    I know that Druze are pretty much fine as is, but I thought a wee wishlist thread might be fun! Even though changes are unlikely! I personally would like to see a panzerfaust Druze LT and the doctor engineer brawler reduced to 18 points a piece! Also maybe a reduction of SWC for the Druze haris and maybe a cheaper option for Le Meut! :-)

    I wish for a few more troops for more variety but that’s about it.

    Druze or Brawler HI would be nice

    I agree about HI. I’d like the Al Faseed He’s already in Ikari and Dahshat, why not Druze? Maybe Janissaries and/or Azra’il? They are in QK so not much of a leap of story to have in Druze. But then, it would make them too QK.

    Some cross over from Spiral would be cool too.

    One or two Hulang Shocktroopers! Not the best troop, but its a characterful choice and will be a fun companion for Saito.

    And a Rudra!

    EDIT: and I second Kratoks from the other thread!

    Some more flavour would be good, a smattering more troop choices would really help, a good solo piece would be most welcome

    for balance
    • More Lt options.
    • Better hackers. That many repeaters becomes a weakness with so few decent hackers. the ones you have are easy targets.With Fireteam options and reduced profiles you almost have to take them.
      • Alternatively make an extra skill to be able to make the HD go 'offline' from friendly repeaters. You need to place token to show status. ZoC would still be hackable. This should be a free option at the beginning\end of move like going prone.
    • More than 19 profiles. A sectoral should have around 25 for multiple play options.
    Fluff while I can see why DBS should have reduces AD. They are a security force and more defensive. So add in some good minelayers. Preferably with specialists. Make it DBS 'thing' they get. Right now no faction gets infiltrating specialists minelayers. Adding Minelayer to a Hunzakuts FO profile would be worth 21-22 points (currently 18). Makes for a good outer perimeter.

    I personally would love to see the link with Pan-O further explored.

    I would like to see some of the more "Big Company" units make an appearance, like an AVA 1/2 Orc, or CSU's, and work them into link teams in interesting or unexpected ways.

    Maybe a set of Orc Troops (Druze Division) with Fat 1, that count as Brawlers, to avoid further replacing the Druze side of the link team.

    After all, the chief is just running a legitimate business here. ;)

    I really like the idea of getting a bit more from their strong political relationships with Haqq and Pano, especially a linkable merc Orc. The other thing they could get is better TAG support; I understand why Scarface is their guy, but why an Anaconda as the other TAG option when it fits into the same niche as the suicide siblings, and the Druze don't have a relationship with the Nomads that has been explicitly stated?

    Id love to have more generic mercs, expecially the CSU, liberto and monstertruker.

    From a functional point of view access to a few more of the general metcs, particularly krakot and libertos would really add to druze list options.

    More wish lists, I'd love an orc-like heavy.
    More flexible link options.
    Perimeter defense weapons, maybe a FD minelayer druze profile.

    Real wish listing- some changes to medium infantry to make it less of a liability.

    Druze is very interesting army(and one of the reason its difficulty) and I really like to play them(more then aleph, which is my first army).

    But its need a bit more flexibility and options. This can be done even without adding new units, for example:

    1)Just give them(druze) mimetism(to all profiles, not only sniper)
    or mov 4-4 (like briscards or yadu)
    or mechanized deployment
    or nwi\dogged
    or hyper-dynamics l1
    or tactical awareness
    even bioimmunity will help them.

    They must be real backbone of this army..., after all it is "DRUZE Bayram Security", not "Brawlers and Peacemaker Security"

    1.1) Arslan needs strategos lvl 1-2, shock immunity, wildcard(why does Gromoz know fireteam compositions of DBS better than their chief?!).

    2)Huznakuts\bashi bazooks could be regular in DBS.

    But sure, some new troops profiles will be better, likewise COC, camo\odd options))
    ALso I think that dbs lack of heavy infantry is OK and adds the charm to this army

    Druze are still an underappreciated army IMO, they don't really have too many bad faction matchups but exclusion zones are kinda rough on them. They also excel at some scenarios that other factions struggle with.

    For what it's worth, I played them heavily in season 9, but haven't played them much in season 10.

    Considering only the cool factor, I'll stick to my guns and think just a Krakot and Al Fasid inclusion rounds them out nicely. Carmen and Batard could be a fun wish list too. None of these will probably happen tho, DBS avoids impetuous and HI.

    From a profile standpoint; I'd like to see a faction only Druze HMG or Sniper get Tactical Awareness.

    I've always thought Advanced Command on Arslan would be great.

    I'm hoping for the same additions but I agree it is unlikely.

    I want the unit types have the rules baked in to them instead of referencing a load of other stuff, because they don't serve a lot of point on the profiles at the moment; LI, MI, SK and WB might as well be flavour text

    I would LOVE advanced command with Arslan! I always seem to burn through my conman tokens! And tactical awareness on the Druze sniper would be cool Jfunkd! There are a lot of cool ideas in this thread! Druze do work well as they are, I have had alot do fun with them the last while, but seeing as they were the original faction to experiment with mixed links being viable, maybe they could do with a few updates! I'd like Armand to have minelayer and msv1 too, seems weird to make him choose!

    I'd quite like them to switch remote suppliers to Haqq, but keep the current AVA...

    I don't mean to turn this into a homebrew thread, but I'd love the idea of some kind of alternate Druze, something that would fit into the main link, not necessarily HI, but a NWI shock immune MI, chain rifles, assault pistols, boarding shotguns, grenades, flash grenades, maybe smoke grenades and not heavy armour but a nanoscreen... Basically I am just taken with the image of Druze with riot shields kicking doors in...

    Man a link-able orc trooper in druze colors sounds sexy af. I'd like some type of heavy infantry just so we can have some crit protection. Also Arslan just needs a little bit more to make me want to take him. Hes close but just doesnt seem worth the points yet. Hes always my go to thing to cut in a list.
