  1. Infiltrating snipers are definitely underrated. Rarely are boards set up with a prrfect snipers nest in deployment zones.
  2. I’m quite happy with Patroclus.
  3. List one. You’ll need Achilles V2 for the Duo. And I’d dump the daleth and hacker for CoC and a third thorakites FO - the myrmidon hacker is a liability for a fireteam, that adds little use to it’s toolbox. list two. Again with the myrmidon hacker - and consider whether you’ll actually have an actual use for all those myrmidon chain rifles, as if you’re just using them to stack bonuses on link leaders, you’re paying a lot of points for little return.
  4. I’d say: yes. @LoricusIt’s not, that you can’t win in CC with less, it just becomes more of a crap shoot. And when you face proper cc troopers, you’re at a distinct disadvantage. At the end of the day, cc is little more than a gimmick, and its usually a lot simpler just shooting your opponent.
  5. Agreed. For any unit to be relevant in cc, they’d need a CC21+ and MA3+. And even then you’ll need consider targets. .
  6. In general the various monikers of specialists have become irrelevant in ITS – now, using a correct specialist adds +3 to WIP, where in the past a wrong specialists incurred a -3 penalty instead. This gave an enormous boost to an army like ariadna with cheap infiltrating FOs out the wazoo and compensating PanO specialists for being fairly useless. The point of hackers is to either boost your REM, which is rarely used in SP. Or else it is Killer Hackers to protect your HI and TAGs, both of which SP does very fine without – an exception is Scylla KHD and her murderbots, who can hide behind Cybermask and approach the enemy. The Paramedic, Doctor and – unless you're using a Marut or relying on Zayin – skills are rarely used, as they drain your orders.
  7. I’ll just comment on vanilla: Daikinis - if you’re not getting them for an SWC option, get the paramedic. A MOV 6-4 Specialist with Mimetism can easily win you games. If you want cheap order generators get lamedh, probots or netrods. Posthumans - these are autoinclude. A MK1 and a MK2 are so undercosted, for what they can do. They bring you a comparable versatility to a sophotect, but add visibility modifiers, infiltration and more wounds. Devas - the hacker is overpriced, when you compare him to a danavas or Thamyris. - 10 order lists - If a model has no SWC cost, and isn’t a specialist, it should be no more than 8 points. You’ll need your models to win you games, by either killing the opposition or pushing buttons. We can’t afford no ordinairy Line troopers, that can hang back in the deployment zone and do nothing, everything needs to contribute or be disposable. Versatility and Synergy - a chain rifle myrmidon is a great force multiplier to a Marut via smoke. However, once the Marut goes down, it is nigh useless, exchanging the chain rifle for a BS weapon gives superior suppressive fire capabilities, a spitfire can press on the attack, or used to envelop the enemy, while CoC or AHD means, you’re advancing a specialist. In the same way, lamedh, and probots might seem like boring order monkeys, but when paired with our expensive hackers, you expand their range enormously, both for supportware, but also defending your hacking vulnerable troops. E.g, my Achilles/Patroclus list is supported by two lamedh/Probots and a danavas, these offer my blond heroes the safety of White Noise when advancing on either flank, but having a big area covered in repeaters also give my daikini medics the benefit of MML2, making them pretty decent strikers, so the repeater bots maximize the use of my danavas/MK2 while supplying orders for my strikers/specialists.
  8. Aleph : the new chapter in human evolution. PanO : the guys who brought on the next chapter in human evolution, because they found thinking too bothersome, and just wanted to spend time on the shooting range, so they funded the biggest computer. Has a fraction of LARPers running around with shiny swords. Yu Jing : cheap knockoffs of PanO. Make up for lack of equipment by compensating with numbers and ninjas. Haqqislam : a bunch of Dune fanboys living a quasi-mystical life selling an out-of-body experience. Nomads : humanity on fun mode. An army for the sexually deviant trolls living under bridges or in their mothers basements and trekking among the stars. Ariadna : when you’re not really into sci-fi, Ariadna is the choice of the stars. Also great for nationalists who like to roll on their Rodina-rs or chant U.S.A. They ignore half the rules and challenges of the game, and compensates by focusing on the aspects that matter; cheap orders and marker states. Tohaa : good for target practice, as they’re pretty tough. Combined Army : they’re Aleph on hard mode.
