    And more importantly, can it be good?

    You obviouslly can AVA: TOTAL yourself a horde of Aux bots in NCA, but then you are stuck with a bunch of goofy bs11 combi guys, all of which are in your deployment. And no one wants to paint that many Auxilia.

    So, using everything that Vanilla PanO has to offer, can we make a half decent stab at this list?

    We aren't limited to only Aux Bot profiles because we can't really fill a list properly, but if we can get 5+ that would be awesome.

    That's my 5 minute attempt, can it be done better? Thoughts?

    I guess it's okay to take sectorial suggestions for auxbot spam, so long as it builds some sort of cogent list.

    You magnificent bastard.

    So, interestingly no regular HD for assisted fire or EVO for the B2 flamers?

    4 Palbots? :O What's your thinking here?

    I think why i'm concerned about in this excercise is how to mitigate the lack of coordinated order potential. If it was possible to get 2 orders then I could imagine a guarda de assaulto in both, which could be really nice. Peace makers partially get around the loss of good coordinating by already being in the midfield, but i'm always wary of taking them without an EVO. Is it not as a bad as all that?

    Double guarda in one combat group worries me, I presume you put one on each flank and leave the multi rifle one for ARO duty on turn one, and spitfire away?

    I've never seen those aleph profiles before, do they both have 2 deva bots each? You what?!

    All good points. I naturally reach for KHD Scylla since she can cybermask her and her bots. It also comes with Maestro as a bonus. If I use Guardas I use two and I'll run them up opposite sides. I really wish they'd give them 6-2 or hyper dynamics and kinematica to help them stand out. I dumped four palbots in just cause you can in SAA. You could easily drop one and change the FO Regular to another Machinist or a trauma Doc. Both the Aleph profiles are extremely good. Scylla because of the forementioned cybermask and Drakios is a good first turn assault piece due to albedo which his bots get as well. Regarding command token use, there's a lot of bots you'll be taking risks with and those four palbots need something to do.

    I had a version of this for ALEPH when Limited Insertion first became a thing.

    People would look at their own unit number and then just feel sad about the number of minis they were facing.
