  1. Now now, there's always the new book coming out soon. Though it is unlikely for NCA and others to get a retouch there is always the possibility.
  2. Might not fit what you are looking for but don't forget about Uragan and Katyusha Muls. Bad BS but would still contribute to the Macross missile massacre you're building towards.
  3. Scout with e/Mauler. You really can't beat the Ojotnik in terms of utility so that's enough in itself. But people never expect e/maulers so either their squishy guys spend excess orders avoiding it or their heavies run right through it.
  4. Oh damn, you are right I had a typo. It's Мать which would be spelled Mat' in English. It's the Russian word for mother, which makes sense since Rodina (Родина) means motherland.
  5. Nope it's in Matr, the official capital. The French want a space port and it is the main source of contention between the two groups. Control of the space port is also how the Kazaks maintain power.
  6. @Kanluwen think he's referring to local space security with the special orbital force, after all the Kazaks control the only official Ariadnan spaceport. As for the airborne, I could see the Kazaks getting a second airborne option since the Soviet Union was the first to develop airborne infantry and the prominent role they had in the Cold War Soviet military. I certainly agree that the Kazaks have enough units to be effective as an individual force but I think they would benefit from some additional units. This is just so that there is greater possible variety in list building like other sectorials have.
  7. Just a random thought that occurred to me due to the immobilized crazy koala thread but does E/M disable perimeter weapons and motorcycles? For example: would Yojimbo running over an e/Mauler immobilize his bike and disable his koalas? I would imagine the bike would be disabled as would the koalas if they were hit by the template but I could also see his being disabled deactivating the koalas.
  8. Huzzah! I am not the only one hyping up the Uragan anymore! Honestly one of my favorite units which finds it's way into nearly every list. It's a surprisingly effective anti-link weapon as well since opponents are less likely to be cautious about their placement due to unfamiliarity. Nothing more hilarious then four out of five link members are blown up while running between buildings.
  9. It seems like the Ariadna boards have become a little quiet so lets get a new conversation started. Here is the question I pose to my comrades: Which unit or units has been the mostly pleasantly surprising to use? For me it has been the e/Mauler Scout since its a not commonly seen or expected loadout but nothing is as pleasing as freezing an entire Brigada link all at once thinking they would just tank an antipersonnel mine. Also she has been quite useful with the bonuses this season to Elite troops either being able to kidnap the HVT or get an ADHL in Hunting Party.

    @zagdag Welcome to the ranks Comrade! That is an excellent use for Voronin that I often forget to do, thank you I agree that he himself does not do too much, though that Assault Pistol comes in handy for pesky AD troops. Having that extra order is incredibly handy though because it makes it easier to build balanced combat groups. I don't like focusing everything in one combat group getting the job done because then I can get crippled if I go first. I'll have to give the Kazak sniper idea a shot at some point, I currently use the Uragan for that role. People tend to get overconfident against that guy since he has terrible rangebands and BS. It's hilarious though when it takes out most of a link team in ARO because they forget that a template does not get cancelled out in FtF but goes down regardless. So while the leader is probably safe, his friends are not.

    So I feel this thread needs a bump mainly for all of those Ariadna players who have not accepted Rodina as the true path yet to see the light. Also I would like some thoughts on lists I'm testing for an upcoming tournament, both have Voronin because I have seriously fallen in love with that profile since Wotan. The missions are Safe Area, Frontline, Supplies, Acquisition, and Firefight (not necessarily in that order). Also the tournament organizers are incentivizing TAGs by offering a special trophy to the player who kills (outright, unconscious does not count) the most enemy troops with a TAG. Mormaers count for this as well (but not Vet Kazaks :() Given this I am expecting to face a TAG in every round.

  12. I agree with Mahtamori about the dead subject no longer being hunted down. Considering that the goal of this mission is to capture targets for later interrogation, as implied by the focus on non-lethal force, a corpse only divulges so much information
  13. Since unit classification is now more important this season for missions like Hunting Party and it's in the database Army references already, would it be possible to have that information on the printouts? Edit: and of course I just noticed IJW suggested this already. Really should have scrolled up more
  14. I remember doing research like this a few years ago, the numbers @TheRedZealot references are not too dissimilar from costs in the US. Commercial real estate is bloody expensive in areas with high traffic. It's why you find so many LFGS in strip malls because the rent tends to be cheaper but they tend to be smaller. For reference, here are some numbers I pulled for lease prices for Iowa City, IA, New York City, and Kansas City, MO: Iowa City $8.7-30 per square foot per year (all numbers presented use this model) average appears to be $17 NYC $50-100 Kansas City, MO $15 Quick glance shows the cheaper locations tend to be on the outskirts or less than desirable areas. To check the numbers yourself here is the site I used, obviously not definitive but helps to get an idea.These leases also likely do not include utility costs and other business expenses. http://www.loopnet.com/
  15. Well if they do plan to introduce a new alien faction they actually have one in the fluff already. If I remember correctly there is a kind of precursor race that left something called a Digestor (I think) on Paradiso. Could not the fighting activate some sort of gate that brings back this faction? Can anyone with the books shed some light on this for me?
