  1. So, this is the first list I've built on my own. Played sample games and watched some videos. Trying to do something a little different than the 2x4 Team builds that it seems like everyone is running. Thus, the list: First Try ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 19 HECTOR Lieutenant Plasma Rifle, Nanopulser, Stun Grenades + 1 TinBot A / Heavy Pistol, EXP CC Weapon. (0 | 71) ACMON Combi Rifle, Panzerfaust, Nimbus Grenades, D-Charges / 2 Breaker Pistols, Knife. (0 | 27) DACTYL Doctor (MediKit) Combi Rifle, Adhesive-Launcher, Nimbus Grenades / 2 Breaker Pistols, Knife. (0 | 23) PHOENIX Heavy Rocket Launcher, Nanopulser, Smoke Grenades / Heavy Pistol, DA CCW. (2 | 40) MYRMIDON OFFICER (Chain of Command) Boarding Shotgun, Nanopulser, Eclipse Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW. (1 | 35) MYRMIDON Chain Rifle, Nanopulser, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW. (0 | 16) EKDROMOS Hacker (Assault Hacking Device) Chain Rifle, Nanopulser / Pistol, DA CCW. (0.5 | 26) TEUCER (X Visor) Feuerbach, Nanopulser / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 41) EKDROMOS Chain Rifle, Nanopulser / Pistol, DA CCW. (0 | 20) 5 SWC | 299 Points Open in Infinity Army My intended tactics: Ekdromoi Contingent - Backfield threat and support. Has a specialist. Would prefer to have diomedes or the other one equipped for a different range band, but chain rifle fit, and will make it harder to outflank/hunt down my one guy. Between MA:3 and super jump, should hopefully get some work done hunting cheerleaders and snipers and/or forcing my opponent to spend orders in her own backfield. Myrmidon Contingent - Phoenix/Officer/Chain Rifle Fireteam - Have something for most of the range brackets, this would be the higher risk team with smoke/eclipse/ODD and can claim objectives and/or counterforce enemy units in the midfield. Has some good active turn platforms and utility. Dactyl Contingent - Hektor/Acmon/Dactyl Doc - Again, something for most range brackets, what seem like solid active turn platforms, specialists. Options to disrupt opponent's strategy. Teucer - 'nuff said? Overwatch with real potential on active turn -------------- Questions: How do ODD and fireteams interact? Phoenix doesn't have one? Effectiveness of Ekdromoi? Myrmidon officer vs Myrmidon hacker? I want a specialist in both teams and CoC counts/has good utility, and I like eclipse grenades, BUT I also don't really know much about hacking as a strategic choice. Esp w Steel Phalanx. Are 10 orders [9 + Strategos 1] enough for a build that will have 4-5 units competing for them?
  2. Okay, so, as mentioned this is my first infinity list. I played an Ariadna vs PanO practice game at my FLGS a year or two back which I enjoyed, and am very disappointed w 40k 8e, so thought this would be a great time. That said, my knowledge is exclusively from reading the rulebook and an occasional article online. I love the homeridae fluff, as well as the real life books/heroes, so I wanted to give that a shot as my first army. The general idea is: use Ekdromoi to jump right into the center or backfield and force the enemy to deal with the forward party [first group] whilst I move Achilles up and into the action [middle group] with some powerful backfield stuff to keep from getting swamped/outflanked [last group]. The Ekdromoi would probably be mainly ORAs active/prosecute targets of opportunity with achilles' crew moving up as Active phase units. List: Diomedes - Lt - 42 pts Ekdromos - Hacker - 26 pts Ekdromos - HMG - 37 pts ----- Achilles - Combi Rifle - 73 Pts Sophotect - Combi Rifle - 31 Pts Myrmidon - Chain Rifle - 16 Pts ------ Agema - MULTI sniper rifle - 30 pts Teacher - X Visor/Feuerbach - 41 Pts Netrod - 4 pts 9 Orders/5 SWC Questions: Thoughts on general build/strategy? I don't need to worry about fire teams and what not in regular Infinity right? Or should I be building around that? Ideas on where to carve out extra pts for that last order w/o major changes? Is taking the ekdromos hacker worth it [seemed to be a good way to get one up close & provide a nice way to close off a corner w the chain rifle]? Also, as a note, can someone explain the different levels of Teucer, seems like the 'cheapest' one has the best gear, between fuerbach and x-visorl? I was also thinking of swapping Teucer for another Agema and taking either Acmon w a Panzerfaust or one of the Dactyls with the sticky launcher for something that can pack more of a punch than the myrmidon's super close range weapon. Thoughts?
