  1. If you're shy about going first, then I would say ditch Joan, and stick mostly light infantry fireteams and TOFOSS infiltrators. Lists like this would suit you better: Military Orders ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 110 FATHER-KNIGHT Lieutenant Spitfire / Breaker Pistol, DA CCW. (2 | 50) SPEC. SERGEANT Combi Rifle + AUXBOT_1 / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 17) AUXBOT_1 Heavy Flamethrower / Electric Pulse. (- | 4) ORDER SERGEANT Heavy Rocket Launcher / Assault Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 15) ORDER SERGEANT Spitfire / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 19) ORDER SERGEANT Paramedic (MediKit) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 15) ORDER SERGEANT Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 13) ORDER SERGEANT Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 13) MACHINIST (Father-Engineer) Combi Rifle, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 15) PALBOT Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) PALBOT Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) PATHFINDER DRONBOT Combi Rifle, Sniffer / Electric Pulse. (0 | 16) FUGAZI DRONBOT Flash Pulse, Sniffer / Electric Pulse. (0 | 8) GROUP 25 1 SPEC. SERGEANT (CH: TO Camouflage, Infiltration, Forward Observer) Combi Rifle, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 27) SPEC. SERGEANT Combi Rifle + AUXBOT_1 / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 17) AUXBOT_1 Heavy Flamethrower / Electric Pulse. (- | 4) FUSILIER Hacker (Hacking Device) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 18) SIERRA DRONBOT HMG / Electric Pulse. (1 | 25) MULEBOT (Total Reaction, Repeater) Combi Rifle / Electric Pulse. (0 | 21) TECH-BEE (Remote Assistant Level 1, Specialist Operative) Flash Pulse / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 5) 6 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army You've got a good Father-Knight to be DataTracker for 90% of missions—he can protect himself and kill enemies equally competently. Use the Lieutenant Order, because a knowledgeable player will know that he's the only potential boss in your list. For defense, if going second, you have a HRL Sergeant, who will be shooting at 15s most of the time. He'll be backed up by a Total Reaction HMG, and a Total Reaction Combi. The Total Reaction Combi bot wasn't popular last season, but given that there are so many missions which now require you to protect the HVT or the DataTracker, a close-range shooter will come in handy. He also has Baggage, so he's worth a whopping 41 points when controlling zones. Use the Fusilier Hacker to hackbuff the Sensor or one of the defense turrets. The Sensor bot in turn can scan camouflage enemies in his own Zone of Control, and anywhere that that Fugazi poops out a sniffer. Follow up with G:Sync Specialist Sergeants. Finally, the TOFOSS Specialist Sergeant is your "trump card", a jack to pull out of your sleeve when the time is right. You'll be very comfortable going second with that list. But if you want to "git gud", then try playing 10 men, and go first whenever you can. Going first when you don't have to, will teach you to be better when you go first but don't want to.
  2. Do you know the missions you will be playing? That is probably the #1 consideration you should have when making a list. Even so, with the Reduced Combat Groups rule in ITS9, you will be better off with a 10-man group. In this case, Joan is there to round out the fireteam, and give everyone Courage/Regular. Military Orders ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 9 1 JOAN OF ARC Lieutenant MULTI Rifle, Nanopulser / Pistol, DA CCW. (+1 | 50) DE FERSEN Spitfire / Pistol, Templar CCW (AP + Shock). (2 | 58) KNIGHT HOSPITALLER HMG / Pistol, AP CCW. (2 | 41) KNIGHT HOSPITALLER Doctor (MediKit) Combi Rifle / Pistol, DA CCW. (0 | 37) KNIGHT HOSPITALLER Boarding Shotgun / Pistol, DA CCW. (0 | 33) BULLETEER Spitfire / Electric Pulse. (1 | 23) PATHFINDER DRONBOT Combi Rifle, Sniffer / Electric Pulse. (0 | 16) SPEC. SERGEANT Heavy Rocket Launcher + AUXBOT_1 / Assault Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 19) AUXBOT_1 Heavy Flamethrower / Electric Pulse. (- | 4) MACHINIST (Father-Engineer) Combi Rifle, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 15) PALBOT Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) TECH-BEE (Remote Assistant Level 1, Specialist Operative) Flash Pulse / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 5) 6.5 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army That list gives you a way to deal with camouflage directly, and with the immunity to -2 orders, you can crash the mighty knights in on turn 1 with impunity. Enough specialists for a blind mission, too. Just don't let Joan die.
  3. You shouldn't really think about this too much, to be honest. Daydreaming about the obliteration of traditional genders is creepy.
  4. The Xeodron excerpt has them refer to the EI as a "her". Elsewhere it is "him" or "it". I don't think the EI is supposed to actually have a gender.
  5. I ran this last night on a blind mission (Annihilation) against a Nomads list. Gwailoaded ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 10 SHESKIIN Lieutenant Red Fury, Pulzar, D-Charges / Pistol, DA CCW. (0 | 51) GWAILO (X Visor) Heavy Rocket Launcher / Pistol, CCW. (1.5 | 23) GWAILO Hacker (EI Assault Hacking Device) Boarding Shotgun / Pistol, CCW. (0.5 | 27) GWAILO MULTI Rifle / Pistol, CCW. (0 | 26) GWAILO MULTI Rifle / Pistol, CCW.

