Hello

So I'm going to have a game soon and I want to field my Marut.

The mission is Frontline and it'll be my first time using Marut and frist time playing Frontline. so I would like some list advice just to see what works.

The idea behind this list is that Marut will go forward and kills stuff. Whilst the myrmidon, officer and post-human mk1 follow the Marut around. I could have the officer sit back but suppression and extra smoke could be useful as it reduces fire on the Marut. Daysu will be there to counter any hackers, I could have taken naga but for this list, I think Daysu works better as it's tougher. My problem with this list is I think it's got a lot of not rem's and only 1 paramedic. Then again every time I try to heal a model they usually die.

What do people think?

The key to TAG play is to skirmish at first, waiting for a gap to exploit. Frontline even more so as you need to conserve points. 

One way is to have cheaper units which can advance as the enemy hides from the reach of the tag and cause trouble. Then bringing the tag up.

whatever you do, don't just advance really far up, run out of orders and go onto suppression and pray.

Thanks. In my last game with aleph, I made the mistake of sending hector too far forward.

I was thinking lower Daysu to naga with KHD and drop myrmidon to get a Garuda with a  boarding shotgun.

That's fairly close to what I run as my general all comers list. And yes the key to Marut is keeping in cover, using lots of smoke, and keeping in a good rangeband.

Yeah, that was is a good point.

Saldy when I had my game, well I've been teaching AOS and 40k to a lot of kids at a club I help run. So I forgot some of the Infinity rules.

And I forgot that I could see through smoke.

Aww well, lessons learned. Marut died after failing 4 arm rolls in a row to fire damage. At least I've remembered that lesson next time.

If you were only hit with 1 HFT that's 0.8% chance of happening.

That almost beats my record of losing 3 wounds on a TAG to a Fusiler Combi (0.5%).

First time I fielded my Marut, it got glued to the spot before getting a chance to fire – I then learned, never to allow it out of the house without an engineer.

In a later game, I had my revenge vs. the same player, when I reminded him, that he'd overlooked a Panzerfaust ARO, he one-shot ponytail girl, the sophotect pressed 'reboot', and ponytail had gunned down the ariadnans by the end of turn 2. There really is nothing like a huge silhouette to hide your specialist, ARM 8 and two levels of unconsciousness to make a grown man cry.

See the fun thing was the Marut was actually behind a smoke cloud and in cover, but the Marut was just bigger than the cover. Meaning when the HFT shot the Marut's remote (he had just the right angle) the blast JUST nipped the Marut. this was after it had been healed for 2 wounds. Ahh well it was funny. ;)  I'd rather lose and have fun than win and not have fun.
