    That will depent on his price Tag. If he´s in the same spot like Tai I would still go with Haidao if I want an engineer in my link.
    Speaking of Tai I rather wan´t to see her render than a necomer.

    You're assuming that Krit is an actual Zuyong, though.

    Remember how we all thought that IA troops were going to all have 2W?

    I'm gonna count on one hand all the times I've needed a HI Engineer in Vanilla....

    It's never. I've never needed one.

    Him being an engineer isn't what's gonna make this model useful due to his e/m vulnerabilities. His combat capabilities are whats gonna matter.

    Yes I am but it's because the rest of the Zuyong are. I doubt, can be wrong, that he would be an exception. Carlos said he's a Zuyong heavy so i'll take it.

    Maybe you haven't but have you really had a choice to take one? You had only the Mech Engineer only for a long time. Also, he's still a specialist for the buttons Engineer or not.

    I will say this, i'm not psyched about an Engineer who himself can be immobilized by EM. if he can't be immobilized he could at least fix his own isolation.

    I have had the choice to take one. The Haidao already exists and I've never wanted one of those and they're under 30pts.

    I have never had a game where I have reflected upon it and gone "Wow, I really could've done with a HI Engineer right there." There has never been a situation where that has even been remotely applicable. I've had more games where I've regretted cutting a 3pt Yaozao than I have thought an HI engineer was necessary and I can already take an HI Engineer if I really need one.

    He is a specialist for buttons, but given that he's a more costly specialist than say specialist operative I'd rather they just give him the points discount if he's gonna be a useless engineer, and as far as solo HI beatstick/specialist goes in Vanilla he's gotta fight over the spot with Tai Sheng and that's a bloody hard ask because she's a WIP14 FO with NCO.

    A HI Doctor that has some ability to fight? Now that would've been a way more interesting release to make. An Engineer on the other hand? Unless it comes with E/M immunity nobody is gonna give a shit about him beyond his ability to fight things.

    I agree about Doctor! I've had whole team of Janisaries come back at me after almost all being down. The Akbar Doctor comes along and gets them all back up.

    What I'm hoping for is the engineer is basically a fluff reason to make him a 0 SWC minelayer. We're missing those since Yuriko fucked off.

    Give him the SMG discount, fuck give him the frenzy discount too that rule is a joke anyway its only real purpose is to discount shit these days and he's clearly an angry boi he's taken his helmet off. Make him like a 28pt 0SWC minelayer and he'll worth stuffing into Zuyong links just because he brings mines to the party.

    I mean... it literally says his ICS is "Krit Kokram, Invinicble Zuyong Specialist" at the bottom of his render

    Remind me how many models dossiers and fluff said they're in IA yet aren't?
