  1. I'm a big fan of the Sogarat Haris. It limits the rest of your army, but you have a very durable hammer. I have also been know to simply set my Sogarats, more often than not the FB, on top of a roof with LoS to as much of the table as possible as an ARO piece. He is hard to dislodge and the FB ARO is hard to deal with. That said, it's hard to justify Sogarats with the Suryat SWC box now. Kornak, Raktorak and three Suryats is far more flexible and hits just as hard.
  2. That is the key phrase. If you think you can make it work you will. The main task would be is to swap some of the regular units into Group 1 to get those irregular orders distributed. As it sits, Group 1 has a very limited ability to get any work done in the active turn. Everyone is greedy with their orders and won't share. I would split one each of the Bashi and Mutt's into Group 2 and move 3-4 regular units into Group 1. Which units I couldn't say, but I think a slightly more even distribution of orders is needed. This is how I think I might run your list. Haqq 300 ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 14 2 1 BASHI BAZOUK Submachine Gun, Chain-colt / Pistol, CC Weapon. (0 | 12) MUTTAWI'AH Chain Rifle, E/Marat, Jammer, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 5) JANISSARY Akbar Doctor (MediKit) AP Rifle + Light Shotgun / Pistol, CCW. (0 | 41) NASMAT Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) TUAREG Sniper Rifle, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 33) AZRA'IL AP HMG / Pistol, Knife. (2 | 41) BARID Hacker (Hacking Device) Lieutenant Rifle + Pitcher / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 21) GROUP 26 2 1 BASHI BAZOUK Boarding Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 15) MUTTAWI'AH Chain Rifle, E/Marat, Jammer, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 5) GHULAM (Forward Observer) Rifle + Light Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 13) GHULAM Doctor Plus (MediKit) Rifle + Light Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 16) NASMAT Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) NAFFATÛN Rifle + Light Flamethrower, Grenades / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12) DJANBAZAN Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 31) HAWWA' Hacker (Assault Hacking Device) Boarding Shotgun, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 26) HAFZA Spitfire / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 22) 5.5 SWC | 299 Points Open in Infinity Army It may not work for you, but I think it distributes the orders a little more efficiently for how I would run it.
  3. MAF can win. We are just more straight forward about it than other factions. Besides, learning how to play will take you a while, winning will come a little later no matter what army you play. What to buy? That is the inevitable question that has no good answer. Working with a limited budget I would play a few games and get a feel for the faction with the starter. Then proxy some units to figure out where to go. My go to options are Kornak, Daturazi, Drones, Ikadrons, and then whichever way you want to go. Dr. Worm ( Med-tech Obsidon medchanoid ) is a good choice for a specialist Doctor and Engineer. The rest all fall into how you want to play. The Raicho is an average heavy TAG. It can get work done and people are scared of it. Respect must be given to the Multi-HMG. It's just not flashy or special. The new pilot profile does give it a bit more umph.
  4. Yes, the Nexus doesn't exist as a model yet. My point earlier is to get to know what you have. There are a lot of useful units you don't have, but with the Onyx box you have what you need and a lot to learn before adding even more as a new player. The wisdom is that if your Sniper is midfield he is less likely to find targets in his good range. That doesn't me he can't be effective and get stuff done, it's that he is less likely to be getting his +3 for range against targets. It's a trade off. If you are planning on running a Unidron Core, the B2 Flash Pulse from the FO's becomes just as important an ARO piece as as that sniper. I will run snipers in fireteams that act in midfield, but I know where I am trading range bands between weapons and which models will become the focus of actions on the table. It's all a game of trade offs. You can make bad lists. They are lists that are incapable of completing the mission you are playing at the time.
  5. Infinity takes some adjustment in mindset and approach compared to other games. Armies have so many different ways to be played that it simply takes time and getting beat up to figure out how you like to approach the game. It boils down to the fact that in Infinity, two players given the same list won't play the same way. If everyone is running proxies, testing stuff, then go for it. It's a good way to figure out what units you want to buy first and what direction to go in. 150 points is tough for Onyx. The cost of most units is high enough that getting 150 points on the table requires a lot of compromise.
  6. First, look up Captain Spud's Hacking Helper. He single handedly saved hacking in Infinity. Super useful tool. Second, you are gonna suck until you learn how YOU want and like to play Infinity. Third, it's a valid list. Personally I wouldn't go whole hog into using proxies for half your army. Learn and use the models you have. It takes time and experience to figure out how you want to play Infinity and how you want to play Onyx. With a league involved, I would really try to keep proxies down to a minimum.
  7. It wouldn't be any different than what goes on now with students studying history or archeology. I would guess that there is a brisk business with academics studying a group of living "dead" cultures. And you would get rich tourists touring the third world planet to see the primitives and go big game hunting.
  8. I took it as inspired by Bell helicopters (including the Osprey) in general, with a bit of small passenger jet.
  9. I would think Nomad ships would run themselves in a similar fashion to the moon colony in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. Problems being taken care of quickly, locally, and ruthlessly. Stupid people who do stupid thing get dealt with quickly. The more likely to harm the ship or a large group of people the worse the punishment.
  10. I'm a bit surprised that no one has mentioned "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress." For me that books representation of day to day life on the moon is the basis for my view of Nomad ship life.
  11. So, they teased a Military Orders PanO bust with two heads. I'm calling for Angus. One normal head one horribly mangled from whatever he managed to fail at.
  12. Just imagine the backer boost that would have come from a Fat Yaun Yaun exclusive instead of the Yu Jing pilot!
  13. So, are we going to get a Fat Yaun Yaun bust?
  14. Isn't this supposed to be a 75mm full model? If so she is far from useable on the table top.
  15. Well, the Onyx 300 point box is the ultimate gateway to vanilla CA and two sectoral armies. Obviously it's an Onyx army, it can easily be expanded to be run as a vanilla force, and with another box or two it becomes a MAF force.
