    So, I bought O.Coldfront and decided to give priority to this interesting sectorial army, on 28 October I'll have a tournament and maybe I'll bring TAK, yesterday I played my first two matches againts NCA using these two lists, the first for hunting party and the second for firefight :

    I've already made some changes despite the two victories 'cause this army is totally new for me, I never played Ariadna and some units don't convince me, Vassily is good enough but I'm curious about other characters and maybe the t2 marksman version could be better, I was disappointed by BS Spetsnaz while the HMG one is excellent. Kazak link is good and I like the possibility of putting a vet. Kazak, they're a defensive link but I believe they're a great choice.
    About other Camo units, Strelok are versatile and very cheap, I've to try other versions but I'm quite satisfied, Scouts on the other hand, are more expensive but did a good job.
    The missions for the tournament will be :
    - Firefight
    - Capture & Protect
    - The Armory

    Or Vet Kazak with AP HMG?
    Or Pavel's T2 CCW?
    Or the various linkable units with Molotoks?

    I've tested LI lists and managed to win an LI tournament with TAK. Missions were special, 1 Dire Foe, 1 Fat Yan Yan and 1 Haloween one.... Vet Kazak AP HMG is a MUST. Your most powerfull offensive piece in a link. Scout is OK, but not great. Strelok is good, K9 version. Ratnik with dual Molotok is good. Can do some ARO and attack as well. My problem with TAK is lack of ARO pieces

    Tankhunter w/ autocannon is your ARO piece. Vassily T2 sniper is pretty good as well.

    There looks like a lot of great options to me.

    Besides the Tankhunter AC, the tankhunter MC is also nice. Scout Ojotniks are cool no SWC options.

    I kind of like the look of Line Kazak Sniper tower as well. They are not grunts, but the price is low and you can combine them with a AP sniper MSV1 Front. 2 Snipers, 2 Rifles, and 1 AP Front comes in at 81 points and 2 SWC which is basically the same price as the 4 grunt 1 rifle team. The Front also gets B2, MSV1, +4 BS, an AP Sniper, and mimetism which makes up for the lose of one Sniper. That is a solid trade off to me.

    So guys, I want to resume my old thread 'cause in the last weeks I played two matches with TAK after a long time, was October when I first tested this peculiar but amazing army.
    Now I'll have a tournament very soon and I hope my TAK force will be ready to fight, wainting other new miniatures xD.
    The missions will be Supremacy, Acquisition and Engineering Deck.
    I played two matches, one vs Starco and one vs ALEPH, both tests were quite good, I used this list :

    Proxy. Scout BS works well in this particular case

    Precisely, Scout with BS and or Spets with BS :ok_hand:.
    The main problem with TAK are Camo tokens xD.

    I'm taking the Scout with BS from the starter.
    But you don't have to have the exact loadout of the miniature at all.
    Rules wise you can proxy with every infinity miniature

    Why? I might even prefer Vanilla over TAK for LI thanks to Le Muet and how having 5 out of 10 Dudes being stuck in a link limiting my flexibility too much in terms of deployment and where to strike.

    For general lists on the other hand, TAK plays a bit different from Vanilla, but feels equally strong to me. CBs choice to include tye Streloks and Frontoviks even though both were not completely needed in the first place puts TAK in a very comfortable place.

    Vanilla Ariadna has the most options and most different playstyles. TAC sectorial gives us some great AVA options that really shine, and yes one of them is the vet core team. Really hard to beat but really expensive too. Others are the spets, tankhunters and scouts. Due to their cost my strategy leads me to LI lists so that i can be protected by the - 2 orders if i go first. Im not saying that someone cannot play with lots of orders in TAK, just stating that LI lists are way more effective
