    Good day, people of Human Sphere.
    Not long time ago I arrived to Novy Bangkok to hire team, that don’t fear to get their hands dirty...
    -
    (Because my friend talked too much, that Druze are trash, and I am really motivated to show him,
    that if they are not the best, but at least you should not relax with them..)
    -
    I already hired 4 Druze enforcers, 4 Brawlers and one girl named Valeria to my team.
    Who else? I really need your advices.
    What is to buy first, what is for later.
    The most critical elements are worried me.
    I understand, it would be not easy...

    Saito, Hunzakuts, Peacemakers, Fiddler, and Yuan yuan would be priority. The Peacemakers are extremly prsctical for projecting repeater coverage in the midfield and are a great piece to trade with. Hunzakuts are almost an autoinclude for the mines, the forward deploy and the deployable repeaters.
    scarface or am Anaconda as Triphammer, Bounty Hunter, a HI trooper to use as Digger ( I used a mobile brigada Multirifle as basis for a conversion, wu Ming would work great too), Wolfgang and bashi bazouk are nice too.

    I second everything Fed4ykin said, but i'll also say that Fiddler and Wildcard Bounty Hunters are a great addition to a fledgling merc team. I've had great success with Peacemakers and Bashi Bazouks. In my lists (and this is just me) i prefer the Anaconda over the Triphammer.

    You can get some good second hand mining TAGs for cheap and retrofit them. I heard some Diggers are bored and looking for work as well.

    I would second getting saito, a yuan yuan .
    REMS can be really useful, a box of Pano REMS is worth picking up. If you find a box of aragoto going cheap they make excellent motorised bounty hunters which are cheap, fast and deadly

    Hunzakuts. These guys make scoring and defending your midfield a whole lot easier.

    Peacemaker. Pretty much every list. Great passive speed bump, forward hacking area, throw away alpha strike, and I just recently counter deployed a Speculo in my Deployment zone with one. The Heavy Shotgun is nearly an auto include for me.

    Diggers (something to proxy as them since there aren't any models yet). These guys are tough, cheap, defend your DZ well, refill your fireteams with great bonuses and sometimes Booty will make them unbelievable deals at 14 points.

    Saito Togan. This guy is really fragile, but capable of winning games all on his own with infiltration, smoke, TO camo, Hidden Deployment, and specialist operative. He's also a payload to kill something hard, though he often dies in the process.

    Pathfinders. Especially this ITS season with the Tachimoto rule, these guys are great for the points.

    Fugazis. Cheap, fast, regular orders, flash pulses, and repeater coverage.

    Yuan Yuan. Smoke is important. You can start these guys in your Deployment Zone and get a lot of value, they don't need to combat jump or parachute.

    If you want to run Scarface (or other TAGs) get the Kameel EVO to help protect from hackers with Fairy Dust. You don't need Scarface with Druze, but Druze are vulnerable to having a whole battle plan fail with one bad FtF roll in the active turn. Scarface lets you be aggressive without such a harsh penalty for one failure.

    Eventually you're going to want a Clipper. X-visor tossed pitchers followed up by Spotlight and the Druze LGL or the Clipper's Guided Missile is a strength of the Druze.

    Arslan is a notable mention as a good pick up.

    Edit: Clipper, not Cutter.

    I really appreciate all your advices. Thank you!

    I wonder, could I get hakims to proxy hunzakuts?
    I may want to get a couple of them in the list, but I don’t want similar models...
    Plus little helpers in that box would be good for my engineers.

    If you carefully cut the LFT off the Chasseur Rifle/LFT miniature, you get a perfekt Hunzakut proxy

    Today I’ve hired TAG pilot.
    Machine isn’t new, but pilot looks tough and experienced.
    Anaconda was that model? Anyway it is something hard armored.
    Lovely.

    Also I am discussing contract with one ex-Aristeia star.
    People said, she is experienced in tech and traps.

    Going to buy some rems of course.

    (Ok, now serious. I am trying to follow “first-of-all list”, but this things I want to get because they are available. Here and now. I am worried about international shipping this days. But anyway.
    So, I bought Anaconda, ordered Fiddler (shop is going to check, if it is available) and some rems later when I would sell some of my other miniatures... yuan-yuan of course in plan. I wonder, what could be proxy for a peacemaker... but of course I want original.)
