    I'm preparing a limited insertion tournament in CA with the following mission : Firefight/Frontline/Supremacy/Acquisition/Supplies. So no need for a lot of subtility and need for a lot of firepower


    The other list will be either Avatar or Sphinx based


    Overdron limited
    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────

    [​IMG]10 [​IMG]1
    OVERDRON Hyper-Rapid Magnetic Cannon / . (2 | 78)

    IKADRON (Baggage, Repeater) 2 Light Flamethrowers, Flash Pulse / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 9)
    R-DRONE Flash Pulse, Sniffer / Electric Pulse. (0 | 8)

    5.5 SWC | 300 Points

    Open in Infinity Army

    Q-Drone/Noctifer bring some defensive firepower when I play second.

    Overdron can take down long range ARO, Sheskin can rambo once the path is clear. Either of them can be Datatracker depending of the mission/table configuration.

    Caliban and shrouded can take care of objectives in supplies/acquisition/Supremacy.

    Caliban and Krakot can provide mid-field firepower if necessary

    My only regret is not fielding a HD/HD+ to boost the Q-Drone but I cannot find a way to put it in.

    So, any advice regarding the list or the mistake not to do while playing it ?

    I would say downgrade that Overdron to a Sogarat and you have your space to drop in a hacker. Something like this:

    thanks for the feedback @DaRedOne

    I have been thinking of your proposal of replacing the TAG by a Sogarat to free enough point to get a hacker

    Are you sure it's worth it ? The sogarat make me loose 1 W, 1 unconscious level, 1 order, some armor and Albedo. I'm not sure it's worth it.

    You do lose 1 order, 1 wound and albedo, but you do not lose armor. Sogarat is Armor 6, like the Overdron. The extra unconscious level isn't that big of a deal if you drop back into full cover when you get unconscious. And thanks to automedikit you don't need a slave drone babysitting your roadblock.

    Realistically, the Feuerbach is way more dangerous than the HRMC, even with fatality added in. Not only it has a stronger ARO presence out of supressive fire, but it also deals more wounds per hit, so even if you're fighting a hard target, the feuerbach will have an easier time killing it. Besides, Full Auto gives you a bonus that's almost as good as Albedo vs MSV, and better than it against anything else, so I would say it all evens out, really.

    Ok, you make a good case for the Sogarat, but I love having albedo. Let's see. If I push think a bit I can put Victor Messer on the list. He looks like a good toolbox and HD+ allow me to white noise to take down MSV aro unit

    The only problem is : it force me to remove my slave drone. Not sure I like it :

    If you're dead-set on vanilla CA I would say this is a strong case for an avatar list.

    I took a variant on this list to a satellite last year (and mono listed it) and various other event. Every game the sight of my opponents fearful eyes I put down the raicho as a reserve made my heart sing.

    In supplies it has fast specialists in the others it has multiple TAGs and great hackers

    wow this double TAG list is rad! I would drop the med tech for a Kurgat so you get a true 10th order as a Ikadron instead of the random imetron
