  1. If I hadn't just sliced up my Acon Montesa bits I would be slicing them up for this! I love it and want to use it for my Assault Hacker/Multi Rifle Swiss.
  2. I'm looking forward to pairing him with an assault hacker and Immobilizing stuff then chopping it to bits with Monofilament. Sweet sweet revenge for having it done to me all the time.
  3. Have played the Swiss Assault Hacker in Hunting Party. Can confirm that he is baller as hell. Surprise Shot ADHL at -9 or -12 to shoot back really helps mitigate B1. The Hexa has an ADHL too, so you can set up multiple Surprise Shot TO situations. Obviously better on the Swiss because BS15 allows you to take shots from your +0 range and not miss half the time.
  4. "We see your Antipodes and raise you robot attack wolves." As long as Sval wish listing is happening, I've been playing the Blizzard-6 lists a bit lately. Overall I'm enjoying them a lot and aside from some list construction issues (lack of Engineer made me very sad last night when my Jotum caught a Blitzen in the face first turn...) I think that the sectorial will have some cool options. Mixed links are baller. The one with the Spec. Sergeant HRL + Spec Serg. Hacker + Hospitaller Doctor is super toolboxy and is a great objective claiming link. Saito Togan and Sforza are clearly stand ins for units that are still in development. The possibility of something (even at AVA1) with some sort of visual mod, infiltration, great CC and smoke is serious business. Even if it only has some of those features, it will still be a valuable addition. Sforza I am less excited about, the surprise shot ADHL is fun and Holo2 is nifty, but it's not something that the sectorial really needs. Just for kicks though, let's stat out the Togan-expy. 4-4 CC23 BS12 PH12 WIP13 ARM1 BTS0 W1 S2 AVA1 (in both sectorial and vanilla) Infiltration, TO Camo, Mountain Terrain or Multiterrain, Martial Arts L3 Boarding Shotgun, Smoke Grenades, Pistol, Shock CCW ... 0 SWC 36 pt Forward Observer, Combi-Rifle, Smoke Grenades, Pistol, DA CCW ... 0 SWC 40 pt I am terrible at coming up with point costs so I kinda based the cost on the Ninja (similar statline) and then amped up the points for the sheer utility of it. Considering slapping 0.5 SWC onto it as it's a tool box of a unit especially with ready access to Nisse links.
  5. I am so in. This game needs more Norse mythology.
  6. I don't have any experience fielding the Cutter (...yet...) But I'll take a stab at answering. Yes, some TAGs are meant to be Distraction Carnifexes - see: Jotum - but the Cutter is meant to be an assault piece that the list gets built around. Use Skirmishers to remove all the MSV2 pieces and fire weapons, then go to town with a 6-4 BS15 TO Camo Multi HMG. Used properly it defines the whole game by forcing your opponent to deal with it, respect it, or avoid it.
  7. I've been on board the 10-order train since ITS9 was announced, and finally got a chance to play last night. Played 17-order Tohaa in Hunting Party, which was really a weird experience. After turn 1 all conventions of a standard Infinity game go out the window and it becomes a glue gun fest. We ended the game in a 1-3 low-scoring mess - 1 antenna each, 2 glued specialists each, no glued LTs, he scored his classifieds and I didn't.

(0 | 8) 5.5 SWC | 299 PointsOpen in Infinity Army Overall I really liked the list, the Locust is a really good speed bump especially if you deploy him prone on a tall building and he lobs drop bears into a mob of 8 models. It was my first game using a Swiss Guard and it really showed - I deployed the TO token poorly (I took initiative and deployed him as a marker to get the order) and had to spend an order running him away from said huge mob of Tohaa so we wouldn't be trivially discovered and killed. The TO Surprise Shot ADHL is some serious business - handing out a -12 or -9 really helps you stick the B1 glue gun shot. The Swiss also has the raw BS to use the ADHL at less-than-optimal range, so I really like him as a package for hunting specialists. Overall I think I would replace the Peacemaker with something else and try to upgrade one of the Fugazi - the Peacemaker was a cute idea for a midfield firebase but the Locust can usually handle himself, and it is just too big to easily maneuver around. Things I liked: the FK LT. Pretty resistant to getting stunned or glued thanks to BTS9 and Phys14, able to put the LT order to good use, and since LT choice is open information I didn't care that he was obvious. I also liked the Swiss and the Hexa, as previously stated TO Surprise Shot ADHL is pretty good. The Nisse is always a star (until he eats a double LRL crit!) and I liked the Kamau MSV MSR as well. It's really hard to dislike something with MSV2, BS13, Mimetism and an MSR. What I disliked: Peacemaker, for reasons previously stated. My deployment in general still needs work, I was struggling to get the Swiss to safety and then struggled to get him to revelant objective grabs. I also wish I had a slightly faster assault piece, either a Bulleteer or a TAG, to get up the board and contribute. The Nisse is great but really limited to staying in my DZ, and the Swiss has trouble breaking out of the DZ to get into Multi Rifle range.
  8. Awesome, thanks! Guess I should keep track of that thread too.
  9. So do we know what the missing profile in Blizzard-6 Force C is? Has CB released any sort of hotfix to the PDF? Is the Spanish version correct (like the Beyond Icestorm PDFs)? I really want to give Force C a run soon but I don't want to put guesswork into the list.
  10. I tried to get a picture but my camera can't focus into the shadows (and I didn't take any WIP pics). Anyways, it was rather a difficult repose as far as single arm reposes go. I removed the whole arm from the model (as it was already built) and cut the arm above the elbow. I also broke the join at the wrist. Since the wrist angles out kind of strangely, I realized that I'd need to drill and pin at angles and fill in the gap with Greenstuff. So I dropped a pin between the upper arm and the elbow, angled the elbow out, then pinned a long pin (~8-10mm end to end) into the wrist join of the gun. To aid in keeping the model together, I anchored the wrist pin in both ends, and then glued the gun to the right chest armor. The gun roughly lines up with the centerline of the Jotum's head and should be angled down slightly. I sculpted Greenstuff into the exposed pin, then anchored on the arm shield to disguise the roughest patch. Hope this helps! I wish I had taken some WIP photos along the way. PS here is the inspiration for the mod, a much better done version that I took a picture of a Gen Con! If you know who did this please let them know that they are super awesome.
  11. Speaking of arm reposes, I destroyed a perfectly good Jotum last night. Paint job still needs some work, but I'm very happy with the arm repose.
  12. The female Fusilier arms from OpIce also work great on the MSR Hexa.
  13. Well done indeed! I love the blends on the greys and the orange to red transitions. Can't wait to see some Riot Grrls and some more remotes.
  14. Is now the time we can start wish listing new Nisse profiles? If so I'll start with a Shock Marksman Rifle. Would be a super credible midfield link with the Haris dude and a Paramedic/KHD for the specialist.
  15. Oh dearie me, I am so glad that I'm painting my PanO in Svalarheima snow camo. Nisse Haris? Order Sergeant Haris with a Hospitaller? KHD Nisse? Switch doesn't exist anymore? VIABLE 10 ORDER LISTS THAT CAN'T BE COMMAND TOKEN'D??!! SMOKE IN PANO???!!!!!! I am positively turgid.
