I did not understand, why should I use a token to move the imetrons to group one... Where is the advantage to have imetrons in group one instead of group two ?? Could you please explain?
  2. HI guys, I would like to change my classical Onyx lists based on the Unidron link. I was obviously thinking about Rodoks, but before buying them, I would like to check whether they`re worth or not. I thought about a first list, based on a Rodok link: Rodok test ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 110 RODOK Lieutenant Combi Rifle, 2 Light Shotguns / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 26) RODOK HMG / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 27) RODOK Paramedic (MediKit) Boarding Shotgun, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 21) RODOK Paramedic (MediKit) Boarding Shotgun, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 21) RODOK Boarding Shotgun, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 19) UMBRA LEGATE Hacker (Hacking Device Plus) Boarding Shotgun, Flash Pulse / Pistol, DA CCW. (0.5 | 43) IKADRON (Baggage, Repeater) 2 Light Flamethrowers, Flash Pulse / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 9) XEODRON Red Fury, Blitzen / Heavy Pistol. (1 | 59) STALDRON Flash Pulse / Knife. (0 | 0) MAAKREP TRACKER HMG / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 33) M-DRONE Combi Rifle, Sniffer / Electric Pulse. (0 | 17) GROUP 24 IKADRON (Baggage, Repeater) 2 Light Flamethrowers, Flash Pulse / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 9) R-DRONE Flash Pulse, Sniffer / Electric Pulse. (0 | 8) ÍMETRON . (0 | 4) ÍMETRON . (0 | 4) 5.5 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army I do not expect to face TAGs or heavy units in my next game. I could have an Ariadna adversary or a Haqq one (who never brings TAGs or HIs). I expect camos anyway... What do you think about the list? What could I improve and why? Thank you as always.
  3. Hi, I had a new battle (Capture and protect) against PanO, 300 pts. I won with the following list: Partita 4 ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 110 NEXUS Lieutenant (Specialist Operative) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 16) UNIDRON K1 Combi Rifle + 1 TinBot A (Deflector L1) / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0.5 | 17) UNIDRON Plasma Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (1.5 | 24) UNIDRON Missile Launcher, Light Shotgun / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (1.5 | 20) UNIDRON (Forward Observer) Plasma Carbine / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 15) UMBRA LEGATE Hacker (Hacking Device Plus) Boarding Shotgun, Flash Pulse / Pistol, DA CCW. (0.5 | 43) Treitak Spec-Ops (12 XP) (Chain of Command, Engineer, Doctor) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 14) SLAVE DRONE Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) IKADRON (Baggage, Repeater) 2 Light Flamethrowers, Flash Pulse / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 9) IKADRON (Baggage, Repeater) 2 Light Flamethrowers, Flash Pulse / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 9) UNIDRON (Forward Observer) Plasma Carbine / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 15) GROUP 25 MALIGNOS (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 36) E-DRONE Combi Rifle / Electric Pulse. (0.5 | 28) Q-DRONE HMG / Electric Pulse. (1 | 26) M-DRONE Combi Rifle, Sniffer / Electric Pulse. (0 | 17) R-DRONE Flash Pulse, Sniffer / Electric Pulse. (0 | 8) 5.5 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army Key victory parameters were the following, by my point of view: 1) Two groups, which could act independently and eventually concurring to the same objective: that meant a lot of orders and coordinated assaults. Units with overlapping roles and complete set of skills. 2) Link team was a swiss knife: thanks to the advices and articles I read in these past days. I could engage many enemy units from the distance with the plasma sniper (assisted by the evo), one by one. I killed a Swiss Guard with an assisted K1 rifle attack... I killed two LIs with a missile launcher attack from the distance. Really a great team. 3) A complete repeaters net: the adversary could not use his hackers succesfully as I was able to counter them every time. All my rems were supported every time they had to move and/or attack. I was able to deactivate enemy mines, to perform succesfull hacking attacks... a complete team. Thanks to all of you for the support and the advices.
