Who should hang out with Neema? (list ideas)

10 posts in this topic

Hello, so after some time away from Infinity, I'm getting my Tohaa out. I got some new models (both the Sukeuls, Igao and Neema. (Neema's model really needs a new pose)

Anyway, I'm looking at making a list using some of my new models. But who should Neema hang out within a triad? Definitely a Makual, but who should be number 3? I was thinking either kumotail, Kosiul (shotgun or k1) or a Sakiel paramedic. I also think of having a Kealtar with COC, so I cna be agresive with Neema.

What do people think? any suggestions?

Thanks

OHHH. When I said I've been out of Infinity for a while, I meant it. thanks ;)

Yeah that much better, well I can use the old model as an Ectros. 

Also back to the original question: Yeah I think Ksouil or  Sukeul.

But if she dies dose that mean you lose her extra command token?

No.

  • You may expend this extra Command Token at any point during the game, even if the user of this Special Skill has not deployed yet, and even if he is in a Null state (Unconscious, Dead, Sepsitorized...).

Honestly there are multiple answers and none of them are necessary right or wrong, however here are what I generally consider for my Neema triads.

Kameal paramedic/kumotail: If you take the spitfire Neema they are fine, however once you get into close range they are kind of squishy and being a frontline healer kinda put a bulls-eye on your head. Though for 14 points you can't argue about getting yourself a cheaper specialist that can heal.

Sakiel paramedic: only 6 points more then a kameal paramedic and 2 points less then a kumotail. Honestly I value the extra survivability more then the extra 10% chance of healing Neema and here is why. If they want to get Neema they have to either put extra orders into making sure Neema is dead or they have to kill the healer. If you position both Neema and the sakiel right you're opponent is gonna have to sink quite a lot of orders into it (which is not the case with the kumotail/kameal).

On the other hand you're sakiel got nimbus plus grenades which makauls love.

Kosuil: Great for when you need some anti-tag for up close and a specialist to boot, honestly the way I see it you put the sakiel in your close range triad if you expect to get trouble with a tag/heavy infantry on close range and the sakiel paramedic if not, assuming you have both in your list. If not then it's a personal choice, I personally love the order starvation the sakiel brings, but you may as well prefer the versatility the kosuil brings.

Another note; the kosuil is the only model with mines that can join a triad, you could place mines in zero smoke and lock you're opponents units down that way. Not something to sneeze at considering you're also have Neema and the kosuil to ARO, otherwise don't underestimate the nulifier.

Ectros/Sukeul HMG: Honestly I'm not a fan of putting a HMG into a Neema triad, for starters Neema is all about getting into close/mid-range which kind of defeats the point and eclipse smoke + a panzerfaust or 2 means Neema quite easily gets into someone's face.

Sukeul FO: Everything that applies to the Kosuil also applies to the Sukeul. The only thing I'm less pleased about is that he is slightly less useful for classifieds. Main selling point is his BS 13, Mimetism and Stealth combined with a Nullifier. Unlike the Kosuil a sukeul actually can sneak around together with Neema and a makaul without triggering any hacking ARO's. Place down a nullifier every time you plan on attacking inside a hacking zone or when it's the end of your turn and you're almost immune to hacking.

It is, but one extra Coordinated Orders to redeploy your troops (move-move) or get into Supression Fire is very order-efficient.
If you bring several non-linkable models in your list or need to constantly shuffle troopers between Combat Groups or Triads, the Skill is worth its cost.
