    So FC looks to have lots of very specific link compositions which I'm struggling to process and make a list.

    So far Laxmee and kaplans Haris seems like a godg option for a midfield killer/specialist combo.

    Not sure what to do with the rest of the team. What are your thoughts?

    Looks like I'll be taking the Securitate/CSU core pretty much every game. I'm a little disappoint none of these AVA4 profiles got some type of special core without taking 3 characters.

    The bolt haris and the Kaplan haris look pretty decent, since I'll probably be taking Laxmee anyway

    It's so annoying, especially looking over at Dashat where you basically just can do what you like too.

    My only Only idea is to do a SoF with 2 Bolts and a Laxmee Haris with two Kaplan, but it seems rather underwhelming.
    It's also feels weird for Hannibal to have a Marksmen rifle and then give his crew Forward Deployment. Guess it doesn't matter if you take the Shotgun, but you can't do the Lt. then.

    I agree, I was really hoping for a great Valkyrie delivery system. Her and massacre in a Haris or something, looks like you'd have to drag a 5 man core around.

    I don't mind all that much really. I think Haris is a good spot for the characters, Valk I want running around on her own anyway, that's not a huge deal. I just would have liked to have more defensive ARO options, something where Kaplans can mix with Securitates or CSU

    I played around a bit and keep ending up on this. Securitate core with CSU for specialists/flank guards plus a Hannibal Harris. Strategic deployment gives the whole link FD2 so you get to start a spitfire bolt and Massacre up the table. I'm feeling the same vibe as Starco where it looked great on the surface... but I kept running into the same combinations.

    For a second list, I would probably want to fit in a crocman (because they're cool!) but I don't know how much value it would provide as this list already has significant mid-board presence.

    I have a tournament coming up in the middle of April and I plan on playing Foreign company in it. There's two missions that have objective rooms so this is kind of built around that. Valk seems invaluable in enclosed spaces....

    I like FC because of the SoF characters, so I don't mind having to take them in a core.

    Although as the group runs expensive, i might go for a 3-men core and haris.
    (the SoF core w/ ORC HMG pointmen is 176 Pts, although a bolt Spitfire pointmen could do the work for 21 pts saved)

    It is interesting that all the special cores rely on including Valkyrie.

    I might run bolts with hannibal haris, which gives them FD L1, or improves it to FD L2 when applying a tournament rule giving them FD L1. Bolt haris is good. Then a Val + Avi + Orc core or a securitate (inc. CSU).

    Another double haris option is Hannibal + Val + Massacre core and 2 KTS+Laxmee haris, uses all SoF characters.

    At the moment this is my favourite list i come up with in FC.
    It is LI though and has probably many other problems i don't see at the moment. xD

    @Ben Kenobi Replace the 3 securitate w/ combi with 3 CSU 12 specialists (They count as securitates).

    Ironic that foreign company seems to work better without the soldiers of failure link options.

    Yeah it's quite a shame!

    I am curious to give this a try, but somehow it doesn't really feel that exciting:

    It would have been cool if the SoF had more flexible link options (Valkyrie duo with Massacre!) but i like them anyway and will probably play them regardless.
    This is a list with quite flexible link options:

    Hannibal, Valkyrie and Massacre can form a fireteam with two Bolts. And Laxmee has her Kaplan Haris.
    If one or more of the characters die, the Bolts can reform a Haris.
    This list is very light on specialists though and i don't particularly like the MSR Croc because Infiltration and X-Visior are more or less wasted.

    I also have list without the bulk of SoF:

    Yes. FC and the SoF are rather disappointing and uninspired. Dashat isn't very original, but at least it's a nice surprise, where you have freedom to mix and match to serve your style. I really don't get that from FC yet. That's why...

    Hmm...not feeling it for now, when I toyed around with the lists I felt like I had quite a few fun options to go around. I mean sure, there are some choices that seem like they'd be almost auto includes, but besides that?

    Also let's be real, a Sectorial that allows you total freedom to "mix and match to serve your style" usually isn't a thing in Infinity in most cases, if Dashat can do it, that's very cool for them...but I still couldn't give a rats ass about them as their look doesn't speak to me at all.

    On the other hand I can't wait to see my Foreign Legion on the table for the first time :-)

    But who knows, maybe you're right about them and I'm just in the pink glasses phase of the Sectorial still...or maybe my expectations just weren't as high as some others I guess.

    Interesting to see some of the List ideas here, my first try will most likely look something like this:

    Yeah maybe it's just not fitting to what I am looking for. Which is a shame since I really identify with the fluff of it, same goes for StarCo though so it's just another Nomad disappointment, which adds the salt.
