I love Alguacile link teams. I love that they make up for lack of any truly special training or equipment with grit, chutzpah and a bunch of basic tools. From that point of view I even kinda like that they're kinda not quite as good Ghulam. They don't get nothing fancy, but they still get the job done. 

Aguiceles get Lupe. The mother of baby nano dragons gets, dogged, mimitism, specialist, panzerfuast, smoke grenades, and a BS bump. Shes probably one of the best Dire foes IMO.

 

I'll do one more

OMG how I love thee. Give me an extra order, tank stuff like a boss, vaporize HI link teams in one order, links with all his friends.I love him in vanilla, I love him in steel.

Lupe is fantastic. She a bad girl. Adds so much to that team and costs very little really.

But then the Dire Foes are almost all fantastic tbh. Bipandra is duff but the rest are all very useable and useful. I'd love to see more for Sectorals that don't have them!

Yeah I definately I would like to see 1 per sectorial. Also Lupe is good. But Leila is great! Ghulams pip Alguaciles again!

I haven’t played much, so I can’t really talk about favourite profiles from an efficiency point of view, or how well they’ve done for me. But thematically or for cool factor, I really love the Shikami profile. Climbing Plus Super Jumping heavily armoured Ninja with ODD that’s also a specialist, such a cool profile. 

Similarly, I love the Ayyar. Another really cool take on HI (most of my favourite units are HI). 

I love the Charontids and Anethematics, big scary alien biomechanical killing machines. 

Theres a lot more but I’d be here all day.

We've had a recent outbreak of Firefight in our tournaments over here, meaning the Shikami is sort of a liability.

Kanren, they make this list possible for Limited Insertion:

Shout out to my boy the Nikoul he was providing over watch for my Sakiels and killed a lot of Caledonians. 

 

Also Sakiels, they are pretty epic, potential 8 wounds damage from the viral combi? I'll take it!

For me its the humble 112.

Nice fluff, is a doctor so can push buttons and is packing a shotgun for those pesky times he actually has to shoot anything, and more importantly, he has an axe. That axe has repeatedly made sure that my opponent cannot get Coup-de-Grace against me, no sir, in my army, when you go down, we make sure you stay down.

Also, Margot, generally hiding in Duroc's shadow, she has PanO levels of BS and none of the high tech stuff to get there, just sheer skill, which is kind of insane when you think about it. (Imagine what it would be if she got her hands on the high tech stuff).

Spitfire Patroclus is one of my favorites ATM. 

The spitfire is one of the best guns in the game with its favorable range band between 8-24" and B4. Combine that with ODD, BS13 and just as importantly MOV 6-4, then you've got a fantastic gunfighter on your hands.

On top of that you get Smoke and the unique cool of Holo-3, which gives you one nasty surprise for an opponent, that is hard to counter. MSV2 troopers that can neuter his ODD is left guessing vs. Holo-Echoes. Unlike the rest of the myrmidons he isn't frenzied, so will always be able to take advantage of cover, and unlike the Achilles he aspires to be, he is un-Hackable.

He makes for a fantastic alpha strike, that can get into the opponents deployment zone and quickly set up suppression fire.

Patroclus being unhackable, getting smoke and possessing the ability to safely set off mines and perimeter weapons really helps him speed through. He might be the practically fastest unit in the game even with the Su Jian.

Rui Shi, because it always does a ton of work. Even without smoke. Fast, cheap and shooty.

 Pheasant Red Fury has never let me down yet. My first faction is Haqq and I'd love these guys on the team. Last time he came to party he dismantled a wulver link so my oniwaban could kill Wallace. Time before that he shanked a Swissle and then shot Joan to death.

Naffatun, all of them. Great at standing around guarding stuff, great at running at things and dying for the cause. Good Lt option, and toolboxy at the price.

Hassassin Fiday: Because Impersonation + Smoke, a knife and Martial Arts lvl 3 is so insanely fun to play. One day, one day, I will succeed in assassinating an infidel silently so that his comrades don't even notice it!

Hunzakut Forward Observer: Seriously, this guy has everything, at only 18 pts. A cammo infiltrator with Flash pulse -and- Shotgun, for amazing AROs at several range bands, and with mines -and- repeaters for board control, -and- can grab objectives on top of that...amazing. His irregular status isn't even a drawback, as there's no chance you wouldn't wanna use him every turn.

Ghazi Muttawi'ah: What is it with Haqqislam and troopers who have ALL THE EQUIPMENT?

Tarik Mansuri Lieutenant w. Spitfire: Speaking of all the equipment...run him together with an Akbar doctor (as Tarik got a Cube, so you can easily take the 14/20 roll to Akbar doctor him up) and a Farzan Chain of Command, and unleash the super-jumping, fatality-inducing hot-blooded fury. He can murder things in face to face rolls, he can do three wounds in one swing in close combat, he can take a mine to the face and keep standing, he can do speculative shot with his grenades and intuitive attack with his nanopulser, and he can super-jump to get to you...no one is safe against Tarik.

Hassassin Barid: "Not only am I a great hacker lieutenant, I'm also the game's best killer hacker (due to the Lightning program), I can shoot repeaters, and I'm so cheap that I'm an auto-include in every list. And you almost don't need to worry about the enemy hunting me down either, as you can have two of me, or make a Hafza or an Ayyar pretend to be me.)

Intruder with HMG: The Best cammo hunter in the game. His high burst and good range band in combo with MSV2 and camouflage makes him capable at winning a face to face roll against any entrenched ODD/TO Cammo trooper, and he can easily get to where he's needed, too.

Iguana: It's a TAG:..with a repeater. Meaning, every time the enemy try to airdrop or sneak in a hacker to possess or immobilise you, they get a killer hacker ARO blasting their brains out.

Meteor Zonds: Speaking of repeaters...this is a combat-jumping one, with Forward Observer, Sensor and Sat-Lock..

Q-Drone: "I'm like every other faction's Total Reaction HMG bot, except, look, I got mimetism...for free."

Med-Tech Obsidon Medchanoid: Not only does the model look completely swag, it's a DoctorEngineer with D-charges...for 23 pts.

Avatar: This one shouldn't need an explanation, really, but it helps that it looks like it just escaped from Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Proxy Mk.2: "I'm a BS13 TO cammo infiltrator sniper with No Wound Incapacitation and multi sniper rifle, for 24 pts...oh, and you can't hack my G:Jumper any longer."
