  1. I think If you are prone AND your silhouette is totally at a higher elevation than your opponent, then you do functionally get cover from the ground.
  2. Perversely, at the moment I find Switch making it in to nearly every list. * She plays nice with Joan * I usually take a war cor or a tech-bee, but not always both so she can pretend to be the one I didn't take, unless I take joan ofc and then HPJ1 is just dandy to play low level mind games. * I always take some form of repeater REM, and she just feels sensible to take due to that alone. I'm going to be sad when she goes.
  3. How good is an AD hmg ? I've not had a chance to try it yet.
  4. Where might a curious soul find a catalog of these lists?
  5. So! It's not quite as spectacular as what you guys are doing, but in lieu of any pointers I just went ahead and had a stab at the kitbashing. Rao became a croc hacker, with just a visor. My plan is to file some of the rounded edges to more of a hard edge when it's set. The sniper croc man got combined with fusilier spec op arms, though I had to bulk out his under arms to get them to sit right. Also the bag Rao normally doesn't seem appropriate for an infiltrating model, so I green stuffed over the hole it left. Probably the hardest thing i've had to try to do so far, i'm still very new to this sculpting malarky. My thoughts were the 'non-helmet'ness of them ties them together, as well as the leg armour is all the same. I think it worked out better to make the actual croc man body less croccy and more in line with regular troopers because it makes them sit together nicer. That is, rather than trying to make Rao more croccy, which is beyond my ability. That said I could potentially try to replicate the knife on the hackers left leg?..That looks really hard though. I don't have any jewellers saws to make fancy cuts (yet) so repositioning limbs is beyond me (for now).
  6. I use knight of the holy sepulchre either with Joan or not at all. It's hard to justify him as a replacement for her as she just gives you so much more. I think the internal skew comes from the fact that units are balanced around AVA, and characters end up getting pushed more because you can only ever have one, so when you have a single slot left in your army why wouldn't you take the character ?
  7. You only feel the burn on this if you have a meta with a lot of players that love assassin models. My local yu Jing player is too deep into ISS to care about oniwabans and my local nomad player is too timid to try rolling for infiltration so I can usually run Joan with impunity.
  8. I'm gonna hijack this thread a little and ask for critique on my vanilla Joan list too. I'm taking advise from you croc lovers , the mission is to be supremacy : Supremacy? ──────────────────────────────────────────────────GROUP 110 JOAN OF ARC Lieutenant MULTI Rifle, Nanopulser / Pistol, DA CCW.

  9. This is exactly how I feel about her. My decision making process is 'do I want a core link of fusies, or do I want inspiring leadership?'. I rarely play a list without either of those things, unless it's a vanilla tag list. Sometimes even then, though...
  10. Goddamnit @Killionaire , stop being a continuing source of inspiritation! I didn't know I needed to pick up an Emily until I saw your conversion. Good job recapturing some of her original hairstyle.
  11. Ive been using Hexas KHD as my go to, but they don't infiltrate. I tell a lie actually, I did use a model as a proxy croc man FO in my last tourny, but thats the only time i've used one of them specifically. I think I must have mentally written these tricks off as Haqq and Nomad tools because I've seen these abilities more frequently on their models. So is it possible to play at a competitive level without a croc man or two in vanilla? Is the answer 'yes, so long as you are taking that one order seargent profile' ?
  12. I've got my eyes on how to build a pair of combi croc men, how vital are croc men to vanilla pano? I've always made do without using them but I'm seeing them crop up more and more in lists so I'm taking the plunge.
  13. Pretty much It can be nice to push a specialist towards an objective as one of the 4 also, so in that situation I would be moving a pathfinder most likely.
  14. When I take Joan I ask myself, what are the 3 other things I'm moving / putting on suppression with her free coordinated move every turn? Your real option is Joan, 2 pathfinders and konstantinos? That doesn't feel like it has many teeth, and is 4 functional combi rifles range bands. You get some utility moving fugazis to get a sensor sweep and repeater cover, but thats only really utility. I'd be tempted to find space for a bulleteer spitfire, or an hmg unit of some kind (kamau/bagh/nisse), or a TOFOOS ? Putting a bunch of dudes in midfield on suppression that have ODD/TO is kind of a nice thing to be able to do 'for free' if you want it.
