    Hi there!
    So after a long hiatus I'm considering getting back into infinity, and...well, I plyaed vanilla Yu Jing but with many models from other armies...so a pretty rag tag force, but visually cohesive due to paintjob and bases.

    I currently find myself with minies for each Dahshat unit except the Ariadna ones (no intention of ever grabbing a traktor mul or two) and well, no maggie currently.

    I finished the collection like yesterday since I found on an online store the old valerya gromoz (kneeling pose) and the old qapu kahlqui starter...with all those awesome minies with cool poses...djanbazan sniper, crouching oda spitire, 3 cool hafzas. Also grabbed a shonob kitsune to use as saito...all of these 50% off...not too bad!

    I can practically field at the same time the maximum AVA of any unit, barring the remotes (as I have only 3 S3 remotes) and biker units ( I have only 2 bikers). All models coming mostly from yu jing and haqq, with some jsa, pano, ariadna, nomad, aleph and combined models sprinkled in.

    And now?

    What should I look at first?

    Unpure fireteams still worth it I guess, I do struggle to fit in lists a pure core.

    I don't know many that do unmixed teams but Zuyong team is still great in Dashat. Diggers are good fillers too.

    I think Dashat is the only force that can take up to 5 figures with Baggage. Great for those missions that caaan use them.

    Maybe in a future take the maggie if you like the mini. You have a good base to start haqq generic or even try one of it's sectorials.

    Cheers.

    Maggie with mine dispenser is great! I had it used against me and it was a pain to deal with.

    Oh no...so, that bad.

    Yeah, well, my intention wasn't to start haqq actually...but to play a merc force with mainly merc units.

    Fireteam changes...well...yeah, they hurt but only if you have a core big team.
    Was planning on using haris, 3or 4 man core and irregulars a lot...uhm...

    The only true "Merc" troops in Dashat is the Brawlers. If you want more " mercs" I'd say Druze or Foreign Company, I can understand not wanting Maggy. I wouldn't get her unless they re-made her in siocast.

    I'd say just start off with your Yu Jing and add as you go. I do a lot of proxies.

    Like I said the Zuyong are still good.
    Not a fan of the Odalisques. Miranda counting as one is good though.
    A Brawler specialist with two Diggers is not bad.
    I want to try a Rafiq FTO+MBH duo.

    A TAG is on the wishlist. I'm honestly waiting/looking for one I really like and just use it as "the tag of the current army list".

    I proxy almost everything...I gather the model I like and then paint them the same...that's why I actually looked at dahshat...I happened to have 3/4 of the units...it was easy to fill the ranks.

    Miranda as Oda...what good does it do? +3 discover...but you're going to discover troops with rui shi and sensor rafiq anyways, no?

    Dahshat links...what's the current chart? is the army builder correct in that I can have assault duos made of any combination of the listed units and actually swap them all out for wildcards?

    I quite like the Dahshat unit combination. Making a yu jing vanilla list was getting kinda complicated, with all the similar units and the sheer amount of choices. I much prefer a simplified choice, although I'd do with another MI or two for variety...not that it's needed though.
    The best (or close to) LI in the game, with some good HIs and a cast of supporting pieces that are really interesting...what's not to like.

    Any reason why motorized abhs are irregular?

    And...ariadna support pieces...why are they included? I can't think of a reason to use the dozer or the 112 in place of other choices. And not really sure the traktor muls are useful.

    112 motorised is awesome. Smoke, doctor and motorbike with template weapon for really cheap. Great for getting to downed stuff quickly or grabbing objectives plus cheap enough for suicide template runs into clumped up teams

    @det considering there's few options in Infinity for tag in Maggie size, are you looking to upbase whatever tag you do find you like ?

    Traktor Muls are just for cheap orders. They also have baggage. 2 of them plus 2 panguliings, and Maggy with baggage, adds 100pts in missions that baggage is used.

    not really no. the whole range of infinity has been historically quite inconsistent with S values and mini dimensions...once there were no silhouettes, and mini poses were actually abused, arms or weapons sticking out too etc. Now there are some clearly S2 models that actually have S1 profiles, and some of the older models are slightly smaller than their S and some of the new ones are actually bigger than their S...so...no...it'll be what it'll be, and S value will vary between games.

    I'm looking for something that will be used as any of the Yu jing TAGs or the mag guard...so...well...whatever :D

    Dozer with Blitzen, or akrylat are great second line aro's pieces for very cheap, and they can push buttons. I do like them for Missions like Highly Classified or similar, and if you dont need them to do classifieds then the blitzen/akrylat can be ver threatening especialy for high value troops.

    It's mainly about orders. But there are three missions where Baggage helps. Frontline, Quadrant Control, and Supremacy.
