  1. Thanks, I knew something was wrong there We only checked this part: Cancellation The Camouflaged trooper enters base to base contact with a model. But missed this part: Troopers cannot enter base to base contact with a Camouflage Marker. Thanks for clarifying!
  2. Yesterday the following occured and I'd like to ask you guys whether we played it right or not: A Hassassin Ayyar with 2 active Holoechoes approaches a camouflaged Oniwaban who is hiding behind a wall. The Ayyar announces his first short skill - move - and proceeds to move one of his holoechoes around the wall and into base contact with the Oniwaban, cancelling the Oni's camouflaged state. Oniwaban decides to defer his Aro. After declaring this particular Holoecho fake, we take it off the table. Then the second Holoecho and the real Ayyar also move around the wall, each from a different direction, making sure not to get within 4" of the Oniwaban so he can't declare an Engage Aro on either of them (he has Kinematika Lv-2!). The Ayyar declares the second part of his order - shoot - and the second fake Holoecho disappears. The Oniwaban, however, is facing the wrong direction (where the second fake Holoecho just disappeared), so he can only roll for a Change Facing Aro. Since the Ayyar is firing from Holoecho state, he makes use of Surprise Shot Lv. 2 and puts a -6 MOD on the Oniwaban's Roll, winning the FTF roll and killing the Oniwaban. We thought that, if this is indeed how Holoecho Lv. 2 can be used, it would be a very hard counter against camo troops, so we must have made a mistake somewhere. Thanks in advance!
  3. I finally got around to reading my copy yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised: Cons: - The art took some getting used to – not my favourite style at all - Some scenes were very busy/blurry - Cliche characters, but that's to be expected in such a short stroy Pros: - Awesome fighting scenes - Some eye candy here and there – loved that - Realistic depiction of warfare and the brutality that goes with it – this is not a book for children - Finally another glimpse into the setting - I really liked Emily
  4. No, its just a rifle with a different range band
  5. Yeah, there only a few units, so it shouldn't be too hard to avoid them. I could see a male Odalisque-pendant as a special edition and he should be a comically buff stripper type half naked alpha-male. Maybe make him a special edition like the Fat Yuan Yuan and put a little piece of Background in the box, explaining that there is a very small male Odalisque contingent for special occasions. As I said, I think a joke once in a while is good and fun (I love the fat Yuan Yuan).
  6. I like the general idea of gender swapped special editions, but I wouldn't extend those to actual historical figures like Jeann D'Arc or Achilles or even those units that are specifically described as being female/male only. A joke once in a while is fine, but it shouldn't undermine the established setting just for the sake of equal representation.
  7. I don't think CB should hamfist rules into the game if they didn't have the intention to implement them in the first place. All of those miniatures can be used very reasonably as stand-ins for existing units, too Knauf already got his own profile and If we're going into wishlisting territory here, I could see Emily and Uhahu as a tag team loadout similar to equipe mirage.

(0 | 8) 5 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army I managed to get up to 13 orders in total as suggested. The Yan Huo will hose whatever is obstructing the Tiger Soldiers' approach. I figured making him the LT will help him accomplish that thanks to the LT-order. With three hackers and two Chaiyi Yaokong Remotes, I will hopefully be able to generate a lot of AROs and set up a strong hacker network, making use of Overclock for B2 Flash Pulses on the Chaiyi, Fairy Dust to protect the Yan Huo etc. The Engineer will keep the Remotes going and my Yan Huo mobile. The Doctor will try to revive vital parts of my army if necessary. Both my doctor and my engineer have a Yaozao at their disposal. Xi Zhuang will be used as a deployment zone guard and/or roadbump for the enemy. The Pangguling Remote will let him resupply his Mad Traps while also helping the Tigers to land where they are supposed to. Lastly, the Kanren will be another roadbump with his Mad Traps and the additional benefit of being able to bisect things with his Monofilament CC weapon. He can also resupply from the Pangguling.
  9. The Yan Huo does become more and more tempting, indeed ... Do you prefer HRMC over the 2 x ML? Two impact templates do sound juicy, but 5 dice is a lot of dice.
  10. Hey guys, thanks for poining out the synergy with EVO/Controlled Jump - I didn't know either of those two buffs existed! As for the combat groups, it's a nice way of getting more overall orders on the Tigers, but with the Miniatures I've got, it's going to be hard to accomplish. Would you suggest putting a particular Tiger in the seperate group? Sadly I'm not a big fan of Kuang Shi models, so I probably wouldn't buy into those at this point in time. If they get a rework in the near future, however, this might change, because I like their general concept and point efficiency. This is what I could manage: Tiger Alpha Strike ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 18 HSIEN Lieutenant HMG, Nanopulser / Pistol, AP CCW.

  11. I want to try something unorthodox for my next few friendly matches: The premise is a Chinese only force with three Tiger Soldiers as a core concept. I'm aware it's not very optimised, but I still hope to catch my opponent off guard. The idea is to go ham with the Tigers and wreak havoc at turn 1, while everyone else stay in position for the reactive turn, covering fire lanes and putting roadbumps between the enemy and the objectives. With the Guilang repeater and two hackers I have a decent answer to TAGs and HI and with four Specialists, I should be flexible enough in terms of Objectives as well. Any advice on improving the list or general strategy with these units is always appreciated!

  12. Thankfully they got the right idea and made an alternative head for the Shikami. It's a gorgeous model now
  13. Are we sure that Fatality will only work for the Spitfire variant of the Khawarij? It would be a nice boost for the rifle/ls as well. Since it appears to be rather strong, I'd consider restricting it to the LT variants for both Tarik and Khawarij, so it does come with a tradeoff.
  14. Good morning, do you happen to have any of these available: - Dzanbazan HMG and Hacker - Leila Sharif (Dire Foes 6) - The two Ghazi Muttawias with Jammers - A spare Haqq Spitfire Have a nice day!
  15. Following your advice and taking away one of the doctors, I can field a repeater Remote as well. This way I can make better use of my hackers without exposing them to unnecessary danger: Haqqislam ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 110 NAFFATÛN Lieutenant Rifle + Light Flamethrower, Grenades / Pistol, Knife.