  4. Can a unit with sensor use it in ARO ??
  5. Normally, the infiltrators are camo units... How does the Umbra Samaritan hunt such units ??
  6. A unit with engineer skill has a deactivator, by which it can deactivate mines or E/Maulers at range, when in LoF. If an engineer uses a remote... and if the remote has an antipersonnel mine in LoF at 16" for instance... can the remote use a deactivator to deactivate the mine? Or can the engineer unit only do it? If yes, can the engineer move two remotes simultaneously in order to deactivate two different mines? Thank you very much
  7. I am mostly using a Nexus operative Lt in my teams, lately. More often I select a Nexus hacker Lt, to be attached to an Unidron link team, as I tought it could be well protected and, at the same time, he could be useful to the team with his support programs. On the other side, I see that I mostly use my link team offensively: the Unidrons are very often in a forward position. The Lt is often used also as an objective specialist, with good results. The downside is that he is continuosly exposed to enemy fire and sometimes he dies, leaving me with a loos of Lt situation. The Nexus is a good anc cheap Lt; it seems to me that leaving him outside the team means to leave him too exposed to infiltrators or AD troops attacks. On the other hand, as said, the link team is always in the center of action, receiving direct and indirect (grenades, mines...) fire constantly. Onyx does not offer too many LT options, not cheap generally, and many of them are not really feasible... What do you use as Lt, and how do you protect him during the game?
  8. In the end I used the following group: Bridgehead ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 10 NEXUS Lieutenant Hacker (EI Hacking Device) Combi Rifle, Nullifier / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 24) UNIDRON Plasma Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (1.5 | 24) UNIDRON K1 Combi Rifle + 1 TinBot A (Deflector L1) / Pistol, Electric Pulse.

(0 | 15) MED-TECH OBSIDON MEDCHANOID Combi Rifle, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 23) SLAVE DRONE Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) UMBRA LEGATE Hacker (Hacking Device Plus) Boarding Shotgun, Flash Pulse / Pistol, DA CCW. (0.5 | 43) OVERDRON 2 Plasma Snipers / . (2 | 69) STALDRON Flash Pulse / Knife. (0 | 0) MAAKREP TRACKER Combi Rifle + Light Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 29) MALIGNOS Combi Rifle, Monofilament Mines / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 38) 6 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army The enemy brought a list full of TO-Camo and ODD`s... I do not remember the exact list, but it looked like the following: Neoterran Capitaline Army ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 10 SWISS GUARD MULTI Rifle / Pistol, AP CCW. (0 | 64) (maybe a heavier weapon, he never showed himself from TO) FUSILIER Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 10) DEVA Hacker (Hacking Device) Combi Rifle, Nanopulser / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 31) HEXA Hacker (Killer Hacking Device) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 27) HEXA Hacker (Killer Hacking Device) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 27) BULLETEER Spitfire / Electric Pulse. (1 | 23) BLACK FRIAR MULTI Sniper, Nanopulser / Pistol, CC Weapon. (1.5 | 30) LOCUST Boarding Shotgun, Grenades, Drop Bears / Pistol, Shock CCW, Knife. (0 | 30) LOCUST Boarding Shotgun, Grenades, Drop Bears / Pistol, Shock CCW, Knife. (0 | 30) GARUDA Tacbot Spitfire / Electric Pulse. (1.5 | 28) 4.5 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army I have been tactical this time, focusing on objective and starting the game with a precise idea in mind: to get the classified objective and a secondary one, and to prevent the enemy to get the main objective (using the Malignos at the last turn to contest it without engaging enemy more powerful troops. I was able to play as planned and won. Result: 4-2 for me. (Main objective was 4 pts but, as said, could not be assigned to any of us)
  9. I was reading the wiki about "monofilament mines"... MONOFILAMENT SPECIAL AMMUNITION AND COVER Monofilament Special Ammunition has no effect on Cover Modifiers, which apply normally. I was wondering... if the mine explodes with a small teardrop template, the target should not be able to use any partial cover. So, what does the referenced sentence mean? Which modifiers shuld not be affected? Thanks
