    I thought recently about MO limited insertion lists containing Seraph and TO/AD troops. I want to have both TAG and some SWC weapon link as well, so I will have enough firepower and redundancy in case my TAG goes down (happens to me way too often).

    I can fit magister/hospitaller link there, but at the expense of some utility stuff useful in TAG lists - hacker and repeaters / engineer with palbots. If I were to drop 2 magisters from link, I can add engineer and hacker in their place and maybe some more stuff.

    Opinions, anyone?

    You know you can still fit full Hospitaller link + Seraph + TO MSR + Machinist ?

    I'm aware of that. Still, I would like to have also hacker for possible un-possession / fairy dust and maybe additional TOFOOS :)

    Then drop DA Magister and AP Magister.

    But imho (again only imho) you are losing A LOT of punch (HMG is losing +3 BS) during active turn, and losing a lot of ARO during reactive (as you only have 1 magister who is losing +3 BS and SS2 making him an easy target).

    Also whole point of Hosptillaer link is to use Magister as ablative shield for Doc+HMG, untill the moment you are mid-field and release hounds (Magisters) and hopefully your opponent still focus on Hospitallers (allowing Magisters to do their job).

    I reached similiar conclusion, tough assumed that maybe B5 BS14 HMG would be enough for some applications. I still have TO MSR and TAG with Fatality 1 Spitfire to deal with threats it may not be sufficient enough for. Altough, like you've said, there is not much here in ARO department now list-wise.

    Use command tokens to deal with possesion.

    Your link has stealth so it shouldnt worry about most hacking attacks until you engage on your terms

    You lose a tremendous amount by downgrading the core link to basically a poormans haris.

    I actually made the following list by dropping enough to fit a 5-linked Missile Launcher ARO piece:

    I don't feel like losing a sniper is that bad. I like the cheaper FO with mines, and it's a specialist, 6pts cheaper. I lost two Palbots though.

    @BarbeChenue Looking good, I actually worked out something similiar, tough with double fusilier to discourage opponent from trying to LoL me in first turn:
