  1. Tarik has always done very well for me personally. Either he can hide on a roof, and let his Tuareg Doctor buddy set up a mine, and then spec fire to force aro's or hes gunning people down. I love him as my Rambo and hes a CHEAP rambo too so hes not even going to be the focus of your list. Just an offensive aspect. My other favorite Rambo? Kasym Beg. This guy is brutal and awesome. I love him! 25ish points of anger, rage, and a PHYS 14 EXP ccw.
  2. You can get full Jan link with a second order pool for Yaun Yauns to harass first turn.

  3. I do not miss: 1. 2" column suppresive fire. 2. climbing was a PHYs check (UGH) because oh my god, phys 10 normal troopers WILL NOT CLIMB. 3. Exrah 4. Nomads wiping you out without ever actually being seen because they were the ones with the pitchers. The amount of game sI saw where vanilla Nomads hid in a building, poked around a corner, launched a pitcher down field, then marked someone through the pitcher and just GML spammed. It was terrible because you couldnt do anything about it if you didnt have a hacker (and no one had hackers because...) 5. Hackers were worthless, except for Nomads. 6. If shot from TO camo you had to just take it, no ARO allowed.
  4. Yea I would chalk that up to bad luck. I have had great success with the Ayyar hunting models like Atalanta. Hes actually one of the best models for her.
  5. :is keeping fingers crossed for a Fatality L1 HMG profile:
  6. I am surprised the Ayyar did so poorly vs. Atalanta. He should have been able to get in under the 16" range. Firing from cover, she would be at -9. +3 for Tinbot only gives her a BS 8 to your 13. Must have had horrid luck.
  7. I cant say I have had huge success going second with the Fiday. While its possible, it gives the opponent ample time to set up for him, or just try and discover him. If a full core team goes to discover, firing back for him is extremely risky. but if he deploys outside of the deployment zone he at least has a little room to maneuver around and forces the opponent to redeploy essentially. It is tough though.
  8. If your running a Fiday, you want a full order pool for him. If you go first your list will more than likely only be providing 6 orders for him to pull from. With minelayer fidays I often run them form outside deployment, I am using smoke and re-impersonating. Lay mines to catch that 5 man fire team, lay smoke to CC them one at a time. I have had my fiday use up to 3 orders before they are ever even in combat at times, leaving me (if I go first) only 5 orders left if I a full regular order pool. I would drop the Daylami. Hes 8 points and .5 swc and no backups, they need to be run in threes as the chance of actually dropping them into their position is really only 1/3rd chance.
  9. Awesome, thanks!
  10. Welcome to HB. Haqqislam Batman sectorial.
  11. Yea this thread has been great for conversion ideas that really work and dont look wonky! I want to convert my extra skinny-mini Jan into another Asawira as well. Do you have a pick of the one with the Medic pistol I can see? @Errhile
  12. Out dice them from range. 5 shot HMG at BS 16 before modifiers, will murder even Phoenix. Once the Enomotarchos leader is out, it is just a bunch of chain rifles. Thorakites are also very easy to kill from range. Keep your range, hit their momentum units (Ajax, Eudoros, Thrasy, Hector) and after that it falls apart. Being ARM 4 HI also lets you shoot back when they drop Chain Rifles in close range as well. Most times I never left my Deployment zone. I would drop the heavy hitters, then let the 2 infiltrating Hawwa push buttons. Sometimes they would just blunt the assualt and move up the board pushing buttons or taking quadrants.
