    @RobertShepherd @barakiel I agree here. keep in mind that besides giving up an order, you also paying 1 extra SWC. Maybe she'll find some place in CA, or some LI Shas lists, but in my opinion the price is just too high for "improvements". Also it pisses me off that you can't combine protheion skill with CCWs. I wish light Sheskiin version had multi-terrain

    same, would love for LI Sheskiin to have multi terrain.


    the more I look at it the more i think the HI is a bit of a waste.

    Also, i find it strange that they would design her as a blunt HI model, seems to go against the whole "sneaky" shasvasti design.

    I'd would have liked her to be super mobile, super killy in cc and have a bunch of tools to help her get into cc.

    Light HI with ARM 3/BTS 3, no changes to Protheion level or CCW, Holoprojector L2 instead of Nanoscreeen, Heavy Shotgun instead of RF. The cost would be probably even higher, but she would've been an unholy nightmare in CQB, while still being managable at range.

    Id go something like...

    Maneuverability: Multi terrain
    Defensive ability: TO Camo or ODD
    Positioning: Forward deployment or Infiltration
    Melee Killyness: MA lvl 3-4 with DA CCW (Exp if you really want to make me happy)
    Medium to short rang engagement: Assault Pistols x 2

    You can keep fatality lvl 2 as its only going to help at short range.
    Remove wildcard, not being able to join a link will prevent broken shenanigans.


    Keeps the theme to "Hard to hit, but fragile when struck"

    Because this is Sheskiin designed for a game centred around Boarding actions where she needs to be blunt and doesn't have the opportunity to be sneaky.

    I really like it but I wish they had created a new character instead of make a new verson of Sheskin. But then the new character + Sheskin could be something didn’t want. I’ll definately try her out. I can see doing a small core team with Nox. Her + Nox HD + Nox LGL maybe.

    Alot of games have a Hatred mechanic specifically to allow mutliple units/characters without allowing certain combos. Would be a little tricky but certainly possible to do in Infinity.

    if we're patient, Corvus Belli will eventually realize that they need to implement a shared AVA system to deal with all of the character models, at least for what were originally low AVA troops. :face_with_head_bandage:

    Like they have in Ariadna already for the different dog breeds, because Sectorials apparently can't share werewolf loadouts?

    12pts isn't quite even a regular order in Shas (assuming you already took 2 Ikadrons and an R Drone) but then, that's the problem isn't it. If Shas had imetrons or 10-12 pt line troopers maybe, but I don't see her finding a place as is with how pts starved they are already. Might be different in Vanilla. Nice model and kinda cool. Glad she exists, but prob not taking her.
