  1. Firstly why are all of you arguing about for to use the Intruder on the PanO forum in a thread about how to use MI? --- As many have said they are a lot better in Fireteams. I'm actually in the same boat, I never really use them. BM in SAA as a Core or Haris fireteam yes but not otherwise. I think the Black Friar Albedo profile looks interesting though. ---- Lastly spend some more SWC! You have 7 available but only spent 4!
  2. My favourite is the Dragoes. It's an awesome gun on an awesome body. I like it so much that dispite owning the Tikbalang and Uhlan box I've never used them. However you say you want to do MO so the choice is clear : Seraph.
  3. If you're worried about TAG's the an AHD is a great option. For that reason if you have a TAG a KHD is a good option to defends it. Either ther way a Repeater net makes them better.
  4. A varient of the above, adds some warbands for smoke and for chipping stuff up. Dropping some stuff for a Chasseur might be a good idea though.

  5. I think the key thing are: Killer Hacker + Supporting Repeater net Engineer + Pal Bot(s) - Other stuff is useful though, or becomes more viable e because of the above such as: EVO Hackers - my Repeater net is usually REM based so buffing them and getting another Hacker to ARO is attractive. Assault Hacker - range as above but also used offensively and to take out our TAG if needs be. - Then you need all the usual list building stuff like specialists and ARO units, backup attack pieces, order generators etc.
  6. Sure why not? Make fast HI great again!
  7. It's been on my must try list for a long time. Be nice to see him buffed to 6-2 to retain the 'fast' HI movement...
  8. Wouldn't you be better off selling / trading? What is it do you think you'll enjoy in Shock Army more than Yu Jing?
  9. Plus Discover, and Alert can be really useful http://infinitythewiki.com/en/Alert
  10. I think a 'crutch' is something our lovers try to blame their losses on. - I would say that overeliance on a single aspect of your army can lead to losses if you opponent can counter it, or you are unlucky and lose it. For this reason learning to use other features of your list is a good idea. However do not let others dictate how you play.
  11. Never picked that up. Thanks.
  12. He said they should be working on the Kazaks by now but they've been doing this years releases instead.
  13. One option. Not 100% sold on Van Zant at 200 points but maybe people won't expect him. Kept him in as you have him in all your lists.

Ideally you'd have another Grunt to remake the link if you took casualties but 200 points is tight. Could change the Infiltrating grunt to a normal one to achieve this. There are some other easy swaps in this list. Could change the Marauder for the Boarding Shotgun + Mines profile. Maverick could be a specialist and squeeze in a WarCor in group 2.

  14. Several things I'll say: You can have a 2 man Marauder Fire Team so either get a third one r drop the Harris model. You don't have any high burst guns like HMG's. Or sniper rifles for taking stuff out at long range. You should generally try to spend your SWC. On that note you don't really have anything to put out on ARO to prevent your opponent doing what they want on their turn. Your Devil Dog team is the sort of unit that wants a lot of orders to run across the board to take out their order generators but he's stuck with only 2 orders (his Extremely Impetuous and Irregular). Van Zant Executive order means when he dies you will be in loss of lieutenant which is really not good. I'll have a play around and post something I might use in a minute.
  15. I'll confess I didn't read the original post too closely. Not making a big point just pointing out there are many ways to pick lists, but I like to consider them as a pair. I got a bit confused when you said you'd use this list for Rescue, Supplies, Armory and the other for "Annihilation, Frontline, Firefight, Decapitation, etc." This made me think you were trying to make 2 lists for every mission. ---- On topic: I'd group the mission slightly differently. Supplies does not have an exclusion zone so infiltrating specialists are a bonus. 2 classifieds (1 point each) so specialist variety is valuable. Rescue has an exclusion zone, whilst camo is still useful Infilitration is less so. 1 classified worth 2 points so covering most classified probably a good idea. Firefight does not have an exclusion zone so infiltrating specialists are a bonus. 2 classifieds (1 point each) so specialist variety is valuable. Supremacy does not have an exclusion zone so infiltrating specialists are a bonus. Having markers already in zone helpful. Whilst there is only one classified and only 1 point a REM with baggage could be useful and there is a Hacker bonus. This quick analysis would lead me to run one list tailored for Rescue (a notoriously hard mission to score well in) and one list with plenty of forward deploying elements for the other three.
