    I would like to propose my version of the one-two tag punch, now with 300 points because I usually play at this level:

    Lol, love you all. May we all explode into confetti for our shenanigans :'D Since this is a tactica thread, though, gonna rein it in a bit :P

    That definitely is a MIGHTY fine list. You've got all the bases covered, but at 400 points, you should probably abandon limited insertion. The avatar + overdron is a really strong combo that can take on AROs with and without MSV, but those are your only long-range guns in the list. The rest of your guns are SMGs and combi rifle rangeband. I'd see if I could switch the Q-drone to an HMG and throw in a caliban or noctifer spitfire. Those are just my 2 cents. The seed soldier is a curious but awesome pick, though. Never thought about it, but it works as a decent, budget specialist. Might throw him on the table and see how he does. Maybe he'll be in the tactica :D

    @DaRedOne that is a friggin' badass list, but personally I would go for the overdron if I was gonna go double TAGs, especially at 300 points. The raicho doesn't really add much that the avatar can't do better except for CLOSE RANGE!?!?!? capability. I'd trade it for an overdron and use the point savings to upgrade the taigha to something with a regular order.

    Like maybe this

    Yeah I definitely see where you're coming from on a lot of those points. Taking a plasma rifle Q-Drone instead of the HMG variant was actually a conscious decision, as I was worried about models clearing through my midline and challenging the TAGs up close - all I'd need to do in order to take the HMG is cut one of the slave drones which is probably a decent move on second thought.

    The seed soldier, I feel, is a great option if you want a cheap button pusher, especially in our current era of O-12 liasons and forward observer classified cards; It doesn't have the shooting power of the malignos, shrouded, or even zerat, but I'm a big believer in the "shoot the shit out of your enemy and then run specialists forward unopposed" strategy that many PanO players will advocate. Originally I was going to use an M-Drone, but they cost the same and the seed soldier has the advantage of starting upfield - if enemy camo markers prove to be too much of an issue I'll use the M-Drone instead.

    That's a good idea then. Just make sure the Q-drone doesn't get outranged. If it is, thankfully you have 2 TAGs to shoot the bejesus out of them.

    The thing is: as I've mentioned before, TAGs usually don't want to get close, and going dual TAG you don't have room for krakots, daturazi and nox, which would help you when some dipshit comes in waving a big honkin' knife at your warmachine. The Raizot solves that problem by applying liberal use of Heavy Shotgun to the face. Sure, berzerkers are still a problem, but at least with that shotty you can fight it out with say, a ninja or a fiday.

    This is actually startlingly close to a list I would actually run.... I'm tempted... >:D
