  1. Although eclipse on the Teutons would definitely work in a practical sense, I just can't imagine them from a fluff perspective throwing eclipse grenades...It just seems really out of their character to throw something that blocks LoF. They are pretty hardcore Knights and go through intense combat training and discipline and are described as frenzied mad men when they reach CC (read the Teutonic order fluff in the HSN3 guidebook that isn't online and not part of the unit fluff and you'll see what I mean.) For them to be finesse like and careful using grenades feels kind of...Weird. I'm not saying it wouldn't work on the table, it would and they are a good candidate for it but then I'm not sure they would feel like the crazy mad Teutonic Knights anymore. I think I'd prefer them to have more weapon profiles to really aid them in that 8 - 16" mad dash towards the enemy other than a combi rifle. An assault pistol, shotgun or SMG or something.
  2. I can't help but think that combis everywhere even on HIs in PanO was a twofold decision by CB to keep points costs low (restricted MULTIs) while enabling units to SF to make the most of PanOs edge in BS and defensive mod gear where available. I don't think I've ever watched a game involving PanO where the PanO player isn't chucking out SF everywhere via co ordinated orders and/or Joan, it seems to be a much more staple tactic for PanO in the reactive turn compared to other factions. Combis everywhere could also just be a design choice to reflect military standardisation like @Barakiel said
  3. Good point!
  4. True, probably just my preference. I usually attack the controller when I know my unit has little hope of surviving.
  5. Ahh okay I thought you were trying to say he couldn't do the jump at all. I think most of the time though moving along the ground or vaulting things is more common to gain cover. Jumping with the Seraph is usually for unexpected tricks against enemy positions. If your opponent had the choice of DTWing the Seraph or Auxbot in ARO he's probably going to DTW the Seraph anyway so it's not a big deal, the enemy will still probably die from the spitfire.
  6. Why is jumping 6" up onto a building not possible?
  7. They look amazing, I would love to play them. The only one I probably wouldn't take in the link is the hacker because of killer hacker vulnerability. Leave that to the Nagas who have infiltration and marker state with better WIP. Which makes the link even cheaper Shock Army of Acontecimento ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 5 BAGH-MARI HMG / Pistol, Knife.

  8. It's not a huge deal for the Seraph because if you just doing a short skill jump (thanks to super jump) you're probably not gonna break the 8" coherency anyway if you are only jumping 6" max. Most stuff you can just vault anyway and the Auxbot follows around unless you want to specifically jump on or over something.
  9. I can't see them losing panzerfausts to be honest. Magisters aside (as they are not a Knight of the order) the Teutons are the only Knight Order out of the 4 that bring SWC free panzerfausts on a BS 14 platform. What they really need is more skills and additional close quarter weapon profiles like a boarding shotgun or assault pistol. Knights with shotguns are just beasts, especially the Father Knight.
  10. @Phlyk can you add this image to the Order Sergeant page? It's one of the dossiers you missed but it's good resolution
  11. I see double Auxilias in other lists on here quite often. Is that only a vanilla/NCA thing? Would running x2 Order Sergeants / Auxbots in MO be worth it or is it more because Auxilias are cheap and can be specialists where as the Order Sergeants are more combat focused?
  12. It was valiant attempt by Giraldez to try and breathe life back into the old ORCs but Corvus Belli have set the standards too high for them compared with the Icestorm ORC sculpt. The Icestorm sculpt is relatively conversion friendly though so convert away!
  13. Well the OP didn't say it MUST have 6 Magisters, it was more fishing for ideas and opinions and would we run it. All I said was I think I'd prefer 2 Teutons over 3 Magisters that's all
  14. You do realise the first picture in the PoR article is a picture of Omadon's list who was the winner of ITS 2014 with PanO right? And that there is a whole article about that PanO list built for button pushing http://infinitythegame.com/article.php?id=138 That list would still work well now.
