Afternoon all, I rather like the look of the Ikari Company list and at some point would like to use it as a template to run something a little different (at least visually); a *not Ikari Company* Ikari Company. My idea is largely inspired by Cerberus within the Mass Effect universe and would comprise a mercenary company that has been partly or wholly corrupted by the Combined Army and is now at the command of the EI; an asset to be used to further it's goals within the Human Sphere without attracting the attention that deploying its own (alien) troops would bring. I'm looking to Cerberus for some inspiration both thematically and aesthetically, though it would be by no means a recreation of Cerberus within the Infinity universe. However the intimidating visual aspect is certainly one element I would like to utilise and it's a great excuse to use some models that I love (from various factions), but would otherwise never get a chance to use. I'd go for a much more advanced, cohesive and professional look than the base Ikari Company and would appreciate thoughts on my proxy choices: Keisotsu = Securitate. Clean cut, professional, neutral. Brawlers = Kamau (or possibly Bagh Mari). Love the slanted visors and general style. Suitably intimidating in dark colours. Similar stats and weapons. Druze = Druze. Bashi = Uncertain. Love Akalis, I'm not sure that their style is fitting with the irregular Bashi. May choose the standard Bashi and they'll represent a contracted, expendable merc. Karakuri = Hollow Men. Robotic heavy infantry, but without the anachronistic aspect. Very intimidating. Wu Ming = Wu Ming. Perfect. Tanko = Shikami. I like the Tanko, but their highly anachronistic Japanese armour style isn't what I'm looking for. The Shikami are just superb and remain similar to the Tanko whilst being less heavily ornamented. Anyone know of a loose missile launcher? Al Fasid = Azra'il. Very similar in every aspect, but I just prefer the Azra'il. One of my favourite Infinity sculpts. Daiyokai = Daiyokai. The company leader. A head swap and the removal of those banners will hopefully leave him appearing more subtly inspired by historical Japanese armour, ala Darth Vader. Ninja = Red Veil Ninja if I can get her or Oniwaban if not, or possibly Igao. No explanation necessary. Desperadoes = Kum bikers/enforcers. No really good option aesthetically, but much prefer these to Desperados. May just be seen as expendable outside mercs. Other suggestions very welcome. Yuan Yuan = Die Morlock Gruppe. Crazy, villainous and suitably armed. Not drop troops, but does it really matter by the time they're on the table? Very happy to imagine them being dropped in by transports/deployed in drop pods/landing on buildings & shimmying down etc. As above, probably expendable outside mercs. Toketsu = Toketsu or Yu Jing support pack or any number of other good options. Cube Jager = Igao or Gao Rael. Can't choose between these two. ABH = So many good choices - Lasiq, Ayyar, Intruder sniper etc Krakot = converted Krakot, Daturazi or Raicho pilot. Outside merc Yojimbo = Yojimbo. No choice here, the sculpt's just too good and utterly unique IMO. Again, outside merc. Having said there's no choice I've just remembered and have always been fond of Penthisilea.... Scarface = Scarface or Anaconda. Anaconda is, visually, one of my favourite TAGs, but I already have Scarface... Remotes = Variety. EVO repeater will be CA E-drone (supposedly captured and repurposed) to facilitate communication... Warcor = Civilian or CSU. Libertos = Libertos or regular Helot (whenever they're released). Thanks guys.
