    Hey all,

    I haven't had a lot of changes to play much lately. I got my first chance to use an Arjuna last weekend... I played against MaF which neuters the emarats but didn't matter... I got my Arjuna sniped by a yaogat first turn due to some poor placement on my part...

    Anyone have some experiences I can live vicariously through?

    How have they been performing for everyone? I have a hard time putting them in lists they "feel" expensive but I really want to like them so I'm going to keep at it.

    Even against MAF you can run Assisted Fire on the Kiranbot to give it a Shock template ;)

    Good reminder, though that particular list lacked a regular hacking device. (Centered around a Shakti, hmg nco, Deva spitfire haris, which did good work).

    They're pretty solid for board control. The one time I used them they only had two orders spent on them to position on a flank, but nothing came near them, they totally denied the flank to my opponent

    I think e-marat is a non lethal weapon so you cannot give shock

    Nope, it's perfectly lethal :)

    Hello,

    Arjuna (the profiles, not the miniature) is one of the reasons to play OSS, you can have 2 of them. Arjuna is a fragile piece of attack but too a defensive (and frustrating) one. Even when the E/Marat don't work so well against rules as "veterans" or "morat", still you can stop HI, REMs or TAGs. And against "non hack units" you can deploy "cibermines" in order to do the rival loose orders trying to do "discover+shoot". If the corridor is not really wide, at least more than 6cm (3 inches) if you place the cibermine in half the enemy can't go throw the cibermine because is an enemy marker and you can't move "touching" the marker. So, you can use it to delay his turn. Even place the kinrabots in her way will made the enemy loose time and resources and you loose almost nothing.

    :)

    Go Arjuna, Go!!

    I tried the arjuna this weekend and she was my MVP. She is indeed fragile, and this is the main (only ?) problem i see with her. Still, she is a versatile troop who can both attack (fast, good weaponry, sync rems) and defend (she's no joke in suppressive fire, and her E/M rems can stop every rambo that is not veteran or morat). I don't really know what to do with the cybermines but it may be me.

    Only problem with her is that I find her very hard to fit into lists. OSS is a cramped place.
