  1. You sir, are a mean destroyer of little boys' dreams
  2. .... and easy to implement! We just need to mod the base so that we can place her S2 on the S4 base with Cetus (unless the hand petting Cetus is attached to it in the model... but I really hope it is not) Give her mechanical transmutation with a basic S2 profile without guard and an S4 profile with guard (and, I would recommend, climbing plus). That would make her very characterful and, perhaps, useful within both the sectorial and the vanilla army lists.
  3. I tried Andromeda with lackluster results... S4 is really a pain in the a*s (she cannot enter buildings from most scenery manufacturers, nor objective rooms nor, in theory, use most of the available stairs) and the stats are not that great... I believe she was meant to provide some mid-field preence to the phalanx but, frankly, I believe she is just an eaxsy kill for the enemy if you try to do that. A smaller silouhette would vastly improve her. Reading the fluff on the store, it looks like she brings Cetus with her in a briefcase... Maybe that means she will get something like "mechanical transmutation" enabling her to revert to silouhette 2? That would be supercool!
  4. This is actually a very good idea! I second this! Maybe CB could try this for the next season?
  5. Well... there are lots of working nomads lists with only 10 orders. Just a few examples: - Corregidor: MB Pain train - Bakunin: Full Riot Grrls + Taskmasters - Vanilla: Kriza + Multiple Spektrs + Intruders
  6. Issue is: I'd like to go full riot grrls, so i'm aiming at a single combat group... I'm imagining something like this: Jurisdictional Command of Bakunin ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 10 RIOT GRRL Missile Launcher / Pistol, Knife. (2 | 33) RIOT GRRL Boarding Shotgun, Stun Grenades + TinBot B (Deflector L2) / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 30) RIOT GRRL Spitfire / Pistol, Knife. (2 | 34) RIOT GRRL Combi Rifle, Blitzen, Stun Grenades / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 29) RIOT GRRL Combi Rifle, Blitzen, Stun Grenades / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 29) TASKMASTER Lieutenant Red Fury, Pulzar, CrazyKoalas + TinBot A (Deflector L1) / Heavy Pistol, DA CCW. (1 | 53) SALYUT Hacker (EVO Hacking Device) Electric Pulse. (0.5 | 25) CLOCKMAKER Combi Rifle, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 18) ZONDBOT Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) ZONDBOT Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) ZERO (Minelayer) Combi Rifle, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 19) ZERO Hacker (Killer Hacking Device) Combi Rifle, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 21) 6 SWC | 297 Points Open in Infinity Army I was wondering wether including Zoe & PI-well... I decided not to because my engineer is vital and I do not want it to be fried by a KHD.
  7. Hy guys... I was wondering... What's the best Bakunin Lieutenant option for Hunting Party in your opinion? I'm leaning toward playing a full Riot Grrl fireteam (3x Blitzen, combi and stun grenades, spitfire, missile launcher) to abuse Blitzens and Stun grenades. However I'm kinda lost on who to pick as a lieuenenant. Our options are: - Moderator: cheap and simple... However I feel like it is a very squishy choice. - Reverend Moira: a little bit better, but the 1 SWC cost hurts and she has PH 12 and BTS 0, making her very vulnerable to ADHL and E/M weaponry. Further, it is costly and you are basically paying 30 pts and 1 SWC for a model which will not contribute to the fight. - Reverend custodier: She brings more utility than the Moira but she is vulnerable to Isolating CLAW programs - Kusanagi: Has the same flaws of the Moira Lieutenant but she is even more expensive. A sub-par choice in hunting party IMHO - TaskMaster (red fury and CK): I like him. He is sturdy and sports decent PH 14 and BTS 6, as well as bringing Koalas that will enhance his protection. However, he is vulnerable to Hacking. I am leaning towad the Moderator (hide him at all costs!) or the Taskmaster (Maybe coupled with a EVO Zond, in rder to reload Koalas and the ADHL, as well as providing general support through Fairy dust and GADGET EVO for the Riot link) What's your opinion?
  8. The Outrage box is out... But are we getting rules for these guys?
  9. I dunno if the high cost will be enough of a drawback but the 360 visor version is rock solid IMHO. It is brutal in the active turn through Full Auto and you can put it in suppressive fire without bothering about anyone sneaking behind you (You have to worry about enemy hackers but that's what KHD zeroes are for)
  10. I don't think this list is very... playable... You have crammed too many toys IMHO. I would recommend the following: Drop penthesilea, Machaon (Who are you going to heal? If he's there for him being a specialist, I'm sorry but this list, with only 2 specialists, can work only in direct action missions) and the 2 netrods. Then use these points for getting to at least 10 regular orders. A Thora Fireteam led by thrasymedes looks like a nice option. I would also make Achilles the lieutenant and replace the Hacker with a Myrmidon officer with Boarding Shotgun and eclypse... but ehy... it's your list, not mine
  11. This! BTW, Valette already plays the game with solid MO lists, so I don't think that "It's not your list, it's you" is the kind of suggestion he is looking for. I tried CHA only a few times but I can tell that the Grey+Isobel+volunteers link looks like the obvious choice for your playstyle. Of course, the grey is not a HMG-Hospitaller but I believe they play pretty similar in many ways. Add SAS and Uxia for support but I believe they play pretty differently from TO spec sergeants. Their cost and the lackluster weapons of the FO profile mean that if you aim at playing them as mere button pushers you will waste a lot of points.
  12. Frankly, it is a relatively solid and pretty "standard" list. If I HAD to make suggestions, i would find points to upgrade a little the Thorakitai Fireteam as follows: - A forward observer thorakitai costs only 1 point more and it is INCREDIBLY better. Try to upgrade the 12 points thoras to 13 points' FO thoras - A Feuerbach would be a nice addition! A long range weapong with enough punch to threaten TAGs and HI. Or a HMG to provide you a high burst long-range weapon. If you cannot spare the SWC, the cheaper Light rocket launcher is nice as well. To find the points I would: - ditch one of the yudbots - remove one devabot from scylla - replace the Zayin with a cheaper drone, possibly a Daleth As generatl strategy tips I would remind you: - Atalanta is NOT a good ARO piece, unless you have a sniper nest close to the edge of the table to abuse your longer range. I know, she has BS 17 but she still rolls only one die. A linked HMG will tear her apart unless you can safely throw a smoke grenade to block line of sight to her. - remember to spare the order to impersonate Scylla and her bots - Beware of mines and camo infltrators that could lay mines on your path. Your main attack vector is a link team that heavily relies on ODD and NWI: both useless against mines. a clever opponent will try to stop you using mines, even sacrifying some cheap troopers for the purpose (like Zeros or Foxtrots)
  13. Thanks guys. Sgt. rocks nailed it for me... I'm not willing to go through the same torture session that I experienced assembling Dakinis. I'll wait for a re-sculpt. Btw, I'm a little disappointed by the lack of new SAS. The old ones look so TIIINYYYYYYYYY!!!
  14. I really look forward to get my hands on this starter. I absolutely love all the models. As a side note, I would like to ask you guys a suggestion: I really would like to play wulvers, so I was wondering if it would be worth to buy the existing box or if I should wait for a re-sculpt. So the question is: How old are the current wulver sculpts?! Old enough to reasonably expect a re-sculpt or not?!
  15. A good movie. However, IMHO, its VERY simple plot fails in develivering a serious reflection on what "being a human" means (which is the core concept of the whole GitS franchise). So I left the theatre feeling a little disappointed. Fortunately, the acting is decent, visuals are outstanding and the pace of the movie is good.
