  1. Wonder if they will ever put out a Maakrep HMG mini (or any other Maakrep mini besides the MSR)?
  2. I'm going to have to agree with Eciu on this one. I also own the mats, but have yet to play with them. The lines were something I was concerned with when I was looking at the kickstarter initially. But after some debate I figured most players know roughly the sizes of the majority of the common terrain available. Really the only real effect it would have is on new players who don't have that ability to judge the distance based on terrain knowledge. I could see how some people would want to ban them from tournaments, but I don't think it would be an issue for most players.

  4. Now that's a Tohaa Beast TAG I could get behind!
  5. I have totally forgotten, what was this thread supposed to be about?
  6. The main reason I take Chaksa is because they look cool. The 10 point HFT with Sensor is a nice filler unit to add orders to your list. Cheapest Tohaa have. While I like the HMG load out, it usually takes one order for my opponents to take him out. Based on Dasaan's post you can see why. Still it does make your opponent think twice before going down the lane you have covered buy the Chaksa. Oddly I have had almost as much luck with the rocket launcher as an ARO piece. People don't like it when they see a ranged fire template eyeballing their unit.
  7. Personally I don't care about Symbiomates. I use them sometimes, but not all the time. It does make me cringe when people make lists with four Symbiomates in them. Lists like that are what bring the nerfbat to places that usually over correct to the point where something unrelated that was fine before becomes useless. Symbiomates would be ok if people had a little self restraint. Sure your car can go 120mph on the highway, but you really shouldn't be doing it (ok, there was this one time in Texas in the middle of nowhere when I was still in my teens and stupid...). Point is, 4 Symbiomates in one list is overkill. The reason there is AVA 2 for Kaeltar is so you can use both the mates and bombs. Symbiont Armor seems fine to me. Might there still need to be a little tweak here and there? Sure, but it's not badly broken. It's different. Unfortunately when people see different they decide it must be destroyed because it's unnatural. People like to compare LI Symbiont Armor units to HI. They are not the same. In all cases the HI is more powerful than our LI and they can take a hit without losing any stats/skills/equipment. That is the reason they cost so much more. Seems like all armies have that unit that people hate and complain about trying to take down. Often they are told that they shouldn't be going after that unit and that they should be depriving that unit of orders by killing the weaker members of the army. Also that they should be playing to the objective instead of trying to take out that one tough unit. I don't see the difference between those units and our units with a strong Symbiont Armor with a Symbiomate. Besides, it's not that hard to take down a unit with a Symbiomate. I have had my Gorgos sitting there with a Symbiomate and it was taken down in two shots. One rocket launcher shot to take out the mate and the second to knock out the Symbiont Armor. I have had Symbiomates critted off of my units before they could even use them. I don't have time to play that often and this stuff has happened to me.
  8. I tend to make links with a Makaul, Something that hits hard, and a Specialist. Now it does depend on the mission, but more often than not that is how I build them. The other option I do sometimes is the defensive Triad that includes a Gao-Rael Sniper, and two other units based on how many points I have to play with. Sometimes they are filler Kamaels, or Kaeltars that I don't feel like having running around. Or if I do have the points I'll tack on another ranged unit. Sometimes I like to stick a paramedic on the triad to bring the Gao-Rael back up in case he had some bad luck. Honestly, just start making up random triads that look interesting to you. The best part of Tohaa is being able to mix and match. You will learn quickly after a few games roughly what units feel right for you. I love changing it up and trying new options in just about every game I play. I'd recommend going through this thread for additional information:
  9. People were just doing it. There was no reason to do it for the event. Personally I find that my RP works best when sitting at the table with the rest of the people I am RPing with. So much can be lost or misunderstood on forums. Especially on forums that have a global user base.
  10. More predictions of giant S8 TAG Beasts, Sakiel Box, and various random Chaksa please!
  11. No, it was on my local game store's website. That is why I used a question mark.
  12. So I think June looks like this? Aleph: Danavas Hacker and Karkata Remote Ancillary Unit Aleph: Steel Phalanx 300 Point Pack Ariadna: Caledonian Highlander Army, Ariadna Sectorial Starter Pack Haqqislam: Hassassins Ayyar (Viral Pistols) Nomads: Zeros (Combi Rifle/Hacker) PanOceania: Bagh-Mari Unit (HMG) Yu Jing: Ninjas (Multi Sniper/Hacker)
  13. The two items I didn't get in the kickstarter that I would like to get my hands on are the Food Booths and Dumpsters. How long before those show up in stores? Just got everything I ordered in the kickstarter last week. With a new baby about to show up I have not had time to really dig into it. Despite a large tear in the shipping box it looks like I got everything. I flipped through the 32 tiles I ordered and they look fine, but I have yet to put them on a table properly. Looking forward to getting the buses, pickle vans, catwalks, haulers, and the warehouse all built.
  14. Sakiel Box fills holes in your Tohaa army and makes holes in everyone else's!