(0 | 23) SLAVE DRONE Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) SLAVE DRONE Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) NOCTIFER Missile Launcher / Assault Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 32) 5.5 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army Gwailo HRL carried hard. Managed to play the whole game forgetting about the Noctifer.
  6. QFT for the T2+Flamethrower Kazak. This guy is a one-man Tohaa-killing machine: Ariadna ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 1 VETERAN KAZAK (X Visor) T2 Rifle, Light Flamethrower / Heavy Pistol, Knife. (0 | 38) 0 SWC | 38 Points Open in Infinity Army T2 ammo, if you're not familiar, @doydoy, deals 2 wounds instead of 1 on a crit or failed armor save. Add Mimetism and X-Visor Suppressive Fire, and you basically hard counter the Sakiel.
  7. Once again, Tesla, I think the problem is your meta. 10 order lists I expect will be even more popular now that they are immune to Order loss, and that so many new revised missions no longer need many (or any) WIP objectives. ALEPH ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 10 MARUT Lieutenant (Strategos L3) MULTI HMG, Heavy Flamethrower, Nanopulser / AP CCW. (3 | 120) KARKATA Flash Pulse / Knife. (0 | 0) ZAYIN Rebot HMG / Electric Pulse. (1 | 26) ZAYIN Rebot HMG / Electric Pulse. (1 | 26) MYRMIDON Chain Rifle, Nanopulser, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW. (0 | 16) MYRMIDON Chain Rifle, Nanopulser, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW. (0 | 16) THORAKITES Paramedic (Medikit, 360º Visor) Submachine gun, Chain Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 14) THORAKITES (Forward Observer, 360º Visor) Submachine gun, Chain Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 13) PROXY Mk.1 Hacker (Hacking Device) Combi Rifle, Nanopulser / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 14) PROXY Mk.2 Hacker (Assault Hacking Device) Boarding Shotgun, Nanopulser / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 21) DACTYL Engineer Combi Rifle, Adhesive-Launcher, D-Charges / 2 Breaker Pistols, Knife. (0 | 23) YUDBOT Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) PROBOT (Minesweeper, Repeater) Electric Pulse. (0 | 8) 6 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army A list like that was already competitive and frightening. It could fight first or second just fine. And now that DataTracker and -2 Order Immunity exists, it's way more competitive than it already was.

  9. Viral doesn't get anti-materiel, either. Just DA, EXP, and K1, as far as I know. The Cube Jäger looks good for Safe Area, too, but that's about it.

  11. Hence the mea culpa. Cube Jäger looks like hot trash to me, but enjoy if you find it enjoyable.
  12. Well... some folks seem to think that Monofilament is good for destroying scenery... though it this folk seems to have misremembered Supplies. I remembered that as the "blow up crates" mission. Further inspection seems to show that that mission has fallen into the ol' Orb of Annihilation.
  13. Monofilament does not have Anti-Materiel...