  10. Thanks for the advices. I tried to improve my list as in the following: Onyx Contact Force ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 10 NEXUS Lieutenant Hacker (EI Hacking Device) Combi Rifle, Nullifier / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 24) UNIDRON K1 Combi Rifle + 1 TinBot A (Deflector L1) / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0.5 | 17) UNIDRON K1 Combi Rifle / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0.5 | 16) UNIDRON Plasma Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (1.5 | 24) UNIDRON (Forward Observer) Plasma Carbine / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 15) UMBRA LEGATE Hacker (Hacking Device Plus) Boarding Shotgun, Flash Pulse / Pistol, DA CCW. (0.5 | 43) OVERDRON 2 Plasma Snipers / . (2 | 69) STALDRON Flash Pulse / Knife. (0 | 0) MED-TECH OBSIDON MEDCHANOID Combi Rifle, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 23) SLAVE DRONE Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) E-DRONE Combi Rifle / Electric Pulse. (0.5 | 28) MALIGNOS (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 36) 6 SWC | 298 Points Open in Infinity Army I brought a doctor worm as I deploy a lot of REMs... There are not too many heavy weapons though, but I hope to be able to compensate with the Umbra Legate and the link team. I am not too sure about the E-Drone... If I exclude it and also the second K1 Unidron, I could change to the following... Onyx Contact Force ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 10 NEXUS Lieutenant Hacker (EI Hacking Device) Combi Rifle, Nullifier / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 24) UNIDRON K1 Combi Rifle + 1 TinBot A (Deflector L1) / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0.5 | 17) UNIDRON Plasma Carbine / Pistol, Electric Pulse.

(0 | 9) 6 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army What do you think about them??
  11. What about this one ?? Gruppo unico 1 ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 9 NEXUS Lieutenant (Nanoscreen) Spitfire / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 26) RODOK HMG / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 27) RODOK Paramedic (MediKit) Boarding Shotgun, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 21) RODOK Boarding Shotgun, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife.

  12. Lets just remember that we are talking about units with 6 BTS... I see it possibly order expensive to perform hacking attacks... that`s why they are nasty units to fight against (imho)
  13. Marksmanship...right... not a bad consideration.
  14. Thanks... Yes the Ikadrons are interesting. Also the Suryat have light flamers... The DTW give a free shoot in ARO, that means very high chance to loose my unit against a BS15 HI... Let`s think about the Unidron link (the Rodok one is expensive and I would like to add a TAG to the list): +3WIP to discover, +3BS, +1B, Sixth sense l2 In a typical case, an Unidron fires against a Swiss Guard (or Hac Tao) at 11 +3 (link) +3 (range) -6 (To-camo) -3 (coverage) = 8 even if with B3. The target can shoot back at 15 +0 (let`s say I am lucky with the range) -3 (coverage) = 12 (even 15 when in +3 range) (in few cases I can discover at high range and give him -3) It isn`t a good situation for a firefight, isn`t it? In this case a MSV Maakrep hits on 12 and has a higher burst... That`s what I mean... The Samaritan is a good CC killer, you´re right...and also the Legates... They are options I got to consider. They are also good hackers, and that`s another option, also from outside of enemy LoF... But they got to move carefully (or using impersonation) because shooting ARO from such HI`s are very dangerous...
  15. I also considered it, and it has a certain appeal. I am worried about very dense terrain, which gives the opportunity to enemy units to approach up to a short range. Also in sniper rifle optimal range, a HI with BS14-15 and ARM5, in coverage is a bad target for the Overdron. Camo and TO-camo are impossible targets for the Overdron, especially if they are in cover. Now, I think that the possible targets for this TAG are few. I got to rely on positioning, that means going second and chosing the right sniping spot. Otherwise I risk to spend 69/2 (pts/SWC) for a defensive unit, which possibly does not do anything. After first turn, albedo is gone and movement becomes more tricky...
