Bakunin Limited Insertion

4 posts in this topic

I've decided I want to try some limited insertion lists with Bakunin, but it's tough to make something that can't be done better in vanilla. I feel like the #1 take for LI bakunin is Avicenna, who usually doesn't show up in my lists... normally the best doctor in the game is overkill, but here it feels right. What are all of you taking for Limited Insertion?

Why the Sin-Eaters? You get a well (even better?) performing two shot ML on a much more resilient platform with a linked Riot Grrl, also get a fifth one and you're good :)

In general I'm not fond of paying 30 points or more if that troop is not shock immune.

I recently played a single group list of Riot Grrl haris and a trio of Moira core. With avicenna, custodier, prowler and morlock (for the smoke). and it was nice :) 

A much older list, don't quite remember how the game went, was similar to Tristan : full Riot link, avicenna, custodier, zero, and TR. except I had a Sin instead of Prowler.

OK, I have played three games with the list I posted above. Trip report:

  • Riot Grrls are performing. I know the missile launcher is great but spitfire/bsg is a nice force-projecting combo. In two games I had to deal with TAGs and advancing with the spitfire and engaging with the shotgun at close range worked well. Leaving as-is
  • Custodier is good enough as the LT. I'm leery of taking a moderator with so few models on the board.
  • Sin-eaters are underperforming. I stopped taking sin-eaters because people were getting better about countering them... after even a 6 month hiatus of no sin-eaters, my meta was immediately ready for their return. Dropping one (prob. HMG) or both
  • Zero KHD is working fine, but the forward observer doesn't need to observe much in season 9. Gonna switch it to dep rep to help KHD/LT
  • Monkey man sucks, I keep failing superior infiltration and I don't have enough orders to use him even when I am in position. He needs a moderator link team to power him.
  • Avicenna rules in limited insertion and she brings it home every game. Very good pick