  9. Yup.
  10. Posthumans are a given in any vanilla list, so there is no reason to mention those. What you need is Smoke, an Engineer, Orders and a backup plan - the last one is the most important, most often you can rely on the Marut to kill the opposing army, but sometimes you just can’t so you’ll need an alternate killer, preferably one that works diametrically opposite to Big Bunny Girl..: Aleph - Quick’n’Dirty (300/300 | 6/6)Group #1 | 10 Models | 10 0 0 Marut Lieutenant | Lieutenant, Strategos L3, MULTI HMG, Heavy Flamethrower, Nanopulser / AP CCW (120) Daleth Rebot Combi | Combi Rifle / Electric Pulse (17) Lamedh Rebot Repeater | Flash Pulse / Electric Pulse (8) Lamedh Rebot Repeater | Flash Pulse / Electric Pulse (8) Netrod AI Beacon | (4) Netrod AI Beacon | (4) Proxy Mk.1 Engineer | Engineer, Combi Rifle, Nanopulser, Pistol, D-Charges / Knife (10) Proxy Mk.2 Hacker | Assault Hacking Device, Nanopulser, Boarding Shotgun, Pistol / Knife (21) Patroclus ODD Spitfire | ODD: Optical Disruptor, Nanopulser, Smoke Grenades, Spitfire, Pistol / EXP CCW (57) Myrmidon Officer Combi Chain of Command | Chain of Command, Nanopulser, Combi Rifle, Smoke Grenades, Pistol / AP CCW (36) Dakini Tacbot Paramedic | Paramedic, MediKit, Combi Rifle / Electric Pulse (15) A list like this, gives you two sources of smoke - yet unlike a chain myrmidon, you¨ll want to use these actively. Patroclus is fast and great for killing, and unlike the Marut and Achilles, he is immune to hacking - he’s great for a throwaway first turn alphastrike, or to open an alternate attack vector, if your opponent catches your bunny Girl with her panties down. The myrmidon officer is a great source of smoke too - a specialist, that you’ll want to hold back, but still want to advance for grabbing objectives, and she comes with the practical bonus of CoC, for when your bunny dies. The MK2 hacker can cover a large area through the repeaters, if someone tries to outmaneuver your bunny bot (while being the best/cheapest TO specialist in the game). You’ve got low orders, but fast movement, reliable strikers and superior specialists covering everything, but the doctor roll.
  11. The trouble is, that it isn’t much more of threat than a B17 B4 HMG. Fireteams offensively aren’t much different from TAGs. Going at them headon will in most cases be an uphill struggle. But once you outmaneuver them, trap them with cheap templates and mines, and whittle down their supporting members, they are much more manageable - but I wouldn’t expect any less than a struggle, when people pay half an army for a HI team.
  12. You have a ten order list, so I'd refrain from anything AD or HD. You could go simple, dump a netrod for a naga FO/KHD and a daikini medic. Or how about the same naga, while upgrading your Lamedhs into Daleths. Eudoros has been suggested, and with his impetuous order, he ups your order count, and his eclipse can pave the way for Patroclus, having them run an efficient 'tag'team. Penny won't do much for you – unless you happen to run into a Jotum. – In any case, if you can dump the netrod for a Probot, you will make your list just a tad more reliable.
  13. @ZewrathI’d prefer keeping the discussion civil, shooting for the ball, not the player - irregardless, the subjective nature. So I’d urge you to delete your comment. @Quaade has also been doing quite a bit of work in promoting the game, introducing new players, setting up tournaments and creating a community, and so he deserves better, than mere ridicule on the forum. Heck, I probably wouldn’t have gotten into the game, if he hadn’t spend an Easter sitting at Fastaval running introduction games.
  14. I don’t think, I’ve even had the chance (or the wish) to use my daikini medics for their healing
  15. Your very own words – I've little else to base this on. So if you find yourself to be misunderstood, then please elaborate on how you find the described behaviour to be good sportsmanship?
