Hi, I'm trying to make FC+SoF work, but I never have enough points to really push the enveloppe and retain enough "punching power". I'd rather field something with a punch than just a double Zeros, double Warcors, Fugazi, Probot, CSU+Securitate Core link on the cheap... but I feel forced into it. I feel like I should just play Vanilla ALEPH and avoid this sectorial entirely for the tournament scene, exactly like I've been doing with my Military Orders, and the "Samurai" part of JSA (fun, casual lists, can win some scenarios, but why risk it?). FC feels like a pre-Wildcard army, and has disappointingly few real Fireteam options. There seems to be many on the surface, but they are all so strict, that once you lose a single model, it's almost impossible to reform the link. But enough with the rant... Before I give up on trying to play the Soldiers of Fortune, here's a list I'd like to try: Kriza +SoF BoltCore +AviKapHaris +Redundancy ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 10 KRIZA BORAC Lieutenant HMG / Heavy Pistol, CC Weapon. (2 | 54) BOLT (Multispectral Visor L1) MULTI Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 27) BOLT Boarding Shotgun, Drop Bears / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 18) BOLT Spitfire / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 23) VALKYRIE Heavy Shotgun, Grenades / Heavy Pistol, EXP CC Weapon. (0 | 35) SEÑOR MASSACRE Boarding Shotgun, E/M Grenades, Eclipse Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW, E/M CCW. (0 | 26) HANNIBAL (Chain of Command, Strategic Deployment) Boarding Shotgun, Nanopulser / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 37) KAPLAN Spitfire / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 28) KAPLAN (Fireteam: Haris) Combi Rifle, Adhesive Launcher, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 24) AVICENNA Combi Rifle, Flash Pulse / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 27) 6 SWC | 299 Points Open in Infinity Army It has enough Bolts to reform the link if you lose a few (thanks to how "Up to 1 or 2 Bolts" is worded), and you can keep the Multisniper standing, and it's not that bad if you lose it, you still got two more Bolts to keep the Core alive (and Avicenna can Doctor Plus). You can keep the Hannibal +Valkyrie +Señor Massacre "Core" going if you lose all the Bolts. Despite having only 11 orders, and being LI, the list starts with an amazing turn one. Half the models start basically 8 inches ahead on board, the equivalent of at least 1-2 orders in Sectorial armies (or 1-2 extra Command Tokens in Vanilla armies). The Kriza Borac is safely behind the bulk of the force, backed by Hannibal CoC. The Kaplan/Avicenna Haris is just behind the Fireteam Core, 4 inches beyond the 12" line, and has a B5 Mimetism Spitfire game going. It's also a list that you don't necessarily want to engage in melee too much. There a ton of shotguns, pretty much everywhere in the Core link. There's a bit of Eclipse Smoke (in a Core link at potentially PH 19) to help set up CC kills. Valkyrie can engage 8 inches away with Assault at -3 (CC 18), cancelling the enemy's MA, and threatening EXP dmg. Señor Massacre can take care of a TAG or enemy HI. Sure it doesn't have 13+ orders, no Zeros, no Übercommandos, no Crocman, etc. but it's resilient (in theory). What do you guys think?
