    So, was toying around in the Army Builer for a bit.
    How would this work for a starting out Limited Insertion list?

    The idea behind this is really just me grabbing an Al Fasid from our local Haqq player, grabbing a Krakot, taking the Cube Jager I won, grabbing the Scarface and Druze kits and grabbing the Ninja kit to start out.

    If you are going to run 4 Druze you might as well chuck in a Tanko too.
    Tbh though it looks fairly soft imo, sure you could run it if you own the models but I think it will be an uphill battle.
    In general I find that mi links, s5 Hi, jager and tags are all 'matter of taste' rather than flat out power, even beyond Ikari.

    i think people keep forgetting about fatality level 1 with druze. the shock marksmanship rifle in a 3+ link turns into a redfury for 0swc with dam14 b4 + shock. Thats pretty good imo.

    I like the Druze but for Limited I REALY like the Wu Ming. I'd think I'd do another Wu Ming instead of the Karakuri but it's a good excuse to use all the toys! Besides, they are really good! Of course Armand could be replaced by a Druze of some flavor but he can be really hard to deal with if no one has MSV.

    That looks like fun, but if you're going to take a Wu Ming core, the TinBot for deflector is just about as critical as it gets. Additionally, a ninja KHD is going to be really helpful to keep enemy AHDs off of them.

    It's under a few points, but it's not worth spending them anywhere I could find, and not worth adding a warcor, which would risk you losing 2 orders if you go first. I tried to keep it as similar to your list as I could otherwise. Personally, I'd probably drop the Rui Shi, since there is no smoke, and work in a Daiyokai or Al Fasid.

    Kinda like this:

    I think one of the most important things is the EVO REM. Team Pro is essential to keep Wu Ming link going. In mine I thought of the Tinbot guy but took the Harris instead because he's a back up to keep a link going.

    Yeah, that's what I figured it was there for, and I agree about running the Haris guy, but I think that it's not worth taking an EVO for the main job of keeping TeamPro up, you're only missing the SSL2 bonus by using Haris after one dies. In my list above you could swap the MULTI down to the Haris profile and have a few points to play with.

    I love that linked BS13 Grenade launcher too much! You gotta love spec-fire on that team! BS13 -6 spec fire, +3 Range, +3 Link, oh wait also targeted? +3 my friend!

    Not to forget that if it is targeted, then you are hitting on a... 21 if you are within range and have a full link. Since Targeted removes the -6 MOD for Speculative Fire, no?

    Yes! I'm glad to be wrong! Targeted waves the -6 and still gives +3. So +3 Range, +3 Team, +3 Targeted, BS13= 21!

    But even without the Targeted he's fantastic. -6 spec, +3 Team, +3 Range. BS13. Still really good.

    Now another thing about the LGL Wu MIng. Not only being 0 SWC, but the direct fire is still good with the 2 burst and taking away the cover bonus for ARM save.

    In addition to all that, think of the fun also to be had with the the Guided Missile Clipper! Hopefully you've also taken an EVO Remote. which waves the -6 to Sat-Lock with the FO remote. The only thing Guided does is give a +6 so it's hitting on 18s. You can't add the team bonus :(

    Here is the total collection of all the Ikari Company articles I’ve written over the last few months. At first, I really didn’t see the appeal in The Company, but now, after getting some experience with them, I really do love how they play. If you want an interesting, heavy infantry focused army, with raw hitting power, then the Ikari Company really is for you.
