    If I use a croc minelayer as my reserve piece and am deploying into TO - what do I have to declare (e.g. do I just drop the camo token (thereby pretending to be just another helot/zulu - or do I say, reserving a model and this camo token, etc).

    Cheers

    You would say you're deploying your reserve model (as per normal). You would then note the position of the croc-man in hidden deployment and place the camo token on the table. You don't need to tell your opponent that you're doing anything special, although they may be tipped off due to the fact that PanO has no infiltrators with basic camo.

    By the way, noting the position of the croc man is not something you have to do in an obvious way

    I love to snap a picture and put a cross on it to mark my to location while making it looking like I'm checking comlog on my phone

    PS : pano have forward deployement camo, if you place the mine well your opponent can think it's a zulu cobra

    Frequent Pan O opponent here and serious hater of Jammers: That camo marker will be taken seriously as a Jammer, and will create an 8" deterrence bubble around it. That and/or your opponent will divert their Veteran L1+ units there to deal with it, only to discover it's just a stupid mine.

    It will probably be more effective if you have fielded and used Jammers against that opponent recently.

    So yeah, that's going to be a useful tactic, if you don't mind hanging your Croc Man back a bit.
