New Suryats box, any experiences using them in Onyx

7 posts in this topic

So, these guys look really awesome, I'm not that interested in MAF but I notice they're available as a Duo in Onyx, has anyone tried them? What loadouts did you run and how did they fair?

I'm not an Onyx player (yet), but in MAF they perform well. HMG/HRL as a heavy weapon, and either MRifle+LFT or VS to cover close range. Multi and VS duo is a possibility as well if I can't spare SWC. Combi+LFT is mostly useless, at least for me.

They work pretty well, have no weak points to exploit (though I wouldn't mind them getting +1/2 PH). One thing to notice are good template weapons, particularly HRL and VS.

The Combi would be relevant for Haris purposes, but I think you're almost better off with Kornak instead.  Just from a points/SWC perspective I tend to find it easier to build a list with Kornak and/or a Raktorak, rather than a pure HI fireteam.  Kornak is just pretty hard to beat, what with Strategos L1 (so you can use that Lieutenant order) and 0 SWC for Fireteam: Haris and a Mk12.  The Raktorak both makes the team less expensive and adds a specialist for missions that require one.

I've never fielded them in Onyx.

I don't actually mind the 3 monkey box despite being annoyed at the Janissaries being released the same way as you're probably only ever going to use 2-4 Suryats at once. 

I agree that in MAF a link with Kornak and a Raktorak looks very effective, but I've not seen any discussion on Duos in Onyx/Vanilla.

I think they're a good alternative to the Xeo haris when you're trying to have an anchor on a budget. At the moment, I don't think they'd make it into my Onyx lists though, but would likely make it into MAF.

On another note, I dislike that the tinbot is the same as the Overdron tinbot.

His shield is different; it has the suryat logo instead of the Overdron one. 

 

I can't say I've ever considered taking them in the Onyx lists I've been making.

A month ago I thought about a list for Onyx with a fireteam duo, but for now never tested. 

I believe now they're quite interesting and effective if played in MAF, anyway, new models are amazing :music:.
