    Ok, its 17 orders + 3 irrgulars. Inspired by Project 28's abuse of multiple linked teams, I came out with this. I think it would preform really well in a lot of missions.

    But hey, two linked teams to switch between and 2 pathfinders for sensor spam. Theirs a lot of flexibility in this list, so if you want to drop a pathfinder for a Cobra Sensor, you can easily do that. You can even fit in an Echo Bravo if you think that could be useful.

    I've run something similar in Acontecimento, which I think does it very slightly better thanks using mines laid by regular models rather than helots in the defensive mix, and more versatile skirmishers. The major issue is that your opponent needs to remove only a small number single wound models before your army is left with linked rifles as your only line of attack. If your HMGs never lose a F2F roll though (or lose only a small number under controllable circumstances), you're on to a good thing.

    In the absence of any other feedback I'd suggest splitting helots across groups more evenly.

    As I said, the list is very flexible. If you want a sniper you can certainly fit it into the list.

    Or rather this for VIRD.

    SMR ZC to hunt and FO/KHD to score objectives.

    Added ML to the protocores for added punch and range band.

    EDIT: Added the LGL to group 2 so you can use it as your main hunting tool thus leaving the SMR ZC as a hunter piece in group 1.

    I agree with @RobertShepherd that I think Shock Army does this a bit better. Even without trying to memelist for high Orders, I'm routinely running 17 Reg + 2 Irreg in Shock Army.

    The big issue with this for VIRD is that our backline is a big squishy mess. No direct templates or mines means that a lot of game mechanics can crack into that backline and make a huge mess. That's one reason why Zulu Cobra Jammers are close to critical... They can deny area and inhibit the ability of AD units, Warbands, Impersonators to spend multiple Orders murdering your backline.
