    Pineapples are meant to be spiral cut and spit roasted, and basted with a brown sugar/water/rum mix. If you are eating pineapple any other way, you are doing it very, very wrong... well, missing out on something delicious at any rate.

    Khawarij with Mk12 and MSV2? You have my attention, CB.

    People use the non-AD Spector profile?
    I wouldn't mind if he were just wielding the sticks instead of a specific firearm, but I hope he is wearing some sort of AD backpack at least.

    The non-AD, FTO profile is great.

    They might eventually go all Joan of Arc/Musashi/Cherry McNeill/Achilles and do two separate models :P

    In Star Co, strictly for the role of "AD BSG flanker", a hell cat can do the job very efficiently for 21 pts vs 33 of Spector BSG. Not as effectively granted (it is a stacked profile), but sometimes you don't have 33 points to spend on an AD guy.

    Hellcat Advantages: Superior CJ to minimize risk from failed AD and costs 12 pts less.

    Those 12 points buy you.... +1 PH to reduce times you fail AD hopefully, +12 CC (and NBW), 4-4 move over 4-2, Mimetism, NWI,nanopulser, drop bears, and EM2 CCW. That a ton for 12 points, but is definitely not a guarantee role-filler for the job of AD-BSG guy for all lists

    good point. and drop bear itself can be really awesome in a AD job.

    I prefer the FTO version (even though it is non-AD). in starco it can join a very specific Brawler+CSU+Raoul link, but I play tunguska where it can count as securitate or grenzer. meaning full link, and one of my only two CC specialist option.

    Ooooh yea, I forgot about that tunguska link team.. that is begging for the FTO profile for sure.

    Also has the option with Persues and a stemplar zond, ever tried that one?

    only tried it once in a "triple haris" list, the puppetbot not-a-haris fireteam did most of the work. and the grenzer 3-men core and this special haris both did some work toward the mission success.

    I think the reason they can't/wont do a "melee Weapons double profile" model for Raoul is that one will have a Jetpack and the other probably wouldn't, so I think we will need to see 2 models for him.

    Also, yeah the Spector/Persues/Zond is GREAT for looting and sabotage. They are resilient, Perseus is good for breaking the AC2, and they can use smoke/white noise through the repeater to run forwards through most ARO's.

    I am getting mixed signals. It looks thin like a female leg, but no combat heel . . .

    It won't have fatality. It is a perfectly safe way to prepare pineapple.

    Oh, the Khawarij. Doubtful. It may make the unit worth taking, rather than just interesting. CB would never knowingly do that, make the Khawarij worth taking.

    If you are basting pineapple with rum, you may as well be using gasoline.

    Rum and Brown sugar + water. You use a drip pan to catch the run-off and re-baste the pineapple. It carmelizes nicely, and the flammable alcohol evaporates quickly enough. It's just like cooking with wine or what-not. Some people add cinnamon too. Cinnamon doesn't readily survive high temperatures, so it's a waste unless you sprinkle the cinnamon on it after cooking.

    Maybe I should have said rotisserie rather than spit-roast... But it's the same thing. Impale the pineapple and set it slowly rotating over heat in an enclosed space. Just don't do it on a charcoal grill. The pineapple acquires some unpleasant ashy taste if you do.

    Doesn't matter what you ADD to it, Rum still tastes no better than gasoline. Strips paint about as well, too. :p

    You SIr should talk to your local Booze Dealer about the quality of your purchases... And get yourself a Bottle of Don Papa.

    And yeah, I am hoping for stick swinging Raoul as well. Cant wait to see the mini in its hyperdynamic glory!

    Point for point, stat for stat, they are significantly better than Zhanying who costs near enough the identical amount - and that's comparing the non-FAT2 profiles. You never know what might happen to them in their sectorial to make them worthwhile, since Zhanying are supposedly a good unit in ISS (I'm personally less convinced when it comes to the non-Sensor profiles, but luckily I'm not the authority on what's good and what's not)
