Odalisques are a tough LI (they were said to be "semi-HI" by some, until N3 came and Shock Ammo became rather popular). While not great in CC, they are an unit no-one wants to mess up with up close (thanks to iKohl L3). Depending on profile, they're good for short to extended mid-range gunfights, and I do especially like them for close-in, room-cleaning operations.

They have a choice of either 6th Sense L2, or 360-Visor skills. 

Now, in QK they can form Core Fireteam (which is nice, but not anything stellar IMO), or very nice, offensive Haris Fireteam. Their main drawback is lack of Specialists, but this is in turn easily remedied by adding a Hafza FO. If you need a long-ranged weapon, Hafza HRL is also an option (though remeber that in a Haris, only 1 Hafza is permitted; you can however take 2 Hafzas in an Odalisque Core).

Odalisques are the only fireteam option I don't have for Haqq. I know some people love them, I just prefer to have a fireteam with specialists. I know about the hafza FO option, but never really seamed that great.  Even in N2 I preferred Azrails with hafza for a strong punch with cheap in bodycount. In N3 I find Djanbzans a better QK Core. Admittedly I prefer playing HB over QK. I usually only play QK when I feel like something tougher, or playing against a player who likes Camo and ODD. 

Odalisques & Druze were the last 2 fireteams I was missing. I just got the druze because of the new sectoral.

Well, personally I was never too keen on Druze. Kinda neither fish nor fowl, though of course it might start looking a mite different if the new profiles turn up in the QK.

Odalisques did fine for me back in 2ed. In N3... they are still OK, just I don't play all that often.

Odalisques are pure awesomeness.

The Haris option is the big winner. (Actually they were the original Haris to begin with.)

You can rock a wide range of firearms, Spitfire and Submachine Guns being pure evil.

If You need a specialist, You can take a Hafza. (Or frighten Your opponent with a hidden HRL...)

In case you havent already recognized it, they are already in QK for two days. So, happy holidays with them;)

Yup, noticed it already.

But as for now I don't know whether the lack of Fireteam: Core in their listing is the new state of QK Fireteams, or just a mistake.

They're still listed in the wiki List of Fireteams and it's been confirmed that they are still core, so you are good to go.
